Monday - Thursday we will be looking at an Enid Blyton story called, 'The Kitten That Disappeared'.
The power point below will be used all week. You shouldn't need to print it out (it is very long!) Work through the questions like we would do in class, if it asks you to TTYP then see if a grown up is able to listen to your idea.
The text is all in one document, I will upload the text each day and just read the pages you are asked to so you don't get too far ahead before you need to.
Once you've worked through the power point slides for today , move onto your written task.
For your maths learning today I would like you to practise your multiplication and division facts.

For your grammar learning today, we are still looking at conjunctions!
Conjunctions are joining words. We use them to join sentences.
Last week we learnt how to use and, but & or.
I like chocolate cake and I ate a big slice.
I like chocolate cake but I was too full to eat any.
I sometimes like chocolate cake or I sometimes like fruit.
Today we are learning how to use two more conjunctions – so & because.
Here are some examples using these conjunctions.
Put the chairs on the table.
I can sweep the floor.
Put the chairs on the table so I can sweep the floor.
I don’t eat eggs.
I don’t like how they taste.
I don’t like eggs because I don’t like how they taste.
Can you think of endings for these two sentence stems?

We went for a walk because________________
