Daily Challenge - Continue the pattern.

Thinking Curriculum - PSHE

Last week, we explored the concept of pocket money. You thought of some things that you could do to possibly earn pocket money at home. This week, we are exploring the difference between wanting something and needing something. Split your page in half - write 'Wants' on one side and 'Needs' on the other. Sort the things below into the correct columns based on whether you think it is something you want or something you need. 

Maths

Today, we will be learning how to subtract a two digit number from another two-digit number using dienes. Use the example below to solve the subtractions underneath. If you do not have dienes at home, you can practise subtraction by drawing the dienes for each subtraction.

Phonics

Phase 2 - Today our sound is /m/ as in map. Look at the pictures below. What can you see? Write the words that you think match the pictures using the /m/ sound.

Phase 3 - Today's sound is /zz/. Read the words below and copy them. Can you add the sound buttons underneath each word? Write a sentence using three of these words.

Phase 5a - Today's sound is the split u_e digraph as in huge. Search for the u_e words in the story below. Write them down. Add the sound buttons and see if you can use any of them in a sentence.

Phase 5b - The letter /i/ can be pronounced in two different ways depending on the word it is in. For example, in the word 'bin', it is pronounced as normal. But in the word 'child', it is pronounced as /igh/. Split your page in two. Write i on one side and igh on the other. Organise the words below into the correct column based on the way pronounce the letter /i/. 

Phase 6 - This week, our focus has been singular nouns vs plural nouns. You now know that we either add the suffixes -s or -es to the of singular nouns to make them plural. Remember, you only need to add -es if the noun ends with x, z, s, ch or sh. Otherwise, you just need to add -s. Use this spelling rule to complete the activit below.

If the answer is ten, what was the question? How many questions can you come up with?

PSHE 

Today we will be learning about the concept of pocket money. Some children earn pocket money by doing chores / jobs around their home and they sometimes save it up to buy nice things that they really want.

Discuss the questions below with an adult:

  • How do we get money? How do other people get money?
  • Why might people save money?
  • How can having or not having money make us feel?
  • What can we do to keep our money safe?
  • Who decides what we can spend our money?
  • What helps us choose how to spend money?

Here are some examples of jobs you could do at home. Choose three to add into the page below. Do you think you should be paid to do these jobs? Why/why not? How much should you be paid if you think you should be paid?

Maths

Yesterday, we learnt to add three 1-digit numbers together by looking for the number bonds to make ten first. Sometimes, we will not be able to do this, such as in the example below.

9 + 4 + 3 =

Here, there is no number bond to ten. A different strategy that we can use to find the answer is rounding the 9 up to ten, like this:

10 + 4 + 3 =

This makes the calculation easier since it is easier to add to ten than it is to add to nine. Because we have added 1 to the 9 to make 10 though, we need to remember to take that one away from our final answer:

10 + 4 + 3 = 17    ->   17 - 1 = 16     so      9 + 4 + 3 = 16

Practise this strategy for the sums below.

 

Phonics

Phase 2 - Today's sound is / t /. Copy the words below and add sound buttons. Use your robot arms to read each word. Can you think of a sentence using one of the words below? Say it to an adult and write it down. Remember to use a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop! 

tap

tip

till

top

pot

bat

Phase 3 - Today's sound is / w /. Unscramble the letters on the sheet below to make a word to match each picture. Can you use one of them in a sentence? Say it to an adult and write it down. Remember to use a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop!

Phase 5a - Today's sound is the split digraph a-e as in 'cake', 'bake' and 'whale'.

Phase 5b - Today we will be exploring the alternative pronunciations for the digraph / ch /. For example, the way that we say these letters sounds different in each of these words: chef, children and ache. Organise the words below into groups based on the pronunciation of / ch /.

Phase 6 - We will be continuing with our work on the past and present tense today. Below are some examples of where I have changes the tense of some sentences. Can you work out which sentences were written in past / present? How do you know? Discuss this with an adult and then have a go at the worksheet.

Why are My Tears so Salty?

By Celia Warren

Why are my tears so salty?
  You must have swallowed the sea.

Why are my legs so heavy?
   To stop you floating free.

Why do I feel as empty
   as a shell that’s prised apart?
Because, when you left the sandy shore,
   you left a bit of your heart.

Tell the poet what you enjoyed most about being there and what you will miss the most.

Star of The Week!


Poetry- Pirate Pete by James Carter

Read the poem below and then answer the questions.

Pirate Pete
Had a ship on the sea
Had fish for his tea
Had a peg for his knee
And a tiny little parrot called ... Polly

Pirate Pete
Had a book with a map
Had a skull on his cap
Had a cat on his lap
And another little parrot called ... Dolly

Pirate Pete
Had a trunk full of treasure
Had a belt made of leather
Had a cap with a feather
And another little parrot called ... Jolly

Pirate Pete
Had a patch on his eye
Had a flag he would fly
Had a plank way up high
And another little parrot called ... Molly

So pirate Pete
And the parrots four
They sailed the world
From shore to shore –
Collecting gold
And gifts galore.
And that’s their tale –
And there is no more.

Now answer these questions:

What do you know about pirates?

Pirate Pete had a peg for his knee. What is a peg?

What was your favourite part of the poem? Why?

Draw what you think Pirate Pete looks like. You can do this using the picture, or you can draw him on JIT5.

Measure- capacity

What can you remember about capacity?

How many mililitres (ml) are in a litre (l)?

Water, water everywhere!

Grab some containers of different sizes (egg cups, beakers, plastic storage boxes, pots and pans), get some water (in the sink, the bath, or a bucket outside), and compare capacities by filling and pouring from one to another.

Can you use language such as full, empty, contains more/less than?

Can you compare the containers and see which ones have less and which ones have more?

Ensure you check the capacities by pouring and don’t think that taller, thinner containers always hold more than shorter, wider ones. 

Were there any surprises? 

Now find containers that have the litres marked on them. Pour some water into the containers and read how many litres are in each container.

Can you order them from largest to smallest?
