Term 6 Week 5 29th June 2020
I have set some tasks on Mathletics on ratio to coincide with the White Rose Maths lessons this week.
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. Well done to the Year 6s who have made it into the top 10!
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 working our way through the Talk4Writing booklet entitiled Monsters:
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).
This week there are two chapters of Goodnight Mister Tom, and the comprehension work to go with them both. Beware though - chapter 21's another sad one!
Spellings this week are words ending in -ibly. You might even recognise the words this week!
Science - Inheritance and Evolution
I will update the Science activities once I have taught them at school and know how much we have got through.
Lesson 3 - Theory of Evolution. We went through the Power Point and made notes about the scientists as we went. We then sorted the Scientists' theories into the categories at the end of the worksheets (Lesson 3 - Evolutionary Ideas Cards)
Lesson 4 - Evidence of Evolution. Again the provided Power Point helped guide our lesson. We completed activity 1 and 2.
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.
Thank you to everyone who sent in work for the Minibeast project. I am so impressed with what you did and that everyone did something so original! If you are still working on something keep going and send it in.
For those of you who are done we are going to do something different for the last few weeks of school. Children’s Art Week will be running for the next 3 weeks and we would like you to take part. Each week there will be a different theme for you to think about. This week’s theme is The Natural World. You could have a look at the website and some suggested activities but we know how creative you are and that you can think up your own ideas! It could be sketching, painting, sculpture, photography, animation, modelling, textiles, the list is endless! Have a walk about your local area and see what inspires you. Is it the sky, the trees, the animals or the flowers? Or is it the fruit and veg in your kitchen? Maybe you’d like to look at the work of some other artists who have been inspired by the natural world and try to recreate or reimagine something they have done? We will be awarding house points for every child who takes part and the bigger the effort the bigger the reward! It would be great if you could explain a bit about what you have created so we understand where you got your inspiration from.
Remember that I would love to see your work, send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
