Hi everyone.

Thanks for letting me share your work, it is lovely to be able to put it up on the website, and thanks again for being brave and letting me show everyone. If you are happy to have your work shared then just let me know when you send it in. yes

Slide Show 


Today we are going to continue to work on our mental maths, and after looking at addition and subtraction we are going to move on to multiplication and division. I've put two sheets below for you to work on (don't panic though, you only have to do one!). The first one looks at 3s, 4s, 5s, and 8s, and the second one looks at nearly all of the tables so choose which one you think is right for you. Tables can be a bit tricky so I've put on a multiplication square below to help you if you need it (and please do use it if you need a bit of help), you can even print it out if you want to keep it (and who said teachers weren't kind? cheeky).

Once you have got the answers they will make a word , and the words are all in the wordsearch below your questions. The wordsearch is optional though so it is just a bit of fun.

If you are super speedy at this or want a bit more practice then please go on Rockstar maths.

So far this week we have created a strange animal and described a setting using some amazing vocabulary. Today we are going to continue to work on our describing skills to make our work sound as interesting as we can. To do this we will add adjectives to the nouns to make our sentences more interesting. This mean we will be doing.... expanded noun phrases. smiley



In keeping with our sea theme for the last few days I've put a sea picture below. In each sentence on the first part of the sheet a phrase is underlined. I would like you to sneak a word between the determiner and the noun to describe the noun. 
Some of the words are a bit tricky so you might want to check what they mean with a grown up or use a dictionary. 

For example, "The shark " could become "The grey shark" or  "The stealthy, grey shark". 

If you want to take on the super bonus challenge you could change lots of the sentence, but that is up to you. 
Eg , "The stealthy grey shark swam swiftly beneath the ferocious, crashing waves".



After you have done your first five have a go at writing a few of your own. You can use your imagination for this and you could imagine all sorts of sea creatures. 

Phew, that was a busy morning! We just need to squeeze in half an hour of reading too. Your reading could be at any time though, so you could do it to unwind before bed if you wanted.  I always like to read at bedtime after a busy day, I'm just finishing reading "Tiger attacks!", it is by Claude Face.

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.
