If you do not have a ruler, you can print off the paper rulers attached below.

Remember to make sure that the item you are measuring is lined up with 0 on the ruler. If an object is a length between two intervals (i.e. between 7cm and 8 cm) then write the number it is closest to.

 

To extend – measure how long an item is in cm and mm.

Spelling rule

Today’s spelling rule is words ending in –tion. Please see the spelling video on Seesaw in your child’s personal journal.

Literacy task

Diary entry

 

Imagine you are Mr Grinling. You are going to write a diary entry for one of the days from the story. Think about which day you could write about, what events happen and how Mr Grinling is feeling.

 

Here is an example:

 

Dear diary,

What a frustrating day I have had! It started like any other. I woke up early to the happily tweeting birds outside my cottage window, dressed in my work gear and made my way over to the lighthouse. There had been a storm yesterday so the light needed extra cleaning as it was covered in sea water. After a whole morning of working hard, I was really looking forward to my lunch (Mrs Grinling had promised me the most amazing feast). Then, disaster. Three scavenging seagulls swooped down on the basket carrying my lunch and ate it, every last crumb! I shouted and hollered at them to leave my food alone but they took not the slightest notice of me. I could not believe what had happened. My stomach was as empty as a bucket with a hole in. It felt like hours until it was time to row back home. Luckily Mrs Grinling had also seen what had happened and made extra for my dinner. It managed to cheer me up a little but I was still furious with those pesky pests. Mrs Grinling has said that she will tie a napkin onto the basket tomorrow. Thank goodness, as I am not sure I could survive another day without any lunch.

 

Reading comprehension:

Purple Mash book – I Wish I Was a Fish

Set as a 2do. Read chapter 3 and complete chapter 3 quiz.

Maths task

Warm Up

Choose different two or three digit numbers and partition them. See how many you can complete in one minute.

 

Main task

Today you are going to be working on telling the time. You will be reading the time on an analogue clock and converting to a digital clock.

Analogue clocks are clocks with hands; digital clocks only have numbers.

 

Go through these with your child before they complete the workbook page.

O’clock – 00 minutes

Quarter past – 15 minutes

Half past – 30 minutes

Quarter to – 45 minutes

 

Now complete p 35 in your workbook.

 

Use the game below to help your child’s understanding. Choose whichever level is most appropriate.

Task

Literacy Task

Your task today is to describe the most revolting sandwich that you would use to deter those pesky seagulls.  Have a listen to the story ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ by Gareth Edwards to get some ideas.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWfw29sz6ps  

 

Write a paragraph to describe your sandwich using lots of adjectives e.g. minty toothpaste mixed with slimy slugs, sprinkled with stinky, mouldy cheese.

 

When you have finished writing about your sandwich, draw a picture of it at the bottom.  You can use the sheet below in the documents section.

 

Reading comprehension:

Purple Mash book – I Wish I Was a Fish

Set as a 2do. Read chapter 4 and complete chapter 4 quiz.

Maths task

Starter

Look at picture 1.  Decide what coins you could use to pay for each item.

 

Telling the time

Look at the clock in picture 2.  When the minute (long) hand is in the right half of the clock, we say minutes past the hour and when it is in the left part, the time is closer to the next hour so we say minutes to the hour. Look at the clock in picture 3.  We write this time in digital as 2:50 because 50 minutes have gone past 2 o’clock.  However, when we say the time we tend to say how many minutes until the next hour.  As there are 60 minutes in an hour, and 50 minutes have gone past, we can easily work out how many minutes are left until the next hour.  60 – 50 = 10, so we say ten to four. 

 

Now try

Page 35 in your workbook

To support – use the following interactive clock tool with an adult or older sibling.  They can say a time for you to make on either the analogue or digital clock face.  Start with o’clock, half past and quarter past times.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/time/teaching-clock

To extend – use the above interactive clock for all times to and past the hour.

Spelling rule

Spend 5 minutes on this week’s spelling rule. 

Science

Energy Experts

Look through the attached PowerPoint to find out more about energy.

We would like you to spend some time being ‘Energy Experts’.  Have a look around your home and make a note of things that use energy.  You could take photos and put them into a photo collage.  Once you have done this, think about ways in which you could reduce the amount of energy used.  For example: -

  • Could your washing be hung out to dry instead of using a tumble dryer?
  • Could you cycle or walk somewhere instead of using a car?
  • Make an extra special effort to turn lights and appliances such as TVs off when you are not using them.

You do not need to write anything down for this activity, but you can keep a note of how you have managed to save energy if you would like to.

Task

Literacy task

Today and next week we would like you to write the story of ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ in your own words.  Perhaps you would like to fold some A4 pieces of paper to make a booklet.  Today we would like you to write an introduction to the story.  You might wish to rewatch the story to remind you how the author introduced the story.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46wCRq50Wwg

 

Your introduction should include: -

  • A brief setting description – where is the story taking place?
  • An introduction to the character of Mr Grinling – what does he do?
  • An introduction to the character of Mrs Grinling – what does she do?

(you may wish to use your character descriptions that you wrote on Tuesday to help with this.)

 

You can add an illustration or two to go with your introduction.

 

Reading comprehension:

Purple Mash book – I Wish I Was a Fish

Set as a 2do. Read chapter 5 and complete chapter 5 quiz.

Maths task

 Starter

Have a go at estimating a minute with an adult.  Count for 60 seconds and when you think a minute is up say ‘stop’.  The adult can time your estimate and tell you how far off a minute you actually were.

 

Telling the time

A television channel is showing back-to-back cartoons for an hour with no adverts! Each cartoon lasts ten minutes. The cartoon hour starts at five o’clock in the evening. How many cartoons do you think they will show in the hour? Try to work it out using whatever maths/diagrams you need.  Then have a look at picture 1.  This shows 6 clock faces 10 minutes apart.

6 x 10 minutes = 60 minutes (1 hour)

Or 60 minutes ÷ 10 minutes = 6

 

Now try

Page 36 in your workbooks

To support – As you are adding 10 minutes, you could use a hundred square (picture 3) to help with adding ten, but remember not to go beyond 60 as 60 minutes takes you to the next hour!

To extend – page 37 in your workbooks

There is also a mastery checkpoint to do if you fancy a challenge! (picture 2)

Spelling rule

Test spelling knowledge. This can be done reading out the words or dictating a sentence containing the word in for the child to write. If they are writing a sentence, remind your child to be accurate with punctuation and use their best handwriting. 

Music

Log onto your Charanga account at  https://berkshire.charanga.com/ and select step 3.  Pick and choose from the activities down the right hand side.  Again, the songs we have learnt this year are towards the bottom if you would like to listen to and sing along with them.

RE

Last week we researched the city of Mecca, and we found out that Muslims aim to make a journey to Mecca at least once in their lifetime.

 

Read through the attached PowerPoint to find out more about the special journey.

 

Next watch the following cartoon to find out more about what the journey to Mecca might be like https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9vcd2p
