English - This week we will be looking at factual reports again and in particular studying our monarch Queen Elizabeth II. Today, please look at the reports that are added below (choose the correct one for your group) and then use the feature spotting checklist to try and find some key features. These include looking for the title, sub-headings, paragraphs, present tense verbs, conjunctions, adjectives, exclamation mark sentences and commas in a list. You can underline or circle the features you find on your reports or write them down in your English books. Please be aware that the document also contains comprehension questions which is tomorrow's work.


Maths- Please have a go at this shape lesson where you will be naming and describing different 3D shapes. Remember to use the correct mathematical vocabulary included vertices, edges and faces.

Below is a handwriting sheet and a word search all about contracted words. These are words that have been squeezed together to make 1 word. They contain an apostrophe where a letter or letters have been squeezed out!


Maths online game to try You will need to make families of four using either addition and subtraction or multiplication or division. For example with the number fact

4 x 5 = 20, you can also make 5 x 4 = 20, 20 ÷ 5 = 4 and 20 ÷ 4 = 5. Good luck!


History- Continue to look at the summer history project and complete any activities that you have not yet completed.
