Here's your Flashback page to help you remember things that we've already done:
3D shapes have faces (sides), edges and vertices (corners).
A face is a flat or curved surface on a 3D shape. For example, a cube has six faces, a cylinder has three and a sphere has just one.
An edge is where two faces meet. For example, a cube has 12 edges, a cylinder has two and a sphere has none.
A vertex is a corner where edges meet. The plural is vertices. For example, a cube has eight vertices, a cone has one vertex and a sphere has none.
Today's Maths problem of the day.

Today we’re going to be learning about adjectives and similes.
Click on the PDF document when you are ready.
Write out your similes for the sunflowers.
Here are a few hints if you’re struggling:
It’s stalk was as green as ____________________.
They were standing tall and smartly like ________________.
They covered the field like __________________________.
Millions of seeds were squashed in the centre like _____________________________________.
The flowers had petals as ________________________________________.
The sunflowers were as tall as ________________.
The sunflower opened towards the sun like ___________________________________.
These are my completed sentences with similes about sunflowers.
Are yours just as good or even better?
It’s stalk was as green as an emerald.
They were standing tall and smartly like soldiers.
They covered the field like a huge yellow blanket.
Millions of seeds were squashed in the centre like wasps in a hive.
The flowers had petals as bright as the sun itself.
The sunflowers were as tall as giants.
The sunflower opened towards the sun like a smiling face.

Lunchtime: I'm sure that you must be ready for your lunch. See you soon.
We are now going to listen to the first part of the story. Let’s see if your predictions were correct. Please click this link and stop listening at 1.43.
We will listen to more parts of the story each day this week. Remember, you can pause the story at any time to answer the questions. There is a fun maze puzzle for you to complete at the end! Here is your task:
Today in our topic work we are going to describe how daily weather patterns change over time and how weather may be different in inland/coastal areas.
The word inland means a part of a country that is away from the sea.
The word coastal means a place that is on the coast, by the sea.
Click on the PowerPoint when you are ready.
Here are some pointers to help you as you work through the PowerPoint slides.
On the pictogram slides, ask questions about how many days there was rain, cloud, etc. during March and then July. Ask similar questions when discussing the inland and coastal pictograms.
Where do we live? Are we in a place which is inland or coastal? Can you find your local area using Google Maps?
What types of weather would you put on a pictogram for Huddersfield in June?
How would this be different for January?
Would the weather be different in Blackpool, which is coastal?
Weather Task 1:
Plot the given set of data on to your own pictogram. Then select the words which describe inland and coastal weather differences.
Draw a picture showing the weather today in your local area.
Use the internet to look at the weather in Blackpool today.
Draw another picture showing this, writing sentences to describe each weather.
Are you ready to finish your day with a story? Make sure you are sitting nice and comfortably. Click on the video when you're ready.
We hope you have enjoyed your activities today and hope you all had a good day.
Bye for now and see you all tomorrow.
Take care and look after yourself.
