# Thursday

## Good morning Troughton Class!

I hope you are having a good week so far and have been enjoying your learning. Thank you for sending me your emails. I love hearing from you and seeing what you have been up to! Keep up the super work!

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.

Today you are still using the 'Harbours' 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

Now you have learnt to draw a pictogram you are going to move on to interpret a pictogram. If you are interpreting a pictogram it means you can explain and understand what the pictogram is showing.

Being able to interpret a pictogram is a good skill to have as it can help us to compare a number of different things.

Watch this learning video and join in with the activities to learn how to interpret a pictogram.

When you complete your learning, remember to check the key as this tells you how much each picture is representing.

You might find it helpful to write the amount being represented in the rows after you have counted them.

## Maths: Blue group

Let’s look at tens and ones today.

When we look at tens and ones, we are looking to see how many bundles of ten we have and how many more there are.

So, 28 would have 2 tens and 8 ones.

## Writing

Today you are going to write the story about Officer Pugh.

Now you know what happens in your story you need to think about the words you are going to use to make the story interesting for the reader.

How are you going to start your story?

When does the story take place? – one day, one morning, one afternoon?

Can you some adjectives in your story/ - words to describe Officer Pugh or some of the robbers.

Can you use some interesting verbs (doing words)? Instead of ran what other verbs could you use?

Instead of Officer Pugh got the robber. What verbs could you use instead? (grabbed, caught, held tightly)

Can you include thoughts and feelings? How does Officer Pugh feel at different parts of the story? (happy, sad, exhausted, tired, overjoyed, worried, scared)

when you write your story remember to use:

• a capital letter to start a sentence or for a name and a full stop to end a sentence.
• Can you include a question anywhere in your story this week?
• Use conjunctions to write some longer sentences – and, but, because, so, or, when

Here is the start to my story:

Officer Pugh was working in the local station one cold December morning when the station officer came to see him. He told Pugh about the dreadful news that brand new toys were going missing from lots of children all over London Town! Families did not know what to do. Who was stealing all the toys? Why were they taking them? The police had to find the criminals and catch them as soon as possible!

There is a lot to think about when you write a story but I know you will do a fantastic job!

I have attached some lined paper if you need it.

I can’t wait to read them!

Blue group: Today you are going to finish writing your story using who, what doing, what colourful sentences.

Remember you need to look at each picture and think:

Who is in the picture?

What are they doing?

To what?

Don’t forget a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop at the end of the sentence.

Don’t forget the little words!

Now it is your turn to have a go at wring about the last 3 pictures.

## PSHE

We have been learning lots about goals, achievements and difficulties. Today we are going to learn how to celebrate success!

Success is when you accomplish something. It could be something you had to try really hard to achieve.

Can you think of something that you worked hard at and felt proud of when you finally did it?

It could be something to do with your learning at school, a club or team you are a part of outside of school or a different personal achievement.

Take a look at the power point below, it will guide you through all of your learning activities. The first activity asks you to match behaviours and actions to the achievement, you will find the cards you need for this activity below here.

The second activity is to list your achievements in different areas of your life. I have left 2 areas blank for you to choose as in the example it uses music and sport and these might not suit all of you! You should write the achievements that match each area near to it.

Your final activity (I am working you hard today!) is to create some medals to show your success and achievements. The gold outlined one should be your biggest achievement! I am really looking forward to seeing what things you have achieved.

Blue group: You can design 1 medal to celebrate your success. Use your sounds to write what you have achieved on the front and then you can add a design or colour to your medal.

## R.E

ChristianityThe Parable of the Sower.

The story of the sower is an 'allegory' about the Kingdom of God. This means it can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, everything in the story represents something else. The man going out to plant the seeds is like Jesus going and telling everyone about God.

First I would like you to watch this story here:

I have also attached the story in a power point for you to have a look at.

Today I would like you to retell the Parable of the Sower

Here is a word mat to help you with some of the vocabulary:

Blue group: You are going to draw the pictures to tell the story.

All: When you have finished retelling the story, there is a word search for you to complete.
