Maths

Don't forget to keep practising your times tables. Why not start your maths today by spending 5 mins on one of the times tables games on the resources page?

We are continuing with our work on fractions that we started before half term. Today we are looking at equivalent fractions. Equivalent means the 'worth the same'. So, for example:  1/2 is equivalent to 2/4.

Watch the video first, then have a go at the questions below. If you don't have a printer or don't want to draw all the shapes out, then you could write down, how many parts you would shade.

Spellings

This week we will be learning your spellings for Week 3 from your pack.

I would like you today to create R A I N B O W  spellings (it doesn't matter if you are in group 1,2, or 3). Take a word from your spelling list and write each letter in a different colour, thinking about the order of the letters as you do it. We'll have a look at the rules on Wednesday :-)

English

For the next couple of days, I would like you to be creative. We are looking at a picture to help us write an ending of a fairytale. None of us know what has happened before so you must use your imagination. There are no right or wrong answers! First of all, look at the picture below and try and 'get inside it'.

What can you see? Who is the girl in the picture? How did she get here? Where is this place? What are the golden specks of light? What is she hoping to find inside? Why is she here?

Now I would like you to write a paragraph describing what happens next in this fairytale.

- Think about how the character moves across the clearing. What verbs could you use instead of 'walk' or 'moves'?

- Think about how she feels. What is happening to her body? Is she excited or having some early warning signs?

- Think about her senses. What can she smell, touch, hear, taste or see?

- Think about the questions she might be asking in her head as she gets closer to the building.

Once you've completed your paragraph, why not take a picture and share it on the blog?

Science

We have learnt all about the skeletons of animals and humans, but today we are going to be thinking about our muscles. We wouldn't be able to move our skeletons if it wasn't for our muscles!

First of all, watch the video, which explains a bit more about your muscles and how they work.
