27 April 2020 : Home learning

Sunday 26 April 2020

Week four of our home learning tasks already! We hope you are still enjoying the activities we are suggesting. Remember, there are lots of other ways to learn too. You could be cooking, exercising, garden, playing board games or talking to family or friends using digital devices.

Try to keep reading 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.

There is new content on BBC Bitesize, with three lessons each day: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize and Oak National Academy (ONA), also with three lessons each day: https://www.thenational.academy/  There’s also White Rose: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ if you are wanting more. We will be linking some of these lessons in activities we set too.

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 : queen quiz chip watch ship wish that with

Y2 : plant poor pretty prove should steak sugar sure told water

Times tables : times 3 and divide 3

Challenge : How many different ways you can make 20p, 50p or £1?


Read this postcard from Miss Harker.

Challenge : Write a letter or note or postcard to someone. If you can, email or post it to the person. Or you could display a message in your window? It could be for someone from your family, a friend or maybe the local care home for someone who isn’t getting any visitors.

Topic – Geography

Our topic this half term should have been Geography driven. So, we are going to do some activities about the UK, other places, maps and directions over the next couple of weeks. There are some videos and reading to start off about the UK on BBC Bitesize : https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdq6t39

Can you remember four UK countries and their capital cities? Write them in your home learning book.
