Phonics

Again this week we would like ALL children in Maple class to take time and look at the phonics.

It is important that you can see the different way that the sounds are written and become familiar with which words fit which pattern. We have added some new words that the Maple class are less familiar with to really test their phonic knowledge and spelling.

 

Mild challenge – focus on reading then writing ‘ee’ words first then ‘ea’ words.

 

ee

ea

see

three

been

green

seen

sleep

clean

dream

seat

scream

 real

 

Medium and Hot – Parents to read the words out in the order below Maple children to write how they think the words are spelt. It may help for them to have ‘ee’ and ‘ea’ in front of them .

 

Remember to talk about what they feel ‘looks’ right.

 

‘ee’ and ‘ea’ words

read

easy

beef

neat

dream

three

teach

reason

peanut

seem

three

 

 

Spellings

Everyone focus on Phonics and word patterns this week please.

 

English

Just want to say another ‘Well done’ to all the children that worked so hard on building their traditional story writing skills in the last unit we worked on together. The stories were brilliant. Moving forward this half term we are going to be focusing on general writing, grammar and punctuation skills. We will continue to the internet but in the form of games, clips and other links online also to keep the interest and excitement!

We have already worked on conjunctions so today should feel more like a recap!

 

 

Today go to bbc daily lessons. There are some fun clips to watch and tasks you may want to have a go at.

Then have a go at writing some of your own sentences using - 

and, so, if, when, because.

For example...

I did the gardening with gloves on so that my hands didn't get grubby with the soil.

We went to bed early because we were tired from playing all day.

 

 

Then have a go at Karate cats. It’s lots of fun.

Maths

Warm up

Count in 2s, 5s, 10s or 3s. If you’re really confident at that, practise your times tables. Look at the times tables section to see ways you can practise!

Today is all about partitioning numbers into 10s and 1s. This can be done with 10p and 1p coins, pasta in cups or cupcake cases (10 pieces makes a ten) or with ten sticks online. There are lots of ideas, video clips and resources on the BBC page. Or simply watch the video and have a go at our Maple challenge.

Maple Challenge

Partition these numbers into 10s and ones (or 100s, 10s and 1s)

Mild

Medium

Spicy

34 = 30 + 4

Can you pick a 2 digit number and partition it in different ways, like this:

34 = 30 + 4

34 = 20 + 14

34 = 10 + 24

Have a go at the medium challenge first.

 

Now, roll a dice 3 times to make a 3 digit number. How can you partition it?

 

E.g. 345 = 300 + 40 + 5

 

EXTRA SPICY EEEEK!

Can you partition it in different ways?

 

345 = 300 + 30 + 15

25 = __ + __

45 = 40 + __

45 = 30 + __

45 = __ + 25

45 = 10 + __

42 = __ + __

52 = __ + __

 

36 = __ + __

63 = __ + 3
