In your green maths book:
a) Addition and subtraction word problems. Read each of these word problems and decide if you need to use addition or subtraction to solve it. Write down the calculation in your book and solve it.
1. A new bike costs £189. A trampoline is £275. How much will it cost to buy them both?
2. A new bike costs £189. A trampoline is £275. How much more does the trampoline cost than the bike?
3. Sophie has read up to page 268 of her book. There are 514 pages in the book altogether. How many pages does she have left?
4. In one week, Chris reads one book that is 386 pages long, and then another that is 457 pages. How many pages did he read altogether?
5. Farmer Ted needs a new shed (which is £365) and a mower (which is £479). If he's got £1000 to spend, how much money is he going to have left?
(Hint - you're going to need to do two calculations for this one!)
I'll put the answers to this tomorrow.
In your purple writing book:
b) Revising the 'ch' as a k sound. Read this list of words. Write down in your book the 6 where it makes the k sound:
school, archer, charcoal, chaos, orchid, stench, echo, chemist, chart, Archimedes
c) Write your own limerick! Yesterday, you were asked to read examples of limericks (this is attached again below). Click back on Tuesday for an explanation of the structure and rhyme of a limerick again if you need to.
i) First....choose a single subject to write about. Up to you! One about yourself? The garden? A place? A mini-story about a character? School? Virus pandemics??? A creature? The sea?
ii) Try saying ideas to yourself first, and writing out a rough version, as you'll probably need to do a little editing to get the structure and rhyme correct.
iii) When you're happy, write down a title for it and finished version in your book. As ever, send me a copy if you're pleased with what you come up with!
d) Science. Follow the links below to the BBC Bitesize page about bees and flowers, and the DK page about parts of a flower.
i) In your book, draw and label a diagram of the parts of a flower. You should be looking to use all of the words such as stamen, carpel, stigma etc. (Click on the Flower diagram below to see an easy to draw example).
ii) Now the fun part! Go outside (into your garden if you can, or perhaps when out for your daily walk) and pick (or closely examine if your parents don't want you to pick them!) some flowers. Which of the parts that you have just labelled can you identify? You may have to look very closely! Obviously there are huge numbers of varieties of flowers, and the parts you have labelled will be clearer in some than in others. At this time of year, bluebells have quite clear examples of these parts, as do some kinds of tree blossom. But see what you can find!
