Yesterday we read the first few pages of the story Masai and I by Virginia Kroll. Now I am going to read you the whole story. While I am reading, write down any new words or words that you do not understand. You could also write down some questions. What would you like to know about the Maasai people?
Today we are learning more about recognising and naming 2D shapes. Watch the below video and then complete the worksheet.
Today we are learning how to draw some 2D shapes. What do you think we might need to use to help us to do this neatly and accurately? That's right, a ruler! Most of the 2D shapes have straight sides don't they so if you have a ruler at home use this to help you with your work today. Remember hold the ruler steady with the hand you don't write with so your drawing doesn't go all wibbly wobbly! Watch the video below and then have a go at the worksheet.

Yesterday you learnt that the letters 'se' make 's' sound in words such as 'cheese'. Let's start by reading some words with this sound in. Look at the picture below and read each word by breaking it down and then blending it back together.
Yesterday we learnt how to add the suffix -ing to verbs. We are going to continue practising this today. Have another look at the Power Point to remind you of what we learned yesterday:

Cooking with Miss Newton
Dear Class 2,
This week I will be showing you how to make Uji which is an African porridge. The reason I am making this is because we have started our new topic It's a small world. We will be finding lots out about Africa over the next few weeks.
You will need:
32g Millet Flour
96g Cornmeal Flour
1 Cup of water
3 cups of boiling water
Pinch of cinnamon
1 tsp of sugar
I suggest having something sweet to drizzle on like Honey. This is nothing like any porridge you will have tasted before.
If you can't source the ingredients then please do watch my video's anyway and you can see what this looks like and how it turns out.
