How was your weekend? What did you get up to? Why not share your weekend adventures with us on Purple Mash, we'd love to hear what you did.
Ruth has just read a book called The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy, it was full of lots of thought provoking pictures and quotes which we are going to use for our Weekly Wellbeing tasks this week. Have a look at the picture and think about the question.
English - Writing
Last week, we thought about the two main characters we are going to have in our stories. This week we are going to think about the setting of our story. Perhaps you have decided your story is going to take place in a school, maybe it's in a jungle or it might be in someone's house.
Your task today is to draw a detailed picture of the setting for your story. Remember to include any bit that you think might be useful to mention when you write your story.
English - Reading
How are you finding the story? It's been great to see some of your interactions with the story so far.
In Chapter 11 we follow Fred the Fearless on his adventure to the north. We hear about where he stays and how Spittleworth and Flapoon cope along the way.
Imagine you are a guest in the finest inn of Kurdsburg, how do you feel about being thrown out onto the street to make way for King Fred?
Last week, we looked at addition, this week we are moving onto subtraction.
When we are developing quick and accurate ways to mentally solve subtraction problems it is important to feel confident with our knowledge of jigsaw numbers to 100.
Today's questions are all about developing that efficiency with jigsaw numbers.
1. Rearrange the digits 8, 3, 0, 0, 2, 6, 1 into a jigsaw number addition.
2. ?? + 7 = 100
3. Fill in the missing digits: 100 = _5 + 4_
4. Pom thinks that 100 - 35 must be 75 because 100 - 70 = 30 and 10 - 5 = 5. Can you persuade him that he is wrong?
5. Complete 100 - ?? = ?? so that the sum of the digits in all the numbers is less than 20. (Remember: Sum means when you add them all together, so the sum of the digits in 34 and 28 is 17 because 3+4+2+8 = 17.)
6. What is the greatest number of odd digits you can use to complete 100 - ?? = ? ?
Last week, we looked at illuminated letters. This week we are going to make our own!
Sometimes, illuminated letters have a picture or a pattern than links to words beginning with that letter. Have a look at the letters below to see what you can see beginning with each letter.
Your topic task over the next two afternoons is to create an alphabet of illuminated letters.
If you want to challenge yourself, you could try and include things from nature that beginning with the letter.
Don't forget to share your illuminated letters with us on Purple Mash, we'd love to see them and some might even make it to Twitter!
Stay safe, work hard and be kind.
Ruth and Emily
