Warm up: We have been thinking about embedded clauses in our starters.

LO: To measure weight.
Start by practising your seven times tables.
Warm-up: Can you solve this problem which requires you to convert between analogue and digital clocks?
Main: What do we know about measuring weight already? The unit we are most likely to use whilst measuring weight is grams. Play the game I have linked below to practise reading weighing scales.
Use today’s session to explore weight. Can you weigh five different things in grams from around your home? Order them in weight. If you do not have scales, estimate the weight. Or you could look on the back of ingredients for their weight. Can you find four objects which when combined weigh exactly 1kg? Remember 1 kg= 1000g.

LO: To explore a local habitat.
Explore a local habitat and note down all of the living things you see. Keep a tally chart.

Whilst there- consider the different danger to the environment.
