Good morning to you all,
I hope that you all had a good day yesterday and that you managed to enjoy the lovely weather as well do some home learning. We know each day has different challenges so just do what is manageable for you and your family. Focus on the tasks on the year group pages and then complete any topic work which you can. We know that many of you are learning lots from doing other tasks you have chosen to do independently such as baking and making models and these things are valuable too so make home learning fun and a great experience for you all as a family!
Things to do today...
Continue to revise your sounds by tuning into the Read, Write Inc. lesson with Rosie. Anytime from 9.30am. Complete the reading of the sound and also the spelling video. The sound today is 'oi'.
It would also be beneficial to join in with the other 2 short videos; 'Red Words 2' and 'Reading Longer Words'. These videos are only 5 minutes each and are key to children becoming confident and fluent readers.
It's time to have a little spelling test and start learning some new spellings! Please test your child on the spellings set before the holidays and then give them a new set of spellings for this week. Remember to carry on practising any spellings your child struggled with previously.
Today is the first lesson learning about finding quarters. Use the PowerPoint presentation lesson 1 to explore how different shapes can be split into quarters. Discuss the following questions:
What is a quarter?
How can you recognise a quarter?
Can you split this into quarters?
Is there more than one way to split this into quarters?
How else could we split it into quarter?
How can we check we have split the shape correctly?
Can we use a line to split this shape into quarters?
How many equal parts does this shape have?
In your Home Learning folder you should find the sheet called 'Make quarters'. Children should split the shapes into quarters and stick them in their Home Learning book. There is also an activity called 'Colour a quarter' which you may enjoy doing.
