Hello everyone!

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s activities.  

  • PE:  Go to this website and choose ‘I like to move it’ to join Jump-start Jonny in keeping fit and having fun!  https://www.jumpstartjonny.co.uk/home
  • Look at the date…April has begun!  What month will it be in 2 months time?  Tell your adult. 
  • Log on to Education City and have a go at the activity I’ve set for you called ‘Picnic stop’.   
  • English:  Please complete the activity I’ve set for you called ‘Days of the week'.  English-1.4.20-days-of-the-week.docx  Then, in your ‘English’ book write 2 separate sentences using your choice of days – don’t forget capital letters at the start for all days of the week.  
  • Maths: Today’s Maths is called ‘Chicks and eggs’.  You can write the number sentences in your ‘Maths’ book if you want to.  Maths-1.4.20-chicks-and-eggs-10-frame.docx  Also, have a look at  ‘Number Fun’ on You Tube for an extra Maths activity today. 
  • Spellings: Keep practicing your spellings for ‘au’ and ‘ey’.  If you go to: https://thewordsearch.com/maker/ you can enter this week’s words to make a word-search, or you can make your own.  A page from your ‘Maths’ book would be good to use as there are squares for you to put the words into.
  • Reading:  Please read for 10-15 minutes today. Can you make any links with your book?  Remember our ‘link’ sign?  Your adult can also check your reading of the Common Exception Words with you from page 6 of your Reading Diary today.  Pick 2 that you can’t read, copy each one onto a Post-it note and stick it on the fridge or on your bedroom door and each time you go past it, you have to read it!
  • Comprehension:  Keep going with the comprehension for this week on ‘au phoneme spotter’.  Find 3 plurals in the letter and write them in your ‘English’ book. 
  • Computing:  Go to: https://www.terrapinlogo.com/emu/beebot.html and program the Beebot to get to: 1. The letter c.  2. The letter x.  3. The letter d.  4. The letter r.  Drag the Beebot back to the start after each letter so that it always starts from the letter k.
  • Science:  Go to:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpxnyrd/articles/zxxsyrd to learn about what plants need to grow and where plants grow best. 

 

See you again tomorrow!
