Hello everyone and welcome to Thursday’s home learning.

Maths

Join us today at 11am as we discuss today’s maths learning.

Today in maths we will be looking at angles. We will be looking at angles bigger and smaller than a right angle.

Use the angle eater below to find 90 degree angles in your house. Print it out and cut out Pac Man and use his mouth to find right angles.

90 Degree Angle Eater

Now we know what a right angle is let’s think about some other angles.

If an angle is smaller that a right angle it is called an acute angle.

If an angle is bigger than a right angle it is called an obtuse angle.

Look at the sheet below and think about which angles are bigger and which are smaller than a right angle.

English

Join us at 11am for today’s English activities.

In the time when this book was set, monks were one of the few groups of people who learnt to read and write; the majority of people were illiterate.

What would it be like if we didn’t know how to write?

Think about how tricky it can be when you are learning to write – can anyone remember learning? Did they get lots of instruction?

See if you can describe these characters to a partner, don’t let them see the character and use your explanation skills. We will be having a go at one of these on today’s live lesson.

 

Stilling Time

Blow up some balloons and play the don’t-touch-the-floor game, but focusing on gentle movements. Pretend that the balloons are bubbles that might pop, so you can only tap them delicately.

French

Salut la classe! Croisez les bras et écoutez s’il vous plaît. (Cross your arms and listen please).

When we’re speaking in French, we pronounce (say) words differently. But, just like in the English language, the French language has the 5 vowels too. A, E, I, O and U.

We pronounce some of these differently.

Learn how we pronounce vowels in the French language by watching this video.

Activité

With another person, both of you need to grab a piece of paper and a pencil. Then, choose one of the french words shown above and write it down. Hide it from your partner.

The aim of the game: Find your partners word first by asking them questions. Your partner can only answer “yes” or “no”.

You’ve got to pronounce the vowels correctly.

For example,

Mr Baird: Does your word have ‘a’ in it?

Mr Turton: Yes. Does your word have ‘e’ in it?

Mr Baird: No. Does your word have ‘m’ in it?

Mr Turton: Yes! Hmmm, is your word ‘di’?

Mr Baird: Yes!

If you’re feeling risky like Mr Turton, you can ask your partner directly what their word is…however you may be wrong!

Good Luck!
