Spelling Test

*Please conduct a spelling test of the spellings given out last Friday if you haven't already. New spellings to learn are available below. Please test these next Thursday!*

Spellings

Here are your spellings to practise for next week. How did you get on in your test?

Phonics

Today we are looking at adding '-ed' to verbs. Can you write down the correct spelling for these verbs - all ending in '-ed'?

Check your answers...

 

Now sort these words with '-ed' endings - has the '-ed' just been added to the root word, or did the final consonant need to be doubled because of a short vowel sound? You can draw this little table out in your book and then write the words in if you like. 

 

 

Finally, have a look at the sentences in this document and see if you can spot the mistakes. Can you write the correct spelling?

Handwriting

 

Have a look at the start of the number formation video below and then complete the handwriting sheet or have a go on your own in your exercise book. Don't forget the golden handwriting rules!

(Can you remember them? Tell someone else what they are!)

**** surprise PLEASE IGNORE the lead up on the number one, it's impossible to create this number correctly on a PC - but we JUST draw a straight line down for the number 1 at school. surprise ****

Reading

There are three levels to choose from for this activity. Please just complete one sheet and choose the level most appropriate for your child. There's some guidance on how tricky each level is in the image below.

Children should read the text and then answer the questions, giving as much detail as possible. Sometimes they are asked to answer in full sentences, so please encourage them to do this where appropriate. 

The reading task guidance gives you an outline of the type of questions used in these comprehension exercises - and some ideas of the type of questions that you can use when reading at any time with your children at home.

Maths

Problem of the Day: Can you solve it? Send us your answer on Seesaw please.

Today we will be learning to recognise the value of different coins and notes.

 

Recap the value of the coins that have been introduced so far.

 

 

Ask: Which coin is greater in value? A 50 pence coin or a one pound coin?

How many pence are there in one pound?

Show the two pound coin below. 

Explain that two one pound coins are equal in value to one two pound coin. Place two pound coins next to the two pound coin. 

 

Ask: Which coin is greater in value: two pence or two pounds?

Explain how pounds are worth more than pence. There are 100 pence in one pound so two pounds is greater in value than two pence.

 

Show the five pound note, a ten pound note and a 20 pound note below. Point to each note and repeat the names of each one. Give children time to study the notes and discuss them.

 

 

Ask: What do you think is greater in value, the notes or the coins?

Say that the notes represent pounds. There are 100 pence in one pound so the notes are worth more than the pence coins.

 

Ask: How many pound coins have the same value as a five pound note?

Five pound coins have the same value as one five pound note. Count out five pound coins and place them next to the five pound note.

 

Ask: How many pound coins have the same value as a ten pound note?

Ten pound coins have the same value as one ten pound note. Count out ten pound coins and place them next to the ten pound note.

 

 

Ask: How many pound coins have the same value as a 20 pound note?

20 pound coins have the same value as one 20 pound note. Count out 20 pound coins and place them next to the 20 pound note.

 

Return to the picture of one pound coin, two pound coin, five pound note, ten pound note and 20 pound note below.

Ask: Which note or coin has the greatest value? How do you know?

Which note or coin has the least value? How do you know?

 

Show a set of ten pound coins. Count in ones to demonstrate that there are ten pounds altogether.

 

 

Organise the pound coins into groups of two. Exchange each set of two pound coins for two pound coins. Count in twos to demonstrate that there is still ten pounds altogether.

 

Children repeat: Two pounds, four pounds, six pounds, eight pounds, ten pounds.

Organise the pound coins into groups of five. Exchange each set of five pound coins for a five pound note. Count in fives to demonstrate that there are still ten pounds altogether.

 

 

Organise the pound coins into one group of ten. Exchange the ten pound coins for a ten pound note.

 

 

Task:

Regrouping and exchanging sets of pound coins.

If you can, use the resource below to make the coins and notes required for this activity.

 

Children count out 20 pound coins.

Children to practise regrouping the pound coins according the value shown.

 

· regroup the pound coins into groups of two and exchange each group for two pound coins.

· regroup the pound coins into groups of five and exchange each group for five pound notes.

· regroup the pound coins into groups of ten and exchange each group for ten pound notes.

· regroup the pound coins into a group of 20 and exchange for a 20 pound note.

 

You could set up a bank and 'role play' this activity.

 

If you are unable to print out the resource, you could have a go at drawing and making your own notes and coins on paper. 

 

There are some challenges below that you could also have a go at.
