# Wednesday

## Good morning Troughton Class!

How are you today?
Thank you for sending me emails of your learning, please keep sending them in to: troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Phonics

Miss Sharpe's group - 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 and join in with the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today. You will need some paper and a pencil to write the words on.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.

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: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

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?

## Maths: 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.

## Writing

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?

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

Patterns

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 this example. It uses 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!
