Good Morning everyone - and welcome to another day of home learning.
A big well done to the 15 members of Callisto who signed in on the register yesterday - remember you can use the register or the class email to ask any questions or share and difficulties you may be having.
Thank-you to Manerva, Eithan and Alexander for saying hello - it is lovely to hear from you as I am missing seeing you all each day. Another thank-you to Weronika who told me all about her holiday - it sounds like you had a lot of fun - although a 10km bike ride sounds like hard work.
Some children asked about what I did in the Easter holiday and just like you my Easter holiday was very busy. I did lots of gardening, cleaning and decorating. I also ate far too much chocolate so I made sure I did the Joe Wicks workout and took a 5km walk each day.
Have a great day - and don't forget send us some photos so we can see what you have been up to. As well as this if you have any great ideas for activities we can all try why not drop me a line on the register or by email.
Start your day with 30 minutes of physical activity - use the link below to take part in a daily workout with Joe Wicks - which activity to you like best? Let me know on the register.
Joe set a homework task last Friday to create a t-shirt design for his daily PE sessions - why not give it a go!
Take 10 minutes at the beginning of your session to play TT Rockstars or practice your multiplication facts in your times table book.
Today we are continuing our learning on converting measures. We are still focusing on converting units of lengths but today we are converting between cm and m and vice versa. take a look through the Let's Learn slides below to see how our friends have done it - remember to convert between units of measure we use our knowledge of multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.
Try the Guided Practice questions in your Home Learning Journal and complete worksheet 2 on page 101 and 102 in your workbook. When you have finished you can ask an adult to check your answers using the Math No Problem Hub.
'The Greatest Library'
Today I would like you to focus on developing your sentences structure in preparation for writing your own stories tomorrow.
These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?
Can you use a semi-colon to mark the boundary between independent clauses?

Books went around the big library like flying books.
There was piles of books on the floor like towers.
E.g. It was exciting; the books came alive.
This was the most extraordinary library;
Lucy heard a loud bang;

Topic - Art
Following on from our reading today I would like you to be creative and make your own land art sculpture.
Spend some time exploring your garden or the park on your daily walk and gather some interesting, colourful and unusual natural objects such as leaves, stones, twigs and feathers. If you cannot get outside you could try the activity using found objects from around your home. Find some space and create your own sculpture using the objects you have found.
The images below may give you some ideas -
I would love to see what you create so remember to ask an adult to take a picture and send your land art to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them to our photo book.
