Reading - Holes by Louis Sacher
Today we will continue our reading from where we left off yesterday. So We will start from the break in chapter 4, from where it says: Stanley had to remove... and will finish today's reading at the end of the chapter.
Stanley has arrived at the camp and Mr Sir is here to welcome him. What do you expect Mr Sir to show/explain to Stanley as he is a new arrival. Think about what new teachers talk about when you start a new class or what your boss would do on your first day of work.
Retrieval Questions: All groups do all questions today
SAT style questions:
What do you think Stanley's thoughts were at the time this conversation ends? Explain what thoughts are going through his mind, in 3 sentences.
Writing - The Highwayman
In this lesson you will generate our own vocabulary to describe the setting of the poem and the main character. We will use some of these words to practise writing our own sentences using fronted adverbials.
Fronted adverbials go at the beginning of a sentence to give us more information, they tell us when, where and how something happens, they are followed by a comma. Here are some examples:
Now - watch the video pausing as you go along to gather vocabulary and write your word bank and sentences as you are asked to. Then I would like you to use the word bank to write some sentences as explained in your group below.
Green and Yellow - Write four sentences with an adverbial opener for each setting - the moor, the trees, the moon - and the highwayman.
Orange and Red - Write three sentence with an adverbial opener for each - the trees, the moon and the highwayman.
Blue - Write a sentence about the wind using an adverbial opener to describe how it blows. Write a sentence about the highwayman using an adverbial opener to describe how he is riding his horse.
Maths - Fractions
Green and Yellow - Yesterday we turned fractions into mixed numbers. so 5 out of 4 = 1 whole one (4 out of 4) and 1 out of 4 left over. 1 and 1/4. Today we are doing the opposite, you need to look at a mixed number 1 and 2/7 and find it is made from 9/7 altogether. The lesson can be viewed here and your sheet is below.
Orange and Red - Building on yesterday's work we are finding fractions that are the same value (sized bars) but are written differently. Your lesson can be found here. Work through the activity and complete the sheet for your group below.
Blue - Continuing this week's work on Fractions. Today you will find half of a shape or number of objects. The lesson is here and the worksheet is found below.

Origami Paper Box -
What is origami?
Origami is the art of paper-folding. Its name derives from Japanese words ori (“folding”) and kami (“paper”). Traditional origami consists of folding a single sheet of square paper (often with a coloured side) into a sculpture without cutting, gluing, taping, or even marking it.
Today we are going to practice making a box, that will eventually have a removable lid that you can use to store things in. They can be made any size as long as you have various sized paper. You will need to make the paper square shaped. This is how to do it:
The instructions for how to make the box can be found here. Try following the instructions and make a box or two. Email me a picture of how well you did.
There are a few tricky folds. This is origami after all.
I do also have an image that goes through the steps shown in today's video. This is here:
