Don't forget, the book swap is this morning from 10am - midday!
Did any of you take part in the Artburst workshops yesterday? Keep your eyes peeled as there will hopefully be some more Artburst news coming your way very soon.
Here is your Thinking Thursday task.
English - Writing
How did you get on with your writing yesterday?
Today you are going to edit your writing. We can always find things to improve in a piece of writing, we just have to make sure we are reading it with a growth mindset and understand that we can always work to make things even better.
Here is a list of things to check through in your writing.
English - Reading
What did you think about the ending of the part of the chapter we read yesterday? What do you think Boris is going to do?
I was still staring when Mrs Blaizely beckoned. She wanted me up the steps and standing next to Ivan. I didn’t have a choice.
“Now,” she said. “Boris is going to tell us, in English, exactly what Ivan just said to us in Russian.”
She turned to me. “Well, go on.”
I tell you frankly, this was my big mistake. If I’d just done it, just gone ahead and told her straight off: “He said, “Greetings to all you lowly shivering worms”,” I could have saved myself a heap of trouble.
But I couldn’t do it. Look at it this way. There he was, on his first day in a new school. For all I knew, it could have been his very first week in a new country, his first day in his new house, almost his first words in his brand-new life (apart from arguing with his mother about whether or not to come through the school gates in the first place).
And he’d been called up to stand on stage with everyone staring. I thought he must have panicked, and said something silly as a sort of joke, not realising that in our civilized school where everyone’s supposed to have good manners and a positive attitude, it wasn’t going to work, and everyone was going to end up staring at him even more.
Lowly shivering worms? It’s pretty rude. I couldn’t let him get himself into everyone’s bad books so quickly.
So I just told them: “Ivan said, “Good morning, everyone”.”
I thought we’d get away then. I thought Mrs Blaizely would nod at us, and we’d troop off the stage. I’d tick him off (in Russian) and we’d start the day again.
But no such luck, because Ivan hadn’t finished. He stepped forward again.
“No doubt you’ll all be half-witted enough to welcome me amongst you,” he said (in Russian). “Your tiny, dim-bulb brains are simply not capable of seeing that I have secret powers which I intend to use to turn the whole pack of you into my slaves.”
Last week we looked at dividing by 10, now we’re looking at dividing by 10 and 100.
We’ve done this lots at school but it never harms to practise again.
Remember, when we divide by 10 each digit get 10 times small and moves one place to the right. When we divide by 100 each digit gets 100 times smaller and so they move two places to the right.
Here's the video we watched last week to remind you again.
CHALLENGE Question 5
CHILLI CHALLENGE Question 6
It's been great to see the progress some of you are making with your computing work on Purple Mash.
Have a look to see what today's tasks are. There are two this week as next week is half term.
Stay safe, take care and be kind.
