Good morning 5/6 AA.  You've made it through 6 weeks of home schooling.  Just this week to go until half term and then you can have a week off.  How was your weekend?  Did any of you do anything exciting?  I spent the weekend writing your reports.  I have nearly finished now.  I'm going to tell you again how wonderful you all are.  Keep going with the daily tasks, you are all doing a great job.  Here are your tasks for today:


Click here to go to the BBC Bitesize lesson about multiplying and dividing decimals by 10, 100 and 1000.  There is a video to watch, an interactive activity and then two worksheets.  Please read all the information on the website.  You can access the worksheets on the website or you can click on the files below.


Read the information about Florence Nightingale and then answer the questions.  you can check your work when you have finished using the answer sheet.


Have a look at the images on the hospital ward images file below.  The first one is a painting of how a hospital ward would have looked in Florence Nightingale's time.  The second image is a picture of a hospital ward today.  You need to use the second file (comparing hospitals worksheet) to help you compare the two hospital wards.
