# Thursday

## Good morning Troughton class!

It's Thursday and another day of home learning awaits! Are you ready to complete your learning? You should feel so proud of yourselves for how hard you are continuing to work. I am super proud!!!!

## Phonics

Miss Sharpe's group - Just like yesterday 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 the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.

Today you are still using the 'Chinese New Year' text. For today's reading lesson you can skim read through the text to remind you of the information inside the text. Your reading learning today is to answer multiple choice questions.

Skim through the text to find the part the question is asking you about, then select the correct answer from the choices.

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

Today you are going to learn how to make doubles.

To make a double you have 2 of your start number.
7 doubled is 7 + 7.
Doubling is multiplying a number by 2. So 7 doubled is the same as 2 X 7 as 2 lots of 7 make the double.

You could use things you have at home to help you complete this learning by counting out 2 of the same amount and joining them together to find the total. You could use things such as: coins, lego pieces, pasta pieces or small toys.

For your main learning you will be doubling an amount. Remember you can use resources to help you if you need to, or you can draw the amounts out.

If you are matching double you need to count the amount in the picture first and then work out the double of that number, so you can select the correct number as the double. There are some challenging questions at the bottom of your first page where it says double ___ is 12. If you share 12 equally between 2 groups you will find out what number has to be doubled to make 12.

For your challenge you need to identify the odd ones out and say what doubles of different numbers are. Try to think about what working out you used when explaining how you know.

## Maths: Blue group

For today’s learning you are going to learn how to add by making ten first. If we know and use our number bonds to ten first it helps us to add much more quickly and accurately.

Watch the video on the link below to learn how to do this.

Q1 – Draw out the first calculation using two counter colours. Then count the total. What is added to 10 to make the total? Now you need to draw 10 counters of one colour and the remaining counters in your other colour of choice.

Q2 – Use the blank tens frames to draw out the questions to help you fine the answer.
Q3 – When you work out the number bond to ten you must subtract the number you used to make the number bond from the whole.

Remember you have some blank tens frames to help you do your working out. If you cannot print at home an adult could draw a tens frame on a piece of paper.

## Writing

Today we are going to look at a different story of the Princess and the Pea but this time there is a twist. It is called The Very Smart Pea & The Princess To Be

Yesterday you wrote as if the princess was telling the story.

In this story the pea is telling the story. Yes, you read this correctly! The pea is telling the story!

Watch and listen carefully to the story to see if you can see the twist.

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups: Remember to answer the questions in full sentences. It was lovely to see many of you writing the answers in full sentences last week.

Blue group: You will need to tick the right answers and then write a sentence in the speech bubble and the thought bubble.

## Art

Did you enjoy The Smart Pea and the Princess-To-Be this morning?

Did you work out that the princess was the gardener’s daughter?

At the end of the story there was a lovely art activity and I thought we could try it.

You will need:

Some card or brown paper

Different coloured and patterned paper - you could always ask a grown up if they have an old paper or magazine you could use to cut up. That would make lovely mattresses!

Scissors glue

Pea – either real or a paper pea.

Once you have all these things. You can start. Watch the video from 8:19 and you can follow the instructions to make a princess and the pea picture.

Please send me a photograph of your finished pictures. I would love to see them.

I have attached some pictures to give you some ideas.

Good luck!
