Welcome back to another day of home learning.
Here's your Talk it out Tuesday task.
English - Writing
How did you get on with thinking about the personality of your character yesterday?
What is it about them that is going to cause a problem? Did you remember to include parts of their personality that show how they might cause a problem?
Today, we're going to think about the appearance of our character. What do they look like? Think about features of their appearance that might link to them causing a problem, maybe they are very tall and so knock into the top of a door, perhaps they always have their shoe laces undone and this means they trip over sometimes.
Draw a picture of your character and label the features of their appearance that you think will be important for the story.
English - Reading

We can often be put in difficult situations where if we tell the truth it may hurt the feelings of someone or get somebody into trouble. However, if we lie we may get ourselves into trouble.These are tough decisions. Think about these questions, you could share your ideas with Purple Mash.
How did you find yesterday's addition? Today we are going to apply our addition knowledge with some different questions.
Which of these questions can you answer using the full method and which can you answer using your brain?
What is the best combination of scoops and toppings that I can get for £4?
It's your turn to create the question. Can you create 3 different addition calculations that total 569?
What did you think of all the old books yesterday? Today, we're going to learn a bit about illuminated letters.
Have another look at yesterday's website again: http://www.bl.uk/turning-the-pages/
Can you find any illuminated letters in any of the books? It is easier to see them in some of the books than others.
Keep working hard,
Ruth and Emily
