Here is week 4 of at home learning for our last summer term. Remember task 1 is what we would like you to complete, task 2 and weekly challenges are optional - they are there for the extra challenge. If you require any support with any of the learning provided, please do get in contact with us and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Task 1 - Read The Netherlands
New week; new text! Well done everyone on last weeks guided reading text - you all did brilliantly. This week we have a different genre of text. Can you work out the genre? What features tell you this? As always today is reading day. Read the text aloud to someone, practice your echo reading with someone (if you can) and then read once more!
Task 1 - Read Eric by Shaun Tan and Modal Verbs
Listen to or watch Eric by Shaun Tan using the video of Ruth Merttens reading the book below or the PowerPoint provided. What do you like about the story? Is there anything that you dislike about it? Does it remind you of anything that has happened to you? Does it remind you of any books that you have read?
Task 1 - Modal Verbs
Use PowerPoint on modal verbs. If this is not possible, use the Revision Card to remind yourself about these. Complete Modal Verb Activity on the sheet below: Monday 22nd June. Then Read through Eric and highlight the modal verbs that you can find in this writing - once finished you can check your answers at the end of the pack to see how you did; did you find them all?
Task 2 - Try the Fun-Time Extras
Can you find out some more about Shaun Tan? You could start at this website: http://www.shauntan.net/books.html
Can you interview other people to find out about the strangest visitor they’ve ever had to their house?
Maths - Area and Perimeter
This week is all about measurement. We need to remind our selves what area and perimeter actually measures. Perimeter is the distance around a shape. Area is the space inside the shape. Watch both Maths Antics videos below to help explaining how to find out perimeter and area. Always remember to write your unit of measurement (cm, K, cm2, etc).
Imagine a slice of bread and jam. The crust runs around the outside of the bread, it's perimeter. The jam covers the space inside the crust, it covers the area.
Task 1 - MyMaths Perimeter Lesson and Homework
Have a look at the lesson after the Maths Antics video and have a go at the homework. Take your time, measuring regular shapes to find the perimeter is easy but irregular ones can be tricky.
Alternative Task 1 - Page 64
This asks you to measure the perimeter and then find the area so please make sure you watch the Maths Antics videos to help.
Task 2 - Resource sheet - 1 cm2.
Use the resource sheet - draw round an object you have in your house. Can you find the perimeter of it and then the area? Each square is a cm2, try a regular shape first. Then why not draw around your hand or foot?
