Hi Kangaroos!

Joke of the day: How do you know if there’s an elephant under your bed? Your head hits the ceiling!

Spellings: This week, your spellings are words with the ‘o’ sound spelt ‘a’

Spelling rule: a is the most common spelling for the ‘o’ sound after w and qu.







Writing: Write each of the spellings in a sentence in your home learning book.

Example: wasp

The wasp was hovering around the delicious sweet foods.

  2. 18
  3. 23
  4. 82
  5. 763

  8. I made a mistake on this one, oops! It was meant to say how much more would Sally have than Ben and the answer should have been £21.
  9. 86cm
  10. 38
  11. 26
  12. 7

Maths: Today, I would like you to work on pages A4 and C4-C5.

A4 is a division game, were you have to divide the numbers on the racetrack by 2. See if you can record how long it takes for you to get to the finish line. When dividing, if you are stuck, count in 2s until you get to the number you are dividing.

C4- C5 you have to count the objects on page C4 and record your findings on page C5. Numeral is the number e.g. 1, 2, etc, and number word is the written word e.g. one, two, etc.

For example: 14 divided by 2 = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, which is 7 steps so 14 divided by 2 equals 7.
