Excellence through Effort & Enjoyment
Be Kind…Be Safe…Be Responsible

Term 6 Week 1 1st June 2020

Maths

I have set some tasks on Mathletics, however some of you may have already completed these tasks as we are re-covering fractions, decimals and percentages this week.

We have 4 White Rose lessons this week. Below is the link to the lessons and teaching slides:

I have attached the worksheets for these lessons at the bottom of this post.

I will return to giving house points for the top 5 participators on Mathletics this week. 

English

We are going to complete another Talk4Writing unit, this time we have picked The City of Silence, which you can find here:

In school we will be aiming to complete one activity from it per day. Some activities will take longer than others.

Spellings this week are word families based on showing how words are related in form and meaning. Remember it is just as important to be able to use these words in context, you could try writing them into sentences whilst you are leaning the spellings.

I have also uploaded the next chapter of Goodnight Mister Tom, along with the comprehension tasks. You may want to complete the tasks or just read each chapter as they are uploaded.

Science

We have started our unit on Living Things and Their Habitats. This week we looked at classifying animals. We looked through the Power Point, together we were taxonomists and classified the animals into 16 groups.

PE

Northamptonshire Virtual School Games

The Northamptonshire Virtual School Games has begun and we will be joining schools from all over the county in taking part in a series of weekly sporting challenges over the next couple of months.

All you need to do is watch the challenge videos once they are released Virtual School Games website (www.northamptonshiresport.org/school-games), Facebook or Twitter at 10am Monday morning and then have a go at home or school.

Once you have completed the challenges, log your attempts as many times as you complete them on the Virtual School Games website. For every challenge logged, the school earns Participation Points which are then used to crown the weekly champions. You can also upload your photos and videos attempting the challenges for the chance to win prizes for yourself as well.

As an extra incentive 20 house points will be awarded for each attempt. Northamptonshire Sport will inform me of each attempt and I will update the house point totals.
