Class Four homework support
Here are some ideas to further support your child's learning.
This week in English, we will be completing diaries as our book characters for World Book Day. It would be great if the children could read a book in a week – we will be listening to a book called ‘Rooftoppers’ by Katherine Blundell. Visit the World Bookday website for ideas for books for Y5/6 children. We will be completing work missed during the snow days last week. We will use language to create imagery in a poem about our own mythical sea monster. The children would benefit from reading examples of classic poetry aloud and identifying the features, such as expanded noun phrases, simile and metaphor, punctuation etc. The following websites have a number of poems for recital.
The website below enables children to add a selection of words to create their own poem.
In Maths, we will be doing some work linked to World Book Day, involving problem solving and data handling. We will be completing work missed last week on fluency, reasoning and problem solving involving percentages. Children could work out new prices of items they might find online or in shops which have been reduced by different percentages. They could look on ingredient lists on cereal packets etc. and work out the weight of different ingredients from the percentages given or vice versa. The following game is also useful for practising finding percentages of numbers. It would also be useful to work on understanding pie charts.
IXL: Complete the Pie Chart areas of the Data and Graphs sections.
