Expect the Best


Monday 22nd June 2020

Maths - This week we are going to continue our exploration of multiplication and division. Today we are going to concentrate on the 10 times table. You should be really good at this! Watch the video and then complete the PDF document below.    

English-  Today we are going to recap noun phrases and then think about how to extend them using powerful verbs and adjectives. Have a look at the swan picture and write down adjectives and phrases that you could use to describe the swan. Then in more detail look at each part of the swan and write down powerful expanded noun phrases to describe the swan in more detail. Then using the poem 'The swan' highlight nouns and adjectives using different colours. If you have some more time cut out the pictures of the different birds and write a few phrases to describe each of them. E.g  The glossy blackbird has a sharp yellow beak and black piercing eyes. 

*Try to use some new, exciting adjectives that you have not used before in your writing.
