Hello everyone, Emily here,
Alice was working very hard at school yesterday sorting out the book swap, so she asked me if I would help her do the blog today :) Alice was super impressed at the amount of children who came to the book swap - Well done you super stars! I hope you have all been enjoying your home learning - Alice and the team have created some wonderful learning for you all. A special shoutout forNourredine's poem - it was great!
So lets get started on today's learning....
First of all Alice would like me to share the guided reading answers from yesterday:
Literacy: The Tin Forest
Think about how the main character (the old man) felt throughout the beginning of the story!
I challenge you to think of at least 7 adjectives to describe his feelings. Draw out two outlines of the man and write your ideas inside. I will help you with one but can you think of 7 more? I think you can!
1. At the beginning of the story : determined
2. As the character woke up from his dream: disappointed,
To extend your learning around the outside of the outline of the man you could write what thoughts the character may have the different parts of the story.
1. I will try my best to clear this awful mess!
2. My dream felt so real! Oh, how I wish things were different!
Are You A Square?
Today for maths we are going to do a investigation all about you!
First of all I would like you to make some predictions (a sensible guess) about your height and arm span (see photos below of arm span):
1.Make a prediction- How many cm tall do you think you are? (Remember a ruler at school is 30cm)
2. Make a prediction- How many centimetres tall is your arm spam? Measure to find out!
Next I would like you to get an adult or sibling to help you with the measuring ( you might have a measuring tape at home, or a ruler! Don't worry too much if you don't have these things - try and get your adult to tell you what they think your height is in cm!)
After you work out your measurements you can find out if you are a square, a tall rectangle or a wide rectangle!
If you have the same height and arm span you are a SQUARE!
If your height is less than your arm span you are a TALL rectangle!
If you height is greater than your arm span you are a WIDE rectangle!
How to Make
Do not worry if you don't have a printer!
Create your own from the templates :)
