Thursday 4th June 2020

Hello Dahl class! Today, I am going to send an email to your grown ups with the information regarding our Zoom meeting on Monday at 12pm. Keep your eyes peeled.

Have a lovely day!

Today, we are going to continue reading our final chapter of ‘The Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth.’ Read pages 8 and 9 below. Then, you are going to answer these questions below (in full sentences).

Q1 - What did Will ‘agree’ to by shaking Marty’s hand?
Q2 - Why did Marty only manage four days of keeping his promise to Will?
Q3 - Why do you think that Will was lucky to have seen the phosphorescence?
Q4 - How did HP find out about Marty and his secret about his tooth being broken?
Q5 - What made Will jump out of bed quickly?

Literacy

Now we have read the end of the story, today you are going to plan your big write that you will do on Friday. The writing aim will be to write the end of the story.

Your focus will be on these questions:

• What do you think Marty will say about his tooth getting broken?
• How will he tell mum and dad?
• What will he tell them what happened?
• How might they react?
• Then what might happen to finish this story off? Will it be a happy ending for the family? Will Marty and his Brother (Will) finally decide to stick together or will they continue to tease and make fun of eachother?

You decide:
You need to either complete an ‘S’ plan to plan the ending of this story or you can use the question prompts above to help you create a story board with images and key words about the main parts to the ending of your story. Attached is a template you can use if you have a printer.

Maths

ROYG - Today you will be learning to recognise and describe 2d shapes. Remember, a line of symmetry is when you can divide a shape into 2 parts that mirror each other (the same both sides) - here is a video to explain this clearly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFzktJNmnPU&t=22s. A quadrilateral is a shape with 4 sides. You will need to remember what we have learnt about obtuse and acute angles if you are in Yellow or Green group. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

B2 - Today you will be learning to describe turns. Here is a link to a video that might be helpful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFC46Fb5xv. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

B1 - Today you will be recapping ordering numbers to 10. There will be a range of mathematical language used such as, ‘more than’, ‘less than’, ‘fewer’. You need to be able to understand whether this language means more or less. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

Spelling

This week, I would like you to have another go at reading and spelling our common exception words with a grown up, as this is the time of year where I would have quizzed you on them again.

First, I would like you to read through the words with an adult and take note of the ones that you didn't quite get correct.

Then, I would like a grown up to call out the words for you and you can have a go at spelling them. This does not need to be done in 1 day as there are lots of spellings, perhaps you could focus on one column per day, just like we do in school.

B2 - If you score well then have a go at moving onto reading and spelling some of the ROYG common exception words.

B1 - If you score well then have a go at moving onto reading and spelling some of the B2 common exception words.

Attached are the lists of words, feel free to print the document and mark the reading and spellings under the correct column, so you are able to practise at home.
