Writing - Shakespeare - Macbeth
Introduction - quickly remind yourself of tenses using this video.
In this lesson, we will revise the three tenses: past, present, future. We will then break them down into past, present and future progressive tense. Lastly, we will recap knowledge of how regular and irregular verbs change in the past tense.
This lesson talks about using past progressive tense (which simply means the action carried on for sometime) and the past participle. Here are some examples, the video will show you more.
Simple past tense - He walked to school.
Past progressive - He was walking to school.
Simple past tense - She ate her dinner.
Past progressive - She was eating her dinner.
Past simple - The children jumped in the puddles.
Past Progressive - The children were jumping in the puddles.

Today you will be using diagrams to learn how to convert fractions to decimals, then moving on to calculating using multiplication. Remember with a fraction you need to 'do the same to the top as you do to the bottom'. Click here for your learning video.

Blue - Now that you have mastered addition and subtraction we are going to begin multiplication and division. It would be good for you to practise your times tables, you can do this using education city, TTRockstars or by jotting them down. Your first lesson will be multiplying 2digit numbers by 1 digit number - I know you were all confident with this in class but it is a good to remind ourselves of the skill. Here is your learning video.
PE - Choose an activity to do with your family
Go for a walk (remember to follow the Covid safety guidelines) What can you see around your local area that has changed? Can you see any signs of spring coming yet? How is the weather different? Did you see any animals?
Can your child on one or all of these days take part in this excercise class. Its a good way to keep up an active lifestyle while in lockdown.
