25.3.20 – Daily Challenges

Good morning,

Today’s Arithmetic Challenge – answer as many questions as you can in 3 minutes. Today’s questions require your number bond knowledge to 10 and 20. You could watch the number pairs video first to recap:

Good luck!

4 + __ = 10

__ + 3 = 10

10 – 8 = ___

__ – 5 = 5

20 – 3 = ___

16 + 4 = ____

20 – 9 = ____

17 + ___ = 20

Don’t forget you can also use the website Hit the Button to practise your number bonds and doubling skills: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button



Accessing the Reading Eggs Library

Hello all,

I’ve had some questions about how to access the reading eggs library, so I thought I would do a blog post about it.

The library is accessed by Reading Eggspress not Reading Eggs. Children may need some support accessing this the first time as we don’t often use Eggspress.

Once you click on Reading Eggspress you will see this screen –

Your screen may show that you have some assignments to complete – these are books that I have set from the library.
In the library, click ‘find a book’ and you can access loads of books, fiction and non-fiction of varying levels.
Use the ‘dragable’ numbers next to ‘reading age’ to find age appropriate texts.

Let me know what books you find and what you enjoy in the comments below or send a picture to my email address – grace.amblin@allertonceprimary.com

Happy reading,
Mrs Amblin

Managing Distractions

This week we launched our new focus learning behaviour – MANAGING DISTRACTIONS.

Being able to focus and ignore distractions around you is a really important behaviour to master. This will be our focus behaviour this half term and our learners of the week will be chosen with this in mind.

So today we began to think about how we can manage our distractions and what this looks like. We set a timer for 7 minutes and had 7 minute focused sketching time, then a break. This was a real exercise in discipline and I was very impressed!
