Friday

Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you have had a good week and have been completing lots of our learning. Thank you to all of you who have emailed your learning to me. I have really enjoyed seeing all of your super work. Today is the last set of work that will be put up for 2 weeks as it would have been the Easter holidays after today! So spend the time relaxing and having fun at home!

Maths: Green, Yellow, Orange & Red groups

Today you will having a go at recognising and using even and odd numbers.

Something to remember about even numbers is they CAN be shared equally between 2. Odd numbers CANNOT be shared equally between 2.
Even numbers always end in: 0, 2, 4, 6 & 8
Odd numbers always end in: 1, 3, 5, 7 & 9
Example: If I was trying to work out if 5 was odd or even, I would try and share it between 2 groups. If I did this i would have one group of 3 and one of 2 which is not equal, so I would know it was an odd number as it does not share equally between 2!

Make sure you choose the correct worksheet for your group.

Maths: Blue group

Today you will be having a go at solving subtraction word problems. You can use a number line again to help you count backwards, or you can count backwards in your head. Make sure you read the questions carefully to find the most important parts first!

Literacy/Writing: All groups

Today I would like you to write a book review. You can choose whether you think back to last week's story: Meerkat Mail or you use this week's story: Giraffes can't dance. A book review is used to give your opinion on a book. It could be that you really enjoyed the story or that you didn't really like it. A book review lets you share your opinion. You might want to listen to both stories again so I will post the links here:
Meerkat Mail
Giraffes can't dance
I will put 2 example book reviews below to give you an idea of how you could set yours out.
Try and remember capital letters, full stops, adjectives to describe and your neatest handwriting!

For your science learning today, I would like you to think about what will happen to a slice of bread when it is heated.
You will need 2 slices of bread for this experiment and something to heat the bread in, either a toaster or grill/oven!
You need to describe how the bread looks, smells, tastes, feels and sounds (when you eat it). You should draw a diagram of what the bread looks like before heating.
Then you will heat the bread up and describe again
how the bread looks, smells, tastes, feels and sounds (when you eat it). You should draw a diagram of what the bread looks like after it has been heated.

Have fun doing this!

Art: Giraffes!

I thought it would be a good idea to create a giraffe picture seeing as our story was all about Gerald the giraffe this week!
Two options today, you could either create a hand print giraffe (if you have paints at home) or you could draw a giraffe in the style of an artist called Mackenzie Thorpe.
Below I will attach two examples, you can google 'Mackenzie Thorpe giraffes' to see some more examples of his giraffe pictures!
