Well done Class 1. We have made it to March and fingers crossed our last week of home learning. We are so excited to see you in school next week – Mrs Plant is really excited to meet the whole class in person!!! Keep up the good work over the last few days and enjoy the first days of Spring.

Phonics

We are going to practice our Phase 5 sounds this week.

Fill in the missing sounds to complete the words or write each word out with the correct sound.

English

We are going to spend the next three days finding out about our final aviation pioneer. Her name is Amelia Earhart and she is another female aviator just like Amy Johnson. Amelia is American though not English. Watch this presentation to find out a bit more about Amelia.

I am sure that you will recognise lots of similarities (things that are the same) between Amelia and Amy but there are also lots of differences too. Your task today is to compare the lives of Amelia Earhart and Amy Johnson and investigate what similarities and differences there are. You can record your ideas in a table like this if you want to, and use the template on Seesaw, or you can decide to organise your work in a different way. You might need to look back at the work you did on Amy Johnson last week to help you. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

We will celebrating World Book Day and our love of reading later this week so Mrs Platten is going to read you some chapters from this book about Amelia’s life over the next few days. We call this sort of non-fiction book a biography.

Mathematics

Today we are going to be solving some problems involving adding lengths. Some of the problems involve repeated addition of 2s and 5s, so before we start have a practise at counting in 2s and 5s. Use the 100 squares below to help you out.

Theme

Today we would like you to find out more about the United Kingdom and create a fact file. You could think about the following questions to help you.

What countries make up the United Kingdom?

What are their capital cities?

What currency (money) do the countries use?

What is the main language used?

What do the flags of each country look like?

We have added a template to your 2Dos on Purple Mash or you could create your own fact file.

The Union Flag, also known as the Union Jack, is the national flag of the United Kingdom. It is the British flag. It is called the Union Flag because it stands for the union of the countries of the United Kingdom under one King or Queen. We will find out more about this flag when we return to school.

Today as an added challenge we would like you to create your own Union Flag. You can just draw and colour it or get a bit more creative. It is entirely up to you. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

We have also added a template to your 2Dos on Purple Mash to create a flag online.
