Arithmetic pg 13 and 14
This is a bit of revision of short multiplication - remember multiply each digit and then write neat exchange figures that you remember to add in!
Punctuation - pg 14.
More on apostrophes for possession - remember whatever the noun is BEFORE the apostrophe that is the noun which owns the object. eg 'the child's pencil' - one child has a pencil BUT 'the children's pencils' - lots of children have pencils and
'the horse's field' - one horse in one field BUT' the horses' field' - lots of horses in the field.

This week we focus on modal verbs that we did LOTS on in Year 5. These are verbs that tell you how likely it is that something might happen - we say that they tell us 'degrees of possibility'. eg It COULD snow. It MIGHT snow. It SHOULD snow.
