Hi Everyone

Hope you are all okay.

This week I am going to be reading our class novel , Tiger, Tiger by Lynne Reid Banks. Look out for me on dojo ! There is also a weekly maths challenge. See how many questions you can answer over the week. Answers on Friday !


Here is your work for today.

First Session - Spelling and Grammar

Please take the next five words off the year 5/6 spelling list ( mischievous, muscle, necessary, neighbour and nuisance ) Learn what they mean and how to spell them. Write each word in a sentence and put it in your exercise book.

Today we are learning about Inverted Commas in grammar. Click below. Watch the videos and do exercise one. If you want to challenge yourself further, you can do exercise two and three also ! please put in your exercise book.



Second Session

This week our focus is Deadly Creatures

This week we will explore deadly creatures from around the world ( whilst sitting in the comfort of your own home! )


By the end of the week, not only will you know lots about some deadly creatures, you will have also created your own !

When following links online , parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.


Read the following extract from Deadly Factbook : Mammals ' by Steve Backshall :



Deadly Mammals

Write three sentences to describe each of the five animals you have read about in your exercise book. Try to include some of the descriptive words used in the text such as ' sublime sense of smell ' ( used to describe the polar bear )

Choose your favourite animal that you have read about today and create a fact file about it.

Third Session

Fluency - Prime Numbers and Square Numbers

We are going to leave fractions for the moment and hopefully I will be able to teach it to you when we return. We are going to move on to decimals which is our next summer term topic because I think you will find this easier to follow and understand.
