Expect the Best


Monday 15th June 2020

Good Morning! I hope you all had a good weekend.


Maths - This week we will still be looking at multiplication and division. We have used video links to bbc bitesize to support your learning and then provided some practice sheets as PDF's.    - counting in 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's. Have a look at this video first before trying the activities.

English-  Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at poetry unit based on birds and the journeys they take. Today we would like you to watch these videos and think about what it would be like to be a bird flying over different places. Think about places that you could visit. What might you see, hear, taste and feel? Remember that a bird's eye view is from above. Think of some synonyms for flying and then write a description of what you could see. When writing your description think about the other senses and try and include lots of adjectives, expanded noun phrases and a simile.
