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

This week we are going to be learning about different graphs and tables. Today we will be looking closely at tally charts.

Tally charts are used to collect data quickly and in an easy way.

Each tally group is worth 5 so you can then count in multiples of 5s.

You draw a line to represent 1 like this | when you want to make a group of 5 you draw 4 lines like this |||| then strike a line through on the 5th one ||||
I will show you some different numbers represented by tallys:

|||| |||| = 10 (for this you would count in 5s: 5, 10)

|||| ||| = 8 (for this you would count the group of 5 then continue in 1s: 5, 6, 7, 8)

|||| |||| ||| = 13 (for this you would count the groups in 5s then count the ones: 5, 10, 11, 12, 13)

Complete the first worksheet for all as a practise, then move onto your group’s worksheet.

## Maths: Blue group

This week we are going to be learning about time. To start with let’s recall the days of the week with this song:

## Literacy: Blue and Red groups

Adjectives can have an opposite. Opposites are pairs of words that have different meanings. Doing words (verbs can have opposites too) Watch the opposites song to help you with this. How many opposites do you know?

When we add un before a word it can make the opposite word.

un + describing word = opposite

un + lucky = unlucky

un + fold = unfold

Today we are going to practise using un to write some opposites.

## Science

Last week we looked at different animal groups. Can you remember them?

There were mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds and fish.

Today we are going to look at some special mammals called marsupials. Many marsupials live in Australia and you have been looking at Australia in Geography.

First, I would like you to read the power point about Australian animals. It tells you about 8 different animals that you may find in Australia. I would like you to sort the animals into marsupials and not marsupials.

After you have done this, I would like you to watch the video explaining some more about marsupials. Then I would like you to write 3 facts you have found out about marsupials. Good Luck!
