This week, we are going to use the lessons on the Oak national academy for Maths. The lessons are suitable for following on your phone, table or computer and you just need a pencil and paper. When the teacher asks you to write something down or work something out, try to set it out neatly and keep your digits lined up just like we do with the squares in our maths books. The lesson will usually include:
When you have done the lesson, you could take a photo of your work and upload it onto purple mash.
Y4 - today’s lesson is on choosing appropriate addition strategies by Mrs Crane. You can find it here.
Y3 – today’s lesson is on adding and subtracting multiples of 100 with Miss Brinkworth. You can find it here. If you can’t see the independent task, you can see it if you pause the video just after the blue screen where it says pause for the independent task.
Today you are going to use your notes from Tuesday to write an explanation text for the Ancient Crime squad. The bullet points you wrote yesterday should help you to know what to include in your sentences. Each heading with its bullet points will build into one paragraph with your sentences linked together.
For example, I could use my first three bullet points to write 3 sentences:
Who was Tutankhamen?
Who was Tutankhamen?
Tutankhamen was a boy pharaoh who became pharaoh in 1332 BC. He was the son of Akhenaten. He became pharaoh when he was just 9 years old.
You can borrow my first three sentences to get you started if you like. You are aiming to write a really detailed paragraph for each heading, somewhere between 3- 7 sentences. This takes time to do well so aim to spend 30-40 minutes writing today and then you can finish off tomorrow. If you found it tricky to do a good plan, you might like to use one of these great examples from two of our Y3 children to get you started on your writing:
When you get to paragraph 3, this is where you might need some crime report language. Try using some of these words:
Take a photo of today’s work and upload it to purple mash even if you haven’t finished your report.
Phonics / Handwriting / Spelling
Phonics group – use the phase three spelling activity page 4, ur spelling activity. Use a sheet with lines on to help practise writing the letters –ur correctly and then put the letter pattern into some words. Can you tell your adult all the sounds on the sound mat?
No nonsense spelling group – use the word list. All these words sound very similar. Can you write a sentence that shows each word being used correctly.
Spend some time reading with an adult. Record in your reading record. Or read one of the books allocated to you on Active Learn.
Choose a skill you need to practise on Daily ten. Y3, use level 3. Y4, use level 4. If you find it too easy or too hard, adjust to the next level up or down. Allow yourself at least 15 seconds to jot down your answers or choose manual if you need more time.
Practise your times table skills using multiplication skills on Purple Mash.
Practise your quickfire addition skills on hit the button. Choose number bonds and doubles.
Try the bead numbers place value investigation. Start with one bead and then build up to 2 beads and so on. How far can you go?
Y3, try place value basket ball. Use numbers up to 999.
Y4, try place value millionaire.
We have been working on striking and fielding skills. Try one or more of the tasks from the suggestions here.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
