WOW: practise and learn our times / division table targets.

 

1. COMPLETE QUIZ - ask an adult to quiz you on your times table target. 

 

You will need to choose one sheet to complete your quiz on below depending on whether you are working on an 'in order' or an 'out of order' times table target. Use this format (same as we use in school) to complete your quiz.

 

REMEMBER! You are only allowed 3 mins to complete the quiz and you must get 40/40 to move on to the next times table target.

 

2. MARK YOUR QUIZ using the multiplication charts below - use a different colour and correct any answers you get wrong. 

 

3. PRACTISE your new times table target or your existing target if you didn't get 40/40.

 

The order you will learn and practise your times tables are listed below:

 

IN ORDER:

 

X2, X5, X10, X3, X4, X8

 

OUT OF ORDER:

 

X2, X5, X10, X3, X4, X8

 

Please use this extra time wisely and practise your target times table ready for the quiz NEXT Friday (15.01.20).

 

Use the following strategies to help you practise:

 

1. Practise writing the times tables out in your homework book - can you present them in fun ways to help you remember them?

 

2. Practise chanting the times table you are working on, e.g. 1X2 = 2, 2X2 =4, 3X2=6 and so on.

 

3. Ask an adult to test you by asking you random sums, e.g. if you are practise your X2 they might say: 1x2 or 2x2 or 3x2 

 

4. You could use an I -pad or computer to practise on the following websites /APPS below:

WOW: to make and Iron Age roundhouse.

 

Today you will be making your very own Iron Age roundhouse suitable for an Iron Age hillfort. Work though the power point, remind yourself of the plan you did before half term and then you can get creative and construct your very own!

 

You will need to go on a scavenger hunt before you start constructing your roundhouse. Don't forget to use your plan that you created before half term to guide you on the materials and resources that you intended to use. 

 

Top tip: Get everything you need (materials, resources and tools) ready before you start building.

 

You can print and use the template below if you wish to, although I would like you to have a go at building the roundhouse from scratch if you can. When completing this task you do have to be resilient - it's not meant to be easy! In the past children have used the template for the base and roof of the roundhouse but then have added natural resources to it to make it look more authentic. 

 

You may want to build a large scale version first with your family in your garden to get an idea of the structure and how your roundhouse will be secured together.

 

REMEMBER: All Iron Age roundhouses would have been build out of natural materials. Before half term you planned how you would build your roundhouse and you should have chosen the resources you aimed to use. Iron Age people would have mainly used natural resources such as sticks (bendy sticks are good for the structure of small scale roundhouses), clay, mud, hay, straw, water etc. You may need to use other non-natural resources such as glue and celotape and that is fine.

 

Top tip: bendy sticks are great for securing other parts of the roundhouse together.
