Wednesday 29th April

Good morning Mars Class!

Here are your lessons for today:

Maths warm up. Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 4 times table.

Start by counting up in fours from 0 to 48 and back again.

Then search for for things to count. I used Oxo cubes. Make an array from 6 columns of 4. See photo below. Write as many number sentences as you can about the array. Now make a new array to see how many columns of 6 there are in 24. Write as many number sentences you can for the new array. What do you notice?

Maths main. Interpreting data using pictograms. Calculate the number of greetings cards. See PowerPoint below. Look carefully at the key. The symbol represents 4 cards in the first set of questions, 8 cards in the second, 50 cards in the third and 100 cards in the fourth.

Here are the answers to the first set of questions, where one symbol represents 4 cards:

Total Birthday cards    = 4 + 4 + 4 + 2 = 14 cards

Total Thank You cards = 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 16 cards

Total Get Well cards    = 4 + 2 = 6 cards

English. The Stone Trolls: Background information, glossary and story. See pages 3 to 6 from the Talk for Writing booklet below. You can listen to the story at

Guided Reading. The Stone Trolls: What do the words mean? Vocabulary work. See page 7 from the Talk for Writing booklet below.
