Monday 12th October

Maths

Addition of 3-digit number and a 1-digit number, involving carring of tens. We have started to practice this in class so your child should understand it, or a little atleast. Below is a Powerpoint which will guide them through the activities attached.

Grammar

Watch the clip on how to use bullet points.

See if you can find some examples in your home where bullet points have been used.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/z2yydxs

Watch the clip on George's Marvellous Medicine chapter 7. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZvB2pfWYa4 Use your knowledge of bullet points to list all the things that happen to Grandma once she has had the medicine.

Start with these:

  • Her body started to whoosh into the air.
  • Up she went like a jack-in-the-box.

 

Continue the list. You can write the list in pencil on paper or could type it and print it, or email to me at jenny.smith@hawthorn-tree.lincs.sch.uk

Please make sure you are reading as often as you can. You can read texts from home and online. You could read recipes and follow them. You can read comics and magazines. It all counts. Sharing a book is really important. You could show your parents how we echo read - when I read it, then you read it or when I read it and miss out a word and you have to follow and read in the right word. 

 

Have fun and stay safe.
