# Monday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to do lots of nice things!
Are you ready for a new week of learning?
I really enjoy hearing from you and seeing some of your super learning, do keep emailing our class page: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

For your reading today you have a poem called 'Minibeasts'. I'd like you to read the poem and answer the questions. I will give you the rest of the questions tomorrow!

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

As we just have 2 weeks left until the end of the year we will be recapping our Maths learning. Instead of spending a week on a Maths area we might spend just a day or a few days!

Today we will be recapping our place value knowledge.

When we look at a 2 digit number it is made up of a tens and ones digit. The first digit shows you how many tens there are and the second digit shows you how many ones there are.

Look at this example for the number 23:

2 tens is ‘twenty’ and 3 ones is ‘three’, so 23 is ‘twenty-three’.

For your main learning today you are going to practise matching numbers to the numbers written in words and writing numbers both in words and using digits.

Remember when you write numbers in words, that numbers greater than 20 have a special symbol to join the tens and ones digits. Twenty-three, it joins them as one number. If you wrote twenty three, it looks like two separate numbers.
I will include a help sheet with the different numbers in words to help you spell the numbers accurately.

You have different challenges so make sure you choose your group’s worksheet!

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to be partitioning numbers, this means we are going to break numbers apart in to tens and ones.

First look at the power point and watch how we break the numbers apart like magic!

Next look at the worksheet attached, I want you to partition the numbers apart in to tens and ones like I have done in the example.

## Literacy: Blue and Red groups

Grammar – naming words (nouns)

Naming words tell us the names of things.

We can add -er to the end of many doing words (verbs) to make new words.

The words we make by doing this are nouns and the -er bit of the word means “someone or something that does something

doing words(verb)                               naming words (noun)

paint                                                            painter

If you paint you are a painter

clean                                                          cleaner

If you clean you are a cleaner.

Look at the power point to find out more about adding the suffix -er.

Click on the worksheet to practise your learning.

## Literacy: Orange, Yellow and Green groups

Grammar – homophones

Today we are going to be looking at some confusing words. We are looking at words that sound the same but are different in spelling and what they mean.

Like see (I can see an apple on the tree.) and sea (The ship went sailing out to sea.)

Like hare ( A hare is an animal like a rabbit.) and hair (I have to comb my hair every morning.)

These words sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings.

Listen to the song. How many homophones can you spot?

Today we are going to look at the homophones to, too and two.

Two is a number.   In two days it will be my birthday.

Too can mean as well and it can mean very.  You can come too.    These books are too heavy!

We use to like this.   I am going to the park.     to eat.

Now click on the worksheet to practise using the correct to, too, two.

## Science

We have looked at how there are different animal groups. There is one more group to look at and that group of animals is the minibeasts.

First, I would like you to watch the short film to find out which animals belong to this group. When you have watched the film try the quiz.

Now see if you can name and sort the minibeasts into groups: those that have legs and those that have no legs.

When you have done that, look at the worksheet and see if you can match the minibeasts to where you might find them.

I would like you to go on a minibeast hunt in and around your garden or if you are going on a walk with a grown up perhaps you can spot minibeasts then.
