  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.

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.

Y2 get your comprehension booklet and mark your work from yesterday.
Yesterday you listened to a poem about the Wizard's dog. Today I would like you to think about ideas for 'The Witch’s cat'.
How do cats behave? What do the like? What don’t they like? Ask your family for ideas. My cat used to hate getting wet. He always jumped on my lap when I was sat down. He loved playing with string.

In your Journal write 3 headings at the top of a page – behave, like, not like
Under each heading draw or write (or both) as many ideas about cats as you can. I have started mine below.

Remember these are notes not sentences. We will be using these notes tomorrow to write our sentences.

 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.

Can you find any real coins at home? The coins we have in the UK are

Today we are going to look at the coins up to 10p. If you can find real coins for 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p then I would like you do do a rubbing of each coin in your Journal. Put the coin under the piece of paper then gently colour over the top so that the pattern comes through. Is the pattern on both sides of the coin the same? 

The 1p coin is worth 1 penny. The 2p coin is worth 2 pence. My friend said that 2p is the same as getting two 1p coins. How can that be? 

I have 5p in my purse. What coins could I have? In your journals can you draw my purse and the coins I could have in it that would make 5p. Is there another way? Draw another purse to show me. Can you find all the ways?

Log onto Numbots and practice your mental maths.

Maths Year 2  
Get your maths booklet and Journal to mark your work from Friday. The answers are in the Homework area. Use a pen or coloured pencil.

I have 10p in my purse. What coins could I have? In your Journal draw a purse then draw or write the coins I could have in it that would make 10p. Is there another way? Can you find all the different combinations of coins that I could have in my purse that would make 10p? You can record your answers by drawing my purse each time or writing an addition equation. Remember that I can only have real UK coins. If you have found any UK coins at home then you can use them to help.

Complete page 9 of your maths booklet 'Adding coins'.

Can you remember how to correctly form your CAPITAL LETTERS? Use your whiteboard pen and go over the CAPITAL  letters P, T, R, A, B, M, F, K on your laminated letter formation sheet. Remember that capital letters always start at the top and you do not join them.

Y1 Get your Punctuation and Grammar booklet and complete the next page 'First Names'. Remember that names are proper nouns so they always start with a capital letter. The children in the book have written their names but it looks like they have forgotten something. Can yo help them and write their names correctly?

Can you sort them out and write them again on the lines. Remember your froggy fingers and make sure that all the tails on letters go down below the line. 

Y2 when you have finished then get your highlighter pen and highlight all the capital letters that you have written. Also highlight all the letters with tails. How many did you fine?  


Y1 get your comprehension booklet and mark your Firework poem answers from yesterday.

Y1 & Y2 Read a few pages from your school book. Then quiet reading - you can carry on reading your school book, or choose a book you have at home or log onto PurpleMash and continue reading the Serial Mash book that you started at school.

Favourite places to read. It can be fun to read to your brother or sister.


For the rest of the week I would like you to see what else can you find out about Easter. Why do Christians celebrate Easter? What is Good Friday and Easter Sunday? What is the significance of hot cross buns and Easter eggs? Are there any other special foods that are linked to Easter? Are there any special songs? You could look in books at home, try this link or search on the internet using www.researchify.co.uk.
