Tuesday Reading | Greenfield Primary School (primarysite.media)

Here is the order we usually follow in class for Reciprocal Reading:

• Predict (sensible guess)

• Clarify the meaning of words you didn’t know

• Summarise

Spelling

Today you are going to practise some of your common exception word spellings. Below, there is an activity mat that will help you to use and spell your common exception words accurately. Please select your activity pack based on your group colour and work through the activities. If you don’t have a printer, that is fine – just complete the activities on paper.

Maths

Today, we are going to learn about problem solving - calculate quantities. This is new learning.

Here is the link to a video that will teach you everything you need to know for this lesson, just as I would teach you in class: https://vimeo.com/511578840

After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.

Attached is a true or false for you to answer. Work through it and explain your answers. This is just a discussion to have with somebody else, you do not need to write anything down.

Green/Yellow-Start from Q5.

Orange- Start from Q3

Red- Start from Q1

RE

In today’s RE lesson, we are going to listen to a story from the Hindu religion. The story is called ‘Six Blind Men and an Elephant’.  In this story, six blind men meet in the village and try to decide what an elephant looks like.  The ruler of the village takes them to meet an elephant and they all feel a different part of the elephant so all get a different idea as to what it looks like.

Hindus tell this story to describe God, they believe that there is one God that is seen in many different ways, just like the elephant was.

Your task is to divide a piece of paper into sections and draw yourself in different ways. For example a son/daughter, brother/sister, pupil, sports team player, game player, pet carer, there are lots of things that you could be drawn as.

Please listen and enjoy a chapter a day of this incredible book.
