Measure length

This week, our Maths focus is going to change and we will focus on measurement. Today we are going to focus on 'measuring length'.


Key Questions:

  • What is length?
  • How many different ways can we measure length and what units of measurement can we measure length in?
  • If I was to measure my fingernail, what unit of measurement would I use? My rubber? My height? The area of the playground?


By clicking the image above, it will take you to todays learning video. After this, try to engage in some of the materials below- this will help you with your understanding of 'measuring length'. You will be looking at how you use a ruler or tape measures, so you might need to try to get some help with this if you can today! Just choose some of the activities which take you up or just beyond your 45 minutes learning time. Good luck Eagles!

Anthony Browne

For the next couple of weeks, we are moving back to looking at 'fiction learning and writing' as opposed to 'non-fiction learning and writing'. Despite us looking at authors last week, our writing we were looking at was really what type of writing?


That is correct.... it was persuasive writing and you will come back to that when we return or into Year 4! For the next couple of weeks, we are going to look at fiction books, the work of particular authors and focus in on how we write.


Do you know Anthony Browne? Look around your house- can you find any books you have which were written by Anthony Browne? Click the image above- this will take you to Anthony Browne's website. Read his 'About Me' section- this tells you why he got into writing and is an autobiography about his life and his works.


He really is famous for designing many picture books for children to read. How can we read a picture book though?


Task 1: Draw a mindmap with the words 'Picture Books' in the middle of your page. Around the outside of your mindmap, consider all of the ways 'Picture Books' can be used in our world today- at school/ for young children/ in television adverts etc.


This is the 'mindmap' for a 'journey of a book'- can you mindmap what a picture book can do for people? What does it need? How can it create words for people? Find some picture books of your own- what themes can there be in picture books?


Look at the attached Powerpoint of Anthony Browne books- do you know any of them? Do you know this one:


Click the image to listen to a re-telling of this story. This is the Anthony Browne book we are going to start by looking at...


Task 2: Watch the video up to the point where the girl enters the tunnel...


Write what might happen next in your 'Remote Learning' books...


Then, finish watching the video of the story (you might have this at home anyway!). Write down your opinions of the story. Which parts do you like? Which parts do you dislike?


We will continue from this point tomorrow...



Afternoon Learning (Science)- 08.06.2020

This week we are looking at magnets and investigating how they react to each other and different materials around the house.  Firstly, collect 6 objects from around the house- make sure they are made from different materials (make sure you check with your parents/carers before you go and get them). 

Some examples might be: a tin of food (with the label taken off); a pair of scissors; a wooden spoon; a plastic bottle; a paperclip; a door key; a dice; a fork.
Now sort them into two categories (Magnetic and Non Magnetic) using the knowledge you already have. Draw a table in your book and write the items in the correct columns.
Next watch the video below by clicking the image:




If you have a magnet at home, set to work investigating whether you were correct by using your magnet to see if they are magnetic or not. Make any corrections to your table in a different colour.
If you do not have a magnet at home, watch the video below and make any corrections to your table in a different colour:



Watch the following video that explains what happens to two magnets when they are next to each other. If you have any magnetic toys at home (Maybe a railway or some magnetic building blocks) see if you can make the items repel each other:



Now complete the PowerPoint quiz … how many questions can you get right? Remember to write your answers in sentences in your books.
