Spelling:

This week, we are going to be learning words with the suffix -sion. A suffix is a group of letters added to the end of a word to change its meaning.

Practise this week’s words using the look, cover, write, check technique. You can a grid like this out on a piece of paper:

Grammar:

Pronouns replace a noun in a sentence. For example:

Please hang your coat on your peg. Please hang it up on your peg.

Bob has a perfectly-groomed dog. He has a perfectly-groomed dog.

English – Reading:

This half term, we will be reading How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. Read the text and have a go at answering the questions underneath. I have put the text and questions both as a picture and a document. They are both the same but you can decide which is easier to view on your device.

  1. How long was the Sea dragon sleeping on the Ocean bed?
  2. Explain what the Sea dragon ate that made him sleep.
  3. Explain Sleep Coma in your own words.
  4. Why did the killer wave swim as fast as he could away from the dragon?
  5. Where did Hiccup keep Toothless?
  6. Why did Fishlegs gasp in astonishment?
  7. Explain in your own words what Toothless did when he woke up.
  8. Why did Hiccup blink a lot when the dragon gazed at him?  

Maths:

Times tables starter:

Today in maths, we are learning about unit and non-unit fractions. Watch the following video and have a go at the questions underneath on paper.

Unit and non-unit fractions

German:

Today we are thinking of the popular That’s not my… book series. 

Look at this sentence builder: 

Task 1: Using the sentence builder above, write at least 5 pairs of sentences. Remember capital letters for nouns, ist for is and sind for are

Example 1: Das ist nicht mein Hund. Der Schwanz ist zu kurz. (= That’s not my dog. The tail is too short.) 

Example 2: Das ist nicht meine Katze. Die Augen sind zu groß. (= That’s not my cat. The eyes are too big.)

Task 2: Draw a picture to show what each pair of sentences mean. (In Example 1, you’d draw a dog with a tail that is too short).

Don’t forget to post your learning on Seesaw from today. We look forward to seeing all your work!
