Work for Thursday 25th February 2021



For each maths lesson, there will be a video to watch first with an online activity to complete. Today, I have provided a link to the White Rose Hub site, please watch and respond to the 'Make the same amount' video before completing the worksheet. There will also be additional activities below the video link to work through as well. The activities are labelled as, 'Bronze, Silver and Gold' as they get more challenging at each level. Your child only needs to complete one activity level, although they might like to try a more challenging level as well. Please focus on the quality of your child's work, and ensure that they have set their work out neatly and fully answered each question. You can print the sheets out, if you like, but this is not necessary, as your child can work from the screen onto paper.



We are starting a new English topic, which is based around owls. Today you are going to continue with the writing task that you started yesterday. Make sure that you read through the work you did yesterday, and correct any mistakes before starting today's writing. When you think you have finished, read through your writing and check that it all makes sense. I am looking forward to seeing what you have written. 



Regularly, there will be a phonics video to watch with an activity to complete, we are revising many of the phonemes that your child will already be familiar with and looking at alternative spellings. There will be different activities depending on the spelling/phonics group that your child is in, this is the same as their spelling homework group. 



Each day, I will be adding some reading resources to the class webpage, choose the level of text that is appropriate for your child from the Gold, Silver and Bronze options. The text shouldn't take very long to read, but your child might need to read and then reread the text before answering the related questions. The answer sheets are for an adult to check the answers if your child is working independently. Please keep encouraging your child to read as often and as widely as possible in addition to the tasks set online. 



Our topic this half-term is Plants, we will be learning about plants in and around our local area. We will learn to use maps to find some of the plant life and wildlife in Wellington. Today, we are going to learn more about maps. There is a video to watch first with some useful questions to consider on the webpage. Then there are two activities to complete, one is to label a compass, the second is use use your knowledge of compass points to follow some directions and see where you end up.
