Today is your second read of the book 'Beast Feast', Your challenge is to read more words than yesterday without sounding out. I know there are lots of tricky words in this book so don't worry if you need a bit of help with some of them. You may find it helpful to discuss the words found at the beginning of the book before reading again


Year 1 

Your maths today focuses on finding one more and ones less than numbers. You will need some counters to do this so use whatever you have which is suitable at home whether it's pasta, lego or sweets! This lesson is over two days. Today you only need to complete question 1 of the worksheet as you will do the rest tomorrow after you've watched a different video. If you do want to do more, you could always choose different numbers within 50 to find one more or one less than.

Beech Has Got Talent Rehearsals

As you only have until Friday to prepare yourself for your live performance we thought you may like some time to practise your act for 'Beech Has Got Talent'. Have fun practising your act. Remember, if you are struggling to think about what to do, you can always just bring a piece of your favourite work to share.
