Thursday 7th May

Good morning Class 2.

You are very near the end of your learning week now that it is Thursday. It is VE Day tomorrow which means we can spend time commemorating the end of world war 2, 75 years ago.

Yesterday I had a very busy day trying to make sure I had got all my jobs finished so that I can spend time with my family on what would normally have been a Bank Holiday Friday to commemorate this special day.

I started with Joe Wicks PE, then made cakes, took Max the dog out and painted my garden fences. Phew! I was hot and tired at the end of the day but I’m looking forward to a rest on Friday now.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and enjoy the sunshine. I think he will have his hat on... hip hip hooray!

love Mrs Miller

Good morning - what does the word double mean? What does the word half mean?  What do you have to do to double a number and what do you have to do to half them?

Morning Job

Yr 1 Write out the numbers from 1 to 10. Write the double amounts for each number. Next write the numbers 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10. Write half that number. (The answer to half of 1 won't be a whole number.)

Yr 2  Write out the numbers from 1 to 20. Write the double amounts for each number. Next write out the even numbers and half them. How are you going to half the odd numbers? (Tip, split the number up and half it in 2 parts - eg,

Half of 9,   9=8+1     1/2 of 8 is 4

1/2 of 1 is 1/2

Add the answers together 4+1/2 = 4 1/2  so half of 9 is 4 1/2.

Maths

Year 1

Click on the link below to the White Rose website. Select Week 1, Lesson 5: Measure Capacity. First, watch the video and then have a go at the activity.

Year 2

Below is a document with lots of different measuring capacity problems on. Some are much trickier than others! You can choose three or four (or more!) of these to solve. Remember to read the problem carefully to work out what it is actually asking you to do. Use your maths book to do any workings that you need to and also to explain your answers.

English

As tomorrow is a bank holiday, you could also test your spellings if you like.

Topic

Today we are thinking about what a habitat is. It does what a den does, it is a good, safe place for a creature to live in.

Each of these clips from BBC Bitesize show how the habitat is suitable fro the animals which lives there. At the end of the clips, tell someone else how that particular habitat suits that particular animal.

We have had a comment from one of the parents who is a Forest School teacher -

Reminder from Badger Tom: I hope you had a great time making your dens- don’t forget you can make a mini-den for a toy if you can’t find materials for a person-size den.
Like we talked about last year- it’s really important to take your den down again. Bugs, birds and other wildlife will quickly move into your den and make it their home so you either need to take it down before they do or keep it up all year. We don’t want them to move in and then have their home taken away just when they’ve got comfy!
