Here are your home learning tasks for today.
8:50am- Live Registration
Remember to tune in to take part in our live registration. Mrs Pring will be there to welcome you, take the register and talk you through today’s learning. If you have any questions or do not understand something about today’s learning, please ask. This is a great opportunity for us to share ideas and ask questions.
9:00am- Live English Lesson
This morning, we will talking about how to write an exciting character description. Mrs Pring will read part of the story ‘Supertato’ and we will think about some of the words we can use to describe him.
Activity: Write a character description for Supertato. A template is attached to this blog.
Remember to use some exciting adjectives (describing words) and to vary the way you start your sentences. When you have completed your character description, please send them in to us so we can share them with the rest of the class.
If you are not able to attend the Live session then you can watch a version of the story using this link: Supertato - Books Alive! Read Aloud book for kids - YouTube. If you email the class email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) we can send you details of what we cover.
Remember to read for at least 20 minutes at home today. This can be any type of text – fiction book, non-fiction, comic, newspaper, etc. A reading comprehension called ‘A Trip to The Zoo’ has been included with this blog for you to complete.
Today we are revisiting the digraph ‘ai’ sound which is in words like rain, snail and paint. Below are some videos to watch going through some ‘ai’ sound words.

Talk about the ‘ai’ sound. Can you say the sound? Can you write the sound? Look at the activity sheet attached to this blog. Fill in the missing ‘ai’ sound for each word. Try reading each word. Can you write a sentence with one of the ‘ai’ words in?
Our focus today is counting in 2s. Watch the learning video below:

Now use the number grid attached to this blog and colour in the numbers counting up in 2s. There is another worksheet attached to the blog if you want some more practise counting in 2s.
Number Game: Nim-7
Here’s a game to play with an adult! This is a basic form of the ancient game of Nim.
How do you play?
You'll need an adult to play with.
You will also need seven objects, such as counters or blocks.
Place the 7 counters in a pile and starting with the adult, take turns to take away either one or two counters.
The person who takes the last counter wins.
Swap who goes first, and keep playing until you work out a winning strategy.
Does it matter who has the first turn?
What happens when there are three counters left?
How can you win at this game?
What happens when you start the game with more counters?
To start this term we are learning about Humanism. The key questions for this week are: ‘What is Humanism?’ and ‘What do humanists believe makes us special?’
Work through the RE Home Learning Pack attached to this blog. Today you will read about Jayden and his family who are humanists. Complete each of the activities and don’t forget to send us pictures of your work.
