Good morning Class Four and happy Tuesday.
I hope you all had a good day yesterday and enjoyed getting back into your home learning routines. It was a beautiful day, I went out for a nice walk with Flash very early in the morning and then cycled to school for the day, it's so nice not using my car at the moment, I've only filled it up with diesel once since lockdown started!
I hope you all managed to get outside too and enjoy the beautiful weather alongside doing your learning tasks.
Have a great day - work hard, love Miss Olver x
It’s Tuesday today, which means Times Tables test day! All of the times tables tests and grids are available on the Maths Help section on the Class Four website. Go on there and find the one you need to work through today. Give yourself 5 minutes to complete the test. All the answers are also in the Maths Help section so you can mark it yourself once you are finished.
Today you are going to be continuing with your work on fractions from yesterday. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 5 website and find Summer Term Week 5, Lesson 2 which is called ‘Add Fractions’. Watch the video and work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work. I have also attached my workings for Questions 1 and 4 so you can see how I would show my workings as I convert to a fraction with a common denominator. This is how I have modelled it for you in class when we have done similar questions together.
If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a go at the addition and subtraction fraction pyramids below. There are 3 options:
Easiest – Task on Page 1, Answers on Page 2. The denominator is the same on each pyramid so you don’t need to worry about finding common denominators.
Middle – Task on Page 3, Answers on Page 4. Again, the denominator is the same on each pyramid, but there are less clues for each pyramid.
Hardest – Task on Page 5, Answers on Page 6. For these you will need to find common denominators to help you work out the missing fractions on the pyramids.
If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a go at the extension sheet below which has two problems on similar to the pink problems we often do at school. I’ve also included the answers so you can check your work.
Make sure you write an entry in your diary/journal at some point today.
In today’s session, I would like you to do your silent writing task.
If you have chosen to do the half term recount, here are some things you need to remember:
If you have chosen to do the newspaper report, here are some things you need to remember:
It is completely up to you whether you write your recount or report by hand in your book or on a computer. Don't rush your work today as you will have time to finish, check, edit and improve it tomorrow.
Mrs Soley has planned a fun art activity for you to do in today and tomorrow's topic sessions.
