# Friday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you've had a good week so far and are ready for our last day of learning this week. Next week is half term so there won't be any work online. I hope you get up to lots of nice things. Here's a reminder of the email address that you can send me pictures of your work on or to just say hello:
troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

Today I would like you to read your favourite story.  Can you use expression while you read?

## Maths: Red, Orange, Yellow & Green groups

Today I want you to compare, describe and solve practical problems for mass and weight. You will need to think carefully about what you already know about how much things weigh, this means how heavy something is.

Choose: Level 2 – ordering – smallest first

Or

Level 2 – ordering – largest first

Choose the time you feel most comfortable with and put your ordering skills to the test!

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to be learning about weight.

In the class we use scales to measure objects. If something is heavy the sales drop down. If something is light the scales rise. It is similar when you go on a see-saw with your mom or dad. They go to the floor and you go in the air because you are lighter. Watch the video to see this.

You have completed some super learning this week, I thought it would be nice for us to go outside and put our learning to the test. I have attached a scavenger hunt for you to complete this weekend.

## Literacy

Did you enjoy finding out about spiders?  I hope you kept all your facts safe because now you are going to use them.

I would like you to think of a way of showing off or displaying this information.

Today I am going to let you decide how you would like to do this.

Here are a few ideas.

Make a colourful poster with pictures / photographs with sentences.

Make a model or art work of a spider and attach some of the facts. (e.g. lift the flap)

Make a spider hanging mobile displaying spider facts.

Make a game where people find out about spiders.

Make fact cards about spiders. (like Top Trumps)

Make a video. Perhaps you could be a reporter like David Attenborough!

You might be able to think of another way. What is important, is you decide!

Have fun with it and I look forward to seeing what you have all done.

## Music

In our last music lesson we learnt about rhythm. This week we are going to be learning about Pitch.

Pitch is the word we use to describe how low or high a sound is. Here is Meg to show us about following a rhythm.

Can you ask the people in your households to make a high pitch? Who can make the highest pitch sound? Now ask them to make a low pitch? Who can make the lowest pitch sound?

## P.E

Our PE lesson today is a bit different; we’ve had some lovely weather so I think it would be nice for us to get out and play some bat and ball games. It doesn’t matter what type of bat you have and if you don’t have a bat you could use your hand. Follow the worksheet below for your PE lesson.

The link to Joe Wicks website is below if you would like to give it a go. We look forward to seeing your pictures of your ball games.
