Today we are going to look at the number of edges on a 3D shape. To understand what an edge is watch this video:

Again, if you can find some objects in your home that are the same shape that could help you with this learning.
Cylinder – can

## Maths: Blue group

÷ This is the divide sign, it means share equally.

Today we are going to be sharing amounts equally.

Cross each object out as you share them. How many are in each group? Read and complete the Maths sentence.

## Literacy: All groups

This week we are going to carry on looking at our book Traction Man.

Traction Man is all about a special toy that the boy gets as a present. This toy is called Traction Man and he is always around to save the day! He has lots of adventures in the house!

Today I would like you to watch the story Traction Man is Coming then see if you can write your own speech bubbles and tell me what the characters might be saying.

You can write different types of sentences.

You can write a telling sentence (a statement): I am going to wait for you.

You can write a question: What are you doing?

You can write a command: Stop!

Remember the different types of punctuation you might need.

If it is a telling sentence (statement) you need a full stop.

If it is a question you need a question mark.

If it is a command you need an exclamation mark.

## Design and Technology

In our last DT lesson we learnt about toy cars and made our own. Toy cars have been around for a long time, some toys have been around for many years, some toys are very new.

Click on the power point to look at the toys that were made many years ago and toys that are made now. What materials are they made from? How do they move?

Now click on the worksheet and pictures and sort the old and new toys.

Which of these toys is your favourite? Use the fact file worksheet to write about your favourite toy. I can’t wait to see what you write about your toy.
