Here are today’s learning activities:
Reading – Please complete one of the following reading tasks from your home learning pack. You can chose the poem, the story or the non-fiction piece. Can you answer the questions about the text you have just read.
Writing – Can you choose a member of your family and write a character description about them? You should include adjectives to describe what the person looks like, share what kind of person they are ( happy, cheerful, grumpy, funny) and why they are like this and tell us some things that this character likes to do. Remember to use punctuation, finger spaces and to use full sentences. Take care with your spellings especially any year 2 words.
Basic Skills: Can you copy and complete the Multiplication grid?
Challenge: What do you notice? Are there any patterns? What are the yellow boxes for?
Review all previously learnt sounds and read the following words – great, behind, half, sure, who Introduce the new spelling pattern: sion (this is four letters that join together to make the spelling pronounced ‘shun’)
Read the words: vision, division, discussion
Write the words: supervision, television, conversion, permission
Dictation: Get somebody to read the sentence out loud so that you can have a go at writing it.
The boy turned on the television under supervision. He had to have a discussion to ask for permission.
How would you solve these subtraction problems? Remember to draw the resources that you would use. You can do them in any order so start where you think is easiest. Challenge yourself to have a go at them all.
Warm up: Wiggle your fingers up high, down low, to the side and in front of you.
Stretch your fingers out like fireworks seven times.
Can you write the following Year 2 words joined up? You should write each word three times and remember to leave a finger space between each one..

Can you get into your garden and build a natural picture using things you can find? If you can’t get outside you could draw a picture and label the things you could use to make it. Here are some examples to help you out.

Can you read a story to somebody different? Maybe you could face time your grandparents or a relative and read them a story? Maybe you could record yourself on a video message to send to somebody else? Maybe you could read a story over the phone to somebody else? We know that teddies and pets love to listen to stories so you could always read to them.
