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. Click here
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?
Our learning today is very similar to yesterday’s learning; it will be about comparing numbers to 50. Do you remember your numbers to 50 from last week? It’s important you do!
Can you remember the different ways we represented numbers?
We used 10s sticks and 1s cubes, we used 10s and 1s and partitioning.
Do you remember these symbols: <, >, = ?
This means is less than < e.g. 35 < 43
This means is greater than > e.g. 43 > 35
This means is equal to = e.g. 43 = 43
Watch this video to complete your warm-up and learning:
Now, complete your worksheet and remember to use careful counting!
Can you remember how to count to 10? Here’s a video to refresh your memory:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Yesterday, your learning was comparing objects to 10. Today I want you to compare numbers using the words less than and more than.
For example: 4 is more than 2 or 4 is less than 7.
I want you to answer the questions on the worksheet where you will need to use your careful counting!
Now try this fun game .
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.
Activity: Drag the continents and ocean to the correct place on the map. Click here
For your main learning activity this map may help you:
Now work through the power point to learn more about continents and oceans.
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!
To finish off here is a song about the 7 continents and 5 oceans:
Did you remember them all?
