For today's task practise using your spelling words in sentences. Do you know the differences between the homophones? Remember to use your neatest handwriting and golden sentences.


Fun English quiz [Homophones]





English: Today we are going to do a non-fiction reading comprehension on Bats. Remember non-fiction are books that based on real facts.




First read the text and then answer the questions to show your understanding. Remember to answer using full sentences.






Maths:  Today we will be revising our understanding of division again using arrays and pictures. Division is when we share groups equally.



Ben has 15 counters he would like to share with his 5 friends. If he circles 5 groups he will have 3 counters in each group. So each of his 5 friends will get 3 counters.



Enjoy the videos below then read through the learning slides (pages 32-44) and complete the worksheet. Can you try to draw your own division array?


Have a go at the division game!

Art: Today we will be making a beautiful sunshine picture using a new painting technique - dot painting. We will use cotton buds to make our dots.



If you do not have a printer or paint you can try dot printing with coloured pencils and felt tips. You can try the additional resource of dot painting a summer scene if you would like. Have fun! smiley
