Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I spent some time walking my dog Mollie and playing football with my children. It was lovely! I also had some fantastic news on Friday, take a look on the weekly overview page to meet the beautiful Taliah Grace Meyers
For your learning today, I have given you some spellings for English where you will look at the suffixes -less and -ly. For maths we are looking a quick recall of number facts, and for French today we are going to learn numbers 1-10.
Passez une bonne journee!
This week, your spelling focus is the suffixes -less and -ly.
The Suffix -less
The suffix –less usually means there is less of something.
These words all end in the suffix –less and the spelling of the root word has not changed...
Can you air write the suffix ‘-less’ with your finger?
Using your finger, can you write the suffix ‘-less’ on the back of your hand?
The Suffix -ly
The suffix –ly usually describes how something is done or how something happens.
These words all end in the suffix –ly and the spelling of the root word has not changed...
Can you air write the suffix ‘-ly’ with your finger?
Can you write the suffix ‘-ly’ with your finger on your table or the carpet?
The root word doesn't always stay the same. To add a suffix to a word of more than one syllable ending in –y with a consonant before it, you change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add the suffix.
This happens in these words...
Using your finger, can you write the suffix ‘-less’ or ‘-ly’ on someone in your families back. Can they guess which suffix you have written?
Your spellings this week are:
Here are the activities for this week to practice these spellings. Most of these can be done printer free except the wordsearch:
For this activity, cut out and make the dice. Roll it and write a sentence with that word in it. Can you make a sentence for every word?
Which four of the spellings are not on the dice? Can you play hangman with someone else in your house with these four words?
Maths: Addition and subtraction (number facts)
For today's task, I would like you to use your number facts to answer the following questions. We should be able to just know our number facts without using our fingers or any jottings, so although there are lots of questions we should be able to get through them pretty quickly. These may seem like simple sums, but being able to answer quickly without having to work them out is vital for when we get to more complex problems.
Each sheet increases in difficulty, with the final sheet requiring a little more thought than the first two. Can you set a timer and see how quickly you can finish each sheet?
To warm up our quick recall skills, go to https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button and practice your number bonds and facts.
If you are struggling, or the first 2 have taken you a long time, please stop here. If not, here is your final challenge for today:
