Tuesday 2nd June

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 Word Time and the Spelling lesson. 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. 

Yesterday you started to learn about some deep sea explorers. I know lots of you found it interesting to learn about some of the amazing things Jacques Cousteau did. Today you have a comprehension challenge to complete. This is a different type of comprehension, instead of having something to read you have a picture to read! We can learn a lot from what we see as well as what we can read. The picture may really get you thinking! Here is the picture and your worksheet is available to download. You can print out the sheet or write in your Home Learning books. Have fun talking about the picture, I've included the web link to the picture so you can access a range of tasks linked to it if you wish.

Comprehension Challenge


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's maths lesson focuses on describing turns. To start with watch the short video (link below) about clockwise and anti-clockwise turns. Then share the PowerPoint presentation lesson 1. Whilst working through the presentation discuss the following questions:


What would the shape look like if it’s turned __?
What do you notice when you turn a shape a full turn clockwise / anticlockwise?
What do you notice when you turn a shape a half turn clockwise / anticlockwise?


Complete the worksheet called 'Drawing Turns', selecting your own level of challenge. There is also an additional activity called 'Drawing Turns' which you can complete if you wish.
