Money, money, money!
This week we are learning all about money in maths. Why do we need money? What coins do we use? Follow the link below to watch the video to learn about pence and pounds, then try the worksheet.
This week we will be carrying on with 'The Impossibly Possible Bookshop' unit building up to writing your own story. Once you have your characters from last week, you need to start to develop your setting. Have a go at the two activities on page 16. If you have the materials at home, you could try 'Shoe-box and flower-pot worlds'. Don't worry if you don't, you could draw and label your design.
When you have finished that, we would like you to complete the Word work – prepositions activity on page 17.
As always, we would love to see your work on the blog :)
Spelling - there, their and they're
These words are homophones (words that sound the same but have different meanings). This means that in your writing you need to look at the sentence carefully to make sure you are using the right one. Have a read of the powerpoint below and then have a go at using the correct homophone in the sentences on the worksheet. Then try writing some of your own sentences.
The picture might help to remind you of the meaning.
Before we start writing, we need to warm up those hands!. Have a go at some fingers exercises and don't forgot the wrists.
Once your hands are thoroughly warmed up we need to think about how we can get our neatest handwriting. Are you sitting on a chair at a table properly. Is your pencil sharp?
Today we would like you to have a go at the sheet below. When you have finished the task, write your own sentences using the words at the bottom of the sheet.
If you could have any super power what would it be?
When you think of a superhero, what do you think of? Is it someone like Spiderman or Wonder Woman? Or is there someone that you think might be a real life superhero? Over the past few months, there have been thousands of people who have worked like superheros to keep us safe and the country going. From nurses and doctors; teachers in school for key workers; delivery drivers making sure people had food; shop workers working hard to put food on the shelves and many, many more! They have all worked so hard and shown true superpower qualities!
We are going to be designing our own superheros to create our own superhero comic. The first thing we need to do is look at what different superheros look like. What is their superpower? With an adult, look at different pictures of superheros. You might even find some in books.
To help you draw your superhero look at the powerpoint below. These are some well known superheros but you could change the design to fit your superhero. You might want to base it on a real life superhero. You need to think carefully about your choices of colour and the material of their outfit - what would be suitable for a superhero? Do they need any accessories? We would like you to draw your superhero, label the parts and do some writing to explain your choices.
What do you think the important qualities of a superhero are? What makes them special? You could also explain this on your design.
Now, you need to begin to think about your story. Is there another character? Is it a villain or could you have a squad of superheros. If so, you need to repeat this process to create more characters.
You may like to use the sheet below to help you.
We can't wait to see your superheros!
