Maths

Learn how to recognise non-unit fractions.

This lesson includes:

-one video

-three activities

I have included the sheets needed for Activity 1 and 2 to print out. You might only have time to complete 1 of the activities today, so why not have a look at both and decide which one to do?

English

Follow the link below for todays English lesson on BBC Bitesize. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zjwcsk7

To be able to identify words that have been contracted (made shorter) and use contracted words in your writing.

This lesson includes:

-three activities to do at home

Don’t spend too long on Activity 1 and 2 today. Activity 3 is important.

Please use your Home Learning Book and divide your page into 4 equal sections for Activity 3.

Don’t forget to underline the answers first when you find them hidden in the text.

Science

Watch the *Lesson presentation about what plants need to grow. Can you remember all the different things they need?

This week, we will be doing an investigation to find out whether temperature makes a difference to how plants grow.

We are going to plant some cress. Cress is very easy to grow and grows very fast.

Follow the instructions to plant your cress in the 2 different conditions. (One could be grown on a warm windowsill, but as its also warm outside at the moment, perhaps you could think of a cooler place inside your home – e.g the fridge)

Once your cress has grown, write down your conclusions about whether temperature makes a difference to how plants grow.

Have some fun growing the rest of your cress seeds either following Mr Blooms instructions using an old pair of tights, or using an old cleaned yoghurt pot and enjoy making a nice egg and cress sandwich once you’ve cut it.

Don’t forget to send a photo in to school!

Times tables

Today Clara the Hen will get you up and moving whilst learning about multiplication and division again.

Practice today with your 5 times table and division facts and write them in your Home Learning Book like this :

1x5=5 so 5÷5=1

2x5=10 so 10÷5=2

3x5=15 so 15÷5=3

and so on. What do you notice?
