We have been thinking about rhyming words and writing our own versions of ‘Hey Diddle Diddle’.

Can you make the longest rhyme string?

Here’s one to start you off: cat, fat, bat, rat, sat, that, hat.

Can you make a longer one?

Or you might like to make you own version of another rhyme. Have fun!

In maths, we have been looking at arrays and thinking about how they help us to count more quickly. We used the words groups of and lots of to describe them.

Can you describe these arrays? Maybe you can find some more arrays at home?

We have read, learnt and written the story Jack and the Beanstalk. Next week, we will be writing our own versions!

At home, practise retelling your new version of the story. You can use/make a story map to help you!

What have you changed? What have you kept the same?

Post some of your ideas on the blog, or bring them in next week!

Weighing it up.

In our maths learning we have been thinking about measures. We have been using balance scales to find the mass or weight of objects in the class. We used the correct vocabulary:

weigh   measure   balance   heavy   light

We weighed our objects in the unit cubes. Can you find out which unit we would use to weigh a cake?

Or a car?

Or a packet of crisps?

Look at the fruit and vegetables you eat this week. Where do you think they grow? Underground, on the ground or in a bush or tree?

You can write your answers on this blog or draw a picture and bring it into school. You could explain to your class how your favourite fruit or vegetable grows and bring it into school if you like!
