Term 6 Week 5 29th June 2020
I have set you some work on Mathletics on drawing, measuring and calculating angles this coincides with the White Rose Maths lessons this week.
You will need an angle measurer (protractor), if you do not have one of these at home you could print a small one off at home and use this. Even though it won't be transparent you will be able to see where the angle leaves the angle measurer.
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 all the Year 5s who have managed to make 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.
I have attached the worksheets for these lessons at the bottom of this post.
Please continue to work through the Talk4Writing booklets, these can both be downloaded in Week 1 and Week 4.
I have uploaded two chapters of Goodnight Mister Tom this week, along with the comprehension tasks. Be prepared, chapter 21 is another sad one!
Spellings this week are challenge words, you should recognise these from the Year 5/6 Spelling mats!
I will still be accepting any tasks completed from the Science Bingo half term activity sheet. Please see that blog post for updates on tasks and house points if you do complete and submit any.
Thank you to everyone who sent in work for the Minibeast project. If you are still working on something keep going and send it in, it doesn’t matter if it’s a bit late!
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.
And finally, PE! The children who are in school will be spending lots of time outside and I hope you can do the same. Northamptonshire Sport 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 on the Virtual School Games website, Facebook or Twitter at 10am on Monday morning and then have a go at home. 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 Miss Sadler of each attempt and she will update the house point totals.
