3:00 – 3:15pm Final zoom (Miss Gover)



This week we will be continuing to look at the ‘ay’ sound in preparation for your spelling test when you return to school on Friday. Start by completing your one minute wonder to see if you can read more words in a minute than you did last week. Then look at the backwords words. Can you rewrite these in the correct order?


This week is retrieval week. Over the course of the week we will be revisiting the different maths concepts we have covered overt the half term. Today we are starting with place value and will be practising: rounding, finding 10/100/1000 more and less and ordering and comparing numbers. Miss Gover will remind you how to do these during the 9:30am Zoom call.


This week we will be writing a first person suspense narrative. The purpose of the writing is to create suspense for the reader.  Today we will explore how to create suspense by dropping hints to the reader that danger is coming. During your Zoom call at 10:45, Miss Gover will show you how this can be done. Your challenge then is to find the danger hints in the extract from Percy Jackson and then to rewrite the paragraph given, adding in danger hints to build suspense.

Guided Reading

You are going to start this week by doing some predicting. Remember to use the strategies you looked at with Miss Gerrity during last week’s reading catch up. Write your predictions using full sentences and explain your thoughts. The sentence stems in red are there to help – make sure you use them!

Maths Catch Up

In your catch up Zoom today, Miss Gover will look at how you can find fractions of amounts. She will complete the activity with you on Zoom.

Afternoon Challenge

This is our final lesson exploring the Ancient Greeks. Today we want you to find out more about the Greek Gods and Goddesses that you looked at in your art session last week. Using the information on the website (and some of your own research if you want to), create a Facebook profile for one of the Gods/Goddesses. Miss Gover will show you how to do this during your afternoon Zoom.
