Hi there, Discoverers,

Thank you for an excellent effort with the work that I set you yesterday. 

Today in English, we are going to continue learning skills, to help us write our poems. 

Yesterday, you created pairs of words, which rhymed.

Today, I would like you to create some two-line poems, using your rhyming words, but focusing on using ‘silly sentences’. 

Your short poems can be as creative as you wish, and don’t even need to make sense. This will help you to think about how you can use your chosen rhyming words, at the ends of each line. 

Have fun creating your silly sentences!

Well done for challenging yourselves in maths yesterday. You did a fantastic job with the answers I have seen. I have included the answers, so you can mark them yourselves. 

Today, we are going to move on to adding fractions. This time, they will make an improper fraction. This is where the numerator is bigger than the denominator. 

When we create an improper fraction, we can turn it into a mixed number fraction. This is where we find how many whole ones have been created, and how many parts are left. 

For example: 3/4 + 3/4 = 6/4. In the fraction 6/4, we know that we have 1 whole (as there is one lot of four within the number six), and then we have 2/4 left over. 2/4 is an equivalent fraction of 1/2, so you could record it like this. 

See my examples to help you. 

How did you get on saying the months of the year in French? If you want to keep working on your pronunciation of the words, or your French accent, today you could watch the video again, and have another go. 


Today in French, it would be great if you can practise writing the months of the year in French. You could write them down as Alexa says them in the video, or you could use my poster to copy them. 

Have a great day,

Mrs Taylor
