Tuesday 2nd March

Happy Tuesday!

We hope you had a fantastic Monday! Here is our quote for today:

 

Reading  

Over the next few days we will be reading 'The Emperor's Egg' by Martin Jenkins. For today's reading session, we would like you to listen to Miss Bevand reading the book. Once you've finished listening, have a bit of reflection time:

  • Did you enjoy the book? Why/Why not?
  • What was your favourite part?
  • Have you read any similar books to this one?

 

Once you are ready, have a look at our words of the week. Can you find these words in the book? Some of them might be used slightly differently. For example, we have used 'huddle' as a verb (a doing word) in our words of the week, but in the book it is use as a noun 'the huddle'. You then need to choose three words of the week (try to pick words that are new to you) and put them into your own sentences. It's up to you whether you create your sentences verbally or write them down.

Maths

Today we are going to be finding one third of numbers. We will go over how to do this in our Teams meeting.

Number Magic  

For your warm up today we would like you to play 'Mirage Madness' on Education City. 

Spellings

Today we would like you to practise spelling the plural of words that end in y by adding es. 

 

Remember the spelling rule:

If the word ends in ‘y’ and has a consonant before it, change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add ‘es’ to make the plural.

But, if the letter before the 'y' is a vowel then we just add ‘s’ to make it plural.

 

Complete the plural sentences below to practise your spellings.

Science  

It's experiment day! laugh Today you need to carry out your science experiment to find out which ingredient will melt an ice cube the fastest! 

 

Get 6 ice cubes and put each one in a section of the muffin tray.

  • Pour a little sugar onto one ice cube
  • Pour a little salt onto the second ice cube
  • Pour hot water over the third ice cube (make sure you take care with hot water and ask an adult to help you)
  • Pour cold water over the fourth ice cube
  • Leave the fifth ice cube alone 
  • Add an ingredient of your choosing to the sixth ice cube

 

Start your timer and observe the results! Was your hypothesis from yesterday correct?

 

Which ice cube melted the fastest? Which melted the slowest?

 

Once you are ready, write up the results of your experiment in the second box on your sheet. 

Forest School

Today would have been our Forest School day. We have attached a link to website that has lots of outdoor activity ideas. You don't have to complete any but they are there if you would like to.
