Happy Friday Class Attenborough! Mrs McGill here!
Today we are exploring quarters. Please follow the link below to today's clip. Remember if you are feeling very mathematical you can always have a go at 'Friday's Maths Challenge too'.
There is no sheet based activity today but please follow the link below for a fraction based game.; 'Karate Cats'. Please have a go at the Fraction section. Then you can play the other sections after if you wanted to.
Yesterday Mr Higgins and Grammar Man were asking you to explore conjunctions. Can you explain to an adult what a conjunction is? If you need a recap watch the clip below.
Using the word mat (download below), can you please put the conjunctions into a range of sentences.
Monday celebrated 'World Ocean Day'. There were some really lovely activities, resources and clips available to explore; it would be a real shame for you to miss out on them! So your PSHE learning today is to explore the website below and have a go at some the activities available.
Have an amazing weekend everyone!

Hello, we are about to change from Mr Higgins to Mrs McGill once again, but before that happens, let’s look at today’s activities.
Today, we continue our work on fractions, looking at finding a half for a specific group of objects.
Our phonics today looks at the ay grapheme, as in tray and play. (Don’t play with your tray, the food goes on the floor!)
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it an incorrectly punctuated sentence? If it is indeed the last one, then this could be a job for… GRAMMAR MAN! Grammar Man is not necessarily the world’s most exciting hero, but he does always use his conjunctions correctly. Today’s mission is to go boldly (not boldly go, that’s a split infinitive, thanks Grammar Man!) and identify the correct conjunctions for each sentence.
Our topic this term is the Royal family, have a look through this PowerPoint about them and explain what you find out to your grownups.

Tuesday 9th June 2020
Hello everybody, just to make you aware that tomorrow I will be in school so there will be a delay on answering emails, but I’ll get to them as soon as I can. Let’s look at today’s activities.
Today we continue our work on fractions, moving on to the concept of non-unit fractions (a non-unit fraction has a numerator larger than one so 1/3 is a unit fraction and 2/3 is a non-unit fraction)
Today in phonics we are looking at the aw grapheme.
Yesterday you watched a story and talked it through with your grownups – (If you didn’t get chance, the video link is on yesterday’s page) today I want you to write out your own version of the story. You are free to either write it out as accurately as possible or to completely change the story, but I AM looking for:
Capital letters and full stops
Adjectives and adverbs
Use of question marks
Use of ‘and’, ‘but’ and ‘or’
As part of our work on materials and their properties, we are looking absorbent materials – materials that can soak up water. Your challenge is to look around your house, identify which materials are absorbent and explain why this is useful.

Welcome back for another week, the weather has been quite as good as previously (that hail the other day was a bit of a shock!) but hopefully you’ve still had lots of fun over the weekend. Let’s look at the activities!
This week we are looking at fractions, starting with unit fractions (these are fraction where the numerator is one so one half, one quarter and so on)
Today we are looking at the au grapheme, found in words such as taught and launch.
Watch the video (loosely based on the story by Oliver Jeffers) and retell the story to your adults. The whole video is 2:44 long, but then plays black for another two minutes so feel free to stop it at that point!
Are you a tunnel person or a parachute person? That’s an interesting question and I have no idea what it means, but it is a flimsy excuse to link in with today’s science activity! As part of our learning about materials and their properties, we have two different science challenges: You can either create your own parachute OR create a waterproof tunnel! Please send in any and all pictures of your creations, if we get enough, I might even set up a special section in the gallery.
