This week's spellings:
Please practice your spellings at home.
I will be delivering a live phonics lesson at 10.30 for all children to attend. Please have a pen and paper ready for the spelling part of the session.
Please also complete the extra phonics lesson below - in class we usually do 2 lessons of phonics a day so it would be great if an extra could be done at home.
Whilst exploring the Island, we came across a dark woodland. Inside was a huge tree named the 'whomping willow'. Inside of the trunk was a hidden clue to help us find the treasure chest that went missing. As we went to take the clue, a gigantic twisted branch came flying through the air. It nearly knocked us off our feet.
How are we meant to reach the clue?
In your writing, I would like you to write a setting description of the whomping willow scene. Begin by thinking about the senses: what you can see, what you can hear, what can you feel.
I can see a thick twisted trunk.
I can smell fear in the air.
The sky is stormy and dark.
Once you have thought about the different sense, have a go at putting this into writing using different sentence openers:
In the Whomping woods ____
There is ____
Next to the ___
Behind the ____
The sky looks ____
Make sure you use your fred fingers to help you spell, use 'and' to extend your sentences and adjectives to add detail.
Maths - 9am live lesson
Today's lesson is focussed on partitioning two digit numbers into tens and ones. For example, 47 can be broke down into 4 tens and 7 ones.
It is important the children understand that only 1 digit can go in the tens column and 1 digit in the ones column.
In their workbooks, the children are finding the tens and ones using 'dienes'. In 1 rod/stick of dienes there is ten cubes.
1 stick = 10
1 cube = 1
