Task 1 - Write all of the words in alphabetical order.

Task 2 - Put each of your eight chosen spellings into sentences.

Task 3 - Write each word out ten times.  Each time you write it, you a different colour.

Maths

To find the factors of a number, you have to find all the pairs of numbers that multiply together to give that number.

The factors of 48 are:

1 and 48

2 and 24

3 and 16

4 and 12

6 and 8

If we leave out the number we started with, 48, and add all the other factors, we get 76:

1+2+3+4+6+8+12+16+24=76

So .... 48 is called an abundant number because it is less than the sum of its factors (without itself). (48 is less than 76.)

How many abundant numbers can you find?

Emotional Well-Being

On Monday, the children at school created a video for the song 'Who put the colours in the rainbow?' as rainbows are a symbol of hope.  You can see our video on the first page of the website.

Hopefully it will be a bright sunny day.  If not, save this lesson for another day.  Set something up outside - something tall is ideal (like a rounders post) - in the morning.  If you have a measuring tape or stick, measure the shadow created from your object every hour.  If you don't have anything to measure with, make observations about what is happening to the shadow every hour.

Look at the powerpoint about shadows.  Write a poem about the shadow you have measured/observed today.
