11 May 2020 : Home learning

Sunday 10 May 2020

Week six of our home learning tasks! Well done if you have done some home learning, even if it is not everything. We hope you are still enjoying the videos from teachers. It is strange not having anyone answering us but we know you like seeing your teachers talking about the learning. As time goes on, some of you may be struggling to keep up with all the tasks. Don’t worry, any learning that is missed we will catch up on once we get back to school. The most important thing at the moment is to stay safe and look after your emotional well-being. If you need any help or support, please email your class teacher.

Try to keep reading for at least twenty minutes per day. 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/

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 times table or division facts to learn too.

Weekly spellings :

Y1 : soon food look book card dark fork short

Y2 : change badge edge race ice city knock know knee knit

Times tables : If you ready, start learning ÷4 (half and half again, link to ÷2) OR keep going with times 2, 3, 5 or 10 and divide 2, 3, 5 or 10


More fractions learning this week. We are focusing on quarters. Watch the slideshow by Miss Harker all about quarters : https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cYh1Xdghs7
