Literacy

In preparation for our newspaper writing, today we are going to be looking at alliteration. Alliteration is when words, close together in a sentence, starts with the same sound.

Use the pictures cards below (you can view these on the screen to save you from printing them out) and group them into objects with the same starting sound. Then pick a sound and make up silly sentences using the objects, to show alliteration. Repeat as many times as you can.

Before Christmas we read two class stories by Michael Murpurgo: Born to Run and Escape from Shangri-La.

Using the shared writing checklist, share write three sentences about these books. What did you like about the stories? What was your favourite part? What was your list favourite part? Would you recommend it to a friend and why?

Times Tables Rockstars

In the meantime, practise your times tables by using any of the following activities:

- roll two dice together and multiply the numbers together. Then write the inverse division calculation.

- with a pack of cards pick two cards and multiply the numbers together. Then write the inverse calculation.

- Pick a domino and multiply the two numbers on it. Then write the inverse calculation.

Numeracy

OUTDOOR LEARNING OPPORTUNITY!

This week we have been learning to calculate the perimeter of

shapes. Today, we would like you to create those shapes with given perimeters. Below is a list of measurements. You need to create two different shapes which has that measurement.

You can do this in a variety of ways: drawing lines on the computer, drawing lines on a piece of paper, drawing with chalk on the pavement in your garden (check with your parents first), use sticks you have found in the garden or outside to put together, use washing line pegs (ask your parents first) use string, paperclips etc.

The measurements are:

16cm, 18cm, 20cm, 24cm, 28cm

Remember, send your pictures into firclass@manea.cambs.sch.uk

Over learning of words

In any way you can, in chalk on the ground outside, spelt in pasta shapes, whiteboard and pen, in sand etc, copy and write the following words 5 times:

said

where

what

see

she

Spellings

Group 3 spellings have increased to 10 spellings each week. This week these are: gail, nail, tail, aim, rail, jail, paint, faint, train, main.

PE

This half term our PE sport would have been netball. It won't be possible now to carry out our PE lessons in quite the same way, but some of the skills you could potentially practise at home. The link attached goes through the shoulder pass. Have a go with a netball (or a ball of a similar size) at the shoulder pass in your garden or in an outdoor space you can use. It would help if you had a partner. Otherwise, prepare to do a lot of running!
