Hello 2AB!

I hope that you are happy and healthy and that you are looking forward to returning to school.

In maths this week we are going to focus on converting measures.  We will start by looking at converting units of length, wight and capacity. This work involves you multiplying or dividing by multiples of ten. For example, 1metre = 100centimetres. To convert from metres to centimetres we multiply by 100 (5m = 500cm). When converting from cm to m, we divide (560com = 5.6m). To complete this work, think back to our work on multiplying and dividing by multiples of ten. Write down your place value headings and move the number to the left if multiplying or right if dividing. Look carefully at the top of the sheet for more advice. The end of the week looks at time. I have uploaded the Click and Safe booklets so that you can complete one set of questions from each booklet each week.

In English, we are going to continue looking at the story of Sherman and his flying machine. This week, the focus will be on how the machine works and we will be writing an explanation text. It is important that you look at the clip of Sherman starting up the flying machine very carefully and make clear notes which contain causal language. Grammar this week revises parenthesis (adding extra information to a sentence) and guided reading looks at the life of the aviatrix Amelia Earhart. Geography looks at what farming is, and science investigates reflection. There is also some PSHE on staying safe online and DT on design criteria. Thursday is World Book Day and I have included a few activities for you. Mr Rawlinson rapping The Gruffalo is a must! I hope that it all goes well.

Sending work in

I would be grateful if you could mark the maths using the answer booklet and if a parent or guardian could let us know in an email how the maths has gone for the week. The work in English can be completed on a work document or handwritten work can be scanned and then sent to school, if possible, each day. Finally, there are some spellings for you to learn.
