Today in Maths we are learning about placing numbers up to 10,000 on a number line. Have a look at the below video, then complete the worksheet. The answers are available for you to check your work once you have finished. 



Today we are learning about contractions and discovering the contracted form of a range of words. Remind yourself about contractions using the video below. Then, have a go at identifying the gaps in each sentence:


Example: we'd --> we would

1.          --> we will

2. we're -->

3.          --> we have

4. there's -->

5.          --> you had 

6. you'll  -->

7.           --> you are

8. you've --> 



Today's focus is on figurative language. Can you remember what a simile is or a metaphor? What is the purpose of this type of language? Have a look at the link to BBC Bitesize below, which explains this type of language if you can't remember. There are some really useful bits of information on there! 


Once you have reminded yourself about figurative language, have a look at the description of Tiddalick the Frog, which comes from an aboriginal Dreamtime story. Can you draw a picture of the frog based on the description? Then, add your own similes and metaphors around your picture to describe the frog. 


Tiddalik was a frog who only cared about himself. He was always very hungry and thirsty and liked to gobble up all the flies before the other frogs had a chance. He was as greedy as a starving pig. It was the hottest time of year: the land was as dry as a bone and all the animals were very thirsty. Kookaburra and the birds were just about to drink when Tiddalik opened his enormous mouth and drank up all the water in the stream. While Tiddalik slept, Kangaroo led all the thirsty birds and other animals to a wide flowing river. They were parched. Then Koala took them to a billabong... but each time Tiddalik came along and drank all the water because he was a pig. 



Today we have another PE lesson where we are finishing off our learning of football by applying the skills we have learnt to a game situation. If you have a ball at home, can you show your grown ups what you have learnt? Perhaps you could even challenge them to tackle you whilst you try to get around them. As long as you are keeping active (if you are able) and enjoying yourselves, I am happy for you to choose which activity you complete this lesson. 



We will be taking some time today to finish our indigenous art from yesterday's lesson. If you need more time to finish, please use it now. 

Reading Comprehension


This year, we will be working hard on our reading comprehension skills. You need to be able to read the words, but comprehension shows that you have also understood the content and context of what has been read. We focus on two main skills - retrieval and inference. Retrieval questions require you to find the answer directly from the text, whereas inference questions focus on your understanding - what do you think may have happened and why? How do you think the character is feeling and what makes you think that? These questions require you to make sensible assumptions based on what you have read and find evidence in the text to justify your ideas.
