Write a non-chronological report
I have set this as a to-do on Purple Mash. This will essentially be your hot write for this unit. I know that you will be disappointed that you missed the lesson on creating your own sea creature to write about. So, your writing today can either be about Pandas, like you've been studying this week, or your own sea creature (template below). Ensure that you plan before you write and hand in your work!
|Multiplying decimals||Find, or create, some geometric art inspired by Mosque tiles and submit your website|

Here is our homework takeaway menu for this half term. Mains are tasks that children should be completing weekly.
Starters and sides can be completed at your child's leisure. Starters recap prior learned knowledge, and sides give children the opportunity to start learning about our future topics. Some of these tasks can be completed using Purple Mash's 2Publish software, which can be found on the tools menu of the site.
