For your reading learning today you are going to read a non-fiction text about rainforests.
I wonder if you know anything about rainforests already?
Read the text carefully, make sure you look at the headings as you will know what that part is about.
When you answer the questions about the text, skim through until you find the part the question is asking you about.
For your maths learning today you will still be using arrays. Instead of writing the multiplication statement, today you will write the division statement that accompanies the array.
See this example:
Altogether there are 20 pears. They have been shared into 5 columns with 4 in each column.
The division statement would be written like this:
20 ÷ 5 = 4
Just like the multiplication statements there are 2 division statements for each array.
Division statements always start with the whole amount being shared.
Yesterday you watched a video based on the story ' The way back Home' by Oliver Jeffers. We collected adjectives (describing words) for the different body parts. Today you are going to use those adjectives to write some expanded noun phrases.
Expanded noun phrases are phrases that have a noun and adjectives to describe it.
Watch the three short clips below about Dave the troll to see some examples of expanded noun phrases.
Now you have seen some examples of expanded noun phrases you are going to have a go at writing some of your own.
Eyes - bright, blue and bulging eyes staring
For each part of the alien look at the adjectives you collected yesterday and use these to help you write expanded noun phrases for each part.
Remember to use commas to separate adjectives when using more than one adjective.
