Reciprocal Reading

 

This half term, we are going to be focussing our reading and writing around a new book, ‘The Borrowers’ by Mary Norton. Today, you will be looking at the front cover and blurb.

 

Work through the Reading PowerPoint and follow along with the teacher recording (https://greenfield-primary-school.primarysite.media/playlist/wc-22221-king-smith-class-videos). You will need to complete today’s written task. The text is attached below.

 

Here is the order we usually follow in class for Reciprocal Reading:

  • Predict (sensible guess)
  • Read the pages
  • Clarify the meaning of words you didn’t know
  • Answer the questions
  • Summarise

Grammar

 

Green - This week in Grammar, we are learning about past simple/past progressive and perfect/past perfect tense.

 

Verbs are doing words.

 

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

 

  • Past simple tense: I polished my cup.
  • Past progressive tense: I was polishing my cup.
  • Perfect tense: I have polished my cup.
  • Past perfect tense: I had polished my cup.

 

Follow this link to a video explaining today’s learning: https://greenfield-primary-school.primarysite.media/playlist/wc-22221-king-smith-class-videos.  Once you have watched the video, work through the questions given. The answers are attached for you to mark them after.

 

ROY - Today, you will be learning to make nouns singular (1) and plural (more than one) and spell these nouns correctly.

 

To make a noun plural, we usually add ‘s’.

eg. Dog > Dogs

 

To make a noun ending with s, ch, sh and x plural, we add es.

e.g. Bush > Bushes

 

When a noun ends with a vowel (a, e, i, o, u) and y we add ‘s’.

e.g. Alley > Alleys

 

When a noun ends with a consonant (any other letter) and y we drop the y and add ies.

e.g. Body > Bodies

 

When a noun ends with f or fe, we change the f or fe to v and add es.

e.g. Shelf > Shelves

B2 - Today, you are going to learn how to use commas in a list. This is a comma: , .

 

In a list, items can be separated with a comma, and we join the last 2 items with the word ‘and’.

e.g. There is a pen, pencil, rubber and ruler in my pencil case.

BRAIN BREAK

 

Now you are half way through today's learning, it is time for a brain break. Follow this link to a Kidz Bop dance along video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfzRP6V5rE4

Maths

 

Green - Today, we are learning to add fractions. This is a recap lesson from Year 3 but it is important we go through it again.

 

Here is the link to a video that will teach you everything you need to know for this lesson, just as I would teach you in class: https://vimeo.com/507108462  

 

After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.

 

Attached is a true or false for you to answer. Work through it and explain your answers. This is just a discussion to have with somebody else, you do not need to write anything down.

 

All children to complete every question today as this is an essential recap lesson.

 

ROY - Today, you will be learning to recognise ⅓. A third is when a shape/object/amount is split into 3 equal parts and 1 of those parts is shaded/eaten/used etc.

 

This is recapped learning so try and think back to what you covered when learning about fractions in year 2.  Have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.

 

Blue - Today, you are going to start looking at numbers up to 100. Today’s focus is partitioning numbers up to 100. When partitioning we are splitting the number into parts, in this case, tens and ones.

Science

 

Today in Science, we will learn to describe the movement of the Earth relative to the sun in the Solar System.

 

Your learning for today will be on the website linked below, like last lesson.

https://www.developingexperts.com/

 

There will also be a different worksheet attached which is a labelling activity. This is to be done first as I would like you to label the Solar System before we begin.

 

You will have your own personal log in, which I emailed to you a few weeks ago, if you do not have this please contact me and I will send it to you.

 

Once you have completed it, I am able to see what you have been up to so do not worry about sending me any pictures for Science.

 

If you have not contacted me yet on email here is our class email address.
