Welcome To Class G's Home Learning Page! 

Happy Tuesday Class G!

I'm sure you all had a great day learning yesterday - Revising how to recognise a third and writing wonderful letters to a friend in your neatest handwriting, and of course remembering you capital letters and full stops.  I really enjoyed listening to our 'Story Party' on audible at 3pm yesterday.  My best story so far was the one in East Africa about the conga drum. I won't say anymore in case you haven't heard it yet. I can't wait to hear what the stories are about today.   

We hope you all have another fantastic day of learning, and we will chat to you again tomorrow. 

Mrs Hough & Miss McNab =)

Class G's Timetable

Hello Class G! I've made a timetable for you to follow to help you with your home learning. However, it's important to remember this is just a guide. Talk to your adult and decide what is best for you and how much you can achieve each day. Remember to have lots of movement breaks and brain breaks. Don't forget you need brain food too! 

Resources For All Learners

Dear Parents/Carers,

The staff at SMA have been working together to come up with a list of online learning tools, and websites with fun and engaging, educational content. Please take some time to look at the document below. We have included a brief description of each website, as well as the age range we believe it is best suited to. 

Thank you for your continued support, care and love for the school, staff, children and community.

Happy learning! 

SMA Staff.

Monday 30th March

Maths: 

Today, we will be revising our learning of fractions. Click here and join in on 'Lesson 6: Recognising a third'. Complete the flashback, just like we do in class. Then watch the video! After this, you can click on the worksheet - either print it or write the answers down in your blue book. If you'd like, there's some games on Mathletics you can play.

English:

Today, I'd like to you to write a letter to a friend. It could be someone you know from school, someone from brownies or a friend that lives far away. Think about 3 things you would like to tell them you've been doing. Don't forgot to use capital letters, full stops, adjectives and make it exciting! What else could you use? 

Here's a sentence starter you could use: Dear _________, I hope you're well! I've had a really strange week - school has been closed! 

Reading:

Either pick a book from BugClub or read one from your home library. 

R.E:

In RE, you'll be learning the story of Palm Sunday. Either read the story from your Bible at home, or click here to watch the video.  Then, either write it in your books, or log onto BusyThings (using your MyUSO password) and click 'My Assignments'. There is a Palm Sunday template for you to use. I can't wait to see some of your brilliant recounts.

Below, I've added a home learning outline that explains some of the activities we will be completing this week :)

Our Class Book

I've been looking and I've found us a new class book to share together! 
It's called 'Story Party' and it contains lots of different stories for us to listen to. I'm going to listen to a chapter a day - that's two (or sometimes 3) stories! But if you can't thats ok. Just listen for as long you'd like - or listen to a little bit throughout the day!
Will you join me at 3pm everyday?
Click on me to listen to our new class book :)

I've put together all of the Year 1 & 2 high frequency words. See how many you already know and which ones you might need a little more practise at.
I've also attached some fun ways you can try and learn your spellings. Let me know which method is your favourite!

Mind Up!

Each week, I'll be posting a MindUp activity for you to have a go at, just like we do in class.

This week, we will look at 'Your Brain'. This activity helps you to revise what the key parts of the brain are, and their functions. Throughout the week, have a go at some of these activities I've attached, along with the poster to help you. Maybe you could do one a day - remember to take brain breaks to help your learning!
