Hi Kangaroos!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed seeing the sun shining, I certainly did!

Joke of the day: What is a witch’s favourite subject in school? Spelling!

Spellings: This week your spellings are words that have the added suffix -er

Spelling rule: We use the ending -er when two things are being compared. This is called the comparative.

quicker

faster

taller

shorter

higher

smaller

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

Example: colder

The weather turns colder in the winter months.

Maths: Can you answer these word problems in your home learning books? You will need to write the calculation too.

Example: If there were 5 petals on each flower, how many petals would there be on 3 flowers? 3 x 5 = 15

I would also like you to practise your multiplication and division facts. The more you practise, the better you will become! Write the questions and answers in your home learning book.

Writing: Your next Writing lesson is: https://www.thenational.academy/year-2/english/the-firework-makers-daughter-to-make-inferences-year-2-wk2-2#slide-2
