Today's work is a Long Maths and a Short English.

The Maths for Year 6 is addition of 4 and 5 digit numbers, including an explanation of whether answers are correct or not. In addition, there is also a second sheet with an addition investigation.

The Maths for Year 5 is developing their understanding of Roman Numerals. There are some great practise activities and a challenge to solve!

There are several activities for the short English. You may choose just one of the activities or you may complete all of them.

Tuesday

Today's work is Short Maths and a Long English.

The Maths for Year 6 is subtraction with 4 and 5 digit numbers along with an explanation of whether answers are correct or not.

The Maths for Year 5 is a My Maths activity looking at solving a Roman Numeral challenge. This builds on from their work yesterday. 

There are 2 activities for English today. The FIRST is a reading comprehension based on the life of the famous author and television star, David Walliams. You will see 3 separate reading activities with either 1,2 or 3 stars at the bottom of the pages. Choose the appropriate level for your child. The reading comprehension with 3 stars is the most challenging. Your child only needs to read and answer questions on one of the levels. The SECOND English activity is practising accurate use of semi-colons to separate clauses. Again, similar to the reading comprehension, there are either 1,2 or 3 stars at the bottom of each page for you to decide which level is appropriate for your child. You do NOT have to do all three.
