Hello children!

We hope that you are all feeling happy and healthy today.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed their teacher so far this week.  If you have any questions or problems to ask your teacher,  then please let us know – we are here to help you! It might just be a quick email to say hello, or a photo of your learning.

The weather has cooled down a bit since the weekend and we’ve had some rain. Here are some spider-man inspired yoga (13 mins) exercises you can do inside your house.

If you like Ant and Dec, and David Walliams then you can watch them today on the NSPCC website at 9:30am (or on NSPCC facebook page).

Maths

Y3 – RIC : fractions

Times tables: At the beginning of the week, we asked you to focus on your 3x tables. Even if it’s just 5 minutes a day, the regular practice really helps you to remember your multiplication facts. How have you been getting on? Here are 40 questions. Challenge your speed – 3x tables 5 min challenge

Y4 – Strengthen your problem solving skills with these 2 ‘square’ problems:

Square of numbers

Domino square

Times tables: At the beginning of the week, we asked you to focus on your 12x tables. Even if it’s just 5 minutes a day, the regular practice really helps you to remember your multiplication facts. How have you been getting on? Here are 40 questions. Challenge your speed – 12x tables 5 min challenge

In class, we’d usually have a Love of Reading session each week where we read something that we love. Adults use the time to read with children.
Today, I’d like you to…
 Get really comfy: wear some thick socks, a dressing gown or wooly jumper. Sit somewhere soft and relaxing.
 Turn all electronic devices off: TVs, radios, computers, phones, tablets etc.
 Spend some quality time reading with each other. Read aloud, take it in turns, put on voices for characters, re-read things to improve how you’re reading them. Talk about what you’re reading. Which are the best bits? Why? Does it remind you of other things you’ve read or watched? Do you know anything about parts of it from other knowledge that you have? What do you think of the characters? What will happen next? Why do you think that?

Topic DT – Design a room
Could you design and make a model room? What a fun activity!
Watch the clip of the designer making a mini version of a room. You could use an old box or cut up a cereal packet to make the shape of your room. It doesn’t have to be same measurements as the designer on the screen. Use what you have. You could decorate the model room using old paper, wall paper, magazines, paint or crayons – use what you have. You could make the furniture from items ready for recycling or even Lego bricks. Be creative!

Have fun and send a photo of your model to your teacher.

Starter

Click on the link above to practice your multiplication skills with Mrs H.

Your learning today is about volume. This will involve reading scales to measure volume. As usual there is a short quiz first and then the video lesson. Remember you can pause the video whenever you like, or skip it back in case you need something repeating.

Monday’s lesson

Year 6 Maths

Oh no! Mr Lindsay and Miss Greaves are stuck in the school. They can’t remember the passcode to the door. Watch their video and help them escape.

This week, we are going to focus on jobs and money. For today’s task, complete the jobs worksheet – this will help you develop ideas that you can use later on in the week. Here are some questions to help you.

Although this task will significantly help you later in the week, it is not particularly a reading task! On top of this, I would like you to research and read about your dream job. Create a list of requirements you would need for this job, along with some reasons as to why you think people might want to do it as a career choice.

Jobs Worksheet

Year 5/6 Topic

In this lesson you will learn what goes into making a good computer game and try making your own simple game.

Complete this BBC Bitesize lesson.

Hi children,
Today is the last week of this half term! You’ve done it!

Well done for all of your hard work, effort and for keeping going during this ‘temporary strange’.
Enjoy half term – there will be some optional learning challenges that you can take part in. Why not create a  Jar of Happiness?

Make sure that you take the time to rest and enjoy this time with your  families.

Take care and stay safe,
Team 3,4

We know that you love this reading session at school so your task today is to grab a book, find a comfortable spot and read! Have fun and enjoy reading. Share your book with a sibling or an adult, if you’d like to.

Hello children.

Tomorrow is VE day. We have some activities planned for you tomorrow, and all your learning will be linked to the VE day celebrations in some way. You may have some ideas for celebrating this day at home already. Please let us know what you will be doing, or send your teacher a photo of what you did.

Keeping active: What is your super move of the day?

Maths Y3 and Y4

As tomorrow’s tasks will be slightly different due to the bank holiday, we’ll have our challenges day today instead. Here’s a link to another four problems from BBC Bitesize.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zd3q2sg

How many of them will you conquer? Answers are on the link too but suggested workings out will be posted tomorrow. Here are some things to remember when approaching each challenge. Given the content, Challenge 4 might be more accessible to Year 4 than Year 3.

Top Tips – Challenge 1:

Read the text carefully to avoid falling into traps. Think about what ‘half’ means and for the second part in particular, think about ‘half’ isn’t.

Top Tips – Challenge 2

Take time to understand the information that has been given. Bar modelling would help with this.

Top Tips – Challenge 3:

This is quite a long problem. Breaking it down into smaller chunks and showing your working will help you to avoid mistakes.

Top Tips – Challenge 4:

You are asked to find two ways but can you find all solutions? Think about how you might approach this systematically (in order).  It’s useful to remember that 1000ml = 1l .

## Year 5,6 Quiz of the Week!

Posted on Friday 01 May 2020 by Mr Catherall

This week, we’ve decided to end the week with a little bit of fun. So, we’ve made a video quiz of the week. Check it out here.

It’s a mix of general knowledge, a recap of some previous learning and a bit of fun! We’re hoping you’ll play along as a family, or maybe against other families and will enjoy 10 mins of trivia and silliness.

If you like it, get in touch and we’ll do a weekly edition published every Friday.

Enjoy!
