Literacy

This week we have begun looking at instruction texts, especially those of games.

I want you to create a short set of instructions telling me how to work something in your house. It could be for the microwave, the TV, a stereo, anything at all that has a few different things.

Make sure you start from the very beginning – so if you were telling me something about the TV, I would need to turn it on first! Think about the layout, any diagrams that would help, the order that things would need to be done in and all the things we have learned about this week.

Numeracy

We have thought about the value of numbers this week and have begun to use  <, > and = to compare numbers. Use these symbols to fill the gaps in these number sentences:

  1. 938 ____ 932
  2. 687 ____ 686
  3. 689 ____ 686
  4. 266 ____ 265
  5. 930 ____ 925
  6. 969 ____ 969
  7. 170 ____ 173
  8. 506 ____ 516
  9. 749 ____ 754
  10. 371 ____ 377
  11. 511 ____ 517
  12. 374 ____ 376

Music (from Mrs Lockwood)

You have been asked to listen to a piece of music you enjoy or like and answer these questions:

  • What is the name of the music?
  • Who composed it and who performs it?
  • Why do you like/dislike it?
  • Can you describe any musical elements you might hear?
  • Is there anything in the music that you always listen for?
