Reading Activities - The Tales of Beedle the Bard. This week I will be reading a collection of Fairy Tales from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. They have been written by J.K.Rowling and consist of 5 Short Fairy Tales. Today's Tale is called 'The Wizard and the Hopping Pot'. Each story has a moral or meaning behind it and after each one, there are a collection of notes written by Albus Dumbledore (Headmaster of Hogwarts) that provide a little bit of history and meaning behind each tale. Please tick the box to prove you have listened to the tales.

Maths Activity - MNP Volume Lesson 6 - For this lesson, we are converting units of volume. In particular, this lesson focuses on converting millilitres (ml) into litres (l) by multiplying and dividing by 1000. There are different ways of doing this that we have looked at but the main one was moving the digits 3 decimal places to the left (multiplying) or right (dividing). For the activity, you will have to total the measurements before converting into the specified answer. It may ask for litres, litres and millilitres, just millilitres, or even as for answers as a fraction. 1000 ml = 1 litre
