We are continuing with converting units of measure today, but today we are looking at volume. The same method applies. There are 1000ml in 1 litre.
To convert millilitres into litres divide your number by 1000. On your place value grid move your digits 3 places to the right, don't forget your decimal point and any placeholders you might need.
To convert litres to millilitres multiply your number by 1000. On your place value grid move your digits 3 places to the left, don't forget your decimal point and any placeholders you might need.

Watch the video below to see the calculations in action, you can stop watching at 2 minutes 50 seconds because you don't need to worry about centilitres today. Please show your calculations with a place value grid, not column method!
Today I would like you to write a story using the Cat's Eyes image as a starting point. There is a story opener below, if you would prefer to write your own story opener you can

Use your writing mat (from your packs) to support you when thinking about sentence structure, grammar and punctuation.

read back through your writing to check carefully that it makes sense to the reader
If you are able to, play some of the games above to practise your -cious and -tious words.
If you cannot play online, your words to practise are below. Use your Home Learning Journal to practise the spellings, write the words, use the words in a sentence or even create your own spelling games. You might need to look up the meaning of some words as the week goes on.
Read a chapter of your book. Can you find any -cious or -tious words?
Make and test some paper planes! Earlier in the year we studied forces, including air resistance and gravity.
Visit https://www.foldnfly.com for some paper plane design ideas.
Choose a design and pick one thing to change, there are some examples below:
Does the variable that you have changed make a difference to how far or how fast your plane travels?
How could you measure this?
What will you keep the same to ensure that your test is fair?
Recording: In your journals list the variables that stayed the same and the variables you changed, explain how you compared your planes fairly. Use full sentences and remember your perfect presentation.
