Doves Wk10

Week 10 - English
Creative Writing - We are continuing with our Maisie and the Dragon work.
Reading - We are continuing to read Beaks and Feet. Click on the link and answer the questions below.
Grammar - Suffixes for superlative adjectives.
Spellings - Year1 and Year2 spellings are below. You should practise spellings by writing them out and then using them in creative sentences. Use the following website to help with the learning and pronunciation of words:
Handwriting - Below are two handwriting activities for your child to complete - Activity 1 - Cursive letter cards (e - h). Activity 2 - 10 of the first 100 frequency words to copy using the cursive handwriting style. Please refer carefully to the handwriting style used and look at the Benwick cursive alphabet model (Week 9 home learning page). I have attached a file with handwriting paper which can be printed off at home. Alternatively, we can provide you with handwriting books/paper packs. These can be collected from the school office.

Remember to do 10 minutes of TT Rockstars every day! 
Daily Calculations:
This week we'd like you to do your calculations by playing a game - you should now be familiar with these and getting faster!.
 Year 1: Games 1-3
Year 2: games 1-5
You could print off the bingo cards or write the number sentences in your book.
Ask an adult to play with you and check your answers - have fun!
Daily maths lessons: These might look a bit different, we want to keep things varied and interesting. Mrs Talbot is planning Y2 maths and Mrs Piper is planning Y1 maths for Doves. 
There are  separate PDFs and resources for each year group in Doves.  
Mrs Talbot
This week in topic we are finding out about different materials and their properties. See the 2  PDFs. Enjoy finding out! Mrs Piper
Its important in times like these, when its easiest to think and talk about negative issues, that we ALL take time to think about the things that make us happy. This is vital to our mental and physical wellbeing. The attached sheet could be printed or used for reference to prompt children to draw and write about some things that make them happy. My dog Bronte make me really happy and even on the worst of days always makes me smile and makes me feel loved. What will you draw and write about? (Parents, you could always do this exercise too, alongside your child!) Mrs Talbot 
This week, we are looking at athletics and jumping. You don't need any special equipment (see the attachment). There's lots of ideas here to develop agility. Physical activity also improves wellbeing, something I'm going to try to do more of too! Mrs Talbot
