Welcome back Platypus class.
I hope you all made a good start to your home learning routine yesterday. It is not easy but remember to try and make a timetable for each day with what you plan to do and when. About two hours of focused learning spread out over the day is what I would recommend and plenty of creative and fun activities in-between!
Remember your daily tasks of Zumos, Phonics Play, Reading and Sumdog each day. Oh and keep practicing those spelling for the quiz on Thursday…
For obvious reasons we are all spending more time online at the moment. Platypus class duty bearers please use the link attached to find some great age appropriate home learning resources to teach the children about how to stay safe online https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Support-tools/home-activity-worksheets/?utm_source=Thinkuknow&utm_campaign=46e6250b3e-TUK_ONLINE_SAFETY_AT_HOME_07_04_20&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_0b54505554-46e6250b3e-55345345
Maths Home Learning
Today’s Maths lesson is on the home learning section of the White Rose website. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
Summer Term – Week 1 Lesson 2 is looking at making equal groups.
Try and record the answer to the questions on the activity sheet in your blue book. It it a good idea to use some real objects to try grouping too. For example, can you find some real socks to do the first question with?
English Home Learning
Yesterday’s lesson was all about different ‘genres’ of story. How many different types of styles of story did you think of? Thank you to all of you who shared your favourite stories as well.
Today lesson is on the bitesize website and it is all about using describing words: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zd372sg
There is also some great imaginative writing for you to do inspired by the story of the ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’. I’d love to hear about some of your ideas.
Topic Home Learning
This term our history topic will focus on castles.
Use these slides to find out about the people who built the first castles in England.
Now think about what question you would like to Harold of Wessex and William the Conquerer.
