English: Y4 Punctuating direct speech; Y5 writing both direct and indirect speech. Interview someone in your house about their views on the school closure. Can you record their answers as direct speech (e.g. “I’m bored of being at home.” complained my little brother.) Year 5 challenge: how could you record this as indirect speech too (e.g. My little brother complained that he was bored.) Make sure you remember ALL the punctuation needed.
Maths Y4: Solving problems involving fractions & decimals. Maths Y5: Solving problems involving converting measures. There are problem sheets to download from the class webpage for both Y4 and Y4 Maths. If you are unable to access these, the children could make up their own real life problems using things at home to inspire them. E.g. A large bottle holds 2.5 litres of lemonade; Each glass holds ¼ of a litre. If we drink four glasses, how many millilitres will be left in the bottle? How many more drinks can we have before we run out?
