In your purple writing book:


First of all, read through this newspaper report...of the next possible disruption to normal schooling!

a) In the report, you'll see several common features of newspaper report writing.  Note these down in your book: 

1.  The 5Ws of the story: Who/What/Where/When/Why?  Who is the story about?  What happened?  Where did it happen?  When did happen?  Why did the 'What' happen?

2.  Direct speech: This is an actual quote that somebody said, in speech marks. Copy down two examples.

3.  Reported speech: This is a more general sentence about what someone talked about, without speech marks, as it is not a direct quote.  There is one about what the caretaker said, and one about what the headteacher said. Can you find them? 

In your green maths book:


b)  Fractions of amounts.  

Calculating a fraction of a number is really just using your division skills.  For example, if you need to find 1/3 of 18.  

This means the same as 18 divided by 3, which is 6.  


It is the same with larger numbers: e.g. 1/5 of 265.

This means 265 divided by 5, so I might use a number line to show that there are fifty 5s in 250, and another three 5s in the remaining 15, so 1/5 of 265 = 53


The next level of challenge is if the numerator of the fraction is not 1.  In this case, you still need to work out what 1 of the fraction would be first, then multiply it by what the numerator actually is.  


e.g. 3/4 of 20.  1/4 of 20 is 5.  So 3/4 of 20 is 3 x 5 = 15


e.g. 4/7 of 28.  1/7 of 28 = 4.  So 4/7 of 28 = 16.  


Choose your level: 


Brown belt level: 


1.  1/5 of 35 = 

2.  1/4 of 24 = 

3.  1/3 of 27 = 

4.  1/5 of 55 = 

5.  1/8 of 32 = 

6.  1/9 of 54 = 

7.  1/4 of 48 = 

8.  1/3 of 39 = 

9.  1/5 of 100 = 

10.  1/6 of 72 = 


Black belt level: 


1.  2/3 of 30 = 

2.  3/4 of 24 = 

3.  2/5 of 25 = 

4.  3/7 of 35 = 

5.  4/9 of 81 =

6.  7/12 of 144 = 

7.  6/11 of 121 =  

8.  4/5 of 200 = 

9.  3/7 of 147 = 

10.  2/9 of 207 =


Challenge questions:

What would be 6/5 of 200? 

(You should get an answer bigger than 200!)


What is the missing number?  3/4 of __ = 60 

(Again, the missing number is bigger than 60!)


c) Spanish. 

Follow the link below to some introductory Spanish.  (I know it says Key Stage 3, but it's the same as what we learn at KS2!).  


Watch the video clip and look at the 'Greetings' and 'Asking how someone is' sections below.  (Not the whole page, there's a lot on there!)


In your book, draw out a simple cartoon/comic strip of two people meeting each other.  Draw speech bubbles and write in them to show the people saying hello and asking each other how they are. 


Can you remember all of the greetings in the Spanish/English table?
