English

To text map the main events in the story.

Today we are going to listen to the video version of the story again and whilst listening, write notes of the main parts of the story. Think carefully about the movements of the characters in the story and gather ideas for a text map of the story.

Story Retell –

  • First Percy collected some string.
  • Then he walked with his friend along the path to the maze.
  • The other animals followed him to the maze.
  • Percy tided and cleaned the maze.
  • The animals fell asleep in the maze on the stone bench.
  • Percy played a trick on the other animals.
  • The squirrel collected up all the string.
  • The animals and Percy were all stuck in the maze.

For the remainder of today’s lesson, you are going to create your own text map of the story. Use the bullet points above, along with your own knowledge of the story to create your own text map. Here is my map for you to use.

 

Maths

Starter: To make jottings of three digit numbers, focusing on place value.

Main Lesson: To use standard units to measure length and height.

Today we are going to measure length and height using a ruler or tape measure. If you don’t have a tape measure or a ruler, then you can make a measuring tape using an A4 piece of paper. Cut a strip about 3cm wide along the length of a piece of A4, then you can use this to compare. The strip will measure 21cm so you can see whether your items measure more or less than the 21cm. To challenge yourself, see if you can use the strip to estimate the length of the items using 21cm as a guide.

Watch the video to find out more about today’s learning.

Parents and Carers, please be aware, the videos are posted to YouTube, and linked to the website for the children to use.  Due to the restrictions on the YouTube page, we cannot control the adverts which appear at the end of the videos.  Please supervise your child, as you see necessary, when watching the clips.  Many Thanks.

Then collect items from outside, leaves, stones, sticks, petals and use the ruler to measure the different items you have found. If you don’t have a way of measuring using a ruler or tape measure, compare the length of the items using a strip from a piece of paper. Record the measure in your books and don’t forget your unit of measure when recording.

Record the measure in your books and don’t forget your unit of measure when recording.

Blue and Purple:

Today you are going to collect items from outside, leaves, stones, sticks, petals. Once you have collected the items, place the items in order from the shortest to the longest. Repeat with other items you find. Remember to use the correct vocabulary when ordering, including:

Spellings

Tigers

Today you are going to add to the list of homophones you can see here. Homophones are pairs of words which sound the same but are spelt differently and have a different meaning. For example, sea and see are homophones, they sound the same but have a different meaning and a different spelling.

There are lots of homophones, see if you can write more homophones in the list – remember to spell these correctly and verbally use them in the correct context.

eight, ate

allowed, aloud

See if you can find any more. Good Luck!

RE

To understand what we mean by belonging.

We have been learning all about baptism and what baptism symbolises for Christians. Baptism means we are welcoming a new Christian into the faith and welcoming them into God’s family. What does it mean to belong? What do we belong to? Think about all the places we might belong to and write about each one. This might be swimming lessons, dancing, cubs, brownies, church, school. How do we feel like we belong and how are we made to feel special?
