Maths

Having looked at how to multiply & divide by 10, 100 & 1000 this week, we are going to look at when we are most likely to use this in our lives: converting between units of measurements.

Remember, the following facts:

1l = 1000ml

1kg = 1000kg

1m = 100cm

1cm = 10mm

So if I have a sunflower that is 214cm tall and I want to know how tall it is in metres, I would divide 214cm by 100 (as there are 100cm in each metre) to give me the height: 2.14m

Use the website below for any guidance.

## Maths Help - Converting Units of Length

English

I'm going to go through some comprehension in our Google Classroom Meeting. Make sure you are logged in and ready to write by 10:20am as we will again only have 15 minutes of live video. You will need your plain exercise book ready with something to write with.

We will complete pages Page 8/9 (The Lost Diary of Snow White by Boyd Bent) & Page 10/11 (The Yellow Train) of you CGP Comprehension Book TWO.

RE

What is eternity?

Mrs Riley has set us our RE work as usual today. I have uploaded the instructions and the work to complete on Google Classroom. Log in and have a look on there.

Log back into Google Classroom for a live reading of our class reader "Blitzed" by Robert Swindells. We're read the first 4 chapters and will soon find out about George's antics on his street!

Make sure you are logged in by 12:50pm to ensure you don't miss any of the story!

Art

Carrying on with our Still Life work, we are today going to look at drawing crockery or items from our kitchens (e.g. plates, jars, bottles etc).

Again, have a look on the videos below for guidance on drawing these sort of items. I was very impressed last time so looking forward to how we get on today!

Grab 2 (or more) different objects from your kitchen (e.g. plate and ketchup bottle). We're going to sketch it out. Make sure there is a plain background behind it to help you notice the detail. Take your time with lots of little faint lines to create your image. First draw the outline of the object, before moving into adding in the detail of it before finally thinking about the shadows/scuff marks that are the finer detail of it.

You don't have to colour it in but you may want to add shading to show the lighter and darker parts of the shoe.

## How To Draw Fireflies In A Jar

Obviously this jar has fireflies in but you could change this easily enought to add your own details!
