Activities for Thursday
To write a nonsense poem
What is a nonsense poem and what would you expect to see in that poem?
Remember it has to rhyme and should be funny or silly.
You are going to write your own poem remember to use the poems from Monday to help you. It can be pure nonsense like On the Ning Nang Nong, it could be about an adventure like Oh the Places You’ll Go or the Owl and the Pussy-cat or it could be about a creature like The Jabberwocky.
Today you are going to be trying to write your own nonsense poem.
Choose 10 words from the 3/4 word list and use them in a sentence. If you want to do a little extra you might want to do some rainbow writing, pyramid spelling, an acrostic poem or a nonsense story.
It's Thursday so that means it's time to DEAR - drop everything and read! You should, at some point during the day, drop whatever it is you're doing, get comfy and read for 20 minutes.
If you end up somewhere good send us a pic – we’d love to see what you’ve been reading!
In Maths today you will be continuing your work with calculations involving decimals. We will be starting with addition using decimal numbers – this may appear hard at first but just treat it as normal column addition and just remember to line up the decimal points! There is a PowerPoint you will be using for today and tomorrow. Today we are only focusing on ADDITION.
You may also want to review https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zy2mn39/articles/z3kmrwx for hints on the column method.
When completing your work there are 3 levels A which is the simplest, B which is a little more challenging and C which is hard. D, E and F are subtraction and to be used tomorrow – don’t complete this today!
If you finish all those and want a challenge there is an extension.
If you want to practise your times tables why not have a go at TTRS or one of these games: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables

We are going to focus on how we can use boundaries to keep IN respect and keep OUT disrespect.
A good example of disrespect is when a friend is shouting at you.
• Shouting + Shouting = Disrespect (If we respond to shouting with shouting, we will keep having disrespectful interactions with our friend)
• Shouting + Love = Respect (If we walk away from angry conversations, we are setting a boundary by protecting ourselves from being shouted at. Doing this helps our friend learn that we need them to speak to us respectfully)
• STOP - Ask your friend to stop shouting at you - If they stop shouting - great!
• EXPLAIN - say: “I don’t do shouting and would like to talk with you about this. I am going to walk away from this conversation now but I would love to talk to you when you are able to stop shouting.”
• WALK - walk away from your friend.
• RE-CONNECT - If your friend stops shouting and comes back to you - continue the conversation.
Can you create a poster to show how to keep respect in and disrespect out?
If you feel like you’re missing your friends – why not send them an email?
