The plan for today’s Home Learning:


-A Topic Lesson (Learning project)

-A Maths Lesson

-A GPS activity

-A Reading task

-Times Table practice


Learning objective: to create your own postcard

The day has arrived Saplings… you are going to be creating your own postcard today! Remember, you are on a road trip to the USA and on this trip,  you have visited some US states (the ones you chose on Wednesday). Using your plan from yesterday, we would like you to write a postcard to a family member or a friend back home.  Below is a template you may like to use for your postcard. You can design your own postcard if you want to and please remember to add key features (eg.stamp). You may like to use the PowerPoint from yesterday explaining the different features of a postcard (this is attached below) to help you. On the front of your postcard, you can draw a picture e.g. the USA flag. You can make your postcard as colourful as you like.

Below is a PowerPoint for this lesson that goes through some examples of how to solve the calculations on your worksheet(s). Please note when using the presentation, you will need to enter full-screen mode so that the voice over will work. Once you have done this, go to the right-hand side of each slide on the presentation where you will see a sound icon and you will need to click on this to access the audio.   

Please find the maths worksheets for both year groups below and on there are some extra challenges you may like to try as well. If you get stuck at any point, please do go back to other PowerPoints on the website.
