# Thursday 21st January

Here is a morning message for you from Mrs Soley:

## Thursday message

The couscous recipe is coming tomorrow for your cooking lesson so don't worry that it's not on today's page!

PE

Here is today's PE challenge. I'm really looking forward to this one as I love martial arts and am missing my kickboxing lessons! I know some of you are keen martial art-ers too, so I hope you enjoy this.

Maths

Today, I would like you to start by completing your Beat That challenge. If you're working from home, then you should have received this in an email. If you're working in school, then you will need to get this from your tray. If you need one, then just drop me an email and I will send it through. Give yourself 2 minutes to complete it. Let me know how you get on and if you have passed I will send you a new one for next Thursday.

Today is our last lesson on short division. You have three options for your learning today.

1. If you would like to do some more work on short division with remainders, then work through the Oak Academy 'Division with Remainders' lesson below. Watch the video, pausing to complete the tasks, then have a go at the quiz.

2. If you are feeling quite confident with short division, have a go at the short division without remainders word problems below. Remember that word problems need a worded answer! I have included my workings and answers so you can check your work.
3. If you are feeling really confident with short division, then have a go at the short division with remainders word problems below. You will need to think carefully on each question about whether you need to round the answer up or down. Remember that word problems need a worded answer. I have included my workings and answers so you can check your work.
If you have some time left, Mrs Soley has found some online division games for you to have a go at to help you practise your division skills.

English

Here is this week's SPAG challenge from Mrs Kimble.

First, read her message to you. Next, read through the help sheet so you understand how commas can be used with fronted adverbials. Then, have a go at the SPAG challenge. Finally, remember to send me any work you complete so I can forward it onto her. Look at all those fronted adverbials I have used with commas!!!

Topic

The Maya Civilisation covered an extremely long period of time!

Have a go at the BC and AD quiz to check your understanding of these terms. There are two options:

Easier: Quiz on Page 1, Answers on Page 2

Harder: Quiz on Page 3, Answers on Page 4

Watch the short video below which shares information about how the Mayan Civilisation changed over time. The video will remind you about lots of the facts we found out last week and hopefully you will also learn a few more.

There is one mistake I spotted in the video - it says it started in 1800BC, which is correct, but then it says '800BC' on the screen, so just ignore this!

Finally, create your own Mayan timeline to show some of the important events which happened during the Mayan Civilisation period. You will need to draw a timeline (with a ruler if you have one!) and then cut and stick the events on the document below in the right order. Look carefully to see if the dates are BC or AD! I have included my timeline as well so you can check you have ordered the events correctly.
