I hope you all had a good weekend. How many of the activities from Friday's blog did you manage to do? I hope you all had a chance to relax and spend time with your families.
Here is today's home learning.
This week we are going to be looking at poetry. Each day we will learn about a different type of poem and your challenge is to create your own people in that style.
Today’s style of poem is an acrostic.
An acrostic poem is a type of poetry where the first letter in each line spells out a particular word or phrase.
For example, the poem below spells out the work Spring.
So many flowers are blooming.
Pretty little squirrels come out to play.
Really big bears awake from their slumbers.
Imaginative children enjoy a walk with their friends.
No tree is left standing without any leaves. So
Go ahead, jump for joy because spring is here.
Use the photo below as inspiration to create your own acrostic poem.
CHALLENGE: Instead of having it as the first letter of each line spelling out the word, you could choose to have the last letter or even a letter in the middle of each line.
This week, we are going to be revising fractions. Lots have you played the Purple Mash game last week and so have already recapped some of our learning from Autumn Term.
Today we are going to look at equivalent fractions. These a fractions that have the same value even though the numerator and denominator are different.
Here is a fraction wall to help you solve the questions.
This interactive fraction wall might also help you: https://www.visnos.com/demos/fraction-wall
CHALLENGE: How many equivalent fractions of ¾ can you think of
I miss you all, it's very strange to think it's been over a week since we were last in school.
Keep on staying safe, being helpful and washing those hands!
