Our Maths session will use a video to teach us and this will ask you to pause from time to time to answer questions. The questions are on a worksheet that you can view on your screen. Answer the questions in your Exercise Book at the Maths end.
You will use the worksheet and the video together.

Last Monday you may have created a list of words to spell. I reminded you each day last week to practise them. Now would be a good time to ask a grown-up to test you on your spelling list. How did you do?
It is important that we learn to spell well and grow the vocabulary that we can use and spell. Each week we will practise our spelling.
Firstly let's check the basic lists that we are expected to learn. Look at these lists - Start with List 1 as you need to know all these first, then List 2 as you need to know all these next, then List 3 and so on. As you start to look make a personal list of 5 words that you know you need to learn to spell. As soon as you have 5 words on your personal list STOP looking. Make these the first 5 words to learn for this week.
Think about ways you could learn these e.g:
SPELLING RULES and PATTERNS
Your second set of words to learn this week belong to a set that follow a spelling pattern or rule. Choose which set of words is the right level of challenge for you to add to your week's personal list to learn:
Now click on the links below to practice your chosen set of words. Learn first by clicking the SPELLING TILES button and play the games and then click the PRACTISE button. You can finish by doing the TEST (you do not need to register or log in)..
On Friday you examined skulls and teeth.
You will know that the type of teeth animals have depends on what diet they have... what they eat.
Animals that eat just meat are carnivores.
Animals that eat just plants are herbivores
Animals that eat both meat and plants are omnivores.
What are you?
Watch this video to refresh Friday's work...
In the animal kingdom animals of course source their own food. We know that they have certain things that they eat. Carnivores hunt other animals to eat. Herbivores eat plants.
In different habitats different animals and plants live and what eats what is a relationship called a food chain.
ALL food chains begin with a green plant. A plant is called a producer because it produces its own food from sunlight.
A herbivore or an omnivore might eat that plant - this animal is a primary consumer because it consumes the plant.
A carnivore or an omnivore might then eat that animal - this animal is also a consumer - a secondary consumer.
Some food chains may contain 3 living things. Others may be longer.
The animal that comes last or top of the food chain is called an Apex Predator.
Now watch this video...
Time to Make Some Food Chains
In your exercise book I would like you to create some food chains - starting with a green plant - and then consumers. I would like some illustrations too.
So here is an idea - draw a chain and then illustrate and write in and around it to show your chain....
Can you follow the video below to draw a chain?
or construct some food chains like this....
Can you create a chain with more than 3 living things?
Can you create a chain based in the sea or ocean?
Can you create a chain with a human in it?
Can you create a chain with based in a very cold place?
