Wednesday 25th March Y1 & Y2


Watch a CBeebies Bedtime story – tell your adult what your favourite part of the story was and why?

OR listen to David Walliams



Y1 – have a go at writing these words and adding the sound buttons.

play     snail     stool     must     truck     jump     spray      rain     training    clay   


Then play a phonics game…


Y2 – Write the words from memory…

*any* many* clothes* water* pretty* Christmas* beautiful* busy* poor* kind*



Using for favourite story can you create new character? This could be a person, an animal or creature. You could draw a picture of the new character and label it or write a short description using adjectives and similes.   Below are some examples of character descriptions...

It wasn’t a human. It couldn’t be. It was four times as tall as the tallest human. It was so tall its head was higher than the upstairs windows of the houses. Sophie opened her mouth to scream, but no sound came out. Her throat, like her whole body, was frozen with fright.

   In the moonlight, Sophie caught a glimpse of an enormous long pale wrinkly face with the most enormous ears. The nose was as sharp as a knife, and above there were two bright flashing eyes, and the eyes were staring straight at Sophie. There was a fierce and devilish look about them.

Y1 share groups of objects in quarters. Investigate whether we can share 8 equally between 4? Can we share 9?

Y2 Use concrete resources (such as toys, pegs, food) or draw pictures (a bar model) to find the answers to…

Half of 10. Half of 12. Half of 50.

Quarter of 16. Quarter of 28. Quarter of 40.

2 quarters and 3 quarters of 12. 2 quarters and 3 quarters of 24. 2 quarters and 3 quarters 40.



Y2 - we have been learning about materials and different states of matter (solid, liquid and gas). Here is a link if you want to learn more about this topic (and there's a quiz!)

Here is a simple experiment you can try at home...

Gases can dissolve in a liquid, as this example shows. But they won't stay there if you release the pressure that holds them. Try this science project on states of matter, and see what happens.

What You'll Need:

Step 1: (Carefully) Open a bottle of fizzy pop, and put it on a table.

Step 2: Immediately put the end of a balloon over the neck of the bottle. Pull the balloon's down over the bottle so that it fits tightly.

Step 3: Check on the balloon about every 10 minutes for any changes.

Don't forget to make a prediction about what you think might happen. You could draw your findings or take photographs at each 10 minute interval. 


If you don't have the resources needed here's a great video to watch of one of the experiments we did in class using a rubber glove...

You could create or draw a picture like below to show the particles in the different states of matter and make a list of the various examples you can find around your home and garden.

Fizzy pop is carbonated. This means that carbon dioxide gas has been dissolved in the liquid under high pressure.

Opening the bottle releases the pressure, and the carbon dioxide gas begins to escape from the liquid. The balloon trapped the carbon dioxide gas as it left the bottle, and then the gas inflated the balloon.
