Learning Activities for today

Good Morning Class 2,
It’s Friday! I hope your week has been fun.
We will be contacting all families over the course of today and next week. This is just to say hello and see if there is anything we can do to support you. I have put a couple of examples of home learning are on the class blog, so please do send in some examples to be included.
I look forward to speaking to you all soon.

Below are some learning activities for today.
Learning Objective/Focus: Recipe writing
Main input: Recap writing a recipe from yesterday. What are the important features? Discuss what makes a good friend- i.e. caring, funny, and loving. Create a mind map (spider diagram) of key features of a good friend.
Activities: MUST – Write a recipe for “Friendship”. Make sure you include some bossy verbs.
SHOULD – Write a recipe for “Friendship”. Make sure you write in full sentences. Try exploring different types of bossy verbs.
COULD – Write a recipe for “Friendship”. Make sure you include time words, bossy (imperative) verbs and include illustrations.
Extension Activity Ideas: Write a recipe for the opposite of a friend!

Learning Objective/Focus: Multiplication
Main input: Talk about multiplication of two digit numbers by one digit. What methods could you use? Explore the method of partitioning e.g. 25×6 ( 20×6 + 5×6).
Activities: MUST – Ask the children to find the answers to some simple multiplications using partitioning of known facts (times tables from yesterday). Start with lower numbers such as between 11-24 e.g. 14×3- using known facts 10×3+4×3.
SHOULD – Explore multiplying 2 digit numbers by 2, 5 and 10 initially and then 3, 4 and 7 from yesterday. Encourage the use of partitioning into known facts (from times tables yesterday) to support.
COULD – Explore multiplying 2 digit numbers by 3, 4, 5,6,7,8 and 9. Encourage the use of partitioning or long multiplication. Ask the children to explain how they calculated the answer. Extend by multiplying 3 digit numbers.
