Wednesday 13th May

Good morning Mars Class!

Here are your lessons for today:

Maths warm up. Problems, including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division. Draw a large Venn diagram and label it as shown in the PowerPoint below. Write all the multiples of 3 in a line from 3 to 36. Write all the multiples of 4 in a line from 4 to 48. Now put each number in the correct place on the Venn diagram, crossing them off as you go.

Maths main. Using your knowledge and understanding of the Grid Method, find the missing numbers in each calculation. See PowerPoint below. Look carefully at the array to remind yourself where the grid comes from in Grid Multiplication. See how the big array has been partitioned into two smaller ones. Work through my example for the first question, then have a go at the rest.

Guided Reading. Read and enjoy this poem out loud together: The Dentist and the Crocodile by Roald Dahl:
Read the poem again out loud. Improve how you read it using an excitable voice where
needed (expression). Spot new and interesting words and discuss what they mean, e.g. require, repair, quivered, quaked, fearsome, molars, weeping, despair. Look up the new words found in the poem to find synonyms (words that mean the same) by using a thesaurus or Word Hippo:

Write the synonyms down alongside the new and interesting words to extend your vocabulary.

English. Discuss your favourite parts of the poem The Dentist and the Crocodile by Roald Dahl. Write a poem review using these ideas: I like this poem because… My favourite words in the poem are… I would recommend this poem because… Out of 10 stars, I would give this poem… because… Check your spelling and punctuation. You could also read the poem out loud, film it, and send to a family member/friend. Then share your poem review and ask for their opinion too!

Spelling. Practise your spellings for this week. All the words contain the /k/ sound, which is spelt "ch". This sound is Greek in origin. See the activity below.
