# Tuesday 23rd February 2021

Today, we are going to be continuing with our new book, ‘The Borrowers’ by Mary Norton. Today, you will be reading pages 1-6.

Work through the Reading PowerPoint and follow along with the teacher recording (https://greenfield-primary-school.primarysite.media/playlist/wc-22221-king-smith-class-videos). You will need to complete today’s written task. The text is attached below.

R - Questions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

O - Questions 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Y - Questions 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

G - Questions 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

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.

BRAIN BREAK

Now you are half way through today's learning, it is time for a brain break. Follow this link to a Kidz Bop dance along video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aT9-QyzuK4A

Maths

Green - Today, we are learning to add 2 or more fractions. This will follow on from yesterday's lesson.

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/507468794

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.

ROY - Today, you will be using yesterday’s learning to find ⅓. A third is when a shape/object/amount is split into 3 equal parts and 1 of those parts is shaded/eaten/used etc.

This is recapped learning so try and think back to what you covered when learning about fractions in year 2.  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.

Blue - Today, you are going to be learning to compare numbers to 100. When we compare, we use <, > and =, and hear words like greater, fewer, more, less and equal.

Here is the link to videos that will teach you everything you need to know today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMMn55AWk20

Once 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.

RE

This week in RE, we are going to be thinking about life as a journey and some of the obstacles we encounter along the way and how we deal with them. Follow this link to a video you can watch which explains today’s learning (https://greenfield-primary-school.primarysite.media/playlist/wc-22221-king-smith-class-videos).

Use the quotation, “Life is like..” and put it on a piece of paper to begin our mindmap. Work with a grown up to create new similes that represent life to you.

• Do you both agree with each other? Why?
• Do you both disagree? Why?

Most religions tend to view life as a journey.
