Good morning Ganymede class,
I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas break and have stayed safe. Unfortunately we can't be back learning together as normal, so until it is safe, I would like you to complete the work set.
Please complete all work in your home learning journal and remember that perfect presentation!
Start with 15 minutes on TTrockstars
WALT: Adding and subtracting multiples of 100 to/from 3-digit numbers
Today we are going to do a quick recap from last term to see how fantastic you are.
Use the link below to complete your quiz and the watch the video. After you have done this, please complete the worksheet in your home learning pack.
Words with the /i/ spelling
Write each word down three times and write a sentence for each word. Ask someone if your house to help you test the spelling.
Over the next few days, we will write lots of different creative responses to the new ‘lockdown’ situation. Some of us will be going into school and some of us will be staying at home. It’s been a pretty strange time so far but, in the end, everything will go back to how things were but, hopefully, we’ll all be a bit wiser.
Put your pieces of writing together in your writing journal.
5 ways to keep yourself amused in lockdown:
Have you found any unusual or interesting ways to keep yourself amused during lockdown?
Here are twelve things that you can do at home. Put them in an order with the most interesting at the top and the least interesting at the bottom. Then add things that you like doing that I've missed out. Think about things that you really like doing and really hold your attention and select 5 to write about:
• reading comics • watching TV
• computer games • looking out of the window
• cooking • writing stories
• playing with lego • painting or drawing
• talking to the cat/dog/baby brother, etc • whistling
• staring at the ceiling daydreaming • playing board games
Here are the 5 ideas that I have had. What ideas have you got? You can use the way that I have written my ideas to write yours, if you want. The hard bit is to make each idea different. I ve tried to list unusual ways to keep amused.
Listen to an audio recording of the ideas below here:
• You can apply to the Guinness Book of Records for the world record as child couch potato.
• You can try surfing TV channels, and see if you can keep up with the plot of 5 programmes at the same time.
• When it rains, you can play raindrop races by betting on which drop will reach the bottom of the window pane first.
• You can train the spider that lives in the plughole to be an acrobat and develop skills as an arachnid trapeze artist.
• You can draw anything from a Gruffalump eating a cheese pasty to a Hippocrampus that is stuck in a drain.
Writing tip: make each idea different and avoid repetition or the reader might get bored. Surprise the reader so each idea is a totally new suggestion.
Read a book from your book bag, or from home if you prefer.
Can you write a description of what you have read using the following points:
The main character
The setting of the book
What has happened so far?
Can you ask your grown up to help you understand any tricky words. Write them down so you can remember them.
Do this at the back of your book as we always do. Take your time and do one line of each word.
