Today we explored position. We looked at our own area around us. Instead of the classroom we looked in our own space. So where we were sat whilst on zoom.
Miss Yarsley was sat in the Kitchen.
She could see the kettle, TV, fridge.
Behind her was the wall.
She was sat on top of a chair.
Have a go at talking about what is : above, below, next to, infront, behind you.
Then choose 2 objects for example Miss Yarsley chose the fridge and the cooker. What is in between those 2 objects?
My answer: In between the fridge and cooker is the kettle.
Today in maths we looked at making a grid, can be either 4x3 or 4x4:-
Now try giving directions- using Left, Right, 1/4 turn (turning your pencil to face to correct way), forwards, backwards.
Can you see how the triangle has turned 1/2 a turn. Remember for 1/2 it doesn't matter if you turn anti-clockwise or clockwise. You will always get to the same place.
It is when you look at 1/4 then you need to look at anti-clockwise or clockwise more wisely.
Day 2 - 20th May
Today in maths the children continued to explore position and direction. They are now able to demonstrate how to move their object and themselves in different directions. Some children also became the leader.
Have a try at this game-
(Miss Yarsley) says turn clockwise 1/4 turn
(Miss Yarsley) says turn anti-clockwise 1/4 turn
(Miss Yarsley) says turn clockwise 1/2 turn
(Miss Yarsley) says turn clockwise 3/4 turn
(Miss Yarsley) says turn clockwise full turn
Make it fun by starting at different points on your clock. Remember we look at 12, 3, 6 and 9 (as your different points). Which is just like a compass looking at North, South, East, West.
18th May 2020
Have a go at finding fractions using liquids. (ML and L)
Find a desert spoon (10ml) and then a tea spoon (5ml). Compare the sizes, if you get 2 tea spoons, does it make a similar amount to your desert spoon? It should do.
Have a look at a recipe - .I.e. a pancake recipe. - It may make 20 pancakes but you only need 10 pancakes as it's just for you and your parent. What do I need to do?
Thats right 10 is 1/2 of 20. So we need to half all of the ingredients.
On the original recipe it asked for 200ml of milk. But I need to 1/2 it. How much milk do I need?
Remember you are halving the total which is 200ml. First take a 0 away to make it easier. What is half of 20? Thats it 10, so what is half of 200? 10 + the missing 0 which makes 100.
Also remember todays unit is ml so my answer is 100ml.
Have a go at using a jug and finding some measurements, remember using liquid you sometimes have to estimate. You may want to do it outside. Look at finding 1/4 and 1/2 of your total liquid needed.
