We start the day with 20 minutes of mental maths on Numbots.  The levels increase on Numbots as you have correct answers.  Last week we were looking to move up levels and this is what happened:-


56% of you played an average of 21 games, for 9 minutes on average.  Let's see if we can get that higher today, as next week our focus will definitely be TTRS because there is a DSAT competition that we need to win!

If you are able to get onto letterjoin, there is a dictation exercise to listen to and write down.  Pause it as often as you need to, to write it down, but try and write more quickly but still neatly.

This is "Spr6.7.3 - Calculate with metric measures" by White Rose Maths on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

Finish off with a test from your Personal Targets booklet.  If you have 100% accurate in one section, go on to a harder section.

Art - Draw Your Monster

Time to start thinking about your monster for your Monsterology extract.  Think about your monster's powers, likes, dislikes and habitats.  How will that affect what they look like?  A water-dwelling monster ight have scales/fins/tail/a net for catching prey.   


Focus on its appearance and then draw it, annotating your drawing.  Then we can have a Monsterology gallery on the blog.
