Today’s reading task focuses on inferring characters feelings and deduction (drawing conclusions based on the information in the text). Please read the text attached and then complete the questions. Please don’t worry about printing the worksheet, you can write your answers on a piece of paper.

Times Tables

Draw a multiplication flower. Choose a times table you find particularly hard and draw a flower to help you learn it! 

 

Times Table Tennis

A fun game of speed! You serve the imaginary ball by asking your child a tables question; your child returns it by answering as fast as they can. If they are correct, ask another tables question, keeping the rally going until they get one wrong or get to a target you have set in advance. See how long they can keep the rally going!
