  Good morning Home School!

We are going to be looking at money on Thursday so it would be great if you could find as many different UK coins as you can before Thursday.

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 Roll your Question Dice . Ask a question that begins with that word. Write the question in your Home School book. Get your highlighter pen. Read your question and highlight a capital letter and a question mark. Did you find any?
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.

Lizzie noticed that Bernard Young plays a guitar and uses rhyming words. Here are the things that Lizzie likes:

I like bike rides and I like a long walk.
I like colouring in with my bright red chalk.
I like Summer and I like Spring.
I like sunshine it makes my heart sing.
I like my sister and I like my brother
but only when we are kind to each other.

Can you spot the words that rhyme?

What a lot of detail you have on your climbing picture Megan!

Today we are going to look at another Bernard Young poem. Listen to the poem The Wizard's Dog.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find a video of Bernard Young saying this poem so I am reading it instead. What is different about the way I have performed his poem and the way he performs his poems?

Y1 – What would the Wizard’s dog eat? Maybe stardust, moonbeams or chopped wands. Draw a picture in your Journal for the front of his Dog Food box. You could add some labels so that I know what everything is.

Y2 - Get your Comprehension booklet and find poem 'The wizard's dog'. Read it again and answer the questions. Use your highlighter pen to find the answers or clues in the poem.

 Maths Year 1  

Get your maths booklet and mark your work from Friday. The answers are in the Homework area. Use a pen or coloured pencil.

Make 10 with your bricks. Use one colour.

What will happen if you get one more brick? How many bricks will you have now? There are 10 bricks and another 1 brick.
1) 10 and 1 makes 11.
2) 10 + 1 = 11       10 add 1 equals 11.
3) 11 = 10 + 1      11 is the same as 10 add 1

How many bricks will you have altogether if you have a tower of 10 and 2 more?
1) 10 and 2 makes ?
2) 10 + 2 = ?
3) ? = 10 + 2           
What number should you say for '?' Can you say all the sentences with the correct number (12)

Can you make all the numbers 11 then 12, then 13 all the way to 20? For each number can you say all 3 sentences?
How many do you need to add to 10 to make 18?
