Home Learning - 8.1.21


In maths this week we are revisiting some knowledge from Year 1 (Monday) and then moving on to our Year 2  topic of money 


We are looking at recognising and knowing the value of different denominations of coins. 


Ask a grown up if you can look at some coins and notes at home...


What is the value of each coin/note? How do you know?

How many 1 pence coins will you need to make 2p? 5p? 10p? 20p? 50p? 1 pound?


Can you name each coin and note? What is different? What is the same? 


Do notes have a greater value than the coins? 


Which is the hardest/easiest to count? Why? 



Please practise this week's spellings by logging on to Spelling Shed. If you have any issues logging in please email me smiley

Adding -ed and -ing to root verbs, changing y to i just for suffix –ed


worry, worried, worrying


Introduce the word worry. What would the word worry be in the past tense and how would be written? Can you what changes in the spelling? The ‘y’ changes to ‘i’ before adding ‘ed’. The root verb (worry) remains the same when adding –ing. 



Copied, copying, hurried, hurrying, carried, carrying, tried, trying


Read these words and identify the root verb.


Can you create sentences using the different forms of the verbs and identify what is different about them? Don't forget to talk about tense smiley


Do you have a favourite traditional tale? 


Can you remember what my favourite traditional tale is ....?


I will give you a clue - it is linked to my favourite animal  and he likes to hang out next to my board in the classroom wink 


Can you retell your favourite traditional tale?


You can use your traditional tale books at home to help you. If you don't have any traditional stories at home, you could ask and adult to find one online, or use the Hansel & Gretel story from yesterday. 


  • You could either write a short version of your traditional tale in your home learning exercise book (don't forget spellings and punctuation). 


  • You could draw pictures from your favourite traditional tale and label them with sentences. 


  • You could create your own Comic strip of your favourite tale.
