# Monday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you all had a good weekend and were able to enjoy the sunshine in your gardens or on a walk! I tried to bake some cookies this weekend but I left half of them in the oven too long so they burnt a little - oops! They were okay once I dunked them into a cup of tea (don't worry I haven't spilled tea all over my carpet at home, like I did in class!). I hope you have been doing some nice things and are ready to get back into your learning.

Just another reminder of our class email address which you can use to send work for me to look at and to say hello: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk
Thank you to all of you who have been emailing in, it has been lovely to hear from you.

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

This week we are going to revisit our 2, 5 & 10 times tables.
Today we will be focusing on our 2 times table. To get you started and ready to go I want you to join in with Bridget. Click the link and get up on your feet.

Get ready to join along with the movements! Remember your pinky when you drink your cup of tea! Don’t forget to shout the answers to Bridget’s questions towards the end!

Red and Orange: Today you will be completing some multiplication questions. You will be using repeated addition on number lines to help you.

Yellow and Green: Today I want you to complete a grid to show the repeated addition calculation or the multiplication calculation. You must also write the answer to the calculation. Use the example to help you.

## Maths: Blue group

Today you will be revisiting fractions. You are going to be looking at a half 1/2 and a quarter 1/4.
To start with you are going to look at 1/2 and find 1/2 of a shape. Attached is a power point that goes into more detail. Then you have a worksheet to complete to see how much you have learnt about finding half.

I have put the power point as a PDF file as well, as some parents have been unable to open power points.

## Literacy: All groups

Today you are going to complete some work using your alphabetical knowledge.
Can you say the alphabet? Have a go.

Watch the video below to check! Did you get it right?

Can you write the alphabet in order? Try putting in the missing letters of this alphabet.
a b ___ d e f g ___ i j k ___ m n ___ ___ ___ r s t ___ v __ x
y ___
Now can you write the alphabet using upper case letters? I will start you off.
A B C D
Today you are going to use this to help you make a bike dictionary. A dictionary is a book that has words in alphabetical order and tells you what each word means.
Look at the pictures of things to do with bikes. First put these words into alphabetical order. You can either print and cut the pictures out and stick them in the right order or draw your own pictures of the bike objects in the correct order.
When you have put the words into alphabetical order see if you can write next to each picture what the word means. You can use the internet to help you or ask a grownup.
You can do it like this:
Snake – A snake is a long, narrow reptile that has scales but no legs.
A spider is a small animal with eight legs and a body made up of two parts.
Most spiders spin a web.

## Science

Last week we learnt the difference between an object and the material it is made of e.g. the object is a chair and it is made of wood. The material is wood. There are lots of different materials: wood, metal, plastic, glass, stone and many more.

Today you are going to recognise these different materials in and around your house.
