Friday 22nd May

English – YEAR 1 AND 2 TOGETHER

Today, you are going to finish creating your fact file for your role as astronaut tour guide. I would like you to use your planning sheet from Wednesday to finish the fact file you began yesterday. You may want to use the presentation from Tuesday to help you structure your fact file too!

You are going to need to write some short paragraphs giving the reader extra details about the topic you have chosen to write about.

When you have finished writing, go through your work with your green pen and check your spellings and see if you can make your work even better! You can use your home-learning pack to help you write and edit your work.

Spellings – YEAR 2 ONLY

We are going to carry on with this week’s spellings. Can you remember what we were looking at?

Today is the last day of this week’s spellings using some of our months of the year. Can you write some silly sentences and some sensible sentences using your new words? The words for this week can be found here if you need a reminder.

Maths – YEAR 1 ONLY

Today in maths we are going to carry on our revision of all the skills we have learnt this week.

If you need help remembering how to do any of these, watch the videos from earlier this week to help you!

Once again, you have a regular set of questions here which I would like you to complete, as well as an extra challenge here if you are feeling up to it afterwards!

Maths – YEAR 2 ONLY

Today in maths we are going to continue our revision of shapes, specifically looking at comparing shapes.

Story Time

The next chapter of your class story can be found below…

 

I would like you to listen to today’s chapter.  From this, I have picked out 5 words that you can talk to someone at home about the meaning of, just like we do at school. There will also be some questions for you to have a go at answering.

Please click here for your reading questions and vocabulary today.

Year 1 children will need support with this and you will need to talk it through with them. If these questions are too tricky, don’t worry, just listen to the extract and come up with some of your own simpler questions or maybe draw a picture of something that happened in the story to show your understanding. There is a bookmark of possible questions here that might help.

Year 2 children might also like to look up the meaning online or in a dictionary and maybe think of some other words that you know which mean something similar. You could also try putting your new vocabulary words in a sentence too for a challenge once you know what they mean.

The questions can be done as a discussion, the children do not need to write their answers down – we would not normally do written answers in school; the year 2 children would normally do 1 or 2 written ones, but only after discussion.

 

Thursday 21st May

English – YEAR 1 AND 2 TOGETHER

Today, you are going to begin creating your fact file all about space! Make sure you use the facts and research you did yesterday to help you.

I would like you to begin by coming up with a fun and catchy title, put who the author is (that would be you!) and draw a picture with a caption which tells The Cat in the Hat what it is you have drawn. As well as this, I would like you to write an introduction for your fact file.  This will include what the specific part of space it is you have chosen to write about, and why. You may want to use the presentation from Tuesday to help you structure your introduction too.

When you have finished writing, go through your work with your green pen and check your spellings and see if you can make your work even better! You can use your home-learning pack to help you write and edit your work.

Spellings – YEAR 2 ONLY

Story Time

Wednesday 20th May

It looks like The Cat in the Hat is looking for a new astronaut partner to help give space tours! He needs to make sure you are up to the job first, so has asked you to write him a fact file all about space!

A good tip when you google is to put ‘for kids’ at the end of your search – this will mean you get more appropriate websites with simple information that the children are more likely to understand.

You need to choose a specific part of space to tell your reader all about – this might be a specific planet, all about stars, or anything else you can think of!

You might want to use books or the internet to help you with this. Maybe ask a grown-up to give you a hand looking up some fun facts!  Year 2 might want to make some notes about their research ready for their writing and year 1 parents you might want to write notes for your child when they find out something that interests them or just save the page ready for when they are writing later in the week!

Spellings – YEAR 2 ONLY

We are going to carry on with this week’s spellings. Can you remember what we were looking at? Have a go at completing the handwriting sheet here (if you really want a challenge, try giving the ‘Continuous Cursive’ sheet a go here)! Make sure you use your left hand to hold your page steady, sit up straight and use a sharp pencil. Once you have finished your handwriting, complete the word search here  and there is a challenge here if you would like it too!

Maths – YEAR 1 AND 2 TOGETHER

Hi Elm Class! Today in maths we are going to start revision of division, specifically halving or dividing by 2!

If you need a reminder of how to work this out, please watch the video below to recap how we do the preferred method; we will practice a question together in this.

I have attached a set of questions, one for Year 1 which can be found here and one for Year 2 which can be found here, which I would like you to complete.  Please try and use our preferred method from the video. If you think you are up to the extra challenge after, there is a question for you to complete to really put your skills to practice (again, one for Year 1 which can be found here and one for Year 2 which can be found here).

Maths Fluency – YEAR 2 ONLY

For your fluency today, you are going to complete a mixture of 8 addition and subtraction questions which can be found here When you have finished, look at the answers and mark your work with your green pen.
