For our English today we have a short animation to watch.  Follow the link to watch the animation called 'Tuesday'. We know it is Monday! Watch it once to become familiar with with the details.  Then use the story-board to draw and make notes about the main events.  Keep a careful eye on how the animation shows that time has moved on.  What do you think will happen next? How would you explain the events?


Revise you knowledge of modal verbs - we worked on these together as part of our persuasion unit so they should be familiar. Look at the picture of 'Rusty and the Frogs'.  Using the six questions from the 'Think and Write' section, write full sentences using your modal verbs.


For your writing challenge - choose a person from the 'Interview Priorities' list. Which person do you think will give you the most information? Using the 'Detective Notebook' create 6 questions to ask your chosen person. Remember to ensure you use open questions with the appropriate punctuation at the end of your question - ?.  On another piece of your 'Detective Notebook' record the answers to your questions - as if you are the person being interviewed by a detective. Can you explain what has happened?




Please see your MyMaths account for today's maths task. Complete the lesson before attempting the homework. Remember you can use your book for workings. We will monitor results online.


You must remember to log out of your portal and then log out of MyMaths - otherwise your results might not be sent to us.


Today you will be looking at percentages and comparing them to decimals and fractions. Percentages are very similar to fractions as they refer to something as being out of 100. 100% is the maximum total you have. If everyone in KS2 completed their maths work this would be 100%. If the 90 children in Year 5 completed their maths work this would still be 100%. You need to think about how much of the total  you have. So if you have 30/100 as a fraction this would be 30%. What do you think 6/10 as a percentage would be? You can find your equivalent fraction, which would be 60/100, and then you know this is 60%.



Using the instructions from the Anglian Water booklet, can you filter dirty water?

Create your own dirty water using mud, stones, leaves, and twigs. 

Give your mud a good stir.

Make your own filtering device – can you think of any other stages you could add to the process?

Try filtering your water.

Before you start filtering, draw a diagram of your filtering process and the water before it is filtered - you could take a photograph and stick this in instead.  After you have finished draw / photograph the water you have now. Can you explain how each of the filtering stages helped clean your water?

** Do not drink your water after it is filtered – it may look cleaner but your tummy won’t like it **
