Writing
 
Using your plan from last week and the model text, it's time to start writing your wishing tale! There is no need to write it all today, take your time as this will help you make sure your writing is the best it can be. If you look on Seesaw, you will find my example and I have stuck to the first two paragraphs so that might be a good starting point for you too. I will be posting the rest of the story throughout this week, so by Thursday this will be complete. 
 
SPaG - paragraphs
 
 
Watch the videos and complete the activities. Remember to use this when you are writing your story to remember when to start a new paragraph. 
Maths 
 
Multiplication (2 digits x 1 digit)
 
 
Over the next couple of weeks, our Maths learning will be a bit of revision from what we have done earlier this year. This week we are looking at multiplication and division. 
 
Watch the video and complete the activity attached. 
History 
 
What was life like in the Stone Age?
 
 
Watch the video and read the information. How have archaeologists found out about the Stone Age?
 
What might a day have been like in the life of a Stone Age person?
Answer this questions choosing how to set out your work. This could be:
  • A diary entry
  • A timetable of events
  • A comic book strip
  • An information text/ leaflet
  • Acting 
  • An interview
Or any other way you can think of!
 
There are also a range of activities at the bottom of the page that you can complete if you would like, for example craft ideas, a word search or if you can print then you might want to make your own woolly mammoth using the template. If you are unable to print then perhaps you could try drawing your own template or you could draw a picture instead.

Wednesday 6th May
 
English 
 
Writing - wishing tales
 
Now would also be a good time to read back through what you wrote on Monday and Tuesday to edit and improve. Check for punctuation, particularly commas after fronted adverbials and subordinate clauses, and inverted commas and speech punctuation. Can you improve your vocabulary choice or sentence structure at all?

Once you have read back through and edited and improved where you can, it’s time to carry on writing! Again, you can find my example on Seesaw. 
 
SPaG - co-ordinating conjunctions
 
 
Watch the video and complete the activities. I have also attached another activity sheet here as well as the poster with all of the conjunctions on it. 
Maths 
 
Division (2 digits by 1 digit)
 
 
Complete the activity which I have attached below. 
Science 
 
What do plants need to live?
 
 
Watch the videos and complete the activities. I have attached the final activity here.
Thursday 7th May
 
English 
 
Writing - wishing tales 
 
Today you can finish writing your story, find my example on Seesaw.

Once you have finished, it’s really important to go back and read through what you have written, as when we write the first time sometimes we make mistakes, miss things out or maybe we don’t choose the best vocabulary or sentence structure.

Once you have edited and you are happy with your story, read it aloud to someone in your family to see if they have any feedback for you! Make sure you keep your story safe until next week as we aren't finished with them yet!

VE Day 
 
This Friday we have a bank holiday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE day. VE stands for 'Victory in Europe' and it marks the end of WW2. I have uploaded a range of resources below which you may could use to learn more about this day, what it means and to celebrate it at home with your families! You can choose to complete whichever ones you like over the week and you might like to have a go at some of the activities at the weekend to celebrate as well. 
Here is a link to a lesson designed for KS2 to learn about VE day. The activity pack to go with it is uploaded below.
