Tuesday 5th Jan
This half term we will be focusing on 'Multiplication and Division'.
This morning we would like you to look at: Efficient Multiplication
Watch the video first. You will need to keep pausing this to have a go at the tasks.
There are slides too (same as the video) if you need to look at this more slowly and carefully.
Then, complete the worksheet. Look at the questions on a screen and write your answers on paper. Remember, the later questions are normally problem solving and reasoning questions so give these your best shot. You may need a little bit of adult explanation for these.
In English today, we will be starting our new writing sequence all about BARN OWLS!
This will all lead up to writing a factual report all about Barn Owls.
We will begin the sequence like we always do, by developing and learning all of the vocabulary to do with our topic.
Today, we would like you to start to research these beautiful birds. Read the text that is below and find key vocabulary and key facts you think are important to know. You could make a list of the vocabulary as you read.
Then, using the facts sheet, label a picture of a barn owl with all of the information found. Underline the vocabulary you think is most important, the technical vocabulary (scientific words/words found in an information text/words linked to the topic- feather, facial-disc etc.)
Remember, you don't have to print! You could have a go at drawing a Barn Owl to label with the facts.
This week in PSHE we are starting our new topic - Money Matters, this topic aims to help you to understand money. we will be covering topics such as: :
L10 - Identify the role of voluntary and charity
L12 - Understanding different values and
L13 - Exploring how to manage money.
L13 - Explaining the importance of money in
people’s lives and how money is obtained.
L14 - Understanding the concepts of interest,
loan, debt and tax.
Today we would like you to brainstorm where you think money comes from.
As people grow up, how might their experience of money and what they do with it, change? Think about a child,
a teenager an adult and a pensioner. We would like you to create a mind map of how you might receive money and what you might do with it.
Next, look at the ideas you have created and sort them in to 'needs' or 'wants'. Think about what you really need to survive or is it just something you want?
If you want tot find out about the history of money, you can take a look at the website below.
History of Money (maths.org)
Do you think saving for things in the future is important? Write down your ideas.
