Good morning Mars Class!

Here are the lessons for today:

Maths warm up. Fractions. You will need 48 counters for this activity (or buttons or cards or clothes pegs). Start with 16 counters for this example. Write down 1/4 on a piece of paper. Find 1/4 of your counters. Remember the numerator and the denominator, to find 1/4, we share the counters into four equal parts. Write the number sentence 1/4 of 16 = 4. See photo below. Now find 1/4 of the following numbers and write the number sentences that go with them: 40, 24, 32, 12, 48.

Maths main. Money. Complete the activity Finding change. Don't forget to use the counting up strategy to calculate the change. See the PowerPoint below. 

Guided Reading. The theme for this week is Be Healthy and Happy. Watch and enjoy this
song: Keeping Healthy song
Discuss what you have learned after watching and enjoying the song.

English. Now look at this website: NHS – Eat Well Guide
Adult support will be needed to read, navigate and discuss the content of this website.
After this, create, draw and label your own Eat Well plate. Organise your plate into sections
for: carbohydrates, protein, dairy foods, fruit and vegetables. You could present this by drawing on a paper plate or making your own plate out of paper/cardboard.
Display it in your kitchen for everyone in your family to see. Next time you eat your dinner, can you identify all the foods on your plate and to which food group they each belong?

D&T. Picture Frame Project. The task for this week is to design, make and evaluate a nature picture frame then take a selfie inside your frame. Today I would like you to investigate existing photo frames and design a nature picture frame of your own. (See photos of nature picture frames and pages 1 and 2 of the D&T booklet below.) There are key questions to answer and prompts in the booklet. Once complete, send me some pictures of your work.
