Class 2 New home-learning activities – 8th June 2020

Expectations for the week beginning 8th June 2020

Reading Daily, for at least 10 minutes.

If you don’t have access to appropriate books, a whole range of books to read online can be found in the Oxford Owls e-book library. Email if you need the class log in code.

Phonics Daily, for at least 15 minutes.

Use any sheets provided, then visit Phonics Family for more ideas to make phonics fun. Use the words from your spelling lists too. On the phoneme spotter story sheet you need to circle the words you find with the spellings for the sound /u/ (oul/oo/u).

Spelling Daily for 10 minutes using the spelling word list for the week. Sort the words by the spelling (we say to the children, “It’s the same sound but different spelling”), then learn to read and spell them.

Writing Complete the Talk for Writing tasks on The Papaya that Spoke. Have a go at the SPaG Mat (two stars is the expected level for Year 1) and complete the handwriting sheets, taking care to form letters correctly.

Maths One task a day and at least 5 IXL skills over the week. (I have provided two levels of Maths mat; choose which one your child is capable of). When you have finished the maths sheets set, visit Hit the Button. This week work on your doubles within 10 and 20. You should know them off by heart.

Topic/other curriculum

  1. Conduct the disappearing puddle experiment and record what you did. (Take photos, make drawings and write notes).
  1. Investigate how plants grow. Plant a seed and record how it grows over the next 6 weeks. I have included a sunflower or bean diary for you to use as they are the easiest to grow. Don’t worry if you want to grow something different, you can make your own record to share with me.  Keep a record until your plant is fully grown. (You may need to keep recording over the summer.) If you are growing something edible, I would love to see you eat it at the end!

30 Days Wild - Continue taking part in 30 Days Wild in June. Keep an eye on Rocklands Class One’s Twitter feed for a new wild task each day. You can tweet your random acts of wildness and tag @rocklandsclass1 in them, or send me the photos and I can tweet them for you.

You can also watch wildlife videos here.
