Rise and shine,

 

Day 3 here we go! The last day of the first week. Give yourself a pat on the back!

 

A quick shout out to a few of our fellow Ganymede learners:

WOW! What a day it was yesterday - A big well done to Amelia, Lydia, Lily, Ayla, Georgina and Lola-Marie. You all logged in and hopefully did some lovely learning. Thank you to those who have sent through some photos of your learning. I love seeing your learning, keep them coming. 

 

 

Home learning photos so far - send your photos in so you can feature in the picture slide show.

Please complete all work in your home learning journal and remember that perfect presentation!

 

Get your Home Learning Journal ready by writing today's long date and underlining it using a ruler.  Don't forget to write the learning title, like Maths, to separate your learning tasks!

 

Let's start the day with some brain exercise - How many challenges can you complete today? 


Shake It Off with The KIDZ BOP Kids - Part 2

So here's the second part of the dance from yesterday. I hope you can remember the first part so you can begin to put the dance together.

Maths

 

Mental Maths

Start with your 2x tables booklet. Ask an adult to set a timer for 2min. Try and do as many as you can. Keep your score as I will be asking for them tomorrow so I can update the score sheet. I know you can do it. 4o club all round!

 

Fluent in 5

Time yourself for 5 minutes - Can you solve the 4 mixed number calculations? Show your workings in your Home Learning Journal.

 

On your marks, get set and go!

WALT: solve 'more than' and 'fewer than' word problems using addition and subtraction

 

  • Pupils can use concrete materials to represent items in a problem.

  • Pupils can draw a bar model to represent a number of items in a problem.

  • Pupils can label all parts of the bar model with numbers and words.

  • Pupils can determine what information is missing from a bar model.

  • Pupils can apply addition and subtraction strategies from the chapter to bar model scenarios, including the number bond and column methods.

  • Pupils can use the part–whole bar model method for addition and subtraction.

  • Pupils can use the comparison bar model method for addition and subtraction.

 

Begin by looking at the slides below to review our prior learning.   As you work through the slides record your calculations in your Home Learning Journal.  Remember to line the digits up carefully in columns.

 

Let's go. Pause the slideshow as you need to.

When you have finished go to the link below to do your work book questions -

Word-pictures – using similes 


We are going to look at similies today. Similes are really useful when you write because they help the reader picture and get a better understanding of what you are writing about. There are two types like and as , for example: It was as small as a grain of wheat.                                      

                His hands were like claws
 Everyone has heard of the simile as quiet as a mouse . In this activity, you have to create new endings so that instead of as quiet as a mouse , you think of something else really quiet, for example, as quiet as a thief s whisper in a library .  Can you make up new similes by completing the following: 
 
as loud as                                                                  as red as

as large as                                                                 as small as 
as tall as                                                                    as blue as

as soft as                                                                   as tough as 
 
Let's have some fun by inventing a list of new, crazy similes. They don't have to make sense as you are just playing with the idea. Choose an animal that you like and describe it using invented and silly similes. You could describe your animal's eyes, ears, tail, paws, claws and teeth. 

  My crazy cat has                      

eyes like red buses, ears like police cars, a tail like a computer mouse, paws like telegraph poles, claws like crisp packets and teeth like rotten bananas.

 

                            My crazy cat has                                                                  

                            eyes like red buses,                                 

                            ears like police cars,

                            a tail like a computer mouse,

                            paws like telegraph poles,

                            claws like crisp packets

                            and teeth like rotten bananas.      


 
Now try writing your own poem.

You may choose your own animal but it must be exactly the same poem but use similes of your own.

 

Remember that:

yes each similie must be on its own line

yes at the end of each sentence must be a comma unless its the last line

yes include like a in every sentence

yes draw a picture of your animal 

 

Writing tip:  If you are writing a playful list, then it can be fun to write a crazy simile. If you are trying to say what things are really like, then the simile has to work.  Remember what we said earlier: there are two types of simile like and as . A simile is a comparison. It is when you say two different things are similar.
