Today, we are going to be continuing with our new book, ‘The Borrowers’ by Mary Norton. Today, you will be reading pages 35-40.

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)
• Clarify the meaning of words you didn’t know
• Summarise

Literacy

Today, you will be analysing and interpreting a setting description from an extract of the text. As part of this lesson, you will need to draw the setting, which we have already done as Monday’s Art lesson (if you have not done this, then complete this today). You do not need to draw the setting from scratch but may choose to add different things to your drawing that you hadn’t previously included.

Remember to send me some photos of your fantastic, descriptive sentences.

BRAIN BREAK

Now you are half way through today's learning, it is time for a brain break. Follow this link to a Brain Break 'Animal Meme' video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jo09ni01Z4s

Maths

Green - Today, we are going to learn about problem solving - calculate quantities. This is new learning.

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/511578840

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.

ROY - Today, we are learning to count in tenths. A tenth is when an object/shape/amount is split into 10 equal parts therefore, 10 should be the denominator of the fractions. If there are 10/10 shaded, that is equal to 1 (a whole).

After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. This is recapped learning so try and think back to what you covered when learning about fractions in year 2. 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.

Blue - Today, we are learning to make arrays. Arrays are drawings/representations for multiplications and divisions.

Computing

Today in computing we are learning about fake emails. It is important that we are able to identify genuine and fake emails.

You may receive fake emails to:

• Try and access your computer or your email account and take information.
• To trick you into sending personal information which might allow them to access your bank accounts or other important personal data. When someone sends an email trying to trick you into giving them personal information, it’s called ‘phishing’. The culprit is literally phishing for your information.
• Some fake emails just want to send more fake emails to your friends to cause annoyance and frustration.

Here are some clues to help you look out for fake emails:

• Email addresses that aren’t spelt right, e.g. me@mysch00l.com – the letter o has been replaced with a zero so that it still looks like it’s spelt right.
• Spelling mistakes within the email, such as “How RU?”
• Not calling you by your real name or using your full name too often.
• Too good to be true: fake emails can offer a free gift, a prize, or lots of money, usually so that they can trick you into sending them money, or installing a virus onto your computer.
• Attachments or links that come without explanation. Sometimes an email will look like it comes from your friend, but the scammer is ‘spoofing’ their email account so that the email pretends to be from your friend. Often these emails have a link to click on which downloads a virus to your computer or email account. Even worse, your friend might have accidentally clicked on a dodgy link which has allowed the hacker to send emails from their account.
