Good morning Beech families,
Welcome back to the start of a new half term. We hope you have all had a restful break and that you are ready for lots of new learning!
This is our learning for today:
We had a lovely surprise on Wednesday when we received a beautiful video from Olivia, where she had filmed her own Wednesday Word. We thought that this was just too lovely to keep to ourselves and so here it is to share with you...thank you Olivia for being happy to share this with all of your friends!
If anyone else would like to film a short prayer, poem or reflection do send them to us!
If you are on track with your spellings, then Year 1 children should be tested on stage 33 and Year 2 children be tested on stage 44 today. That means that today, Year 1 new spellings are Stage 34 and Year 2 Spellings are stage 45. If you are a little behind, don't worry. Just continue where you left off before half term.
Today the Set 2 sound is 'oo' and the Set 3 sound is 'oa'. Please watch the following short videos:
Please remember that reading and spelling words using the sound for the day is the priority, and that the other videos are there for you to to use if you have the time and want to do a little extra.
We have some new books to read on the Oxford Owl website which is exciting! The Year 1 book this week is called 'A House for a Mouse' and the Year 2 book is called 'Tricking a Dragon'. Read the sounds, Green words and Red words at the beginning of the book before reading for the first time.
Our Maths Learning Today
Today we continue with our learning with numbers up to 50. You will be asked to demonstrate your understanding of less than, greater than and equal to through various statements and questions.
Here is your teaching video for today...
Today you will see two teaching videos. The first introduces you to drawing and understanding pictograms where the value of each picture or symbol on a chart is more than one. It could be 2,5 or 10. See if you can use this video to help complete the charts as you go along. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil.
Today we are continuing to find out about habitats, before we start our new learning I thought you may enjoy a quiz to think back about what we have learnt so far! Some of these questions you will know the answers to and others will make you think!
