I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine yesterday from your windows. Joe Wicks is still providing us with some daily exercise on his YouTube channel but if you want something a little different try GoNoodle – Banana Banana Meatball. This is one of our favourites in school. Here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQ9q4U2P3ig
Yesterday you had a try at dividing some objects into two groups. For a challenge today, can you try halving up to twenty items. Here are some questions:
What is half of 5 and how do you know?
What is half of 10 and how do you know?
What is half of 20 and how do you know?
Here is my chocolate bar. I have eaten half. How many squares are left? You might want to draw this at home and use some objects to support.
Remember to use the language “half of __ is __ ”
In your packs there is a piece of paper with all of the letters of the alphabet in the handwriting we use at school. It has been a while since we have practised our handwriting so can you choose five letters to practise yourself. Afterwards, try and write your name in your neatest handwriting.
Below I have added a poem for you to read with an adult. I have also attached a voice recording of myself reading this. Can you listen for any rhyming couplets you hear? What makes you happy? With support, can you write your own verse?
Don’t forget you can send your work to your teacher:
Miss.firstname.lastname@example.org or Mrs.email@example.com
Have a great day!
Miss Goodswen and Mrs Hughes
Happy Poem by James Carter
Happy as a rainbow
happy as a bee
happy as a dolphin
splashing in the sea
Happy as bare feet
running on the beach
happy as a sunflower
happy as a peach
Happy as a poppy
happy as a spoon
dripping with honey
happy as June
Happy as a banjo
plucking on a tune
happy as a Sunday
Happy as a memory
shared by two
happy as me …
when I’m with you.
