Friday 15th January
Morning Check in on Seesaw – this will be going live at 9 a.m., but don’t panic, you have all day to respond.
Friday Assessment – Listen to your group’s spellings and dictation on SEESAW and then complete your Literacy and tables. Please try to do this honestly and on your own, the way we would in class. I would like these to be uploaded to SEESAW for me to mark. Take a picture of your Friday Assessment page and send to me. Good luck! J
You have no structured Literacy lesson for today, but maybe you could spend 20 minutes reading? Remember to predict before you read and clarify any words you’re unsure of by looking them up in a dictionary like we have done in class. Enjoy some quiet reading time…it’s one of my favourite things to do.
Numeracy – 2D Shape (Lines)
Today we are starting our series of lessons on 2D Shape. Today you are going to focus on lines. There are lots of different type of lines. There are horizontal lines, vertical lines and oblique lines. You are also going to learn about parallel and perpendicular lines.
Parallel lines are two (or maybe more), but we’ll stick with two, that never meet. You could extend the lines further in either direction and they still would never meet.
Perpendicular lines are two lines which cross each other and at the point where they cross, they make a right angle (90 degrees). Remember we can make a right angle with our two arms. One going horizontal and one vertical and each arm meeting at the elbow.
Watch the two videos to hopefully learn a little more about these lines and look at the two PPTS. Then you are to complete the two pages in your booklet…only 2, please don’t go any further. Remember if you need any more explanation of help, let me know on Seesaw. I’ll be putting an extra explanation up there anyway so look out for it on Friday.
Choose something you’d like to do for the afternoon. You have worked hard this week and so have your parents at home. Well done for completing Friday’s activities. Have a lovely weekend and stay safe with your family.
