Home Learning for Friday 20th March
 
English - Attached is a copy of the Yr5/6 Stat Spellings -  over the time school is closed, you should return to this list as often as possible to practice these words... they're your go-to time filler!  Meanwhile, today we'd like to you choose 10 words at random from the list and use these word in either a poem or short story.  You are allowed to use derivations of the words (e.g. friend could be turned into friendship, unfriendly, or friendless).  If you want to challenge yourself further, you could use each word multiple times in multiple ways.
 
Maths - Download the file "Subtracting Fractions" and practice subtracting fractions whose denominators are multiples of each other.  The sheet has bar models on them to support you if you need it.  If you want to challenge yourself, roll dice to create pairs of fractions, and find the difference by converting the fractions so their denominators are equal.
 
Reading - Create a poster about one of the following themes of Harry Potter.  Illustrate your poster with examples of where this is found in the book- if you have a copy of the book, you could retrieve quotes to include.
 
Themes:
1.  Friendship
2.  Good vs. Evil
3.  Trust
4.  Family
5.  Resilience 
 
If you are behind where the rest of the class are with Harry Potter, feel free to read and catch up!

Home Learning for Thursday 19th March
 
English -  Practice your weekly spellings in the following ways:
1.  Create sentences that correctly use the spelling words
2.  Create a wordsearch in which the spelling words are hidden
3.  Find out derivations of the words (e.g. the word magic can become the words magical, magician, unmagical) - you could post a video on Seesaw of you using the derivations correctly in different sentences
 
Maths - Download the file "Adding Fractions" and practice adding together fractions whose denominators are multiples of each other.  The sheet has bar models on them to support you if you need it.  If you want to challenge yourself, roll dice to create pairs of fractions, and add these together by converting the fractions so their denominators are equal.
 
Reading - Read Chapter 14 of Harry Potter.   From reading this chapter:
1. Generate 5 retrieval questions (Who, What, When, Where) - you could post these on SeeSaw for your classmates (or teachers) to answer
2. Create a mind-map (it could be beautifully decorated with a dragon included!) showing the thoughts Norbert the Dragon might have about the different characters he meets.  Remember, he won't know anything about their history so can only use opinions gained from that chapter.
