Today's planned activities:




Have you told your parents/carers about the walkie talkie situation?  Perhaps now is the time to let them know!  Well anyway, Mr Moss is signing off our witness statements today and is passing them on for us. 


Today, we are thinking about what kinds of things we might need to explain to Banjay.  Remember this man has been stuck in space for a long time!  He doesn't quite know what to expect when he arrives back on Earth.  Write a letter/email with explanation for Banjay which might help him adapt to life on Earth.   You might want to remind him of daily activities that he may have to do which he wouldn't in space.   You might want to explain how to adapt to our new routines to help keep us safe.  


Success criteria:  

- Capital letters

- Full stops 

- Co-ordinating conjunctions (FANBOYS - for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so)

-Subordinating conjunctions (AWhITEBUS - as, whilst, if, though, even though, because, until, since)

-Connecting adverbs (Also, in addition, as well as this, plus, furthermore)


I'll give you an example of how you might structure your letter: 


Dear Banjay,


I am writing to inform you of a few changes that have happened here on Earth recently so that you can adapt easily when you land back on Earth.  


First of all,......................


In addition to this,.....................



Hopefully, this letter will help you settle back into daily routines and will enable you to have a smooth transition from space to Earth.  


Yours sincerely, 


Mrs Burns






Begin by practising your 3 and 6 times tables and test yourselves on Daily10.  

Yesterday, we were practising how to add and subtract 1, 10, 100 and 1000 to a number.  After going through the work together, I think we all need a little more practise on this.  We really need to concentrate on crossing boundaries.  E.g. if I had 204 - 10 I could ignore the 4 and see the number as 200.  What is 10 less than 200?  Yes - 190.  Add your 4 back on and there you have your answer of 194.   


I will attach the teaching video that we watched some of yesterday.  Please have a go at the warm ups and then watch the video.  Please concentrate especially on the part which explains how to add and subtract 1, 10, 100 and 1000.


*The worksheet is slightly different to yesterday’s. Instead of going back to your starting number you carry on the answers in the table using your previous answer. E.g. 2014 + 1 = 2015 + 10 = 2025 + 100 = 2125.* 


The answer sheets are attached below each question sheet.  Please check your work AFTER you have had a go yourself.


+ and - 1, 10 and 100

+ and - 1, 10, 100 and 1000

The answer sheet is attached below the question sheet.  Please check your work AFTER you have had a go yourself.
Mental Arithmetic

We have been practising similar questions for this test. Have a go and see how you get on.

The answer sheets is attached as a separate file below the question sheet.  Please check your work AFTER you have had a go yourself.



Practise some of the words we have been looking at with the suffix -ly.  Remember - if you are stuck, use our say it how you spell it, say it, write it and check it technique.














Have some fun doing an activity of your choice (with your parent/carer's permission).
