Monday 25th January
Morning Check in on Seesaw – this will be going live at 9 a.m., but don’t panic, you have all day to respond. Don’t forget pack pick up today is from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and we would like you to wear a mask when doing so.
Phonics – Our sound of the week is ‘t’ with variations t/tt/ed and bt. Monday’s phonics task will be your sound sort you usually complete as Tuesday night’s homework and these are your spellings for the week. Maybe while you’re waiting for your pack, you could play 10 minutes of Nessy?
Tables – Your tables this week are dividing tables and you have an information page in your pack. Today I’d like you to learn your dividing by 2 tables. Remember…if you know your 2 times tables, then dividing is easy.
Literacy – Irregular Past Tense Verbs
Last week we were looking at adding –ed to verbs to make them past tense and followed some spelling rules. This week we’re going to think about some words that change completely when we make them past tense:
E.g. go – went break –broke buy – bought etc.
There is no easy spelling rule to follow for these, but you need to do a lot of work on knowing them and building up your vocabulary to know them. Have a look at the following videos and play some of the games below before trying your work for today.
Remember: Spelling is important and your verbs MUST be accurate, so please check your spelling using a dictionary/google or ask someone at home. J
Red, Blue, Green & Yellow Groups – Please write your sentences out into your book today neatly and underline your verb. Extension worksheets can be done on the page.
Purple – Sort the verbs into present and past tense.
Games you can play:
Numeracy – Grid Multiplying HTU x U
Today and tomorrow, you’re going to be doing more grid multiplying similar to the work we did last week. I noticed that in our Friday Assessment, some people weren’t adding their two new numbers together to get their final answer, so make sure you do that. J
As the numbers are a little bigger this week, you may have to do a vertical addition calculation to ensure you’re adding correctly. I will be posting a little explanation video on SEESAW today and if you still need further help, please let me know and I’ll try my best.
You will need to know your tables really well. You can use the other side of the laminated multiplication grid in your pack from last week which you can use a whiteboard pen on and use over and over again to do more practice. The PowerPoint below will take you through practising this new method and I’d like you to use your grid and practise like we would normally do in class before doing the work. J
You could also play this Kahoot to practise your tables before trying your grid multiplying today! I will send a reward sticker to the first 3 students on SEESAW. You can play up until 12 noon tomorrow and remember only play once and use your real name as your nickname.
Now that you’ve had a little practice doing this, why don’t you give your worksheet a little go for today. Remember to send it through to me on SEESAW for marking and when adding your two answers together, if you need to do vertical addition calculation, that’s OK!
I.C.T. – Hour of Code
If you have some time this week that you can spend on a tablet/computer, I’d like you to try your hand at some coding. We completed Dance Party together in class and tried, but failed, due to poor internet connections to have a go at Minecraft: Hour of Code. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities. Type in the link below (or it’s on our page of the website where you can just click on it) to be taken to the website and try one of the activities. I would like you to try one of the following activities please below….you can choose which one! J
Well done for completing Monday’s activities. Rest up for another day of fun activities tomorrow and maybe do some reading if you can to finish your afternoon! J
