SPEEDY TABLES

1. Write out your 9x times tables in order.

Maybe ask someone to test you to see how many you can remember.

2. Have a go at completing the number sentences for these bar models.

FLUENCY

This week, we will be looking at different types of graphs.

Today, we are looking at pictographs

Let's look at this graph.

Each of the fruit represent TWO children.

When reading a pictograph, write the amounts for each fruit.

Banana = 10

Grapes = 2

Apples = 8

Pears = 6

This makes it easier to answer questions.

1. What is the most popular fruit?

2. How many children chose apples as their favourite fruit?

3. How many MORE children prefer bananas than pears?

Let's look at this question.

Remember to count up each one first.

Count how many red, blue, green, yellow and pink. This will help you will the questions.

1. How many children's favourite colour is pink?

2. How many MORE children prefer yellow rather than pink?

3. How many children were asked what their favourite colour was?

4. How many children chose blue and green as their favourite colour?

1. Which is the most popular pet?

2. How many children have a rabbit?

3. How many fewer dogs than cats are there?

4. How many pets are there in the class altogether?

5. How many more cats are there than hamsters?

This one is a little more tricky so think carefully...

1. How many points does Oak have?

2. How many house points are there ALTOGETHER?

3. How many more points does the Sycamore team have than the Ash team?

4. How many points do Beech and Oak teams have altogether?

5. How many more points do Ash need to be equal to Oak?

WARM UP

Using Direct Speech

Inverted commas are important in speech as they show the words that a character is saying. We use speech marks before the first word that is spoken and after the punctuation at the last word that is spoken. A reporting clause (which tells us who is speaking and in the manner they are speaking) can come before or after the spoken words but we do not put speech marks around it.

For example:

"Have you seen Mr Wilkinson's hair?" laughed Leo.

Thor sighed, "Yes, I saw it weeks ago."

Creative Writing Challenge

Day 2 of the creative writing challenges! Similarly to yesterday, you are going to be writing from the point of view of an animal. What adventure might they go on? Do they overcome their fear?

Things to include in your writing:

- fronted adverbials for when and where

- subordinate clauses for extra information

- expanded noun phrases for detail description

- direct speech (use SCAPS to help!)
