I hope you have had a good half term! Some of you will be returning to school this week so you will be working in the classroom which will be lovely, we are slowly starting to get back to a different normality.
I have included spellings this week! Please test children every Monday.
Just want to say a big thank you to you all for all your hard work, I know this isn’t easy and yet you have produced some excellent work, well done. Please let me know if you have any issues or if you struggle to understand something, I am always here to help.
Maths – Keep practising your times tables!
The worksheets for White Rose Maths are no longer on the website, so you can find them attached below. You may still wish to watch the videos so please still follow the link.
Year 1 - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
Year 2 - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/
Please start with summer term, week 6, lessons 1-4. Record the answers in your maths book. You don’t necessarily need to write the questions out, unless the adult teaching you wants you to, as it may be easier to mark.
The worksheets are fairly simple so I would suggest doing some work practically. This will help with understanding.
EXTRA (optional) – I have added mastery sheets for both year 1 and year 2, for those of you who find the work easy and want to push themselves, feel free to have a go.
Phonics - please follow the link:
Literacy - This week we are going to be looking at the story ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’. (All work to be completed in your books, don’t forget capital letters, full stops and finger spaces!)
Day 1 – WALT order and sequence the events of a story Follow the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ir_B5AfYrrg
Spend some time exploring the front cover of the book. Who is the author? What type of book do you think this will be? Can you describe the front cover?
Watch or read the story ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’.
Day2 – WALT understand what a character may be thinking and feeling.
Day 3 – WALT use some speech punctuation accurately.
Day 4 – WALT write a recount in the past tense.
Ask the children, what questions would you like to ask the little old lady? Questions might be What were you doing before the old man arrived? How did you feel when you were told to bring in your hen?
Today the children are going to write a diary. Use resource 4a and record ideas in note form. Read through the model resource 4b.
Day 5 – WALT use past tense accurately and to use conjunctions in my writing.
Look at the following sentences:
The little old lady was fed up.
The hen laid an egg.
The goat chewed the curtains.
The woman took in her pig.
Can they extend these sentences using the following conjunctions? and, but, for, so, because, even though, until.
Example: The little old lady was fed up because her house was small.
The woman took in her pig, but it raided the larder.
Today the children are going to plan and write some new scenes for the story. What other animals might the old lady bring into her house? What might these animals do? (parents, you could model how to use a range of conjunctions if they are struggling)
