01 June 2020 : Home learning

Sunday 31 May 2020

Our home-learning posts will be continuing but KS1 staff are in school full-time now, so the amount of teacher videos will be less.

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.

Weekly spellings :

Y1 : book look moon fool car start sort torch

Y2 : table apple bottle little middle fiddle beetle wobble muddle ankle

Times tables : If you ready, start learning x6 (link to x3) OR keep going with times 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 and divide 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10

Maths – addition

Watch the video about adding three single digit numbers : https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cYht6Rpb0V

Challenge : Make/get a set of number cards 0-9 (just write numbers on scraps of paper or you could use playing cards). Turn them over so you can’t see the numbers. Choose 3 cards. Add them together. You could draw part whole models, a number line or bar models to help, if you need. Remember that addition is commutative (can be done in any order) so look for the first pair of numbers that you can add together easily to begin with.


This week we will be reading a non-fiction (information) text – all about sunflowers. Watch the video, read and discuss the features of non-fiction text : https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cYhtXtpbua
