Here is week 4 of at home learning for our last summer term. Remember task 1 is what we would like you to complete, task 2 and weekly challenges are optional - they are there for the extra challenge. If you require any support with any of the learning provided, please do get in contact with us and we will get back to you as soon as we can. 


Guided Reading

Task 1 - Answer Questions 2 - 8

It's time to start answering questions on our text this week - The Netherlands. You should have already now read the text quite a few times and started to form an understanding of the text. Look at each question and think about the skills you need to answer them successfully. Is it retrieval? Is it inference? Is it summarising the text? Is it word choice and meaning? Underline the key words in the question and answer in full sentences. 



Task 1 - Writing with Modal Verbs

Think about your own answers to the three questions about Eric on the document below: Tuesday 23rd June and Wednesday 24th June. Write your answers in full and clear sentences. Use modal verbs as you do this! You COULD also challenge yourself further and write some relative clause sentences with modal verbs!

Task 2 - Try the Fun-Time Extras

Look at the Endpapers on the document below: Tuesday 23rd June and Wednesday 24th June. These are Shaun Tan’s drawings that he puts at the start and finish of his books. What is your favourite drawing? Could you make up a story about it? Could you make your own collection of sketches in this style?

Maths - Perimeter and Area

Watch the BBC BiteSize Video again to help you with this. 


Task 1 - Page 67/68

Be careful! Make sure you measure all the sides of these irregular shapes. Do the first one then check your answer. If you find it tricky please go to the alternative Task 1 and give these compound shapes a try by counting the squares.

To find the missing lengths on page 68 you are going to need your division skills to work out the answer.Look at the example of question 1.

Alternative Task 1 - Resource Sheet 831

This sheet will help you work out perimeter and area by counting the squares. Count around the shape for perimeter. Count inside to work out the area inside the shape.

Task 2 - Homework Sheet Area and Perimeter

Take your time over this, there are lots of questions to try plus it will test your memeoy of 2D shapes!
