English - Monday 20th September

Today you will be answering questions about another Rudyard Kipling text. 

Read 'Rikki-Tikki-Tavi' or ask somebody at home to read it to you. Read the specified pages carefully before answering the questions on a piece of paper. 

Group A - A short answer of one or two words is fine. 

  1. What details tell the reader that this is not an English garden? (page 127)
  2. What sort of animal is Nag? (page 128)
  3. Who warns Rikki that Nagaina is behind him? (page 128)
  4. Who killed Nag? (pages 133-134)
  5. What is a 'bangstick'? (pages 135-138)

Groups B and C - Explain each answer in a sentence or two. 

  1. What words tell you that Rikki is a curious character? (page 127)
  2. What mistake does Rikki make when he bites Nagaina? (page 128)
  3. Why didn't Rikki eat Karait? (pages 130-131)
  4. What simile does Rudyard Kipling use to explain how quietly Nag was moving? How is it effective? (pages 130-131)

Group D - Explain each answer in a few sentences or a short paragraph. 

  1. How does Rudyard Kipling show that Rikki is still a young and inexperienced mongoose? (page 128)
  2. Why does Rudyard Kipling tell the reader about Nagaina's motives for killing the humans? How does it make us view her differently? (pages 133-134)
  3. Is Nagaina a 'wicked' character as Rudyard Kipling says? Explain why. 

Arithmetic - Monday 20th September

Groups 1 and 2 - Today you will be finding the total of any pair of single digit numbers.

Find somebody at home to play 'Flippy Floppy Fingers' with. Face each other and both shake your fingers while saying 'Flippy Floppy Fingers'. Then both reveal any number of fingers. Who can find the total of fingers first? The first to find the total wins a point. Play the game for three minutes. Who is the winner? 

Groups 3 and 4 - Today you will be working on place value in 1-place decimal numbers.

How do we write 6 millimetres as centimetres? 6mm is 6/10 of a cm so we can write it as 0.6cm. Work with somebody at home to measure the length of their fingernails to the nearest mm and then write each measurement in cm. Then rewrite them in order of length. 

Maths - Monday 20th September

Year 5 - Today you will be comparing numbers to 1,000,000 using place value.

Year 5 Maths Lesson 5

Year 6 - Today you will be ordering numbers up to 10,000,000. 

Year 6 Maths Lesson 5

Arithmetic - Tuesday 21st September

Groups 1 and 2 - Today you will be counting on in 10s from any three-digit numbers.

Start by thinking of an action (jump, wave hands, bow etc). This is the action that you will do when you cross to the next 100. Start counting in 10s from any 3-digit number. For example: 234, 244, 254... Remember to do your action when you say a new hundreds number. Repeat with different 3-digit numbers and record some of your sequences onto paper. 

Groups 3 and 4 - Today you will be adding to the next whole number from a 1-place decimal number.

Play 'Ping Pong' with somebody at home. Ask your partner to call out a number with one decimal place, e.g. 3.6. You work out what how many is needed to make the next whole number, e.g. 0.4. Your partner will occasionally say 'ping' to which you need to say 'pong'. 

Maths - Tuesday 21st September

Year 5 - Today you will be comparing numbers to 1,000,000 using pictorial representations. 

Year 5 Maths Lesson 6

Year 6 - Today you will be rounding numbers up to 10,000,000 to the nearest million, hundred thousand and ten thousand.

Arithmetic - Wednesday 22nd September

Groups 1 and 2 - Today you will be working on pairs to 20, and related subtractions.

Here are some bar models. For each one, write 4 facts that go with it. For example: 17 + 3 = 20, 3 + 17 = 20, 20 - 3 = 17 and 20 - 17 = 3. 

Groups 3 and 4 - Today you will be placing 5-digit numbers on a number line.

Take a piece of paper and draw a blank number line along it. Write 0 at the beginning of the line and 100,000 at the end. Ask somebody at home to secretly choose a 5-digit number and to draw an arrow on your number line to show approximately where it goes. Your task is to suggest the number that it could be. Your partner will tell you whether the mystery number is more or less than your guess. Keep guessing. How many attempts does it take you to find the mystery number? 

Maths - Wednesday 22nd September
