Now you have been subtracting by counting up, I'd like you to recap column subtraction. You can start doing this by using the expanded column method. If you feel comfortable with this, try the compact method to subtract. Remember to exchange from a different place value column whenever necessary. Email me if you have any difficulties with this.
Today, you need to use fractions again. Remember that fractions are "parts of a whole". I want you to find fractions of amounts. Use the strips on the document to help find fractions of amounts. Fold the strips or use the images on the Learning Reminders if you are finding it tricky.
Read today's poem. It is called The Dragon Who Ate Our School! Try reading it out loud using expression. Can you make the beat of the poem clear as you read it? Recap features of poetry and try to identify them again in today's poem. Does this poem use different features to the Bumble-Bee poem from yesterday.
Today, you are going to add to your noun phrases. Use yesterday's work to remind yourself what noun phrases are and how to write them. I would like you to write some sentences about the things the dragon ate. Use the pictures to remind you. Use prepositions to make noun phrases in your sentences (there is a list on the Revision Card).
Read the poem on the document. It is called The Snake Song. Discuss the structure of the poem by answering the questions underneath it.
Then I would like you to use the instructions and the writing frame to write a poem about an animal of your choice. When you've written one, use the poem paper to rewrite it in your very best handwriting. Decorate the borders with pictures that go with your animal.

Wednesday's P.E. with Joe Wicks.
Keep going guys.
This time, I would like you to use a blank map of Africa and label at least 10 countries on it. If you don't have a printer, you could draw or sketch a map of Africa and use that instead. I've attached some examples at the bottom.
