# Thursday

Today, you will be reading pages 81-85 of our book Fantastic Mr Fox. This includes the ending of the story and some additional information that is included at the back of this Roald Dahl book where another of his stories is advertised. Your written task is a prediction.

The text is attached below along with the Reciprocal Reading PowerPoint that you can follow as you read the pages.

Here is the order we usually follow in class for Reciprocal Reading:

• Predict (sensible guess)
• Clarify the meaning of words you didn’t know
• Summarise

Literacy

Today, you will be finishing your retell of Fantastic Mr Fox by writing the ending.

The ending should include:

• Mr Fox, the small fox and badger returning home.
• The feast.
• The farmers still waiting outside the hole.

To make this exciting for the reader, you could:

• Include exciting, descriptive vocabulary.
• Include some speech between characters, punctuated correctly.
• Use fronted adverbials at the start of sentences that show where, when and how. E.g.

In the deep, damp hole, …

One gloomy evening, …

Sneakily, …

• The characters’ thoughts and feelings (make them exciting, not ‘happy’ or ‘sad’)

Enjoy writing and be sure to send me your opening to our class email, I am looking forward to reading them.

Maths

Today, you are going to be learning how to describe position.

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:

Sum4.11.1 - Describe position on Vimeo

After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheets.

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.

DT

This week we would have blocked out some time to complete our DT nightlights, however that is not possible due to us not being in school. However, I have thought of some other practical ideas that may be fun for you to complete at home.

For today’s DT task, I would like you to design and create your own sandwich, using the materials you already have at home.

The first step is to design your sandwich. It is important you consider who the sandwich is for and their preferences. Think about what ingredients you will use. Will they be hot or cold? Will they include meat or be a vegetarian sandwich? There is a design sheet attached should you wish to use it. You will need to draw a diagram of your sandwich and label the diagram showing each ingredient.

The next task is to safely make the sandwich using the utensils and ingredients from your design.

Once you have made the sandwich, allow the person that you made the sandwich for to eat it. Think about these questions: Did they like the taste of the sandwich? Did your sandwich design suit the consumer? Is there anything you could have done better?

Enjoy!
