Good morning Ash Class. It is important that you fit your learning into a time table which works best for you, but below is our suggested format for you. Please remember if you have any problems with today's work to send Miss Bridges an email at email@example.com. We would also love to see photographs of your work today. Good luck with your challenges.
Think about the following scenarios:
- Situation 1: It is sports day and you are happy that you are in a relay team. However, you know that people in the other teams can run faster than you. Why would you need perseverance?
- Situation 2: You find reading very difficult and you want to give up. Why would you need perseverance?
- Situation 3: Your best friend seems grumpy and you are getting impatient with them as you just want to go and play! Why would you need perseverance?
LO: To estimate the answer to addition problems.
Starter: To find the perimeter of a rectangle.
Fancy a challenge? Try this one... (Remember there are 10mm in 1cm)
It's important for us to know how to estimate the answers to calculations. This helps us to check our answers quickly.
We must use our skill of rounding to help with this. In our heads, we would round the numbers in the question to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000. If we want a precise answer- we would round to the nearest 10.

LO: To recognise the features of an explanation text.
Starter: To recognise and use apostrophes for plural possession
Last week we looked at using apostrophes for plural possession. Have a go at creating your own silly sentences using the table below. Draw a picture to go with your sentences.
What does the word explanation mean?
If you can, have a look at the text below and see if you can identify some of the features of an explanation text.
Then- have a look at this jumbled explanation text- can you put it in order?
LO: To infer information from a video.
This week, we are continuing to focus on the skill of inference. This is where we gather information by 'reading between the lines' or looking for clues in a text. Today I would like you to watch the video below and think about the character of Tiddalik the frog. As you watch the video, consider what type of character he is. (Click the picture below to load the video- it's near the bottom of the BBC page)
Task: Either draw a big picture of Tiddalik the Frog that takes up a whole page or you can use this outline drawing of Tiddalik if you have a printer.
Inside your drawing, write down all the things that you have inferred about Tiddalik from the video.
To do this, you need to think about how he acts and behaves, and what this shows you about him.
what he's like
whether he is a good friend
whether he is kind or mean
what the other animals might think about Tiddalik
If you want to challenge yourself, see if you can provide the evidence to support your ideas. Using the word 'because'.
For example: I think that Tiddalik is mean and selfish because he drinks all the water when the other animals have not had any.
LO: To revisit words we have learnt before.
LO:To read and write the names of animals in French
