EARLY MORNING ACTIVITIES
PE - Time to wake up!
SPELLINGS - New section in your book with the heading of 'spellings' please.
Today is your speed spell day. Remember, you are trying to beat last weeks score. Set a timer of 1 minute for each word, and see how many times you can write the word correctly in that minute. Then move onto the next word. At the end, count up how many words you have spelled correctly and send me your score. Milly and Paige have both done this and I have recorded their scores to see if they can beat it each week.
Start with TTRockstars and then your Times Tables booklet, then fluent in 5
Today we are going to start looking at using the formal method for dividing 3- digit numbers by a 1- digit number.
Look at the problem below.
There are many ways that we can solve this. Have a go. How many methods can you find? What is the calculation that you need?
Use the place value counters - https://mathsbot.com/manipulatives/placeValueCounters
Watch the video under the learning to see Mrs I model Method 1.
What have our friends done here? What is happening? Where is the -900 coming from?
To see Mrs I's explanation - watch the video below.
Then complete these questions, using your method.
Today we are reading another 'Moon' poem. Have a read.
The moon has no light of its own.
It's cold and dark and dead as stone,
But it catches light from the burning sun
And shows itself
When each day is done.
Lillian M. Fisher
Now answer the following questions
Write down all the adjectives that are used in the poem?
How does the poet feel about the moon? Give evidence to support your answer?
Can you write your own short poem about the moon?
ENGLISH - New section with the title of 'English' and LO written please.
LO: I am learning to use an apostrophe for possession.
1st of all, have a go at imitating your paragraph from 'The haunted house.' You should know this really well by now so should barely need to use either the text, or your story map. See of you can do it without looking and then send me a video.
Lat week, we recapped on how to use an apostrophe for contraction. Today, we are going to learn how to use it for possession. This means 'it belongs to.' Watch the video below to deepening your understanding, and then have a go at the sheet.
This afternoon, we are going to get creative again. Today we are going to be looking at an artist called Peter Thorpe. Peter is renowned for his abstract space art. Below are examples of his work, and work inspired by him.
Today I would like to you to choose your favourite picture and then comment on it.
Answer the following points:
What is it?
What do you like?
What do you think?
What puzzles you?
What do you dislike?
Remember - you completed a similar task, with our Roger Dean work.
Here was the model answer to help you:
This is a piece of art by the Artist Roger Dean. I very much like this picture because I really like the tones of blue that the artist has used. I also really like the image of the twisted castle. It makes me wonder who is lurking in the shadows of the picture. I also wonder who lives there; do they live alone? Or is there a community?
