# Wednesday 13th January

Good morning Class Four, here is a morning message to start your day:

PE

I hope you are enjoying the active challenges each day. We had a go at the 'Cross the River' activity in school yesterday - it was really good fun and got quite competitive!

Here is today's active challenge. Yoga is very much like Pilates so hopefully you will really enjoy it. As you do each stretch, try and concentrate on your breathing, remember to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.

And don't forget that PE With Joe is back at 9am again today!

Maths

On Wednesdays, we always do our Times Tables tests. Click on the link below to find the times tables test you need (if you're not sure, send me an email and I'll remind you which one you need). We normally have about 5 minutes for this in class as the grids have lots of questions on! Once you're finished, click the answers link and then you will be able to mark it - let me know how you get on so I can update it on my tracker. Good luck!

Today you are going to be continuing with your work on Factors, but today you are going to be learning about Prime Numbers. Start by watching the Prime Number video for your year group and then have a go at the worksheet. I’ve attached the answers so you can check your work.

Here are some key words you will need to know:

Multiple – A multiple is a number in the times table of a given number. 24 is a multiple of 6 because it is in the 6 times table.

Factor – A factor is a whole number which divides exactly into another whole number. 2 is a factor of 6 because 6 ÷ 2 = 3.

Prime Number – A prime number is a number which only has two factors, 1 and itself. For example, the number 3 only has two factors: 1 and 3. This means 3 is a prime number.

Consecutive Numbers – Consecutive numbers are numbers which follow each other in order continuously. For example, 3, 4, 5, 6 are consecutive numbers, they increase by 1 each time. 2, 4, 6 are not consecutive numbers as these are jumping in 2s not increasing by 1 each time.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a go at the Prime Number Extension Task below. I've attached answers so you can check your work.

Yesterday you spent time carrying out some more research about the Mayan Civilisation and then planned your fact page ready for today.

Today, you have this session to create your fact page. Here are some things to think about when you are writing:

• If you include any pictures, remember to also use captions to tell the reader what the pictures show.

Once you have finished creating your fact page, read back through it and check it carefully.

Today, Mrs Soley has planned a lesson for you based on Mayan pottery. The document below has all the information and instructions you need for this task.

When I was doing some research about Mayan pottery, I came across this video. I thought it was really interesting as it shows how the Mayans created the different colours and patterns by adding layers of clay. You might want to have a look and find out too.

2.45pm Teams Live

At 2.45pm, you can join our Teams session online. Today, I'm going to be reading you a story and asking you questions as we go along. You can use the chat bar to get involved and share your ideas and answers with the rest of the class.

I would like everyone to bring a joke with them to the meeting which you would like to share with the class - I know how much you love telling me jokes at school at lunchtimes so I'm hoping there will be some good ones!
