# Wednesday

## Good morning Troughton class!

It's the middle of the week! I hope you are ready for some more learning today. I am so proud of the hard work you are still putting into all of your learning!
Keep sending me emails with pictures of your learning.  troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

For your reading today I would like you to read a story that may seem a little easy for some of you, but it looked fun and you can have a go at guessing which animal's tracks are in the pictures!

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

Today we are still completing geometry learning but are going to look at patterns and sequences again. You did this really well when we learnt about it in school. I hope you will find it just as enjoyable today!

A repeating pattern is something that is the same over and over, the order won’t change. If it is blue, red, blue, red it doesn’t matter how long the pattern is it will always be blue, red.

To start off with I am going to give you some repeating colour patterns on ice-creams. Look at the colours that are already there, can you notice a pattern?
Next you will look at 2D shape patterns.
Look carefully at the patterns, what shape came first? Which shape or shapes followed? Make sure you know which shape starts and ends the repeating pattern, this will help you.

Finally you will be looking at some 3D shape patterns.

## Maths: Blue group

Now we have learnt about halving ( ½ ) today we are going to be learning about finding a quarter ( ¼ ) of a shape.

Click on the power point below and work through it. After that complete your worksheet.

Remember that ¼ is 1 part of 4 equal parts.

## Literacy: All groups

For the rest of the week we are going to be taking one final look at Traction man.

You are going to write your very own Traction Man adventure. At the end of Traction Man is Here, Traction Man is relaxing with Scrubbing Brush after saving the day again by rescuing the spoons.  But, close by, there is danger!  Scissor Shark!

You are going to write about what happens when Traction Man comes across Scissor Shark!

Traction Man is written a little bit like a comic.

A comic tells the story through lots of pictures.

Sometimes the pictures will have some speech bubbles to tell the reader what the characters are saying.

Sometimes the pictures will have action words or sound words to give the reader a better picture of what is happening in the story.

Sometimes there will be captions for each picture which tell the story in sentences.

Today you are going to plan your Traction Man adventure. Use the planning chart to write down your ideas so you will remember them for tomorrow. You do not need to write in sentences on your plan. They are your notes – just important words or phrases (groups of words)

Your story must have a beginning, middle and end.

1. Where is Traction Man? (think about where he will be to see Scissor Shark)

What is he doing?

1. Who can Traction Man see in trouble? (from Scissor Shark)
2. What is Scissor Shark doing?
3. How does Traction Man save the day?
4. What happens at the end of the story?

Remember, you are going to be drawing pictures to tell your story so think carefully about what happens!

## Art

Last week we learnt about using primary colours to create pieces of art. Today we are going to learn about a famous artist who liked to use lots of different colours. His name is Andy Warhol.

Click on the powerpoint to learn more about him. He liked to choose a picture of an object or person and repeat this picture using different colours each time.

Today I would like you to create a piece of art in the style of Andy Warhol. Click on the worksheet below to use some of the pre-made repeated pictures or you can create your own.

I look forward to seeing your Art work!
