Good Morning!


Maths - Today we will focus on multiplication as repeated addition. For example 3 x 5 is the same as 5 + 5 + 5.

Please watch the video and then try the activities on the PDF documents.

You can also try this 'karate cats maths' game. Just click on the multiplication and division questions when prompted and choose a bronze, silver or gold challenge!

English- In today's lesson we are going to be thinking about powerful words poets use when writing. Read the poem 'The day of the gulls' and highlight any words that you think are powerful and help create a picture in the reader's mind. Can you think of any other words that could describe how the bird moves either in the air or on the land? Using the poem as your example have a go at writing your own version of this poem. Attached is a planning sheet for you to use to help you think of your own ideas to use. Think about the adjectives, expanded noun phrases, powerful verbs and similes you could use. We have also included a sheet where you can write your poem in neat. We look forward to reading your poems. 

Guided Reading - Please see yesterday's information for books, questions and activities.


PE- Remember that it is important to stay fit and healthy so continue to do some sort of exercise whether that is going for a walk, doing a Joe Wicks workout or perhaps have a go at the  this weeks virtual games challenge.
