Maths - live on Teams at 9.30am

All children in Mulberry, no matter whose maths group you're in, should log into Mr Cooper's maths lesson for today.

Today, we're going to look at the column method of multiplication. For children normally in my group, this is new learning but for children in Mr Hayes and Miss Robertshaw's groups, today is more of a revision lesson. In the live lesson, I'll go through the formal compacted method. There are then some questions below for you to have a go at. Don't worry about setting it out the way I have on the worksheet - that's me being really picky for if we were in school, just try your best but remember to line up the digits to make it easier. I will also post a video below after the lesson to remind you again how to do it.   


Guided Reading - live on Teams at 10.30am

All children in Mulberry, including children in a phonics group, should log into Mr Cooper's Guided Reading lesson for today.

We're going to think about The Egyptian Cinderella again today. I've attached a PDF version of the story below which you can read to remind yourself of what has happened. In the Live Lesson, we'll go through a 'Connect' activity to think about similarities and differences between the traditional version and the Egyptian version. There are then 4 activities below which I'd like you to have a go at. 


In the love heart, what do you think the character was feeling at the end of the story?

In the thought bubble, what were they thinking at the end of the story?

In the speech bubble, what might that character say at the end of the story?


We're using our inference skills here which we've practiced loads this half term already! 


Writing - live on Teams at 1.30pm

We're going to continue our setting description. You all took home the beginning of your description yesterday and today I'd like you to finish that by thinking about what we saw, heard, smelt and what we could feel when we were inside the tomb. On the live lesson, we'll look at some more examples and think about fronted adverbials. There is then a short planning SPAG activity to do below and then I'd like you to finish writing your description.


​​​​​​​Your parents can send me a picture of the finished piece or you can bring it in on Monday but I'm really looking forward to seeing them!


Adventure - no live lesson (complete at some point)

I know I promised you we'd get the paints out today - we'll do that part next week when we're back in school! Today, I'd like you to choose some of the symbols below which you might find in a tomb and have a go at sketching some of them. Remember the sketching skills we learnt back in 'The Firework-Maker's Daughter' adventure and have a go at creating me a bit of a mood board of different things you'd find in a tomb.


As I walked in, there was a spooky, black elevator in the black wall of the room. The light  shone onto the great golden box in the centre of the room.


Through the door, I could hear the wind howling .


I could smell the dead body of an Egyptian pharaoh. The smell wafted through my nostrils and made me feel sick.


As I was walking through the door, I felt the glimmering, shiny walls which felt rough and freezing cold.

Read Aloud- Egyptian Cinderella by Shirley Climo | International Fairy Tale

Read Aloud- Egyptian Cinderella by Shirley ClimoWould be a great book to compare and contrast with the classic American Cinderella story!
