# Wednesday 13th January

Good morning Class 2!

Click on the link below to watch a good morning message from Mrs Pilgrim.

## English

Our topic for this half term is Once upon a time. Many fairy stories have castles in them.  Can you think of any fairy stories with castles in? Today and tomorrow we are going to do some descriptive writing about castles. Click on the Word document below to see some pictures of castles and some questions. Look at each picture and talk about it using the questions to help guide you.

Now choose your favourite castle picture. It might be one of the castle pictures above or you might have your own castle picture at home that you prefer.

Today I would like you to write some adjectives to describe the castle. Adjectives are words that describe. You can write your list of adjectives on the template below or on any piece of paper you have at home. Keep them safe because you will need to use them for your writing tomorrow!

## Maths

Today we are moving on to learning all about Multiplication and Division. Our times tables will help us with this. Our first times table we are going to practise is the 2 times table.

1 x 2 = 2

2 x 2 = 4

3 x 2 = 6

4 x 2 = 8

5 x 2 = 10

6 x 2 = 12

7 x 2 = 14

8 x 2 =16

9 x 2 = 18

10 x 2 = 20

11 x 2 = 22

12 x 2 =24

Can you practise saying it? Can you spot anything?

Today we are thinking about groups of objects and spotting if they are equal or unequal. Watch this video to find out more.

Year 1:

Complete this sheet. Complete the sentences to describe each picture.

Now choose a sentence from the below document and then make the equal groups using objects from home such as lego blocks, toy cars, cuddly toys. How many ways can you show us one sentence? Take a photo and send it to the class email. See if you can do 3 or 4.

Year 2:

Complete this sheet.

Now, choose a sentence from the below document, write it down, and then make the equal groups using objects from home such as lego blocks, toy cars, cuddly toys. Then draw a picture. See if you can do 3 or 4.

## Phonics

Click on the link below and play a game of Buried Treasure on Phonics Play. Year 1s choose Phase 3 and Year 2s choose phase 5.

### Year 1:

Yesterday you learnt that the grapheme 'ch' can make different sounds in different words e.g. chomp, school.

Play 'Build a Tower' Game

Click on the Word document below.

If you have a printer, print the word list and cut them up. Spread the words out on a table and place one building block on top of each word. Take turns at choosing a word to read. If you read it correctly, you can keep the block and begin building a tower. Whoever has the tallest tower when all the words are gone is the winner!

If you do not have a printer, you could copy the words onto little pieces of card or paper instead and then play the game as above.

### Year 2:

Yesterday you started a BBC lesson all about coordinating conjunctions. You watched a video and completed Activity 1 and 2. Today I would like you to do Activity 3. Click on the link below and scroll down to find Activity 3. You will need some paper and a pencil.

History

Today we will be finding out a bit more about Castles. Read the PowerPoint below.

Now you have read the PowerPoint can you complete this sheet to tell us a bit about what you have learned today.

A small message from Miss Newton for Fridays cooking.

Dear Class 2,

I thought I would quickly let you know what you will need for Friday.

500g Bread flour (white or wholemeal)

7g (1 sachet) Fast action yeast - if you are using fresh yeast you will need 14g and 1 tsp of sugar which you will need to mix together and leave for 10 minutes before using.

1tsp Salt

350ml lukewarm water

small amount of oil

If you are struggling to find yeast and bread flour in the supermarket then the Bakery in Bishops Waltham called Stainers sells both bread flour and fresh yeast. This is where I get mine from.

Have a lovely week.

Love from Miss Newton
