Thursday 21st May

English:

Today you are going to be researching and finding out more about endangered animals. Have a look at the PDF at the bottom of the page, or the pictures we have uploaded. Choose AT LEAST 2 to do:

You need to:

  1. Write the name of the animal on your page.
  2. Write its habitat or country.
  3. Write the reasons that it is endangered.
  4. Write some ideas of what can be done about it.

 

Maths:

Today you will be recapping your understanding of square numbers. Watch the video below as a refresher and then have a go at the activities.

Spicy: Write down the answers to these sums: 6², 7², 8², 9², 10², 11² and 12²

Hot: Use the short method or partitioning to help you work out and answer these sums: 12², 13², 14², 15², 16² and 18²

 

Now try the challenges below:

 

1) How many square numbers can you make by adding prime numbers together?

     Here are 2 examples:    2+2 = 4    and   2+7 = 9

 

 

2) Always, sometimes or never?     A square number has an even number of factors.

 

 

3) Amir thinks that 6² = 12. Identify and explain his mistake.

 

In the top corner of your rapid recall whiteboard, you will have a space to write your number.

Range 10-20: 19

Range 30-60: 37

Range 350-450: 399

Use the information above to help you design your own animal or plant. Draw a detailed image and then annotate around it with facts and ideas. You need to consider:

The size of it, its life cycle, what it eats, where it lives, how it survives, what adaptations it has and any unique qualities.

 

Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.

 

Spellings:

Please practise your spellings daily. These lists are on our class page. You can practise the Year 1/2, Year 3/4 and the Year 5/6 spelling lists. You all know which spellings you should be practising anyway.
