How many dots?

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

We can find the total number of dots on two dice by adding them together.

When we have lots of dice, it is going to take a long time to add all of the numbers together! 

We can be more efficient at finding the total number of dots by grouping the tens first. We can group the dice faces that add up to make ten. Once we have found all of the groups of ten, we can find the total number of tens and the ones left over.

There are six tens = 60

Left over we have 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 = 6

60 + 6 = 66


Today I have four different challenge levels for you. I am not expecting you to complete all of the challenges if you are unable to but I do encourage you to have a good try. This will be a challenge but persevering will get you through to the end. I believe you can do this!


Begin at level 1 and see how many you can confidently complete. You can draw the dice face in your yellow maths book and use your colouring crayons to colour in your groups of ten as you find them. Write down how many dots there are on the dice faces for each level.

What is the question?

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

We have learned all about different types of punctuation.

  • Full stops
  • Exclamation marks
  • Question marks


Remember that a sentence will usually end in a full stop.

If the sentence shows strong feelings, emotions or a raised voice, we would use an exclamation mark.

For a sentence that is asking a question where we need an answer, we would use a question mark.

See if you can work out which punctuation you would need for each of these sentences.

  • The moon is shining

  • I can't believe we made it

  • What time is lunch

Here we have some answers. Can you see if you can think what the question might be?

Answers Possible question
Green. What is your favourite food?
Cheese and tomato pizza. What is your favourite song?
Old Town Road What colour are your eyes?


Task 1:

Octopus Comprehension Book: Page 19.

Trace over each sentence. Draw a line to match the speech bubble to the person who said it.


Task 2:

Can you think of what question might have been asked to each of the people for them to give their answers?

Write the questions in your blue writing book remembering to use question marks as your punctuation at the end.

Design and Technology & Golden Time

Making a moving vehicle

Today we will be attaching the wheels to our vehicle by running the axle through the cardboard box, toilet roll tube or bottle that you have collected as the body of your vehicle.


Carefully poke 4 holes in your body as close to the bottom as possible without breaking it. Try to keep them as lined up as you can. 

Run your axle through the body and attach the wheels on either side. Give it a test to see if any adjustments are needed.

You can now decorate your vehicle to make it look how you wanted it to in your plan.

Please send me a photo of your completed vehicle when you have finished!
