After learning different multiplication methods, we are now going to move onto division and the various ways that this can be done. We will look at visual methods of dividing and the bus stop method. We will use the skills that they have learnt in multiplication and also the times table facts that we already know to help us. Today during the in focus and let's learn that will be done in the live lesson, we will discuss different division terminology. Then you will independently work on your guided practice and workbook questions. Make sure you send me your work through the class email, remember there's a chance to get good work in the celebration assembly on Friday!

As I know you all enjoy visualisation lessons, today you will be drawing me an Iron Man meal. Based on what you know from the book so far, what do you think the Iron Man would eat and why? Remember, when we visualise something we like to think about our 5 senses. Think about what it would look like, smell like, taste like, feel like and what would it sound like when he is eating it and label your picture. How is this different to what we eat? During the live lesson, we will discuss what visualisation is and how we do it. Don't forget to send me your work, someone will get chosen for good work this week in each subject.

Handwriting and spelling. Continuing with prefixes, we will focus on the prefixes inter- and super-. Looking at the meaning of the prefix to help up, we will put the correct prefix with a word to create a new meaning of the word. We are then going to play a matching game before you will carry out the independent task of writing down the words in a sentence, ensuring it makes sense and is spelt correctly. Use the example videos below to help you. Make sure you send your work to the class email:
