# Week Beginning 20th April

Maths:

This week in Maths we are moving on to rounding decimals to the nearest whole number and looking at how to write decimals as fractions.

First, look at the ‘Rounding Decimals PowerPoint’ which has clear explanations and examples that will help you round decimals to the nearest whole number. In addition, you can look at the following link on YouTube which recaps how to round decimals:

When you have looked at the ‘Rounding Decimals PowerPoint’ and the YouTube clip, have a go at some of the worksheets and activities.

1. Worksheet 1 Rounding decimals to the nearest whole number
2. Worksheet 2 Rounding decimals to the nearest whole number
3. Find the route by rounding decimals

There is also a PowerPoint to look at ‘Writing decimals as fractions PowerPoint’ which will help to explain a useful method to write decimals as fractions. Once you feel confident with this, then you can have a go at a ‘Writing decimals as fractions’ worksheet.

Some of the worksheets have 1 star, 2 star and 3 star sheets, where you can pick one of them to do depending on how confident you are feeling. If you are not feeling as confident, start on the 1 star sheets until you feel more secure. Those of you who usually work on the mastery activities or are feeling confident should challenge yourself to complete the 3 star sheets.

Good luck!

LITERACY W/C 20/4

Over the next few weeks we will be looking at Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes and creating our own Revolting Rhyme in the style of Roald Dahl. Please complete one task per day. They need to be completed in the order they are given.

1. Watch the video for the poem The Three Little Pigs (or read the poem).

While you are listening think about how the writing is structured. What do you notice?

Roald Dahl has used rhyming couplets in his poem. Today we are going to find some rhyming words (RHYMING PAIRS DOCUMENT). Have a go at finding rhyming pairs for the words given on the rhyming pairs sheet. 1 star is easier, 2 star is harder, 3 star is the hardest. Collect your ideas on paper.

2. Using your rhyming pairs from yesterday, can you put them into couplets that make sense. For example:

Boats and floats: I’ve always been scared of boats, in fact I’m scared of anything that floats.

Night and flight: In the blackened dead of night, an intrepid adventurer took a mysterious flight.

Now you have a go, you can record your ideas on paper or video and upload them to your portfolio.

3. Reread the poem The Three Little Pigs. How has Roald Dahl changed the story? What changes could you make to other traditional tales? Think about changes you could make to the following traditional tales, record your ideas and upload to your portfolio.

CINDERELLA, HANSEL AND GRETEL, BILLY GOATS GRUFF

4. Look at the Three Little Pigs poem again. Today we are going to box up the poem. I have done one for your parents so they can see what you need to do (Lesson 4 documents). Identify the main parts of the story and write a sentence or two describing what is happening in each part of the story. You can also draw a picture.

5. Reading Comprehension: There are three different levels of questions. Choose the level you think is most appropriate. One star is easier, two star harder, three star hardest.

SPELLING, PUNCTUATION AND GRAMMAR (SPAG)

Have a go at the 2Do we have set on Purple Mash using apostrophes for possession (the boy's hair is brown) versus no apostrophe for plural words (the boys are playing football). Good luck!

As an extra challenge, have a go at writing some sentences using apostrophes for possession.
