Hi all, I hope everyone one of you are well.

I understand that there had been an issue with not being able to access a lot of the content on Education City. I was only made aware of this this morning as I am in school. Therefore, I have attached my email so that you can contact me with any queries that you have regarding your child’s home learning. weaver.d@shawburystmarys.co.uk

This week’s home learning plan is as follows;

Maths:

On Education City I have uploaded a number of tablet friendly activities. Throughout the first week your child should focus solely on division.

Use the method of short division that you have been practising. Do the calculations from the table below. You can choose your own level of challenge, start in a column that you feel comfortable with, and then try challenging yourself with calculations from the next column.

Mild Hot Spicy
95 ÷ 5 =

91 ÷ 7 =

84 ÷ 7 =

56 ÷ 4 =

72 ÷ 4 =

 

78 ÷ 6 =

68 ÷ 4 =

81 ÷ 3 =

48 ÷ 3 =

57 ÷ 3 =

 348 ÷ 4 =

252 ÷ 3 =

356 ÷ 4 =

192 ÷ 3 =

385 ÷ 5 =

 

816 ÷ 3 =

868 ÷ 4 =

285 ÷ 5 =

927 ÷ 3 =

252 ÷ 4 =

804 ÷ 6 =

819 ÷ 7 =

959 ÷ 7 =

402 ÷ 6 =

581 ÷ 7 =

 

Also, your child should choose a times table focus for the week, either 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x tables and recall/rehearse these daily. Useful websites for times tables are:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

https://www.timestables.com/speed-test/

Literacy:

To write a newspaper report about an interest. For example: A fairy tale – The 3 Little Pigs or Little Red Riding Hood, a lost pet, a football game – you could watch highlights of a game on YouTube). Children should focus on the features of a newspaper report; heading, quotes, 5 W’s, eye witness report, pictures and captions.

On Education City, there is a grammar folder. Your child is expected to complete two grammar activities throughout the week.

Spellings: 

This week’s spelling focus are words ending in the suffix ‘ness’.

Sadness, kindness, silliness, happiness, drowsiness, darkness, softness, hardness.

Reading:

Please read daily. This is a great opportunity for children to be reading aloud using expression and intonation.

Topic:

To carry out research then create an information booklet or powerpoint about Charles Darwin. Include; heading, sub-headings and pictures.

PE:

For a fantastic workout, check out Joe Wicks’ YouTube channel; The Body Coach TV. In school today the children really enjoyed #PEwithJOE. You can join in live at 9am or catch up on his YouTube channel.

Keep up the good work and look out for Wednesday’s post
