Literacy - plan your own version of the story you explored last week in Literacy -The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch.  Draw your ideas onto the planning sheet and label.  Choose new characters, a new setting, a new animal to steal the sandwiches etc.  complete your plan on the sheet below.  In class, we changed the lighthouse keeper to a police officer, the seaside to a town, the seagulls to pigeons and the hot mustard to some hot chilli sauce.  Watch the story again on YouTube.

Good Morning everyone.

Below you will find the power-points and resources for this morning's lesson.

Today is World Book Day, so we are having a whole class Zoom lesson at 10.30am so that you can see your friends at home or in school dressed up as their favourite book character.  If you do get dressed up, please be prepared to talk about your book character or favourite book during the Zoom lesson.

Have a lovely day!!

1.Read out loud to an adult for 15 minutes and practice reading your key words.

There are some reading comprehensions linked to animals that you could read if you want to.  There are some questions to go with them too.  They are on Monday's page of resources. Remember there are 3 levels for each topic.  For example, the Javan Rhino reading comprehension - the first one is easier and the 3rd one is harder.

Don't forget - if you have finished the key words on your list, there is a copy of the year 1 and 2 key words on Monday's learning, that you need to be able to read and write.  Ask an adult to tick off the ones that you can already read instantly (no sounding out).  Make some flashcards for 10 that you don't know yet and practice those.

2. Practice your 'Number Learn Its' for this week and practice your spellings.

You can also use the Year 1 and 2 Key Word Checklist  (above) to keep a personal record of the words that you can/can't spell.  Try to choose a few new key words from the list each week to learn how to spell.

 

The new Number Learn Its and Spellings for this half term were on last Monday's page - please ask if you are unsure which ones you would usually be given in class.

  • Divide by 2, 5 and 10 questions (e.g. 30 ÷ 5 = )

 

L.C. Can I make patterns using 2D shapes?

 

Main: Work through the power-point and answer the questions together.  There are fluency, reasoning and problem solving style questions.

 

Task: Complete the make patterns with 2D worksheets. Remember to complete the level you would be given in class (1 star, 2 star or 3 star). 

 

Challenge: Complete the make patterns with 2D Shapes Mastery Cards

4. English Lesson 

 

L.C. Can I write the new version of the story?

 

Look at and discuss the success criteria - all of the things I would like to see in your writing:

 

  • Use of subordinating conjunctions (when, if, because)
  • Use coordinating conjunctions (and, or, but),
  • Use time conjunctions to open a sentence (One day, One night, A few months later,)
  • Use adverbs to open a sentence (e.g. Slowly, Carefully, Quickly, Happily, Grumpily,)
  • Use expanded noun phrases (the tiny seed, the hot rays, the lonely fields, the icy mountainside)
  • Use of repetition in sentences (e.g. higher and higher and higher, deeper and deeper and deeper)
  • Use the past tense

 

Use the resolution/ending parts of the story map you altered on Friday using the slips of paper/post-it notes, to retell the new resolution/ending parts of the story (see sheet below) from the new plant starts to grow to the end when the seeds ail away in the air again.

Good morning everyone.

Below you will find the power-points and resources for today's lessons.  In Maths, our topic is 2D and 3D shape.  This lesson will be on Zoom at 10.30am.

In English, we are continuing to look at a book called 'The Tiny Seed'.   The afternoon's lesson is PE - Mr Cannon has put a clip for our KS1 PE lesson on Dojo Class Story.

Please remember to submit your 2 pieces of work for today (English and Maths) via the portfolio section of our Class Dojo.

Have a lovely day everyone.

1. Phonics - revision of 'ir' digraph

 

Read the 'ir' words on the power-point, using your blending skills to read each word.  Notice that 'ir' comes in the middle of the word.

 

Task - Word Search - can you find the words with the 'ir' digraph in?   

 

Challenge - Write 5 sentences using 5 different 'ir' words and try to use a subordinating conjunction in the sentence (when/if/so/because).  For example, The bird flew away when the cat appeared.

2.Read out loud to an adult for 15 minutes and practice reading your key words.

There are some reading comprehensions linked to our Science topic on Plants that you could read if you want to.  There are some questions to go with them too.  Remember there are 3 levels for each topic.  For example, the Sunflower reading comprehension - the first one is easier and the 3rd one is harder.

Don't forget - if you have finished the key words on your list, there is a copy of the year 1 and 2 key words on Monday's learning, that you need to be able to read and write.  Ask an adult to tick off the ones that you can already read instantly (no sounding out).  Make some flashcards for 10 that you don't know yet and practice those.

3. Practice your 'Number Learn Its' for this week and practice your spellings.

You can also use the Year 1 and 2 Key Word Checklist  (above) to keep a personal record of the words that you can/can't spell.  Try to choose a few new key words from the list each week to learn how to spell.

 

The new Number Learn Its and Spellings for this half term are on Monday's page - please ask if you are unsure which ones you would usually be given in class.
