Panda Class Home Learning Tuesday 23rd February

Hi Pandas,

I was pleased to see the Phonics was back online this morning; they are continuing with Home Learning lessons, so that’s great.  Keep at it, they are such a wonderful resource to be able to access.


Year 1.  Continue with measuring with work sheet number 2 ‘Measuring Length 2’.  Yesterday’s work raised some interesting questions about non-standard units of measurement, and how, if the method of measuring is different, then even though two items may measure 4 units long – if the measurement method changes then they may not be the same length. See questions 2 and 3 from Monday’s work to check. It raised a lot of discussion in school – even with 2 children!


Reception – How did the Home Measuring Challenge go?

More measuring today. See how you get on comparing height.


English – All Pandas

Have a look through the story of The Dot again 

Find the list of emotions from yesterday’s work – Can you find new words that mean the same as the ones you chose yesterday? For example, here in class, we said that at the beginning Vishti was/looked  angry – another word for angry is cross.

Angry – Cross, and so on…

Then can you think of a colour that matches that emotion? I think we may choose red for the start where she seems angry. You could colour over the words in colours of your choice, to match the emotions.


Have a go at this feelings worksheet.



Continue with your spellings.  See yesterday’s spelling booklet.

Here is a link to having opportunities to practice your handwriting.


History – All Pandas

We are looking at the life of Neil Armstrong, this half term.  Key question::  Was Neil Armstrong an explorer, like Christopher Columbus?  Discuss what you think.

Watch the PowerPoint and then complete the time line.  There are a few time line formats to choose from, use the one that suits your child. Reception, you may want to use the pictures, to order the events of his life. Year 1 you may want to choose to do some writing – aim high!  Would you like to be an astronaut?

How are you getting on with reading?  There are lots of books available online and I can put new books in the reception area for those of you who pass by school. Just let me know, and I can sort some out.

Enjoy this story, one of my favourites.. Whatever next? by Jill Murphy 

Have a great Tuesday,

Mandy Turner
