**Literacy: **

**These activities should take around 50 minutes to 1 hour.**

Practise this week's spellings using colour trace. Just a reminder:

Write the word and go over it in a different colour

than, that, there's, these, thing, things, think, thought, three and through

Now that Spring is here (and we are all shut up inside), let's plan and write an acrostic poem. You can find examples of these on the internet.

Helpful site: https://www.kidzone.ws/poetry/acrostic.htm

Here's an example:

**Ice Cream**

**I** love every flavour.

**C**ookies & Cream.

**E**nglish Toffee.

**C**hocolate Chip.

**R**ocky Road.

**E**ven Strawberry and

**A**lmond Fudge.

**M**mmmmmmm.

Children in my class for Language and Literacy can write an acrostic poem about SPRING TIME. The Children who sit at the back of my class can include similes and alliteration.

Those children who go to RWInc. can write an acrostic poem about SPRING.

I look forward to reading these.

**Numeracy: This should take around 50 minutes**

Warm up: Practise your x3 & x6 tables. Remember if you can do your x3 then just double these answers for x6.

L.O: To use the column method to solve written problems.
