Set 3 – if you have been learning set 3, we are going to go through the sounds again to help build our fluency:

Then read the RWI book online https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/ 

 

Go onto ‘ebooks’ then you will need to register (this is free of charge) and then you will be able to access all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child. Please note that the RWI phonics scheme is based on lots of repetition. Therefore, we usually read the same book about 3 or 4 times before moving onto a new book. For some children they may need to read it more than this to ensure they are completely fluent in reading the book (no sounding out). 

A general guide is: 

1st read – decoding all the words – sound out as much as you need to. 

2nd read – read for fluency (try to read with more fluency and expression). 

3rd read – read with fluency, expression and comprehension. Try answering the comprehension questions at the back. 

 

This website also provides lots of other information for parents about phonics. It has other resources on here too should you wish to explore! 

 

Guided reading  

Complete the guided reading task at the bottom of the webpage. If the reading is taking you longer than the time allocated, then feel free to share the reading with an adult. 

 

 

9:30- 9:45

Must - Maths  

Year 2  

To understand how to find a fraction of a quantity  

  1. I can use division grouping or sharing to divide 

  1. I can find half, a third and a quarter of a whole number  

  1. I can find three quarters of a whole number 

1st task – Watch this tutorial which explains how to find fractions of a quantity. You will need to be ready with paper and a pencil so that you can do a couple of questions with me. Toward the end I will explain the red challenge so just stop the video there if you don’t want to do the red challenge today.  

 

 

 

 

 

2nd task – choose your activity: 

 

Green – If you would like extra support then watch this tutorial – we will go through some of the orange questions together and I will give you time to do some on your own. 

 

 

 

 

Orange – answer the ‘year 2 Maths orange questions’. Use division to work out the fractions of quantities. There are a couple of challenge questions for you to answer.   

 

 

Red- make sure you  have watched the whole of the tutorial in task 1 which explained how to find ¾ of a quantity then answer the ‘year 2 maths red questions’. You might start to find that you prefer using other methods for finding the answer that are quicker such as mental methods-  that is fine! Then complete the ‘red challenge questions part 2’  

 

 

3rd task-  Look back at the success criteria. Do you think you met all of the success criteria? Is there anything that you need to work on? What do you confident with?

Learning objective: 

To be able to solve multiplication word problems 

  1. I can select relevant information from the question

  1. I can solve the calculation using my preferred method 

 

Today we are going to continue working towards the outcome of our experience – planning a welcome back to school party.  

 

Task 1: 

I forgot that we will need decorations and things to eat our food off of like plates! I need your help to solve the problems to find out how many of each item I might need to buy.  

Watch the tutorial to find out how you will be using your knowledge of multiplication to help me.  

 

 

 

After watching the video choose the level of challenge you would like to do. Green is the easiest level and is for those who need extra support. Orange is for those who feel confident to complete the questions without the support video. Red is for those who would like to challenge themselves.   

   

Task 2: 

I really need your help to solve these problems because I had to work them out quickly. Look at the level you have chosen to do to see how you can help me.  

Green:  

Green group we will be working together to use the grouping method to solve the multiplication problems. I will help you with the first few and then you can help me be solving the rest.  

 

 

 

Resource: 2.3.21 Year 1 Maths Multiplication Outcome Problems 

Orange:   

  Orange group you will be choosing your favourite method of multiplication to help me find out how many of each item I might need to buy. 

Methods you might want to use: 

Resource: 2.3.21 Year 1 Maths Multiplication Outcome Problems 

 

Red - challenge:    

Red group, when I went to the shops, I found out that some of the items could be bought in different size packets. I don’t know which ones would be best to buy so I need you to solve the problems for each item and use your knowledge of multiplication to tell me which packet would give me more of each item.  

Watch the tutorial to find out more about how you can help me. 

 

 

 

Resource: 2.3.21 Year 1 Red Maths Questions 

 

Task 3:

If you need to finish your poem, please finish it before continuing with the rest of this lesson.  

 

Task 1:

You may need to write your poem again in neat, as we want our work to be the best it can be. 

Give your poem a title, this can be anything you want but make sure it makes sense for your poem.
