# Wednesday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I hope you are feeling happy and ready to work hard.
I enjoyed looking at some of your learning from yesterday, that was emailed to me.
Keep sending your emails to: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

For your reading today I would like you to choose a story you enjoy reading. You could email me to tell me which book you have read and why you enjoyed it!

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

Today we are moving on to addition and subtraction. This is your strongest area which is why we are doing both in one day! You know I like to make you work hard!

Look at the examples below to remind you how you can draw calculations out if you are struggling.

Now solve the addition and subtraction questions for your group. Check the symbols carefully so you know whether you are adding or subtracting!

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to be putting our knowledge and understanding of tens and ones to the test by adding. Add your ones first, then add your tens. Draw the answer in the box at the end. What number have you made?

Here is a game for you to play to put your learning to the test:

## Literacy: All groups

This week we are going to look at a new story called Baboon on the Moon.

Baboon on the Moon is a short film but there are no words, so you have to watch the actions and listen to the music carefully. Click on the link to watch the film.

Did you enjoy the story? How did it make you feel?

Now you have watched the film I would like you to complete the chart to write statements about what you have found out about Baboon then I would like you to write down questions to record what we don’t know about Baboon.
You may need to watch the film again before you complete the chart.

## Art

In our last Art lesson we learnt about Andy Warhol and how he uses colour to make bright art, before that we learnt about Mondrian and how he uses primary colours to make his art.
Do you remember what the 3 primary colours are? Today you are going to experiment with colour.
Do you know what 2 colours make green? What colour is made if you mix red and blue? Watch the song about mixing colours and then have a go at it yourselves with the colour wheel I’ve attached if you have paints at home.
First paint on the 3 primary colours like in the video. Then use a paper plate to mix two primary colours together and the colour that you make goes in the middle of them.
If you don't have paints you could always colour them in with pencil colours!
