Working together for success and happiness



Today is Fluency Friday!


Grab your favourite book and spend a good 20-30 minutes just enjoying it. If you can, spend some of this time reading to an adult. 

Don't forget to log this in your reading record and send it to your class teacher. 



Over the past week, the children have been gathering facts about the life of Sir David Attenborough in order to write a biography.


So far we have researched: His early life, his creation of nature documentaries, the actions he is taking to save planet Earth and how he has become recognised as a national treasure.


Today's task:
To conclude your research, we would like you to discover a range of little-known facts about Sir David Attenborough. Facts that most people are not aware of but that are actually true. At this point it is worth reminding you about 'fake news' and ensuring your facts come from reputable sources.


An example fact would be - 'Despite being in the Royal Navy and having travelled all over the world, David Attenborough has never driven a car and does not hold a licence to do so.'

You should record your facts and keep them safe ready for next week, when we will present all of our research in a short biography.



Over the next week or so in Maths, we will be focusing on revising some of the key skills covered this term. 

Today, our focus is LONG MULTIPLICATION. There are several choices to today's revision tasks based on how confident children are feeling about the concept. Watch the corresponding video below and then complete your choice of tasks. Move through the traffic light of tasks as your confidence grows or challenge yourself from the get go!
