Tuesday 19th January
In today's Maths lesson, we are going to be consolidating (practising) our multiplication and division knowledge.
We will begin todays lesson by recapping our 3 and 4 times table. We will revise using arrays correctly and see if we can remember how bar models work. We will finish by doing some learning around commutativity and using the inverse operation to check our work.
Today in our Literacy lesson, we are going to be investigating the suffixes -tion, -cian, -sion and -ssion.
In this lesson, we will begin by investigating some key vocabulary before moving on to investigating and generating rules for -tion, -cian, -sion and -ssion. As with with lots of spellings, there are often some exceptions and we will look at some for these suffixes.
Your task - You will be given a list of words that have the /shun/ sound at the end. . Can you choose the correct suffix and put these words in the correct columns? Choose 8 of these words and write an interesting sentence for each one.
For today's Science lesson we are going to be learning about skeletons. We will find out that animals can be vertebrate or invertebrate (and find out their meanings). We will be able to name the three different types of skeletons:
We will also be learning about the pros and cons of different types of skeletons.
Read through the 'Types of Skeleton' presentation and take part in the different quizzes.
Your task - Look at the 'Sorting Skeleton Types' 2star activity. Cut out and stick the animals based on the type of skeleton they have. Answer the 3 questions at the bottom of the page based on what we have learnt:
1. What other animals have endoskeletons? 2. What other animals have exoskeletons? 3. What other animals have hydrostatic skeletons?
