Maths

Go onto TTRS f and practise times tables. Please practise your times tables everyday - try to learn them all off by heart whist you are at home.  Make posters, make your own times table grid, ask a grown up of sibling to test you when they are not busy.

L: Perimeter on a Grid

Tuesday and Wednesday this week we have been learning how to calculate the perimeter of shapes by counting squares on a grid.  Here is yesterday's fluency - I will post some reasoning and problem solving later.

1) create a display poster for 'Perimeter'

2) Investigation - draw as many shapes as you can with a perimeter of the following measurements

a) 14 cm    b) 18cm    c) 22cm  d) a measurement of your choice!

This can be any kind of rectilinear shape (not triangles - the edges need to be straight).

If you have squared paper at home, this would be easier or you could use a pencil and ruler.

If you have multi-link at home, you could make different shapes with different perimeters.

## L: Dreams and Goals

PSD - Dreams and Goals

Read through the Dreams and Goals explanation document.

Watch Michael Jordan's story - 'Salt in my Shoes'.  The link is in the document.

Draw a hot balloon and write in your dream and what you need to do to get you there.

English:

L: to write a dialogue between 2 characters.

Complete the 'RIC' based on this book front cover.

Imagine a dialogue between the 3 characters and write it out, using punctuation for direct speech accurately.

Maths

Yesterday, you worked on the fluency tasks for being able to calculate perimeter on a grid by counting squares.

Today, please complete at as many of the reasoning / problem solving tasks from the slides below in class.

Our maths lessons in school would normally be 1 hour.

**Supporting documents have now been deleted. **

L: Summarise the ideas in a paragraph.

This learning is based on the text about North America which you were asked to read yesterday.

e.g.     A short title for  1a = answer could be 'Natural Landmarks'

A short title for 1b = answer could be 'Buildings'

A short title for the two paragraphs together could be 'Famous Places or 'Famous Landmarks'.

Geography and Art

EITHER

Make a 'mini-book' or mini travel brochure for North America.

You could write each summary heading on a page of paper, draw a landmark underneath and write key facts encouraging people to visit.

OR:

Create a presentation about North America based on the reading of this text.

You could do this in poster form or as a PPT.

Friday 7th January

Computing

In school, we will be starting our unit on Scratch Coding.  I'm not sure you will be able to access this at home so I thought you could do this instead.

Use Google Maps to have a look at different cities in North America.

You could use the map of North America on https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/earth/continents/north-america/ to help guide you.

Can you find out ...?

- the 23 countries in North America and their capital cities

- the time it is over there (this comes up on google maps)

- what the weather is like (this comes up on google maps)

Library Time

We will be choosing books in the library this morning, so please find some time to read a book at home for 30 minutes.
