Then, use a dictionary (a paper, book type or use a suitable search engine) and find out the meanings of the unknown words.
Type this link into your search engine in order to read the text.
English - Monday 11th January
Have a really good think and write down what you think Liam's Dad thinks about his son (Liam). These will be your first thoughts.
Listen (on Class Dojo) as I read Chapter 6 of Cosmic.
Can you add any extra information to your first thoughts.
I am looking for explicit and implicit innformation here. What does Mr Digby (Liam's Dad) really think of his son?
Maths - Monday 11th January
Maths for today is Dividing by 10/100/1000.
Start off by watching this video:
Watch the video really carefully and pause it as many times as you need to so that you really understand today's learning.
Then have a go at the activity. I will also upload the answers here so that you can mark your own work before sending it in to me.
P.E. Monday 11th January
If you can, join Joe Wicks at 9.30am on his You Tube channel for a morning workout.
If you cannot join Joe, then I would like you to design 10 P.E. activities that you can time. Keeping a football up, throwing a tennis ball in the air and clapping and seeing how many of these you can do in one minute.
Record your scores and then on Wednesday, I would like you to try and beat your score.
Topic - Monday 11th January
We are going to look at the history of Space Travel in our Topic work.
First of all, have a look at the PowerPoint that I have uploaded below.
Then, using the fact cards, I would like you to design and illustrate your own History of Space Time Line.
This piece of work is intended to last for 2 Topic sessions, so don't rush it - Take your time, make sure you have got the chronology correct and really add carefully drawn details.
I'm really looking forward to seeing these amazing timelines.
Topic - Space Travel Timeline PowerPoint
Here's the PowerPoint for today's topic work as a PDF. I'm aware that some phones and tablets can't access the original PowerPoint. Hopefully you will all be able to access this one.

Think about this question: What do your parents do if they are worried or concerned about you? How do they let you know? What do they say?
On pieces of paper or Post It notes if you have some, write down what Liam's Dad might be concerned about.
You might need to listen to some of the chapters from Cosmic again to really understand what Dad is concerned about.
