Fluent in 5:
Please complete the questions above, aim to complete them within five minutes and then use the inverse operation to check your answers.
Well done to all of those that have been improving their scores or getting 5/5. If you have forgotten how to work something out, drop me a message and I will do my best to explain.
Reading: Yesterday, we looked at the story of Odysseus and the Trojan War. Today, I would like you to have a look at the attached newspaper report below, which is based on the Trojan war. Read the report carefully and then answer the questions in full sentences in your green books.
Spelling: We are going to continue with looking at words that contain -fer.
When adding a suffix to root words that end in ‘fer’, the final ‘r’ is dropped when the ‘fer’ is not stressed in the newly created word. If the ‘fer’ is still stressed then the final ‘r’ remains creating double ‘rr’.
Please complete the activity in the sheets below. If you don't have a printer, you can write out the words and then put the correct definition next to each one.
English: We are going to be looking at identifying 'Simple Sentences'.
To be able to do this we need to understand what makes a simple sentence.
A simple sentence is a sentence which consists of just one independent clause.
This means that it must have a subject (the person or thing that performs an action) and a verb (the action).
The tiger escaped. tiger = subject escaped = verb
A simple sentence can also have an object at the end.
E.g The tiger escaped from the zoo. zoo = object
A simple sentence always makes sense on its own and does not contain any conjunctions: FANBOYS or ISAWAWABUB
Have a go at completing the activity on SATs Companion 'Identifying Simple Sentences'.
Maths: Well done to all of you yesterday who completed the activity rounding decimals. Today you are going to have a go a rounding any given whole number. The good news is that the rules are exactly the same as yesterday so as long as you follow them thoroughly, you can't go wrong.
Log on to SATs Companion and complete the activity 'Rounding any whole number'.
Science: We are continuing our work on 'Forces' and today we are going to be exploring friction. Open the file below to find out more about today's science investigation and accompanying tasks.
After the investigation, if you have recorded each of your results, you could always create a graph on excel to show your findings.
I hope you all have a lovely day and I look forward to receiving your work.
