EARLY BIRD TASKS
Let's get ourselves moving!
This week we are looking at the soft 'c' in words. This is when the 'c' makes a 's' sound. below are a list of your spellings using this rule. Today is look, over, write and check.
Today we will be SUMMARISING the story so far (Yipee! You get to use Mrs Inman's favourite phrase.. 'The general gist!')
Start by though by watching this clip of the story being read by Ed Petrie
Then I would like you to write a summary of the story so far.
Here are some language structures to help you
I have created a google form for you to write your answer, you don't have to use this, but if you do, I can mark it for you and help you get even better (or of course you can send me a picture to email@example.com)
Below is an example of when we have summarised previously:
The book 'Fireweed' is mainly about two children who are living in London in World War 2. The general gist is that the children have no family and therefore have to survive the wartime on their own, finding new survival skills and dodging the authorities who might take them to the children's homes. The authors most important ideas were that the children support each other and it is a tale of their hope that they can survive. The important events that happened were that Bill ran away from Wales, met Julie during the air-raids at Charring Cross underground and that they then worked as a team to find shelter, food and friends.
LO: I am learning to innovate part of a text. - A setting.
Today you are going to begin to innovate the text 'The Haunted House.' This means that you will be following the structure of the setting description outline in 'The Haunted House,' but will change key ideas, such as the place, the character and so on. You should have planned this already last week.
Below is the imitation text (The Haunted House) and the the innovation text which I have written for you to gain a better understanding of what you have to do. I have called mine 'The Creepy Shack.' Read through my innovation and make a line every time you spot a change. At the end, see if you can tell me how many changes I had in my paragraph.
Then you will have a go at writing your own paragraph. Remember, you are only innovating the paragraph given, not the whole text. Think about the structure of the original text and make sure you follow this. I try to do it sentence by sentence to help me break it down.

Start with TTRockstars and your three times tables booklet, then fluent in 5
Today we are going to practice our methods for DIVIDING a 3-digit number by a 1-digit number.
Last week we looked at 3 methods to divide;
Method 1 - use our place value counters (using Maths Bot)
Method 2 - Number bond diagrams
Method 3 - Long division
Today, I am going to show you my favourite for dividing 1 digit numbers - Short Division (sometimes known as the bus stop method).
Below is a video modelling short division, and then a video for all the methods together. Use the video to support you. Remember this is about practice - to help you gain fluency, but more importantly confidence.
Here is a picture of the 4 methods that are shown in the video.
Then complete these questions
I am so excited that we are starting this unit! During this topic we will be creating our own computer games, building on our programming skills from last year.
However, to start, as always, we are going to think about online safety.
Have a look through the following slides (in the slideshow below - you can pause, stop, chat and start it again!), and work your way through and then complete the following tasks in your purple book.
