Today we are going to start a new topic in our Maths work, Length.
In our first lesson, we are going to learn how to use our rulers accurately and begin measuring in cm and mm.
We will begin our lesson by looking at key vocabulary (words) to do with length. Next we will look at how we can estimate lengths in cm before we are introduced to using mm to measure. We will finsh the lesson by having a go at using a ruler accurately to measure.
Watch the video lesson and have a go at completing the measuring task. Start by measuring the lines to the nearest cm. Remember to start at the 0 line on your ruler. Next, measure the lines again to the nearest mm using the opposite side of your ruler.
In this lesson, we will explore the rules associated with adding the suffixes -er and -est.
We usually use the suffix -er when we are comparing things or people that are more than another - e.g. Mr Ward is taller than Mrs Thompson
We call this the comparative
We usually use the suffix -est when something or someone is the most - e.g. Amy was the tallest girl in the class
We call this the superlative.
During the lesson we will learn key vocabulary, investigate and genarte rules to help us to remember the correct suffix.
Your task - You are going to be given a list of adjectives. I would like you to write each adjective in the comparative (using suffix -er) and the superlative (using suffix -est). Next, choose 6 words from the comparative list and write a sentence for each one. Finally, choose 6 words from the superlative list and write a sentence for each one.
We are going to continue with our topic, All around the world.
Today we will be learning about what are North America's countries and physical features?
In this lesson, we will be learning to locate North America, as well as the countries within North America, on a map. We will also be learning about the five different regions of North America and at the end of the lesson, comparing two of the regions.
Complete the tasks on the video lesson and then using the Map of North America, label on the different countries, the seas/oceans surrounding North America and see if you can label and put 5 cites of your choice on the map. You can use an atlas or the internet to help you.
