In our English lesson today, we are going to be thinking about different types of sentences. It is important to remember to write your sentences with a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end but sometimes, you need to use different punctuation, like question marks too.
Have a look at the clip below. It explains a little bit more about how to write questions.
Practise writing a question mark. Remember that it sits above the line.
I would like you to watch the powerpoint and complete the activities. In your yellow book, you can write down your animal sentences and your questions about the 'upside down' house. You can just talk to your grown up about the activities on the other slides.
When you are writing your animal sentences, please remember to use adjectives to make your sentences more interesting. You could say 'The giraffe has brown patches all over it and it has a long thin neck.'
When you are writing questions for the 'upside down' house picture, remember to try and use different question words. Don't forget your question mark at the end.
For our maths starter today, I want you to compare two numbers by finding out, 'how many more' or 'how many less' one number is than another. For example:
How many less is 11 than 18?
You can work out the answer by putting the smallest number in your head and counting on as we do in class sometimes. Now try these:
How many more is 18 than 15?
21 than 17?
How many less is 45 than 50?
30 than 40?
Can your grown up ask you at least 5 more?
For your main activity, we are going to look at some different ways that information can be presented and answer questions about it. We have looked tally charts, pictographs and bar charts before. Read through the powerpoints with your grown up and complete the activities.
These are important words to remember.
Tally - can you draw a tally for the number 4, 7, 15?
Scale - this means the numbers at the side of the pictograph or bar chart.
Key - this tells you what each picture in a pictograph means.
Now try this worksheet. You can print it off or just go through it on the computer. As an extension you can complete challenge card 1.
Our 3rd activity on a Friday is going to be a special challenge. This week its making a paper snowflake. Watch the video and find out how!
