Key Skills Half Term

Literacy:

Everyone was given their writing targets today. With these targets you must write a short story which includes a focus on that. For example if one of the targets was to structure all writing into appropriate paragraphs, the story would then contain appropriate and clearly structured paragraphs.

 

Numeracy:

(Apologies for the lengthy explanation)

So far in Maths this term we have looked at the following topics:

  • Place value (tenths, hundredths, etc.).
  • Grid method (multiplication in general).
  • Sequences.
  • Rounding whole numbers.
  • Multiplying by  10/100/1000 and dividing by the same numbers.
  • Adding and subtracting decimal numbers.
  • Different types of numbers; prime, square, factors and multiples.
  • 2d shapes.
  • 3d shapes.
  • Short division/bus stop method.

That is a short run-down, within those we have explored them a lot deeper. Hopefully those titles will allow you to remember. You have 3 tasks to complete:

1. Set 10 (or more) questions for a person at home to complete, then mark these. If they are wrong – can you explain why?

2. Set yourself some questions for 3 topics from above (any of them). Complete and check them so they are all correct.

3. Practise a times table which you are not perfect on. Move on to the next number and practise these.

 

These tasks are open-ended, therefore you can challenge yourself as much as you feel necessary.
