Maths

This week we are focusing on counting in multiples of 2, 5 and 10 (the multiplication symbol will be introduced later on in the year. Below are a variety of activities for you to pick from but some activities are also set on My Maths: 

 

Practical ideas: 

  • Create a hopscotch where you can practise counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s or 10s. 

  • Order multiples of 2, 5 or 10 cards and then chant the number sequence (cards attached below) 

  • Player 1 chants in multiples of either 2, 5 or 10. When they stop Player 2 should write the next multiple

 

Note: When counting in multiples of 10, the children should practise counting from 0 e.g. 0, 10, 20 30...  and from other numbers e.g.  5, 15, 25, 35 ...

 

Written activities: 

  • Cut and stick multiples tasks

  • Complete the sequences

  • Odd one out

  • Word problems

 

English 

 

This week we are looking at the text 'The Day The Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt. In class, we are going to learn a letter by the new character, Turquoise Crayon. Below you will find a story map and his letter. 

We will then plan and write our own letter based on a new character, for example Glue Stick. Go through the PowerPoint 'The Day the Classroom Rebelled' for some ideas. Below there is a plan to help you with your writing which includes a completed example too.

God Giving the Law to the Israelites

  • Watch:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTGXl_LmuxI
  • This clip shows when God gave the law to Moses.
  • Christians call these rules the Ten Commandments but Jewish people call them the Law or Torah.
  • The first five books of the Christian Bible are also the Jewish Holy Book called the Torah.
  •  Christian and Jews try to follow these commandments or Torah.
  • The Torah teaches Jews what God is like and how they should live their lives, the Torah is very special for Jews. It is read every week in the synagogue.
  • Follow this link to learn about how Jews create Mezuzahs to help them remember their holy scriptures. http://www.reonline.org.uk/specials/jwol/
  • Look at "what is a mezuzah? And "make a mezuzah" on Jewish way of life. Go to "what we do" - "space" - "what is a mezuzah?" and "make a mezuzah".
  • Your child can use these instructions to make their own Mezuzah, containing a message about something that is important to them.
  • As your child makes their own mezuzah, talk about what David thinks about as he touches it. Why is it so important to him to be reminded to read and obey what he believes is "Gods Law"? What things are helpful reminders to us? What things do we believe are important? What guides us?
  •  The PowerPoint has some additional information about Mezuzahs.
