# Monday 23rd March 2020

Good morning Dahl Class! I hope you have had a lovely weekend in the sunshine. This weekend, I took my dogs, Nina and Twig, for a walk and baked some brownies for my family and I. It will be strange not seeing your smiley faces in our classroom this morning. I also hope that you and your families are safe and well.

I am hoping that soon we will have a safe and secure class email set up so that you are able to contact me. As soon as the email address is set up, I will be sure to update our class page with the information you need.

Today I would like you to read through the Isaac Newton PowerPoint, with an adult, that I have attached. Once you have read the information, answer the questions from the document 'Reading Questions'. Try and remember the information as this will come in handy during your Science activity.

Maths

ROYG - Today you will be learning to calculate perimeter. Remember perimeter means the length all the way around the shape, so you must remember to add the lengths of ALL the sides. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

Blue - Today I would like you to read, write and represent numbers in different ways. There are two sheets attached. Have a go at the document called 'Blue Maths' first. If you are finding this quite easy, then move onto the 'Blue Maths Challenge'. Remember, when you write numbers as words they must be spelt correctly so get an adult to check the spellings for you.

Science

For today's Science activity, I would like you to create an informative poster all about Sir Isaac Newton. Newton was a famous scientist that discovered lots about forces.

Here are some links to videos that will tell you lots about Newton:

I have also attached a document that you could use to help you form sentences about Isaac Newton on your poster, this document includes a word bank. If you do have a printer, there is also a template you could print off for your child to write on and add colour to.

Storytime

The Sheep Pig - Chapter 2

Myself and Miss Sharpe have decided that it would be nice to continue our reading of ‘The Sheep Pig’ through Reciprocal Reading tasks, as well as Storytime audio clips that you can listen to at home with an adult, on some days. It is important that you listen to these audio clips as the Reciprocal Reading tasks will follow on from these.

In class, we had started reading the Sheep Pig by Dick King-Smith. So far in the Sheep Pig, Mr and Mrs Hogget heard a loud squealing sound in the valley from up at their farm. Mr Hogget went down to the fayre in the valley where he discovered the vicar on a stall with a crate. In the crate, was a pig. The vicar got Mr Hogget to guess the weight of the pig and explained that if he guessed the correct weight, he would win the pig. Later that day, Mr Hogget received a phone call from the vicar telling him that he had won the pig and that he needed to collect his prize. Mr Hogget brought the pig back to the farm where Fly, the mother of 4 border collie puppies, cared for the lonely, orphaned pig. She asked the pig what his name was and he replied, ‘I don't know’.
