Don't forget our Microsoft Teams chat at 10am this morning!  I'm looking forward to meeting you all!  Either click the link sent to your welearn365 email address or follow the instructions sent out by Mrs Bamford.  See you soon!  Miss C :-)




LO: Can I solve money problems?


Work through the PPT problems, trying to solve them before clicking on to the next slide to see the solution.  Do read the questions carefully – is it asking how much do they spend or have left?


Now have a go at completing the activities.  Again, it is ok to start at the third question on the fluency if you want to.  The extension (pdf document) involves finding half and a quarter of money amounts.  If you need to use written division to help, that is ok, although it is possible to halve and quarter (half and half again) mentally with jottings.


I have also included the crisps and ice cream puzzle to have a go at if you have time left!


LO: Can I use a new line for a new speaker?


Back to speech today! We know how to punctuate speech correctly but it can be more tricky to make our meaning clear when writing down speech involving more than one character.


Use the Powerpoint to recap using a new line for a new speaker when writing a conversation between two characters.  You can then either use your playscript from your Shakespeare work and write some of it out using speech punctuation and a new line for a new speaker or use the activity from the Word document (NB: by speech marks, they mean inverted commas) and write the speech out correctly.  Please write the conversations into your book.  About 6 different speech lines is plenty!


LO: Can I generate ideas for character interaction?


You can approach today’s activity in one of two ways:

  1. Ask someone in your house to take part with you (if they have time as well as completing their own work!) and act it out.
  2. Create models/use toys to represent the characters and role play it in that way.


I’d like you to imagine two characters meet in the rainforest.  This could be two different animal characters (you could use your animal from earlier in the week) or an animal and a human.  Have a go at role playing the conversation between them. 

What do they say to each other? (Are they helping each other or is it a predator and prey conversation?)

How do they act towards each other? (suspicious, scared, intimidating, friendly etc.)


Think about how they might move to show their feelings as well – a huge part of communication is down to body language, tone of voice etc., not just the actual words spoken.  (If you are not sure what I mean by this, try having a conversation about something you really want with your parents and try to identify how you use your body when you’re talking as well!)


Using the speech bubbles, insert the words spoken and jot down any extra information (suitable speech verb, movement etc.) by the side.


LO: Can I explain why it is important to keep teeth healthy?


Firstly, you might like to carry out this egg investigation to see the effect that different drinks have on our teeth.


NB: It is not compulsory to carry out the investigation as I know it may be difficult to get hold of eggs for eating, let alone science investigations!  You can also crack the eggs, keep the contents for cooking and just use the empty shells.  You can use the liquids that you mainly drink at home and, if you can spare the toothpaste, you might like to cover one shell in toothpaste too.


If you scroll down on this website, it shows you the outcome of their investigation.


Using the PPT and/or the third information page from the crickweb teeth activity, learn about why it is important to maintain healthy teeth and advice for how to do so.


What is the main advice that you would give people?  How we could help persuade younger children of the importance of keeping teeth healthy?  I’d like you to create a poster or a TV advert for younger children (maybe with a character and/or a catchy slogan to engage them), explaining to them about keeping their teeth healthy.
