It's forecast today to be the last day of really nice sunny weather this week, so make the most of it!  

Once you've done your morning exercise:

 

a) Spend half an hour reading!  I've been enjoying reading The Hobbit with Aaron the last few days, and we read outside as often as we can!  It's lovely. 

 

In your green maths book:

 

Answer to yesterday's Challenge question: 9 x __7 = 513.  The missing digit is a 5, i.e 9 x 57 = 513

 

b)  Yesterday, you practised some multiplication calculations.  One use for multiplying is to work out areas of shapes.  For rectangles, this is simply one side multiplied by the other.  For example, a rectangle measuring 8cm long by 4cm long, would have an area of 8 x 4 = 32cm².  (If you were to draw this rectangle in your maths book, it would have 32 squares in it - each one is 1cm²). 

First, draw these rectangles into your book (using the squares to help you) and write the area of each one:

i) A 6cm by 4cm rectangle

ii) A 3cm by 9cm rectangle

iii) A 5cm by 5cm square

 

Next, don't draw for these ones!  Carry out the calculation necessary to solve it.  

What is the area of a rectangle measuring: 

iv)  44cm by 6cm 

v)  8cm by 39cm

vi)  9cm by 78cm

 

Remember each time to write the units as cm²!

 

In your purple writing book:

 

First of all, the words from yesterday.  The rhyming pairs are:

cough and trough

enough and rough

plough and bough

bought and thought

dough and though

 

c)  Follow the link below to the pobble365 website.  You should see a picture of some horses!  (If not, you may need to go back to the June 1st day).  Look at the picture, then read the story starter.  

i) Answer the 'Question time' questions in your book

ii) Do the 'Sentence Challenge'.  You know some collective nouns already e.g. a herd of horses, a flock of sheep, a school of fish.  As the challenge says, can you find another ten?  My personal favourites are the collective nouns for crows and for jellyfish, if you can find them out!

iii) Do the 'Sick sentences' in your book.

iv) And finally the Perfect Picture!  Happy drawing!
