There is a character profile template for you to use. You should write about:

  • What you know about the character – what do they like? What is their background?
  • The character’s personality
  • How the character changed during the book

 

Number Magic

Here is today’s Number Magic for you to complete. Remember to complete just one of the challenges, you don’t need to do all three!

Writing

Today we would like you to generate (come up with) vocabulary for your riddle. We will be writing riddles about woodland animals, and you can choose to write yours about a fox, a badger or a hedgehog.

 

Here's what you need to do:

  1. Choose the animal to write your riddle about
  2. Read the fact file about your animal
  3. Generate vocabulary ideas for your riddle, using the fact sheet to help you.

 

See if you can include:

  • Adjectives
  • Alliteration
  • Similes

Science

Today we are going to be looking at seasons. Every year our planet experiences four seasons, these are Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer.

As Earth moves around the Sun, it spins in a slightly tilted position, this means that throughout the year different parts of the planet are closer to or further away from the Sun’s light. This impacts of the length of each day and the average daily temperatures, as well as the amount of rainfall, dependent on the season.

  • In Autumn the amount of time it is light becomes less, the leaves start to change colour and fall off the trees. The temperature starts to become colder.
  • In Winter we have cold weather, sometimes snow and frost, the trees have no leaves and the amount of time it is light during the day is at its shortest. 
  • In Spring the weather usually turns warmer, trees begin to grow their leaves, plants start to flower and young animals such as chicks and lambs are born. 
  • In Summer the weather is usually warm, trees have full green leaves, and the amount of time it is light for during the day is longer.

 

Below is a link to BBC Bitesize, here you will find a lovely video about the four seasons and there is a game and quiz for you to complete if you feel up to the challenge:

For your task, we would like you to complete the season wheel below. In the season sections, draw what you would see during that season, for example, what would the weather look like or what animals would you see. Once you have drawn some lovely pictures of the four seasons, we would like you to think of some adjectives to describe each season. Once you have done this you can make the Season Wheel look beautiful with your colouring and you may even want to cut it out and hang it up somewhere in your home.

Maths

Today in Maths, we are going to carry on our learning from yesterday. We are going to continue looking at making different amounts in different ways, however, we are going to be doing some reasoning tasks to help us with our understanding. Make sure you read through the problem first and then answer the question using your knowledge of the value of coins, explaining your thinking with words and/or examples.

PSHCE
