For an experiment this week, please could you bring a small electrical item that emits light and has a switch (i.e. you can turn it on and off). This could be a basic torch, bike light, or phone with a torch app. Get permission first and please no lasers or fire! Thank you…
There is one set of spellings this week for everyone; these words will cover our science learning for this term.
light, source, dark, absence, transparent, translucent, opaque, shiny, matt, surface, shadow, reflect, mirror, sunlight, dangerous
This week’s home learning will support the division we are studying in class – the model below may help make sense of a written method of division:
You could use a selection of £1, 10p and 1p coins at home (ensure that you make clear £1 = 100p in this case) .
Each ‘column of 3’ coins is used to show how the answer. Here is another example below:
Please ensure you know what each word means! (This will form part of your test next week)
adorable, valuable, advisable, believable, desirable, excitable, knowledgeable, likeable, changeable, noticeable
expression, discussion, confession, permission, admission, transmission, possession, profession, depression, impression
For maths in class this week, we are applying multiplication and spot of division to measuring volume. Please could you source and bring in to school an item of food packaging – preferably empty! It should be:
- a solid shape – no bags or unusually shaped punnets
- either cuboid, triangular or cylindrical – a tin of beans (this could be unopened and returned to you), a box of stock cubes or even a toblerone would all work well.
- no larger than a cereal packet
We will be combining this with a project on food branding.
Here is an example of the method we have been studying this week to multiply larger numbers. You don’t have to use it for your home learning, but it is a useful starting point if you need some help.
