# Wednesday

Good morning.

I hope everyone is well and ready for learning.

Remember you can send me your learning on the class email or write just to say hello!

I have another book I have chosen for you to practise your super reading skills! This book is all about a lazy giant! What other stories do you know with a giant in them?

This book might take you longer to read. It is split up into 5 short chapters, so you could read a chapter a day. (Unless you get caught up in it, and want to finish it to see what happens!) At the back of the book it tells you a little bit about the author and there are some questions you could talk through with a grown up.

I hope you enjoy it. Let me know how you get on.

Maths

Year 1:  Here is a game to get your brains working this morning. Today you have to match the pictures that are symmetrical:

Today we are going to be measuring the length of objects using cubes. Look at the cubes. The first cube starts at the beginning of the object being measured and the last cube stops at the end of the object. Count the cubes carefully to see how long each object is.

Blue group: You are going to measure the objects using cubes too. Take care to count the cubes carefully!

When you have finished, answer these questions.

Which is the longest?

Which is the shortest?

Put the objects in order, from the shortest to the longest?

Year 2: Today we will be comparing measurements.

Just like yesterday, you will need to work out which numbers are the largest or smallest. You must look at the tens digit to see how many tens there are in each of the numbers. If both numbers have the same tens digit then look at the ones digit to see if you can find out which number is the greatest. This will help you solve the different problems.

Literacy

Today you need to watch the story of Anansi carefully and then see if you can answer the questions about it.

Year 2 - Try to answer the questions in complete sentences.

Year 1 – Read the words and match them to the correct picture and then answer the questions.

Art

This term we have been learning about sculpture. Today we are going to learn about another sculptor who also enjoyed drawing as well.

Your task today is to draw yourself or someone in your family in the style of this sculptor.

Click on the power point first to learn about Amedeo Modigliani, then click the worksheet to follow the instruction of drawing a face. There is an outline of a face on the last page if you would like to use it.

I look forward to seeing your pictures.
