L.O: To gather information for persuasive writing

Tomorrow you are going to create a poster or leaflet to persuade someone to go to a farm. Look at the examples below, then write down some ideas of what you are going to include on your poster. Which activities will you have? Pony rides, feeding lambs, tractor rides etc What other attractions are on your farm? Cafe, farm shop , play area etc. What are the opening times of the farm? Have you any special offers to persuade people to come? For example, a second child gets in free or discounts for families. Plan a catchy heading for your poster and try to plan a rhetorical question, e.g "Are you ready to have some fun?" or "What are you waiting for?"

L.O: To solve subtraction word problems.

Complete the differentiated word problems involving subtraction. Choose either 1 ,2 or 3 star.


Look back at your self portrait from last week. Today, we are going to create our own self portrait in the style of Picasso. Watch the video clip of Picasso again and think about how he rearranged parts of the face in different places. (A bit like putting a jigsaw together with the pieces all jumbled up in the wrong places.)  You are now going to create a Picasso style self portrait. See the attached example below and draw 2 pictures of yourself. Don't make them exactly the same. (You could draw one of them from the side-a profile.) Put one on top of the other and cut them together out into 4 or 6 pieces. Then mix the pieces up to make 2 new self portraits in the style of Picasso! If you have got 2 photographs of yourself, try doing the same method with these. (Check with your grown up that it is okay to cut photographs up first.) Evaluate your work. What do you like about it? Why?


You could really mix it up and have one drawn self portrait and one photo of you and put these together and cut them into 4 or 6 pieces. Mix them up and stick them together, so that both self portraits are a mixture of drawing and photo.
