Maths

Mrs Bennett’s

Chapter 9 Lesson 2

LO: To be able to solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of measurements.

Text Book

**Bar modelling is when two equally-sized bars shows equal amount.**

'A piece of blue paper represents 10 cm of ribbon and the red is half of that. There is something wrong with the lengths of the strips of paper!'  Discuss this problem.  Are you able to figure out that the red paper should be half the length of the blue? If you put the pieces of paper one above the other, you can see the numbers. What is meant by this? Look at the strips of paper, the red strip is half the length of the blue one. What these numbers could be (e.g. 5 and 10, 20 and 40, 3 and 6).  What else do you notice? Look at the empty space where the red paper ends but the blue continues. Does this represent anything (the difference between the two and what is identical about the two)? Discuss this. This is a key concept in bar modelling – that two equally-sized bars are equal in amount. Have a go at drawing the pieces of paper.

Read the In Focus question.  This question is similar to the one just looked at but with different numbers. Have a go at drawing a bar model to show the lengths of the red and blue ribbons. Follow the Let's Learn example to help.

Have a go at a couple of the Guided Practice questions, draw bar models to help understand and work out the answers.

Have a go at the word problems, use bar models to help work out the questions.  There is no need to print out the sheets.  You can write your answers on sheets of paper, but please number your questions and answers, showing your working out.

LO: To be able to recognise 2D shapes in everyday environments.

To start, look at the In Focus task.  Look at the picture, what shapes can you see? Can you see 2D and 3D shapes? Search around your house, can you find any 2D or 3D shapes?

Next look at the work book activity.  Please send this work in.

Using a ruler, match the shapes and words correctly. Next, look at the picture and count the shapes you can see, colouring in the correct shape in the correct colour.  Finally, colour the everyday shape the correct colour and trace the around the shape in each box, writing their shape name underneath.

There is no need to print off the sheets.  These can be edited on-line and saved.  Your saved copy can then be emailed to the class email.

LO: To be able to recognise 4 common 3D shapes.

To start, look at the In Focus task.  Look at the picture, what shapes can you see? Can you see 2D and 3D shapes? Search around your house, can you find any 2D or 3D shapes?

Unit 5 Lesson 15

LO: to develop awareness of writing for a specific purpose and audience.

LO: to develop awareness of apostrophes to mark contraction.

LO: to develop awareness of formal and informal language

Mrs Malone’s group

1. Check your sounds, in and out of order.
2. Write out the given words and learn how to spell them.
3. Dictation activity.  Get an adult/another person to continually read the given sentences. You must then write the sentences down, without looking just listening.  Remember all the correct punctuation for each sentence.

Poetry

Read along with the poet, James Carter, and see if you can add any expression.

Listen to it a few times and then see if you can join in reciting it.  Can you add expression, actions and can you perform it to an audience and without any help?

There is no need to send anything in but if you would like to send in a performance of the poem then I would love to see it!

Handwriting

Lesson 7

Have a go at the words on the handwriting sheet.

There is no need to print out the sheet.  Just copy each word.  Can you put these words into a sentence?

PE

As it’s a Tuesday it’s PE day! Mr Ashby would like you to have a go at these challenges, there are 6 to choose from. You will need to use your skills of balance, speed, agility and co-ordination.

‘If you can take a picture of you doing the activities, I would love to see them!’

Click the link to see which exercises Mr Ashby would like you to do.

PSHE

Healthy Me

LO: To talk about what being healthy means.

Today we will start a new topic called Healthy Me.

Mrs Entwistle would like you to talk to your adult about what you think keeping healthy means, and what we need to do to keep healthy. She would also like you to think about things that could affect your health such as not sleeping properly or eating a balanced diet.  You could draw a picture to explain how what you have chosen can affect your health.

There is a powerpoint to help with prompts, feel free to use this but you don't need to.

There are 3 worksheets, choose which one you would like to complete (all three if you would like!) or make up your own!
