Friday 20th November

Good Morning Hawthorn Class!


Here are your activities for today...


As always, you can choose what order you do the activities in, but we suggest trying to do the Comprehension, Writing and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Let us know if you have any problems with this. Don't forget to save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail a copy to us each day.


1) Comprehension

Find out about the different layers of the ocean. Read the text then answer the questions.


2) Writing

It’s time for the next section in our non-chronological reports: Where do they live?

Today we’d like to you to write a paragraph (at least 3 sentences) about where the Octoclaws live. Be as imaginative as you can!

  • Where is it?
  • What is it like?
  • Who do they live with?

They could live in a dark, gloomy cave under the sea or in a thick seaweed jungle on the bottom of the deep ocean. Don’t forget your capital letters and full stops.

Here is an example from our seaweedles text to give you some ideas:

Where do seaweedles live?

All seaweedles live in the Atlantic Ocean. Usually they live close to land because they like to come out of the sea every day to warm up. Also they live near to rocks so they can hide from people. If they hear people, they hide in caves, but they never jump out. Most young seaweedles live in small groups called hoards and are rarely alone. However, older seaweedles like to live on their own.


3) Maths

 - Yesterday, we learnt to count in 50s and 100s, let's see if we can use this knowledge to solve money problems involving 50ps and £1s. Complete the sheet below. 

- We usually do a times tables test on a Friday, ask someone at home to test you on the times tables you are on and let me know your score in the zoom meeting this afternoon. 


4) Spelling

Complete the look, cover, write, check sheet for this week's spellings. Can you write your spellings in alphabetical order? 


5) Topic

It's anti-bullying week! Design a poster to display around the school to encourage friendship and kindness, and to remind everyone that we are a no bullying school. You can do this on a plain piece of paper or if you want to challenge yourself, why not create a poster on word using the skills you have learnt over the past couple of weeks. Remember to make it stand out using bright colours. 


6) PE with Joe!
