Today, do some practical maths!
Take your green maths book outside with you into the garden (if you don't have a garden, you could look out of the window!).
a) Spend about 10-15 minutes making a tally chart of the different kinds of birds that you see - whether in your garden, or just flying past! Make a list of all the different species you see, so that you can tally how many of that species you see (see the example below).
Hopefully you'll see lots of different species! I saw two different kinds of woodpeckers; goldfinches; jays and long-tailed tits this morning, as well as more common varieties. Of course, if you don't think you'll recognise the species of birds, use a book or the RSPB website to help you!
b) Then turn your tally chart into a bar chart (again, see the example below).
In your purple writing books:
c) Choose 5 spellings again to practice using the Look, Cover, Say, Write, Check method.
d) Write 5 separate sentences using each of these words in a speech sentence, adding an extra clause after the speaker's name.
For example: Answer "Do you know the answer?" queried Mrs Wilson, peering over her small-rimmed spectacles at the boy.
e) If you haven't already, finish off your Ancient Egyptians poster page. Colour it in! Make it look attractive!
