Hello and welcome to another weekend!

For literacy, we are still looking at 'Explanation Texts'. We are focusing on finding information about a pet and what is needed for them to be healthy and happy! Have a go at the game below. It is a fun game but also shows how many different things you have to do with a pet.

For maths, we are learning how to use the data in Tally Charts. We can use all kinds of things on a tally chart. Have a go at the game below. Make sure you read the questions twice before putting an answer - you may need to move your scroll bar up and down to see the questions. Have fun while learning!

For your maths homework - 

Go through the times tables each day. We have been doing the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

Continue to look at previous weeks homework to help you to remember all the work we have been doing recently.

Take a look at the links below. Each game is different so try a different one out each day.

https://wordwall.net/resource/553405/maths/number-bonds-to-20

https://wordwall.net/resource/4355416/math/addition-to-20-wac-a-mole

For literacy, we have been concentrating on poetry still. Can you list the features of a poem?

Here is the poem we have been learning and identifying the features of.

 

Catch me the Moon, Daddy

Catch me the moon, Daddy,

Let it shine on me a while.

Catch me the moon, Daddy,

I want to touch it's smile.

 

The moon must shine

From high above;

That's where it needs to stay -

Amongst the stars,

To guide them home

When they return from play.

 

And as for you, my child,

With slender silver thread

The moon will weave 

Sweet dreams, so you

May slumber in your bed.

 

See if you can remember the actions you put to the poem and show someone at home how we performed it.

Google Cosmic Yoga and Joe Wicks to keep you active. If you find one that you really like, let us know when we return to school and we can do it all together.

Have a lovely week (and one day) off! We look forward to seeing you all when we return!

 

Friday 11th February 2022

We are nearly at the end of this half term. One more week to go before we have a week off school!

https://wordwall.net/resource/23888025/alliteration

For maths, we are still looking at addition and subtraction and how they work well together! Follow the link below. It is the same as last week but try and challenge yourself! If you can, write down your own fact families - 6+4=10, 4+6=10, 10-4=6, 10-6=4. See how many you can do over the weekend!

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/number-facts/number-fact-families

Please bring in any work you have done for us to look at on Monday! It can be done on a scrap piece of paper if you cannot find your green book!

Have a lovely weekend!

For maths work, we have been looking at addition/subtraction families. Have a go at the game I have put on below. Only do the addition and subtraction ones and start off with the 'Up to 10' ones. Some of you may feel you want to do the next level so go on the the 'Up to 20' or even the 'Up to 50' ones. If you really want to challenge yourselves, try the 'Up to 100' ones but only if you have been getting the previous ones correct. Have fun and let us know how you get on when you return to school on Monday.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/number-facts/number-fact-families

Keep practicing your times tables. Try and see if someone at home will join in and say them with you while doing the actions we do in class. I am sure you will all enjoy doing them.

Because you enjoyed the Cosmic yoga with Sonic, I have shared the link with you here. Do your best and have fun!
