Maths

Today we are going to be recapping some learning from last year. dividing 2 digits by 1 digit number,

Here is todays video.

Spr4.2.4 - Divide 2-digits by 1-digit (2) on Vimeo

English

Today I would like you to read through the Lorax book again and describe the different characters using the following: 

*Adjectives

*Verbs

*Adverbs

*Similes

 

Describe what the character looks like and their personality and explain why they are like that using evidence from the text. 

 

Here is an example of how the Lorax is described.

The Lorax is a small, orange creature. He has fluffy fur and what seems to be a pale yellow moustache. He's a caring creature who loves the environment. He also shows that he has feelings for the Forest Animals and the Onceler for when he tries to warn him that cutting down the trees is bad for the environment and could affect the whole world. But The Onceler didn't listen, He just went on cutting down the trees anyway. But still, even though The Lorax may seem mean and grumpy. He has a good heart. Just don't judge his instincts or trigger him by doing something he doesn't like. And he is also known as thoughtful, hard-working, earnest, loving, optimistic, rational, affectionate, understanding, trustworthy, helpful, efficient, responsible, assertive and selfless.

I have attached a copy of pictures below of the characters I would like you to describe. You could draw a picture of each character you have described.

In order to enhance our learning, and allow siblings to work together, we have decided that each Monday we will have a whole-school focus on an interesting topic. 

It is all linked to the curriculum and it has been extended it for different ages, but we felt working together would support the learning process.
