The reading and writing is linked to a Twinkl Original book called ‘The man who bought a mountain’. Over the next few weeks we will read the full story, plan then write a detailed diary entry for the main character Yash. It may be a good idea to make notes on the main events of the story as you take part in your daily reading lessons to support your planning.
Task 1 - Writing
If you have a printer, print off the glossary, otherwise, just get it up on your screen to have a look at. Think, what do you notice about the order of the words? Can you produce a mini glossary for these terms that will come up in Chapter 1 below? You will need to use a dictionary; www.oxfordlearnersedictionaries.com is a good one to try.
Deftly, repertoire, flourish, trudged, precariously and delicacies.
Now you’ve made your glossary, you can use it to help you understand the text in today’s reading lesson.
Task 1 - Reading
Watch and join in with ‘Daily Reading | The Man Who Bought a Mountain Part One | Twinkl Originals’ on YouTube. You will need something to record your answers on. (These will be answered by Hannah on the video so don’t need to be emailed to Mrs Booth and Mrs Naylor)
Task 2 - Reading
Watch and join in with ‘Daily Reading | The Man Who Bought a Mountain Part Two | Twinkl Originals’ on YouTube. You will need something to record your answers on. (These will be answered by Hannah on the video so don’t need to be emailed to Mrs Booth and Mrs Naylor)
Task 2 - Writing
Using ‘Diary Samples.doc’ if you have a printer, please print either Sample B or Sample C to highlight key words and phrases. Otherwise, with a pen and paper, make a list of words and phrases that you may be able to magpie for your diary entry. Also, look at the features of the diary entry. Identify the following on the sample that you chose to read: time connectives, writer’s voice, chronological (time) order, past tense, informal language and conjunctions.
Task 3 - Reading
Watch and join in with ‘Daily Reading | The Man Who Bought a Mountain Part Three | Twinkl Originals’ on YouTube. You will need something to record your answers on. (These will be answered by Hannah on the video so don’t need to be emailed to Mrs Booth and Mrs Naylor)
Task 3 - Writing
Work through the ‘Diary Writing Powerpoint’ stopping at page 12.

The worksheet linked to this video is downloaded below along with the answers. For those children who have been using the formal written method in class we would like you to watch Lesson 2 - Multiplying 4 digits by 2 digits and complete the worksheets on White Rose (Monday Maths Formal Method below).
To continue your work on multiplication please watch the YouTube clip
Then select and complete either the HTO x O or HTO by TO worksheet below (see how confident you feel). For those children using the Formal Written Method for multiplication please work though the powerpoint below entitled 'Tuesday Formal Written Method Mastery.'

Those children who have been working on Formal Written Methods for Multiplication need to use 'Wednesday Formal Written Methods division link instead and complete the questions within the powerpoint.
Your weekly spellings can be found below. If you can't remember which group you are in please email and ask us. The website below is a good place to practise your spellings along with using Spelling Beats.
In addition we would like you to complete the two activities below. One activity requires you to correct the spellings in a piece of writing. The second activity asks you to improve a sentence you are given. Our writing group will have seen these before. It would be great if you could email us a copy of your improved sentence when you have finished.
There are two STEM activities below for you to try.
Fun with Flight involves you creating your own paper aeroplanes and seeing how far they fly. The YouTube clip below shows how to make five different types of paper aeroplane to get you started.
The second activity is called 'Who would live in a house like this?' We would like you to design a creature who might live in the boot of your car or the bottom of your school bag or maybe your imaginary creature lives on the mountain featured in the story 'The Man Who Bought a Mountain'. Think about how they would be adapted for the environment in which they are living. What do they eat? What do they look like? We are looking forward to seeing your ideas.
Each week we receive updates from 'Forestry England' and they always offer a variety of different activities for children. We have chosen a few of those activities for you to try below. You don't need to do them all, pick and choose those which interest you most.
You may have spotted birds carrying twigs and other materials to build their nests this spring, in preparation for laying and incubating their precious eggs.
Now it's your turn to have a go at building your own bird's nest!
Blackbirds sit on their eggs for 13 to 14 days, keeping them warm before the chicks hatch. How long can you sit still? 14 seconds, 14 minutes... 14 days?
Make sure to take a picture of your finished piece and share with us.
