# Week starting 14/3/22

## Topic

 Topic Lessons 1 This week we are learning about the living processes. Look at the powerpoint about MRS GREN. This will explain what the features of all living things are.  When you have looked at this. Can you sort and classify some objects as living, not living, never been alive. Cut and stick the pictures from the sheet below, into those categories. 2 Can you write about MRS GREN? Write each of the features as a sentence and define each of them  or giving examples of this i.e. M – Movement. All living things move, even plants grow towards the sun and petals open. Our chicks moved around their brood box. 3 This week we are working on our handwriting. Can you copy out the "I am great" poem, in your neatest handwriting. Making sure the tall letters are tall, small letter are small and all letters are sitting on the line. There is some special paper to write this on down below, you can bring this back to school and we will stick this into your book.

## Maths

 Maths Lessons 1 Maths warm up: practice counting in 2s.This week we are learning about multiplication. We have already learnt about arrays, this week are looking at getting our multiplication more fluent. When looking at the calculation 3x2= we have been practicing reading this as "3 groups of 2". To work this out quickly, we can put up 3 fingers (as our groups) and count in 2s. This will then give us our answer.  Can you work out these calculations using the same method. 4x2 =7x2=1x2=9x2=2x2=10x2=3x2= 2 Maths warm up: practice counting in 5s.Can you use the same method as yesterday to work out these calculations. 4x5 =7x5=1x5=9x5=2x5=10x5=3x5=  5x5=5x4=5x6=5x1=5x8= 3 Maths warm up: practice counting in 10s.Can you use the same method as yesterday to work out these calculations. 3x2 =7x10=1x5=9x2=2x10=10x5=3x2= 4 This lesson we will be looking at pictures and working out the multiplication sentence that goes with the picture. To work out this calculation below we can see there are three groups of 2 shoes. So the calculation would be 3 x 2. We can work this out by either putting the three groups on our fingers and counting in 2s, or counting in twos using the picture. Then we find the answer 6.  How many shoes are there altogether? 3x2=6.   Please see the sheet below for more pictures, and write the calculation along with the answer. 5 This lesson we will be looking at word problems.  E.g. There are 4 bags of apples in each bag are 5 apples. How many apples are there altogether.  When looking at word problems, it is important to think about what the question is asking you. The above question is wanting to know how many apples are there ALTOGETHER. It also explains that there are 4 bags (groups), and in each bag (group) there are 5. This helps us see that it is asking us to think of 4 groups of 5 (or 4x5). If this is tricky to visualise, sometimes it is easier to draw out pictures to help us see what the question is asking. Have a go now at some questions on the sheet below, writing the number sentence and answer in the box next to the question.
