Pinch and a punch for the first of the month! Happy April Fools Day! Wednesday 1st April. Yesterday I went for a walk in the park and noticed the beautiful trees. Can you notice the difference between the 2 trees? Can you name what kind of trees they are? They begin with D and E. You could you draw or paint a picture of trees today?

Could you draw what the seeds may grow into and use labels root, stem, bulb, flower, leaves? Can you write underneath your drawing what seeds need to help them grow and why? Send me you labelled drawing using our class email. I will keep you updated about the seeds as they grow. Can you tell me what I need to do every day?

I have heard from Luke yesterday to say he is also enjoying doing his activity pack at home.

 

Today try and catch up with some phonics

Look on the phonics link on our class page. 

 

Year 2 children try some of these Maths challenges questions about time after your work on time yesterday.

https://content.twinkl.co.uk/resource/54/6a/t-n-5969-year-2-time-maths-mastery-challenge-cards-_ver_2.pdf?__token__=exp=1585213221~acl=%2Fresource%2F54%2F6a%2Ft-n-5969-year-2-time-maths-mastery-challenge-cards-_ver_2.pdf%2A~hmac=35527a98cd80259dd3d394ab1d1e0cb6060c741ac1eec7f50bef4b76b5580ff1

 

and use passwors CVDTWINKLHELPS

 

Year 1 children have a look at time, looking at o'clock, half past and quarter past and too the hour. We have done some work on this. Use clocks and watches at home to help and use the link

https://content.twinkl.co.uk/resource/8c/0a/t-n-5083-oclock-half-past-and-quarter-past-to-times-activity-sheet-_ver_2.pdf?__token__=exp=1585213824~acl=%2Fresource%2F8c%2F0a%2Ft-n-5083-oclock-half-past-and-quarter-past-to-times-activity-sheet-_ver_2.pdf%2A~hmac=d79bd3e509040780fb173b5cfc24cc76ec8cd91e1ea28906b70eb0d2f942aec8

 

and use password CVDTWINKLHELPS

 

Also you could have a start at writing a diary like we did for Robert Falcon Scott when he went to the Antarctic and the girl in the book The Journey. You could start with 

Dear Diary....

and then write about what you are doing at home and you could write something each day. Don't forget capital letters, full stops, ? ! conjunctions - and , because, so, if, when, 

Send me a copy of your writing and I can share it on our class blog.

Enjoy your day!yeswink
