Reading - Monday 8th November

Full Stops - Today you will be working on 'Let's Get Growing!' by Chris Collins and Lia Leendartz.

This book is published by The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). The RHS encourages people to 'grow your own' because it believes in knowing where your food comes from, being self-sufficient and eating healthily. This book tries to encourage you to get out into the garden by showing you how much fun gardening can be. 

Read the text and answer questions 1, 2 and 3. 

Question Marks - Today you will be working on 'Harry Drinkwater's Diary' by Harry Drinkwater. 

Harry Drinkwater served as a front-line soldier throughout World War One. He was initially rejected by the army for being too short but managed to join the Birmingham Pals Battalion. He later became an officer and was awarded the Military Cross. Even though soldiers weren't allowed to keep diaries, he kept one for the duration of the war, storing it in his tunic pocket. He fought in the Somme and Passchendaele, witnessing many of his friends being killed, but miraculously managed to survive the war himself. He died in 1978.

Exclamation Marks - Today you will be working on 'The Great Fire of London' by George Szirtes. 

The Great Fire of London started just after midnight on 2nd September 1666 in Thomas Farynor's bakery on Pudding Lane. Because of overcrowding and the use of flammable building materials, such as wood and straw, the fire spread throughout much of the City of London. By the time it was extinguished on 5th September, the fire had destroyed thousands of buildings and made an estimated 100,000 people homeless. As you read the poem, think about the various poetic techniques Szirtes uses to create a vivid image of the fire. 

Read the text and answer questions 1, 2, 3 and 4. 

Commas - Today you will be working on 'Cider with Rosie' by Laurie Lee.

Laurie Lee is best known for his autobiographical novel 'Cider with Rosie', first published in 1959. The novel began just before the end of World War 1 and follows Lee's experiences growing up in the small Gloucestershire village of Slad. In some respects, the novel presents country life as idyllic, but is also explores the hardships of life at that time. By the end of the novel, Slad is beginning to be affected by changes brought about by the post-war years, such as the introduction of the motor car, and people leaving to work in larger towns and cities.

English - Monday 8th November

Our new unit of work is called 'Biographies and Autobiographies'. We are going to be using biographies of Roald Dahl and Michael Morpurgo (both books and online) and their autobiographical writing to find out what good examples look like. We will be using the texts to learn about dialogue, noun phrases and complex sentences. The texts we will use are: 'Boy' and 'Going Solo' by Roald Dahl and 'Singing for Mrs Pettigrew' and 'Homecoming' by Michael Morpurgo. At the end of the unit, we will be writing our own autobiographies. 

Your task today is to do the front cover to go into your English book. This will be a poster that shows anything you know about biographies and autobiographies and information and illustrations about Roald Dahl and Michael Morpurgo. 

Arithmetic - Monday 8th November

Group 1 - Today you will be working on place value in 3-digit numbers.

Here is a Place Value Grid. Ask somebody at home to say a 3-digit number like 'four hundred and thirty-two' and you write it into the Place Value Grid. Check that you have written the correct digit in each column and then repeat for other 3-digit numbers. 

Group 2 - Today you will be working on place value in 4-digit numbers.

Here is a Place Value Grid. Ask somebody at home to say a 4-digit number like 'two thousand three hundred and thirty-two' and you write it into the Place Value Grid. Check that you have written the correct digits in each column and then repeat for other 4-digit numbers.

Group 3 - Today you will be 'zapping' digits in a 4-digit number. 

Ask somebody at home to choose and write down a 4-digit number. You are then going to play a game against them. You go first and roll the dice. If that digit is in the 4-digit number, you say what to subtract to 'zap' it. If correct you score that number of points. Write down the new number. Your partner then has a go. Carry on until all digits are zapped. Repeat with a new 4-digit number. 

Group 4 - Today you will be counting on and back in 25s from 4-digit numbers. 

Practise counting in steps of 25 from 1000 to at least 1500. Write your sequence down onto a piece of paper. Repeat but this time counting on from 1003, and back, then on from 1007.

Your task today is to do the front cover to go into your English book. This will be a poster that shows anything you know about biographies and autobiographies and information and illustrations about Roald Dahl and Michael Morpurgo. 

Arithmetic - Tuesday 9th November

Group 1 - Today you will be adding using place value. 

Make 45 using the place value cards, then 145. What have you done. Make 245. Which card have you changed? Ask somebody at home to tell you different 3-digit numbers to show. Now make the total of 100 + 70 + 3 using place value cards. Repeat with 400 + 50 + 6. Record these calculations and answers on a piece of paper. 

Group 2 - Today you will be comparing pairs of 4-digit numbers. 

Play the 'Nasty Game' with somebody at home. You both shuffle your cards and place them in a pile face down. You take it in turns to take a card and place it either in your row or on your opponent's row on the game board. You are aiming to make the larger number. When you have both placed all four digits, compare the two 4-digit numbers. Which number is bigger? How do you know? Repeat, this time aiming to make the smaller number. 

Group 3 - Today you will be counting on and back in 10s, 100s and 1000s from a 4-digit number.

You will need somebody at home to play against. Start with the number 2345. The first player rolls a dice and chooses to add that many 1s, 10s, 100s or 1000s, aiming to get as close to 10,000 but not going over. If you go over, you lose! The second player does the same. Keep going until both players 'stick' before rolling the dice. Who is closest to 10,000? Repeat with a starting number of 6789 and subtracting 1s, 10s, 100s or 1000s to 0. 

Group 4 - Today you will be multiplying by multiples of 10 (e.g. 7 x 80). 

You will need somebody at home to play against. One person shuffles a set of 2-9 cards and the other person shuffles a set of 20 to 90 cards. Both place piles face down. On the count of three you both turn over your top card. The first to multiply the numbers together wins the pair of cards. Repeat until all cards have gone. Count who has won the most cards. Repeat.

Make 456 using place value cards. Subtract 6. What did you do? What is left? Write the calculation: 456 - 6 = . Now make 456 again. Subtract 50. What did you do? What is left? Record 456 - 50 = . Make 456 again and, this time, subtract 400. Write the subtraction. Repeat for 456 - 56, 456 - 406 and 456 - 450. 

Group 2 - Today you will be counting on and back in 1s from any 4-digit number.

Start by thinking of an action that you can do every time you say a multiple of 10. You could jump, wave hands, bow etc. Count in 1s from 3980. When you get to 4010, count backwards in 1s. Repeat with other 4-digit numbers. Write some of your sequences down on a piece of paper. 

Group 3 - Today you will be working on times tables.

Work with somebody at home. Face each other, shake your hands and both say 'flippy, floppy fingers', then each show a number of fingers. The first to multiply the two numbers together and say the answer earns a point. After 5 minutes, the winner is the person with the most points. Did anyone score more than 30 points?
