Week 6 (w/c 8.2.21)
For maths this week, we will begin looking at money. We realise that due to current times, many of us have been cashless over the past year; however, if you do have some coins, please find some for your child to have a look at. If you have any notes, you can have a look at those too. Below are fake notes and images of coins.
At 2:15pm using the Maths Zoom
Instead of our maths session today, Mr Stickley will be dropping in from the Heart of England Forest to inspire us to be creative and become den builders! See Mr Stickley's video here
Found this one Year 3. Start watching from 47.44 minutes !!
Maths - looking at pence
Counting pence - video
We would like children to have a go at coin rubbing (using either a wax crayon, coloured pencil or regular pencil on its side).
You might need to secure the coin down with Blutac or some folded tape underneath!
For today's lesson you will need a couple of sheets of plain paper a pencil and black felt tip if you have one.
Maths - looking at pounds

Today we are looking at bank notes and pound coins. If you like, you can try to draw a bank note, looking at all the different details, and researching who is on the bank note and any landmarks on it.

Art - Alberto Giacometti
Following on from our work on skeletons, we will now be looking at sculptor, Alberto Giacometti.
He is known for very, very small sculptures (some no taller than 7cm!) of human figures. His figures had very thin, long arms and long legs, often in movement.
His most famous sculpture 'Walking Man' (1960) inspired this TV advert for a shoe company.
You can also watch 5 year old Miles introducing Giacometti's work at the Tate Museum, here.
Now that you have learnt about Giacometti and seen his work, you are going to use his sculptures to inspire your own sculptures!
See the instructions below. You can also see the Year 3s from last year and what they produced here and also see Mrs Milward's video showing how to twist the foil into a sculpture.
There are two parts
1. Sketching your ideas
2. Making your sculptures (with either just kitchen foil or foil and pipe cleaners)
We cannot wait to see them! You could upload them to Padlet here - make sure to include your name!
Maths = Fun Friday!
The maths session today will be full of games we can play together through Zoom and sharing some of our highlights from the week.
