## Maths

Task One: A mixture of measurement questions using a ruler and reading scales for mass (the weight of objects) and liquid. We had a look at this earlier in the year.

Task Two (optional): This task is a bit more challenging and is a mixture of year three and a bit of year four learning. You have to change measurements from one unit to another and sometimes use a decimal point. Have a go and see how you get on! This learning will continue next year.

How to convert between units of measurement:

Change between centimetres and metres: there are 100 centimetres in 1 metre – 100cm = 1m or 1m = 100cm

Therefore 1.2 metres is 120cm and 140cm is 1.4 metres.

Change between millimetres and centimetres: there are 10 millimetres in 1 centimetre : 10mm = 1cm or 1cm = 10mm

Therefore 44mm is 4.4cm and 2.6cm is 26mm

## English

Below are some pictures of Stone Age artifacts that have been found. Begin to plan a newspaper report to tell people about the discovery.

Key questions:

What has been found? When was it found? Where was it found? Who found it? Why is it an important discovery and worth reading about?

Are you going to include a picture with a caption? Was anyone there at the time and told you about it? What did they say?

## Topic
