Remember that you should be reading for at least 20 minutes each day. Here is the link to Accelerated Reading so that you can complete a quiz when you have finished a book.

I have also added to link to Oxford Owls if you would like access to some ebooks. I will put the username and password on my blog. 



L.O. To use evidence from a text

We are going to continue reading The Wind in the Willows and meet a new character: Toad. You can listen to me read the beginning of Chapter 2 by following the link below. There is a copy of the end of the text below for you to read along if you like. 

As you are listening, think about the character of Toad. What words would you use to describe him and how do you know?

If you have a printer, you can print out the sheet below to record your ideas, or you can create a similar table on paper at home. 


L.O. To divide by partitioning and exchanging

I hope that you are getting better at dividing by now. I have seen lots of great work coming in to me. 

Today's work is going to be a live lesson at 10:45. The login details are the same as Monday's lesson: they are also on today's blog. 

If you are unable to join the lesson, the powerpoint, including questions, is below.  


L.O. To understand the water cycle

Last week, you created some amazing models of rivers, but I wonder, where does all that water come from in the first place?

Today, you can find out. Work through the presentation which contains the task. I couldn't put the video into the presentation as it was too big to upload, so the video is below. If you would prefer to so the writing task instead of the model, that's fine. I am looking forward to seeing your creations!

Follow the onscreen instructions to think arefully about what information you should share and who you should share it with.
