# Wednesday 24th February 2021

Today, we are going to be continuing with our new book, ‘The Borrowers’ by Mary Norton. Today, you will be reading pages 6-end of chapter 1.

Work through the Reading PowerPoint and follow along with the teacher recording (https://greenfield-primary-school.primarysite.media/playlist/wc-22221-king-smith-class-videos). You will need to complete today’s written task. The text is attached below.

Here is the order we usually follow in class for Reciprocal Reading:

• Predict (sensible guess)
• Clarify the meaning of words you didn’t know
• Summarise

Literacy

Today in Literacy, we are going to be looking at our new book, ‘The Borrowers’, which links to our reading.

This half term, we will use a mixture of Oak Academy lessons and lessons on the school website like normal.

Your first lesson is going to be to develop an understanding of key characters from 'The Borrowers'.

BRAIN BREAK

Now you are half way through today's learning, it is time for a brain break. Follow this link to a Kidz Bop dance along video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GE0HdSGHRk

Maths

Green - Today, we are learning to subtract fractions. This is a recap lesson from Year 3 but it is important that we go through it again.

Here is the link to a video that will teach you everything you need to know for this lesson, just as I would teach you in class: https://vimeo.com/507527822

After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.

Attached is a true or false for you to answer. Work through it and explain your answers. This is just a discussion to have with somebody else, you do not need to write anything down.

ROY - Today, you will be learning about unit fractions. A unit fraction is when the numerator (top number of the fraction) is 1. e.g. ⅓ ½ ¼ etc.

This is recapped learning so try and think back to what you covered when learning about fractions in year 2.  Have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.

Blue - Today, you are going to continue comparing numbers to 100. When we compare, we use <, > and =, and hear words like greater, fewer, more, less and equal.

This is something you learnt about yesterday, if you need to refer back to that video then do so. Have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.

PSHE

This week in PSHE, we are learning to keep safe online.

At the moment, we are using technology more than ever to keep up to date with our school work and keep in touch with friends and family.

• What types of technology do you have at home?
• Why do you use them?
• Are you using them safely?

Watch the clip below:

Below are 6 rules to keep safe online...

1. SAFE:

Keep your personal information safe. When chatting or posting online, don’t give away things like your full name, password or home address. Remember, personal information can be seen in images and videos you share too. Keep them safe to keep yourself safe.

2. MEET:

Meeting up with someone you only know online, even a friend of a friend, can be dangerous, as this person is still a stranger. If someone you only know online ever asks you to meet up, for personal information or for photos/videos of you, then tell an adult straight away and report them together on www.thinkuknow.co.uk.

3. ACCEPTING:

Think carefully before you click on or open something online (e.g. links, adverts, friend requests, photos) as you never know where they may lead to or they may contain viruses. Do not accept something if you are unsure of who the person is or what they’ve sent you.

4. RELIABLE:

You cannot trust everything you see online, as some things can be out of date, inaccurate or not entirely true. To find reliable information, compare at least three different websites, check in books and talk to someone about what you have found.

5. TELL:

Tell a trusted adult if something or someone ever makes you feel upset, worried or confused. This could be if you or someone you know is being bullied online. There are lots of people who will be able to help you, like your teachers, parents and carers or contact Childline – 0800 11 11 or www.childline.org.uk.

6. BE SMART WITH A HEART:

Remember to always be smart with a heart by being kind and respectful to others online. Make the internet a better place by helping your friends if they are worried or upset by anything that happens online.
