Ordering and Comparing Numbers

Zoom call at 9am for the first 15 minutes (log in details the same as yesterday). Please attend if possible.

In this lesson we are going to revisit the ordering and comparing number work we did earlier in the year.


When we are comparing numbers we actually look at the hundreds first, then if they are the same we look at the tens and finally if they are the same we look at the ones. Be careful because this is a different order from when we are adding or subtracting.


Order these numbers from smallest to largest…

812              432              210              487             


I can see one number only has 2 hundreds so that is the smallest.

We then have two numbers with 4 hundreds so we look at the tens. I can see one only has 3 tens whilst the other has 8 tens so I know 432 is smaller than 487.

Finally we have a number with 8 hundreds so we know that is the biggest.

Therefore the order is

210              432              487              812


Sometime we also like to use symbols instead of words in Maths, so for comparing two numbers we can use Carlos the Crocodile!

What number does Carlos eat… that’s right the LARGEST number.


10.15 – 11.15


Let’s think back to our Science lesson on magnets.

Using the words “attract” and “repel” can you explain what happens if the two south poles of two magnets are moved together? What happens if the two north poles are moved together? And lastly what if a south pole and the north pole of two magnets are pushed together?

Next, below is a sheet listing things you would find around the home. Can you predict if they are magnetic? For example, would a paper clip be attracted to a magnet? If so tick the “magnetic” box and if not tick the “non-magneitc” box. Can you think about any other things to test? What about my mug of tea? What about your favourite toy?

This can be done whether you have a magnet (on a fridge maybe) or not. If you do have one, you could check your answers and see if you were right.

Then finally, I know how much you all love a word search, so please see below a Magnetism word search for you to attempt.

Zoom call at 11.15am for the first 15 minutes (log in details the same as yesterday). Please attend if possible.

Time for a Comprehension lesson!

Let’s remind ourselves of our rules to help us with this. How many can you remember?

Ill start you off… how many times should you read the text before starting the questions? What do we do to highlight the key information? What do you do if you are stuck on a question?

This text is an extract from a fictional Dick King-Smith book. Can you remember what fiction means? An extract means the text is part of a larger book so we might not have the beginning or the end, but the extract does make sense on its own.

If you are struggling to read some of this text, why not read it with your adult. You could try team reading, where you read some of the words and your adult reads the ones you don’t.

Give it a go and see what you can do.



1.00pm – 1.20pm

Quiet Reading Time

Did you find a comfortable spot for your reading yesterday? If so why not use it today. Or maybe you can find a new place today? Who can find the strangest place? Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Also watch this space for an amazing idea from Mrs Potts. Try to note down how many pages you have read as we are going to use this for a challenge later in the week.



1.20pm – 2.20pm

Maths fluency

Today’s fluency lesson is on arrays and what multiplication statement it shows.

This will also get you up another rung of the Ladder of Success so good luck!


If we have this array, what is the multiplication statement it is showing?

How many rows are there? How many columns are there?

There are three columns and there are four in each so this is showing 3 x 4.

Can you remember the other multiplication statement this shows?

If it is showing 3 x 4… it also shows 4 x 3.

Then to answer the multiplication you count the total number of triangles.


Is there another way of grouping these to show another multiplication statement?

You could also create two equal groups of six, so it now shows 2 x 6 and 6 x 2.

Please attempt the arrays found on the sheet below and see how many multiplication facts you can come up with for each. Then demonstrate how well you understand arrays by drawing your own when given the multiplication statement.


2.20pm – 2.45pm

Another opportunity for us to read more of our class read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I loved reading some of your book reviews on it and to see you are enjoying it as much as I am. What’s going to happen to Veruca in The Nut Room? Let’s find out together at 2.20om
