Today we would like you to have a go at the arithmetic questions. Make sure you take your time to read the question carefully to check what it is asking you and choose the best method to work it out. Is there more than one way to work it out? Which is more efficient?
When you have finished, check your answers and if you got any wrong, work out your mistake. You might need an adult to help you.
Did you improve on last week?
Today we will be creating a setting description. It could be somewhere that you have been or somewhere more mysterious. Have you read a story recently that had a really intriguing setting? Books are a great way to get ideas!
To help you build the detail you need have a go at drawing your setting. Use the prompts on the power point for some ideas about what to include. Using a thesaurus is a great way to find other words to use www.thesaurus.com/. Remember not all synonyms will always make sense with what you're writing about so check you know what the word means.
When you have found lots of vocabulary, write a paragraph to describe your setting. Make sure you include correct punctuation!
Read it to an adult and see if they can build the image in their head! Can't wait to read them on the Purple Mash Blog!
We would like you to look at parallel ascenders. Parallel is a word we have seen in maths recently and are lines that never meet e.g ll. Have a look at the words on the sheet and then copy them. Think of other words which have parallel ascenders and write them out or use them in sentences.
Time to design your dream island!
If you could have your own island, what would you have on it? You need to think about the essentials, like shelter, food, water, transport etc and also some entertainment. Use your imagination!
We would like you to draw and label your island and then write an explanation of your choices.
You might want to have a logo or flag to create a brand for your island.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
