Maths

I am learning to identify halves (½)

We know that half is when an object shape or number is divided in to 2 equal parts.

Follow the PowerPoint which guides us through identifying when something has been halved (or not).

Then have a go at the reasoning, problem solving and varied fluency sheets.

English Can I reflect on a time when I did not make a good choice?

This is a talking lesson. You can write down your thoughts if you want to but the aim is to reflect on a time when maybe you upset someone or made a choice that got you into trouble. Did it seem fair that you got in trouble? On reflection do you agree that you did something wrong? Why?

Think about Ada Twist and how her curiosity got her in trouble;
She tried to put the cat in the washing machine.
Were her parents right to be cross? Why?
Ada thought she was just conducting a science investigation, but what could have gone wrong?
Could she have conducted her experiment in a different, safer way? How?
She was sent to the thinking chair. What have your consequences been?

Ada then wrote all over the walls. Do you think you would get in trouble for that?
She was trying to solve a problem, but could she have done it in a different way? How?

Topic IALT persuade visitors that when they come to this area to be responsible and to take their litter with them (Poster/letter?)

Here are some signs that have either been made by official council or government organisations or individuals to remind people to clean up after themselves. You may have seen some of these signs if you have been out in the car, out for a walk, on the beach or in a park. Some people forget or choose not to get rid of their rubbish properly by either not putting it in the right bins or taking it home to sort out. We have learnt a great deal about pollution and how man-made materials can be bad for wildlife on land and in the sea. Rubbish left lying around is also not good for our health, the environment in general and it can smell and look really disgusting.
Can you create a sign or write a letter that politely reminds people to clean up after themselves and not leave their rubbish behind? Take a look at the pictures I have attached for ideas (take your rubbish messages).
