Wednesday

Good morning Troughton class!

How did you get on with your learning yesterday? Are you ready for another day of home learning? Keep working hard!

Phonics

Miss Sharpe's group - Just like yesterday I would like to join in with the live phonics lesson streaming on youtube at 9:30am (remember if you miss it - don't worry! It will be on the youtube channel for 24hrs)
You are learning set 3 sounds so make sure this is the one that you watch. You should also watch the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.

You must be becoming really familiar with the 'Chinese New Year' text now. I bet you know lots about the Chinese New Year that you didn't before! What is the most interesting fact you have learnt?

For your reading learning today you will be using the text to fill in the gap. Again, you have to use your Ninja eyes to locate the sentence with the gap in the text, so you can accurately select the correct answer.

Maths: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

For today’s learning you are going to learn how to use arrays.

Before Christmas we did lots of learning about arrays, talking about the columns and rows. Remember the columns are the ones going down and the rows go across.
See this example below:

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups: For your learning you need to work out how many columns and rows there are in each array. This will help you to fill in the boxes.

If I was writing an addition or multiplication number sentence for the above example there are two ways I could write them.
I could look at the columns:
3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 15
5 X 3 = 15

Or
I could look at the rows: 5 + 5 + 5 = 15
3 X 5 = 15

For your challenge you need to draw an array. Remember to organise the dots in rows and columns equally.

Yellow and Green groups: You will need to draw a number of arrays to show an amount. If you are finding this tricky you could use 12 items to help you, such as: coins, pasta pieces or small toys.

Maths: Blue group

Today you are continuing to learn about number bonds. You will be finding and making number bonds.

Watch this video to learn how to find and make number bonds.

Remember you can use some items you have at home to help you with your counting. You could use lego pieces, pasta pieces or small toys to make the number sentences.

Q1 – Count how many in the picture are red and yellow to complete the number sentences.
Q2 – This question would be best to use things to physically count as some of the questions are a bit trickier having the largest number at the start!

Q3 – Using 20 items or 20 drawn out dots, subtract the small known part of the bar model to find the remainder which will be the answer to the missing part of the bar model.

Writing

Today you are going to pretend to be the princess in the story of the princess and the pea and tell the story from her point of view.

You might need to watch the story again to remind yourself of the events.

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

You will need to write about:

• Picture 1

Beginning – where were you? Why were you in the storm? How did you feel?

• Then what happened - Where did you go? Who answered the door? How did the people help you when you first went in the palace?
• Picture 2

Next – Where did you stay? What did you think to your bed? What was it like getting into your bed?

• Picture 3

After that – How did you feel? Who came to see you? What did you tell the queen?

• Picture 4

Finally – What did the queen say to you? What did the prince ask you? How did you feel?

Because you are pretending to be the princess, you will need to use I, me and my in your sentences.

Remember to:

1. Put a capital letter to start every sentence and a full stop at the end of your sentence.
3. Use conjunctions to write some longer sentences – and, but, because, so, when, or

One evening I was out for a long walk when it began to rain. It poured down! I stood underneath a tall tree to try and stay dry but my clothes were soaking wet and I could not stop shivering. I decided to run and find somewhere to shelter. After a while I saw a huge building with bright lights shining in the window so I went knocked on the door.

There is some lined paper to print below if you have no lined paper at home.

Blue group

I would like you to write a sentence to tell me what the princess is saying in each picture. You will be writing it in a speech bubble. This shows me what she is saying.

I have done the first one for you.

Don’t forget to say your sentence first and then write the words using your RWI sounds. Leave finger spaces between each word.

See if you can remember to start your sentence with a capital letter and put a full stop at the end of the sentence.

R.E

Christianity - The parable of the Good Samaritan

This term we are learning about Christianity. Remember last week we learnt about the story of Zacchaeus, can you remember what happened in that story?

This week we are learning about the story of the Good Samaritan. This story is all about treating others as you would like to be treated.

Watch this story first:

I’ve attached the worksheet for you and a power point for you to look through to help you with your work.

Blue group - Can you say what has happened in each picture? Retell the story of 'The Good Samaritan'

Red and Orange groups - Write a sentence for each picture, use the word bank to help you.

Yellow and Green groups - Cut out and order the pictures. If you are unable to print you could draw the pictures in the correct order.

There's a quiz for you to try, to see how much of the story you have learnt and remembered.
