Activities for Monday 20th April 2020

Growing Update

Miss Carter did not have much luck with the lettuce but the carrot top is still growing. It's taken the whole of the Easter Holidays for it to get that big. See below.

 

Miss Carter is also growing some cucumber plants, pepper plants and tomato plants. Here's how they are getting on. 

 

Here are Mrs Bensly's spring onions. They seem to have stopped growing at this height. Maybe it's time to harvest them!

Maths 

Today's topic is finding fractions of amounts. 

See below a video to remind you of the fractions we have looked at. 

When we are finding fractions of amounts we have to share or make equal groups.

Remember when we find a fraction the bottom number tells us how many groups we have to share it between and the top number tells us how many of those groups we need to find our answer. 

For example: if I'm finding 1/4 of an amount I need to share the amount into 4 equal groups and then one of the groups will give me my answer

 

Activity 1:

Find some things you can use to share out, to practise finding fractions of amounts. E.g.  raisins, grapes, sweets etc….

Share them out between 2 teddies to find 1/2  and then between 4 teddies to find 1/4  of them. See if you can share the same amount out between 3 teddies to find 1/3.

Draw a bar model split into 2 to find halves and into 4 to find quarters.

Topic - Dinosaurs!

This week's topic is dinosaurs! Wooo hooo! heart

 

Today we are going to have a go at drawing some dinosaurs.

 

Sometimes cartoony drawings are most useful, especially if you're doing someone a picture or illustrating a story. Here's a great tutorial on how to draw THE CUTEST dinosaur blush

If you're writing an information text about dinosaurs, you'd probably want to draw a more scientific type. Here's a tutorial for that type:

Keep hold of your drawings - we are looking for ways in which you can share them with us!
