Westonzoyland Primary School ‘Achieving, Learning and Growing Together’

Tuesday

Tuesday 5th May

 

Good morning all! Today is Grammar day in English where we will be looking at past and present tense. In maths, we are moving on to statistics and will be answering questions by comparing data. Our final lesson for today is Music, where I have asked you to try out a BBC Bitesize Music lesson. I hope you all have a lovely day smiley 

English: Grammar

 

Our grammar focus this week is the past and present tense.

The past tense is used for things that have already happened. For example: 'He was sticky.' The present tense is used when something is happening now or when something happens regularly. For example: 'He is sticky.'

6 Minute Grammar: How to use narrative tenses

Task 1

Please complete the following table, changing words between past and present tense. I have done the first one for you as an example.

 

Past Tense

Present Tense

Ran

Run

Jumped

 

 

Baking

 

Closing

Went

 

 

Have

 

Say

Was

 

 

Telling

 

Hear

Saw

 

 

Can you think of your own words to make this table even longer?

 

Task 2

Pick at least 3 words from the present tense column. Now write two sentences for each word you have picked, one in past tense and one in present tense. 

 

For example:

I am going to run the golden mile today.

Yesterday I ran the golden mile with my friends.

 

It would really blow my socks off if you managed to write a sentence for every word in the table! 

Maths: Statistics

 

 

Last week, we looked at temperature. This week I have used some data about temperatures for us to analyse. Look at the following charts and tables and use it to answer the questions below.

 

 

  1. Which day was the hottest?
  2. Which day was the coolest?
  3. Which day had the most rainfall?
  4. Which days had the same amount of rainfall?
  5. What is the difference between the warmest day and the coolest day?
  6. Compare both the rainfall and the temperature – which day do you think had the best weather – explain your answer.

 

Challenge:  Look at the weather forecast for this week (concentrate on temperature). Make a bar chart just like the bar chart of rainfall in my example. Think about how your axis is going to go up – will it go up in 2s, 10s, 1s?

Revision

Are you still practicing your 3 times table from last week? Watch Part One of the 3x table adventure then see if you can write all of you 3x tables in a list. I'll start you off:

 

1x3=3

2x2=6

..........

3X TIMES TABLE ADVENTURE PART 1

Billy and Digit are on their way to meet Professor Dougal to see his amazing number generating machine to learn the 3 times table. Will a crash landing stop ...

Today I would like you to do some music for your final task. I have included a link to a BBC Bitesize music lesson, which has lots of activities and link to get your voices warmed up! It's a little different to the things we have done before so I hope you enjoy it! Although they are split into Year 2 and Year 3, it doesn't matter which one you choose to do, go for the one you find the most interesting. Just click on this link and it will take you straight to the page:
