Reading

For your reading today Miss Meakin has found some super books for you to read. The first one is a non-fiction book about whales and the songs that they sing: https://freekidsbooks.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/have-you-ever-heard-a-whale-sing-Pratham-FKB.pdf

The second book is a fiction book. It is a story about an adventure some children end up having when playing hide and seek: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2081/8163/files/001-HIDE-AND-SEEK-Free-Childrens-Book-By-Monkey-Pen.pdf?v=1589846897

I hope you enjoy reading them!

Maths: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

This week we are continuing our geometry learning. For the next 2 days we will continue looking at 2D and 3D shapes.

For you learning today you will be recognising and identifying 2D shapes on the surfaces of 3D shapes.

Here is a reminder of 2D shapes and their names:

When you are finding 2S shapes on the surfaces of 3D shapes, you need to look at the faces. What shapes can you see?

Take a look at this example:

What 2D shape is the arrow pointing at?
A circle!

Work through your worksheets and see if you can identify 2D shapes on the surfaces of 3D shapes.

Maths: Blue group

This week we are going to be learning about fractions. Today we are going to be learning about half, half looks like this: ½ . This means there are 2 equal parts. Watch the clip below to see how we find ½ of a shape.

Now click on the worksheet to put your learning to the test.

Literacy: Blue and Red groups

We are going to revise what we know about past tense verbs.

Verbs are doing words. They tell us what people, animals and things do.

chew    play    jump

Verbs can tell us what people, animals and things did.

chewed    played    jumped

We add ed to the verb family name.

Watch the video to find out about verbs

Now try the activity. You have to read the verbs (doing words) and sort them into past tense (things that have happened) and present tense (things that are happening now) You can either cut out the verbs and stick them under the correct heading or write the verbs under the correct heading.

Literacy: Orange, Yellow and Green groups

We already know that an adjective is a describing word. They tell us more about people, animals, places and things.

Adjectives can describe the difference between two things.

an old car       an older car

Adjectives can describe the difference between three or more things.

an old car     an older car     the oldest car

Words like oldest are superlative adjectives.

Try the worksheet. Write the superlative adjective to finish each sentence.

When you have done that see if you can sort the words into adjectives, comparative adjectives (end in er) and superlative adjectives. (end in est)

For example; The hill is the ______ of them all.

The hill is the highest of them all.

Science

At the start of our topic “Fire and Ice” we looked at different animals. We found out that there
were different groups of animals.
Today we are going to revise our knowledge on this.
I would like you to watch some short films about each of the different animal groups. Watch the
films about mammals, amphibians, birds, fish and reptiles.

I have also attached a power point about the different animal groups for you to look at too.
When you have finished, I would like you to look at the different groups of animals and say what the
animal has in common. (What is the same about them?)
