Good Morning Platypus Class.
My goodness is it Friday already? How time flies with all this home learning fun!
Well done to all of you who completed your spelling test with the o_e words on Sumdog. I have looked at your scores and as always they are very impressive.
Today’s daily tasks as always are –
So first here is a little reminder of what we have been focusing on this week.
We can split numbers 11 – 19 into a ten part and a ones part using a part whole model.
Can you copy and complete these examples into your books…
Now can you find the missing sum (total) in these equations…
How about the missing addend (part) in these equations…
Next the missing difference in these subtraction equations…
And finally if you want something very tricky how about these problems?
Sara has fifteen pencils in total. How many are hidden?
This term we have been learning a lot about animals. We have learnt about how animals can be grouped and what body parts they have. We have looked at what animals eat and done lots of comparing of animals.
We also learnt that for scientists ‘humans’ are also a kind of animal. Lots of us found this a strange idea… we didn’t all agree!
So our P4C question for today is…
What makes humans different from animals?
One way to get started in your thinking is to draw a diagram like the one below. Put all the things that you can think of that are only true for animals in the left circle. Put all the thinks that you can think of that are only true for humans in the right circle. Put the things that are true for both in the middle where the two circles cross over.
Here are some ideas to get you started. Where would you place these things?
eat sing love breathe talk make friends fight hunt
In P4C sessions we always stress that we share our ideas and that we respect the opinions of others. It would be great if you could share some of your answers to the question on the blog and even try to comment on to each other’s .
It is time for your good to be green treat….What will it be? Talk to your adult at home…
It could be playing your favourite game, going on busy things and choosing your favourite activity, baking a yummy cake or biscuits . You might want to introduce your family to ‘go noodles’ and learn a song or a dance together (see below). Just make sure you have lots of fun…..and let me know what you get up to!
And that is the buzzer for the end of term!
Happy Easter to all of you and best wishes to all your families x
I will not be doing a daily blog over the Easter Holidays but I will do one more blog post at the start of next week with some ideas to keep you busy and occupied over the Easter Holidays and help you start prepare for next terms learning.
