Hello 2AB!

I hope that you are happy and healthy and that you are enjoying your studies. I continue to be impressed by the quality of work that you are sending in. Very well done!

In maths this week we are going to start by looking at the relationship between decimals and fractions. With a decimal, we split the number one into equal parts. If we split the number one into ten equal parts we have tenths, one hundred equal parts and we have hundredths, one thousand equal parts and, you've guessed it, we have thousandths. A fraction is similar. We have our whole (this could be anything eg pizza, cake, box of pencils, children in a class). This whole or one is split into equal parts. If it is split into two equal parts, we have halves, three equal parts, we have thirds and so on. The number at the top (numerator) tells you how many parts you have. The number at the bottom (denominator) tells you how many parts your whole is split in to. So in 3/4 our whole is split into 4 parts and we have 3 of them.  We then go on to have a look at equivalent fractions, before focussing on mixed numbers, ordering decimals and then finally adding/subtracting and multiplying.  In addition, 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 diary recounts, taking inspiration from a short film about a young boy who spends the day with his grandfather. Grammar this week focuses on punctuating speech and guided reading continues to look at Bill's new frock. In PSHE we consider good and bad secrets, art takes inspiration from Frida Kahlo to produce more portrait work and science investigates the uses of magnets. Finally there is work on the family in Spanish.

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 me 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 me, if possible each day. I am teaching in the morning and will be able to look at it in the afternoon. Finally, there are some spellings for you to learn. As I am in school each day, there may be a delay in getting back to you, but please do send in your questions using the class email.
