Today you are going to think about trees and how important they are. Read this lovely story – Mikku and the Trees: https://spiritoftrees.org/mikku-and-the-trees. Sorry, this link does not appear to be working any more and I can't locate an appropriate version of the story.
As an alternative - have a look at the Topic work for this afternoon and use some of the tree names to write acrostic poems about trees.
In maths this week, you will be consolidating your understanding of the number operations, using mental arithmetic and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You will need to know when to use mental arithmetic and when to use a written method.
There are 3 great adding and subtracting learner guides and helpful video clips at:
There are also 4 multiplying and dividing learner guides and helpful video clips at:
You can also contact us via email, if you need any help.
Don’t forget to practise Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS)
This afternoon, we are going to continue learning about trees. Watch this clip to learn more about the importance of trees: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5I7u5FMQxHA
Now we are going to think about British trees. Look at this clip to see the top 10 trees in the UK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2xRmjfkF4A
Have a look at the trees you can see from your windows or garden – or look at trees in your local area or park. If you can, go for a walk with your family to the woods. Try to identify the trees that you see. How many can you find? At the bottom of this page is a leaf identification sheet to help:
Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record. Continue using myON to do your online reading and quizzes at: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html. We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So, go on, let’s get reading!
Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell the Year 2 spellings, then do the Year 3/4. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
