Thursday 21st January

Here is today's home learning.


While learning from home, you should be aiming for at least 20 minutes reading per day. This can be any type of text – fiction book, non-fiction, comic, newspaper, etc. A reading comprehension Bella the dog has been included with this blog for you to complete if you wish.


Today we are learning about the ‘au’ in words like launch, haunt and August. Below are some videos to watch going through some ‘au’ sound words.

Talk about the ‘au’ sound. Can you say the sound?  Can you write the sound? Now look at the ‘au’ sheet attached to this blog. Can you read the words and say whether they are real or nonsense words?


Today we would like you to write a non-chronological report about amphibians. As you learnt yesterday, non-chronological reports give people information and facts about things.

There are two video clips for you to watch and there is also some information about amphibians attached to this blog. Alternatively, you can do your own research.

Write a fact file about amphibians. What are the main features of all amphibians?  What is the skin like? Are they warm blooded or cold blooded? What interesting facts did you find out about amphibians? Write down what you have learnt. You can use the attached template or write in your home learning book. Remember to include a title, an introduction, information in sections, subheadings and pictures.


Today we are continuing to learn about subtracting not crossing 10. Watch the White Rose Maths Spr1.4.4 - Compare number sentences on Vimeo  and then try completing the worksheet attached to this blog.
