Maths: Fractions - 4 worksheets, plus investigations and any helpful videos and additional content on mathswithparents.com (please remember to sign up)
Reading: Read everyday plus additional comprehensions
Writing: Planned outcome: A report on Rio de Janeiro. Could end up being a big custom made poster; could be a leaflet; could be a word processed piece.
Last week's work should have put you in a could place with your understanding Rio and you should have some great ideas ready. This week it is about putting it altogether!
Lesson 1: Practise writing introductions. Don't just settle with your first effort. Write a few and decide which is your favourite! We have done this several times already this year. Hook the reader. Use a couple of facts only as you want to hold plenty back.
Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana beach and Christ the Redeemer are some of the many famous landmarks which are synonymous with Rio De Janeiro. This magnificent city is one of the most remarkable and diverse in the world and is, simply put, breath taking. Do you know the difference between the Selaron Steps and the Maracanã? No? Well read on and step in to a whole new world!
Rest of the week:
Put your report together. It's entirely up to you if you choose to do a first draft and edit before doing it in best. Alternatively, do it straight in best. Make it look brilliant!! Take your time!
I'll be posting links to 2 different art tutorials each week. Follow the instructions and send me a picture of your masterpieces to firstname.lastname@example.org

Welcome to Maple Class 2019-20
The topic in Maple class For terms 3 and 4 will be South America and this will provide the stimulus for much of our work across the curriculum. We have lots of fun and engaging lessons planned with art, history, geography, DT, writing and reading linked to this over arching topic.
In DT, children can look forward to exploring South American cuisine which I'm sure they will look forward to! We have a series of art lessons planned including art in the style of some famous South American artists.
Later on in the term, children will undertake some guided research on the Amazon rainforest and the animals which reside there as well as researching and exploring a famous tribe from the region. in Geography, the children will explore and study South American countries with a specific focus on Brazil, Rio and its famous landmarks including Sugarloaf mountain and the favelas.
Alongside all of this, The Explorer by Katherine Rundell will be our class read and guided reading sessions will be linked to this. Writing genres we will study include non chronological reports on the animals of the Amazon and a discussion text on deforestation.
Please can pupils remember to have PE kits in school all week as our timetable is flexible though the plan is for PE on Tuesdays and Fridays.
The format for spellings has changed again this term slightly. We will still focus on a specific weekly pattern in class though rather than pupils having 15 words to take home for the weekend, all word lists will be added to spelling shed. Thus far, I have been blown over by its impact and the number of times the pupils are accessing this brilliant resource.The usual expectations of children reading every night for at least 20 mins and logging on to TT Rockstars still applies. Reading records will be checked regularly and these can be used as home communication logs.
Thanks for checking our page. If any parents require a meeting, either catch me after school to arrange a time or speak to the school office.
