9-9.30: PE with Joe.
Lesson 1: Literacy
Today we are going to learn how to use a thesaurus. Sometimes you might want to find a different way of saying something.
A thesaurus can help you with this.
Click on the image to watch this short clip to see how.
Show how well you understood the video above by completing this activity.
You need to fill in the gaps in the sentences.
Click on the image to watch this video about baby animals in spring and complete the activity below.
Each sentence below is about the video.
Write the sentences down, adding a word into the missing gap so the sentence makes sense.
Now, use a thesaurus to find a synonym for each of your underlined words. If you don't have a thesaurus at home, there are lots online - just search for one to help you on KidRex (a safe search engine for children).
Write the word in a different colour above or below your original word.
For example: The birds sang nicely.
The birds sang beautifully.

Lesson 2: Geography
Riddle: What runs, but never walks, often murmurs – never talks, has a bed but never sleeps, has a mouth but never eats? (The answer will be revealed at the end of the day...)
Lesson 3: Numeracy
Find the answer:
1. 3 x 8 =
2. 2 less than 98
3. 2 more than 54
4. 720, , 740, 750
5. 12 x 8 =
Circle the correct answer.
1. 8 x 4 =
a). 54 b). 32 c). 24 d). 48
2. 230 - 20 =
a). 210 b). 10 c). 200 d). 190
3. x 4 = 24
a). 4 b). 8 c). 6 d). 7
4. 16 ÷ 4 = 3r
a). 4 b). 0 c). 2 d). 1
Here’s an example:
Now have a go at these questions using a number line:
1) 226 + 15 = 4) 249 + 33 =
2) 389 + 14 = 5) 146 + 47 =
3) 312 + 29 = 6) 658 + 15 =
