# Wednesday 8th July 2020

Good Morning,

I hope you are all well and having a good week, so far. I also hope you are all working hard!

Remember to send me an email to let me know how you are all doing.

Stay safe,

Miss Sharpe

Today, we are going to read the rest of chapter 13. Once you have read today's pages, I would like you to clarify these words and write a definition of them using a dictionary that you have at home or an online dictionary.

Words to clarify:

• billowed
• toppled
• overboard
• bail
• frantically
• spluttering

Literacy

Today, I would like you to look back at your plan from yesterday and you are going to see if you can improve it by adding adjectives and adverbs to describe how, when or where your superhero saved the day on Nim’s Island by defeating the storm.

Add the adjectives in one colour into each box on your ‘S’ plan and then choose a different colour to write your adverbs onto your ‘S’ plan. Below, there are two word banks that you may use for ideas if you need some inspiration of words you would like to include.

Maths

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green: Today you are going to revise dividing by partitioning. This is an informal method for finding the answer to bigger division sums. Watch the video which shows you how to find the answer using partitioning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OH28l1lP5RM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeA4T-S6z8E. Remember, this is all learning that we have covered in class so you should understand the concepts. If you don’t have a printer, write the answers on a piece of paper with the question number in the margin.

Here are the sums I would like you to find the answer to (you might need to use the knowledge of the times tables you have learnt - 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8):

1. 85÷5=
2. 72÷4=
3. 69÷3=
4. 96÷8=
5. 84÷4=
6. 48÷3=

Now, do the inverse (the opposite) to check your answers are correct, for example:

If the original question is 33÷3=11, you will need to do 11x3= (work backwards through the original question using multiplication) and if you get the answer 33, you got the answer right.

Blue 2: Today you are going to continue revising the topics we have covered so that you remember everything ready for Year 4 learning. There are 2 revision mats that I would like you to have a go at.  Remember, this is all learning that we have covered in class so you should understand the concepts. If you don’t have a printer, write the answers on a piece of paper with the question number in the margin.

Blue 1: Today you will be learning to compare statements. You will need to find the answers to the calculations before you compare the statements. You should be able to do this completely independently (an adult may need to read the questions for you). 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).

History

Today in History, you are going to be learning the last part of our history ‘Anglo-Saxons’ topic. It is about this very important question that has caused an impact on the life that we live, today - ‘What events brought Anglo-Saxons rule to an end?’

Here is a link to BBC bitesize, which talks through the events that caused the Anglo-Saxons not to be in charge anymore which caused their ruling to come to an end - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zxsbcdm/articles/z3s9j6f

Once you have read through this information, I would like you to create a storyboard by using the template sheet below to order these events with short explanations, to tell the story.
