# Thursday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you are having a good week so far. Please keep sending me emails of your super learning or just to tell me what you have been up to. I have had some lovely emails this week!

For your reading task today you will be using the United Kingdom text to answer some true or false questions and some find and copy questions. Make sure you look back in the text to find the answers.

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

Today we are going to move on to read quarter past times as well as o’clock and half past times.
Remember the minute hand is the longer one and when it is on the 12 it is an o’clock time. The hour hand is the shorter hand and points at what hour it is when it is an o’clock time.

When reading half-past times the minute hand will always be on the 6 when it is a half-past time, the hour hand will be in between two numbers. If it was half past 1 the hour hand would be between the 1 and the 2 as it is on its way to 2 o’clock.

For quarter past times the minute hand will always be on the 3, the hour hand will usually be slightly past an hour. So if it was quarter past 4 the hour hand would be a little past the number 4.

## Maths: Blue group

Today you are going to be making arrays.

Arrays are pictures we can draw to help us with repeated addition or multiplication questions.

Have a look at the power point first as it explains why we use arrays, then click on the worksheet below.

## Literacy

Now that you have found out about superheroes, you are going to design and write about your very own superhero.

First watch the video to find out about superheroes.

Now use the design a superhero sheet to show what your superhero looks like. Think carefully about the costume they might wear and what tools they might hold.

When you have done that, I would like you to write some sentences telling me all about your superhero. I have attached “My superhero identity” sheet to write your sentences on.

If you are not able to print this, you can draw your superhero on a piece of paper and write your sentences underneath.

Your sentences need to have a capital letter, a full stop, adjectives to describe and add more detail and you could use and, but, because to write longer sentences.

You will need to write about:

• What your superhero is called
• What the costume looks like
• What special powers your superhero has
• How your superhero got its power

## R.E

Last week we learnt about why a Mosque is a special place to a Muslim.
This week we are going to read a short story about a new Mosque. Then you are going to answer some questions about how Aysha felt about the new Mosque.
When you answer the questions try to use full sentences.
I think Aysha felt ________ because ________________________.

Also attached is a file with some pictures of the inside of a Mosque for you to have a look at.

## PSHE

This week we are going to learn about safety in the sun which is good as we have had lots of super sunny days lately!
Work through the power point to learn about why we need to protect ourselves from the sun and how we can protect ourselves.
Then you have 3 activities you can choose from to complete.
You could:
* Design a hat - what colour would you want it to be? Do you want a TV character on it?
* Design a pair of sunglasses - What colour would you like these to be? Do they have a pattern?
OR
* Draw all the items you need to pack in a bag for a day trip to the beach on a sunny day to protect yourself from the sun (not buckets and spades!).

If you can't print the worksheets out, try your best to draw the outlines or ask a grownup to help you draw them, if you can't draw the outlines write some sentences explaining your designs or a list of what you would need to pack.
