Good morning J3!
I hope you are all well and staying safe. I started my morning with a Joe Wicks PE lesson. He is doing this every day, 9:00-9:30 on You Tube, if you would like to join in with this.
Remember, lots of websites are giving their resources away for free during our time off school so make sure you have a look at these.
As well as some school work, remember to do things such as baking, planting, colouring, reading, jigsaws, crafts and talking to/ playing with your family.
I will keep updating our class page with things for you to do.
Keep safe and I will see you all when we are back to school.
Love from Miss Garbutt xx
Hello, welcome to Bengal Tiger's class page!
polite determined helpful kind
hard working thoughtful
We hope you are all well and keeping safe. We are missing seeing you all but we have loved seeing some of the activities you have been doing, especially the rainbows and eggs that you have beautifully created! You are doing a fantastic job of teaching your children and we are here to contact if you need any help at all.
Make sure you keep letting us know what you have been up to using the blog section of our school website. We will continue to put up work on our class pages to keep you busy at home.
Over the summer term, your children would have been learning the following in each subject. This may help to give an idea of what the children can be doing at home. Please don’t worry about covering all of this! This is over the whole term and would last until the Summer Holidays. Use as much or as little as you like but remember we are here for anything you need help/ ideas on.
The overall theme for the summer term is Ancient Egyptians. The first half term is planned around the story, The Egyptian Cinderella by Shirley Climo. As you might have guessed, it is a twist on the traditional fairy tale detailing the ‘rags to riches’ narrative of a Greek slave who is favoured by an Egyptian pharaoh. The book is available to see and hear on Youtube where it is read aloud and children can view the wonderful illustrations in the book.
In terms of content, here is a list of objectives that we planned to cover:
The next half term would be looking at the non-fiction text, Visitors’ Guide to Ancient Egypt compiled by Leslie Sims, Phil Clarke, Simon Tudhope and Louie Stowell. This text is harder to come by but there are a wealth of information online and through Twinkl’s free resources for parents about Ancient Egypt.
Length and Perimeter: Recapping units of length, adding and subtracting length (mm, cm and m), calculating the perimeter of different shapes.
Multiplying and Dividing: 3,4 and 8 times tables. Multiplying and dividing 2 digit by 1 digit.
Mass and Capacity: Using scales to measure mass (g and kg), adding and subtracting amounts of mass, measuring capacity (ml and l), adding and subtracting amounts of capacity.
Time: Recapping o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to, telling the time to 5 minutes, telling the time to 1 minute, using the 24 hour clock, finding the duration.
Addition and Subtraction: addition/ subtraction of 2 digit and 2 digit numbers, addition/ subtraction of 3 digit and 2 digit numbers.
Fractions: ordering unit and non- unit fractions, adding fractions, subtracting fractions.
Forces: Identifying forces on an object, comparing how things move on different surfaces, magnetic and non-magnetic materials, magnets attracting and repelling, exploring magnetic poles, compasses.
Light: What a light source is, natural and manmade light sources, the sun as a light source, the difference between night and day, what shadows are and how they are formed, shadow puppets, size and position of shadows throughout the day.
As mentioned previously, our summer term focuses on Ancient Egypt. Usually this is taught through cross-curricular activities though specific objectives for subjects are detailed as follows:
History: Exploring how the pyramids were built, the Nile’s influence on farming; understanding Egyptian social hierarchy; exploring the lives of Ancient Egyptians (homes, food, clothing, customs, beliefs); identifying the achievements of Rameses II and comparing this to Cleopatra; understanding the life and achievements of Howard Carter and the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun (and its curse!); exploring hieroglyphics and the discovery of the Rosetta Stone.
Geography: Locating Egypt on a map/atlas; plotting human and physical features on a map of Modern and Ancient Egypt; exploring the importance of the Nile and explaining why it floods; exploring what factors made ancient humans choose to settle there.
Art: creating an Ancient Egyptian portrait (over a photograph of our profile), observational sketches of artefacts, creating a pharaoh’s death mask, making clay cartouches and carving our name in hieroglyphics.
Music: Exploring music Ancient Egyptians had and what occasions they used music for, creating a chant to please an Egyptian god/goddess e.g. to ask for a good harvest, rain or permission into the afterlife and include a musical accompaniment
Design and Technology: making and using a pneumatic system (air pumps) to make a pop-up mummy toy.
Computing: Using the internet safely and respectfully to research life as an Ancient Egyptian; using word-processing software to present research and extended written pieces.
Keep safe and we will hopefully see you soon!

Over the Easter period, there are several events happening.
Some of these are:
Passover (8-16th April)
Easter ( Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.)
Vaisakhi (13th April)
The anniversary of the Titanic Sinking.( April 15th )
I have attached some resources you can use to further learn about the events coming up.
This website has lots of PE ideas to keep you active at home :)
Teacher's Pet has lots of free resources for a variety of subjects.
There are loads of different literacy ideas to have a go at on Literacy Shed. These are short videos/ pictures to give you some writing inspiration. I have found one that I quite like called 'The Little Shoemaker.' Underneath the video, there are ideas you can use to go with what you have just watched.
Have a go at this one or have a look for a different one you would like to use.
After Easter, we are looking at the Egyptians!
What can you find out about them at home?
What time period were the Egyptians?
Where is Egypt?
What were they famous for?
What did they wear?
What did they eat?
Were they religious?
What is Egypt like now?
Can you find out about hieroglyphs and try and write your name?
Create a leaflet all about Egypt either using pencils and paper or a computer. We have had lots of practise using Microsoft Excel if you have access to this at home.
I would love to see what you create!
This week in Maths we are looking at fractions - Week 5.
A unit fraction has a numerator of 1 e.g. 1/2 1/3 1/4 1/6
A non unit fraction has any number other than 1 for the numerator e.g. 2/3 3/4 4/5 2/6
Can you find 1/2 of different numbers?
Can you find 1/5 of different numbers?
Can you find 2/3 of objects?
Can you find 3/4 of objects?
Use resources around your home to explore amounts of fractions.
An equivalent fraction is a fraction that is the same e.g.
1/2 is the same as 5/10 or 3/6.
3/4 is the same as 6/8 or 15/20.
Can you find any more equivalent fractions?
Can you split a number line into different fractions?
How many parts would you split a number line into for thirds/ fifths/ tenths/ sixths?
Do these parts have to be equal? Why?
Can you use your knowledge of equivalent fractions and number lines to create a number line with equivalent fractions on?
Week 6 - Fractions.
What do all these fractions have in common?
5/ 10 4/8 3/6 10/20 50/100 2/4
What do these fraction have in common?
2/8 4/16 5/20 3/12 1/4 10/40
What do these fractions have in common?
3/9 10/30 6/18 4/12 12/36
Did you guess right?
The first set of fractions are all equivalent to 1/2, the second are equivalent to 1/4 and the third are equivalent to 1/3.
Using your times table knowledge, can you create some of your own equivalent fractions?
Which fraction is larger?
1/10 or 1/3?
1/6 or 1/2?
1/4 or 1/12?
The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.
Imagine a cake, if you cut it into 12 pieces, the slice would be smaller than if you cut the cake into only 3 pieces.
Which is larger?
3/12 or 6/12?
4/5 or 2/5?
7/10 or 9/10?
Can you use < > and = to show which fractions are larger/ smaller than each other?
Look at the fractions below. Can you order them smallest to largest?
3/8 1/8 5/8 7/8
4/5 1/5 2/5 3/5
2/12 6/12 9/12 3/ 12
Summer 1- Week 1 Length and Perimeter.
What is length? What units of measurement do we use to measure the length of something?
Would you measure the following items in mm, cm or m?
A piece of pasta, a pencil, a water bottle, a lorry, an ant, a puppy.
Can you find things around your house and figure out what unit of measurement you would use to measure it?
How many mm are in a cm?
How many cm are in a m?
10mm = 1 cm
100cm = 1 m
Did you guess correctly?
What would the following measurements be in mm?
2cm, 3cm, 5cm, 6cm, 13cm, 15cm, 10cm?
What would the following measurements be in m and cm?
132cm, 348cm, 563cm, 783cm, 740cm, 12400cm
2cm= 20mm, 3cm=30mm, 5cm=50mm, 6cm=60mm, 13cm=130mm 15cm=150cm, 10cm=100mm.
132cm = 1m 32cm, 348cm =3m 48cm, 563cm = 5m 63cm, 783cm = 7m 83cm, 740cm= 7m 40cm, 12400cm= 12m 400cm.
9cm + ____ cm = 15cm
12cm + _____ cm =24cm
4cm + ______ cm =32cm
4cm 5 mm + _____cm ____mm = 15cm
12cm 2mm + _____cm ____mm = 20cm
What two lengths will add up to 15cm?
What two lengths will add up to 23cm?
What two lengths will add up to 13cm 4 mm?
There are three trucks- one orange, one blue and one green.
The orange truck is 2m 30cm shorter than the green truck.
The green truck is 8m 40cm.
The blue truck is 1/2 m longer than the green truck.
What is the length of the orange and the blue truck?
16cm - ______ cm = 3cm
25cm - ______ cm = 12cm
37cm - _____ cm = 29 cm
45cm - _____ cm = 17cm?
3m 12 cm - _____m _____cm = 1m 3 cm
4m 57cm - _____m ______ cm = 2 m 35 cm
8m 36 cm - _____ m _____cm = 3 m 68 cm
What two measurements can I subtract to give the answer 18cm?
What two measurements can I subtract to give the answer 5cm?
What two measurements can I subtract to give the answer 2cm 7mm?
There are 5 coloured trucks. The colour and measurement of the trucks are:
Orange = 508cm Green = 500cm Blue = 490cm Pink = 482cm Purple 475cm
Which truck is 18cm taller than the blue truck?
Which truck is 25 cm shorter than 5m?
Which truck is 26m shorter than the orange truck?
What is the difference in height between the orange and the purple truck?
What is the perimeter of a shape?
The perimeter is the length all the way round the shape for example:
If one side of a square was 4cm, all four sides would be 4 cm as a square has 4 equal sides. To work out the perimeter, I would do the sum 4cm + 4cm + 4 cm + 4cm = 16cm
So the perimeter of a square with sides of 4cm would be 16cm.
Can you work out the perimeter for squares that have one side of :
6cm/ 9cm/ 13cm / 17 cm.
Can you work out the perimeter of an equilateral triangle (all three sides the same) with 1 side being:
5cm / 8cm / 11cm/ 20cm / 32cm
Can you have a go at drawing some shapes of your own and figuring out what the perimeter is of each one?
Why don't you try shapes like: rectangles, pentagons, hexagons, octagons?
Week 2 Multiplication:
What do you notice about the calculations?
5 x 4 = 20 50 x 4 = 200
4 x 5 = 20 4 x 50 = 200
What other calculations can you think of using 3 x 5 = 15?
30 x 5 = 150 5 x 30 = 150
50 x 3 = 150 3 x 50 = 150
What other calculations can you make using 10 x 4 =40? 2 x 6? 2 x 10? 7 x 5?
Recap your 3, 4 and 8 times table. Think about multiplying as well as dividing.
Week 3 - Multiplication and Division.
This week we are looking at multiplying 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers.
Can you solve these calculations? Remember to draw base 10 or counters to help you solve the calculation.
44 x 2
23 x 4
46 x 3
14 x 4
54 x 2
Think of some more of your own. Can you multiply a 2 digit number by 4 or 8?
When you are dividing, remember it is splitting the number into equal groups. If I was dividing 14 by 2, I would split my 14 counters into 2 equal groups. I could also split 14 into 10s and ones e.g. 14 = 10 and 4. 2 goes into 10 5 times and 2 goes into 4 2 times. I could then add this together e.g. 5 + 2 = 7. So 14 divided by 2 = 7.
There is no right or wrong way to help you work out division, have a go at these calculations below.
I have included help sheets to show you how we would do it in class.
84 divided by 2
84 divided by 4
66 divided by 2
66 divided by 3
Try these using partitioning e.g:
33 divided by 3.
33 = 30 + 3
30 divided by 3 = 10
3 divided by 3 = 1
10 + 1 = 11
33 divided by 3 = 11
48 divided by 4
69 divided by 3
86 divided by 2
Can you think of some more of your own?
Using what you already know about your times tables, which other multiplication and division facts might you know?
e.g. If I know that 36 divided by 4 = 9, then i know that 360 divided by 4 = 90.
28 divided by 4=
280 divided by 4 =
12 divided by 3=
120 divided by 3 =
25 divided by 5 =
250 divided by 5 =
16 divided by 8 =
160 divided by 8 =
We are also looking at bar models this week. Use the resource sheet to look at how we would show this.
Week 4 Mass
What is mass?
What units of measurement can we measure mass in?
1kg = 1000g
Would you measure the items in grams or kilograms?
A tin of soup.
A bag of flour.
A bar of chocolate.
Can you use kitchen scales to measure the mass of different items?
Can you estimate the mass of something and then weigh it to see if you were right?
Which is heavier?
7kg or 8g?
12g or 5 kg?
400g or 4kg?
6kg or 760g?
1kg 500g or 2kg?
3000g or 3kg 100g?
How do you know?
Can you change the following to grams?
Can you write a mass larger than 3kg 500g?
Can you write a mass smaller than 2kg 100g?
What would the total be?
600g + 300g =
200g + 500g =
4kg + 1kg 400g=
3kg 450g + 4kg 200g =
4kg 105g + 3kg 400g =
8kg 600g + 1kg 500g =
What would the answer be?
750g - 300g =
620g- 520g =
2kg 400g- 1kg 200g=
7kg 350g - 4kg 200g =
9kg 432g - 6kg 574g =
Can you make your own addition and subtraction calculations using different amounts of grams and kilograms?
Can you use measurement to make something at home?

Our topic this half term is Heroes and Villains. We have been looking at where the best place for a secret lair would be and have spotted the cities the Superheroes have been hiding in around the UK.
We are currently using our shading techniques to draw a city scape. We can't wait to show you them when they are done!
In English we have been reading the book Gangsta Granny by David Wallaims.
We have loved reading this book and have written letters, descriptions, acted out a heist of our own as well as written out own heist story!
In Maths, we are focusing on addition and subtraction of 3 digit numbers. We are challenging ourselves by crossing over the 1s and 10s.
