In Maths we are looking at counting in 2s.
When we count we can count by adding 1 at a time. Using your number square, practice counting up to 50 and back to 0.
Some objects which we count come in pairs. Can you think of any objects which come in pairs?
Using your number square, practice counting in twos. Start at 0 and count up. Start with 0, 2, 4, 6, and carry on from there. What do you notice about the numbers?
How many socks can you see? Can you count the pairs?
How many gloves can you see? Count the pairs.
In your book underneath the dot date practice counting in 2s by writing down the numbers in order. Try to reach 50.
In English we are spending some time securing our grammar knowledge. In your book please complete the grammar sheet below.
In computing we have been looking at following instructions and how these help us to reach the result we are looking for.
Can you remember what the word algorithm means?
It is the precise instructions a computer follows to help it get the correct result.
Today log into purple mash (https://www.purplemash.com/sch/greatwood) and look at the elephant you coloured in last week. Do you think yours will look the same or different from the elephants others have painted? You were allowed to choose the colours you wanted to use and so each elephant will look different. If a computer does not have an algorithm to follow, will we get the result we want?
To get the result we want we need to tell the computer what to do. Today we are going to use the instructions below to colour in a bird. This activity has been set as a 2do.
Do you think your bird will look the same as or different to the birds others have coloured?
Read your school reading book or another book from home. Remember to use your phonics to help you read any tricky words.
