Yesterday, your Mighty Writing task was to write a recount of your weekend news. Today you are going to edit what you have written and then write a little bit more. I have been really impressed with all of the editing that I have seen in the Mighty Writing that has been emailed to me!
Start by reading carefully what you have written. While you are reading, think about the following:
Have you remembered a nice, tall capital letter at the beginning of each sentence?
Have you remembered a capital letter for any names of people or places?
Have you put a full stop at the end of each sentence?
Have you used your sound mat and tricky word mat to help you spell words correctly?
Have you used any adjectives to add detail?
Now read you recount again and use a green pen to edit. Year 2s, you should be able to do this fairly independently. Year 1s, you might need a grown up to help you with this.
When you have finished editing, continue writing for another 10 minutes.
I would really like to read your recounts so please email them to me when you are finished!
Today we are carrying on with the 5 times table. Practise saying it out loud.
1 x 5 = 5
2 x 5 = 10
3 x 5 = 15
4 x 5 = 20
5 x 5 = 25
6 x 5 = 30
7 x 5 = 35
8 x 5 = 40
9 x 5 = 45
10 x 5 = 50
11 x 5 = 55
12 x 5 = 60
Now have a go at the below activity using your 5 times table skills!
Choose a repeated addition sentence from the sentence document below and have a go at making an array to go with it. Take a photo and then try another one. Remember rows go across and columns go down. Use whatever objects you like from round the house. I can't wait to see your arrays!
Choose one of my arrays from the below document and write the repeated addition number sentence to go with it like this:
