Have a terrific Tuesday!

Today you will read the same 'Minibeasts' poem and answer the rest of the questions.

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

We will spend another day on place value today.

Today we are going to order and compare numbers. The learning you completed yesterday about place value will be important today!

Numbers can be more than, less than or equal to each other. You can show this using symbols.

51 > 21 means 51 is more than 21
97 < 99 means 97 is less than 99
You need to look closely at the tens and ones when comparing and ordering.
Tip: If the tens digits are the same, look at the ones digit!
If the ones digits are the same, look at the tens digit!

To start your learning today you will be saying which number in a pair of numbers is the smallest.
Then you will look at some number sentences using < > or = and tick the number sentences you agree with and cross the ones you disagree with.
Following that you will put < or > between two numbers to show which is greater than or less than.
Then you will order 6 numbers from biggest to smallest, then from smallest to biggest.
You have the same learning and challenges today but one of the challenges will really get your brains working today. I will be really impressed if you can solve it!

## Maths: Blue group

Yesterday we partitioned numbers by writing the tens and ones, today we are going to be partitioning numbers using deines, these are actual tens and ones. Do you remember when we used them in class? Watch this video first and then have a go at the activity.

## Literacy: Blue and Red groups

Spelling

Today we are going to look at spelling plurals.

Plural means more than one.

For most nouns (naming words) we just add ‘s’ to make the plural.

one cat                  lots of cats

one dog                       two dogs

For nouns ending in ch, sh, s or x a we add “es”

one glass                three glasses

one torch          five torches

Watch the video to find out more about plurals

## Literacy: Orange, Yellow & Green groups

Spelling

This week we are going to look at spelling words with suffix -ly and -ness,

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

The suffix “ly” and  “ness” can just be added to most root words.

Where words end in “y” the ‘y’ changes to ‘i’ then the suffix “ly” or “ness”.

happy    happily    happiness

## Geography

This is our last Geography lesson this year! I have really enjoyed learning about Australia and I hope you have too. Today you will be learning about Sydney, a city in Australia.

Look through the power point to find out some key facts then I have made a quiz for you to answer to see how much you learnt about Sydney!
I am going to include an answer sheet too so perhaps your grownup can check your answers for you!
