Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Tuesday, 2nd June

Hi Everybody!

Hope you got on well with your work yesterday. Here are your activities for today …

 

Phonics

As ever, keep having a go at Speed Trial and Tricky word trucks - keeps your phonics fresh!

 

This week our focus will be prefixes - can you remember where these go?

 

Check out Magical Matching on New Phonics Play: https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/6/magical-matching

 

There is also a work sheet for you to do concentrating on the prefix 'un'.

 

 

English

This week you are going to be using your imagination but also using all the knowledge you picked up about The Rainforest, Deserts, North or South Pole.

 

During the half term last week you spent it in this place.

 

You are going to write a letter to your teacher about your visit.  Each day you will write a section of the letter.

 

Today, we want you to write about the journey - from your home to the destination - how you got there, how long it took, how you felt on the journey and how you felt when you finally arrived.

 

Tomorrow and Thursday you will have the other sections of the letter to write. 

 

On completion you may want to post your letter to your teacher -

Greenmount Primary School

I have pretended that I went to London during the half term and am writing a letter to Mr Griffith telling him about my trip.  This will give you clues as what to include in your letter.  Today is just the introduction and the journey.

 

Maths

Warm-up =

Count in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s.

A few weeks ago your focus was on missing number sums – today to warm up your brains you have got 4 missing number sums to complete. Try to do these independently. If you are struggling you might want to look back at your previous work to remember the strategies you used.

23 + ____ = 41

____ + 17 = 35

58 - ____ = 26

___ - 15 = 32

 

Main Activity =

More activities on 2D shapes today …

First we would like you to do a 2D shape hunt. You could do this around your house, your garden, or when you go out and about to do some exercise. We have attached a worksheet to guide you.

Then, you have got some questions on 2D shapes to complete. There are 2 sets of questions, don’t feel that you need to complete them both. As with the previous worksheets set out in this style, the questions go from least to most challenging and the answers are provided at the bottom. This way you can pick and choose which questions to complete based on your child’s level of understanding.

 

Have a lovely day!

Miss C and Mrs P.
