Today you have 3 new chapters to listen to:
Chapter 6 – Brown Paint, read by Sam
Chapter 7 – Grandma Gets the Medicine, read by Mrs Brammer
Chapter 8 – The Brown Hen, read by Mrs Crombleholme
You can complete today’s activity after Chapter 7 if you wish.
Today’s work is all about similes. Similes compare 2 things using ‘like’ or ‘as’:
‘he was as brave as a lion’,
‘she was as white as a ghost’,
‘he slept like a log’.
In Chapter 7 Roald Dahl uses a simile when describing what happened to Grandma when she had the medicine to help you imagine what it was like. Read the ‘Extract from Grandma gets the Medicine’ below and see if you can spot the simile. If you can, underline it in the text.
Then have a go at the ‘Sassy Similes’ sheet by coming up with your own similes to describe Grandma. You could use some of these examples to get you started:
She was as small as…
She was mean like…
Start by taking the quiz to see if you are ready to move on from learning about inverse operations.
This lesson will apply known multiplication facts to a wider range of questions.

In French today we will be revising our colours. For the lesson you will need some colouring pencils, felt tips or paint and the activity from the resource section called ‘French Colours’.
