13 July 2020: Home learning

Sunday 12 July 2020

Good morning.

We hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and that you got up to some nice things. Maybe send your class teacher an email this week before the summer holiday starts – tell us what you’ve been up to.

Here is your learning for today…

Year 5 Maths

Starter

Click on the link above for today’s starter. This game allows you to practice your rounding skills. Select the option that you feel confident with. If you would like a challenge – try out the decimal numbers.

Your learning for today is about translation. This first lesson goes over the learning you will have done in year 4.

Year 6 Maths

Before starting your main lesson, take 15 minutes to sharpen your times tables skills on Times Tables Rockstars.

This next lesson will teach you have to calculate and represent ratio.

Year 5/6 Reading

Today is our read for pleasure lesson. Choose a book, magazine, newspaper or perhaps an online article to read for your own pleasure. If you have recently read something that you have particularly enjoyed, you could write a book review to recommend it to others. Think about what information is useful to the reader in a review.

Year 5/6 Art

Your learning today is all about art. Graffiti is one of my favourite styles of art. It is controversial and, in some cases, illegal but I love the style of it. I also love how it often tackles issues in society. One famous graffiti artist is Banksy.

Today, I’d like you to read this information about Banksy and then have a go at creating your own piece of art – remember to link it to an issue in society.

Send your class teacher your finished masterpieces.
