Monday

Good morning Troughton Class!

I have been really impressed with the learning that has been sent to me via the class email. Do keep sending me your fantastic learning so I can keep an eye on what you are learning and help you with anything I notice you may need a bit more help with!

Here's a reminder of the email address: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

Have a lovely Monday, keep working hard, you are super stars!

Phonics

Miss Sharpe's group - I would like to join in with the live phonics lesson streaming on youtube at 9:30am (remember if you miss it - don't worry! It will be on the youtube channel for 24hrs)
You are learning set 3 sounds so make sure this is the one that you watch. You should also watch and join in with the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today. You will need some paper and a pencil to write the words on.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.

This week you are going to read a new text. This is a non-fiction text about The Great Fire of London.

Have you heard about the Great Fire of London?
What can you tell happened just from the title?
If it was a great fire, what does this tell us?

This text will be needed for the whole week so hold onto it if you print it out.

First of all read the text through carefully. It is good to read it through again to familiarise yourself with where all the information is.

For your reading activity today you are going to practise skimming and scanning through the text to find the words on your worksheet. Do any of the words appear more than once?

Skimming and scanning is a good skill to have so that when you answer questions about the text you can quickly locate the information where the answer will be.

What have you found out about The Great Fire of London?
Did anything surprise you?

Maths: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

Last week you learnt what a pictogram was and how to draw one if the picture represented 1 which you could tell from the key.

What I mean by this is when the key said: O = 1.

You then knew each O was worth one so if there was OOO you knew this was equal to 3.
Today in your maths learning you are going to be drawing pictograms but you will have to look closely at the key as today the pictures may be equal to more than 1.

The key might say:

O = 2 so if you were showing 8 you would draw: OOOO as 4 lots of 2 is 8.

Watch this video below to teach you more about how to draw a pictogram in this way.

Did you see how sometimes you have to halve the shape as if O = 2 and you only have 1 you would have to halve the circle as half of 2 is 1.

It’s a bit trickier today than last week, but you did such a great job that I am sure you will be able to get the hang of this too!

Today, we have 2 learning videos as the first one is doing it with you and the second one that you will watch now is showing you more about how to do it independently before you have a go on your own on your worksheet.

Here’s the link to the second video:

Remember to check the key as the pictures may be worth 2, 5 or 10.

If you need half of the amount you might need to split the shape in half.

I’m looking forward to seeing how you get on as I was really impressed last week!

Maths: Blue group

We are going to keep on thinking about numbers to 20 this week.

Today we are going to compare and order three numbers.

We still need to use the language of comparing we used last week like greater, less, compare, more and fewer.

We will also use the word compare. This is when we look at two or more things to see what is similar and what is different about them.

When we compare, we want to see which number is greater and which number is smaller. So, we will look at a number’s value. That is how much it is worth.

I would like you to watch the video and then complete the independent activity mentioned on the video. Don’t forget to try the quiz after the video to test your learning.

Writing: Grammar

Today we are going to learn some more about verbs.  Can you remember what a verb is?

A verb is a ‘doing word’. Today we are going to look at past tense verbs, these tell us what people, animals and things did.
To make the past tense, we usually add
ed or d to the verb family name.

Look at these examples:
I comb
ed my hair.                           I washed my face.
I walk
ed to the door.                      I picked up my dog.

If the words we are changing to the past tense already end in an e, then we just add d to the end!
I bake
d a cake.                               I saved my pocket money.
I smile
d at my friend.                     I waved goodbye.

Another way to make past tense is like this:

 Past tense of the verb to be + verb family name + ing I was sing ing I was singing. You were point ing You were pointing. He was help ing He was helping. She was laugh ing She was laughing. It was rain ing It was raining. We were jump ing We were jumping. You were shout ing You were shouting. They were fight ing They were fighting.

Watch this video which will teach you about present and past tense verbs to help you understand how they change.

Now you have an activity to complete to show what you have learnt.

Writing: Grammar Blue group

Today we are going to practise using the alphabet.
First of all listen to the alphabet song below to learn the alphabet using letter names.

Watch it for a second time and this time try to join in.

Look at this alphabet mat:

Can you say all of the letter sounds? Start at ‘a’ and say the letter sounds.

For your learning today, you are going to fill in the missing letters from the alphabet and add the first letter to a word.

Science

This week in our Science learning we are moving on to learn about materials.

Do you know what a material is?

A material is what something is made from.

Here are some examples of some materials and their properties, you may remember these from your DT learning.

Today you are going to watch and join in with the Oak Academy Science lesson with Miss Harris. She is going to teach you what a scientist is, what materials are and some properties of materials.

For this lesson you will need some paper and something to write with.

Story Time

Each day I will try to add a story or part of a story for you to listen to. Let me know how you felt about the different stories.

Did you enjoy it?

Was it funny?

Did you have a favourite part?

Today’s story is all about a boy who didn’t like vegetables!!

I hope you enjoy hearing about Doug Lugg, boy slug!
