English - Friday

Building on from yesterday's activity, please write a range of expanded noun phrases to describe these settings. I have given you some ideas below so you know what sort of sentences to write. 

In the ocean, I can see a vibrant, delicate fish swimming around the reef.

I can also see a majestic, old turtle gliding through the water. 

Maths - Friday

The children would have access to a number line in school or a number square to help them calculate: For example: for 13 - 4, they would find 13 on the number line or number square and count backwards 4 places, or desirably, they would calculate mentally. For example, for 36 - 8, they would 'put 38 in their head' and count back 8 using their fingers.

You may use the following calculations to practise!

Please see above (Thursday's maths section) the number lines or number square if desired!
