L.O: to read weighing scales in kilograms


For our lesson today we will be continuing to read weighing scales, but this time also using kilograms. Begin by looking at the last kilogram the arrow passed and then work out which each increment is on the scale to find the grams.  As some of the scales are unclear, I have typed these next to them to help you.


To start with answer your ‘In Focus’ question which is on the first page. As we would normally discuss this with our partners at school, see if there is an adult or older brother or sister to talk to about it. Please use the box on this page record your answer and methods.


Next look at the ‘Guided Practice’ which shows you some of the different style questions. I have left the answers on the worksheet so you can see the setting out and how to go about answering these types of questions.


Now it is your turn! Have a go at the ‘Independent Practice’ which is a copy of the worksheet that you would have completed in your MNP workbooks at school.


If you feel up for it, have a go at the challenge! Good luck!


Please could you email this piece of work to me.


L.O: to create similes


First read the story ‘A Tale of Two Robots’. Was any of your inferences you made in yesterdays remote learning correct?


Read the words on the slide and their definitions, try to think of some sentences with these words included. Use the examples to help you.


For the main activity we will be concentrating on similes. A simile describes something by comparing it to something else. Look at the next slide which highlights some similes that were in the story such as ‘panic struck Callum like a thunderbolt’.


On the worksheet, read the example simile and then come up with your own version. Get creative!

L.O: to investigate past tense suffixes


Follow the link to an online Oak National Academy spelling lesson with Miss Madden. She goes through some important key vocabulary and sounds to begin with. She then shows you some examples of how to turn verbs into the past tense and the rules that you need to remember. Remember to pause the video when she asks you to so you can write out the answers.


L.O: to consider Christian beliefs about God


For R.E today we will be considering four Christian ideas: is God love? Is God ‘our Father’? Is God light? Is God the Creator?


For our work today you will write an explanation, answering each of these questions. For each paragraph think about the questions below and you can also include anything else that you would like to.


God as love. Think about the people in your lives who you love and who love you. How do you know that someone loves you? How does it make you feel? How do people act and what do they do? Can we see love? How do we know it is there?


God as father. How do parents care for their babies? Think about the different things that a baby needs. Christians believe that God looks after them like a loving father (or parent). In the Lord’s Prayer, it starts ‘Our Father, who lives in heaven…’.


God as light. Candles are used for lots of different things birthday cakes, power cuts, and so on. Think about them shining in the dark. People going to church often light candles and candles are used in church services.


God as creator. Think about some of the wonders of the world outside. Think about Christian belief that God has given people the job of stewards (carers) of the earth.


L.O: to investigate the use of Aboriginal art


This term our theme is ‘Let’s Move’. As part of this in art we will be studying Aboriginal journey art.


Go through the slides, thinking about what a symbol is and coming up with a definition. Then carefully read the about who the Aborigines are and how nature and art is important to them.


Look at some of the symbols that are used in Aboriginal art and think about any symbols we could use for the things we see around us every day.


Choose some of these words to create symbols: car, house, bird, tree, lamp post, waterfall, bridge, bike, cat, TV, bus, flower, phone, plane, cloud, bottle, football, bed, river, mountain, shoe.
