Good Morning Ruby Class!
I hope that you have all had a wonderful weekend! Welcome to our next week of home learning. We have so many exciting activities to do this week! So, what are we doing today? Let's find out...
Learning Objective: I can order groups of objects.
We have been identifying 'greater than' and 'less than' and using symbols to show this between two numbers. E.g. 36 > 9. Today, we are going to look at what happens when there are more than two numbers. How can we begin to show which numbers are 'greater' or 'less' than the others? Let's find out...
Select four groups of objects. This can be anything! Just make sure that each group has a different amount. Then create your own table and order your groups from 'least' to 'greater' just like in the video. Once you have done this, order your groups again from 'greatest' to 'smallest'.
Have a go at solving these problems by ordering groups of objects!
Parents: There are lots of great prompts and questions to encourage and extend your child's learning!
Learning Objective: I understand what a shape poem is.
Last week we did some incredible work in English using adjectives to describe Antarctica! This week, we will be using these adjectives again to write our very own shape poems about Antarctica!
Find out by watching this video...
Can you find a shape poem about Antarctica? Or perhaps one of the physical features of Antarctica like an iceberg. Maybe you have book at home with poems in it or you could research shape poems on the internet with an adult. If you find one, send it to me and we will share it with the rest of the class!
Learning Objective: I am learning about 'ou' saying 'ow'.
Today, we will be focusing on an alternative pronunciation of 'ou'. To find out more, let's head over to our favourite Geraldine the Giraffe...!
Today our activity will focus on practicing this alternative pronunciation of 'ou'. Below, you will find some cards with both 'ou' and 'ow' words on them. Although each word has the same sound when they are pronounced, they are spelt differently. Can you read each word and sort them by this spelling? Simply place them on the correct poster.
Choose three words from each poster and write them in a sentence. Read these sentences out loud to an adult or sibling and focus on pronouncing the correct 'ou' sound.
Learning Objective: I am learning about Christianity.
We are continuing our whole-school Christianity project. Follow this link to find out what we are learning about this week...
Learning Objective: I can explore different types of music.
I hope that you all enjoyed your music lesson last week! I loved hearing about all of your favourite songs and how you described them! Today, we are going to be focusing on one song all together as a class. Find out more here...
Listen to 'Spring' by Vivaldi again (there is a link below) then create a picture based on the music. Think about the following questions...
As you know, Vivaldi wrote a piece of music for each season. Select another season and imagine what the music might sound like. Then, listen to it! Were you right? Perhaps you could create another picture based on this second song.
