Activities for Wednesday
English
 

To understand a story type

Go through the PowerPoint ‘Features of a Play’

 

Think about what makes a play interesting you can think of a film as a form of a play it’s just a recorded version they both use a script.

Read through Little Red Riding Hood using different voices for the different characters.

 

If you want you could use simple puppets to act it out.


Spelling
Choose 10 words from the 3/4 word list and use them in a sentence. If you want to do a little extra you might want to do some rainbow writing, pyramid spelling, an acrostic poem or a nonsense story. 

 

Reading
It’s time for another challenge! The aim is to read the text in 60 seconds! You should then have 5 minutes to answer the questions that come with it. There are 4 different ones available all based around the earth and the animals on it – this should help with your science learning too! We would suggest you do at least 2 today.

 

Maths
Today we will be continuing our fraction work moving onto adding and subtracting fractions. As we have done for previous days, we have attached a PowerPoint to support your understanding which should allow you to have a go. Remember you’re focusing on adding the numerators.

If you finish there are some additional challenges for you to have a go at, these are labelled as EXTENSION on the files below.

If you want to practise your times tables why not have a go at TTRS or one of these games: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables 

 

Science
Why do we have teeth? What is their purpose?

Use a mirror to look at your teeth – how many teeth have you got? How many milk ones and how many permanent teeth?

Humans have two sets of teeth – milk (about 20 teeth) and permanent (about 32 teeth) Why do you think humans have two sets of teeth in a lifetime?

You have:
Molars – crushing and grinding
Canines – gripping and tearing
Incisors – snipping and cutting

How are the teeth type shapes suitable for their purpose?

 

Have an exploration of this bitesize clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z27kng8/articles/zsp76yc

 

There is a teeth labelling activity for you to have a go at or you might like to make your own set of 3D (vampire) teeth.
 

D&T
This is going to be based around Creative Problem Solving.

We are going to give you a choice of problem each week and we would like to see how you will solve it.

Make a utensil to eat your food. The type of food you’re eating is totally your choice. Be creative and try not to make a mess!
You may also want to have a go at Miss Featherstone’s design challenge!
