Maths

Converting Measurements

For today’s session you are going to continue to develop your knowledge of converting measurements. Again this is available either on the Google Classroom or you can complete the answers in your maths book/on printed sheets.

Please take care when multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 as this is where the misconceptions are creeping in through this work.

When converting decimal numbers and multiplying by 100 or 1000 you need to think about the jumps, take a look below at the different jumps you need to make for the measurements.

When you are converting from metres to centimetres you need to use your knowledge of multiplying by 100.

e.g 3.24m =       cm

3.24 x 100 =

When you are converting from km and kg to metres and grams this is where you need to multiply by 1000 – remember the clue is in the word kilo = 1000. This also happens when you convert from litres to millilitres (again milli = 1000)

eg: 3.24litres=       ml

3.24 x 1000 =

When you are dividing by 100, this is when you will convert centimetres to metres.

eg: 32.4cm =     m

32.4 divide by 100 =

When you are converting from metres to kilometres, grams to kilograms and millilitres to litres you need to divide by 1000 – this requires you to make 3 jumps of the numbers.

eg: 32.4kg =     g

32.4 divide by 1000 =

As part of your task today you need to also use your word skills, once you have spent time converting the measurements you need to find the letter they belong to and jot it down. Once you have all the letters from the question you need to find the maths based word hidden in the letters you have. There are hints to what the word should begin with on your sheet.

Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

English

Following on from yesterday, where you created and opening sentence and paragraph of your persuasive letter, today our English lesson will be concentrating on building our persuasive vocabulary. We will start to write a list of persuasive words and sentences together during our live lesson today which will relate to the letter you will be writing to the Mayor of Hamelin later on in the week.

Persuasive texts often include:

Repeated words

Alliterative Words

Example: The rats are running riot in the roads.

Emotional language

Example: I am really disappointed in the fact that you haven’t paid the Pied Piper to sort out the rat problem.

A strong argument

Example: Our town will not be worth living in anymore.

Rhetorical questions

Example: Do you really want our town ruined by these rats?

I have listed some words below, for your task today I would like you to write at least two sentences for each of these words.  Your sentences need to relate to the letter you will be writing to the Mayor of Hamelin later this week.  I have given you a couple of examples to get you started.

Example sentences:  The smell of the rats is awful, you must do something quickly.

You definitely need to pay the Pied Piper.

• Definitely
• Need
• Awful
• Must
• Should
• Will
• Absolutely
• Certainly
• Revolting
• Outstanding

Please look back at all the examples I have given you to remind yourselves of the types of sentences you can use these words in.  Remember your sentences must relate to the letter you will be writing to the Mayor and I want two sentences for each word. This will help you when you are writing your letters.

Title for your books: The Story of the Khalsa

Start off by thinking - Why are we learning about different Sikh Stories?

Read the story – The Founding of the Khalsa attached below.

The festival of Baisaikhi occurs in April when young Sikhs drink Amrit and become members of the Khalsa. By taking Amrit, Sikhs accept all people as being equal, help those who suffer injustice, serve others selflessly and dedicate their lives to God.

The themes in this story are bravery and equality.

• Are these themes important in today’s world?
• Where is there inequality in the world?
• What can be done about it?

Choose the set of questions you are able to answer and write your answers in full sentences that make sense, you only need to do sheet 1 or sheet 2 – not both. Please put these in your blue book.
