Reading - Monday 29th November

Full Stops - Today you will be reading an extract from 'The Demon Headmaster' by Gillian Cross. 

'The Demon Headmaster' is the first in a series of seven books by the award-winning children's author Gillian Cross. This book focuses on Dinah Glass and her foster brothers, Lloyd and Harvey, as they try to put a stop to the Headmaster's evil plot to take over the country and subject it to a merciless system of order and discipline. In this extract, Dinah attends her new school for the first time. She is surprised by the other pupils' strange behaviour, which she later learns is a symptom of the Headmaster's sinister influence over the school. 

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

Question Marks - Today you will be reading a news article called 'BBC Women's Footballer of the Year'. 

In 2015, the BBC World Service introduced the Women's Footballer of the Year award. Five players were short-listed for the award and it was voted for by football fans from all over the world. The winner was 20-year-old Asisat Oshoala who plays for Nigeria and Liverpool Ladies, and her victory was announced at the end of May, just before the start of the 2015 Women's World Cup in early June.

Exclamation Marks - Today you will be reading 'Pompeii' by Catherine Heygate. 

In the first century AD, Pompeii was a thriving Roman city. However, the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD destroyed the city, killing its inhabitants and burying the site under several metres of volcanic ash. In the mid-eighteenth century, archaeologists began excavating Pompeii and found that much of the city had been extraordinarily well preserved by the layers of ash covering it. As a result, Pompeii is now one of the most importance sources of information about life in the Roman Empire.

Commas - Today you will be reading 'Poems About Seasons' by Adrian Henri and John Updike.

Adrian Henri was a British poet and painter. One of the influential Liverpool Poets of the 1960s, he is credited with helping to increase the popularity of poetry among young people by writing poems about popular culture. Henri's contemporary, the American writer John Updike, is best known for his novels, but he also published several poetry collections. Like Henri, Updike is best known for depicting familiar topics in his poems. This contrasting pair of poems gives you the opportunity to compare the different forms of poetry, and to explore the use of vivid imagery to describe the world around you.

English - Monday 29th November

Today you will be working on simple, compound, and complex sentences.

Read the excerpt from 'All about... Michael Morpurgo'. Analyse the different sentences. Find some simple sentences (one clause), some compound sentences (two or more equal clauses joined by 'and', 'or' or 'but') and some complex sentences (main clause with one or more subordinate clauses). Look at the conjunctions that have been used to join these clauses too: both co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions. Also, look at how headings and subheadings have been used. 

Here is a set of complex sentences. Your task is to split each sentence into the main clause and the subordinate clause. Then take the subordinate clause and add it to another main clause that you create. 

Arithmetic - Monday 29th November

Group 1 - Today you will be counting on and back in 5s.

Find somebody at home to do this activity with. Sit facing each other (or in a small circle if you can find more players). Find an object that can be passed between you - count on from 0 in 5s while you pass the object. When you get to 150, stop and then count back in 5s. Here is a 1-100 square that you can use to help you if you want. 

Group 2 - Today you will be rounding 3-digit numbers to the nearest 10 and 100.

Here is a Rounding Game. Mix up all of the cards and then organise them into their number families. Each family has a 3-digit number, its nearest 10 and its nearest 100. For instance, in the family of 324 are 320 (nearest 10) and 300 (nearest 100). Once all the families have been found, collect, and shuffle the cards then play again. 

Group 3 - Today you will be multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100.

Here is a 10s, 1s, 0.1s and 0.01s place value grid. Ask somebody at home to call out a number, e.g. 5.6. Your task is to use digit cards to show the number on the grid. Then multiply the number by 10. Then divide by 100. Repeat with other numbers, e.g. 0.8, 3.06. 

Group 4 - Today you will be saying how much is needed to make the next metre.

Play 'Ping, Pong' with somebody at home. Ask them to say a length, e.g. 3.74m. You need to say how much is needed in metres to make the next metre, i.e. 0.26m. Record the pairs that you create.
