We are using Oak Academy for our English lessons.
Click on the link to see the day’s video lesson. You will need a pencil/pen and paper to write on. This week we are continuing to use the text How Coyote Brought Fire to the Earth and learning to write a descriptive text.
Maths - Money
Click on the links for daily White Rose maths videos and activities. You can either print the pages (if you have access to a printer), screen shot the page and edit as a photo or simply write your answers on a piece of paper. The answer page has also been shared but please don't look at this until you have completed the lesson!
Other ways to learn about money - Add up amounts of coins that are available at home. Set up a shop, make price labels for toys or food items and 'sell' them to family members using real coins. Check that they have given you the correct amount of money. Just remember to give it back when you have finished playing!
There are also some on-line money games available on these links...
