Our timetable for the day is above which will show you when each lesson will be. We will stick to these video times for the forseeable which should help you plan your day around this.

We will continue with the 3 video lessons a day, there will be 15 minutes of input and then the rest of the time will be your own to go and do the activities.

We will be marking this work and using it as proof of attendance for each day.

Maths

So today's maths is going to involve not knowing the value of two numbers in a question - initially this can sound scarier, however it actually means there are more correct answers than ever before!

So, today we will look at questions such as, a + b = 10. Initially it seems difficult as we don't know what either number is, however, that also means that there are loads of corect answers! For example, a could = 1 and b could = 9 (1+9 = 10) but also a  could = 7 and b could = 3 (7+3 = 10). Two correct answers for one question!

Working these out can often be a case of trying a number and seeing if it works, if your answer is too small, make your numbers bigger; if your answer is too big, make your numbers smaller! For exmaple, if I went to the shop and bought 2 chocolate bars and 1 fizzy drink, all for £5, then there are a range of prices each thing could have cost me:

The chocolate could have been £2 each (therefore £4 on chocolate) and the fizzy drink would have been £1. (£4 + £1 = £5)

But the chocolate could also have been £1 each (therefore £2 on chocolate) and the fizzy drink would have been £3. (£2 + £3 = £5)

Complete pages 44 & 45 in your CGP Books then have a look at the challenge below.

English

I'm going to go through some SPaG in our Google Classroom Meeting. Again, make sure you are logged in and ready to write by 10:20am as we will again only have 15 minutes of live video. You will need your plain exercise book ready with something to write with.

Having looked at commas a fair bit last week, we are going to carry on seeing how they can be used in our writing.

Commas are used after adverbials at the beginning of our sentence; these are often called fronted adverbials. An adverbial tells you where, when, how or how often something happens (e.g. Next week). We are going to complete page 43 in our CGP using commas after our adverbial phrases.

Use the link below for some guidance.

Then we're going to complete the other use for commas, to add extra information (in the same way brackets do). This, usually, happens in the middle of a sentence to add extra information to a sentence. You surround this extra information with a comma. E.g. Kieth and Mike, who'd never met before, got on really well.

Complete pages 43, 44 & 45 in your CGP book. Use the link below for any guidance.

MfL

We are going to look at objects around our house and colours so complete the video below, then complete the writing and colouring activity with it.

## Spanish 19: describing with colours and the verb ser

Enabling children to describe someone or something using colours and some part of the verb ser.

Complete the worksheet below - if you can't print it, copy the simple images into your book then colour them in using the pencils school has provided.

Log back into Google Classroom for a live reading of our class reader "Blitzed" by Robert Swindells.

Make sure you are logged in by 12:50pm to ensure you don't miss any of the story!

Enrichment

For your enrichment session, feel free to play a game with our family or help them out with a few tasks around the house. No doubt this will make the weekend a little bit more relaxing for the whole family.

Below is a link to a Youtuber who specialises in drawing for children. I know many of you love completing drawings so feel free to give any of these a go!

Finally, lets sign off the day with 20 minutes of reading your school reader or a book that you are enjoying. Send a photo of your signed reading record through to me.

Well done for today everyone! See you bright and early at 8:40am on Google Meets! And don't forget to send all of your work through to me on Dojo, email or Google Classroom.

Have a good weekend all!
