Spellings: This week, we are going back to looking at adding the suffixes able/ably and ible/ibly to words. I have attached posters to this post which explain the rules. Usually, able/ ably are added to words, where the full root word can be heard before the suffix such as enjoyable. Ible and ibly are usually added when the full root word cannot be heard, such as terrible and terribly.
Can you practice these words, using a look write, cover check sequence?
Arithmetic: This week, we are going back to revising finding percentages of amounts. On the class webpage, I have attached a percentages knowledge organiser to help you if you are stuck cannot remember how to find certain percentages.
Here is how to find some of the common percentages:
10% = 1/10, so divide the number by 10.
5% = 5/100- find 10% and half your answer.
1% = 1/100, divide the number by 100
25% = ¼, divide the number by 4
50% = divide the number by 2
75% = 3/4 , divide the number by 4, multiply this by 3.
Can you have a go at these?
45% of 280=
20% of 580=
25% of 788=
75% of 396=
Grammar: This week, we are going to look at synonyms and antonyms! A synonym is a word that has a similar meaning to another word, while an antonym is a word that means the opposite. Can you find two synonyms for each of the words below?
English: L.O: To discuss authorial choices.
Read up to chapter 24.
How does the author link what is happening in the present with Stanley to the story in the past? Why do you think the author does this?
Do you like the way that the author weaves Kate’s story in with Stanley’s or would you prefer a prologue- style book? Why?
Maths: L.O- I can substitute numbers into an equation to find a missing value.
Today we are going to have a go at substituting values to an equation. Can you work out the values of the shapes? Year 6: Can you break the code, but substituting the numbers into the letters? The sheets of these activities to download will be on the class web page.
