We have included some screenshots from the lesson, to show you how to do the join, in case you are unable to see the screen.  


English  - introduced in the live lesson  

On Friday, the children should finish writing their recount. During the live lesson, we will talk through each of the Success Criteria points and show the children how to edit and improve their writing. If your child finishes writing their recount, encourage them to look back through their writing and edit and improve it where they can.  

The Learning Objective and Success Criteria are the same as Thursday.

Maths   - introduced in the live lesson 

On Friday we will be calculating divisions with remainders.  

There is a story, read by Mrs McMurdo, called ‘Remainder of one’ which the children can listen to today as well. Here is where you can find it:


If you think that your child needs more practise with division without remainders first, here are a couple of websites you could look on: 

If you missed the live lesson, the narrated PowerPoint can be found here:

Think about how you know when something has finished or ended.  For example, how do you know when it is the end of the school day?  How do you know when a film has finished? Is it the same thing every time?  This week’s video shows how Shabbat ends. 

Watch the clip – Closing of Shabbat 

Imagine that you are a Jewish child, at the end of Shabbat. Write a few sentences to describe what happens, as if you were there. Add one sentence to describe how you feel about Shabbat.
