Maths

On pages 26 and 27 we will be finding one half and one quarter. Whenever we find half, we share into two equal groups, when we find a quarter, we split it into four equal groups.

  1. Circle half of the shells, remember: two equal groups.
  2. Circle the shapes that have half coloured in.
  3. Split the crabs into four equal groups and circle one quarter.
  4. Split each shape into four equal pieces and colour in one quarter.

Extra Challenge

You have eight lollies. Follow the instructions to colour in them in.

 

Grammar

On page 1, we will be looking at the "ee" family of sounds. The letters ee: what can you see?, ea: cup of tea, ie: thief in the field, e-e: go Pete and Steve and y: funny tummy all make the same sound.

  1. Cross out each underlined word that has the wrong sound choice.
  2. Write the ai family sounds to complete the words. Remember: ay: may I play? is usually found at the end of a word.
  3. Match the words to the correct ee family sound choice.

Week Commencing 29.6.20

I am looking to collect some photos of the activities you have been completing this week, so please send me in an update by 3pm today on ClassDojo. I want to be able to share these on the school Facebook page and it will be a great chance for children to see what their friends have been up to. It will also be great to keep up our sense of belonging if we can have a photo from everyone to share! Thank you.

Find page 6 with Geraldine the Giraffe. See if you can find things around the house with the ur, ow, o-e, are and ow sounds. If you need inspiration to help you, watch the videos that match the sounds on YouTube. 

 

Talk for Writing

We will be working from page 13 today. Ever good pirate needs a hat. Follow the instructions on how to make a pirate hat out of newspaper. Use it to role play a pirate at home.

 

Maths

We are working from pages 16 and 17. You knew your number bonds to ten really well before we locked down. Do you remember the pairs of numbers that add together to make ten? (You can use your fingers!) Today we will be finding the number bonds to twenty, but here's an easy trick. 20 = 10 + 10. So if we know two numbers to make ten, we just need to add on ten more. For example, 5 + 5 = 10 so to get to twenty, add ten to one of the parts, 15 + 5 = 20.

Now Try These

  1. Match the pairs of numbers that make ten.
  2. Match the pairs of number that make twenty. Remember the trick of adding ten more.
  3. Count how many buttons are on each shirt. Use objects, drawings or a counting on mental strategy to find out what you need to add on to get to twenty.
  4. Use your know facts of number pairs to twenty to help you find the missing numbers. You can use the maths stories from the top of page 16 to help you.

An Extra Challenge

This is a puzzle that needs you to first match the pairs of numbers that make thirty. Once you have done that, match your found number to the letter and spell out the two hidden words.

 

Grammar

On page 10 we will be looking at question sentences. Remember, a question sentence is the only type of sentence where you get an answer back. For these sentences, you need to punctuate it with a question mark.

  1. Circle the question marks in the sentences. Look closely at where they are in each sentence.
  2. Add in the missing question marks.
  3. Some of these sentences are question sentences and need to be matched to a question mark. Some are statement sentences that do not get an answer. These need to end with the usual full stop.
