Good morning Platypuses,
It has been so great to hear from some of you and your families through the blog. Do keep commenting and sharing some of your learning as we go along. It is really important for us to all feel connected as much as possible – plus I just love to hear how you are all doing!
In phonics we have been focusing on the i-e split digraph sound as in hike or mine
Remember that you can login to phonics play for free now to practise your phonics.
In your blue book see if you can copy and complete these sentences by adding words that have the i-e split digraph.
Also if you like try to write down or draw what happens at the end of your version of the “Giraffes can’t dance” story.
Here is my ending…
Matty Mouse was sad. He did not think he could be strong like the other animals. But then he heard a clucking sound. It was the hen and she had been watching him. She told him that we are all strong if we work together. Matty mouse thought for a moment and then went back to the other animals. They watched as Matty went over to a big bag of grain. Then he squeaked as loud as he could. All of a sudden hundreds of mice came running out of the barn. Together they lifted the bag of grain right off the ground. The other animals were amazed!
Yesterday we looked at completing part whole diagrams using our knowledge of the groups of tens and the ones in 2 digit numbers.
Today I want you to try and write 2 addition and 2 subtraction equations for a part whole model like the example below..
Write your addition and subtraction equations for these part whole models. (Some of them you will have to complete first!)
As we are all stuck at home at the moment adults and children are likely to be spending a little more time online.
The internet can be a great place for learning and entertainment but as we have often discussed in class it is very important to stay safe when you are online.
Please do the following e-safety activity and try to comment on the blog with one thing you must do or never do to stay safe online…http://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/jessie-and-friends-videos/
Good Luck Platypus Class!
