# Tuesday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you enjoyed your learning yesterday and are ready for today's learning!

I look forward to receiving your emails: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

## Reading

Today I'd like you to choose a story to read with someone at home and take it in turns to read a page each!
Who used the best expression? You, or the person you read with?

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

Today we will look at finding a fraction of an amount. The best way to do this is to share the amount into the amount of parts make the whole. You could use pieces of pasta or small toys to help you do this.
For example if the question asked you to find ¾ of 8, you can get 8 pieces of pasta and share them into 4 equal groups as we know the whole is made up of 4 parts. When you have done this you will have 4 groups with 2 in each. You need to count 3 groups as the fraction is asking you to find 3/4. When you count how many are in 3 groups you will have counted 6. So ¾ of 8 = 6.

For your challenge today you need to work out the fractions of amounts first so you can then find the pairs of fractions that equal the same amounts.

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to be learning about 1 more and 1 less. Try to count on or back in your head but you can use a 100 square if that will help you.

## Literacy: Blue and Red groups

In grammar we have looked at how we can make opposites using the prefix un.

well     unwell

Do you remember the opposite song?

The prefix dis also means “not” or “opposite”. It gives the word the opposite meaning.

like           dislike

agree       disagree

## History

This week we are going to look at a famous person who has helped change the world in which we live.

Tim Berners-Lee invented the world wide web. The world wide web is a collection of web pages that can be found on the internet. Berners-Lee has worked with computers all his life and came up with an idea that would allow people to share information with each other quickly and easily. Look at the power point to find out more about Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

In 2012 there was the London Olympics. This is a sporting event where athletes from lots of different sports, from all over the world meet and compete against each other. It happens every four years. At the London Olympic opening ceremony Sir Tim Berners-Lee played a special part in the ceremony. Watch this short video of that ceremony and see Tim Berners-Lee.

Now I would like you to look at the different activities and work out which ones use the world wide web and which ones do not use the world wide web.
