Please practise reading. You can read anything...a book in your house, a magazine, a newspaper article, a recipe - literally anything! Just practise reading to the punctuation, practise your flow and your decoding skills (sound the word out, split the word up etc).
Today we are going to have another go at writing some of our own sentences with expanded noun phrases in them. Have a look at the videos below to remind yourselves all about nouns and expanded noun phrases.
So remember... nouns are people, places or things. Expanded noun phrases are where the noun is described. Now that you're in year 5, we definitely need two adjectives (separated by a comma) before the noun. You might even want to add more detail to the noun by using 'with' after the noun. I'll explain how below:
On your sheet (below) you will have some sentences with little description. Find the nouns. Describe with two adjectives and a comma. Add with to add more detail if it makes sense to. Example:
The boy and the alien wondered if they'd ever meet again.
The polite, friendly boy with straight, jet-black hair and the curious, quiet alien with snot green, smooth skin wondered if they'd ever meet again.
*Please ignore the last picture/sentence on the sheet below.*
Today, we are going to be practising our 4 and 8 times tables. In fact, we will be practising these times tables all week. Practise the songs below and then test yourselves on Daily 10 (click level 4 and then multiplication).
The main thing we are focusing on today is rounding to the nearest 100. Have a look at the teaching video on the link below named, 'Rounding to the nearest 100' to help you. This is a recap from Year 4.
When we are rounding to the nearest 100, we use the tens to help us decide whether to round up or round down. This rhyme might help to (read it again after you have watched the video).
5 or above, give it a shove.
4 or below, down you go.
So if the tens are 5 and above, we round up. If the tens are 4 or below, we round down.
This afternoon, we should have PE. Try doing some exercise in your garden or even in your room. Perhaps you might like to do a Joe Wicks workout (there are lots on Youtube).
