Writing:

Look at this picture of the ‘Train Graveyard’ in Bolivia.

Plan and write a story about how these trains got here. What happened to them? Remember to include a wide range of punctuation. Feel free to send me it so I can see how you have done with your punctuation.

Maths:

Today I want you to recap your knowledge of the four operations (add, subtract, multiply and divide). Write out a selection of sums for each operation ensure that your numbers get more difficult and that some of them include decimals. Also, try some long multiplication and long division questions. If you need a reminder of any other the methods, send me an e-mail.

PHSE:

Last week, we look at how important food choices are in order to stay healthy.

First, have a look at these statements and decide if you think they are true or false.

• Look at the palm of your hand. Your body needs only the size of your palm of protein (meat, fish, etc) every day to get all of the necessary nutrients.
• If you ate lots of fruit yesterday, you don’t need to worry about eating any today.
• Potatoes are a good source of carbohydrate.
• It is a good idea to skip breakfast.
• Vegetarians are healthier than people who eat meat and fish.
• Milk, yogurts, cheese and other dairy foods are important for growth and help to form strong bones and teeth.
• Chocolate and sweets should be banned.
• Children need to eat the same amount as adults.
• Beans and lentils fit into two areas of the Eat Well Plate: protein AND fruits/vegetables.
• These foods are high in salt so we don’t need to eat much of them: bacon, cheese, salami, soy sauce, olives and ham.

This week, we are going to look at ways that we can keep our mind healthy.
