Hello everyone, hope that you and your families are well
Here are the learning activities for today:
Today you are going to practise ordering 2-digit numerals.
Have a look at these four numerals: 12 20 18 25. We are going to put these numerals in order from smallest to largest . Look at each numeral in turn, Say it out loud, think carefully about where each numeral should go. You could use your number square to help you.
12 18 20 25
Try to put these numerals in the correct order. Write them into your jotter. You can use your number square to help you. Ask someone at home to check your ordering.
These numerals are in the range 1 to 40
22 3 19 31
2 36 13 17
29 32 12 8
26 4 19 31
These numerals are in the range 40 to 100
54 42 76 41
77 45 65 90
86 73 46 67
65 46 98 41
These numerals are in the range 1-100
54 21 36 3
98 4 21 17
73 27 19 25
38 49 87 59
Today you are going to work on naming 3-digit numbers.
Look at this number – 748 – can you say this number?
It is seven hundred and forty- eight
Try saying the following numbers out loud:
On separate pieces of paper, write out digit cards for the numbers 1 – 9. Choose three of your cards. Put them together to make a 3-digit number. For example if you chose the numbers : 3 2 and 8 you could make the 3-digit numbers:
and so on.
Use your digit cards to make and read 3-digit numbers. Ask someone at home to listen to you as you say the numbers.
Today you are going to practise using an empty number line to subtract two 2-digit numbers. Look at my example. The sum is 84 – 22.
At the RIGHT hand side, I have started with the first number- 84. I have then used the rest of the number line to subtract the second number, 22.
To subtract 22, I first need to partition(split) the number. In the example below, I have partitioned (or split) 22 into 20 and 2. I have subtracted 10 two times to subtract 20, which gives me 64. I have then subtracted 2 from 64 which gives me my final answer of 62.
Or you could subtract the 2 (from 22) first.
In your jotter, use an empty number line to try these
42 – 11
59 – 15
83 – 51
47 – 23
75 – 13
98 – 74
89 – 63
84 – 71
87 – 35
58 – 20
99 – 29
Complete an activity from the spelling grid or think of a different way to help you learn your words. The dictations this week will be a mixture of the words you have been learning since the school closures.
LIONS: The Lost Village of Skara Brae by Mick Gowar and Sarah- Jane Harknett
This book is an example of a non- fiction book. It is about something that actually happened rather than a story which someone has made up.
On page 20 is the Glossary. Have a look at this page. What do you think it is for?
Explain what a glossary is in your own words.
If we want to find a particular piece of information and we don’t want to read through the whole book, we can use the index to tell us the page that information is on.
The index for this book is on page 21, use the index to answer the following questions:
What page would you look at to find out about clothes?
What information would you find on page 15?
What page would you look at to find out about crops?
The subject of animals has lots of numbers after it, why do you think that is?
If you were going to write a non fiction book what would you choose to write it about? (choose a subject or person you find interesting). Think of a title for your book and draw the front cover.

Write a short summary of the story giving a brief outline of what happens in the book. Remember, you are not writing the whole story out, you are just explaining the main events and describing the main characters. If you prefer, you could draw a cartoon strip showing what happens and write a sentence underneath each picture.
What did you enjoy about the book? (If you didn’t enjoy it, explain why).
Jill Tomlinson, the author has written a number of books in this series, all about animals. Would you like to read any of the others? (There is a little information about them at the back of the book).
