Maths Home Learning Update

As a school, we have chosen to refocus our attention in Maths on vital calculation skills.

Working at home should refresh your child's memories of calculation methods and build their confidence, supporting them ready for their return to full-time schooling (whenever that may be!).



Key Information for Maths Home Learning

  • Each week will have a different calculation focus. This week's calculation focus is: subraction.
  • Each week will begin with a mental maths task on Monday - mental maths is vital and supports written calculation methods. 
  • Our calculation booklet (which talks through each method for each year group step by step) is available on all class pages.
  • Videos to support some calculation methods are available on our school website at
  • If your child is struggling significantly, please feel free to visit a previous year groups home learning page and access their work - whatever they do, they are building a solid foundation of calculation methods ready for their return.


You will continue your persuasive writing unit. This week we would like you to think about the topic of 'deforestation'



Watch video about deforestation in the Amazon rainforest. Look out for reasons why the rainforests are being cut down (logging, ranching, homes for landless people), and what are the effects on wildlife and to our planet?

Explain that humans can have both positive and negative effects on habitats and environments. They can both help sustain environments and they can destroy environments. Can you think of some ways in which humans help sustain environments? Can you think of some ways in which humans destroy environments? Does this happen in the UK?

Read the statements from different perspectives. Sort points into for and against


Follow the step by step plan of creating your very own Zentanle Chameleon! Don't forget to share your finished pieces on facebook or twitter!!


You are going to locate specific countries within rainforests.

Find a range of countries within rainforest areas– Brazil, Bolivia, Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Guinea, Cameroon, Gabon, Congo, Madgascar etc. Look carefully at where these countries are. Establish that they are between the tropic of Capricorn & Cancer and some lie on the Equator. On the map; name the country, say whether it is the north, south, east, west etc of the country, name the continent and whether it is closest to the equator, tropic of cancer or tropic of Capricorn.
