Objective –  I can spot problems in arrays.


Today we are going to think about the rules when drawing arrays. For example, can an array have groups that are not all the same?

o o o o

o o o o

o o o  


Is that an array? The answer is no because the last row only has 3 circles in so all of the groups are not equal. When we look at or draw an array, it is important to check the rows and columns are in line and there are the same amount in each group.


Task – I want you to be a teacher and mark my arrays. Can you check that all my number sentences match the arrays and that all my arrays are correct? Any mistakes, please can you circle what is wrong and see if you can fix it for me. Thank you!

Challenge – Try the problem solving questions.


Objective – I can write a book review.  


You will be pleased to know that today we are going to read the final part of the story. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this story and it has encouraged you to go on your own imaginary adventure.

So Jake had his teddy and a fun day with his sister. He had so much fun with his sister he didn’t even realise he was meant to be looking for his teddy! Did you like that story? What was your favourite part? When we have finished a book, it’s always good to think about our likes and dislikes and if we would recommend it a friend or not – this is called a book review.


Task – I want you to complete a book review on the story you have just read. Below is an example of a book review so you know what they look like. Book reviews are useful because they can tell us whether we might like a book or not without reading it. Book reviews are shorter than books so they are helpful because they can explain if the book is good or not, who is in the book and the best part. From this, we can then decide if we want to read the book or not. When writing a book review there are a few things you need to include –

  • did you like this book and why
  • who is in the story (the characters)
  • what the story is about (try not to give the ending away but it is useful to say a bit about the story)
  • your favourite part of the story and why
  • if you think someone should read this story and why (for example, it’s funny, it’s interesting, it’s exciting, you can find out what happens, etc)



Today we are going to continue looking at words that have 'ore' in them. After you have worked through the power point you can either sort the words in the 'coach sort' activity (either verbally, or print and sort or write out and sort) or you might prefer the 'Strengthen your core' activity. For this task you need to read the 'ore' word and carry out the activity being shown on that picture card. You could print these out and your family could join in too or you could make your own cards.
