  Good morning Home School!

Morning work

Get your journals and mark your morning work from Friday. The answers are in the Homework area of the website. Use a pen or a coloured pencil.

Y1 Carefully cut out and make your Question Dice . Roll the dice and think of a question starting with that word. Play with someone else in your family.
Y2 What day is it today? Write the correct word in joined up on the back of your number line. Use your dictionary to check that it is spelt correctly.

Listen to the poem I Like What I Like by Bernard Young. 
What do you notice about the way he performs his poems? I think he is playing an instrument? What is it?

What things to do you like? I have started a list of things I like:

I like snakes and dogs and cats.
I like funny pictures of animals in hats.
I like church bells when they are ringing.
I like joining in with everyone singing.
Write a list of things you like in your Home School book.
The title could be ‘I Like What I Like’.
Remember to write the short date and underline your title and date with a ruler.

Optional: Draw a picture of one or more of things that you like. Send me a photo of your list or pictures.
