20 April 2020 : Home learning

Monday 20 April 2020

Well, the Easter holidays are over. It may not have felt much different to the previous two weeks, but we hope you had some egg-cellent fun and enjoyed the sunshine. Here are your tasks for today. Each day we will set three main tasks.

We would also like you to read for at least twenty minutes per day – to yourself, your mum, dad, teddy or pets. It could be in two, 10 minute sessions.

Keep reading anything and everything. If you have run out of your own books to read, there is a fab online library of eBooks to read on https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/

Just register on the website, log in and choose what you want to read.

Each Monday, we will also upload a set of spellings for you to practise over the course of the week. Then on Friday, see if you can write them out without looking at them. Someone could test you if you want.

Y2s will also have a set of times table or division facts to learn too.

Weekly spellings :

Y1 : was we were where you your

Y2 : half hold hour improve kind last many mind money most

Times tables : times 10 and divide 10

You can contact your child’s teacher if you are not sure about any of the learning or want to send photos or messages about what you’re doing.
