WB 25.01.21

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 continue looking at a different topics related to multiplication and division. The week starts with multiplying and dividing by ten before looking at formal methods for multiplication and division. We then move on to square and cube numbers before looking at 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 start to look at diary recounts and our writing will take inspiration from another Anne Fine book, 'The diary of a killer cat.' Grammar focuses on fronted adverbials and guided reading continues to look at Bill's new frock. In PSHE we will consider privacy and science looks at magnetic fields. Finally there is work on the family in Spanish and artwork on drawing a face. 


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 all day on Monday and Tuesday and will not be available on Wednesday afternoon. However, I will be able to look at work in the evening. For the rest of the week, I will be teaching in the morning and available in the afternoon. Finally, there are some spellings for you to learn. As I am teaching 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...
