Look at this example.
It has 3 tens = 30
It has 2 ones = 2
It has 3 tenths = 0.3
30 + 2 + 0.3 = 32.3
Watch the interactive video from WhiteRose below and the youtube link and then complete the activities into your red maths book.
Rewrite these sentences so the adverbial is at the start - what punctuation will you need?
1. The sky was an ombre of reds and oranges this morning.
2. There was a squawk from a macaw high up in the trees.
3. Dark clouds bruised the sky in the afternoon.
WALT: Create questions for a character.
Today, we are going to come up with questions for Toki about life in his village in the rainforest as we are going to write him a letter at the end of the week.
Most questions begin with either 'who', 'what', 'where', 'when', 'why' or 'how' and ALWAYS end with a QUESTION MARK. A good question should encourage the person to explain their answer as fully as they can.
Look at these two questions:
How did Toki's feelings change?
What might Toki have been feeling during his adventure with the chameleon?
Which question gives you a more detailed answer? Why?
This grid can help you create open, challenging questions that will get a detailed answer.
Watch the video again and come up with 3 questions for Toki.
Use the above grid to help you.
Make sure you do 20 minutes of reading today.
Maybe try reading to an adult in your house or a sibling if you can.
If not, make sure you read aloud to yourself.
WALT: Use VIPER Skills (summarise)
-> Write down what you have read in 3 precise key points.
-> Draw a picture to show what you have read so far.
SPAG - SPELLING, PUNCTUATION AND GRAMMAR.
