Learning Together at Home: 20.05.20

Wellbeing Wednesday 😊 I hope you are all being kind to everyone in your house and to yourselves. Head over to the main school blog for this week’s Wellbeing Wednesday activities.

On Teams, please remember the general channel is for you to ask any questions about your learning and for you to share what you have been doing at home. The playground channel is a place where you can chat with each other. 😊 Please let the school know if you need help logging in or need a device to access Teams.

Literacy: reading

Spend at least 15 minutes reading some of a book (any book) out loud to an adult. Keep working on some of the comprehension activities posted yesterday.

Remember to read for pleasure as well, just like we do during BEAR time in school!

Literacy: spelling

Practise your spelling words at least once using one of the suggestions on the Spelling Homework grid. Remember to practise any words you are finding challenging more than once!

Literacy: writing

Download this document for today’s writing task:

When you have finished, take a picture of your writing and upload it into the ‘Writing for feedback’ file in the Files section of our class Teams.

Maths: division

Daily 10 on Topmarks – choose a level of challenge that is appropriate for you within Division

Two new challenges have launched on Sumdog this week – one to develop your division skills and one to revise time. They will end at 5pm on Friday.

Yesterday we looked at how we can use number lines as a strategy to solve division problems.

Today we are going to explore how we can use our times tables facts as a strategy to help us solve division problems. Think back to the work we did on fact families as this will help us today. Watch this video for an explanation of this strategy:

Have a go at this example, then scroll down to see if your answer matches mine:

When you are feeling confident, have a go at these examples in your jotter:

Mild (2, 5, 10, 3, 4)Hot (3, 8, 6, 7 9)
40 ÷ 10 =
14 ÷ 2 =
30 ÷ 5 = 
24 ÷ 4 = 
70 ÷ 10 =
18 ÷ 3 =
45 ÷ 5 =
18 ÷ 2 =
12 ÷ 4 =
24 ÷ 3 =
27 ÷ 3 =
72 ÷ 9 =
42 ÷ 6 =
49 ÷ 7 =
64 ÷ 8 =
48 ÷ 8 =
91 ÷ 7 =
84 ÷ 6 =
117 ÷ 9 =
72 ÷ 3 =

When you have finished, download this document to check your answers:

Choose one of these worksheets to complete to further consolidate your learning:

Mental Maths Train and Hit The Button are good games to practise this strategy with because they are encouraging recall of facts.

Extra challenge

Apply your knowledge of times tables facts to solve these missing number division problems.

Science and Handwriting will be in separate blog posts.
