## Reading

Today I have found a poem for you to read.

## I Let My Sister Cut My Hair

I had to get a haircut.
It was looking much too long.
I let my sister cut it.
I mean, what could she do wrong?

She clipped some bald spots here and there.
She whacked the sides a little.
And then she shaved a three-inch stripe
directly down the middle.

She chopped some sections super short,
left others long and wild,
then shaved one eyebrow off before
she looked at me and smiled.

I don’t think that I’ll let her
give me haircuts anymore.
Or maybe I’ll just wait a while;
at least until she’s four.

— Kenn Nesbitt

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

For your Maths learning today, you will be looking at tally charts again. However, you will be answering some reasoning problems today.

You will have to look carefully at what the question is asking you and you need to explain some of your thinking.

Remember each tally mark is worth 1 and a group of tally marks is worth 5.
For your challenge today, you are going to create your own tally chart to show you understand how to draw a tally and complete a table.

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to be learning about how to tell the time using o’clock. There are hands on a clock:

The small hand is the hour hand

The big hand is the minute hand

Some clocks have a second hand too, it moves quickly

Look at a clock in your house, can you name each hand? Today we are learning about o’clock. When the minute hand is on the 12 we say o’clock. The hour hand tells us what hour it is. Click on the worksheet to see if you can label the time.

Now watch this video to see if you can tell the time using o’clock.

## Literacy: Blue & Red groups

## Literacy: Orange, Yellow & Green groups

This week we are going to be looking at a spelling rule for when we add the suffix ful and less.

A suffix is a letter, or group of letters, that is added to the end of a. root (base) word. A suffix changes the meaning of the root or base word.

The suffix -ful means full of so truthful means full of truth. Be careful though the suffix -ful only has one “l”.

The suffix -less means without so fearless means without fear.

Look at the power point to find out more about the suffix -ful and -less.

Now click on the document to practise your learning.

## History

This week we are going to be looking at another famous woman who lived a long time ago.

So far, we have looked at:

Queen Victoria  1819 – 1901.

Grace Darling 1815 – 1842 (she received her bravery medal from Queen Victoria)

Now we are going to look at a woman called Emily Davison and see why she was significant. (important)

She was a member of a group called the suffragettes. Suffragettes were a group who wanted women to be able to vote at a time when the law (a set of rules) said only men could vote.

Watch the film all about Emily Davison to find out what she did to try and get women the vote.

After you have watched it, complete the fact file about her.
