Tuesday

Write your own description of the Gruffalo

Think about: 

  • the parts of his body- eyes, claws, teeth 
  • adjectives to describe what he looks like- brown fur, large eyes
  • adjectives to describe what he is like- scary, brave
  • how you would feel if you met him- scared, frightened, worried

 

Imagine you are trying to describe the Gruffalo to someone who has never seen it before. 

Remember to use capital letters and full stops. 

 

Here is how I would start: The Gruffalo is the most terrifying creature in the whole wood. He has thick brown tangled fur and two large pointy horns stick out from his head. 

Today we are looking at partitioning numbers up to 100. 

This means to split the number up in different ways. One of the first ways we will look at is to split the numbers into groups of 10. 

for example: 30 can be partitioned into 10 + 20 = 30, 20 + 10 = 30, 10 + 10 + 10 = 30

We can also partition 30 using groups of 5: 5 + 25 = 30, 15 + 15 = 30. 

 

Try some of the smaller two digit numbers first and then move on larger numbers if you want a challenge. 

Creative Task 

Write a postcard about your time in Lockdown. What have you enjoyed doing? How have you felt? Draw some pictures of some of your adventures as well as describing them. 

You could send this to someone if you wanted, or just write it for yourself to remind yourself of all the exciting things you have been up to.
