Don't forget we have got our hour-long session on Zoom today, between 12 and 1pm. We will have a chat about War Horse, our maths and what we thought about the different deities in the Hindu religion.
We will use the same password and meeting ID as usual.
Today we are reading chapter 5 in our books, pages 35 - 45.
Please continue to practise your spellings for this week, either by writing them out on a piece of paper, by logging in to Spelling Shed or unscrambling the words below.
Today we are looking at dividing decimals by integers; we were multiplying yesterday and using our short multiplication method, remembering the decimal point and place value of our digits. Today we are using our short division method to divide decimals.We have done this before particularly when working with money. The video, here, shows lots of different ways and why the method works but we know if we use our short division well we will get the right answer.
Top Tip: think about what units you are working with and how many digits after the decimal point you need - money always needs tenths and hundredths - £2.50.
Today we are going to be concentrating on editing our persuasive letter; you will have worked really hard yesterday to get your letter written in one go, so today we need to have a good look at editing it.
Your letter should include: an address, Dear ....., an introduction (to hook me in), at least 2 paragraphs containing explanation and detail (PEPS) and a conclusion. Make sure you have completed these, whilst also thinking about the sentence types you can add in, the conjunctions you have used and your spellings and punctuation as well.
Today we are going to break our editing into 4 sections each taking 10 to 15 minutes each. You might like the help of a grown up or older sibling to read it with you once or twice.
Some geography for today, we are looking at countries and places near to us and how they are different or similar to our country and community over the next half term. We are going to start today by getting familiar with the places and features across Europe.
Follow the link here to find a video that will recap the continent names and some countries in Europe. Pay attention there is a little quiz at the end to test your recapped/new knowledges.
Here is the link for the web site called Draw with Rob, a bit of cartoon work as an extra activity for you to do if you want.
Joe Wicks is doing his thing once again this morning. We will be joining in in school - feel free to go to The Body Coach Youtube Channel to join in as well. You might choose to do this when you feel like you need some exercise or a bit of a wriggle!
