Today is the 1st of July!
I hope you are having a good week so far and have enjoyed the learning you have been completing. I have been really proud of those of you who are continuing to send me pictures of your learning. You are working so hard!
If you would like to send me an email, please use the class email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
For your reading today I have included a book about dinosaurs. I hope you enjoy finding out some facts!
For your Maths learning today, you will be learning about pictograms.
Pictograms are used to show amounts in pictures. Sometimes each picture represents more than 1. It will usually tell you in a key how much the picture is worth. So if the pictogram used triangles it would say triangle = 1 or triangle = 2.
If each picture is worth 2 and you can only see half of the picture, this means it is worth 1 as half of 2 is 1.
Yesterday we learnt about o’clock, today we are going to learn about half past. When the minute hand is on the 6 we say half past because it has gone half way past the hour. The hour hand tells us what hour it has gone past. Click on the power point to learn about half past. Then click on the worksheet to see if you can label the time.
Watch the video below to see if you can tell the time using half past.
Today we are going to look at a poem by a famous writer from a long time ago. His name is Robert Louis Stevenson. He was Scottish and wrote many books and poems. People still like reading his books today, such as Treasure Island.
The poem we are going to look at is called “My Shadow”
Watch and listen to the poem here.
Did you like the poem?
I would like you to practise reading this poem and then perform it to a grown up.
Perhaps you could send me a video of this.
When you have done this, I would like you to answer a few questions about the poem.
Last DT session we learnt about old and new toys.
Can you remember any of the toys we learnt about? Old toys were usually hand made using fabric, wood and glass like the teddies that had glass eyes. New toys are usually made by a machine and are created using plastic.
One toy that has been around for many years is Lego. Have you got some Lego at home? Have you created something before using Lego? Watch this clip to see how Lego is made:
Now I want you to pretend that you work at the Lego headquarters and it’s your job to design a brand new Lego character.
Use the design sheet to colour and label your Lego person.
Next use the layout to colour in and cut out your own Lego characters. There is a word search all about toys for you to finish with. I can’t wait to see your Lego characters!
