All groups - watch the clips below all about Mammals

Today we are going to explore how some animals are the same and also different - we are going to 'compare' them. 

 

 

          

 

Now, watch these clips which compare different animals. 

 

         

 

Now you choose 2 animals to compare and complete the Venn diagram 

 

Hi everyone - just to let you know, I've amended the link for the Classification video in Topic on Monday. Sorry about that, I must have got them mixed up! It's now available for you to view. It explains really well how animals are divided into families.

Your task today is to collect data about favourite wild animals!

 

      What is data – Have a think! It is simply collecting information! 

 

Do you recall work we did at the beginning of Year 1 recording data using tally marks? Yes, that's right the time we stood outside and inside the post office to see how many people used it and what they were using the post office for.  You also used tally marks to record what you found on your Mini Beast hunt a few weeks ago in home learning. Watch the clip then play the game below to refresh your memory on counting tally marks. 

 

              

 

Next over the rest of the day I would like you to contact at least 20 people (more if you want to), any family members, cousins, aunties, uncles, family friends, school friends, you can even email any of the teachers and ask them.  

 

You are going to ask them to choose their favourite wild animal from the selection of wild animals you choose yesterday.  Each time a person chooses their favourite animal make a tally mark in the table you made.  See example below. 

 

   

Keep your tally chart safe,  you will need to use the information on there in tomorrows maths.

  

 

 

Topic

Today's topic lesson is going to explore another animal family  - watch the clips below to find out all about them.

 

 

As you did yesterday, complete a Venn diagram comparing a mammal and amphibian

 

 

If you have time, why not have a go at making your very own frog. click on the link and follow the instructions.

 

Thinking Thursday

Hey everyone - for the next couple of days in Literacy and Topic we are going to be finding out all about a country a long long way from Wales. It's where the animals that you learn't about last week live. I wonder if you can guess what country it is? It begins with the sound 'A'.

That's right it's Africa.

Bbc bitsize clip pictograms 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zg4d2hv 

All groups - Yesterday you collected data on favourite wild animals and recorded results in a tally chart.  Today you are going to use the data you collected to make a pictogram.  Do you recall we did some work on pictograms at the start of the year.  Remember we made a gigantic pictogram in the hall of the different types of shops in Canton. 

 

Watch the clip below to refresh your memory on making a pictogram. Then play the fruit fall pictogram game.

  

          

 

The pictures below explain which icons you will need to use in the program, then use the data in your Tally Chart to make a ‘Pictogram of Favourite Wild Animals’ 

 

Step 1 - click on blank template          Step 2 - Scroll through animals until you find the ones you need

    

Step 3 - Click on the animal and put it in first box at bottom of pictogram, do the same for each animal in your tally chart. Next click in the box where it says label and type in the animal name.

   
Step 4 - Finally read the data from your tally chart, use the + and - symbol to add or take away animals. If you make a mistake click on the undo icon shown below or new sheet icon if you need to start again. 

      undo icon                new sheet icon

Maths

              

                                              

       

All groups – Big Maths CLIC sheet. Before you complete the Big Maths Addition Sheet I would like you to think about the following questions and please let us know by email where you are at with your learning and your mental recall of addition.  Click on images below to open 

How many correct answers are you getting each week? 

Are you doing it at your own pace? 

Are you using objects or quick mental recall? 

Are you timing yourself? 

If you are timing yourself, what is your time for completing all 17, is it 5 minutes, 3 minutes, 2 minutes, let us know 

Are you getting them all correct in that time? 

 

Stars - The idea of the Big Maths Addition sheet is to develop mental calculations.  Once you have been successful in completing these weekly sheets correctly, begin to try and complete all calculations in a set time.  Start initially with 3 or 2 minutes and as your mental calculation skills improve reduce the time each week.  The Final goal is to be able to complete these sheets within 30 seconds. The sums are written in different orders each week!   

Hexagons - As stars except perhaps start off with completing in 5 or 4 minutes and slowly reduce the time over the next few weeks. 

Diamonds & Hearts - use objects or number line to help solve additions with no time limit.
