W/C 18th May 2020

This week’s key learning:

Maths - I understand measure. I can compare length and height, I can use non-standard and standard units to measure.


English - spelling I can read and spell says, push. I can write a sentence using these words. (Always remembering that every sentence starts with a capital letter and ends with a full stop.) 

              writing - read the colour poem and create your own, illustrated colour poem. 

                              read 'Cold' and 'Wind' out loud to your family and talk about how they make you feel.


Phonics - I know all the long oo alternative family sounds.  (ew, ue, u-e,) and the short oo alternative family sounds (u, oul)


Reading books – I can find and read oo words. I can read sentences. I can answer questions about what I have read.  This week’s books are: Bullfrog is the best, Follow the clues, Unlucky!


Religious Education Jesus and Thomas. I know that Thomas did not believe Jesus was alive. I can reflect on the times when we don’t understand what is happening.

White Rose Maths

Tuesday - Lesson 2 – Measure length (1)

Wednesday - Lesson 3 – Measure length (2)

Thursday - Lesson 4 – Introduce weight and mass

Friday – Challenge


Spelling - says & push


  • Everyday, try and find this weeks words 'says' and 'push', in any text. (This could be in a story book, the newspaper, a cereal box) You do not need to read the whole sentence, just see if you can spot the word.
  • Everyday, practise spelling the words on your white board. Remember to; say the word, look at the word and read it, then have a go at writing it without looking at it. Check you have spelt it correctly. Repeat at least 5 times. (If you notice you are forming any of your letters incorrectly, please make sure and practice the correct formation.)
  • Everyday, write one sentence using the word says. Then write one sentence using the word push. Once you have written your sentence check it, does it start with a capital letter? Does it end with a full stop? Can you and someone else read every word? Are all letters correctly formed? Use a coloured pencil to correct your work.
  • By the end of the week you should have 5 sentences for each word and the aim is to improve on the previous days sentence.
