Better Together

Wednesday, 3rd February

Welcome to Wednesday's learning tasks!

Spellings: Rule 22: cian or ssion suffixes

Use the powerpoint below to revise when to use the suffixes ‘cian’ or ‘ssion.’ Use examples from the last slide to practice spelling the words accurately, choosing the correct suffix. Don’t do all of them at once- 10 a day is plenty.

Reading:

With the book that you have been set to read for this week, you will need to create your own three questions about what you have read. See how tricky you can make them!

Quick Write: 3 ‘ed’ sentences

Use the powerpoint below. Can you write a sentence starting with 3 adjectives ending with ‘ed’ using the picture for inspiration? Remember, this is only a quick write therefore one sentence will be enough.

English: Create your own foodimal

Use the power point below (Foodimals lesson 1). Watch the trailer for “Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2” (slide 2). What is a ‘Foodimal?’ Go through the rest of the powerpoint which explains how the different foodimals have been created. Look carefully at how the names have been created. What do you notice?

Use these ideas as inspiration to create your own foodimal (have a look at Mrs Simon’s example below to help). Draw your foodimal and then write a description of it: what it looks like, what it eats, how it moves, where it lives , who are its friends/enemies, how it behaves. You could use the worksheets provided (creating my foodimal) or draw and write your work on paper/in your book.

Maths:

Hit the button

For fun times tables practise, go on the game 'hit the button'. Select the times tables that you have been working on and play the game. Can you beat your previous score?

 White Rose Maths

Note: this week there are separate lessons for year 4 and year 5 children.

Year 4: Tenths

Click on the link below to watch the video tutorial about tenths as fractions. You will be using a variety of pictorial representations (cubes, counters, shapes, bar model) and the part whole model and solving some problems. Use the diagrams provided, or draw your own to help you solve the problems.

Note to parents: children should be familiar with the part whole model, but this is explained clearly in the video.

Then, complete the worksheet below (Y4 Maths Wednesday). You could print it off and write on the worksheet, or write the answers on paper/exercise book, but remember to number your answers clearly so your parents can check you are correct.

Parents: I have also uploaded the answer sheet (Y4 MATHS ANSWERS) for you to refer to.

Year 5: Equivalent fractions

Click on the link below to watch the video tutorial to learn how to use bar models and fraction walls to find equivalent fractions. You will need to look carefully at the equivalent fractions you find and see if you can spot any patterns. Learn how to find any equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing the numerators and denominators.

Then, complete the worksheet below (Y5 Maths Wednesday). You could print it off and write on the worksheet, or write the answers on paper/exercise book, but remember to number your answers clearly so your parents can check you are correct.

Parents: I have also uploaded the answer sheet (Y5 MATHS ANSWERS) for you to refer to.

 

As it is Wednesday afternoon, we recommend that you enjoy some time away from devices. Perhaps plan for foodie Friday, do some baking, go for a walk or even complete some Just Dance challenges.
