FRIDAY FUN ZOOM!

This week and next week we will do show and tell in our Friday zoom.  This week will be those of you who have a surname beginning with the letters A - M.  Next week it will be N - Z.  Bring something to talk about! This could be a toy, a piece of work, something you have achieved or even a pet!

MATHS:

Tuesday:

Children will be introduced to key terminology such as longer, shorter and taller. They will understand that the language used is dependent on what they are measuring and comparing. They will understand that height is a type of length. They will be exposed to lengths equal to each other.
They will compare up to three objects and select the correct term to compare the items.
Ask questions such as:
Which is the smallest / biggest?
Which is taller / shorter / longer?

Wednesday:

Children will be introduced to key terminology such as longer, shorter and taller. They will understand that the language used is dependent on what they are measuring and comparing. They will understand that height is a type of length. They will be exposed to lengths equal to each other.
They will compare two objects using correct terminology (depending on the context) to create their own sentences and descriptions. 
Ask questions such as:
Would we use the term longer or taller?
What is the different between height and length?
Which is taller / shorter / longer?

Thursday:

As children are familiar with the terminology longer / shorter / taller they will progress from comparing two objects to comparing a set of up to three objects in various pictorial contexts. They will be able to solve various problems involving comparisons.

Ask questions such as:
Would we use the term longer or taller?
Which is taller / shorter / longer?

Can you compare these objects?
Can you create your own sentence to compare the following objects?

Friday:

Children use non-standard units, such as cubes and paper clips to measure length and height. Children will understand the units they use need to be of equal length. Children need to understand that non-standard units should be exactly in line with one end of the object with no gaps between them to get an accurate measurement. In this lesson children will measure practically using equipment.

Ask questions such as:
What would we use to measure __?
How many cubes long / tall is __ ?
How do we know which unit to measure with?

Today the children will be talking about money!

Start the lesson with some open-ended key questions:

  • What is money?
  • Where does money come from?
  • How do we use money?
  • How does money benefit us?
  • What would the world be like if people didn’t have money?
  • Read the story ‘Harold’s Money’ (see below) to your child.  Ask the questions in italics as you go through the story.

    Follow up the story with some review questions:

    • How much money did Harold have in his money box to start with? [£1.50]
    • How much did the book cost that he wanted? [£10.00]
    • Where did Harold get the rest of the money from? [Derek owed him a pound, birthday money and from doing jobs for his mum]
    • Why do you think Harold decided to get the book from the library instead?
    • Why do you think Harold decided to buy his mum some flowers?
    • How do you think Harold felt when he bought his mum some flowers?
    • Why did Harold’s mum say she couldn’t afford to buy anything until the end of the month?
    • Where will she get her money from at the end of the month?
    • What are bills?
    • What sort of things do you think the bills were for?
    • What do we spend money on?
    •  

    Following on from the story ask your child to list some of the things that their family spends money on.

    In the middle of a piece of paper (their red book can be used) ask your child to draw a picture of their family at home. Around the family they can draw or write all the things they can think of that their family spends money on.
