Tuesday 12th January    


Good morning everybody! Today we are going to be looking at some maths games as a warm up, before beginning our planned work. Year 1 will continue their work on adding by counting on. Year 2 will be looking at making doubles. There is a separate sheet for each year group.

Our reading task will be looking at exploring the similarities and differences in two books by the same author. The work for both year groups is on one sheet, but the questions are worded slightly differently.

In topic today we will be looking at speech bubbles and how they are used, with a template showing empty speech bubbles for the children to complete. Also linking with topic is a music task, as we would normally have a music lesson on Tuesday.

Phonics will look at the ‘tch’ sound, with different work for Year 1 and Year 2. In our Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS) we will be looking at how to change words from singular into plurals.

As it is our P.E day, there are also a range of P.E activities available.

I hope you all have a great day, and I will try to respond to emails as quickly as I can.

Have fun everyone!

Think about some of the different instruments in an orchestra, which would you like to play and why? You might already be learning to play an instrument, which one do you play?

Using things in your home, see if you can make some superhero sound.  Think about the onomatopoeia work we did last week, can you make any of those sounds. (Don’t break anything, and stop when your parents tell you to!)
