Can you write each of these words into a sentence?



Starter- Set yourself a timer and try to complete as many of the times tables questions as you can. Can you beat your score?


Remember you can practise your times tables as often as you would like on Times Tables Rockstars. 

Main Input- Today we are going to be learning to find the volume of a range of shapes. Use the PowerPoint and listen to the audio recordings to remind yourself on how we do this. Once you have finished this try the activities below.



Starter- Today, I would like you to follow the link below to access work on how to include formal language.

You will also be learning about the blue whale. Remember to watch the video before completing the tabs marked the grammar bit and whiteboard challenges. If you would like to challenge yourself further you can continue with the writing ideas. I am looking forward to seeing the work that you produce.

Activity- Think back to chapter 2: 

- What dilemma do the family face?

- What should Jim and his family do next?

- What would you suggest to him? 


Let's think about Emily and her actions so far.

- How do you think she felt when Mr. Spink came crashing through the door?

- What does it mean for her family?

- Do you think she knew it was going to happen? 


Today you are going to be writing in the role of a character. I have chosen Emily. Here's the start of my writing: 


The night feels so cold and interrupted. I am trembling in front of Mr. Spink as he spits venom into each and every insult that he aims at my mother. As I look across at Lizzie I can see her face becoming paler and paler; I know I have to say something. 


I am trying to use emotive language. Try to include similar elements in your writing.


I would like you to write in the role of Mr. Spink in chapter 2. Think about the language that he uses and the way his character behaves. Try to include his thoughts and feelings of Jim's family- remember he said he was an old man!


Chapter 3-
