Term 5 Week 5 18th May 2020
Hello! We have arrived at the last week of term. This weeks suggested tasks consist of the normal activities and extra ones. As next week is half-term some of you might want to keep busy with the extra activities provided in this blog.
Maths this week is focusing on fractions again. Please see Summer term – Week 5 (w/c 18th May) for the videos and the worksheets which will be attached at the bottom of this section of the blog. The lessons are unit and non-unit fractions, making a whole, tenths and counting in tenths. Please watch the videos before attempting the worksheets. As you can see White Rose is giving you links to additional videos if you have already completed the fractions work. Those links will focus on addition and subtraction. I will also attach the worksheets for those additional tasks at the bottom of the blog. Don’t forget to give the fractions section on Mathletics a go too.
The link below is for the Talk 4 Writing work, well done if you have already finished it.
Spellings this week focuses on root words again, this time they are ‘scop’ and ‘spect’. I have also attached a ‘Letter Tiles Spelling’ activity sheet to complete alongside learning your spellings if you wish. Let me know what scores you get!
Thank you to everyone who has completed their countries project. I have been able to give out lots of house points for these. Please keep emailing in your finished projects so I can give out even more house points!
The additional task I am going to set for the next two weeks is a Science task. Right at the start of the academic year, we looked at forces and magnets. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/znmmn39 This link takes you to BBC bitesize where there are videos about pushes and pulls, friction and resistance, gravity, magnets and floating and sinking. Please watch these, and learn about each different force and magnet. You can watch the class clips if wanted, but the main videos are the ones that ask questions. From here I would like you to choose one of these to focus on. How you learn more about it, is entirely up to you. You could do some research, carry out an experiment or both! Please send in emails to let me know what you get up to.
Lastly, I wanted to draw your attention to some videos on the Home Learning - Overview - Home School - Handwriting. Mrs Cook created some videos for Reception to continue to work on their Kinetic Letters. I would recommend that all Year 3 should try and practise their handwriting. It's good to remember what you have done and not lose any of that lovely formation that you all worked so hard on.
Keep in contact with me on the firstname.lastname@example.org email. There will be no new learning next Monday but keep letting me know how you are getting on and have a great week.
