Start the week by having a go at today's flashback 4.
Today we are learning about turns and angles. Face a wall and make a full turn. Where do you end up? Now have a go at a half turn. Then try quarter turns. How many quarter turns make a full turn? A turn means to rotate on a point. An angle measures the amount of a turn and we measure this in degrees (º). A full turn is 360º. Can you work out how many degrees half a turn is? Or a quarter turn?
Today we are looking specially at right angles. This is where the turn is exactly 90º. What fraction of a full turn is this? Can you find the right angles in these letters. You might want to write them out bigger to help you.

Can you find some right angles around your house? If you're not sure, cut out the angle eater below to check. Share what you find on the blog!
This week we are starting a new unit called 'The Stone Trolls' by Dean Thompson. By the end of the unit you will write your own troll story. Start by reading the background information to learn a bit more to help you understand the story. Then spend some time reading or listening to the story. We would then like you to draw a story map or make up actions to help you remember the key parts.
Today we will be focusing on joining the prefixes 'un' and 'de'. Warm up your hands and then practice writing these joins. What other words can you think of with these prefixes. Write them in sentences.
Bravery and Resilience
What do the words 'bravery' and 'resilience'mean? This week we would like you to show your bravery and challenge yourself. This could be trying something new or something that you find tricky. You may need to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Discuss with an adult or older sibling what this means to you and find a suitable challenge. Discuss how it might feel pushing yourself out of your comfort zone but also why it is important to do this. There are times in school where you show resilience. It may be trying a sport or activity that you find difficult; answering a question in class where you might not feel confident, or even asking for help. Think about where have you shown resilience in school? How did it make you feel?
Have a look through the powerpoint below about bravery and resilience and then have a go at the worksheets. Let us know your challenge on the Purple Mash blog and update us with your progress throughout the week. Photos would also be great too!
