Maths:

L.O: to read weighing scales

For our lesson today we will be continuing to read weighing scales as we have been doing this week. 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. You can write the more numbers around the scale to help you once you have worked out how much it is going up in. 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.

English:

L.O: to use a rich and varied vocabulary

To begin English today, first reread the story, ‘A Tale of Two Robots’ to remind yourself of what happened.

Look at the first slide and think back to when we were looking at playscripts and the discussions that we had about who was the most powerful out of Fib and Lucy. Now look at each part of the story on the slides and decide which character is the most powerful at that moment. Who is the most powerful? Why?

Look at the picture on the next slide of Callum and his messy room. Your task today is to write a paragraph to describe the picture, really exaggerating about how messy Callum’s room is. I want these rooms to sound disgusting e.g. the mouldy banana skin slowly rotted on the pink, dusty carpet. You can also include how the characters might be feeling.

Prompts:

Callum’s room was not just a mess, it was…

Callum’s room is as messy as …

When mum entered the room she was …

Handwriting:

L.O: to form letters

Think carefully about how to form the letter ‘o’. Practise writing the double letters in the words and sentences on the worksheet or by copying this out on paper. After, make up your own sentences containing some of the words.

Remember to really concentrate and use your neatest handwriting!

Science:

L.O: to identify uses of rocks

Today is our first lesson in our new science topic of looking at rocks, soils and fossils.

Look at the slides and think about these questions: What is a rock? Where do rocks come from? See which rocks you can spot.

As you look through the slides you will see that there are lots of different types of rock and that they can be used for many different things. Lots of naturally occurring rocks can be used as they are. Some other materials that look like rocks (e.g. bricks and concrete slabs) are actually man-made.

For your activity, you need to sort the pictures into natural rocks and man-made rocks. If you get stuck, you can use the slides to help you. At the bottom of the sheet, name five uses of naturally occurring rocks.

PSHE:

Mrs Entwistle has set you some PSHE work for this week.

This half term in PSHE the puzzle piece is Dreams and Goals. We will be thinking about what goals we have and how we can achieve them. What goals have we already achieved and how did you do it? Can you help others to achieve their Dreams and Goals ? How can you encourage someone else to keep going to reach their goal?

Look at all the goals you’ve achieved already.
