# Monday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you enjoyed the extra long weekend! I enjoyed baking (and eating) scones and taking some walks. Are you ready for a new week of learning? I am!
Remember you can email any of your super learning to me, or email just to say hello at: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk
I would love to hear from you.

Today I would like you to choose a story that your grown up likes and take it in turns to read a page each. Ask your grown up why they like this story. Do you like it for the same reasons?

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

This week we are going to be learning about fractions. First of all I would like you to have a go at the fraction warm up. How many did you get correct today? We will look at this again at the end of the week to see if you have improved your score! Please use the power point version if you can because the PDF version has the answers on! (I know some of you cannot open power points so you might need your grown up to hide the answer from you!)

We will be learning about halves and quarters today.

First, look at the power point. It will show you some shapes split into halves and quarters. There are some questions at the end that you can have a go at.

Red/Orange – Can you say how many parts need to be each colour to show the fraction amounts? You can draw these out and colour them, or just say how many parts would be each colour.

Example:
¼ red – 1 part
1/2 blue - 2 parts

The answers are on the second sheet for you to check!

Yellow/Green - Can you say how many parts need to be each colour to show the fraction amounts? You can draw these out and colour them, or just say how many parts would be each colour.

Example:
¼ red – 1 part
1/2 blue - 2 parts

The answers are on the second sheet for you to check! Be careful though, not all of your parts are the same size! You might need to say the largest part is coloured blue…

The answers are on the second sheet for you to check!

## Maths: Blue group

A game to get your brains working this morning, you have to help the farmer collect the fruit and then answer a question about how much fruit has been collected!

For your main learning today you are going to be subtracting (taking away). Read the number sentences on the worksheet and use the number lines to count backwards to find your answer. Make sure you count carefully.

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

Today we are going to look at when we use commas in our writing. When we write a list in a sentence, we use commas. We can join the last two things in the list with and.

Here is an example: I like to read, write and draw.

Look at the power point to see how we use commas and then write the sentences using commas and one and.

## Literacy: Blue group

Last week we looked at nouns and proper nouns (special naming words)

Nouns (common nouns) are naming words. A noun tells us the name of animals, places and objects for example hen, bicycle, table.

Proper nouns are special naming words and have capital letters.

Names of people are proper nouns.           Mrs Hill

Days of the week are proper nouns.          Monday

Months of the year are proper nouns.       January

The name of places are proper nouns.       Walsall

Months of the year are special naming words so they need capital letters. Today I would like you to write the months of the year using a capital letter. When you have done that, I would like you to answer the questions. Don’t forget your capital letters!

Can you learn the months of the year and the order they come in? Here is a song to help you.

## Science

Last week we looked at different materials and their properties.

This week we are going to see how these properties help us to decide which material is best for the job.

Watch the video to find out how materials have different properties that make them useful for different jobs.

After you have watched the video, test yourself with the quiz.

Can you choose the right material for the job?
