# Monday 1st February

Monday 1st February

Morning Check in on Seesaw – this will be going live at 9 a.m., but don’t panic, you have all day to respond. Don’t forget pack pick up today is from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and we would like you to wear a mask when doing so.

Phonics – Our sound of the week is ‘ant/ent’ suffixes. Monday’s phonics task will be your sound sort you usually complete as Tuesday night’s homework and these are your spellings for the week. Maybe while you’re waiting for your pack, you could play 10 minutes of Nessy?

Tables – Your tables this week are dividing tables and you have an information page in your pack. Today I’d like you to learn your dividing by 3 tables. Remember…if you know your 3 times tables, then dividing is easy.

Literacy – Comprehension

For your Literacy lesson today, I’d like you to have a go at the comprehension in your pack. Read carefully through your text and remember to clarify any words you are unsure of by using a dictionary if you can…however I don’t think you’ve any tricky words.

Numeracy – Formal Multiplication TUxU

We have spent some time looking at multiplying numbers using the grid method. This week, we’re going to spend some time looking at the more formal method of multiplication.

It is important to spend some time practising this before doing your work for today. You can practise this by first watching the explanation video on SEESAW and then trying the PowerPoint below with your whiteboard so you can go through the examples alongside the PPT.

Once you think you’ve got it, try your worksheet for today.

Art/Numeracy – Create a tangram picture

Invented in China approximately 200 years ago, a tangram is a 2D puzzle created by cutting a square into seven pieces -- seven geometric shapes called "tans".

What are the seven shapes in a tangram? Each tangram puzzle contains the following:

• 2 large right triangles
• 1 medium-sized right triangle
• 2 small right triangles
• 1 small square
• 1 parallelogram

Arranged correctly, these tangram shapes can be fitted together as a large square, rectangle, or triangle. They can also be arranged in a variety of complex shapes, including fanciful ones (like the rabbit illustrated here).

In your pack, you have a tangram page with the 7 shapes you need and an A3 page.

1. Cut out your 7 shapes carefully.

2. Place them on your page to make your desired shape. You want it to look like something and to be a complete picture, the examples below will give you an idea. (If you're stuck for ideas...look at the PPT below).

REMEMBER: There should be no overlapping and the shapes should connect to another shape.

3. Once you’ve place them in position, talk over with someone at home what it is and then stick it onto your A3 page. Then get creative by drawing over the shapes to make your Art picture. Don’t forget to add details in the background too!

4. Have fun and make sure to send me your finished pictures on SEESAW.

It would be great if you could send me a picture of you holding your tangram so I can share on the website for everyone to see, so ask someone at home to take this for you! J

Well done for completing Monday’s activities. Rest up for another day of fun activities tomorrow and maybe do some reading if you can to finish your afternoon! J
