# Tuesday

## Good morning Troughton Class!

How did you get on with your learning yesterday?
Thank you for emailing your learning to me so that I can see how well you have done.

Keep working hard!

Phonics

Miss Sharpe's group - I would like to join in with the live phonics lesson streaming on youtube at 9:30am (remember if you miss it - don't worry! It will be on the youtube channel for 24hrs)
You are learning set 3 sounds so make sure this is the one that you watch. You should also watch and join in with the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today. You will need some paper and a pencil to write the words on.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.

For your reading learning today you are still using the non-fiction text 'The Great Fire of London'. You should read through the text again to remind yourself of the content.

For your main learning you are going to match information.

Skim through the text to find the key word you need to match, then read the sentence before checking the options for matching the word.

You should then be able to choose the best match.

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

Yesterday you learnt how to draw pictograms, today you are going to learn how to interpret a pictogram. Interpreting a pictogram is a useful skill as it means we understand and can explain what the pictogram is showing.

It is easy to look at a pictogram and work out which ‘thing’ is the most popular or least popular and that’s what makes being able to interpret one, a good skill.

Your learning video will help you be able to practise and learn this skill. Make sure you join in with the activities when asked to!

As you complete your worksheet, make sure you check the key carefully! Although, today if you check the keys carefully you’ll notice something about them!  Can you tell me what you noticed when you email?

Sorry, I made a mistake for Tuesday's maths work sheet - find the new worksheet below here.

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to identify, complete and continue number patterns by adding or subtracting 1 or 2. Sometimes the patterns will be increasing – getting bigger. Sometime the patterns will decrease – getting smaller.

I would like you to watch the video and then complete the independent activity mentioned on the video. Don’t forget to try the quiz after the video to test your learning.

## Writing

The last few weeks we have read a book called Cops and Robbers.

The robbers tried to steal lots of toys at Christmas time. Thank goodness Officer Pugh and the police caught them!

This week we are going to find out about a burglar called Bill.

The book is called Burglar Bill and has been written by the same authors Janet and Allan Ahlberg.

Bill steals lots of different kinds of things. Today I would like you to watch and listen carefully to find out what happens in the story.

Today we are going to make a list of some of the things that Burglar Bill stole but we are going to organise the list into alphabetical order.

Do you know the alphabet? Let’s remind ourselves. See if you can join in with this alphabet song:

Alphabetical order is a way of sorting a list. It helps a reader to find something in the list. It is done by following the order of letters in an alphabet. Watch the video to find out about this. Underneath there is an activity to put your knowledge to the test.

Look at our class names:  Troughton      Donaldson       Ahlberg

Let’s see if we can put them in alphabetical order.

Look at the alphabet.

 a   b   c   d   e   f   g   h   i   j   k   l   m   n   o   p   q   r   s   t   u   v   w   x   y   z

We have a class name beginning with a A so Ahlberg goes first.

Donaldson comes next because it starts with the letter d D which is close to the letter a.

Troughton begins with the letter t T so will come last in this list as t comes much further on in the alphabet.

Now it is your turn. On the worksheet are some of the things that Burglar Bill stole.

Can you put the items in alphabetical order?

## Geography

In our Geography learning today we are going to learn about continents and oceans.

A continent is a large area of land.

An ocean is a large area of saline water.

In the world there are 7 continents and 5 oceans.
Watch this video below to see if you can hear and see where the 7 continents and 5 oceans are.

Next you are going to try an interactive activity to show what you have learnt about where the different continents and oceans are.

Orange, Yellow and Green groups activity: Listen to the name of the continent or ocean and click on the correct place on the map.

Red and Blue group activity: Drag the continents and ocean to the correct place on the map.

There is a worksheet for you to complete.

Try this game, be warned you don’t have much time to label all of the continents and oceans! https://mrnussbaum.com/continents-and-oceans-online-game

To finish off here is a song about the 7 continents and 5 oceans:

Did you remember them all?

## Story time

Miss Meakin and I have recorded us reading a story for each day.

Today is Chapter 1 of The Picky Prince.

We hope you enjoy it. ðŸ˜Š
