Finding the total lengths of more than on object

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

To recap from yesterday, explain to an adult what the marvellous mistake is in this picture.

Today, we will looking to find the total length of more than one object. This would be an important thing to know if you worked on a ferry.

You would need to know how long the vehicles were to make sure there was enough room to fit them onboard. By adding the lengths of each vehicle, you would know whether or not there would be room for another.


Let's take a look:

To find the total length of straws, we must first measure them using a ruler.

  • Green straw = 9cm.
  • Red straw = 7cm.

By adding the two lengths together, we can find the total length of both straws.

  • 9cm + 7cm = 16cm.


To find out if there is enough room on the leaf for our worm and caterpillar, we would again need to know their total length.

  • 12cm + 7cm = 19cm.


Task 1:

Measure 4 new objects that are smaller than your ruler. Remember to line up your object to the zero first and track your finger along the ruler to see how far along the ruler your object measures. Record these in your yellow maths book remembering to tell me your unit of measure (centimetres, cm).


Task 2:

Find the total length of two of your objects by adding their lengths together. Write it down as a number sentence in your maths book and solve it using whichever method you find best.

Repeat this until you have added all combinations of your objects together.

Challenge: Can you add the lengths of three of your objects?


10:35 - 11:35


Using suffixes "er" and "est"

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

You were excellent at adding the "er" and "est" suffixes yesterday, let's see if you can continue to use them in your writing.

  • "er" suffix
    • When we add this suffix to an adjective, it will be when comparing two objects or things. With the "er" suffix, you will be describing one of your objects as being more strongly matched to your adjective.
      • small - smaller
      • The mouse is smaller than the cat.
  • "est" suffix
    • We use this suffix when our adjective is describing just one object or thing. The "est" suffix shows that something is the most of the adjective you are using to describe it. It will also have the word "the" before the adjective.
      • clean - cleanest
      • Year 1 has the cleanest tables.


Task 1:

Write these sentences in your blue writing books using the correct suffix.

  1. The green sock is long____ than the red sock.
  2. Yaser tells the great____ stories.
  3. Roman is the tall____ in the class.
  4. Mrs Jordan is fast____ than Miss Millington.

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

We are going to continue to find more places where the wild things are. Take a look at the PowerPoint below to explore some more.

Task 1:

Draw a map of your very own Kenyan National Park. Think carefully about the things that you would see in Kenya that would be different to here in the UK.

Include a key to show some of the symbols on your map. Be sure to keep all of the symbols you use the same.

You must include:

  • One or more rivers
  • Hills or mountains
  • Swamps
  • Airstrips for landing your tourists

Why is colour is important in art?

Follow the link below to a recorded lesson from the Oak National Academy.

In this lesson, we will be thinking all about how colours can make us feel. We will begin to learn about the properties of colour and how to select colours for our art to express an emotion. At the end of the lesson we will be drawing a self-portrait in our sketch books using the colours that express how we are feeling today. This lesson includes some physical activity and equipment beyond pen, paper or pencil. Please make sure your child is adequately supervised.
