Number line game – Use some post-it notes to write down 10, random, 3-digit numbers.  If you don’t have post it notes you may cut out some paper.

Extra support group - Try this starter but with 2-digit numbers.


Once you have your 10 numbers, order them from lowest to highest. Use a stopwatch to time yourself. Make a note of your time, then write some new numbers down and try again.

Repeat this 7 times and circle your fastest time!


Do you think you were faster than your classmates? Why not send a photograph in of you and your quickest time? The winner will be announced on the school website, good luck.

L.I: Words ending in sure, as in measure.

L.I: To practice doubling consonants. (extra support).


Watch the video on BBC Bitesize.

Listen out for words that are pronounced with the 'ture' and 'sure' sounds.

Remember to look out for exceptions such as 'teacher'. If the root word ends with the 'ch' sound, the word ending is 'er'.


What words did you hear?

Can you make a list of these words?


Extra support - How and why do we double consonants?


The spelling rule is:

If the word has 1 syllable, 1 vowel and it ends in 1 consonant.. then you double the final consonant.


You do this before you add 'ing', 'ed', 'er', 'est'.


You don't double the consonant if the word ends in 'tion'.


For example, Sit = sitting.
