2. Think about yesterday’s zoom, if you need a recap of how to work through a word problem please look at the video link of Mrs Foster and work through some of her questions first.

3. There are a selection of word problem cards to work through. They are a mix of different difficulty levels so be careful which ones you choose to complete. Try 4. 

4. Have a go at writing your own multiplication problem, can you challenge your teacher to answer them on class dojo?

Another OTTER time, choose a book you hardly ever read and look through the pages to try and remember the story.

A good book

WALA- the features of China.

Colour the Great wall of China in red.

Mark the rivers with blue lines.

Count how many lakes you can see.

Can you find out about the Himalayas and where they cross into China? Highlight this on the map.

3. How long do you think it will take to travel from one side of China to the other – right across the country?  In a train? Or a car? Or by plane? (On the map the yellow arrows show you from where to where)
