We start today's maths lesson with your Personal Targets books.  I am hoping that lots of you will be ready to move up a Level when we return to school.  You may do extra tests if you wish in your Personal Targets books.


Then it is Wednesday, so it is Ninja Maths. You need to do Week 4, Session 3 from your booklets.  Answers are on the document below, as well as the belt levels.

These questions are based on chapter 8 and some of chapter 9.  I have put page numbers in case you need to re-read pages.  


1. On p101 Lily says her parents were "lost to their thoughts".  What does she mean by this?

2.  What do you predict happened to the baby that learn about on p104?

3. How does Lily feel about her parents keeping secrets from her? (p104-105)  Use evidence from the text in your answer but also explain in your own words.

4. Why do you think Tulip avoids going to school? (p111)


5.  Longer question needing a paragraph if at least 12 lines in our book - What have we learned about Tulip so far in the book?


You need to talk about:  her family, her interests, her school, her appearance and heritage, what she is like as a person and how she treats her family and Lil.
