Literacy – Can you find the definition of these key words using a dictionary? (www.collinsdictionary.com)

Owls– gentle, dizzy, clumsy, lively, frail

Bats-  glorious, naughty, relaxed, upbeat, witty

Badgers–  athletic, amusing, bold, determined, diligent

Foxes– adorable, ambitious, courageous, decisive, honorable

Now use the se words in 5 sentences. Remember to add a range of connectives, adjectives and openers.

This week we are learning to spell interesting adjectives to add to our writing:

Owls –  gentle, dizzy, clumsy, lively, frail, fair, nice, wise, busy, excited

Bats –   glorious, naughty, relaxed, upbeat, witty, friendly, gentle, dazzling, entertaining, generous

Badgers  athletic, amusing, bold, determined, diligent, gorgeous,  confident, energetic, fearless, intelligent

Foxes  adorable, ambitious, courageous, decisive, honourable, knowledgeable, independent, imaginative, hilarious, thoughtful


Number gym—work through the MUST, SHOULD and COULD challenges!  Don’t move on until you are lightening fast!  But, keep challenging yourself.  Year 3 children should be pleased if they have completed the MUST and  some may well have tried the COULD.  Year 4 should work through MUST and SHOULD and some may have tried COULD. Year 5 children should be working well though the MUST and SHOULD and be working to achieve  the COULD.

Year 3 —have a go at completing the x3, x4 and x6 times table in order in under 1min 30secs then move on to the 3 and 4 X tables in random/mixed order.

Year 4—be successful at the 3 , 4,6 and 9X tables in order and then have a go at them in random order.

Year 5—be successful at the 4, 6, 7 and 9X tables in order and then have a go at them in random order.

Remember – even if you know your number facts keep refreshing your brain so you don’t get rusty.
