Title: Can I use the column method to subtract?

This week we have been learning how to subtract using the column method. Most of us have been learning how to borrow numbers to make our subtraction calculations work.

You have been given a subtraction sheet to complete. All sheets involve borrowing from another column. Some of your questions may even involve borrowing more than once!  There is an example at the top of each sheet to remind you – remember you must always start in the units column!

This week you are allowed to work on the sheet however you must make sure you have got a date and a title which has been underlined.

Some of you have been given 2 sheets, you may choose to do both if you would like but the idea is that you choose the one you feel will challenge you! Some of you have been given a different challenge to your group – this is based on how well you got on this week!

Your English homework this week has been replaced with DT homework. In DT we will be designing and making photo frames. In order to do this you need to think about who you would like to make your photo frame for and what they would like the photo frame to look like. You need to ‘survey’ the person you choose to make the photo frame for by asking them questions about colour and design. Use the sheet to help you.

Title – Can I use apostrophes for contraction?

This week we have spent time learning about apostrophes and how they can replace letters to create a contraction.

E.g. Will not = won’t

I will = I’ll

Cherries, Grapes, Oranges and Pears – Your sheet is split into two parts. For the first part you must write the words that the contraction stands for. For the second part, you must turn the words into a contraction, ensuring you put the apostrophe in the correct place. You may work on the sheet and glue it beautifully into your book.

Strawberries and Watermelons – Your sheet requires you to firstly identify which words the contractions are made up of, then list the letter that the apostrophe replaces. Finally, you must put the contraction into a sentence, making sure the apostrophe is in the correct place and that your sentence is exciting! You may work on the sheet and glue it beautifully into your book.

 

All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined beautifully with a ruler. You must use your BEST handwriting!

Some of you have to look at the given examples and then work out what the rules is. Answer on the sheet. Each rule needs 6-8 examples of that type of plural word in the right hand box.

Maths

Miss Wolfe/Miss Stanbridge You have questions to answer on multiplying mixed fractions. Remember you will need to convert the mixed fractions into improper fractions before you multiply. You might end up with some large numbers in your fractions so please convert your answer back to a mixed number and simplify it too. Most of you have a sheet of sums – write the question and you must show all the stages of your working out. Some of you have jigsaw pieces where you need to match the sum with the answer. Please cut these out and then stick the final shape which you make into your Maths book.
