Maths starter activity:
As before, write down your score in the back of your maths book. Can you beat your best score? Hopefully, by now you are ready to focus on the x3 and x4 tables. Perhaps, you could even try the x8 (which is just double x4).
The rest of this week, we are going to have a few revision lessons on written calculation methods.
Watch this video to help with today’s Addition and Subtraction (1) lesson:
- Start with the Ones in each question
- Line up the numbers in columns carefully – one number per square
- Don’t forget to count any numbers you put under the answer line
- Check asnwers
If you do want to do practise, try a few (not all!) of these questions:
GOAL: To Write a Formal Letter
You are going to have a go at writing a letter today. This will not be a chatty, informal letter. Instead, it will be a formal letter. This means you are writing to someone you don’t know about something important. You should use proper words (I have; not I’ve) and make sure the reader knows what you want.
You are going to pretend that you have been to a café/restaurant (some of you may never have done this, but I’ll help you imagine) and things have gone wrong. You did not enjoy your meal. Imagine it is the next day and you sit down and write a letter of complaint. This means you are going to say what was the problem and what you would like the café manager to do about it. Use first person (I) and lots of conjunctions. Write mostly in past tense - except the last paragraph which will talk about what you want to happen next.
Here is an example of what the layout of the letter could look like:

In this video, I’ll show you some pictures of café scenes and talk about what you could complain about:
