As mentioned, the plan with our activities over the next week will be to focus on practising key skills to help prepare for the return back to school.
Here is a basic overview of the week. As always, you don’t need to follow this if you don’t wish to.
Today’s focused practice is looking at multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1,000. Remember, when we do this, you can just more the digits up and down in their columns (each column up is ten times bigger – e.g 5 x 10 = 50 / 5 x 100 = 500 etc).
I would like you all to have a go at Q1 and 2 of the extension questions. For those of you feeling up for a challenge, you could also have a go at Q3 and 4. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, you could also have a go at the challenge question.
Today in English, we are going to looking at the use of standard English:
Over the next week, we will have a WCR session every day. With today’s text, you only need to read pages 7 – 11.

Art & Design
For art and design, we are going to focus on our listening skills and following instructions. You will also need some resilience and determination to ensure you don’t give up.

You will need to pause and rewind the video so that you have time to do the actual folding.
As mentioned last week, we won’t be doing P.E. this week. However, it would be great if you could do some additional physical activity each day.
For your daily physical activity, I would like you to run, cycle or walk every day (it could just be around your garden – even if it’s quite small!). Then, if you could send me in the distance you have completed (it could be an estimate if you’re not sure), that would be great. A picture of you completing your activity would also be great if you can! The recommended daily physical activity for children (aged 6-17) is at least 60 minutes over a whole day, so for this particular physical activity you could aim for at least 30 minutes.
