Morning!
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.

Reading

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

SUNFLOWERS

Topic – Art/design technology

Have a go at drawing or making a plant. There is a drawing video here : https://youtu.be/i_pQWFkZJrc   or have a look at the ideas below.

Welcome back to the final half term of this year. I hope you all enjoyed some sunshine and fresh air over the half term break. St James’ is open for some children from today, but I hope we can all be back in school together again very soon- as long as it’s safe! In the meantime, please stay in touch with me by sending me some pictures or messages to my email: nataliebeatson@spherefederation.org

Today’s learning……

Today, we are going to focus on jobs and money. For today’s task, complete the jobs worksheet – this will help you develop ideas that you can use later on in the week. Here are some questions to help you.

Although this task will significantly help you later in the week, it is not particularly a reading task! On top of this, I would like you to research and read about your dream job. Create a list of requirements you would need for this job, along with some reasons as to why you think people might want to do it as a career choice.

Half-term Home Learning

Posted on Sunday 24 May 2020 by Mr Catherall

Because this week is half-term, we’re taking a break from the usual daily home learning tasks (just like we did at Easter). Instead, we’ve prepared a menu of home learning activities that you might want to dip into this week – these are optional only, but you might want to encourage your child to have a go at being a quiz master, doing some up-cycling, presenting a cookery masterclass or any of the other activities.

Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have a happy and healthy half-term.

22 May 2020: Home Learning

Posted on Thursday 21 May 2020 by Miss Beatson

It’s the end of the week and I hope you’ve all had a good one. I’ve been into Scholes (Elmet) Primary School again this week and I’ve been very busy organising the re-opening of St James’ for some children. What have you been getting up to?

Next week it’s half term holiday, so home learning will look different. You will have a menu of activities to choose from, if you wish, rather than the three tasks each day.

Today’s learning…….

Maths: 

Y5 maths: family challenge

Y6 maths: family challenge

Reading: Comparing texts

Music: be a composer
