Dear Parents and Carers,
Hi! I hope you are all well, here is the home learning for this week.
I have endeavoured to provide tasks that do not need to be printed off in order to be completed. Your child could open the documents on the screen and then do the work straight into their Home Learning books (using the .pdf file) or opened on screen and completed (using the .doc files). Like before I have given explanations and put in examples. These are in red.
Take care and stay safe, Mrs Sims
‘Measuring Lines’ does exactly that! There are lines to measure. You will need a ruler and you will be measuring using cm and mm. There are two sheets.
‘Measuring Objects’ does exactly that too! Using a ruler, you will be measuring objects in your homes. There are two sheets.
There is an activity called ‘Problem Solving’. There are three sheets. (a) to (c). They get progressively harder. You can either do all three or choose one to do. They are based on work we have done in Maths this year and over the last few weeks. They are on halving, doubling and multiplying by 10.
- ‘Subtraction Tens and Units (no borrowing)’.
- ‘Subtraction Tens and Units (borrowing)’.
- ‘Subtraction Tens and Units (borrowing and no borrowing)’.
- ‘Subtraction Hundreds, Tens and Units’.
They have got explanations and examples on then. You can work progressively through them or do the one or two you feel confident with.
We have written letters in topic work this year. We are going to take another look at how to write an informal letter. This is a chatty letter that you would write to someone you know. Have a look at the sheet called ‘Example Letter’. It is a letter all about lockdown. Read it through a few times on your own or with a member of your family. Then answer the questions in the grids. There are two sheets-‘Questions on the Example Letter (a)’ and -‘Questions on the Example Letter (b)’. Do only one. (a) is easier than (b).
- Now plan your own letter from lockdown. You could be writing to a friend or family member that doesn’t live with you e.g. your nan or granddad.
- First use ‘Letter Plan (a)’ or ‘Letter Plan (b)’ to plan what you are going to write. (a) is easier than (b).
- Then use your plan to write your own letter in your Home Learning.
There is a task on adjectives (describing words). It is called ‘Recognising Adjectives’.
There are two sheets on question marks. They are called ‘Asking Questions’ and ‘When We Use Questions’. Carry out the ‘Asking Questions’ sheet first. This goes over how to start a question and what punctuation to use (capital letter and question mark). ‘When We Use Questions’ makes you think about what questions you would ask in different scenarios. Remember your punctuation!
This is a unique period of time in history and will be remembered for a long, long time. Interview your family and friends (on the phone/X Box/Play Station). Ask them how they feel about it.
- What are they doing to fill their time?
- Are they doing anything different now to before the lockdown?
- Does their day have a schedule?
Write down their thoughts and ideas in your Home Learning book. Each person could have a page each. You could keep adding to it and illustrate it too.
Welsh-Curriculum Cymreig (Proud to be Welsh!)
Last week you were thinking about being Welsh. Now design a new Welsh flag. Think about the following-
- Symbols linked to Wales
- Stripes? Stars? Shapes?
We have written acrostic poems in school. We did one on ‘Christmas’ and one on ‘Angel’…at Christmas time! Acrostic poems are poems that have the word written vertically down the side. The first letter of every line starts a new sentence/phrase.
The dragon is in the middle of the Welsh flag. Write an acrostic poem on a dragon. Use adjectives (describing words), interesting verbs (doing words), alliteration (words starting with the same letter) and similes (as…as... or …like…). You can decorate your poem once you have finished. Use the ‘Dragon’ sheet.
