Please complete the reading assigned to your group and ask someone at home to ask you questions about what you have read to help with your understanding.
New words will be given out and put onto Spelling City for you to practise at home at the beginning of next week.
We have been working on identifying half on a number line and this was something we found quite tricky. Practise counting in halves with someone at home and see if you can draw a number line from 0-10 showing 0, 1/2, 1 11/2, 2, 21/2 etc. For an additional challenge, show quarters on the number line too.
You could also try the following links to help you practise what we have been doing in class.
Choose an activity from the grid you took home this week. Our recent maths learning has included times tables, place value and partitioning (splitting) numbers, sequencing numbers and adding and subtracting using empty number lines.
Tell someone at home what you have learned about plants this week. Was there anything that surprised you?
Please ensure you have completed the reading assigned to your group.
We have been working on our skills in reading for a specific purpose / to find out specific information. You could practise this at home using newspapers, magazines, books or internet sites (as long as an adult says it’s OK and can help you). You can research any topic you are interested in or ask someone to give you a topic or a question. Try to write down the information you find out using headings and / or bullet points.
On Tuesday, we will repeat the spelling test we did back in March. Keep practising your common words and focus on those you did not spell correctly last time (highlighted on your sheet). Remember to refer to the grid that was sent out last week with lots of fun spelling activities to help you.
Explain to someone at home how to add numbers together using an empty number line as a strategy.
Have a look at this clip if you need a bit of help:
We have been listening to Tchaikovsky’s Russian Dance (Trepak) this week and will be comparing this with Waltz of the Flowersover the coming weeks. Listen to some other music composed by Tchaikovsky, such as pieces from Swan Lake or Sleeping Beauty. You might like to draw a picture of what you imagine is happening or perhaps you could make up a dance.
Make sure you complete the reading agreed for your group. As discussed with Mrs Munro earlier this week, it’s ‘Health Week’ next week and therefore we will not be issuing new reading books. New reading books will be issued the following week.
Keep working on your common words. Perhaps you could try one of the activities on the spelling sheet / grid you took home today.
Keep practising your times table facts. We are working on the 2,3,4,5 and 10 times tables but challenge yourself further if you feel you can recall the facts of these tables quickly. Follow this link to play a game to help you:
