Morning everyone!  How are you today? I really enjoyed seeing some of your delicious recipes yesterday, I have loads of new ideas to try. I didn't get everyone's favourite recipe so if you have not sent it in yet, then please do today so I can gather them together into a class recipe book! Have a lovely day trying out today's activities. I look forward to seeing how you get on. Remember if you need us just use the class email or the Purple Mash email. 

Reading 

Just two more weeks left to achieve this half terms reading target so I would like you to prioritize your reading this week. That means, if you can, do your 30 minutes reading and quizzing before doing anything else, to make sure it isn't forgotten. Remember we are also aiming for those quiz scores to be over 85% to show you are reading and understanding. 

Well done to Chloe H, Eliza S, Katie W, Abbey B, Max D, Matilda J, Max J, Harriet S, and William for already smashing their targets! There are no more people yet, but there are at least 4 more people who could easily reach their target this week. Fingers crossed!

Remember if you are beginning to run out of books then go to this page on the website as there is a huge list of suggestions for where to go to find books that are still on AR! 
 

 PE

Have a look at the link below. Have a go at building your own workout. Try out some different moves and activities today. keep moving as often as you can and get outside for plenty of Vitamin D when you can!

 Spellings

Using the spellings I sent on Monday to your Purple Mash email plus two of the additional words which have the same spelling pattern that you found yesterday, have a go at playing one of our spelling games: invisible man, battleships, letter scramble, outside writing, hangman etc. 

Maths

Please begin today with your 5 sessions on TT. 

Year Four: Quadrilaterals

Today I would like you to become "quadriexperts" (I have made that up...) That is I want you to find out all about quadrilaterals - can you find the names of different quadrilaterals and find out how they are the same and different from each other.
The following resources may help:

https://www.mathsisfun.com/geometry/quadrilaterals-interactive.html

 

 Don't worry about recording this for me today, just spend some time exploring and checking your understanding. Maybe play games or draw your own to check you know which is which and most importantly why! 

Year Three: Lines

Please have a look at this video to learn all about the names for different pairs of lines!

Then head across to Purple Mash to have a go at the activity I have set you as a 2Do. 

Helping out: Planning a Meal.

We have talked a lot about helping out at home, especially through kind words or actions. (Hugs are compulsory!) But I would now like you to think about how you can help by taking responsibility for cooking a whole meal.
Today I would like you to plan a meal for your family. Devise a menu so your family know what they can look forward to and then write a shopping list of ingredients.
Discuss your plans with your family and decide when would be a good time for you to cook; it may have to wait until someone can get the ingredients, or you may be able to adjust your menu a little bit and have it sooner. I look forward to seeing your menus and plans. Remember to think about a balanced diet - try to include a variety of food types! 

Learning Project: Food 

 The project this week aims to provide opportunities for you to learn more food. Learning may focus on where different foods originate from, what makes a healthy meal, opportunities to cook etc. As usual use this as an opportunity to research and work on ideas and issues that interest you. Use the ideas below as a starting point but follow your own thoughts and learning. 


 

Let’s Wonder: 

What is a balanced diet? Find out about the 5 food groups. Make slides or posters about what you find out about. ​What are - Carbohydrates,​ ​Protein​,  ​Dairy​, ​Fruits and ​Vegetables​, and ​Fats​. Where does your food come from? Which foods come from the UK? ​What is fairtrade? 
   

 Let’s Create:  

 
Make repeated pattern prints for decorative purposes using various natural materials, e.g potato printing.
Perhaps create some still life observational sketches of fruit. Look at the artwork of ​Giuseppe Arcimboldo -maybe recreate some of his paintings with fruit. 
 

 

Time to Talk:  

 As a family, design a healthy meal plan for the week. Discuss your favorite foods and why you all enjoy them? Talk about healthy and unhealthy foods and explain the importance of eating a balanced diet. Talk to older members of your family and ask them about food - have the types of food available changed? Do they eat differently now? What are their favorite foods? 
 

Understanding Others and Appreciating Differences: 

Lunch around the world.​ Look at lunch around the world and investigate how differently people eat in other parts of the world. Find out what a vegetarian is? Vegan? Kosher food? Halal food? 
 

Reflect: 

Reflect on food use and food wastage around the world. Find out about countries which experience famine - why does this happen? Reflect on how you can reduce food waste in your house? Learn about food banks in our area - why are these needed? Who supports food banks? Can you help at all? 

Take care and be kind. Remember to pass on a smile and give many hugs to those lovely people who are helping you to be the best you can today. Thank you for making me smile with all of your amazing work each day!
