# Tuesday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you are well and happy. I enjoyed seeing some of your super learning yesterday! A reminder of the email address: troughton@greenfiel.walsall.sch.uk

Enjoy your learning today and I hope you make time to do some fun things too!

Today I have a book that I would like you to read. Remember if you come across any words you find a bit tricky, use your speed sounds to fred talk the words.

It is about the famous characters of Winnie and Wilbur. It is all about having to stay at home at the moment, just like you are having to do!

I really enjoyed it. Let me know if you enjoyed it too!

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

Today we will be comparing measures.

There are 100cm in 1 metre.

100cm = 1m

You must look at the tens digit to see how many tens there are in each of the numbers. If both numbers have the same tens digit, then look at the ones digit to see if you can find out which number is the greatest. Then you will be able to work out which way the greater than or less than sign needs to go
Green & Yellow Be careful there are 2 really tricky ones!

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to be comparing lengths and heights. Today we are going to be using words like taller, shorter, tallest and shortest. Use good looking to see the different sizes to complete the number sentences.

## Literacy: All groups

This week we are going to read and watch a folktale that is set in another country. This story is
from Ghana, a country in Africa.
Look on a map to see if you can find Africa and Ghana.

A folktale is a story from long ago. They were not written down but were told to people. This was
how the stories were spread and became well known. These stories were told by people to pass on
important information and lessons that could be learnt by children and anyone else listening to
them. This folktale is about Anansi. He is a spider and a trickster!
What do you think a trickster is? Tell a grown up what kind of spider you think Anansi is.

Today I would like you to watch the story of Why Anansi has eight long legs.

When you have watched it, I would then like you to read the story yourself. This is a fantastic chance to practise your super reading skills! You could always send me a video of you reading the story to me!

When you have done that, I would like you to put the sentences in order! My computer has muddled them up again!

I have attached some pictures which also tell the story but my computer has muddled these too!
See if you can match the sentences to the correct picture.
If you cannot print the pictures you could tell a grown up which sentence goes with which picture.

## Geography

In our last Geography lesson you learnt about the outback. Australia is full of interesting places and impressive locations. Take a look at the power point about natural locations.

Which one impressed you the most?
I would like you to choose one of the natural locations to write a fact file or create a booklet about. Use the information on the power point to help you and you could even try to find out your own facts too!
Take a look at the document below for some ideas on how to create your fact file or booklet!
