Maths

Today in maths we are going to be thinking about measuring.

You will need:

a ruler

a metre stick (or a tape measure locked to 1m)

Firstly look at the ruler and the metre stick (tape measure). Can you spot the cm side? Can you spot where the ruler and metre stick measurements start?

Now look around your house and find objects that are shorter than a ruler, taller than a ruler, shorter than a metre and longer than a metre. Once you have your objects draw it on the sheet below.

After that measure your objects and write their actual length in the box below your objects.

Phonics

Follow the link below to the Ruth Miskin phonics channel on YouTube. There will be a video uploaded, one sound per day (which is a recap of sounds taught) and this video will be available for 24 hours. There will also be a following spelling session for your child to test their phonics knowledge. It is important that you do both sessions.

Storytime- every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 2pm

In today's learning we are going to be looking at dragons.

Read the poem called I wish I had a Dragon. Have a think about what Shel Silverstein wants his dragon to be like. Which is the best thing? Why?

Similar to The Vulture poem I want you to highlight the pairs of words that rhyme. Look at rhyme time and copy the words from the big box to the correct column. Try and add some of your own rhyming words.

Do not do Task 3- instead write down any of the dragon words from the poem that you think are good descriptions for a dragon as you will need these for Friday.

Optional extra: Try and unscramble the anagrams to find the dragon word. You don't need to print the challenge.

Inspirational Famous people

This week we are looking at famous people and learning more about them. Today the famous person I have chosen for you to look at is Tim Peake.

Tim Peake is the first British astronaut to ever go into space. Watch the videos below to learn a bit more about him and to watch his launch into space.

## Having Fun in Space!

Astronauts taking some time off to relax and enjoy life in space.

After thinking about measuring in maths and Tim's journey into space I would like you to have a go at the activity below:

How to make a straw rocket

For this activity you will need:

• scissors
• tape
• 2 straws (one thinner than the other or both the same size)

Step 1

Draw a rocket and colour it in. You might want to add an astronaut peeking out of the window.

Step 2

Cut the thin straw or one of your straws down to 10cm in length and tape the top of it shut.

Step 3

Tape the thin straw or your tapped off straw to the blank side of the rocket. Leave about 4cm of the straw sticking out of the bottom of the rocket. Only tape two thirds of the way down the rocket.

Step 4

Slip the thicker straw over the thinner straw or fold the one straw length ways so it fits inside the other straw.

Step 5

Blow into the straw and watch your rocket fly. It make it an extra challenge you could use a ruler or tape measure to measure how far you rocket has flew.

If you are unsure I have a picture show below of each stage.
