# Tuesday

## Good morning Troughton Class!

I hope you are well and happy! You have been working so hard and I am so, so, soooooo proud of you!

Keep emailing your learning to: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

Keep up the fabulous work and have a terrific Tuesday!

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.

Today we are going to read the next part of Mountain Mona. Watch the video below and join in with the different activities.

After you have watched the video you are going to practise a reading skill. You will be using the text to fill in the gap. Again, you have to use your Ninja eyes to locate the sentence with the gap in the text, so you can accurately select the correct answer.

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

In your maths learning today you are going to learn how to count faces on a 3-D shape.

Can you remember any names of 3-D shapes without looking at the 3-D shape mat below?

Here is a reminder of some 3-D shapes and their names:

A face is a flat or curved surface on a 3-D shape.
Look at this diagram to show you which part of a 3-D shape is a face.

A cube has 6 faces because there are 6 flat surfaces on the shape.

A sphere has 1 curved face because there is just 1 curved surface that makes the shape!

Use the interactive tools on the link below to practise counting the faces on a cube and a tetrahedron.

If you click the faces it will count them up for you! Click and drag the shape to find the sides you haven’t counted yet.

Today’s learning is a little trickier – but try your best! J

I have included a document with some posters of different 3-D shapes and their properties so you can check your answers.

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to practise our learning of comparing height and length.

Remember yesterday we learnt we have to line up the things we are measuring so we can be accurate when we compare the objects.

Look at these objects. They have all been lined up. Tell a grown up which is the longest? Which is the shortest? Are there any objects that are the same length?

## Writing

Last week we read Wolves by Emily Gravett.  In the book Rabbit borrows an information book about Wolves from the library.

This week we are going to find out about wolves and then write some information about them.

First, we will look at what rabbit found out from his information book. Remember these are facts so they are true. They have not been made up by the author.

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green gorups: You are going to write some of these facts on a fact sheet.

You might want to keep pausing the story to write the facts down.

When you have done this, I would like you to label a wolf. This is another type of information writing. It tells the reader all about a wolf’s appearance and its features (what they look like)

Blue group: I would like you to label a wolf.

Keep your wolf facts safe. You will need them on Thursday.

## Geography

For your Geography learning this week and in the weeks to come we are going to learn about capital cities within the UK. This week we will be learning about London which is the capital city of England. It is located in the South-East of England.

Have you ever visited London? If you have what do you remember seeing? The things you can remember are probably famous landmarks! Watch the video on the link below to find out about where London is located, how people travel around London and some of the famous landmarks.
