Thursday 23rd April

Fact of the day:

An Ostrich's eye is bigger than it's brain!!

PE

Start your day off with some exercise. Choose either to follow the Joe Wicks live workout or a yoga routine from the Cosmic Kids Yoga link!

Reading for at least 20 minutes today, independently or to an adult. Don't forget, you can still quiz on books at home!

Maths

Today we are going to be ordering fractions and thinking about which ones are smaller and which are bigger. You will be able to use the fraction wall to help you.

Activity 1:

Set up your fraction wall in front of you.

Have a look at it - which fraction is the smallest on your fraction wall? (Hint: you are looking for the strip that has the smallest parts)

Click below for the answer to see if you are right!

If one-tenth is the smallest on our fraction wall, which fraction is the BIGGEST on our fraction wall?

So, when our numerator (top number) is 1, the BIGGER the denominator (bottom number), the SMALLER the fraction is!

Which means...

The SMALLER the denominator, the BIGGER the fraction is!

This is because:

When you split your whole, or your strip, into more and more pieces, each piece is going to be smaller; so this means the fraction is smaller.

When you don't split your strip into that many pieces, they are going to be bigger.

Activity 2:

Look at the fractions below.

Put them in order from the smallest to the biggest on a number line in your purple book.

Activity 3:

Have a go at the questions on the worksheet below. Please try to answer questions 1 to 4 in your purple books.

English

Activity 1:

Read back through your diary entry Check that it makes sense and make sure there are no missing words in your sentences.

See if you have ticked off all the things on the success criteria we have been using this week:

• Capital letters, full stops and finger spaces
• Conjunctions (and, but, so, because, which)
• Similes
• Alliteration
• Prepositions (behind, next to, above, below)
• Time connectives (first, last, next, then, after that, suddenly, finally)

If there is something you have not included, try to add that in now.

Activity 2:

We are now going to turn our attention back to prepositions. Please complete the following in your purple books:

Extension:

This can be completed in your purple books.

RE

Our new topic in RE is Pentecost.

Activity 1:

In your purple books, I would like you to answer the following questions: What is Pentecost?

You will have talked about Pentecost in Year 2, during assemblies and in Church. If you need a reminder, look at the following document:

Activity 2:

Now imagine you were one of the people who were there when the Holy Spirit came. Write a few sentences to describe how you think you would have felt when this happened.

Activity 3:

Look at the following pictures:

These pictures show Pentecost being represented in a variety of ways. There are painting, photographs and stained glass windows. I would like you to think about the way they have been represented.

In your books, write a few sentences to explain:

1. Which picture do you like best and why?
2. How do these all represent Pentecost? (You might need to look at the document above to link these to Pentecost)
