Good morning Willow class, 

Today's home learning you could do some work on fractions. You have some activities in your pack, however Year 1 you could find 1/2 or 1/4 of amounts practically using objects in your home i.e. toys, teddies etc. Remember 2 equal groups when finding 1/2, 4 equal groups to find 1/4..

Year 2 we looked at 1/3 last week see if you can find 1/3 of an amount, remember you need 3 equal groups, again you could do this practically or you could draw it i.e. draw 27 spots split them into 3 equal groups.

Make sure you read something today a home book or your school book. You could discuss the book whilst reading with an adult or older sibling- predicting what might happen, discussing any words you are unsure of etc.

Phonics play is currently offering free access. This is an excellent resource many games and activities to practise recognsing sounds, reading and spelling. Most recently we have investigated the ear sound (phase 5). Year 2 the phase 6 has a link to spelling play lots of great resources linked to spelling patterens.

 

Stay safe

Hi Willow class,

Today why don't you try choosing 5 common exception words (see below for lists there is a year 1 list and a year 2 list) and putting them into a sentence. Also try and find a way to help you remember how to spell the word- break the word up. Year 1 children you could practice your number writing. Year 2 you can practice 2,5 and 10 x tables. You could begin making a Easter/spring garden (instructions are below). You can use a paper plate or a metal tray as a base, it does not need to be a flower pot. Try to redd something today, this might be part of a home book or school book.

Keep safe

Miss Smith
