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

Maths

Green - Today, we are continuing our learning to recap fractions of a set of objects. This is learning from the previous year but it is really important that we recap this before we move on.

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/510590763

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, we are learning to make a whole. When there is a whole, the numerator and denominator of the fraction (top and bottom number) should be the same e.g. 4/4.

After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. This is recapped learning so try and think back to what you covered when learning about fractions in year 2. 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, we are learning to make equal groups. The word equal means there will be the same amount/value in each group.

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.
