I hope you are all feeling refreshed after a lovely weekend and ready for another week of learning
Maths knowledge organiser
The work that we are doing in Maths this week is an area we haven’t looked at for a little while, we know the skills (multiplying, dividing and partitioning) but we might need some reminding of key facts. If you are a little confused by any of our Let’s Learn explanations this week, then have a look at the knowledge organiser I’ve linked below.
You can create a free twinkl account using these details:
Step 1: Go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer
Step 2: Enter the code you have received, or CVDTWINKLHELPS if you have not yet been given a code
As well as the document above, this will give you access to lots of learning resources including powerpoints to explain different topics and lots of different activities, which could be used for extra practise. It also has lots of colouring activities, how to draw videos and wordsearches to keep you entertained.
Start with 10 minutes on TTRockstars.
Read through the pages below, you can answer the Guided Practice questions in your Home Learning Journal.
Then complete pages 129-130 in your workbook.
If you are struggling, think back to the work we did on decimals and place value. Our lessons on writing decimals as fractions and writing fractions as decimals will also be helpful.
Complete the story, using this story opener:
Lightning never strikes twice, does it?
That was the question that occupied their frightened minds as they crouched, huddling together, next the pile of dusty sacks in the base of the windmill…
Use these questions to help you plan your story:
Why are they thinking about that particular question at the beginning of the story starter? What meaning does the question have?
Who is it inside the windmill? Have they been inside the windmill before?
Is the windmill a good place to shelter from the storm?
What might happen next?
How might the characters inside the windmill be feeling?
Re-read a chapter of your book - pick out 10 words that you feel are powerful descriptive words and that you could use in your own writing. Record them in your journal.
If you are able to, follow this link to play some games to practise your -cious and -tious words.
If you cannot play online, your words to practise are below. Use your Home Learning Journal to practise the spellings: write the words, use the words in a sentence or even create your own spelling games. You might need to look up the meaning of some words as the week goes on.
