This week in Maths we are continuing with addition and subtraction. There are individual links below to each day’s video as we are following the alternative White Rose plan. (Sheets are all saved below).
You can see the notes from last week on how to use jottings/manipulatives to help with working out but hopefully by now the children are familiar with the different methods.
Please continue to use the Classroom secrets Varied Fluency and Problem Solving and reasoning sheets as extra/alternatives if children prefer them and find the White Rose work too hard/easy.
Watch the video for each day and complete the relevant worksheet (all saved below with answer sheets).
Monday – Add two 3-digit numbers – crossing 10 or 100 https://vimeo.com/420240608

SPAG Grammar Mats 4,5,6.
Read through the Powerpoint entitiled ‘Embrace our differences’ and create a poster or poem to show what you have learnt. (This may support you in some conversations around the recent news, which I hope you will agree are important conversations to have with your children). Children can also read more about it on Newsround here – https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52813673
Look through the ‘What is pointillism?’ powerpoint then the images in Pointilism Mountains. Choose your favourite and recreate it. You’ll need paint and an instrument to ‘paint’ with (I like to use the non-brush end of the paintbrush or a very, very thin brush. If you don’t have paint you can create a similar image using felt-tips or colouring pencils.) Gently sketch a rough outline in light pencil, then think about which colours you will use where. Start at the top of the page and work down so you don’t smudge paint and try to stick to one colour at a time or you’ll need multiple brushes/implements.
Before you start – can you name the 5 oceans and 7 continents and locate them on a world map? Can you point to the UK? France? Spain? Italy? Which other countries and capitals can you name?
Look at the Map of Mountain Ranges of the world and choose one to research. (http://www.ducksters.com/geography/mountain_ranges.php ).
Answer the Mountain Research Questions.
Can you think of any other interesting ways to show what you have learnt? Perhaps make a leaflet, poster, powerpoint, video…
Unfortunately our trial with Language Nut for French is coming to an end so you won’t be able to use it for much longer, but you can try these instead –
Have a great week and don’t hesitate to get in touch if we can help with anything.
