Activities for Wednesday
LO: Summarise and order events
Watch the link for ‘Until I Met Dudley’
What are your views of the book? What do you like/dislike? Why? What appeals to reader?
Order an explanation of one of the processes.
Cut and stick/write them out/number order – up to you
Once you have completed this – read through it to ensure it flows.
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 time for another challenge! The aim is to read the text in 60 seconds! You should then have 5 minutes to answer the questions that come with it. There are 4 different ones available! We would suggest you do at least 2 today.
Today in maths we will be continuing to look at money calculations though we are moving onto word problems. When it comes to word problems read the questions very carefully, I always like to draw the problem so I can really visualise it and work out if I’m being asked to add or subtract. When working out remember to line up your decimals and the answers are there for you to check.
Once you have completed your task there is an extension for you to have a go at. It is a problem for you to solve. You can find the problem below and the answer at: https://nrich.maths.org/5949
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

Think about the sounds that were created at the beginning of the clip.
Using equipment around the house/classroom, create the sound. Try to think of a different way to make the sound – for example, how else could you match the sound of a door opening and closing?
Glass bottles with different amounts of water. Watch this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3v5Bdd398LY
Can you recreate this at home with a grown up’s help?
How do you think we hear sound?
Imagine you are a civil engineer. Design a weight-bearing bridge using dry spaghetti. Think about what materials you could use to join the spaghetti together and give your bridge support to hold up to a kilogram of weight. Build and test your design.
If you feel like you’re missing your friends – why not send them an email?
