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).
Fronted adverbial phrases
A fronted adverbial is an adverbial which comes at the front of the sentence. An adverbial is extra information about a verb. It is separated from the rest of the sentence by a comma.
After tea, we played on the park.
The sheet below has some examples of fronted adverbial phrases that you could use to write your own sentences linked to the story, 'The Way Back Home'. In class, we would have played this like a bit of a game. If you roll a 1, you write a sentence with an adverb for how, if you roll a 2, you use an adverbial phrase for where and so on. If you roll a 5 or 6, you get to choose which type of adverbial to use. If you have a dice, use it. If not, don't worry, just choose which ever adverbials you like to write at least 8 sentences of your own with adverbial phrases and a comma.
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 10, 100 and 1000. Have a look at the teaching video on the link below named, 'Round to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000' to help you.
When we are rounding to the nearest 10, we use the units to help us decide whether to round up or round down.
So if the units are 5 and above, we round up. If the units are 4 or below, we round down.
When we are rounding to the nearest 100, we use the tens to help us decide whether to round up or round down.
So if the tens are 5 and above, we round up. If the tens are 4 or below, we round down.
When we are rounding to the nearest 1000, we use the hundreds to help us decide whether to round up or round down.
So if the hundreds are 5 and above, we round up. If the hundreds are 4 or below, we round down.
Remember the rhyme...
5 or above, give it a shove.
4 or below, down you go.
This afternoon, we should be going swimming. 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).
