It’s Friday! Who’s got that Friday feeling? Well done for another week of Home Learning – what did you enjoy the most?

Today, I’d like to share a riddle with you to get your brains awake and working this morning:

“Mary has four daughters, and each of her daughters has a brother – how many children does Mary have?”

Have a little think about it and maybe a chat with your family over breakfast or lunch, and then let me know if you think you’ve got it! And remember… keep it to yourself! Get thinking.

Here are some activities from iMoves to keep you busy today and over the weekend.

Here are the top 5 Active Blasts:

Hello everyone. How are you all doing?

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please get in touch with your class teacher. We really do want to hear from you all as regularly as possible.

Here is your learning for today:

Maths

Y3 – Fractions of amounts using bar models: Video lesson and task

Y4 – Video Lesson

Video Lesson

Topic – Parts of a plant part 3

In the Oak academy lesson last week, you looked at parts of a plant. Watch this YouTube video of a flower being taken apart to show all the different parts.

You could have a go at taking apart a lily to see all the different parts of it. However, please be aware that lily pollen is very poisonous to cats. If you have a cat, I would not recommend buying lilies. It is not toxic to humans. Also, the pollen can stain so take care not to get it on your clothes or other materials like curtains, sofas or table cloths.

Task: Have a go at making a flower, labelling its parts. Here are some examples.

You could have a go at making it out of household objects. Here’s one I made. You could test an adult afterwards to see if they can correctly label all the parts!

Or if you have some paper and craft materials handy, you could make it like this:

If you’d like some more practice, or would like to do a different activity, there is a worksheet with the parts to label , and/or a mix and match game you could play.

For the mix and match game, print out the sheets, cut them out then mix them up. Challenge yourself or someone else to match them all up correctly.

Here are your home learning tasks for today. Remember to email your teacher if you have any questions.

Y5 Maths

Starter

Click on the link above for today’s starter.

Your learning today is retrieval based on a book called Cogheart. Here is the video.

You’ll also need this text.

Hi everyone

We hope you’re all happy, healthy and staying safe. We hope you’re all enjoying your home learning, too. The weather is going to be great today so why not get your home learning done nice and early and then try to enjoy the sunshine – if you can do safely (and whilst still observing social distancing).

Recently, someone in my class emailed me to say that they’ve really been enjoying reading. They had the idea that we could ask people for their book recommendations. I think this is a super idea. Send in your recommendations and we’ll post them on the class news section – I’ve heard several people talk about ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class‘ recently.

Here’s your home learning for today…

Y5 Maths

Starter

Use the Topmarks website to play ‘Hit the button.’ Put your times table knowledge to the test.

Multiplying mixed numbers

Y6 Maths

Now that you have recapped different methods for multiplication on Monday and Tuesday, it is time to do battle in Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica. Play all four levels of the Mysterious Mountains of Multiplication.

Today you are going to take your learning into your own hands. Choose an extract from a book, a newspaper article, or perhaps an online news report as your learning base. Once you have chosen this, read through it and create a RIC for others to answer.

If you could assemble your RIC base and questions on some form of word document or PowerPoint, that would be great. If not, that’s not a problem either! If you could email your finished tasks to your teacher, we can use them to share with each other and answer later on in the week. Good luck!

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all feeling happy and healthy today. The way we think and speak can have a positive influence on how we feel and act, so this week, if you feel yourself lacking in motivation, try saying ‘I CAN do it’.

I know it can be difficult to stay motivated at times, but I KNOW that you can do it, so try your best to keep working hard and think positively – YOU CAN DO IT!

To keep your dance moves going, why not try some DISCO! Follow the iMoves video for some ideas. We’d love to see some of your routines

Goosebumps – part 2

Topic – plants

Parts of a plant part 2 (Ready for a song and dance?)

In the last lesson, we mentioned photosynthesis.

1. What does the stomata absorb?
2. Why are plants important?

Task 2: Join in with this song!

Here is a YouTube song to help you learn about photosynthesis. The song words are just underneath, so you can have a go at joining in. If you like dancing, you could have a go at copying the moves, or make up some of your own!

Photosynthesis (song words)

Plants don’t have a mouth like you and me

But they have to eat

so they spread their leaves so green

To capture sunlight’s energy

Plants don’t have a nose like you and me

But they have to breathe, did you know their leaves so green can take in air and make it clean

That’s photosynthesis, photosynthesis ….

Plants can’t hold a cup like you and me

But they have to drink

So they push their roots deep down

To soak up water from the ground.

Plants don’t wear green hats or shirts or jeans

So why are they green

It’s because all plants are filled

With green stuff we call chlorophyll. Chlorophyll?

Chlorophyll is a green pigment or colour found in plants. It helps them trap light and without it there’d be no …… photosynthesis, photosynthesis, photosynthesis

Plants can make their own food from sunlight water and air so cool

That’s because all plants are filled with green stuff we call chlorophyll

That’s photosynthesis, photosynthesis, photosynthesis, photosynthesis

That’s photosynthesis, photosynthesis, photosynthesis, photosynthesis
