# Thursday 21st May 2020

Hello!

Today is our Zoom call day! I hope that you are all as excited as I am!! I can't wait to see you all, I hope you can join us. I have sent the details to your parents if they are someone who has emailed the class email. If you have not emailed me yet, it is not too late if you would like the details so that you can see your friends!

See you later at 2 p.m.

Stay safe,

Miss Sharpe

Today, we are going to continue reading chapter 4 of our book ‘The Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth.’

Read today’s pages and then you will need to think about the key events that happened in this part of the story and write a summary of what you read in today’s part of the chapter.

Remember, a summary is only short and should include the key events. It should not be a long piece of writing, try and write your summary in no more than 3 or 4 sentences.

Literacy

Today, I would like you to recap your ‘S’ plan that you created yesterday. Then, you are going to think carefully about each part of your ‘S’ plan and you are going to think of:

• verbs (doing words)

• adverbs (words to tell me how, where or when an action happened)

• expanded noun phrases (more than one adjective to describe something).

One you have thought of some words and phrases for each part of the journey, you will need to write them onto your ‘S’ plan, next to the picture that represents that part of the story.

Maths

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green - Today you will be learning to compare angles. An acute angle is an angle that is smaller than a right angle (90 degrees) and an obtuse angle is an angle bigger than a right angle. There is a diagram attached to help you see this. 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 2 - Today you will be learning to compare lengths. You will need to use <, > and = symbols. Remember that a meter is bigger than a centimeter because there are 100cm in 1m. 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 1 - Today you will be learning to compare objects. There will be a range of mathematical language used such as, ‘more than’, ‘less than’, ‘fewer’. You need to be able to understand whether this language means more or less. 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).

Spellings

Today, in spellings, you are going to practise spelling your common exception words because before we left school, I marked your assessments and there are still many words that we need some more practise in spelling correctly. Below, I have chosen some of the words that had common mistakes in the assessment. Please see below, underneath your literacy group, the words I would like you to practise using the triangle method, as we have done in previous weeks.

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green - accidentally, address, believe, bicycle, business, calendar, certain, different, possess, possession, possible, potatoes, probably, quarter, separate and various.

Blue 2- Christmas, parents, Mrs, Mr, money, half, again, water, people, busy, clothes, many, any, important, island, learn, answer, arrive, build and nearly.

Blue 1- of, were, was, he, me, by, here, where, come, some, friend, school, once, house, our, pull and full.
