Today is a physical maths challenge. No work in books. Send us a picture and a time.  

How many ways?

Take 3 different items of clothing. It could be 3 different coloured socks or 3 different coloured objects. Organise them in all the possible combinations as fast as possible. Get someone to time you and see how fast you can get.  HINT: There are 6 different arrangements that can be made. 

With the coloured pencils above, I have found 2 different ways of organising them. 

The aim is to be systematic.

Monday English 

This week we are going to read a book called Flood by Alvaro F. Villa. However, there are no words in the book so it is all about looking at the pictures in detail. Each day we will look at a page from the book and write what we think is happening. We will be writing the story of the book as we go along as if there were words.  We have taken pictures of the book but they don’t do the illustrations justice. We are using sentence stacking all week so you could set up your English book like we do in class. This means putting your ideas on the left page and your perfect writing on the right page.

The video of Mr W going through the lesson is here: https://youtu.be/1gTmelmzoO8

Follow along and pause it when you need to write something down. 

1. Look at the picture before you do anything else and discuss/write down what you can see happening (Like we do in class) You could create a word bank or even find some interesting synonyms.
2. Our first skill is to write a sentence with an ‘adverbial phrase’.
3. Our second skill is to write a sentence with a complex sentence.

Monday Maths 

We are dividing 2 digits by 1. It is getting tricky now. Watch the White Rose video and complete the sheet.

Monday Geography 

We are spending some more time learning about volcanoes. Remember there are some interesting pages in our Google Classroom resources area if you want to find out more. Watch the video. Complete the tasks as best you can.

Tasks:

1) Use the blank map to locate and label the ring of fire. Include a title. 

2) Can you name any countries that would be impacted by volcanoes? Label them on your map. 

3) Make a table with reasons for and against living near volcanoes.  

Monday PE

1) Send in your results for the weekly PE challenge on the school Class Dojo page. 

2) Dance.  Have a look at the PowerPoint and try to create your own volcano dance.
