Maths week beginning 18.10.21...
Today in maths we will continue to add using place value grids and column subtraction to add and subtract 2, 3 digit numbers. There are 3 challenges for you to choose from. Remember to use the strategies that you have been taught.
Today’s learning involves using the methods and strategies that we have learned to subtract a 3 digit number from a 3 digit number. It is important to remember that you may have to make more than one exchange e.g. both the tens and the hundreds.
There are 3 challenges to choose from.
Estimating Numbers is our challenge for today. It will involve finding near numbers to estimate an answer to a question. For example to find the near number we need to round the numbers to the nearest 10 so the near number of 53 would be 50 and the near number of 68 would be 70. Can you suggest what the near numbers of 172, 357 and 251 could be. Now let’s have a go at
estimating the answer to 127 + 302 using near numbers. 130 + 300 = 430.
Your turn use near numbers to estimate 369 + 121.
Look at the independent tasks and choose your challenge. It is important to remember that we don’t have to find the actual answer when estimating.
Today is all about checking our answers using the inverse e.g. if 200 + 300 = 500 then 500 – 300 = 200.
Will be explore checking our answers using whole part models, bar models and number lines. The following video https://vimeo.com/466583700 may help you. Have a go at completing the challenge of your choice.
Please complete the assessment task for the end of our addition and subtraction topic.
English Week Beginning 18.10.21
This week we will be continuing learning all about non-chronological reports.
Your task this week is to choose a different Stone Age animal to write a non-chronological report about.
Today is our research day.
You need to decide which animal you are going to write a report about. How about a smilodon, a mastodon or a cave bear?
DK Find out is a great website to use for research.
The smilodon sheet below gives you an idea about how you can record the information you find out. You can either use words or pictures to remind you of the facts you've found out.
The procoptodon factsheet (a giant Stone Age kangaroo) could help you if you're finding it hard to find information online.
Today we are going to write the introduction to our non-chronological mammoth report.
An introduction should introduce the subject of your report.
- Tell your reader that they were a type of animal that lived in the Stone Age .
- A brief description of what they looked like.
- If they were herbivores, omnivores or carnivores.
You could finish your introduction with an interesting fact which will make your reader want to read on.
Now have a go at writing your introduction.
We've written our introduction so today we are going to write the next section of our report is all about appearance.
Choose a subheading, Appearance or What procoptodon / smilodon / mastodon.... looked like.
You may have included some facts about what your animal looked like in your introduction, this section needs even more detail about their appearance.
Extra challenge: Can you include a sentence which includes the conjunction and a sentence which uses the conjunction although?
The next section of our report is all about the habitat in which procoptodon / smilodon / mastodon lived.
look back at the panda report and the polar bear report from Tuesday's lesson, they both have a section about habitat.
Choose a subheading, Where procoptodons / smilodons / mastodons lived or Habitat.
Extra Challenge: Use conjunctions to make your sentences more interesting. Remember, if all our sentences are simple sentences, with just one verb and a subject, our writing can get a little boring.
Today is all about your animal's diet.
Look at our example reports from earlier in the week. Both of them have a section on diet.
Choose your subheading for example Diet or What procoptodons / smilodons / mastodons ate.
Now write all about what your animal ate.
Extra challenge: Can you use some different sentence starters in this part of your report? Using different sentence starters keeps your writing fresh and interesting to read.
Interestingly... Incredibly.....Did you know..... In addition..... Surprisingly.....
Computing: This term we are learning how to stay safe on line. We are learning the acronym SMART. Each letter stands for a different aspect of staying safe online. This week we are working on the T, which stands for Tell. Watch the video and answer the questions raised.
Log on and practise your skills today. Don't forget to record your progress.
Autumn 1 - Homework activities grid
Choose 3 of the activities from the grid to complete before October half term. There are lots of activities linked to our Stone Age topic so you'll be sure to find some that you like the sound of.
Times Table Practise
Don't forget to practise your times tables!
Don't forget to read everyday and fill in your reading rocket each time you read.
