Home Learning for any children at home this week who are able to work.
Week beginning 7.12.20
Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions – thank you.
We are spending time this week learning how to read and spell some different tricky words.
These are some of the tricky words we will be focusing on:
Are there any others that you always forget to spell? Try the activities using those specific words!
- Play bingo with some of these words with people at home!
- Write the words large, small, in different colours, in bubble letters etc.
- Focus on a word, put each letter of that word onto a post-it or small piece of paper, jumble up the post-its – can you re-order the letters?
- Can you come up with a mnemonic to help you remember certain spellings? E.g. when > witches have evil noses
Big Write: What are you looking forward to about Christmas? Do you have your decorations up yet? Have you seen any Christmas lights near where you live?
English tasks: This week we are going to be reading and enjoying other fairytale stories. We will be looking at Rapunzel by Bethan Woollvin amongst others.
Try these tasks:
- Rapunzel by Bethan Woolvin – YouTube What did you notice about this story?
- Can you make a Sock Puppet story? You can use this app to help! Sock Puppets Complete on the App Store (apple.com)
- Find some fairytales you haven’t read or heard of before. Who wrote them? Have you discovered a new favourite?
In school we will be watching this CBeebies production of Hansel and Gretel: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000c74q/cbeebies-presents-stage-shows-hansel-and-gretel
We will be focusing on money this week. Watch these videos in this order to learn more about money:
- UK Coins Explained for Kids – Maths Money Learning Video – YouTube (Year 2 this should be a useful recap)
- KS1 Maths: Recognising and Counting UK Coins – YouTube (You may wish to pause the video to give time to work out the answer, the number of coins to add does get quite challenging!)
Year 1 can complete these activities:
- Have a hunt around the house for any coins! Look at them closely, can you make a coin rubbing using a wax crayon with the coin underneath the paper for each coin you find?
- Can you order the coins in value, from smallest to largest? You could use this sheet from Twinkl to help you: t2-m-2290-coin-ordering-cut-and-paste-activity-sheet_ver_6.pdf (twinkl.co.uk)
- How many different ways can you combine different coins to total 10p? Draw the coins for each combination. You could try doing this for 20p or even 50p!
Year 2 can complete these activities:
- Y2 – Counting pence (WRM)
- Counting mixed coins t-n-5385-counting-mixed-coins-worksheets-_ver_6.pdf (twinkl.co.uk)
- Count money – pounds Count money – Pounds
- Select money Select money Y2
