From Mr Bashford and Mr Young 😊
Today you are going to complete your work on the anatomy (body structure)of the insect. Watch the clip from yesterday again listening carefully to the description of the creatures.
Read through the beetle description below and select a suitable word to fill the gaps.
Check your work using the answers below.
Can you identify any cohesive devices which are used in the description?
Watch the video clip below to remind you about cohesive devices.
Highlight any examples that you can see in the description. How do they help the reader?
Today you to are going to write the next paragraph which describes your alien creature's appearance for your factfile. It comes after the introduction paragraph which you wrote yesterday.
You will be using your ideas and designs from yesterday to help you to create your paragraph. Make sure that you have mentioned at least 6 features of the hexapod.
Look at the example below. It uses the idea of talking about hexapods in general then narrows down to discuss the selected creature. How else might we start our writing? Try to use some cohesive devices in your paragraph.
In maths this week you will be continuing to consolidate your understanding of number operations using written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You will be practising arithmetic questions. If you find any difficult have a look at the video clips at the bottom of the page to help you.
Complete the arithmetic challenges below.
You may want to start with the mild challenge or if you are feeling confident go straight on to the arithmetic challenges.
In the top corner of your propeller board, you will have a space to write your number.

Range 30-60: 42
Range 350-450: 375
Range 30-99: 64
Don’t forget to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.
Computing – Hour of Code
Explore NASA’s exciting new efforts to reach the Moon and then Mars. You can design your own animated mission patch, imagine your life as an Artemis astronaut on the Lunar Gateway, take control of robotic rovers, and even create your own lunar habitat.
Work your way through the collection of space-exploration coding lessons, You can tap into your artistic side in "Design a Mission Patch," get creative in "Tell Your Lunar Gateway Story," take control of robots in "Rover Relay," and imagine your home in space in "Design A Lunar Habitat."
All of these step-by-step lessons will help you learn about real-life NASA missions while strengthening your coding abilities. If you find these too tricky you can choose the Tynker Blocks version.
