I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I hope to add all the lovely images that have been sent to me. I accidentally deleted something from my computer and I can not open jpegs etc. I have more time today, so will continue to sort. Please don't stop sending!
Any problems or queries do please email!
And finally, May the 4th be with you!
This weeks focus is to multiply 3-digit numbers by a single digit. This is new learning, however you will soon see that you can use what you learnt last week. I will also still use the 'Fluency in Five' sheets. Remember to please just have a go at these and leave what you can not complete. Some of the questions look at last years work and your brain might not be able to remember that!
English - Spelling
This week we are going to focus on adding the prefix ‘anti-’ and ‘inter-’.
When we add a prefix to a root word, we are changing the meaning of the word. The prefix 'anti' means ‘against’ or ‘opposing’ and ‘inter-’ means ‘between’.
Firstly, please use a dictionary to check the meaning of any words that you are unsure of. Next, use our Spelling Menu to practice spelling these words.

English - Writing
This week we are going to continue with our stories. Our writing focus will be to use fronted adverbials. We has started to look at these before schools closed, but I was planning to go over them again.
Let's start from the beginning and spend a little time understanding what these are in small steps.
Please use the BBC website today to remind yourself what an adverb and adverbial phrase are.
Please have a go at their tasks to help you to use adverbials. I have attached these below.
These are the activities from the website. We will get back to our stories tomorrow.
Highlight all the adverbs that are used in the sentences.
Remember: Adverbs describe a verb. If you find the verb, it’s easier to find the adverb.
Complete the Magic Adverbs activity sheet.
Top tip! Read all the adverb options before you choose. Not all adverbs will work in every space.
Write five of your own sentences about what the gorilla monster in the first video got up to in the town.
Use adverbs and adverbial phrases to add description to your sentences.
Then underline all the adverbs you used in one colour and all the adverbial phrases you used in another colour.
