Spelling task for you this morning, to practice and understand the different suffixes we are faced with in our spellings this week. Can you sort all the words into the right columns, try it without looking and then see how many you missed by checking your spellings. 


Your task today is to read another instalment from the book of Hope we have shared over the past weeks. The link is below. We would like you to read 'Best Felling Ever' on page 303 and have a go at answering the questions below.


1. Who is the narrator of the story? (1 mark)

2. How do we know the little girl didn't like her birthday present? Use evidence in the text? (2 marks)

3. Why do you think she enjoyed her birthday present in the end? (2 marks)

4. Why did she refer to her bicycle as a 'My steed' halfway down page 305? (2 marks)


In English today we are going to have a look at writing in first person. You will notice all the diaries we have looked at are written like this as they are always written by the person about what they are experiencing. When we write our diary entries we will need to be experts in first person writing and writing from our point of view.


There are three ways of writing: first person (I, we), second person (you) and third person (they, she, he). We spend most of our time writing in either first or third person. It can be tricky swapping between the two. Have a look on the BBC bitesize website link below for more of an explanation and an activity and then have a go at the worksheet below that.


Today's lesson is on multiplying fractions by fractions. This is one of our favourite calculations as the why it works is really complicated but the how we do it is really easy. This link to the BBC bitesize website shows  a video that explains the why we multiply the denominator by the denominator and the numerator by the numerator. So...

1/4 x 1/3 would be 1/12 as 1 x 1 = 1 (the numerator) and 3 x 4 = 12 (the denominator).


These two activities will help you practice the skill. 



Today we are going to look at colours within light. 

We see light as white, the light from light sources (the sun, light bulbs, etc) are all emitting white light. But light is in fact all the colours all together. you can see this when light slows down. Can you think of some examples where light is slowed down and shows a full spectrum of colours? 


The activity we are going to do to investigate this fact is attached below. Use the template (or make your own) to colour in quarters of a circle different colours. Once coloured in pop two bits of string through two holes just off the centre (you might need an adult to help with this) then you can spin the string. When the disks spins quickly to unravel it should show a change in colour.
