Grammar check.

Can you rewrite these sentences so that they have correct grammar?

1.)    We was working on our homework.

2.)    We done our job well.

3.)    I liked worked there.

4.)    Johnny sad.

5.)    The tiger jump through jungle.

 

_____________________________________________________

 

Write out a simile that could be used instead of these adjectives. One has been done for you as an example.

 

Fast – as quick as a cheetah

Slow

Tall

Short

Angry

Happy

Boring

Cold

Hot

 

Now see if you can use these in a sentence. Write them out underneath your sentences.

Example: She ran as quick as a cheetah to catch up with her friend.

Maths

See attached sheets for Column addition, subtraction and multiplication work.

Either copy out and complete these questions or print out the sheets and work on them there.

Youtube tutorials are available for each of these methods:

Addition: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rL9qX57BzsA&safe=true

Subtraction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GazztzsIuY&safe=true

Multiplication: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eO8rJRBZzAQ&list=PLA9628771EE83094E&index=2&safe=true

We have done all of these in class so it should be that you can have a go at these independently.

Ongoing Project

As part of our History topic, we are studying the Anglo Saxons.

You need to research the Anglo Saxons and answer these questions:

-          Who were the Anglo Saxons?

-          Where did they come from?

-          What did they eat?

-          What did an Anglo Saxon village look like?

-          What was Anglo Saxon life like?

-          Who ruled the Anglo Saxons?

-          How long did the Anglo Saxons live in England? From what year to what year?

-          Are there any Anglo Saxon words that you use in English today?

 

You can present this information however you like. It could be:

-          A poster.

-          A fact file

-          A model/set of models

-          A play

-          A script

Or any form of writing/performance that contains the answers to the above questions.

 

Other Tasks

Times Table Rockstars! – Keep trying to get your score for the Studio as low as possible. Go for under 4 seconds.

Spellings! – Have a practice spelling out some of these words with a partner. The more practice you can get with these words, the more confident you will be and it can only help when we come back.

Try and play Silly Bulls with the words – can you break up each word into its’ syllables? How many syllables does each word have?

E.g – Continue = 3 syllables. Con – tin – ue

Any other learning or practice you would like to do would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for being patient and for trying your best with these activities.

 

Have a good week!
