- Spellings, tables, World Around Us etc.
Our Tables this week is a step on from our 'Sets of' from last week. This week instead of saying 2 sets of two is 4, this week we say 2 twos = 4, 3 twos= 6, 4 twos = 8 etc
Our Mental Maths this week is 'sharing'. This is an introduction to Division in Year 4. We talk about a number 'shared between' eg 6 shared between 2 is 3 which will become 6 divided by 2 is 3. If it helps then draw 2 stick people and ask your child to share sweets/cubes between them to see how many they get each.
eg 6 shared between 2 - draw 2 stick people and give your child 6 sweets cubes/ sweets and ask them to share - 'saying one for you , one for you' etc until all the sweets/cubes are shared out. Then ask how many each stick person got and that will be the answer. This helps your child visually until he/she can work it out mentally.
Our next ICT task is to create a Power point information presention about Minibeasts. We will complete this over the next 3 weeks. Each week we will upload a sheet of instructions for you to follow.
