Happy Friday Class Four!
At school, I always start a Friday by saying Happy Fishy Friday to you as lots of the lunch choices are fish. I wonder how many of you will be having fish to eat today at home instead as it's quite traditional to eat fish meals on a Friday?
I hope you are all coping well with the home learning and enjoying the tasks set. Remember that you can email me any work you want to share or any questions you have. I always like hearing from you.
Have a great day, keep working hard and then it will be the weekend. Make sure you have a good break and rest from learning over the weekend so you are ready to start again on Monday.
There is no silent writing planning for over the weekend this week - this will be part of your learning time on Monday.

On Friday, we always do our spelling test in class. Ask a grown up if they can read the sentence out loud slowly for you as you write it. Then check to see how you have got on. Good luck!
On Fridays, we often do something different in Maths. Today, I have written some fruit themed word problems for you to solve. Make sure you read through the problems carefully. Think about which operation is needed and which strategy you can use to solve. Remember that worded problems should have a worded answer!
I've included my workings and answers so you can check your work.
Spellings and Handwriting
Next week, we will be revising how to add the suffix -ing to a verb. Here are your spelling sentences for your test next Friday. Have a look through to familiarise yourself with them and particularly focus on where there are words ending in -ing.
Now work through the handwriting sheet below to help you start practising this week's spellings - it's just like the ones I make for you each week in class. Write out the -ing words as many times as you can on the line. Then copy out the sentence in the space underneath. Make sure you join your letters and that each letter is the correct size.
On Fridays, we always have a PE session in class. At home, you might like to do one of the PE with Joe workouts from the lockdown period - if you search for 'YouTube PE with Joe', then lots of these come up and you can choose one to do.
You might want to have a go at some Pilates as we've been doing this at school over the past few weeks. I've put the link to the music I always use below and you can see if you can remember the moves we have learnt (breathing, calf raises, Pilates squats, sit ups, roll downs, arm circles, balancing, plank...).
Or you might have some other PE activities you would like to do at home, perhaps there is an activity you can do in your garden?
I don't mind what activity you do as long as you are moving!
