In English, we are continuing to look at relative clauses and relative pronouns and linking them to our class text: Goodnight Mister Tom.
Using the pronouns who, which, whom, whose and where, can you create your own relative clause sentences about the nouns you can see in the attached image below?

This is our last day on addition. Have a look at the calculation sheet below and see how many different calculations you can create to make the total.
What is your highest times tables score so far this week? Can you beat it today?
Art - Today you are going to design your own propaganda poster!
Look at the attached PowerPoint presentation to recap what you know about propaganda posters. Can you use plain paper or the templates provided, to design a propaganda poster of your own?
Today we are looking at adding whole numbers using the formal written method. This is what we would do if we can not add the numbers mentally like we did yesterday. Below are a number of calculations for you to add using the formal written method. Can you round the numbers first, to the nearest hundred, in order to estimate and then check your answers? Are your calculations correct?
Once completed, can you improve your times tables score from yesterday?
In English today, we are looking at relative clauses and how they are used in writing to add extra information about a noun. Below is a PowerPoint which explains about relative clauses and relative pronouns. Have a look through the Powerpoint and see if you can answer the questions at the end of it, using the examples to write some of your own sentences which contain relative clauses.
How did the Blitz affect our locality?
This week we will be looking at how the Blitz affected our locality. Read the information on the task document below and use it to create a bar chart that shows the total number of people killed or injured during the Blitz in Liverpool and Birkenhead. You can plot this information onto one chart by having two bars per month - simply colour them different colours - one for Liverpool and one for Birkenhead.
Once complete, answer the questions using your bar chart.
Monday 2nd November
In maths today, we will be looking at mental addition.
This is a topic we are revisiting and we have looked at strategies to add large numbers mentally. Remember to add the most significant number first and think carefully about which numbers wil change, which column (s) will change. Think carefully about your place value chart and draw this if necessary. It may help to make jottings on your page, counting up in thousands each time and then hundreds.
Once you have completed the mental addition activity, see how many times tables answers you can answer in 3 minutes (the grid can be accessed above)! You can complete one of these each day and try to improve your score. Keep note of which tables are slowing you down and practise these further.
English - 2.11.20
In English, we are focusing on homophones as part of our grammar work this week as this is an area we need to improve in our writing. The first activity below includes a range of homophones which are often used and spelt incorrectly in a piece of writing. Have a look at the meaning of the homophone and learn these. Next, look carefully at the spellings. Once you are familiar with the different definitions and spellings, complete the activity below it which requires you to choose the correct homophone and add it to the sentence. Can you spot the two words which are not homophones but which we keep getting muddled with in class!
Once you have completed this, look at 'Spot the Homophones'. There are two passages where incorrect homophones have been used in sentences. Can you identify all of the mistakes? Can you write out the correct homophones which should have been used, spelling them correctly? Finally, have a look at the challenge.
In Science this half term we will be studying the unit of electricity. We will add activities each week for you to complete to ensure you are not missing out on what we are covering in school. Enjoy!
When we start a new topic we usually begin with looking at the vocabulary that you will see and use throughout the unit. You may recognise some words from when you have learnt about electricity in previous years. Some vocabulary you may not have heard of yet but that is OK. Hopefully, by the end of the unit, you will confidently use them and understand their meaning too.
