This week in maths we will continue to learn about the numbers to 10. There are a range of optional worksheets that support the learning each day below.

Have a lovely week. Any questions please ask.

Our Home Learning for the Week Beginning 22.2.21 

This week we've started to learn about minibeasts. The children have had fun hunting for them outside. This week we've focused on learning about spiders and butterflies. We found out about the lifecycle of a butterfly and why some spiders make webs.

In maths we've been learning all about the numbers 9 and 10. The children have sorted different visual representations of these numbers and have ordered the numbers to 10. 

We've continued to practise our handwriting and this week we've focused on learning how to write capital letters. We've also continued to write sentences and have spelt words containing four sounds.

Another busy week! Well done everyone for all your hard work!

I hope you've all had a lovely break over the half term. It's fantastic news that we'll all be able to go back to school on the 8th March. I can't wait to see you all!

This week in maths we’re learning all about the numbers 9 and 10.  I have uploaded a few optional sheets below that reinforce some of this learning.

If you would like any phonics sheets please let me know and I'll send you these directly to ensure they're at the right level for your child.

As we're learning about minibeasts this week I've also uploaded a few extra activities. All the activities I send on Seesaw do not need a printer. The sheets below are optional extras.

Have a lovely week.

Our Home learning for the Week Beginning 8.2.21 

This week we've been learning about Chinese New Year. We've listened to a story about how the years came to be named after different animals and we've watched a video to show how people celebrate this event. We've learnt that this year is the Year of the Ox. The children have been busy making paper lanterns, fans and various different dragons.

As it's Valentine's Day on Sunday some of the children have been making some Valentine's day cards and crafts. Some have even done some baking for this special day.

We've also learnt about how to stay safe on the internet and what we should do if we see something online that we don't like or that makes us feel worried or scared. We watched a story to help us learn about this and then talked about what we should do with our parents.

In maths, we've been learning about different types of measurement. We've been learning to measure and compare length, height and time. We've also been learning about the order of the days of the week.

In phonics many of us have moved onto reading captions by reading the ditties this week. I've been so impressed with the videos I've been sent of the children reading! It's so lovely to see the progress they're making with their reading. We've also been continuing to practise writing sentences with a focus on spelling some of our tricky words and words which include special friends. As well as all this, we've continued to practise our number formation and we've also started to learn how to write capital letters correctly. I'm so pleased with how much effort you're putting into your home learning! Thank-you for all your hard work. Have a lovely well deserved rest over the half term.

Our Home Learning for the Week Beginning 1.2.21 

This week we've continued to listen to more Percy the Park Keeper stories. In one of the stories the rabbit was afraid of the dark so some of the children have made glasses to help him see at night. In another story some of the animals had a tea party so some of the children have been busy making their own sandwiches. Some even had an indoor picnic with their toys.

In maths we've been continuing to learn about the numbers 6, 7 and 8. We've also started to learn about pairs of objects and counting in twos. As well as all this, we've also started to learn about combining two groups of objects to find out how many there are altogether. The children have been busy exploring this in lots of different ways.

We've continued to practise our handwriting and this week we've been learning how to write numbers correctly. We've also learnt some new tricky words and have written some fantastic sentences. We've had a very busy week!!

Home Learning Week Beginning 1.2.21 

This week in maths we are continuing to learn about the numbers 6, 7 and 8. We will also move onto combining two groups of objects to add them together. I have uploaded some optional worksheets which will support the learning in the White Rose videos.

Monday - Matching 6, 7 and 8 (First 2 sheets)
Tuesday - Making Pairs (Next 2 sheets)
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday - Combining two groups and adding more.

All the other sheets reinforce learning about adding. The sheets get more difficult so please try one of the first sheets such as Hide-a-saurus addition or Fruit salad addition as these sheets provide pictures for the children to count and add together. Some of the later sheets use numbers instead of pictures so these are more difficult. If your child would like to do them but finds them a bit tricky you could give them some objects to use to represent the numbers as this will help them as they'll be able to count how many objects they have altogether. If you would like any help with anything please send me a message on Seesaw.

I'm happy to send you some phonics sheets if you would like them. I've decided that it will be easier if I send you these directly as it will ensure you have ones that are at the right level for your child. If you would like some please send me a message.

Have a lovely week.

Our Home Learning for the Week Beginning 25.1.21 

This week, in maths, we have moved onto learning about the composition of the numbers 6, 7 and 8. The children have been busy investigating the different ways in which these numbers can be made.

We have continued to practise our reading and spelling in phonics. We've also practised our handwriting everyday and I'm really impressed with the effort the children are putting into improving this.

We have moved onto learning about woodland animals in our topic this week. The children have enjoyed listening to some of the Percy the Park Keeper stories and have completed some related activities.

You can see below that one of the children made some bread roll hedgehogs. Another child made a brilliant pinwheel to spin around in the wind. They've also been learning some facts about some of the woodland animals. You can see below that one of the children found out about what foxes eat and where they live. She then made a foxes den to play in. After listening to a story about hedgehogs some of the children made hedgehogs using playdough. I love how they've made them really spiky!

Our Home Learning for the Week Beginning 18.1.21 

This week the children have been continuing to practise their handwriting, reading and spelling. There are some great games being played to practise reading the tricky words. One of them involved slapping the word with a pen before his mum and sister did! Great fun! One of the children decided to write cards to some of the elderly people she knows as she was worried they might be lonely. How lovely and thoughtful and a great real life purpose for practising her handwriting.

In maths this week we've been learning to compare objects and say which is the heaviest and which is the lightest. The children have been using their arms as scales! They've also been learning about capacity and have enjoyed playing with water, rice and flour to investigate which container holds the most and least.

We've continued our learning about winter this week and have also moved onto learning about some of the animals that live in the Arctic and Antarctica. You can see some of the children have created pictures of some of these animals. They've also been busy baking to make biscuits or cakes on a winter theme. They look delicious!
