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 sentence with the word 'their' 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 represent numbers to 50

 

Today we will be using the part whole model and base ten to represent numbers to 50. 

Now that we understand how numbers are made of tens and ones, this will help us when partitioning.

 

 

In a part whole model, we partition 35 into tens and ones like this. 

 

It is the same answer but displayed in a different way. 

Have a go at the questions below and see how you get on!

PHONICS

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

Yesterday you looked at 'o' when it makes the 'u' sound. 

Have a look at the video below and see how many words use this spelling. 

When you have finished, your task today is to write a very short story using some of the words below. It can be as silly as you like laugh

 

  monkey          won          Monday          brother          glove

'o' making the 'u' sound

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.

WALT use conjunctions 'and', 'but' and 'so'

 

Today we are going to be learning about conjunctions. 

 

These conjunctions are used in sentences to link words, clauses or phrases together.

We have used 'and' in our work before. 

 

 

Your task today is to see which conjunctions fits best in each of the sentences you have been given. Say the sentences out loud and see which conjunction makes sense.

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

Each subject should take you an hour to complete.

Science WALT identify and name some common plants

Have you been learning the names of the plants on the ‘Identifying Common Plants’ activity sheet from last week?

Now is your chance to show us how many you know!

See if you can match up the labels to the correct picture. Can you get 12 out of 12?

Now use all you have learnt over the last 3 weeks to help you complete all the clues for the ‘Escape Room’ activity below.

 

WALT Observe closely

If you have time: have a go at drawing a plant. You could try to find a plant to draw on a walk or in your garden. But, with it being winter, there are not many plants to choose from! You could look through the photo cards from last week and choose you favourite flowering plant from there.

Once you have chosen your plant, draw, name and describe it. You could write a sentence about why it is your favourite too. Send us your lovely pictures by email if you can.

Here is my example:

Mindfulness

 

After all of the winter weather we have had this week, we would love you to spend some time outdoors this afternoon compelting a winter hunt.

 

There is a checklist below of things that we would like you to look out for on your walk but if you see any other signs of winter then be sure to add it to your list. 

 

Happy hunting smiley
