The children should find the maths fairly easy, but they much work out the value of each interval by getting the total capacity and dividing it by the number of intervals.
This work could be extended by adding/subtracting the different container capacities.
The maths today 28th April is a continuation of the capacity work.- these measures could be supplemented by asking how much would each person have if e.g. 5 people shared 3ooml of pop?
The comprehension sheet is the most important part of the text today, but the children can go onto all about words and grammar sections if they want.
Please remember that I will be at school all week, so let me know if you need any new reading books
The maths today is capacity - mainly converting litres/part litres to millilitres.
Remember there are 1000ml= 1 l , so 2 litre=2000ml, so half a litre (0.5) = 500ml
Every 0.1 litre =100ml so 0.2 litre=200ml, 0.3 litre=300ml etc
For example: 2 litre 30ml= 2000 + 30= 2030ml
1.25 litres =1000 + 250= 1250ml Take your time and check to see if your answers are reasonable.
Please use the list of similes to create sentences comparing things.
Note: most of these have a common version e.g. His throat was as dry as a bone.
Try writing the common version (you could ask someone if you don’t know!)
Then try to create some of your own:
e.g. After washing her hands so many times, the girl’s hands were like sandpaper!
Today’s maths is based on measures (cm and M)
Remember there are 100cm in a metre.
Today’s work wants you to convert metres and cm into metres and part of a metre,
so for example, if you have 1m and 30cm this = 1.30m
1m and 55cm= 1.55m 1m and 75cm= 1.75…… it is just a matter of putting the numbers of cm after the decimal point!
The second section involves working out the intervals on the graph. You need to count the small intervals in between the large intervals. This should = 10. Each large interval = 0.1metre… less than a metre! Then divide 0.1 metre (10cm) by 10, so each small interval = 1cm
Therefore, Lucy’s height = 1.4… 1,2,3,4= 1.44 and a half cm so = 1.445 m
Just do your best and remember that you can also measure things around your house using a ruler or tape measure and convert metres and centimetres into metres including parts of a metre using a decimal point.
Then try to sort out the spellings from your list that are mixed up below:
Sweran lyear clecir tinacer ysub tenof -
the word starts with the coloured letter
Now think of some better words to replace:
said: tired: quiet:
