Maths

As a starter we have a problem to consider:

If a strawberry weighs 3 cubes and a cherry weighs less, what could the cherry weigh?

Challenge – What other items would weigh less than a strawberry? By how many cubes do you think?

Today's lesson we are going to continue working on comparing mass and weight. Watch today's learning video to find out more.

Challenge

 

Today's activity is a game! I will add it underneath if you would like to print it. Or copy the items onto pieces of paper and draw one large set of scales into your book.

 

Activity

Cut out the objects and place them out in front of you.

In pairs pick an object each.

Compare the objects and place them in the scales. Ask which is the heaviest? Which is the lightest? How do you know? Repeat with other items.

 

If you want to make this activity more challenging or slightly simpler just change the numbers on the object cards or pick 2 objects each.

Music

 

This term we are following the BBC radio music programme.  Today we are continuing with the story of Tiddalik the frog. Below you will find a link that takes you to Part 2.


 

R.E.

We continue to try and find an answer to Abby Owl's big question - was it always easy for Jesus to be a good friend?  Today we will listen to a story from the Bible which tells about a time Jesus showed kindness and friendship to someone that may not have been easy to show it too.

God's Story: Zacchaeus

Zacchaeus was a tax collector who had no friends because he took people's money to make himself rich. Jesus showed him love, and it changed his life. When Zacchaeus realized that Jesus loved him even though he had messed up, he wanted to show that kind of love to others.

Handwriting

What letters will you need to join today to spell the words?  Can you get them to sit on the line?
