Happy Wednesday Year 5! And happy April Fools Day! Hope you are all good to your families today and don't play any tricks. Here is your work for today. I will be tracking who completes their work and would like you all to make sure you are commenting on my blog posts. If you finish your work today and want to do something else, why not colour one of the mindfulness colouring sheets from your home learning pack or do another piece of art work?
LO - To identify and use the correct homophones
We did homophones at the beginning of the year and a lot of you still find them tricky! There are literally hundreds of homophones in the English language and they can often be the reason why so many of us misspell words on a daily basis...even adults. So why are homophones so difficult? Homophone means ‘one sound.’ We have words in our language that sound the same but are spelt differently.
Please complete the 'Homophone Hero' activity on Education City and make sure you also complete the worksheet. A lot of you didn't do this on Monday for Maths. If you can print it then great but if you can't just write them in your book! After, I would like you to comment on my blog post to see if you can find 3 homophones.
LO - To divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000
You multiplied by 10, 100 and 1000 yesterday so now it's time to divide! Think about which way the digits move. Complete the following questions in your books.
If you want an extra challenge, I have attached a multiplying by 10,100 and 1000 jigsaw puzzle. If you have a printer, print it off and see if you can put it together. You can still do it if you don't have a printer as you can copy it, cut out the pieces and put it together. I would love to see some pictures if any of you choose to do this.
LO - To write an 8 bar rhythm
In class we have been using lots of different rhythms to create our samba pieces. Today you're going to have a go at writing your own 8 bar rhythms.
- one bar is 4 beats, so you will need 32 beats altogether
- a crotchet is the same as MARS
- two quavers are the same as KITKAT
- four semi quavers are the same as DOUBLE DECKER
MARS, KITKAT, DOUBLE DECKER, KITKAT = 4 beats = 1 bar.
When you have composed your rhythms, see if you can teach your family how to clap them. You could even try performing your rhythms in a round! We would love to see some of them!
