# Thursday

Maths

You will need the speed challenge sheet, a pencil and a 1-minute timer.

Complete the next set of 10 calculations.  Did you do better than yesterday?

You will need Multiplication and Division powerpoint, multiplication and division word problems and a pencil.

Talk through the powerpoint with your child.

Give your child the worksheet.  Reinforce the concept of the problem-solving hand – 5 steps, one for each finger on a hand, we use in school to help solve word problems.

1. Read it – read the problem carefully
2. Stop and think – think about what it is asking you, underline the important information
3. Find the calculation – write the calculation down
4. Strategy – think about the best strategy to solve the calculation
5. Solve it – now you are ready to find the answer

You may need to read the question to your child, then encourage them to complete steps 2 to 5 themselves.

Please send the completed sheet to your class email.

English(30 minutes)

You will need: Your storyboard, a phone

One of our targets in English is to read out loud with expression and intonation. Intonation is the rise and fall of your voice when reading and Expression is the way you convey a feeling or emotion when reading.

When you use intonation and expression you make the story come alive by using your voice. For example: When using expression if in the story there is a character that is sad you might read their part in a sad voice, if there is a character that is happy you would use a happy voice when they are speaking. If using intonation you might use your voice to convey the story plot maybe lowering your voice for quiet or scary sections or using an amazed voice if something unusual happens.

Today, you will be reading your story out loud, using both expression and intonation. Remember to practise lots of times so that you become fluent and you know exactly what you are reading.

Independently read your reading book or a different story for 20 minutes on your own.

Science

You will need: laptop/tablet/phone and the habitats worksheet

Living things and their habitats

With an adult, recap the information PowerPoint about habitats.

We then challenge you to research about an ocean habitat, using the link here:

You are not restricted to this link if you want to do some additional research with an adult.

Then you will complete the factfile information sheet on that animal that lives in the sea/ocean. Try to ensure you are drawing scientific diagrams (that means drawing what they really look like!)
