Friday, 22nd May

Happy Friday everyone!

 

Today is our last day for home learning before we have a break for a week. 

 

I hope you have a lovely, restful week off and for those celebrating Eid, have a great time!

 

Mrs T

 

 

Here are a few of your Ramadan pictures...

Here are today's tasks...

MATHS

 

Warm-up  

Practice your 2, 5 and 10 times tables on the multiplication facts on Hit the Button. If you are getting really confident at these try the corresponding division facts.

Main session

It's Arithmetic Friday.

 

It's really important that we continue to focus on basic arithmetic. This is about being able to work out the answers to sums fairly quickly which we do by learning number bonds and our multiplication facts and by spotting patterns.

 

Our reviews will cover all operations along with fractions. The review gets harder as you progress through it. Remember to use your written methods/drawings to help you answer the questions, you won't be able to do them all mentally (mainly the last few).

 

You don't have to print the sheet off, you can always just do your working out and write the answers down on a separate piece of paper. 

 

The sheet says 30 minutes but please do not worry if it takes you a little longer. You will get quicker the more you practice. As I always tell you in class, if you get stuck on one move to the next one and come back to it at the end. 

 

Good luck!

LITERACY

 

Today I would like you to write few sentences about Ramadan and Eid. Some of you will know lots about this already but others may need to speak to family members or do a little research.

                                       

 

                                      

  

                                    

You many like to think about...What is Ramadan and Eid? How long does it last? What happens during it?

 

You can present it in any way but please try to write sentences using some of the grammar that we learn in Year 2 to support your work to flow. 

- connectives: and, but, so

- subordination: when, because

- commas 

Remember, don't forget the basics of capital letters and full stops.

                                           COMPUTING

 

As we have seen with the current pandemic, being computer literate is very important. Lots of you may end up with jobs in the future in computing too so today we will learn a little about coding. 

 

 

Computer code is a set of rules or instructions. It is made up of words and numbers and when you put them in the right order it will tell your computer what you want it to do. You can program lots of things with code.

 

You are going to watch some videos to explain more about coding. 

Click on this link to watch them:

Rules and instructions given to computers can be used to make them do lots of different things.

                    

 

Algorithms

You use code to tell a computer what to do. Before you write code you need an algorithm. An algorithm is a list of rules to follow in order to solve a problem. Algorithms need to have their steps in the right order. Think about an algorithm for getting dressed in the morning. What if you put on your coat before your jumper? Your jumper would be on top of your coat and that would be silly! When you write an algorithm the order of the instructions is very important.

 

                     

 

 

How do we use algorithms in our everyday lives?

I need to make a cake

The algorithm here is a cake recipe. You can find the algorithm to solve this problem in a cookbook!

I can't find the park

The algorithm you need is a set of directions to get to the park. There might be different ways to the park so you can have different algorithms.

I need to build a toy

The algorithm to follow here is the list of instructions that tell you how to make the toy.

 

When you have watched the videos have a try at the activities.
