Dear Parents and Carers,
We have been working hard to put together some work for your children to do when we are off school. Here is an overview of tasks we’d like children to complete at home over the coming weeks.
We are committed to making sure that your child is still learning as much as possible and endeavour to do our best to keep this happening. If you’d like to send us pictures of your child’s work, that’d be great.
We will also try to update the year group page on the school website on a day-to-day basis.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding children's work please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe and keep well

The tasks should be self-explanatory (and also may change on a day-by-day and weekly basis) but contact us via email if you need to ask us something: email@example.com
Power Maths (1 lesson a day)
Our next maths topic is algebra. At the beginning of every lesson, you’ll do the Super 8 (a 10-minute maths fluency activity to get your brains warm) then you’ll start the maths lesson (all on a PowerPoint). Each lesson consists of a problem, followed by an activity to practise the skill. Finally, you need to complete questions based on what you’ve learned (in the ‘Maths Question Sheets’ document on the website).
Please write the answers to each the questions in your workbook with a title and a date then mark them with an adult using the answer sheet (in ‘Maths Answer Sheets’ document on the website).
Each lesson on the PowerPoint has a step-by-step guide and please look in your SATs study guided, ask your parents or get a parent to email us if there’s anything you really don’t understand. .
Challenge: If you want an extra challenge, have a go at the ‘Algebra (Harder Questions) on the website or visit the NRICH website: https://nrich.maths.org/public/topic.php

Plan, draft and write your Discovering a Maya Tomb story that we’ve planned together. Use the success criteria to help you and try and include everything on it. Then write your finished copy into your workbook. If you’d like to do some artwork for this too, that’d be amazing.
