Good morning everyone.  I hope your week is going OK.  It is so great to see you all logging on and trying your best with our daily tasks. Well done!

As we continue to have Teams assignment problems , I will do the same as yesterday and post here and in Teams.

grammar – compound words – see video

compound word video and quiz

mental maths – number of the day – Our number of the day is 57. Use the number sheet to write down all the things you know about it.  You could put the sheet in a polypocket and write on top so we can use it again or if you’re very fancy you might have a laminator! We have used this in class before.

maths – add and subtract 10 game – remember only the tens digit will change – watch out for the sign – + or – ?
