# Tuesday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I really enjoyed seeing some pictures of your fabulous fraction work yesterday and lots of smiley faces too!  I hope you are all well and ready for another day of learning.

Please remember to take some time out of your day to pick up a book and take a look inside. It is really important to practise your reading each day so that you do not lose your super reading powers!!

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

Today you are going to find ½ & ¼ of objects (The question numbers may be in the wrong order or missing, this is how the sheet should be).

Red/Orange: Look at the whole amount, count it so you know how many there are altogether. If the picture has been split into 2 or 4 groups check each group is equal. Read the questions carefully to check what it is asking you to find!

Yellow/Green: Count the whole amount. If you are finding half you need to split the whole amount into 2 equal groups. You could find something at home to help you do this if you need to (coins/pasta/cars).

When finding a quarter you must split the whole amount into 4 equal groups. 1 of these 4 groups is equal to 1/4.

No challenge today as there are lots of questions for you to have a go at, but the challenge will be back tomorrow!

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to be using the subtraction (take away) skills we learnt yesterday, and finding the difference between 2 numbers.

When we want to find how many more there are, we have to take away the smaller number.

If Alex has 12 apples and Daniel has 4. How many more apples does Alex have?

We have to find the answer to 12 – 4.

You can do this by counting back on a number line, counting back in your head or drawing lines and crossing them off as you count.

## Literacy: All groups

This week we are going to look at some poems about transport.

Today we are going to look at a poem. This poem is all about noises!

I would like you to read and perform the poem aloud to a grown up.

You could send me a video of you performing the poem too if you'd like to!

Once you have done this if you scroll down beneath the poem you will see a list of objects. I want you to think of a sound to describe the noises these objects make.
Finally, at the very bottom you will see a section to think of some sounds you like and some which you do not like.

Example:
I like the sound of my cat meowing to greet me when he comes inside.
I like the sound of a river or stream flowing, I find this relaxing.

I don't like the sound of cutlery scraping on a plate!
I don't like the sound of dogs barking lots.

## History: All groups

Last week we read the story of Mr Gumpy. He had an old motor car. Cars of today are very different. We are going to look at cars over time.

I would like you to look at the power point to find out about how cars have changed.

When you have finished looking at the power point, I would like you to look at the 3 motor cars and put them in order on the timeline with the earliest car first. If you do not have a printer, you can write the name of each car in order on a timeline, or you can tell a grown up the order.

After you have put the cars on the timeline, look at the two cars and compare them. What is the same and what is different about them?

Below is a video of a very early steam car. that had been built to show people what cars were like a very long time ago. Have a look. Would you like to go for a ride in this car?
