Morning Job

Our new tricky word is:

Read the word. Remember tricky words cannot be sounded out like most of the words we read in phonics.

 

When you are confident you can read the word,

 

Look at it, say it, cover it, write it, check it

 

If you spell it correctly 3 times in a row, write a sentences with the word 'one' in.

MATHS

Please remember, your child should be spending 1 hour on Maths a day. Half an hour of this lesson is delivered on zoom and the second half an hour is available in Teach it, Twist it and Deepen it activities. Please do not access these activities until after the Zoom session. Thank you.

WALT use number facts

 

Take a look at the 10 frames below.

Here are some examples of the calculations that can be made using this number fact:

 

 

We could also have:

 

20 = 15 + 5

20 = 5 + 15

5 = 20 - 15

15 = 20 - 5

PHONICS

You should be spending half an hour a day on your phonics activities.

 

Today we will be revising the phase 3 digraph 'er'.

There are 2 other ways to spell this sound: 'ur' and 'ir'.

We have looked at both of these digraphs recently.

 

Read the words in the poster below paying particular attention to where each digraph is in each word.

Choose 3 words from each column to write a sentence.

Challenge: Can you write a sentence with a word from each column? Maybe even more than one!

E.g. The bird and the turtle wrote a letter to the otter.

ENGLISH

Please remember, your child should be spending 1 hour on English a day. 

Half an hour of this lesson is delivered on zoom and the second half an hour is available in the uploaded activities. Please do not access these activities until after the Zoom session. Thank you.

SPaG WALT use capital letters for names

 

Capital letters are very important when we write.

Today we will be using capital letters for naming the days of the week.

 

Write the days of the week in the correct order making sure to remember the capital letters at the start of each day name.

 

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

Each subject should take you an hour to complete.

Science WALT identify a variety of plants

 

We are going to continue learning about plants in science. Last week, we learnt about trees. Can you remember what deciduous and evergreen mean? Tell an adult. Can you list the main parts of a tree?

 

Some trees produce flowers and fruit. The buds that grow into flowers are found at the end of the twigs. Lots of other plants produce flowers too.

 

Today we are going to take a closer look at some different flowering plants. Flowers can be found both in the wild and in our gardens. Some flowering plants are grown and cut for us to keep in vases in our homes. Bunches of flowers can be given as gifts (e.g for a birthday, Valentines Day or Mother’s Day).

 

Have a look at the photo cards of wild and garden plants. (Can you spot the non-flowering plants?) Do you recognise any of these plants already?

 

Now have a go at naming the plants in the activity below. How many do you know already?
 

Your challenge: Over the next week, keep practising matching the name label to the common plants. Next Friday we will see if you now know more of the flowering plants.

 

 

Science WALT name the parts of a flowering plant

 

Look through the PowerPoint slides ‘Parts of a Flowering Plant’ and watch the BBC Schools clip.

Label the parts of a flowering plant and match the statements to the correct part.

Mindfulness

Have a lovely weekend!
