Below you will find all the learning for today. This includes reading, writing, maths and a foundation subject (Science, Geography, History, R.E, Computing, art or Design Technology). The coloured activities should be completed if your child is in that group in class. All reading texts and worksheets can be found at the bottom of the page, some reading texts will be posted Monday for use all week.

Reading - Holes today we are going to begin reading from chapter 4 until we get to the break in the text where the guards says 'your not in the Girl Scouts' anymore. You have a document below to guide you through it, there is also a video where you can get some extra help if you need it.

Writing - The Highwayman

In this lesson you will investigate and practise writing complex sentences using 'As adverbial clauses' based on all the Highwayman learning we've done so far.

A complex sentence has a main clause and a subordinate clause . Remember that each part of the sentence needs to have a verb. You will need to complete the sentences as you work through the video, it is especially important that you mark them with the teacher to ensure you have included all the features.

Green and Yellow - Complete the True/False activity and then write four additional complex sentences.

Orange and Red - Complete the True/False activity and then write two additional complex sentences.

Blue - Complete the True/False activity.

Maths - Today you will be continuing the work from last week on translations. On Friday you translated shapes, today you will be translating shapes and using your coordinate knowledge to draw and translate shapes. Your video is here and your worksheet is at the bottom of the page.

Green and Yellow -  Complete questions 1, 4,5,6

Orange and Red - Complete questions 1 - 4

Blue    Your lesson today is about finding half of something. Remember fractions are when we split a whole object into equal parts. Here is a quick game so that you can practise spotting if we have split a shape into equal parts or not. Please find your sheet below.

Origami Paper Box -

What is origami?

Origami is the art of paper-folding. Its name derives from Japanese words ori (“folding”) and kami (“paper”). Traditional origami consists of folding a single sheet of square paper (often with a coloured side) into a sculpture without cutting, gluing, taping, or even marking it.

Today we are going to practice making a box, that will eventually have a removable lid that you can use to store things in. They can be made any size as long as you have various sized paper. You will need to make the paper square shaped. This is how to do it:

1. Take a sheet of rectangular paper and fold it as shown in image A.
2. Use the edge as a guide to cut off the lower rectangle B.
3. Unfold the triangle and you will get a square with a diagonal crease in it. You can save the excess paper for another project.

The instructions for how to make the box can be found here. Try following the instructions and make a box or two. Email me a picture of how well you did.

There are a few tricky folds. This is origami after all.

I do also have an image that goes through the steps shown in today's video. This is here:
