Tuesday 12th May 2020
Good morning everyone! I hope you are all well and that you enjoyed your first day of SATs week yesterday. Did you all get 20 out of 20 on the spellings?! I hope so Today’s silly SATs test is reading… remember to read the text and questions carefully, and make sure you answer the questions asked. I’d love to see more photos and videos of how you get on, so please ask a parent to send them in/tweet them if possible. Most importantly, I hope you enjoy it!
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Maths: multiply fractions by fractions
Continue to spend about 10 minutes working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep them fluent and up to the speeds and accuracy we have worked so hard to achieve.
After that, use the link below to find today’s lesson on multiplying pairs of fractions. Remember that this is the operation with fractions that seems tricky when first faced with a question, but it is the easiest if you remember the trick! Work through the activities and then complete the worksheets Answers are provided for you to self-mark once you have finished.
English: writing a powerful speech
How did your report writing go yesterday? I’d love to see some examples of your reports if you get chance to send them in to me. For today’s English task, follow the link below to work through the exercises on writing a powerful speech. Use the tips provided to help you.
Well-being: home school history
To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, have a listen to Greg Jenner, a historian, author, and consultant to the Horrible Histories series, tell you all about Charles Dickens. You do have to log in to BBC iplayer to listen to this, but you can use the same account that you probably have already for watching catch up tv. Ask a parent to help you if need be.
Your topic tasks for this week…
As you have your silly SATs tests to complete this week, as well as your daily maths, English and wellbeing activities, I will not be providing any new chilli challenges until next week.

There are lots of topics for you to choose from and work independently on an area of your own interest. Let me know if you get stuck into any new learning or find a topic of particular interest.
