Handwriting

Tuesday

Today I want you to work really hard at sloping your writing slightly to the right. Page 25 encourages you to do this in the EXTRA section. Keep trying the words until you are happy with your joins.

 

Extension

If you feel you have done really well with your joins, you could move on to the EXTENSION section at the bottom of page 25. This section is demonstrating words within sentences. Little and often is best to improve your handwriting. Keep working hard! I bet your writing looks amazing at the end of your practice.

English

The teaching video is in the video centre. 

 

Today we are learning about imperative verbs and we will be using these type of verbs in our instructions.

First, click on the link to watch a short bitesize video clip. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zv98jhv

Next, watch the teaching video by Miss Cropper. The activity will be explained in this video but you can use this week’s power point to assist you aswell.

Your task is to put the jumbled instructions back together in the correct time order. You can cut out the instructions and glue them in the correct order OR wrte out the instructions.

Then, underline all the imperative verbs.

Warm Up

Practise division facts using a game in class or Hit The Button at home

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Remember to click division facts today and not x tables!

Let’s choose 8’s today and see how confident we are! If you are really confident with this today, choose another one that you are less confident with and practise that too! If you are confident with them all, try your TTRS or a mix on Hit The Button.

 

Main Activity

Today we are learning about using and applying our learning about pounds and pence.

Please watch the video lesson.

Please work through the Tuesday Power Point to make sure you understand what was mentioned in the video.

Complete the Tuesday activity. This can be printed out or write answers in your home learning book. Please don’t copy all of the questions out, just write your answers. Use any jottings and methods you would like to work out your answers in your book too, just like we do at school!

Check your work alongside the answers.

Extension

Can you make up these amounts using pounds and pence? Draw the amounts in your books.

£17.56, £42.87, £29.27, £38.91, £72.76

Geography

LO: To explore UK human features

Landmarks in each country. Izzygram (oddizzi reference - UK)

https://www.oddizzi.com/teachers/explore-the-world/country-close-up/united-kingdom/landscape/

 

Work your way through the power point below (up to slide 8) explaining the difference between physical and human features.

 

1. Create a mind map – what human features can you think of in the UK? You could use the Internet to help you. Remember you would start in the middle of your paper with the label Human Features and then create the arms outwards. (See the document below example of a mind map)

 

2. Choose one of the landmarks – Stone Henge, Angel of the North, Cardiff Castle, The Kelpies, Carrickfergus Castle. Use google maps to find where in the country it is. Read some information given about each landmark.

 

3. Create an information card summarising what you have found out about your landmark.

RE

LO: To explore why Christians like to pray. (This is continued from last week)

Last week we looked at how and why Christians pray.

Today children we are going to look at a prayer that is very important to Christians.

Read this prayer below.

Have a go at re-writing this prayer in child friendly language, so that you could chat to someone else about it and teach them to understand what bits of it mean. Very often there is a message in religious writing. Can you find the message?

PE

We need to be keeping as fit as we can be. As well as your walks and bike rides, try something new. If you have a scooter this is a great activity to keep you fit. I know someone in Year 3 has a pogo stick! I wonder if you are managing more bounces now!

Below are some suggested activities that may help you think of ideas. Consider using a fitness app or a fitness channel and get the whole family to join in.
