Expect the Best

Good Morning!


Maths - Today you are going to apply your knowledge of multiplication and division to solve word problems. Read the problem carefully, understand what it needs you to do, write down the hidden calculation, solve it, write the answer and then check the answer. Work through them slowly and carefully, and solve them using the methods you have been using this week. 

Some of the word problems need you to complete 2 calculations, and some will need either multiplication or division so you will need to work hard.

If you want to, you can even try the reasoning questions which are a mixture of multiplication, division and fraction questions!

English - Today we would like you think about how you can edit and improve simple sentences to make them more exciting for the reader. Have a look at the PowerPoint attached and look at the examples of how you can improve simple sentences by adding adjectives, expanded noun phrases, similes and conjunctions. Attached are some sheets for you to improve. As a challenge perhaps you could even try and write your own simple sentences and then edit them to make them even better. 
Guided Reading- Make sure all activities have been completed for this week. Look back at Monday's guided reading notes to check. 
DT- Have a look at the DT project for the summer term and have a go at the floating and sinking activity. Think carefully about what material would be to make a boat that floats.
