# Wednesday

## Good morning Troughton Class!

I hope you are all feeling happy and ready to learn today!

Here's a reminder of the class email address if you would like to send me an email or some pictures of your learning: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

* Who is the main character?
* What happens in this story?
* Were there any funny parts? What parts were funny?
* What was your favourite part and why?
* Was there a part you didn't like and why?

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

Today you need to find 3/4 of objects. To do this you need to share the whole amount into 4 equal groups, then add 3 of the groups together to make 3/4 as each group is worth 1/4.

Red/Orange: The whole amounts have been split into quarters. To find 3 quarters you must count 3 of the groups as each group is worth 1/4. Make sure you read the questions carefully so that you do what it is asking. Some of the questions might be asking you which number sentence is correct.

Yellow/Green: To find 1/4 you know you need to share the whole amount equally into 4 groups. You are finding 3/4 so after you have shared the whole amount into 4 groups you must then count the total of 3 groups. Each group is 1/4 meaning 3 groups is equal to 3/4.

## Maths: Blue group

Last week and this week we have been practising adding and subtracting (taking away). Today we are going to use these skills to compare number sentences. To do this we are going to be using greater than (>), less than (<) and equal to (=). Do you remember these symbols? Here is an example to remember how to use them.

## Literacy: All groups

Yesterday you performed a poem... now it’s your turn to write a poem.

Do you all know the song The Wheels on the Bus? Watch the video to remind yourself if you need to.

Now you are going to change this, to write a poem about car noises!

You can use some of the ideas on the sheet or you may think of other words to describe the sounds each part of the car makes.

## Design & Technology

In the last DT lesson we learnt about stability, making something that wouldn’t fall over. Today we are learning about structure. This means we are going to learn about how things are built using different parts. We will learn about structure by learning about bridges. There is a power point attached that explains different structures bridges use.

After you have learnt about these different structures, I want you to design and make your own bridge. The bridge has to be strong enough to carry a toy car. You could build it so it reaches from a table to a chair, or it could go over a house made of Lego. You could use a range of different things for support such as: straws, spaghetti, blu-tack, string, yoghurt pots. Be creative! Remember to stick to your plan and think about the structure and stability of your bridge. After you have made your bridge, send me a picture. I would love to see what your structure looks like.
