Welcome to your home learning for Monday 20th April 2020!
Here you will find your tasks for the day. If you have any worries or concerns, you know where to find me.
Fact of the day:
Your eyes produce a teaspoon of tears every hour.
Joke of the day:
Q: What did the tree say to the wind?
A: Leaf me alone!
Have a go at joining Joe Wickes this morning, to start off the week with a bit of energy and movement!
This week we are looking at the book, ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. You will need to listen to this book, to aid your writing this week. Please read along to the first chapter with me. It might be a nice idea to draw pictures as you listen, like we did in class while listening to the Explorer. Think about these questions, but please don’t write down your answers!
1) What does the following sentence mean? ‘The wind sang through his iron fingers.’
2) Why were his eyes shining different colours?
3) How did the seagull spot the Iron Man’s hand and eye?
4) Where was the Iron Man’s missing ear?
5) Why do you think the seagulls were circling over the Iron Man as he walked into the sea?
Today we are recapping our understanding of suffixes. Remember these are the last few letters added onto a root word to change its meaning. Have a look at the video to help:
Today, your spellings are:
Please can your practise these spellings by drawing them in the shape of spirals. You might want to draw more than one so your page is full of spiral spellings!
Today we are looking at making a whole. Remember a whole number is where the numerator and denominator is the same. It would mean that you would have exactly one chocolate bar! I have used the fluency (green), reasoning (amber) and problem solving (red) questions that we are used to, so complete as much as you can. If you fly through, there is a challenge.
This half term, our topic is Life Changers! I’m talking about the people who have had a big influence on our lives. We are going to start off our learning by finding out about some key inventions from Victorian times. Your job is to put the appliances in chronological order. You can draw it out, it does not need to be printed. Use the powerpoint to help you.
Independent reading:Please make sure you are reading for 25 minutes. If you can, write down what you think about it in your reading log and try to quiz when you can.
