Good morning Chestnut Class!
I hope you had a busy day yesterday, and enjoyed your learning activities.
Don’t forget, you can email me with any questions, or to share work with us. You can also share any other interesting activities you have been doing, especially if you have been learning new skills.
Here is your Home Learning for Talented Tuesday!
It’s really great to get moving in the mornings so that you feel ready to learn and able to concentrate. Here are some suggestions to help you get you heart pumping and your mind ready for action!
Choose a physical activity that you will enjoy.
This might be:
- Pav has set you a squats challenge. Start with 15 and try to increase the amount you can do by 5 each day. He also shows you how you can make it easier or harder.
You can find Pav’s work out activities! You can find his workouts in the resources section. Have a look at Week 1.
- PE with Joe! (Joe Wicks’ daily workout on YouTube)
- Set up your own carousel – you could include running, jumping, kangaroo hops, mummy kicks, star jumps. Do 30 seconds of each in rotation, then repeat two or three times.
- How many laps of your garden can you run in 10 minutes? Can you continue without walking? If that is hard work, you could run one lap, and then walk one lap.
Tuesday History Writing task
Complete this task in your purple writing book.
This term, we will be beginning a new learning theme. To round off our work on the Egyptians, read through the two pages about the Ancient Egyptians below and watch the clips on those pages too. In your book, write down 3 facts from each of the pages. If you like, you could do a drawing as well.
When you've done that, have a go at the Egyptians quiz!
Complete these in your green maths book.
Today we are identifying more number patterns.
These become trickier each time – try as many as you can.
Here are some number patterns. Can you work out what the pattern is, continue the pattern, and then explain the rule underneath.
Rule: “The numbers increase by 2 each time” or “you have to add on 2 each time”.
Now, it’s your turn:
- 14, 18, 22 ____, _____, _____, ______, _____
- 28, 26, 24, ____, _____, _____, ______, _____
- 65, ____, 75, 80, ____, _____, _____, ______,
- 90, _____, 96, 99, ____, _____, _____, ______,
- 9, _____, 19, 24, ______, _____, _____, _____
- 24, 36, 48, ____, _____, _____, ______, _____
Can you create an addition and a subtraction pattern of your own? You can try them out with a family member, or send them to me to work out!
I will post the answers on Wednesday.
If you would like an additional Maths challenge, you could try some of the White Rose Maths activities. You can find the link in the resources section.
Continue working on your piece of art entitled ‘Family’.
This could be a drawing, a self-portrait, a sculpture or collage. Could you copy another artist's style or use your own? You could draw in a traditional style or try something more abstract.
You could use any materials you have at home: paint, crayons, felt tips, chalk, coloured pencils and so on.
Reading: Aim for at least one of these each day.
- Read independently – this could be your own book or a book from the Bug Club books which also have activities to complete – comprehension questions and little quizzes. Twinkl and Oxford Owls also have a selection of eBooks you can read online, and you can also visit the Norfolk library service and "borrow" online books.
- Read to an adult or older sibling. Talk about your book and what you are enjoying. Can you read with really good expression and intonation? Can you use voices for the different characters?
- You can also read magazines, comics or newspapers – ask your parents for ideas of what else you could read. How about a recipe book, machine manual or instruction booklet?
- Remember to explore new vocabulary when you read. Can you look in a dictionary to find out what new words mean?
- Remember, you can keep a reading record at the back of your writing book if you like.
Spellings: aim for 10 minutes a day.
Practise some of the spelling words you need to learn.
Start with the Year one / two words and find out which ones you still need to learn. You can tick the ones you can spell off by heart. If you are confident with all of these, you can begin learning the Year 3 and 4 words.
Pick 4 or 5 a day and use LOOK-SAY-COVER-WRITE-CHECK to practise each one.
Times tables: aim for 10 minutes a day.
Practise your tables every day, even for a few minutes!
3s, 4s and 8s for Year 3.
Year 4 - when you know these, concentrate on 6s and 9s next.
Write out the table you are learning from memory. Then ask an adult to muddle them up. Ask them to test you.
You can also play Hit the Button online, which is an easy and fun way to practise tables.
And to finish: A Riddle….
Riddle: A word I know, six letters it contains, remove one letter and 12 remains, what is it? Did you get the answer?
Here is Talented Tuesday’s riddle:
What is full of holes but still holds water?
I will post the solution tomorrow.
