Maths

Today in maths we are going to continue to practise the tricky skill of subtraction when you need to exchange and cross the tens barrier. Remember, if you are finding it too tricky you can practise the written method for subtraction without exchanging instead. Both resources are available below.

English

In today's lesson we will be reading lots of information books but these will be electronic books rather than paper books. See if you enjoy reading an electronic book or if you prefer paper ones. Once you have read some, and learnt how to use the buttons, you are going to think about which was your favourite and why. Don't forget you can use the audio button on some of the books to listen to the information instead.

PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education)

This half term our PSHE topic is "Good to be me". This explores how to keep ourselves safe and what our strengths/ areas for improvement are.

Today we are going to be exploring how to keep ourselves safe, in particular our bodies.

Let's look through the PowerPoint to find out what items around the house are safe to eat and use independently and which ones are not.
To view the PowerPoint in it's best form after it has been downloaded, select "slideshow" on the top tab and then select "from the beginning".

Can you try this task? Look at the picture and colour in items that are safe and unsafe to use independently in our homes.

With the help of an adult can you find a warning label on the following items (if you have them at home).

Glue stick

Santiser

Washing up liquid

Dishwasher tablets

Laundry detergent
Toys with small parts
Medicine

The warning label will usually have a symbol and writing to explain what could make the item dangerous if used incorrectly.

Spellings Activity

Today's spelling task is all about Common Exception words. These are words that are spelt in an unusual way. They are exceptions to spelling rules or words which use a particular combination of letters to represent sound patterns in an uncommon way. Please see the link below for a list of the common exception words in Key Stage One. You can choose 10 or more of these words to learn to spell.

If your child would like an extra challenge they can also try to learn to spell the names of numbers too. For example: 25 = twenty five.

P.E (Physical Education)

Today in P.E we are going to try a variety of challenges set by the APE (Association for Physical Education).

You can show your class teacher your amazing skills using class dojo (messages or portfolio).

Lesson 4: Rock and roll gymnastics

Lesson 5: Balloon blasting

Lesson 6: Jumping in combination
