## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and found some fun things to do! It's time for a new week of learning... are you ready?
Please keep sending me pictures of your super learning at home and to tell me what you have been up to, as I love hearing from you!

Last week, I worked you really hard in reading! I gave you lots of different activities to complete! I won't be using those activities this week, but they may reappear in a few weeks!
Today I would like you to choose a story to read. I want you to focus on using expression (if it is a fiction text) and using the punctuation. Are you making appropriate pauses when there is a comma or full stop?
If you have exhausted all of the books you have at home remember there is a document uploaded which will tell you how to access books online. I will post it below.

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

This week we are moving on to geometry. We will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes.

First take a look at the power point about 2D shapes.

Your job today is to name the 2D shapes and count the number of sides.

When you have finished have a go at the “what shape am I?” power point, unfortunately this doesn’t work as a PDF.

## Maths: Blue group

Today you are going to be learning about doubles, these will help you when we are learning about dividing and sharing later on this week.

I have attached a power point about doubles using ladybirds, see if you can double numbers accurately.

Grammar – Verbs

Verbs are doing words.

Past tense verbs tell us what people, animals and things did.

To make the past tense, we usually add ed or d to the verb.

I combed my hair.     I washed my face.     I walked to the door.

Another way to make the past tense is to use the verb “to be” with the verb family name. This is called the past progressive tense.

I was singing.      You were pointing.     He was helping.

First, I would like you to underline the past tense verbs. Then complete the table with the past tense and the past progressive tense.

Mr and Mrs Mop are brilliant cleaners. They sweep, dust, scrub and tidy. But they have a problem. They can't buy any more of their favourite cloths for wiping up water and any other liquids that have been spilled. There are some other kinds of cloths available, but they don't know which ones to buy. What are they going to do?

Mr and Mrs Mop need to find a new material to mop up water.

What is the best material to do this?

Can you help them choose?
