Good Morning Children and Your Parents.
We hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend break. Did some of you plan to do something special for Father’s Day? Mrs Ahmad bought her Father a new pair of shoes and her daughter baked her Grandad his favourite fruit cake. Mrs Stansfield and her family celebrated Father's Day with a barbecue in the garden.
The weather is going to warm up this week so please make sure you wear your sun hat and sun cream, and remember to stay safe in the sun.
Here are today’s activities:
Joe Wicks will not be delivering daily fitness activities from this week. He has decided to deliver his sessions on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. For the rest of the week we will continue to use the workout sessions from his collection.
We hope you have practiced your spellings from last week. Don’t worry as you can all have another practice before we do our test. GOOD LUCK!
This week's spelling rule is ‘le’ endings. Every syllable needs a vowel. (You learnt how to count syllables in our poetry work a couple of weeks ago.) So, if you hear 'l' at the end of a word and you can't hear a vowel sound, most commonly you will use 'le'.
Today’s phonics story is called ‘Toy Choice’ and we are learning to read words containing le saying /l/.
Here are today’s phonics activities linked to the phonics story.
Activity 1: Match the words with ‘le’ to the correct picture.
Activity 2: Read the sentences to reveal the clues about toys. Can you work out which toy the clue is describing.
Activity 3: Phoneme Spotter story. Read the story and then highlight all the ‘le’ words.
Y2 Mental and Oral starter Activity:
Click on the addition train carriage, then select adding two digit numbers. You will need some paper to work out the calculations. Remember to use the column addition method to check your answers, before clicking on the answer button.
You need to be familiar with all of the mathematical vocabulary used in the calculations:
for example: total, add together, increase, plus, find the sum of and more than all mean addition.

In English this week we are going to be reading some poems about the winter season.
Today we are going to start our lesson with a reading a poem 'What Could It Be?' Then you will need to answer some questions about the poem. Remember to read it a few times to improve your fluency and expression before answering the questions.
Questions about the poem: You can check your answers after you have completed the questions.
Use Google images and search for ‘Winter Season images’.
Write a list of 8 interesting captions that you think of when you see the images.
I’ve started my list:
1) bare branches with snow balancing on them
2) a smiling snowman in the centre of a snowy field
3) sledging down smooth, step, snow covered hills
4) frosted windows with patterns that look like ferns
Lunch time: You must all be ready for lunch by now.
We are going to look at our final Julia Donaldson story this week. I hope you have loved reading the ones we have looked at so far. Again, we are going to read the story in parts.
Let’s start with our prediction task:
What have we found out so far about the lessons Jesus taught?
As well as telling stories through parables, Jesus also gave speeches called sermons to teach people what he wanted them to know. Explain that one of his most famous sermons is the Sermon on the Mount.
Go through the PowerPoint slides explaining to the children that beatitudes were a series of blessings declared by Jesus during His "Sermon on the Mount".
Explain that another important teaching from the Sermon on the Mount is the Lord’s Prayer. Read this through together on the slides and explain that most Christians know this prayer by heart because it is so important.
Task: Use the key to crack the code and spell out what Jesus taught at the Sermon on the Mount. You can check your answers with the answer sheet once you have cracked the code.
Jesus was a teacher. He taught people about God and how God wanted them to behave and to treat each other.
How many people can you think of that teach you things?
Choose one person that teaches you something. Draw a picture of them and describe what they teach you.
Music: For singing today we have chosen some of your favourite songs to sing. We're sure that you will enjoy singing them and don't forget the actions!
It’s always good to finish the day off with a story. Make sure you are sitting nice and comfortably.
We hope you had a fab day and a great start to the week. Remember to always try your best and to keep that growth mindset.
Bye for now and we'll see you all tomorrow for another great day!
Thank you for all your hard work today!
Mrs Stansfield and Mrs Ahmad
