Maths - Today we will be finding approximate answers to calculations instead of actual answers! To do this we need to round the numbers to the nearest 10's number. First, we must look at the units digit and if it is 1, 2, 3 or 4 we round down to the nearest 10's number. If the units digit is 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 we round up to the nearest 10's number. If the number already ends in 0 then we do not need to round it at all!
For example, 53 will round to 50 because the units digit is 3 so we round down.
68 will round to 70 because the units digit is 8 so we round up.
If we now add 50 to 70 the approximate answer will be 120.
For example 24 + 29 rounds to 20 + 30 = 50
Look at the calculations on the sheet attached below. Round each of the numbers and then find the approximate answer.
Guided Reading - from Oxford Owl website
This week we would like you to choose your own book to read from Oxford Owl. The Oxford Owl books are colour coded so choose a book from the following colours.
Kingfisher Exclamation marks and Woodpecker Speech marks - White
Kingfisher Speech marks and Woodpecker Exclamation marks - Lime
Kingfisher Full stops and Woodpecker Capital letters - Red or Yellow

This week I would like to to write a review of the book you have read thinking about what you did/ didn't enjoy about the book and who you would recommend the book to.
As part of our recapping I would like to recap the 'un' prefix. Remember that prefixes come at the beginning of a word. Think about what 'un' means. There are a number of sentence activities to complete and also a word search.
The story on purple mash this week is all about Ned and the jungle animals and there are the usual quizzes set for you to complete. I have added a PDF below which supports the text and gives some comprehension questions and some work on question marks and full stops.
