Spellings - days of the week. Please make sure your child is capitalising the days of the week as they are proper nouns (names).
As we are starting a new adventure, we will have a whole new writing topic! Please make sure your child has listened to the story 'The Day the Crayons Quit' as this is going to be the basis of our writing this term.
Have a listen to what the red crayon had to say below - he is FED UP and has decided to quit and go on a well-deserved holiday. The red crayon is crucial and we desperately need him back as we can't colour without him. Today we are going to be writing a letter to red crayon begging him to return.
Our grammar focus for the letter writing is question marks (?) - I would like you to include a minimum of 1 question mark in your writing e.g. Please can you come home? Are you not missing us?
A question mark replaces a full stop at the end of a question, have a practice of forming a question mark. Don't forget, you must use a capital letter after the question mark!
Make sure you include:
To and From,
Why we want red crayon to come home
The reasons for why we want red crayon to come home
A question for red crayon
We are going to pause working from the Maths No Problem workbook as there is a few skills I want the children to recap.
Today we are going to be looking at place value - tens and ones.
It is important the children recognise what a 2-digit number is e.g. 34 is 30 and 4, 3 tens and 4 ones. This can be represented using a part-part whole model or dienes (base 10) - 1 dienes stick = 10, 1 dienes cube = 1.
I would love the children to think about special people in their lives. It is important the children are able to identify what the qualities of a special person are (someone who is kind, caring, positive, thoughtful etc) and how we can identify a special person.
The activity I would like the children to do is draw/paint a picture of their favourite person who is special to them - this could be a family member/friend/religious figure etc. Then, they could write a small sentence about why that person is special to them, what do they do for you?
