P3M Home Learning Activities 7.6.19

Reading

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.

Spelling

New words will be given out and put onto Spelling City for you to practise at home at the beginning of next week.

Maths

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.

These seeds are in a sunny place in the classroom.

We have made predictions about how the seeds in each of the conditions will grow. We are looking forward to finding out the results next week.

P3M Reflective Friday 24.05.19

This week in P3M:

We have been working on our skills in reading for information.

We read texts about ladybirds and answered questions. Next week, we are going to add headings and sub-headings.

We read information about Tchaikovsky and his music and tried to put statements into categories or sub-headings.

We were learning new spelling words today. These are on Spelling City.

In maths, we have been practising our 3 and 4 times tables and trying to recall the facts a little faster.

We learned how to use ’empty number lines’ to subtract. We found this fun but it was a bit tricky to get used to at first.

In science, we discovered what plants need to grow and be healthy.

In PE, we began developing our skills in tennis. We will continue with this over the coming weeks.

We hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Mrs Bailey, Mrs Munro and P3M

Reading

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.

Spelling

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.

Maths

Explain to someone at home how to add numbers together using an empty number line as a strategy.

Music

We have been listening to Tchaikovsky’s Russian Dance (Trepak) this week and will be comparing this with Waltz of the Flowers over 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.
