Make some calculations by choosing from the numbers below. The calculations can be multiplying a 2-digit number x 2-digit number, a 3-digit number x a 2-digit number or a 4-digit number x a 2-digit number. We expect to see you try at least 5 calculations.

(e.g. 53×35, 564 x 28, 2099 x 14)

14 243 2640

35 176 7403

53 564 3007

67 480 2099

28 541 8415

**Reading diaries**

While you are reading at home, here are a few more ideas of things you could write in your diary:

1) find a word you don’t the meaning of and write down its definition

2) find a passage of description and write down the descriptive words or phrases used so that you can use them in your writing

3) describe one of the characters

4) explain why you like or don’t like the book

5) describe the setting where the story takes place

**Times tables**

Remember to keep practising your times tables please. You must know them all by the end of Year 6 and you need them to help with lots of different aspects of Maths. The sooner you know them, the easier (and quicker Maths will become).

**Due in Wednesday 20th September.**
