Did anybody else see the International Space Station last week? I did- here is the view from my garden. For more information about the ISS, go to https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/ - this will also show you whereabouts it is in real time too. Mr Anns

(Tenuous) Easter Algebra

(Tenuous) Easter Algebra 1

The children in my Reading Gladiator groups have enjoyed some of the poetry books we have read - more than they thought they would! The Poetryline website has videos of poets performing their poems and is worth a look if you want to listen to something other than a story.

If you want to listen to something that will make you smile and laugh, I would recommend looking at A.F Harrold or Allan Ahlberg.

 

Today, we are going to do some reasoning with grammar:

 

 

Pick one of the groups and tell me which is the odd one out. Remember, there could be more than one answer- just make sure that you explain why!

  1. there, to, main, which, who
  2. which, when, that, who
  3. said, screamed, shouted, told, stamped
  4. liked, talked, walked, shouted
  5. table, happiness, car, Sarah
  6. milk, talk, run, happy
  7.  The boy ate the sandwich. The girl played football. The car was driven.

 

Example:

In number 2, I think that 'when' is the odd one out because it is a subordinating conjunction and all of the others are relative pronouns.

The sad face is 7 and the happy face is 6 (factors of 42 that add up to 13 and 6 and 7).

25/3/20- today's algebra (solution will be put up later)- calculate the sad face but make sure that you have a happy face!

24/3/20- Algebra solution:

14

 

10 + 10 + 10 = 30   (30 divided by 3 = 10)

10 + 4 + 4 = 18    (18 - 10 = 8, 8 divided by 2 = 4)

4 - 2 = 2 

1 + 10 + 3 = 14     (1 half coconut, not 2 so 2 divided by 2 = 1 and 3 bananas, not 4)

Therefore, ?? is 14.

The word of the day today is:

 

tinge

verb- to colour slightly.

noun- a trace of colour.

 

Can you use it in a sentence or a paragraph? What about finding some synonyms or antonyms?
