# Monday 1st February

Good morning Class Four, hope you had a lovely weekend. Here is a morning message from me:

## Monday 1st February Morning Message

Here are some pictures of my fur babies!
And here is an update on the bathroom after another busy weekend - all the plasterboard is down, now I just need to take the wood down then it will be a huge room!

PE

Here is your daily challenge - this looks tough, don't start too fast as there's three rounds to complete! Good luck!

I will be joining in with PE with Joe at school today, I hope you will all be joining in too.

Maths

Start by watching my warm up video below and working through the questions.

## Monday Maths Warm Up

We are going to be carrying on with our work on long division until Wednesday this week. Then on Thursday and Friday, we are going to be exploring the Mayan number system, so mixing Maths and Topic learning together which will be fun!

Today, we are going to be learning about what happens when you divide by a number which is not a teen number. Start by watching my video.

## Long Division

Then, have a go at the worksheet below. Today, I would only like you to work through Page 1 (so Questions 1-4). We will work through Page 2 tomorrow.

I've included my workings and answers so you can check your work.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a go at the long division extension task below. These are some worded problems which involve the long division method. Remember that word problems need a word answer! I've attached my workings and answers so you can check your work.

10am Assembly Live

Mr Woolley will be doing a whole school assembly today at 10am on Teams. Your parents will have been sent the link on Parentmail. I'll be watching at school too.

English

Last week, you all worked hard finding out facts about the different Mayan Gods. I really enjoyed hearing these when we did our Google Classroom Topic session on Thursday. I have included a document below with the facts you shared on it and a link to all the work which was sent in to me with fact pages, documentaries and top trump cards which you might want to have a look at first. I have also put the Powerpoint we looked at in this link in case you want to refer to it.

For your silent writing task this week, I would like you to imagine you are a Mayan person who is praying to one of their Gods. You will need to think carefully about which Mayan God you want to pray to and what you will say to him/her.

Today, I would like you to plan your writing, then tomorrow you can write your prayer.

Complete the planning sheet below which has lots of questions and suggestions on to help you.

Today Mrs Soley has filmed herself reading another one of her 'Custard Castle' stories for you called 'Dragon Dilemma'.

First watch the video, then she would like you to have a go at making a comic strip to retell the story. Remember that a comic strip is normally made up of pictures of characters with lots of speech and thought bubbles to show what is happening. You might also want to include some captions with your pictures. I've made a template you could use for this activity. Remember to send in your work so she can have a look.

Spellings

This week we are carrying on with our work on the quadgraph 'ough'.

Start by working through the Powerpoint to remind you about some of the sounds these letters can make and to practise using these words in sentences.

Next, have a go at the 'Ough Word Activity'. You will need to read each sentence carefully and think about which ough word could be used to fill the blank space. There is a word bank on the second page if you need it (but this has lots of ough words on - far more than the empty spaces, so you won't use them all).
