Good morning everyone- I hope you’re all OK. Did anyone manage to write their own poem for the Leeds United challenge? If so, please can you try and email it to me so I can have a read.

Answers to yesterday’s maths learning:

Challenge:

Rosie has £300 in her bank account. Tommy has 100 times more than Rosie in his bank account.

How much more money does Tommy have than Rosie?

Tommy has £30,000. Tommy has £29,700 more than Rosie.

Today’s learning is multiplication.

Year 5 learning task

Year 6 learning task

Use this picture as a stimulus to write your own short story (under 200 words).

Read the poem by William Blake.

Complete the questions. Decide which level you want to have a go at: 1 star (easiest)to 3 star (hardest). The answers are available, so you can mark your own work afterwards.

Can you write some of your own questions for the poem?

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re all managing to stay as active as possible. Maybe you’ve been doing PE lessons with Joe Wicks or going for a walk. I’ve been enjoying Oti Mabuse’s dance classes on Youtube – it has really helped to motivate me and put me in a good mood!

Investigate

Are all multiples of 8 multiples of 4?  Yes

Are all multiples of 4 multiples of 8? No

Challenge:

Annie is double her sister’s age.

They are both older than 20 but younger than 50.

Their ages are both multiples of 7.

What are their ages?    Annie is 42 and her sister is 21

1.  Bowl used for cooking or holding food.
2. Bone/antler comb for personal grooming.
3. Gaming piece- possible made from whalebone. It would have been used in a board game as a counter.
4. Silver bracelets- the rings were mainly used as jewellery but some were used as a form of payment.

Today’s learning is multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.

Remember, if we’re multiplying by 10, 100 or 1000 the digits move to the left. If we’re dividing by 10, 100 or 1000 the digits move to the right.

Complete the fluency questions.

Challenge:

Rosie has £300 in her bank account. Tommy has 100 times more than Rosie in his bank account.

How much more money does Tommy have than Rosie?

Leeds United Primary Stars are setting youngsters a poetry challenge all about ambition. The website has all the information you need to have a go at writing your own poem. You can enter your poem and send it to plprimarystars@premierleague.com or share on Twitter @PLCommunities with the hashtag #PLPrimaryStars.

I’ve found some tutorials on You tube that show you different mindfulness doodles/drawings you can have a go at. When I had a go, it made me feel calm and relaxed. Here is the start of my doodling….

It’s Wednesday – we’re halfway through the week!

Here are the answers to yesterday’s maths learning for year 3 and year 4.

Maths:

Year 3 – find your addition and subtracting packs. Complete the “adding 3-digit and 2-digit numbers – with carrying” page. Remember to be careful where you place your numbers and the numbers you have carried over. Keep the ones under the ones column and tens under the tens column.

Year 4 – find your addition and subtraction packs. Complete the “Estimate answers speed challenge” page. Here are the allowable ranges for your answers:

Today’s reading task is all about Really Rare Runes. Remember, the answers are on the second page so don’t scroll down until you’ve answered them. There’s no need to print the sheet – just write your answers in your home learning book.

Science:

Which are better: disposable nappies or reusable nappies?

Have a look at the data from last week. Think about how many nappies a baby will use in their lifetime and they all go in the bin. Is that right?

Have a look at the statements on this sheet. The statements are for and against the use of disposable nappies. Sort them into two lists (you can either print them and cut them up or write them in two columns in your book).  Then, decide if you think babies should use disposable nappies or should all babies use reusable nappies?

Happy April Fools Day!

We are in the fourth month of 2020 already! Sing the months of the year song – https://youtu.be/JABPMyXTZcs

Maths – addition using part whole models

We use part whole models to help us represent number stories and calculations. From a part whole model, a ‘fact family’ can be created. These are calculations that are closely related and match the part whole model. There is an example below.

Look at the other part whole models, copy them into your home learning book and write the addition fact families to go with them.

Challenge : Draw your own part whole model and write the addition fact family to go with it.

Copy the questions below into your home learning book. Add sound buttons to the words that you need to sound out (your child should know what these are and there is an example below). Write yes or no to answer them.

Can a boat sail?

Would you scream if you saw a snake?

Has a frog got sharp claws?

Challenge : Think of some more yes/no questions of your own.

Topic – jokes!

It’s April Fools Day. Tell some jokes to your family. Here are some ideas or you could find/tell some of your own.

Good morning!

Keep going with reading, spellings and times tables every day.

There are some numbers missing from this part of the 100 square. Copy it and fill in the missing numbers.

Challenge :

Read a story book. Write three questions that you would like to ask one of the characters. Remember to use a capital letter, finger spaces and a question mark. For example –

Topic – History

We have been learning about chronology in the last few weeks, putting toys in chronological order. Look at the toys timeline we created last week. Talk about what the timeline shows using the words below.

Challenge : Choose 3 or 4 of your own toys. Put them in chronological order of when you got them.

## Reading at home

Posted on Monday 30 March 2020 by Mrs Latham

We have had a few emails asking what to do when children have finished reading their school reading books.

Any books you read at home will be fine; story books, comics, magazines, dictionaries, atlases, chapter books, recipes or lists. The children don’t need to be able to read every single word independently. You can read to them, take turns, look for words they can read and talk about the book.

There are also lots of e books on Twinkl for free, ranging from traditional tales to information texts – https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/literacy/reading/reading-ebooks

Hello- I hope you’ve all had a good weekend and you’re all ready for week 2 of home learning! I’ve started to learn a bit of Spanish using the Duolingo app, just for ten minutes a day- you should give it a go!

Year 5 and 6 maths task

Your learning today is factors.

• factor is a number that divides into another number exactly and without leaving a remainder.

• Most numbers have an even number of factors; however, a square number has an odd number of factors.

• prime number has only two factors – the number itself and 1.List the factors for the following numbers:18, 14, 16, 30, 25, 42, 48, 60

Are these statements true or false?

6 is a factor of 24                                   12 and 7 are factors of 72

3 is a factor of 27                                   1, 3 and 8 are factors of 48

8 is a factor of 54                                  2, 6 and 8 are factors of 42

Challenge:   ‘sweets in a box’ problem

Look at this picture and answer the inference questions.

Watch the videos and create a fact sheet about the Vikings and how they lived.  It would be great if you could take a photo and email it to me on nataliebeatson@spherefederation.org

Maths

Sing along with the counting in 3s song – https://youtu.be/V96IZWctZYA

Copy and compete the number patterns.

0, 2, 4, 6, …., 10, …., 14, …., ….

0, 5, …., 15, …., …., 30, …., ….

0, 10, 20, 30, …., …., …., 70, ….

Challenge : Make your own ‘Guess my number’.

Read the ‘Hide and Seek’ text and answer the questions in your home learning book.

You can also use the text as ‘reading fluency’. We do this every day at school, reading the same text each day. The aim is to develop fluency and expression when reading. Each day we would focus on a different aspect of the text eg vocabulary (what do the words mean), punctuation (taking note of commas, full stops) and tricky spellings. By the end of year 2, children are expected to be reading approximately 90 words per minute.

Topic : Geography

Watch and sing along with the continents song – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6DSMZ8b3LE

Write a list of all the continents. Remember that proper nouns begin with a capital letter (names of continents).

If you have a globe or atlas, you could try to find them on there too.
