Monday 8th February
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 ‘n’ and your variations are n/nn/kn and gn. 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 7 tables. Remember…if you know your 7 times tables, then dividing is easy.
Literacy – Spelling adverbs
This week, we’re going to look at another part of speech which can be used in sentences.
We’re going to think about adverbs. Adverbs tell us how, when or where something happens and we can think of them as ‘adding more information to the verb’.
A lot of adverbs in sentences end in –ly, e.g. quickly, slowly, carefully, however we do have some adverbs which don’t end in –ly, e.g. never, yesterday or soon.
Today we’re going to focus on the –ly adverbs and the different spelling rules, so focus carefully on your spelling today please. Watch the two videos below which will help you with the spelling rules.
You could maybe play the following game to help too and choose single player.
Numeracy – Using RUCSAC for multiplication
We have spent some time over the last few weeks learning how to multiply numbers using the formal written method of multiplication and grid multiplication.
You probably have a preferred method. For me, I prefer the method we looked at last week, as I think it’s quicker than having to draw out a grid, but it’s up to you what method you use today.
Today, I’d like you to practise more multiplying and to think about word problems which ask you to multiply. These can be tricky, as there won’t often be maths phrases or words in the problem that tell you you are multiplying and we often get them confused with adding.
The easiest way to do these is to picture them in your head, however you know today that they all ask you to multiply. Use RUCSAC as your complete the second half of your work today and don’t forget your final answer will need a label, e.g. what are you talking about in the question, tables/chairs/dogs etc.
Check SEESAW for a modelled example of using RUCSAC for multiplication before trying your work for today.
Remember the most important part of RUCSAC is the final C for CHECK. Check over your work before sending to me on SEESAW today. J
P.E. – BBC Winter Sports Programme 3
I have moved P.E. to today, as I have something else for you to look at tomorrow.
Today we’re continuing our BBC radio programme on Winter Sports and this is the last one in the programme. Today’s programme focuses on a mixture of Winter Sports with the first focus on an ice game called Curling and then a revision of programmes 1 and 2.
For curling you’ll do some slow-motion moves for launching a curling stone, sweeping the ice with brooms and then revise all the elements of snowboarding, slalom skiing, figure skating and bob-sleighing. Have some fun being active and doing some exercise!
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
