You will find that a selection of tasks have been set for you. You can choose one to do each week, or more if you wish to. (Fractions)

It is always advisable to take the practice lesson before you attempt the task.

MyMaths will mark your work for you as soon as you are finished. If you have made any errors it will show the correct answer; this should help you realise where you went wrong. If you did not achieve 100% please try again – your perseverance is key to your success!

Home-learning – World Book Day

“World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading”

Today is World Book Day and while it’s a shame that it hasn’t fallen on a day which we’re all in school together, it doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate it at home.

Activities could include:

– dressing up as one of your favourite book characters. We would love to see photos of these, sent through to the class emails so we can share them with each other when we get back next week.

– having a look at the PowerPoint (attached below), with information about World Book Day and why we celebrate it. W B D was created by UNESCO in 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading and, as we are a Rights and Respecting School, it is important that we celebrate it.

– having a go at the quiz that we made (see Google Classroom).

– filling out the Book Scavenger Hunt (attached below). We would usually raid the library but you’ll have to see if you can hunt through your own books.

– designing your own book cover, either re-designing the book cover of a story you like or designing a book cover for your life (attached is a book template should you wish to use one).

– completing the World Book Day Top 5’s sheet (see template below). I think I would end up spending ages trying to decide my top 5 books!

– having a look for your own activities on the World Book Day website. They have loads of resources on there! – https://www.worldbookday.com/

– If you need some inspiration, think about some of the books we’ve all read in school. Some of the books we’ve read include: Once Upon an Ordinary School Day, The Day the Crayons Quit, The Twits, Stuck, The First Drawing, Stone Age Boy, How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth, and we started reading Stig of the Dump.

Home-learning – Thursday 4th March

Mathematics – Statistics – How do I gather data and create my own bar chart?

> This is the last Statistics lesson before the Assessment tomorrow and it’s a fun one!

> There is the usual PowerPoint, which we would use in our lesson, attached below.

> The PowerPoint has the Knowledge and Skills on and the input which describes what you will be learning.

> There are activities 1 and 2 at the end of the PowerPoint. Activity 1 is the main activity, where you will need your packet of Smarties (or something similar which can be grouped into different colours of flavours). There are instructions to follow on the slide. Activity 2 is an optional activity.

> We have also attached a link to the PowerPoint with a teacher talking through the slides, should you wish to use that for the input.

> You will still need to refer back to the other PowerPoint for the Activities.

> Below you can find some squared paper to print off should you need it. Squared paper definitely helps when drawing bar charts but if you have your own, even better.
