I hope you all had a great weekend and had a lovely day celebrating with your Dad's for Fathers Day yesterday.
Have a great day,
Here are today's tasks...
Practice your division facts on Hit the Button. These are so important and will help you in so many areas of maths so it's really important that you are good at them.
We will continue to look at money and will now focus on finding the difference. You will use your skills of recognising coins and subtraction.
Firstly, watch this video.
Afterwards I would like you to try the sheet attached below and check your work against the answers.
Remember, you can either print it, write the answers out or discuss them with a family member.
If your child finds the White Rose sheet fairly easy I have also attached an additional problem solving activity. As that suggests the questions are more tricky, take time and are to extend learning further. They get more difficult as you work through them. The answers are also provided to support you to review the work.
We will continue our work on Africa but move our focus to animals. Firstly, I would like you to think about all the different African animals that you know. Create a mind map or list. You might like to draw a picture of a few or all of the animals next to their names. I had added links to 2 videos and there is an animal picture mat attached below to help you and/or to check your animals against. How many did you get by yourself? Have a try to see how many you can think of before watching the videos and looking at the mat.
Once you have created your list or mind map I would like you to think about which is your favourite animal from your list and why? Write a few sentences about that animal remembering to use connectives (and, so, but) and subordinating conjunctions (because, when, that).
You might tell me which is your favourite and why, how it looks, where it lives, what it eats etc.
We will continue our work on African patterns today as mentioned on Friday. Complete the work that you started on Friday or create a new pattern today.
Look at the power point attached below to learn more about African patterns. I would then like you to create you own pattern. I have attached some templates in case you want to choose one from there. You could print one out, copy it to use, or create one of your own. Then take your time to colour it in.
