Happy Tuesday everyone . A quick hello to Manerva who said 'Hi' on yesterday's register. It is great to see so many of you still accessing the learning from the website - it would be good to know how you found the new learning on co-ordinates so let me know when you click on the register today if you have any questions or comments.
You can also get in touch using our class email - firstname.lastname@example.org - parents and carers can also send messages using this address. I will reply to all emails and will give a special shout out to the first person to use our class account.
Our Battle on TT Rockstars is going well and the scores at 8.30 this morning were Oberon: 8, 854 vs Callisto: 12, 032. There are still some children yet to join the battle so it would be good to see everyone login today and add to our total. As a mini challenge work out the difference between out scores and add it to today's register.
Please remember to present your work in you Home Learning Journal neatly which means:
use the long date each day
underline the date and sub-headings for each area of learning with a ruler
use a joined handwriting style and maintain your neatest handwriting.
Choose a link to follow for a PE lesson with Joe Wick - I tried it yesterday and found the 'duck walk' very challenging! Still my grandma always told me practice makes perfect so I will be logging in again tomorrow to see if I can do better. Let me know on the register which move you found most challenging.

Start you learning today with 10 minutes on TT Rockstars.
Today's learning focuses on 'Translation'. Translation in maths simply means to move a shape from one point to another. Watch the youtube clip below to see how translate simple shapes.

Look at the Let's Learn slides below to see how our friends have translated a more challenging shapes. In the first sentence our friends describe the translation using the language of left and right, up and down. In the same way that co-ordinates are given in the order of x axis first then y axis we try to describe the translations in the same order.
Try the Guided Practice activity in your Home Learning Journal - remember focus on the point you are moving and describe the translation by saying how many squares it move left or right and then how many squares up or down. Initially each point is moving using the same instructions but the translation is different for each point because their starting point is different. When you have moved point A can you move each other point of the shape in the same way to identify the new co-ordinates for the shape.
Take a look at the picture below before trying to complete the sentence challenges below. You will need to draw on your understanding of figurative language and sentence structure to help you with today's learning
|Sentence Challenge - Can you write five sentences using a simile or metaphor?||Sick Sentences - Can you improve these boring sentences?|
Can you think of similes or metaphors to describe the cat?
Remember a simile would compares part of the cat to
something else using 'like' or 'as' and a
metaphor would compare part of the cat to something else
by saying it was something else
Try focusing on parts of the cat e.g. eyes, fur, whiskers,
tail, nose, claws or ears
For an extra challenge focus on how the cat moves or pounces
The cat waited in the shadows.
She looked around the room with her eyes.
Her whiskers twitched.
Read the next installment of Edge of Extinction - draw a picture of what you imagine is 'peering at them from the gloom of the pine bough.'
Follow the link below to practice spelling words ending in -able or -ible - if you are able to try playing one the games to practice your words.
If you cannot access the site practice spelling the following words - show how many syllables are in each word or use each word in a sentence of your own
Take a look at the word of the day - how many sentences can you write using the word 'luminous' in 5 minutes. Maybe you could link the word of the day to the Cat's Eyes image from the English lesson. Share your best sentence on the register and I will add it to Wednesday's page.
Topic - Art
In art earlier this term you explored animals and how they use camouflage to blend into their surroundings. Use the sheet below to create a newly discovered wild animal. If you don't have a dice available choose your favourite parts to create your animal. Can you draw a picture of it in natural habitat using colour and pattern to ensure it blends into its surrounding.
