Hello and welcome back to another week of home learning.
How was your weekend? Did you do anything exciting? Let us know on Purple Mash, we love heading what you get up to.
Here is your Mood Check Monday task.
English - Writing
Over the next few weeks we are going to undertake a writing project. We will be using this as an opportunity to practise all of the grammar we have been revisiting over the past few weeks.
This is a chance for you to let your creative juices flow and use as much of your amazing imaginations as you can.
English - Reading
This week, we're continuing with The Ickabog.
In Chapter 6 we are transported into the palace gardens where there is a bit of trouble brewing:
"As long as they didn’t pull the peacocks’ tails, jump in the fountains, or climb the statues, the children of the palace servants were allowed to play in the courtyard after school."
The children love to play in the garden but Spittleworth and Flapoon weren’t fond of children at all. They thought the little brats made far too much noise in the late afternoon.
This week, we're returning to addition, it's a topic we have already looked at a few times this year. It is really important we are able to get an accurate answer every time we solve an addition problem. Remember, we are working on answering it as quickly as possible while still getting the answer correct.
Below is a reminder of how we solve addition problems.
REMEMBER: It is really important to break down (partition) the numbers before you start adding.
Last week, we looked at different ways of writing our names.
Today we're going to investigate some of the oldest books in the British Library. Just like your writing last week, they are decorated in lots of different ways.
Have a look at them here: http://www.bl.uk/turning-the-pages/
When you have had a look at them, create a table where you list the similarities and differences between these books and the books we are used to looking at today.
Work hard, keep in touch and be kind.
Ruth and Emily
