Wednesday, 17th June

Hello everyone, 

 

I hope you are all well!

 

There was lots of rain yesterday. Did you see and hear the thunder and lightening?

 

Have a great day, 

 

Mrs T

 

 

Here are today's tasks...

                               PHONICS

 

We will continue our work on prefixes. 

 

                     

 

Prefixes are a group of letters that change the meaning of a word when they are added to the start. Most prefixes mean a similar thing when they're added to different words.

  1. un usually means not. For example, unhappy, unlocked, unfair
  2. dis and mis usually have negative meanings. For example, disagree, disobey, misbehave, mislead
  3. re usually means again or back. For example, redo, reappear, redecorate
  4. sub usually means under. For example, subheading or submarine

 

Watch the videos and take the quiz.

MATHS

 

Warm-up  

Practice your times tables on Hit the Button. These are so important and will help you in so many areas of maths so it's really important that we are good at them.

Main session

We will continue to look at money and will now focus on comparing different amounts of money. We have already done work to compare numbers using the following symbols: < = >  You will be doing exactly the same but applying the skill to money. Remember the wider part is where the bigger number is. We also use the vocabulary less than, greater than and equal to. 

 

If you can, with permission and the help of a parent, try to look at real notes and coins. You can also look at this document to help you:

 

 

Afterwards I would like you to try the sheet attached below and check your work against the answers.

Remember, you can either print it, write the answers out or discuss them with a family member.

 

CHALLENGE

If your child finds the White Rose sheet fairly easy I have also attached an additional problem solving activity. As that suggests the questions are more tricky, take time and are to extend learning further. They get more difficult as you work through them. The answers are also provided to support you to review the work.

LITERACY

 

I hope you enjoyed learning about Nelson Mandela yesterday through the videos and power point. I saw some fantastic mind maps, you have learnt lots!

 

I would like you to use that information to create a mini biography about Nelson Mandela and his life. I have attached a sheet and a word mat below to help you. Remember, you don't need to print these out, you can just write it onto a piece of paper. 

 

You may like to review the videos and power point from yesterday to support you along with your mind map.

TOPIC

 

Today will be our last day learning about staying safe near water.

 

I would like you to create your own poster to share the message of staying safe near water. I have added some examples with some key messages below. Use the learning and work that you have done over the last 2 days to help you.
