Just before we broke up we were learning about plurals.
We know that plurals means  'more than one'
Singular  - 1  e.g Cat
Plural - more than 1  e.g Cats
When a word is plural we can add 's' or 'es' to the end of the word
  • Go onto www.phonicsplay.co.uk ( This is free during the COVID19 Pandemic)
  • On the left hand side you will see Phase 5 click it
  • Scroll down to 5d click it 
  • Look for "Adding s and es"
  • Follow slides and play the game
Search your house for different objects for example: sock  - singular    socks - Plural 
Use your purple book to write down the singular and the plural. 
See if you can spell them correctly using the spelling rules.
Good Luck!
Further Maths Support for Home Learning
The White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from Year 1-8. They will be adding five more each week for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.

Just follow these four easy steps…

  1. Click on the set of lessons for your child’s year group.
  2. Watch the video (either on your own or with your child).
  3. Find a calm space where your child can work for about 20-30 minutes.
  4. Use the video guidance to support your child as they work through a lesson.


Your First Task:

Please complete the Year 1, Week 1 learning resources on the White Rose Maths website. The link is: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/


You will be learning about:

  •  Weight

  • Measuring Mass

  • Comparing Mass

  • Capacity and Volume

  • Measuring Capacity

Once you have watched the video and completed the questions, you can check your answers with a grown up. Don’t worry if you do not have a printer, you can talk each answer through with an adult or write your answers down in your purple home learning book.
