Today’s learning – 22.10.20

English – grammar focus:

Watch the video linked to prepositions on MC grammar:

https://www.theteachertrain.com/mc-grammar

Have a read through the following powerpoint then attempt the tasks attached:

Maths: we are having an arithmetic focus today on missing numbers using shapes and images to support our understanding.

Take a look at this one – how will I find out the missing value?

I would do the inverse: 5 + 45 = 50 therefore 50 must be represented by the circle. How about this one?

Well I know two lots of circle = 400 therefore I need to divide 400 by 2 to get the value of the circle which is 200.

In the second one, I know my circle value is 200 and I have two lots of that value so 400 + ____ = 900. This time – again – I need to do the inverse so I will subtract 400 from 900 therefore my square must be 500.

Using my knowledge of the above two steps, I know a square is equal to the value of 500 and each circle is equal to the value of 200 therefore my number sentence is 500 + 500 + 200 + 1200

Use the above strategies to work your way through the attached questions:

Today’s learning – 19/10/20

English:

Today we are practising our reading skills in our English session. Read the attached text and answer the questions – post your work on Seesaw:

Spellings:

This week our spelling words are the following: Rhyme occupy apply hyphen hygiene python supply identify multiply recycle desperate  determined. What do they mean? Research them and find the definitions.

Maths:

We are starting to look at fractions, decimals and percentages. Watch the below video to find out more about how they are related:

Complete the attached sheet and post on Seesaw:

Percent means out of 100. The attached sheet requires you to identify the percentage of the squares covered. The first one has been done for you:

We are also looking at how fractions and decimals are related.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/maths-ks2-decimal-dance-off-2-fractions-decimals-and-percentages/zk9ygwx

Have a go at the attached sheet converting between a decimal and fraction.

Help: if a decimal is to 1 decimal place, the denominator is out of 10. If the decimal is to 1 decimal place, the denominator is out of 100.

Each sheet gets progressively harder. Try the first 6 on page 1. Confident and got them correct? Move on to do sheet 2. If you are struggling with sheet 2, stick to sheet 1.
