Good morning year four, hope you are all well.  Thanks for the Goblin characters they were great.  I have added extra Dojo points for creativity.

Your learning for today:


‘The Impossibly Possible Bookshop.’

Today we will be skimming and scanning a text for words that give us information about the setting.  You will be highlighting what Sammy can see and drawing a picture of it.  There is more information on the PowerPoint.  Then try p8 of your workbook on adverbs.


  1. Lata sings sweetly.
  2. He is always late for the class.
  3. The school bell rang loudly.
  4. We must eat our food slowly.
  5. The horse galloped fast.

The words in bold. All these words (slowly, sweetly, always, loudly, fast) tell something more about the way in which the action is being performed). Such words are known as Adverbs.

Extra challenge:  Try an activity on the adverbs sheet-there are three levels to choose from.

Multiples are really just extended times tables. The multiples of 2 are all the numbers in the 2 times table, such as 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and so on. Multiples of 2 always end with a 2, 4, 6, 8 or 0.
