SPEEDY TABLES

This week we will focus on the 7x tables so make sure you're practising everyday.

Write these questions out and solve each one.

1 x 7 =

2 x 7 =

3 x 7 =

4 x 7 =

5 x 7 =

6 x 7 =

7 x 7 =  (Remember this is a square number)

8 x 7  = (Clue. This is Miss Rowlands' favourite times table)

9 x 7 =

10 x 7 =

11 x 7 =

12 x 7 =

After chatting to lots of you on the phone last week, you said you found division tricky so this week, we will spend a whole week focusing on division. Division can be a tricky concept so please don't worry or panic if you are finding this difficult.

FLUENCY

Complete these questions into your book. Remember one digit in each box .

Don't worry if this is tricky - we'll do this all week so you'll get there.

If you get stuck, watch the video again to see if it can help you to solve your wobbles.

WARM UP

Read through this passage. Can you identify a synonym for each word in bold?

WALT: Write show sentences

This week, we are going to write our scene description. To help build a detailed picture with words we will use the 5 senses along with expanded noun phrases and adverbials.

Last week, you should have made a list of the things our young Viking might hear, see, smell, taste and touch. If not, take a few minutes now to write down a couple items for each of the senses.

We are going to use that list to help build sentences for this description. Today, we are going to focus on creating sentences using noun phrases and the senses. The aim is to explain how or what the character may be doing or feeling in a couple of sentences rather than in one simple sentence.

For example:

Simple sentence: The young Viking was surprised to see a graveyard of long forgotten ships.

Show sentences: The young Viking let out a gasp. His eyes widened as he took in the valley before him. Silvery mist swirled thickly between the cliffs and the fine droplets caught in his hair. The Viking's jaw dropped as the mist thinned in places to reveal its hidden secret. A graveyard of long forgotten ships.

The show sentences use a mixture of short simple sentences and longer compound sentences to build the spooky narrative. Instead of just saying the Viking is surprised and moving on, the show sentences give detail to the reaction of the Viking. We know he is surprised because he has gasped, widened his eyes and his mouth is open. When writing your show sentences, think about how you might show each emotion. Perhaps practise the movement. What do you do when you are angry? Or sad? Or excited?

Choose two things to describe in the picture and have a go at writing some show sentences. Perhaps the droplets of mist make him shiver and wrap his cloak tightly around him or the smell of the salty sea makes him sneeze.
