Now that we have learnt some interesting facts about our world and our first continent, Europe, we can now start to fill in the first page of our passport! How exciting!!
Fill in the page below and choose your favourite human and physical features in Europe, you might want to tell us where in Europe you would find the features and you could even tell us a fact about it. You could choose one from the sorting you completed yesterday, or you may even want to research what other human and physical features there are in Europe.
Today’s reading activity is based on the story ‘The Magic Porridge Pot’ that you read yesterday. The activity is called an inference calculator and involves you having to find evidence in the story to prove that statements are correct.
We went through the task in this morning’s Teams meeting but in case you missed it or want to listen to it again, you can watch the video below.
Make sure you have the text up in front of you as you will need to use it to pick out your evidence.
Today we have linked below a lovely warm up game for you to have a go at before you start your Number Magic task today.
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!
Today’s maths lesson is all about repeated addition. This means adding the same number multiple times. We can write repeated addition number sentences to represent equal groups. Below is a video of today’s maths input from our Teams meeting. Feel free to watch it again!
Today we are going to carry on our learning about homophones. Remember a homophone means two or more words having the same pronunciation (they sound the same) but they have different meanings or spellings, e.g. sea and see or knight and night.
For today's task we would like you to create your own 'Homophone booklet'. You can create your booklet using homophones that you learnt yesterday. You are welcome to make the booklet look as lovely as you would like! You could also you have ago at putting each homophone into a sentence.
We have done an example page below for you:
I have reattached the links from yesterday, incase you needed a refresher.
Each week we will give you a piece of music to listen to from the continent that we are learning about. This week we are learning all about Europe. We would like you to listen to a classical piece of music of a very famous Austrian/German composer called Ludwig van Beethoven. This piece is Beethoven: Symphony Number 5 which was written in 1808 (just over 200 years ago)! All you need to do is to listen to some of the video and have think about whether you like it or not and how different the music is to what we would hear on the radio today. Enjoy watching the musicians play their instruments!
Today we will be learning to clap rhythmic patterns using crotchets and minims. Watch the video below which will teach you about crotchets and minims. Once you are feeling confident, have a go at the activity.
Have a listen to our story at some point in your day. Go the the video resource centre.
