MATHS

WALT: convert pence and pound

Over the next two weeks, we are going to be focusing on money.

Below is a knowledge organiser to look at with some facts about money you hopefully already know or can recap on before we start.

Today, we will start of looking at £ (pound) and p (pence).

You might find this lesson easy, but don't worry - we will be building up.

Think...

How many pence (p) are there in a pound (£)?

Watch the video below to look at pound and pence

ENGLISH

WARM UP

Turn these singular nouns into plurals.

1. fox

2. goat

3. hutch

4. berry

-> Now use each one in a sentence.

WALT: Use direct speech.

We use direct speech in texts to show when characters are speaking out loud.

To help the reader know when a character is speaking, there are some punctuation rules that we need to follow.

Take a look at the PowerPoint below to remind yourself of these rules.

Today, you are going to write a conversation between Senhor and the porcupines from the Great Kapok Tree.

What might Senhor respond to the porcupines?

What questions might he ask them?

Use this acronym to check your punctuation for speech:

S - speech mark (inverted commas)

C - CAPITAL LETTER

A - actual words spoken

P - punctuation

S - speech mark (inverted commas)

SPAG - SPELLING, PUNCTUATION AND GRAMMAR.

Spelling:

Complete the Spelling homework sheet on the suffixes -ation and -ous.

Punctuation and grammar - add commas to these sentences:

After a while the mouse ran out of the hole.

Before dinner I will do my homework.

In the morning I must remember to brush my teeth.

All of a sudden the monster jumped out.

-> Why do we need to use a comma here?
