Hello Class F! I hope you're all okay and have had a lovely half term. As you will be aware, we are welcoming some children back to school today. I will be in school everyday now and I am so sad that you won't be joining me. Please keep in touch by emailing me and commenting on our class blog. You have all done a fantastic job so far and I am so proud of you for how hard you've been working and how well you've adapted to this new way of learning. I will do my very best to reply to all your emails as promptly as I can, but if you don't get a response straight away then please know that I will reply as soon as possible!

Take care,

Miss Makinson xxx

1.6.20

L.O: To multiply unit and non-unit fractions by a whole number. 

 

Starter:

Click here to play the Hit the Button game. I would like you to spend at least 10 minutes practising your times tables as this will really help you with your main maths activities this week.

Main activity:

We haven't covered this before in class but I know you are all capable of completing at least the first sheet of questions. Watch this video and read the instructions and examples carefully and you will be able to complete the activity. 

There are two sheets of questions. You do not need to answer them all. Have a go at the first few - if these are too easy, then you can skip to the questions on the second page. If not, then carry on answering the questions on the first page only. 

Morning Lesson 2 - English
