Hi everyone. 

I hope you had a good day yesterday. Thank you for all of the work you sent to me, I really enjoyed looking at the amazing creatures you sent in. Happy Birthday to Abbey for yesterday! I hope you had a lovely day in the sunshine. 


Today we are going to work on our mental maths and make sure that we are getting really quick at working things out in our heads. I love playing dice games to help with maths because it can make it really fun and exciting. Hopefully you have some dice hidden away somewhere at home (you might have to raid an old version of monopoly that is gathering dust on the top of the cupboard). 

First, can you go on Rockstar maths and see how many coins you can earn in ten minutes to get warmed up, rock legends. 

After that we are going to play the dice games. I've put some pictures below with different games on for you to look at. Each one has a different difficulty so feel free to try any of them and see which you find the best challenge for you. Some of these you will be able to do in your head, but if you need to work your answers out on a piece of paper then that is fine. Each of these can test your maths in a different way so try a few of them and see what you think.  I've put some notes under each one about how you could make it a bit more challenging, but feel free to make up your own versions too if you want. 


You could also multiply the numbers together to make it harder, or you could multiply three dice together. Maybe you want to square or even cube the number! I love this game because there are so many ways you can change it. 


 We have played this one lots in class, it is one or my favourites to help with place value. If you want to add more digits to make it more of a challenge you could go up to 4 or maybe even five places! You could then see who could make the smallest number instead. 

 Another way to make it harder would be to start with a larger number at the bottom, so maybe use a 3 digit number on the bottom row. 


For our English work today we are going to continue thinking about the film we looked at yesterday about the boy who finds a magic hat. You can watch the film again by clicking on the link below.

This time though I would like you to think about the setting that the story takes place in and describe it using some wonderful language. You could think about the area around the house and what it looks like, or you could think about the house itself. Maybe you would like to describe somewhere different - I don't mind at all if you would like to use your imaginations and create your own settings. 

Like yesterday I would like you to draw and label your picture of the setting. Don't forget that the words you use can really make a difference to how the read imagines your setting. If I said "the house was dark and mysterious" it makes it sound much different from "the house was surrounded by beautiful flowers".  Also, don't forget those full stops and capital letters. yes

Slide Show 

A good piece of writing makes the reader think they are somewhere else, so I can't wait to read your work so I can imagine I am somewhere interesting after being in lock-down for so long. Are you going to send me somewhere scary, somewhere fun? I've included some words below that might give you some ideas to help you. 




Please don't forget to do your 30 minutes of daily reading too. yes

Afternoon activities.

The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about countries and cities around the world. Learning may focus on different cultures and traditions, famous landmarks, food and clothing. 

 ● Virtual Explorer - ​What are the continents of the world? Where are they located? What languages are spoken in these continents? Ask your child to use Google Maps to explore a continent of their choice. Can they create a continent fact file or choose a particular country they are interested in and create an information guide including the weather, tourist locations, landmarks, weather, traditional music, food, flags. 



 ● Mask Making -  ​Ask your child to use paper or cardboard and a range of materials around the home to design and create their own African mask. Can they find out their importance to African culture?



 ● Dance Around the World - ​Use ​SafeYoutube​ to dance along to some different cultural dances from around the world, such as the Brazilian Samba, the traditional Diwali stick dance or the Spanish Flamenco. Your child can design a cultural costume for their favourite dance and label it with suitable materials.

 ● Speak the Language - ​Encourage your child to discuss with their family the links they and their family have to the wider world. Find out places family members have visited on holiday, work/business links or simply countries they would like to visit in the future. Have a go at learning some simple phrases in different languages from around the world and write the phrases using the colours of the flag for that country.

 ● Tribal Traditions - ​Ask your child to find out about the cultural differences, customs and traditions of an indiginous group/tribe from around the world such as the Maori people, Native Americans, the Yanomami tribe or the African Maasai tribe. Ask your child, why it is important indigious people are remembered? Can your child create some artwork inspired by one of the tribes? 

I hope you have a great day and have fun completing the tasks.
