Growing Life Long Learning

Get in Touch

Friday 8th January

Welcome back to your learning. Like yesterday, do the best that you can. Remember to check answers in maths and best joined handwriting in literacy. If you have any spare time, learn your times tables and your spellings (these are in your pack when you collect them).



Today's lesson is all about looking at two maths statements and seeing that they have something in common. For example: 3 x 2    and    3 x 20 . These two maths statements both have a "3 lots of" and you can see that 20 is to times bigger than 2. This means you can use the answer from one to help you with the other.


If 3 x 2 = 6. Then, 3 x 20 answer must be 10 times bigger. So, 3 x 20 = 6 x10 = 60


If  ? x 6 = 180. Then, use the fact that 3 x 6 = 18. So, 30 x 6 = 180


You can watch me talking about today's work and giving more examples:


GOAL: To Learn How to Use Speech Marks

Today, we are going to have our first look at using the correct punctuation for speech in a story. First, have a look at a story book you have in your house. How can you spot when someone is talking? That's right - there are some special mark to show the speech. These are called inverted commas...


Here is an example from our class book:

"Ah, Mildred, come in and sit down while I finish this register," Miss Cackle said pleasantly.
The inverted commas are the " marks at the start and then end of the part that is said out loud. I have underlined the part of the sentence that is said out loud.
