Today's learning

Monday 15th June 2020























Academic Time – English



Phonics: You can either use the link to the online daily phonics lesson or practise the following sound. Can you write a sentence using these words?

Set 2 – ou out, loud, shout, about, found

Set 3 – ow brown, cowl, vow, howl, owl


Remember, you can practice longer words on the YouTube channel if you are feeling more confident with your phonics sounds.


Spellings: Practise these tricky words and test yourself on Friday. Can you put them in sentences, to make sure you know what they mean? The tricky words to practise this week are:

  • here
  • love
  • some
  • come
  • once


Writing Activity: This week we will finish our brochures about your local area. First, read what you have written already, so you know where you got up to. Then read any notes that you have written or collected.


Now you are ready to write Chapter 4. Write the title, as a question if you want to. You should aim to write AT LEAST three sentences. Remember to write in full sentences.

  • Say the whole sentence out loud.
  • Count how many words on your fingers. If you run out of fingers, then your sentence might be too long.
  • Try to keep your writing neat and on the line. Check your letters are the right way around.
  • Start the first word with a capital letter.
  • Remember to use finger spaces in between each word.
  • Write all of the words in your sentence. Use your fingers to check you haven’t missed any words out.
  • Use your phonics knowledge to sound out each word.
  • Punctuation mark at the end. You might need a question mark ? or exclamation mark ! instead of a full stop.
  • Read your whole sentence. Does it make sense? Have you used any interesting words? Is it the best it can be?
  • Now move onto your next sentence.
  • When you’ve written all your sentences, read the whole chapter, to make sure it makes sense and that it is the best it can be.
  • Get an adult to check your writing and make any changes that you need Get an adult to check your writing and make any changes that you need to.

When you have finished your writing, you can draw a picture or diagram to go with your writing. Remember to label the picture, so we know what it is.


Reading: Choose an ebook from Bug Club or Oxford Owl. One I’ve found on Bug Club is called “Shaun the sheep: You are my mum!” Who doesn’t like Shaun the sheep?


Extra: If you want any extra activities or ideas, either choose an activity from your English Activity Book or check out the daily online lessons on BBC Bitesize or Oak Academy.







Academic Time – Learning Theme





Maps Monday


Take you teddy or doll for another walk in your local area, or imagine a walk from your home to a nearby place that you know well, such as a shop, park or friend’s house. Imagine you had to tell someone who didn’t know your local area how to get from your home to the place that you went to or thought of. Draw them a map of how to get there. You will need to include features like the roads and any important buildings. Show them on the map which way they need to go, turn right or left, cross over the road. It might be a good idea to add any hazards on the journey, so they know to take care, such as if there is a busy road. I’d love to see what you create.


All areas have good and not so good features. You could make two lists in your Home Learning book, one of features of your local area that you like and one of features that you don’t like. For example, you might like living near a park, but don’t like the busy road that you have to cross to get there. Perhaps you could even come up with some ways of making those bad features better, like putting a crossing on the busy road.


Survey: This week we are going to do a survey across all of Year 1 and Year 2, to see what kinds of homes people live in. Email me to let me know what your home is like. Do you live in a house, bungalow, cottage or flat? Or is it something else? We will collect all the answers and let you know the types of homes we all live in. It will be interesting to see the different kinds of home and which is the most popular.


Me? I live in what is called a chalet bungalow. It used to be a bungalow, but then we added an upstairs.

Father’s Day

Sunday 21st is Father’s Day, so we’ve put a few ideas for cards in our resources for this week, in case you want to make your dad or grown up a card. There is also a recipe for Father’s Day biscuits. Of course, this doesn’t have to be just for dads, it could be for any man or older boy who is special to you. You might want to make something for step-dad, grandad, uncle or big brother. It’s a good opportunity to tell a man or older boy in your life that you think they are special. Have fun!

Academic Time - Maths


Warm up – Wake up your maths brains with some counting! Choose from the videos below or practice counting in 2s, 5s or 10s – we will be practicing lots of counting this week!


Activity – today we are going to be looking at calculating groups of objects, in other words, multiplication.


We will be starting by looking at arrays. This is when objects are arranged in columns and rows, so that we can quickly calculate how many objects are altogether. On our class page I have put some arrays made out of apples and some questions for you to answer. There is no need to print these off, you can write the answers in your exercise books. If you have anything at home like counters, or you could make paper circles, it may help to physically make the arrays. Remember you can you use your great counting, like in 5s 2s of 10s to help you work out how many apples are altogether.
