Week 4: 27.4.20 - 1.5.20

This week our question is: What famous inventors are there?


English

Please see below an example of a non-chronological report about inventors. This week your child would have created their own non-chronological report about inventors using their notes that they made last week. The example below can be used as a rough guide and there is also a blank template which can be downloaded. However, the report can be written on any paper (or word processed) in any format you choose!

 

The skill of using notes to write full sentences is a tricky skill in itself! I always demonstrate this by using the important key facts from notes taken- orally rehearse the sentence I want to write- then write it! Children should then go back and check that their sentence makes sense.

 

Ideally, the non-chronological report should contain an eye-catching title, subheadings and questions to make the reader think!  Please ensure sentences contain accurate punctuation including capital letters, full stops, exclamation marks and commas!

 

Topic Work

 Can you create a timeline to order the inventions? Be as creative as you wish!

 

Maths

If your child requires further practise to count coins and write totals then please continue with this- it often takes a while to master this skill and can be quite tricky!

If your child is ready to move on, then please answer the following problems involving money:

 

Question 1:

Pick 3 coins.

You can use each coin more than once.

 

 

Can you find different totals?

 

1._______________________________________

 

2._______________________________________

 

3._______________________________________

 

4._______________________________________

 

Can you find more than 10 totals? 

 

 

Question 2: 

How many of these coins make up £1.00?

 

10p                                 20p


50p                                  5p

 

  2p                                   1p

 

Question 3:  

Pick ANY 5 coins. Make up different amounts of money using all the coins and show your calculations.

 

Now pick 3 silver coins only. Find the totals. 

Can you find all totals?

 

 

CHALLENGE: 

What if you have 2 bronze coin and 3 silver coins?

Largest total:

Smallest total:

 

What if you have all the coins that are even numbers?

Largest total:

Smallest total:

Prove it!
