Which letters are missing in this version of the alphabet?



How many words can you think of and write for each split digraph?



Now get your electric guitars out and rock along to this split digraph song!


Yesterday, you began to write your own version of 'The Little Red Hen'. Today, we will be focusing on checking and improving our work.


First, look at the section of a story that somebody has written below. Can you say how they could improve it? When answering these questions, say 'It would be even better if.....'. Practise correcting any mistakes and add in anything that you feel is missing for it to be a fantastic story. 



Now that you have had a practise at correcting work, you are going to check your own story. Use a blue pen (or any colour which is different to your writing pencil or pen) to make any corrections. 


Think about:


* Capital letters and full stops

* Missing words

* Adding adjectives

* Is a question mark needed?

* Could you use an exclamation mark?

* Can sentences be joined or extended using an ‘and’?

* Spelling the Year 1 Common Exception words correctly


*Don't worry if this process makes your work look a little messier or if you seem to have forgotten a lot of the Every Time I Write rules. This lesson is designed to show you how real authors write amazing stories as they have to have their work checked over by lots of different people quite a few times until it is made into a book! They will sometimes have to write some parts again and again until they are happy with it! The aim is to make your story even better than it already is and to know your targets for next time!*


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



Today we will be continuing to revise counting to and across 100, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or from any given number. We will also be revising how to count, read and write numbers to 100 in numerals.


Lets warm up today by writing down the mistake in each sequence. Can you explain why it is a mistake using key terms such as 'tens' and 'ones'?



Now we are going to recap on grouping in 10s to identify how many tens and ones are within a number. Watch the video below to guide your learning.


Play Dienes ‘Build it’ game:

Adult to call out a 2 digit number up to 100 (start low!)

Children to use Dienes to make numbers. Check that these are correct. Then, children say the stem sentences to match the number:



Place Value challenge:

Show children how to use place value charts when reading and recording tens and ones within a number.

Show these numbers using a place value chart and Dienes.



How many groups of 10 are there?

How many ones are there?

Children to show on whiteboards with a line down and the letters T and O at the top: E.g., show me 36 – write 3 under the T and 6 under the 0. Repeat for other numbers up to 100.



Now have a go at the challenge below!
