Imagine, Believe, Succeed

Wednesday

Good Morning Troughton Class

A huge thank you to all the parents who have been emailing me, sharing pictures of your learning. I have loved looking through all of your wonderful work! laugh If you didn't email me yesterday to receive your child's spag.com log in details, don't worry there's still time! A reminder of the email address: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk 

I hope the files are opening correctly now that they have been changed to PDFs. Please let me know if you struggle to open any of the documents. smiley

Maths: Green, Yellow, Orange & Red groups

Today you are going to be reading 2 digit numbers. As with the previous days, make sure you click the worksheet for your group! Be careful with the challenge activities! wink
Green & Yellow CHALLENGE - don't forget those hyphens! -

Orange & Red - CHALLENGE - be careful with those -teen and -ty endings! laugh

Maths: Blue group

Today you will be subtracting from 20. The questions have a choice of 3 different answers. When you have worked out the answer either by counting back in your head or using the number line, tell your grownup which answer is correct! laugh

Literacy/Writing

You have heard about Gerald the Giraffe in the story 'Giraffes can't dance'. Now you are going to research (find out) about giraffes and create a fact file to tell other people all about giraffes. 
You should think about: 
* what they look like
* where they live (country/habitat)
* what they eat
* how tall they grow to be
* any other interesting facts!
Here are some links to some useful websites where you could gather your information:

https://animalfactguide.com/animal-facts/giraffe/

https://www.coolkidfacts.com/giraffe-facts-for-kids/

You could include a picture of a giraffe that you have drawn! 
I will include an example of how your fact file could be set out below.

Spring - Mini topic!
Science

We have completed lots of super learning about spring this week! Today I would like you to watch the video on the link below and have a look at what all the different animals are doing in the spring time. 
You could draw some pictures of what they are doing or write some sentences about how they are behaving in the spring time. 
What do you notice?
Why do you think they are doing these different things?

Here's the link:

Computing

We really enjoyed all of our learning with the beebots when we were in class. I would like you to use your super knowledge of algorithms to create your own!
Watch the video below to remind yourself what an algorithm is.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z3tbwmn/articles/z3whpv4 

You have 2 options for your algorithm:
1.     Write an algorithm to build a toy. You can use something like Lego, building blocks or any other toy you have. Don’t make it too complicated!

2.    Write an algorithm to get from the lounge to your bedroom.


I'm looking forward to hearing which one you chose! laugh
