Hello children! Hope you are well. It has been a strange year for us all. I want to say thank you to each and every one of you for keeping up the good spirit of learning and, especially to those children that came by to our book swap with their lovely smiles every week and those who regularly shared their amazing home learning. I am so proud of every single one of you for being so brave and positive. I know sometimes you feel upset and worried because you are not able to see your teachers and your friends but I want you to know we are thinking of you at all times and wishing you well. I am looking forward to seeing you all in the next week or so.
Thank you Mohammed. I am so pleased to see you using inverted commas for direct speech. You have been constantly sharing your good learning with us which is very encouraging. Fantastic maths learning where you have used equal groups and your times table to solve those division problems. Superb effort Mohammed!
Thank you Maddie for your home learning. What a great effort in your literacy challenges. You came up with some funny things that can happen to Grandma. Today you can use these ideas to write the next section of your chapter. Fantastic effort in your maths learning. Make sure you are practsing your times table so when it comes to division you can use your facts to solve problems. Well done Maddie!
How did you get on writing the first section of the chapter 4? Have a read of your section to see if you have added direct speech and clearly showed which character is speaking. Did you remember to add inverted commas and used other verbs instead of said? Today, we will write the next section where George feeds the medicine and we record Grandma's reaction. We have done little activities about making our sentences so you should have some ideas in your books already.
This is the first section of chapter 4 that you should have done yesterday using your own ideas and dialogues. Today, you will write from the last sentence from this chapter,
"Open your mouth wide, Grandma," he said, "and I'll pop it in."
What is the next event in this chapter? You will write a paragraph about Grandma's reaction after swallowing the medicine.
Focus on using the verbs from Monday's lesson and time connectives to show the order. Make sure you are writing in past tense.
Verbs: bulged, puffed, swelled, expanded, shot up, tossed, sprang, blew, crashed, ascended, exploded, flew, float, plummeted
Time connectives: first, soon, then, next, meanwhile, before, afterwards, just then, suddenly, several moments later, without warning
What is special about 2 times table? It doubles the number right?
Double of 3 is 6
3 x 2 = 6
What about division then? What happens to number when you divide by 2?
Half of 6 is 3
6 ÷ 2 = 3
When we divide a number by 2 the answer is half of that number.
