Happy New Year Everyone!
It's such a shame that we can't all be together at the moment, but we can keep connected through the webpage and firstname.lastname@example.org
email account. It would be great if you could send in photos of the things you have been doing to keep learning! Let me know if you're happy for me to put them on the webpage.
Spend a bit of time looking through your pack this week and think about how the activities can help you - especially with those targets we set ourselves of improving our spelling, handwriting and tables. I can't wait to see the progress you make! Remember, you've done so well at improving your handwriting and tables - keep practising for those pen licences and 25/25 tables scores!
Wednesday 6th January
Today we will be learning to multiply by 10.
1) Begin by warming up with this Supermovers routine. You were really good at it in class!
2) Watch the video below about x 10. Remember that you may need to stop it and listen to parts of it more than once because it may go a bit fast for you in places!
3) Answer question 1-7 in the Multiplication and Division workbook that we have put in your learning resources pack. If you haven't got it just yet, catch-up on the questions tomorrow. Remember to write the date and draw traffic lights using a ruler!
4) If you have time, log in to Mathshed to practise your mental maths.
Read for at least 15 minutes. Remember that Mrs Payne would like some book reviews (written in your own words) for the website. I will ask you to write some soon so keep reading!
Adding the suffix -ly
We can add the suffix -ly to make an adverb.
We swap a y for an i before adding -ly.
When a word ends with -ic, we add -ally instead of -ly.
This week's words will help you to include fronted adverbials in your writing!
Watch this Espresso clip to remind yourself what a fronted adverbial is. Try the quiz that goes with it. (You will need to use the login in your BHBOAE).
Now, find out what these words mean
Use them to write sentences with fronted adverbials. Remember to use your best handwriting!

Open your RWI book at page 15 (Unit 4).

Open your lovely, new purple English book at page 4.
Do questions 1-6 today.

I've set you some x10 questions and a quiz on Mathshed. I'll have a look at your scores next week.
Next week, we will continue our work on rivers and will link it to our writing so that we create a leaflet about the journey of a river.
Today (and as your weekend learning), can you create me something that will help us all to learn about the rivers near us? It would be great if you could find-out about The Tone (if you haven't already) or about any rivers that might be in the Blackdowns, Mendips, Brendons or Quantocks. You could focus on the rivers in your House - the hills I mean, not your home !
You could say the places they start, flow through and end; you could write about the wildlife in and near them or you could give us some fascinating facts. I don't mind how you present this. You could make a normal poster, a lift-the-flap poster, a leaflet, a book, a mindmap - whatever you like! You choose what suits you best. Please email me what you've done and let me know if you'd like it to go on the web.
Just a warning though...I will only be able to put your work on the website if it has photos you have taken and everything is written in your own words - you mustn't copy any sentences exactly - or if you put the web address or book that you copied the information from. It's because of copyright. You know how I'm always going on about that!
1) Each week, try to send me at least one email letting me know how you are and how you've got on with the activities. Thanks to all of you who have already been in touch. It's good to know you're safe, well and finding the resource packs useful.
2) Remember our last day together when we talked about how important it is to know that someone is thinking about us and cares about us? Is there anyone in our class you can send a lovely message to or have a quick chat with? (Make sure your parents are with you to help with any calls.)
3) Please try to get some fresh air and do some relaxing things this weekend. Perhaps play a boardgame, sing a song, draw a picture, do some yoga, do some gardening, cook something... I'll know you'll have some great ideas.
Take care fabulous people!
