# WB 18.01.21

Hello 2AB!

I hope that you are happy and healthy and the work is going well. I have really enjoyed reading your English and am very impressed with the quality of your work. Well done!

In maths this week we are going to continue looking at a different topics related to multiplication. The week starts with multiples (think: in the times table of) which you are all very good at. We then move on to factors which is slightly harder and involves you thinking of the different numbers that divide exactly into another number eg 1,8,2 and 4 are all factors of 8. Then you have the pleasure? of prime numbers. There is no shortcut with these; you need to ask yourself the same questions each time. These are detailed below and involve you working out if the number is a multiple of 2 (apart from 2 which is prime), a multiple of 3 (apart from 3 which is prime), a multiple of 5 (apart from 5 which is prime) or a multiple of 7 (apart from 7 which is prime). If you answer yes to a question, then it is not a prime number. Remember to consider each number carefully and do not rush. Towards the end of the week, we look at factors that are prime numbers and problem solving. I have put scans from the Y4 and Y5 textbooks along with the answers. 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 complete our writing on discussion texts and then look at some more grammar work.  PSHE looks at discrimination and science looks at how a magnet works. Guided reading continues to look at Bill's new frock and finally there is more Spanish work on the family and RE work on the baptism of Christ.

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.

## Start your day in a mindful way...
