Good morning,

It has been a lovely start to the week; I hope the sun keeps shining

Answers to the Mind-boggling mysteries are:

  1. Hide-a-key: In the first two places (Above the door and under the welcome mat), Dorothy hid decoy keys that didn’t fit in her lock.  She hid her real house key under the flowerpot. She hoped a burglar would find one of the decoy keys and give up when it didn’t’ work in the lock.
  2. Dropped Call:  Amy hung up her mobile phone because she met the person she was talking to and continued the conversation in person

I think Dorothy had a genius idea!

Here are the answers to your guided Reading from yesterday – Guided Reading answers

 

Let’s dive right into today’s learning.

 

Literacy:

I’m sure you judged your ideas realistically but fairly. 

We will be continuing on with the TalkforWriting booklet – The city of silence.  Today, can you please complete activity seven, eight and nine.  In these tasks you have a go at writing our own list poem (you can choose anywhere in space and time – so let your imagination go wild); analyse the poem “Cave of Curiosity” (write your answers in your exercise book); and extend on your initial ideas in your own list poem (by adding detail, character and description). Remember the effort you put in now will make it easier when it comes to writing.

Reading:

This week marks VE day in Europe. We are going to change things up a bit – we will still be exploring news of the time – using a different genre.  We are going to explore a radio broadcast script.  Read the script and answer the comprehension questions in your exercise book.

Mathematics:

 

Below you will find a selection of Maths related tasks for you to complete today.  Please complete Summer term – Week three, lesson three – adding and subtracting fractions.  Don’t forget if the denominators are not the same – you will need to find a common denominator.

 

Once you have finished that login to Mathletics.

Wednesday 6th May - Maths

 

Topic:

Cholera was a dreadful disease that changed the river Thames both politically and geographically.  Today I would like you to look at lesson 6 (remember to access using your USO logins).  Do not worry about printing any of the resource out – view them simply online and draw it free hand.  Instead of making an J2e to create an animation – just create a labelled diagram.
