Tuesday 16th June

Good morning Mars Class!

Here are your lessons for today:

Maths warm up. Fractions. Take the fraction strips you made yesterday. Stack them on a piece of paper, smallest at the top and largest at the bottom. Draw a number line the length of the whole strip of paper. Mark 0 and 1 using the whole strip of paper as a guide. Then mark the four fractions. (Keep your five strips of paper for tomorrow.) See photo below.

Maths main. Place value. Revise the meaning of the decimal point. Think about money and the way the decimal point separates pounds and pence. Follow the instructions on the activity sheet Place Value - Tenths. See PowerPoint below.

Guided Reading. Watch and enjoy this clip from Peter Pan:

English. Imagine you are Wendy. Write a letter to your best friend, tell them all about your first experience of flying. (See the example letter in PowerPoint below). Think about the events that happened to you, how you were sprinkled with dust and then how you could fly. What did you see as you were flying? How did you feel as you were flying? Try to include some of the new words that you found for flying yesterday. Could you also include
some prepositions (describing position or direction) in your description? E.g. above, below, beneath, within, outside, beyond. Remember to read back through your work to check that it makes sense. Check that you have punctuated your work correctly.

Science. Mini-beast hunting and classification. (This project will run all week.) Choose one of the mini-beasts you observed yesterday. Design and make a habitat box for your mini-beast. Make sure it has access to food and water, and the correct living conditions for it to survive (hot/cold, light/shade, damp/dry, soil/wood/leaves). Once the box is complete, catch your mini-beast and introduce it to it's new home. Keep it for three days before releasing it back into the wild. Observe how it moves and how it eats.
