English: We have started writing our myths based on the plans we did last week. We wrote our first paragraph where we introduced our main character.
Reading: Have a go at reading the following text and answer the questions at the end.
Maths: In maths, we revised using inverse to check our answers.
Science: In science we observed and learnt how objects move on different surfaces. We opted for 3 different surfaces – rubber, sandpaper and carpet. We pushed a car down the 3 different surfaces and measured how far it travelled. We concluded that carpet had the most friction as the car travelled the least. There is an attached video link for you to see and learn a bit more about the experiment we did in the class today.
Handwriting: In handwriting today, we practised our joint handwriting. We practised writing the spelling words (homophones) for this week. Why don’t you have a go at writing a page of these words at home?
Reading: Read the following text and have a go at answering the questions at the end.
PSHE: In PSHE we were learning more about bullying and we learnt who bystanders are. They are the ones who witness (sees) bullying. We then discussed if we were to witness bullying, what can we do to help.
Today in English we learned the story ‘King Midas and the golden touch’. We watched a clip, put the story main parts in order, then practiced retelling it. Below is the clip for you to watch and the story parts to put in order.
In maths, we carried on looking at column subtraction. You can watch the link below to learn a bit more then try some questions for yourself!
Research the Ancient Greeks homes, food, clothes and jobs. Find out what was similar to our life today and what was different.
Read the passage below from our book ‘Helping Hercules’, then answer the four questions.
Today we explored using magnets, found out about their poles and when magnets attract (pull together) and repel (pull apart). Research magnets and their poles. Try to create a diagram to show when magnets attract and repel.
We started by revisiting different ways to spell the ‘igh’ sound. Can you tell which words are spelled incorrectly? Write the correct spellings.
Then we looked at these homophones. Check you know what they mean and practise them.
Today we went over how to form our capital and lower case letters. In phonics, we were looking at the ‘igh’ sound so we also practised how we join letters which make that sound. Practise your handwriting at home.
In our maths meeting, we tried these questions all about ‘a half’. Try these questions.
