Yesterday you wrote a recount of your Christmas Holidays. Today I would like you to edit and improve your recount and also write a little bit more. I would like you to start today by reading what you have already written. You will need an adult to help you with this. While you are reading I would like you to check the following things:
When we edit our work in school, we use a green pen to make changes. If you have a green pen at home you could use that or a different colour. You might need an adult to help you with your editing.
When you have checked your work, you can carry on writing. Did you tell me about your Christmas presents? Did you do anything special on Boxing Day?
When you have finished your writing today, I would like you to email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to reading all about your Christmas Holidays!
For your Mighty Writing on Monday, you will be retelling your favourite fairy story or traditional tale. Click on the document below for more information:
First of all I would like you to watch this video.
Now you will need to find something from around your house that you can use as tens and ones. In school we have our tens and ones equipment don't we but you might like to use lollipop sticks, straws, pencils (or even strips of paper) for your tens and beads, buttons or counters for your ones. I would then like you to choose one of the number cards and make your number in tens and ones like I have done. Try and choose a few to make. Take pictures of your work and send it to our class email.

In your phonics lesson yesterday, you learnt that the grapheme 'ea' can make different sounds in different words e.g. 'tea' and 'head'. Click on the document below. There are lots of different 'ea' words on there. Look at each word carefully and sound it out. You might like to draw the sound buttons on to help you. Try to work out which sound the 'ea' grapheme makes in each of the words. You could cut out the words and sort them into 2 piles depending on what sound the 'ea' grapheme makes.
Now choose one or two of the words to write in a sentence e.g.
The sea at the beach is blue.
Yesterday you learnt about homophones. You watched the two videos and had a go at Activity 1. Today I would like you to do Activity 2, 3 and 4.
Your spelling sentences are as usual based on what you have been learning this week in Phonics. Please see below your spelling sentences for next Friday.
Story time with Mrs Pilgrim
I hope you enjoy the story!
Dear Class 2,
Firstly I hope you had a lovely Christmas. What did you get from Santa? What was your favourite part?
I had a very different Christmas with my family but a very lovely one, we did a family quiz on Zoom on Christmas eve which we all enjoyed. Did any of you do anything similar?
Over this period of home learning we thought it would be nice to do some cooking on a Friday afternoon. If you have any ideas of what you think we should make then please do email them to our class email address.

Find a comfy spot in your house and do some reading for at least 15 minutes. Choose a fiction (story) book to read today. You could read independently or to a grown up. Get your grown up to ask you some questions about what you have read. Can you retell the story in your own words?
