Friday 5th March
Today is FLUENCY FRIDAY! It's all about reading fluently and with expression! We do this at school on Fridays and it's a fantastic chance to explore different texts and improve on our ability to read fluently. We're going to be using a text called 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs'.
(We're keeping on our pig theme but looking at a different text for the day- don't worry, we haven't forgotten Wilbur!)
This is an absolutely brilliant adaptation of the traditional story we know but tells it from the point of view of the wolf!
Watch the video which is a performance of the story. Look at the picture too which gives tips on how to read fluently and with expression. Then, have a go at reading the text and performing it yourself. Do plenty of practice and try using the techniques mentioned in the slides. The text is quite long so you may just pick a small section to have a go at reading aloud. You could video yourself doing this and send it to your teacher if you wanted to. We can't wait to hear and see your performances!
In English today, we will be continuing our new writing sequence... SUPERHEROES
This will all lead up to writing a a newspaper report.
Today we are looking at SPELLING! This is the next part of our writing sequence!
You will be having a go at using different ways of practicing the ten words below.
These are all words you should have come across in your vocabulary work last week.
You could check their meaning before you start if you're not sure.
The slides underneath will talk you through the activities. There are some sheets too which you can use for a couple of the activities.
Once you have finished, give yourself a little spelling test and see if you have managed to remember them all!
Words to practice:
For the next few weeks or so we will be focusing on 'Fractions'.
This morning we would like you to look at: Calculating fractions of a quantity
Watch the video first. You will need to keep pausing this to have a go at the tasks.
There are slides too (same as the video) if you need to look at this more slowly and carefully.
Then, complete the worksheet. Look at the questions on a screen and write your answers on paper. Remember, the later questions are normally problem solving and reasoning questions so give these your best shot. You may need a little bit of adult explanation for these.
SINGING - something a bit different
