Year 4 week ending 1.2.19

Year 4 week ending 18th January 2019

This week we have been learning to:

Numeracy – we have been reinforcing the four times tables - all children have made wonderful progress with this.

Literacy – we have written a letter from David to his mother and starting analysing newspaper reports.

Humanities - we have focused on the music from the 1940's this week, listening and evaluating songs such as "White Cliffs of Dover" and "In the Mood".

Science - we have been learning about what the job of food nutrients do in our body, for example we get energy from carbohydrates and protein helps us grow and repair.


How you can help at home:


Numeracy –  the following link shows you the method we have been using in school.  The only difference is instead of a pizza, we used a chocolate bar by drawing boxes.  For example, 23 divided by 3, we would draw three boxes rather than the three pieces of pizza on the video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06BswhxnO7w

Use the method to answer the following questions in your homework books.

1. 42 divided by 3

2. 66 divided by 4

3. 73 divided by 5

4. 95 divided by 6

5. 94 divided by 5

6. 69 divided by 3

7. 71 divided by 4

8. 110 divided by 6

Year 3 Homweork

Dosbarth Mr Green

Week Commencing 14/1/19

 

 

Literacy: Learn the spellings that will be written in Homework books by finding their meanings if necessary and writing them in a sentence.  Your child will be tested a week  Friday.

 

 

 

Numeracy: This week we have been looking at the expanded method of subtraction including carrying over.

 

                                                                                                                Example:  73 – 28

 

                                                                                                                                            70          3  

                                                                                                                                    -      20          8                     So you can’t take 8 from 3.

 


                                                                                                                                            

                                                                                                                                    60    13

-          20       8

                                                                                                                                                                                                 So give a 10 from the 70 to the 3 and that would leave 60    13.

                                                                                                                                    40       5                                                 Take 8 from 13 then 20 from 60.

                                                                                                                               

                                                                                                                                                                                           Add 40 and 5 = 45

 

 

 

Please practise X4 and x6

 

Humanities: Please could your children start to research what Anderson shelters were. For a project they can design and make a model version of an  Anderson shelter over the next few weeks. You can use cardboard, recycled plastic, clay, wood, etc. Whatever you have available. It would be big enough for Lego characters to fit inside.

 

 

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Year 6 Home Learning w.e. 25.1.19

This week we have been
Literacy - using feelings, thoughts and emotions in descriptive paragraphs
Numeracy - focusing on 7x tables/drawing pie charts
Science - food groups and healthy eating

Activities to try at home
Literacy - imagine you were given a diary for your birthday - write your first diary entry showing your thoughts and feelings.  Try and make it as descriptive as possible.  

Numeracy - learn your 7 times tables.  Use top marks hit the button, mymaths games or other activities on the internet.  I have set mymaths working with mixed tables.  Next week we are going to revisit 8x tables.  As a class we have been discussing the importance of knowing our tables, being able to recall them quickly and how they are so important in maths (as we discovered when working out our piecharts)  

Science - keep an activity diary this week - how active are you at home throughout the week.  I'm looking forward to see your food diaries next week.  As you complete them create a key to show which food groups the food in your diary belong to - which type of food do you eat the most?

Have a lovely weekend

This week we have been

Adding numbers by partitioning
Construction bar charts and pictograms

Using achos jn Welsh to give reasons
Creating animal print silhouettes
Finding facts out about the environment
Writing as if we were and endangered animal
Yoga

We also got to meet our Snow leopard which the children decided to call Snowy.

We will be continuing with our Big write stories on Monday so please ensure any homework for it is back in school. They are looking excellent so far!

Practice adding and subtracting numbers by partitioning the tens and units
E.g.
52 + 35
50 + 30= 80
2+5= 7
80+7= 87

Move to bigger numbers if confident

Also 2/5/10 xtable should be rapid and confident. If confident with these move onto 4 x table. We will be looking more at these over next few weeks.

Our role play area is currently an airport where children can go to various countries to help the endangered animals. If you have any resources we could borrow that would help enhance this area then we would be grateful!

Have a lovely weekend

Year 5 week ending 25th January 2019

 

This week we have been learning:

Literacy – we have been considering evacuation from London from different character’s perspective, and writing our reaction to the declaration of WWII

Numeracy – this week we have been reviewing our place value, and practising rounding to 1 and 2 decimal places

We’ve continued with our Humanities, locating countries involved in WWII on a world map, and started looking at Healthy Lifestyles in Science, which we will later link to work on rationing.

 

Have a go at home:

 

Numeracy – practise times tables using j2blast on Hwb, Hit the Button, Flash tables online etc. – remember we are aiming to be able to answer any multiplication up to 12 x 12 in 3 seconds, and also to know the related division facts ie. 3 x 4 = 12

                                                                                        4 x 3 = 12

                                                                                      12 ÷ 3 =  4

                                                                  12 ÷ 4 =  3

                                                    

 

Humanities – continue working on your presentation on Hwb. You will need to prepare a presentation lasting around 10 minutes on your chosen topic.

 

Spellings – remember to practice your spellings using Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check.

Find out the definition for any words you don’t know, and try putting them into a sentence.

Year 4 Home Learning-Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips W/E 25.1.19

Maths-

Recall of x4 tables

Problem solving

Literacy-

Correct use of to, too and two in written work

Writing a response to a letter

Science-

What food groups make up our meals

At home-

Keep practising the recall of timetables when possible, in particular x4. Have a look at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables

Try some of these problems-

Put in the missing symbols to make these number sentences correct.


Use 
+,−,×,÷ and = .

For example:

2 ? 3=6 is 2x3=6 and 3 ? 5-2 is 3=5-2

Try- 16 ? 18=34

47 ? 28 =19

18 ? 2=9

30? 10 x3 


Science-

Have a look at some of your meals over the week and see what food groups they contain. You could make a list and bring it in to share with us all. What meal contains the most groups?

Next week we will begin to look at the nutritional value of different food groups, could they please bring in a packet/tin of food so we can have a look at food labels. (For Thursday please)

Don't forget to choose something from the WW2 list to carry on with.

Many thanks for your support, have a great weekend.

Homework Dosbarth Mr Green

Dosbarth Mr Green

Week Commencing 14/1/19

 

 

Literacy: Learn the spellings that will be written in Homework books by finding their meanings if necessary and writing them in a sentence.  Your child will be tested a week  Friday.

 

 

 

Numeracy: This week we have been looking at placing three digit numbers on a number line. This could be from 100 – 200, 100 – 600, etc.

When placing 173 on a number line between 100 and 200 look for the halfway mark which is 150 in this case and estimate how far after.

There are no MyMaths activities for this sorry.

 

 

Please practise x5 & x10 tables

 

 

Humanities: Please find out about what countries were involved in WW2. Who were the Allies and who were ‘The Axes of evil’?

 

 

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Year one week commencing 28.01.18

As a reminder, please could you research a country that your child has a connection with and collect some interesting facts.  This is for their big write on Friday. (25/01/19)

The connection could range from: A country they have been on holiday; family members live or work there or even just a country they want to visit.

 

Some ideas for facts:

·         Food and clothing from that country

·         Famous buildings

·         National song/flag

·         Native animals

(As a challenge the children will be asked to make comparisons with Wales so it would be great if you researched the same facts for both countries.)

 

Next week’s big write will be writing a poem on their topic. (Our world/Environment)

 

The children will be coming home with a poetry patrol sheet. Could you please help the child fill in the planning section. I recommend that the child plans a sense poem however, if your child has a strong preference they can use another style.

 

Some ideas for poems:

Worms. (They will be building a wormery in class)

Rubbish/recycling

Country connections

Animal poem.

 

Thank you for your support.

 

Kind regards,

 

The year 1 team.
