# Wednesday

Good morning. Are you ready for another day's learning. Remember to send  your work to the class email page.

donaldson@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

I can see how you are doing with your learning and see if there is anything we might need to go over again.

Let's warm up first.

Phonics

Please watch today’s videos on RWI YouTube channel. They will show at 9.30am and will be available for 24 hours.

If you are in Miss Barnett’s group and Mrs Beech’s group you will need to watch the set 2 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos.

If you are in Miss Meakin’s group you will need to watch the set 3 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos. When you have completed this lesson, try the reading longer words lesson.

I have attached the link below. Just scroll down to find the videos you need.

You must be becoming really familiar with The Great Fire of London text now. Have you learnt anything you didn't already know?

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

Year 1

Today we are revising comparing objects.

can you remember some of the language we need to use when we compare amounts or numbers.

more      fewer     greater than     less than     equal to

We can also use symbols to compare.

You will need to first work out how many there are on side and then work out how many on the other side. It is a good idea to write this number down so you do not forget. Now you can compare.

They are the same. So we can say 16 is equal to 16. We can use the symbol to write this down. 16 = 16

Watch today’s learning on comparing numbers. Make sure you have your worksheet ready.

Year 2

Now you have learnt about pictograms you are going to move on to learn about block diagrams today.
A block diagram is where the types of items are shown on the x axis (horizontal), number of items are shown on the y axis (vertical) and one block represents one item.

Sometimes the scale is higher than one so one block could represent more than one. It is important to look at the scale on the y axis.

Watch the video below to learn about block diagrams!

When you complete your learning look carefully at the block diagrams to see what they are showing. How many of each amount are they showing?

Blue group

Today we are going to double and halve numbers.

Doubling is when we add the same number to itself, like this example.

Halving is where we share equally between two groups.

Half of 4 is 2.

You are going to use this knowledge to go shopping. You will need some objects like raisins, pasta or pennies to help you.

Watch the video and then complete the independent activity mentioned on the video. Don’t forget to try the quiz after the video to test your learning.

Literacy

Today we are going to look at the character of Burglar Bill. I want you to watch the story again but I want you pay special attention to Burglar Bill at the start of the story and Burglar Bill at the end of the story.

What kind of person is he at the start of the story?

What kind of character is he at the end of the story?

Does this character change?

How does he change?

Watch the story and see what you think?

## Burglar Bill - Books Alive!

.

I have some words that describe Burglar Bill at the start and end of the story but they are all jumbled up.  Can you sort them out?

Once you have done that, I would like you to use these words to write sentences about Burglar Bill.

Remember that the sentences need to start with a capital letter and end with a full stop. I want you to use evidence from the story to say why you think this.

Burglar Bill is a thief.

Burglar Bill is a thief because he steals other people’s property.

Blue group: I would like you to label the picture of Burglar Bill and then write sentences telling me some facts about him.

Art

We have been looking at patterns in art. We used different lines and colours to decorate our hands.

This week we are going to look at repeating patterns.

Patterns can be lines, shapes, colours that repeat. We see repeating patterns everywhere. Take another look at the patterns power point to remind yourself of patterns all around us.

I am going to show you how to make repeating patterns with paint and objects. In this example they are using a bottle lid, a piece of dowel and a sponge.

If you do not have these at home don’t worry. You can make repeating patterns with crayons, felt pens, chalk or pasta. You could even make a repeating pattern on the computer if you wanted to. You could get a bottle lid and draw round it using different colours then find another object to draw inside it. Look at my example. I used a glass, a glue stick and some felt pens.

The most important thing to remember whichever way you make your pattern; it needs to repeat the same pattern going across or down the page.

Make sure your pattern goes from one edge of the paper to the other.

Have fun with it and don’t forget to send me your artwork. I would love to see them all!

## Story time

It is time for the 2nd and final chapter of The Picky Prince!
