Please aim for 30 minutes (15 each) of handwriting and phonics and continue reading each day.
This week we are learning more about adding plural markers
-s and -es to nouns. Remember nouns are people, places, things, animals or ideas.
Plural means more than one.
For today's task sort the singular nouns into the correct plurals box.
Challenge: Can you use the plural marker -ies? We use this when a singular noun ends in y - drop the y and add -ies. Give it a try!
English: Listen to an online reading of the story Super Daisy and the Peril of Planet Pea by Kes Gray and Nick Sharratt. Change verbs into the past tense by adding an -ed suffix to root verbs. Write comparative phrases to describe characters in a story.
- Think of a superhero you love and draw them on Comparisons.
- Write comparison sentences about your superhero. For example;
Super Daisy is faster than, stronger than, fiercer than, smarter than the silly Joker.
Maths: Now that we have a better understanding of time it's time to start looking at clocks. Today we are learning all about o'clock - telling time to the hour.
Try these new words:
time, clock, hands, minute, hour, o'clock
Can you read the clock hands in your task to decide what time it is? When it is o'clock the minute hand (longer hand) is always on the 12 and the hour hand (shorter hand) is always directly pointing to a number.
Extra challenge: Draw your own clocks showing different o'clock times.
Humanities: We are going to compare two different countries. Today we are going to Mexico!
Can you find where Mexico is in the world?
Do you know anything about Mexico already?
In this lesson we will be learning about Mexico. We will then be comparing the weather in the UK to the weather in Mexico.
