Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero

Monday 6th July

Good morning Galileo children and parents,


I hope you are all well and enjoying being able to get out and about a bit more. Today you have some reading tasks and some maths work to do which is slightly different to normal. As always, please choose a topic lesson from the Topic page for your afternoon work.



Today you have your Read, Write Inc. reading and spelling tasks as you always do on a Monday. Please watch the following videos:


  • Word Time - learning the sound and reading the words. Today's sound is 'ur'
  • Spellings - learning how to spell words using the 'ur' sound.
  • Reading Red Words 2
  • Reading Longer Words including the 'oo' sound.


It would be great if you could also complete the 'Read and Hold a Sentence' task as this makes you think carefully about spelling words and using punctuation when writing sentences. 

This week we are travelling into space and learning about famous astronauts and also some who are fictional. Today I would like you to read the Read, Write Inc. non-fiction book called 'A Place in Space: the Moon'. This is a Grey level book so provides quite a lot of challenge, don't worry if you need a little more help with the reading that normal. Remember to practise the sounds and read the Story words, Speedy words and Red words before reading the book. 


It's time to have a little spelling test and start learning some new spellings! Please test your child on the spellings from last week and then give them a new set of spellings to learn. In school we will be testing the children on stage 26 and giving them stage 27 to learn. 

Our Maths Learning Today


We are trying a slightly different maths presentation this week; which includes videos of our learning focus. We hope that you will enjoy this slight change; which still follows the national curriculum as we have throughout our home schooling period. This week we are going to look again at number and place value to 100. I know our Year 1's in school will be pleased to consolidate our understanding of this; some of us were a little rusty!wink

Written tasks


Whilst this is one worksheet, the questions increase in difficulty as they go along. Today I think you can complete all of these!

Written task 1... write the answers into your green book if you don't have access to a printer


Head over to the Topic page today to choose your lesson. The children in school will be learning about compass points in Geography and learning the songs in Music. Have a great day. smiley
