We are now practising to write letters in a cursive style. Look at the Cursive letter formation powerpoint and notice how each letter starts from the line. This will mean that you will probably be forming some letters in a completely new way.
Practise forming the letters j, k and l in a cursive style.
Complete 2 lines of correctly formed letters before moving to the next letter.
Remember that 'j' has a descender that should come below the line. The top part of the letter should come half way between the lines. The letter 'k' has an ascender that should touch the top line. The loop and short stick should fit in the lower half of the space. Make sure this is the right size otherwise it could look like an R. The letter 'l' also has an ascender, with the lower point sitting on the line.
Today we are going to do some problem solving related to multiplication and division. Look at the worksheet and solve the Monster problem. Remember to draw arrays or groups and write your number sentences.
Challenge: Try the 'Function machine worksheet' and see if you can deepen your understanding.
