Maths

This week the focus of maths is multiplication and division. We would like you to spend no more than 30 minutes on each activity. Please work in the book provided by school. There is a worksheet for each day attached underneath the Maths worksheets heading. To support your maths, we have also attached ongoing activities that you can use as and when you see fit. 

 

Day 1- Multiplication

Day 2- Short division 

Day 3- Long division 

Day 4- Mixed multiplication and division

Day 5- Multiplication and division problems 

Reading

We would like you to read 5 times a week for at least ten minutes each time that you read. We would also like you to complete the following activities:

 

Day 1: Complete the comprehension task about Greta Thunberg. Write your answers into your home learning book.

 

Day 2: If you are reading a fiction book, write a summary about what you have read so far. If you are reading a non-fiction book, select a page or two to summarise in your own words.

Challenge: Can you summarise the story in just 100 words?

 

Day 3: Think of a character in your current book or your favourite character from any book you have read before. Write down 5 questions you would want to ask them. Then have a go at writing their response to each question, thinking about what they might want to say.

 

Day 4: Select 10 interesting words from a book that you are reading. Can you use each of them in a sentence of your own?

Challenge: Make your sentence impress the people at home with your wonderful use of sentence structure and punctuation.

 

Day 5: We would like you to choose a section of a book you have been reading and turn it into a cartoon strip. Perhaps you could take one chapter, the introduction or summarise the whole story.

Writing/SPAG

Day 1: Spelling- Look at the new list of words for this week. Find out the meaning of each word and use it correctly in your own sentences. Don't forget to practise your spellings every day using the ideas from the sheet in your home learning book. On Friday, ask an adult to test you :) 

 

Day 2: Things are a little different for us all at the moment! Reflect on the last week and think about what has been different, what has been the same and how you have felt. Write a diary entry to explain what you have been doing and how life has changed recently.

 

Day 3: Complete the relative clauses grammar sheet in your home learning book. 

 

Day 4: After nearly 2 weeks at home, we are sure there will be lots of people you are missing seeing. Today we would like you to write letter to one of those people. Let them know how are you are, tell them how you are keeping busy and maybe find a way to cheer them up. If you can’t get out to post the letter, maybe you could write an email.

 

Day 5: Today we would like you to complete the sheet to remind yourselves about how to use fronted adverbials

Write a list of arguments for and against using renewable energy sources (e.g. water and solar energy). Think about how easy it would be to use these as sources of energy in your own home. Use the information sheets to help you too.  

 

RE- Think about people who you admire. Why do you admire them? How do they link to your life or your aspirations? What questions would you ask them if you could? Your task is to write a letter to a person of your choice who you admire, letting them know why you admire them and what qualities and skills they have that you look up to.
