Tuesday 24th November

Good Morning Hawthorn Class!


Happy Tuesday! Here are today's activities for you to complete...


As always, you can choose what order you do the activities in, but we suggest trying to do the Comprehension, Writing and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Let us know if you have any problems with this. Don't forget to save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail a copy to us each day.


1) Comprehension

Read the information all about different types of penguins. Then have a go at answering the questions. Use the answers to check your work once it is complete.


2) Writing

Now it's time to write your paragraphs about your new sea creatures. Use your design from yesterday to help you. You will need to write each of these subheadings and then some sentences about each one:

  • What does your sea creature look like?
  • What does your sea creature eat?
  • Where does your sea creature live?

Remember your capital letters and full stops and read your sentences back to check they make sense.


3) Maths

Adding 100 to a number and subtracting 100 from a number. Follow the PowerPoint and see if you can work out the answer before it's revealed. Notice what happens to the ones, tens and hundreds - do any of them change? Do any of them stay the same? Complete the adding and subtracting 100 worksheet. 


4) Spelling

On Tuesdays we like to design our spellings in a way that will help you to remember them. Look at each spelling and copy it in normal handwriting. Then draw your spelling, highlighting the tricky part of the word in bubble writing or drawing a picture that will help you remember what it looks like.

For example: around  ->   arOUnd

You can find the spelling on our class page as usual or on our Home Learning for Thursday 19th November. 


5) Topic

Today your Under the Sea topic lesson is all about Food Chains. Read through the information on the powerpoint to find out about food chains. Then fill in the sheet, by labelling each of the plants and animals in the food chains. You can do this on the sheet or on a separate sheet of paper, but think about your handwriting and spelling. There is a PDF called sea creatures names to help you if you are unsure of any of the names.

Extension: If you find this easy, have a go at drawing and labelling your own food chain.


6) PE with Joe!
