Title: Can I solve money problems?

This week we have been learning how to add amounts of money and how to find change. We have also solved money problems.

 

Mrs Pilgrim and Mrs Jones’ Set

Title: Can I find change?

You have all been given a sheet which involves adding amounts of money together, and then subtracting them from the amount of money given. This week you are not allowed to write on the sheet. You must copy your calculations into your book. I will be checking for a neat date and title. Remember that each number has its own square and any decimal points belong on the line.

 

Miss Weston’s Maths Set

Title: Can I find change?

Monkeys and Ostriches + Lions and Zebras – You need to complete two sums per questions. The first sum is an addition one where you need to add the items prices together. You then need to find the change by subtracting for the second sum.

Giraffes and Elephants – You have been given some receipts. You must work out the total amount spent and then find the amount of change that will be given using the money stated on the receipt. You must show your workings out in your book with a date and title underlined neatly.

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are learning your times tables every day. It is very evident in class who has been learning them. You could play ‘Hit the Button’ to motivate you to learn them in a fun and interactive way!

 

English

Title: Can I use adventurous vocabulary?

This week, we have had a lesson on using exciting vocabulary to make our writing more interesting to read. For homework, you have been given a list of 6 words which you must find out the meaning for, and then write a sentence using this word. Try to make your sentence as exciting as possible. Underline the word you have used in a coloured pencil. Don’t forget to include the long date and a title and underline them both beautifully. You should also be focusing on your handwriting.

 

Reading

We are continuing to check Home School Books every Monday. Remember you need at least four readings each week with an adult signature. If you record more than four readings then the amount of house points that you could get increases too!
