2D Shapes

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute to Meet to talk you through your learning today.

We will be learning about 2D shapes today and looking for some of the properties for each one. We will look at some irregular shapes that don't look like the standard shape we might be familiar with.

Task 1:

On page 32 only, please answer questions 1 and 2.

Task 2:

Go on a scavenger hunt around your home to find some of the 2D shapes we have discussed today. Check for patterns on fabrics, cereal boxes or toys to see how many you can find.

Be on the look out for some irregular shapes or shapes in a different orientation than you may be familiar with. Take a photo of some of your favourites and send them through to me on ClassDojo.

Challenge: Which shape did you find the greatest amount of?


10:35 - 11:35

English - Colourful semantics.

Build and write a sentence.

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute to Meet to talk you through your learning today.

We will be using our colourful semantics grids to build up a sentence for this picture today. 

Use the question prompts: who? what doing? and what? to build up your sentence. Cut out and place your cards into the correct boxes and add in the special blue "carrot" shaped cards to build a full sentence. (Please DO NOT stick your cards onto your grid. We typically do this in class but as you only have one grid, you will need to keep it for use another day please.) Once you have done, open up your Blue Writing Book and use your sounds to write down your sentence. Don't forget to include:

  • capital letters
  • finger spaces
  • full stops

Send me a photo of your completed sentence through ClassDojo.

Colourful Semantics

This video explains how we use Colourful Semantics in Year 1 to help us write sentences.

11:35 - 12:00


Speed sound lesson

Please follow the link below to the RWI speed sounds lesson. Please choose the Set 3 sound lesson unless I have messaged you otherwise. You have the option to also join in with the spelling video to match the sound should you wish.



For today, choose a book that you have read before and see if you can read by "Fredding in your Head" (not sounding it out) all the way through. I will be sharing an online library with you tomorrow.


1:20 - 2:20



Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute to Meet to talk you through your learning today.

We will be considering what qualities a perfect friend would have. They might be:

  • kind
  • helpful
  • trustworthy
  • make you feel included

In the Bible, the following passage teaches Christians the power that friendship has and how it is important to our lives.

Two are better than one,

because they have a good return for their labour:

If either of them falls down,

one can help the other up.

But pity anyone who falls

and has no one to help them up.

Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.

But how can one keep warm alone?

Though one may be overpowered,

two can defend themselves.

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.


Task: Draw or write down what your perfect friend would be like.
