Good morning! Wow - we finally made it to July! Let's make this last month of the academic year a really positive one! What are your aims this month?

Here is a shoutout to Thay for his work yesterday. Well done to everyone who is continuing to produce excellent work, like Thay. CHALLENGE: How many adverbials can you spot in Thay's writing?

Here is your **Guided Reading** for today:

After reading chapters 22 and 23, here is your **English** for today:

Note: Year 6 punctuation includes colons, semi-colons, parenthesis (brackets, dashes or commas), hyphens and ellipses as well as your basic full stops, exclamation marks, capital letters, question marks and apostrophes correctly. Challenge yourself!

Here is your **Maths** for today:

Let's review the final 5 questions from Monday's Maoam Maths.

1) Multiplying decimals can be treated the same as multiplying by integers (whole numbers) if we multiply each decimal by 10 first. Instead of 4.6 x 3.2 we can multiply each number by 10 to become 46 x 32 and then use the column method as we would normally (as long as we remember to make them 100 times smaller at the end; Why 100 and not 10? Well, we've made the numbers 10 times bigger and then ten times bigger again, or a hundred times bigger in total). 46 x 32 = 1472 so 4.6 x 3.2 = 14.72

2) To add fractions, we need to make sure the denominators (bottom numbers) are the same. In this case, they are not so we need to find equivalent fractions first. ^{1/4 }is the same as ^{2/8} if both the numerator (top number) and denominator are doubled. For ^{7/8 }+ ^{2/8}, just add the numerators and keep the denominators: ^{9/8 }(1 ^{1/8})

3) A sphere has one face, no vertices and no edges... what a strange shape!

4) Freddie Factor is perfect here! 72 has 12 factors: 1 x 72; 2 x 36; 3 x 24; 4 x 18; 6 x 12; 8 x 9

5) A prime number is an integer that has only 2 factors: 1 and itself. The first four prime numbers are 2, 3, 5 and 7. 2 is the only even prime number as all the others are divisible by 2
