Term 6 Week 3 15th June 2020
I have set some tasks on Mathletics on converting measurements as two of the White Rose lessons this week are on measurements.
I have created a Mathletics Blog to celebrate the whole school's successes on Mathletics. I will announce the top 10 participators in the whole school and the child, who has achieved the most points, in each year group.
We have 4 White Rose lessons this week. A Friday Family Challenge will be uploaded on Friday. The challenge gets increasingly difficult, all the way up to KS3 and 4 maths. Below is the link to the lessons and teaching slides:
I have attached the worksheets for these lessons at the bottom of this post.
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 (check out the Year 6 Blog to see how much we managed to complete at school last week).
Spellings this week are more words that can be nouns and verbs. Try writing each word into a sentence where they function as a noun or a verb to see how it changes the sentences.
This week I have uploaded two chapters of Goodnight Mister Tom, this is so that we can hopefully finish the book before the end of term. I therefore have uploaded chapter 17 & 18, along with the comprehension tasks for each as usual.
I will update the Science activities once I have taught them at school and know how much we have got through.
Lesson 4 - I have attached the Power Point for this lesson. You will need two slices of bread and two plastic bags to complete the investigation. We worked our way through the Power Point and activity one (Helpful or Harmful sheet) identified whether the micro organisms are helpful or harmful. We then completed the plan for our investigation (Mould Investigation).
Lesson 5 - I have attached the Power Point which led our lesson. We took a walk around the school grounds looking for animals and plants which we noted on the 'notes page for field study' and then completed the 'Field guide' in class.
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 informed me of each attempt and I will update the house point totals.
Find below a grid with some suggested tasks for our KS2 topic of Minibeasts.
