Today, we are going to be continuing with our new book, ‘The Borrowers’ by Mary Norton. Today, you will be starting Chapter 3, pages 22-26.
Work through the Reading PowerPoint and follow along with the teacher recording. You will need to complete today’s written task. The text is attached below.

Here is the order we usually follow in class for Reciprocal Reading:
Predict (sensible guess)
Read the pages
Clarify the meaning of words you didn’t know
Answer the questions
This week in Grammar, you are going to be learning all about adverb clauses.
An adverb is describes the doing word e.g. The boy ran quickly.
An adverb clause tells us more about the verb in a sentence. An adverb clause has a:
Begins with a conjunction (when, if, because, so, and, although, eventhough, unless, even if)
Answers the question why, when or how.
EG - The train has stopped because the engine broke.
Adverb clauses are known as subordinate clauses - a part of a sentence that doesn’t make sense on it’s own, it is there to add extra detail.
Follow this link to the video resource centre, where you can watch me explain today’s learning:
Once you have watched the video, work through the questions given. The answers are attached for you to mark them after.
Today, we are recapping fractions of a set of objects. This is learning from the previous year but it is really important that we recap this before we move on.
Here is the link to a video that will teach you everything you need to know for this lesson, just as I would teach you in class: https://vimeo.com/510395871
After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.
Attached is a true or false for you to answer. Work through it and explain your answers. This is just a discussion to have with somebody else, you do not need to write anything down.
As this is a recap lesson, all children must complete all questions.
This week in Art, you are going to be using your sketching skills and your knowledge of shapes and lines to draw a picture of the Borrowers home, using the parts of the book we have read so far.
First I would like you to skim through the pages and make notes of anything we know about the Borrower’s home (Chapter 2 from last week has a very detailed description of their home).
Once you have found out all that you can about what their home looks like, I would like you to use shapes, straight and curved lines to sketch what their home looks like. Try to think carefully about the sizes of their furniture and home items and home they are used in their home.
This will come in handy as this week in Literacy, we will be writing a setting description of the Borrowers home, and the picture you create can be used to help you write this.
Please listen and enjoy a chapter a day of this incredible book.
