Main Activity

Today we are going to use everything we know about 3D shapes to sort them into categories. Find as many different 3D shapes from around your house as you can (use the picture to help you to find different shapes). Then predict if the shape will roll, stack or slide. On your whiteboard, in your blue Home Learning book or on JIT5 draw three columns with the headings Roll/Stack/Slide. Now find out if the shapes will roll, stack, or slide. Some of them may do more than one. Write the shapes name into the correct column depending on if it rolls, stacks, or slides.

Adjectives are used to describe things. Here is a picture of Ruby. What adjectives would you use to describe Ruby? Draw a picture of her and write your adjectives around the edge.

Now  use the adjectives you thought of to create sentences. Underline the adjective in the sentence. See the example below: 

Ruby is a pretty girl and she has lovely hair.

This week we are going to be learning about conjunctions!

Conjunctions are used to join two words, phrases or clauses together to make a longer sentence.

Today we are going to be looking at the conjunction ‘and’. 

For example:

He likes oranges. He likes apples. 

Both of these sentences are equally important and can be linked together using the conjunction ‘and’. 

He likes oranges and he likes apples.

Look at the sentences below and link them using the conjunction ‘and’. Think carefully about your capital letters! Write them in your yellow home learning book or on JIT5.

 

The polar bear has white fur. It has sharp claws. 

The slippery snake has sharp teeth. He has scaly skin.

Maths

You have found a variety of containers with different capacity this week and you have used the mathematical language of ‘full, nearly full, half full, half empty, more than, less than, nearly empty and empty accurately.

Now we are going to work out some problems. Have a go with this one first.

Look carefully at the other problems below. Answer them fully on your whiteboard, in your blue Home Learning book or on JIT5.

It is a good idea to find different containers from around your house so that you can test out the answers and make up your own experiments too.
