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 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

Your spellings this week are words the letter string 'ough'. Remember that it is just as important to be able to use these words in sentences as well as being able to spell them. So if you are finding them tricky, find out the definitions and try writing them into different sentences.

For English this term we are going to begin with a new Talk 4 Writing booklet "Meet the Rhi-swano-zeb-tah". It uses one of my favourite picture books, 'Where the Wild Things Are" so hopefully you will enjoy this scheme, and I look forward to seeing all the things you create.

I will also still be uploading the next chapter of Goodnight Mister Tom each week, along with the comprehension tasks. You may want to complete these or just read the chapters as they are uploaded. I am really enjoying this story and I hope you are too.

In school, the Year 5 and other Key Stage 2 Key Worker children will be doing a brand new story as their class novel, The Ickabog by J.K. Rowling.  This story is being released completely free, online if you follow the link below.  There is also an illustration competition running which is linked on the website and open until the 17thJuly.  This is a chance to have your drawing included in the book when it is printed later this year which would be amazing!  Let me know if you have a go and I'd love to hear what you think about the book. I am going to try to read it too.

Your countries projects last term were fantastic, and I loved reading them all and learning about some new places.  This term we are setting a project all about minibeasts.  Mr Wilson has created a guidance page with lots of different activities that you could do to develop your knowledge and skills in this area.  The grid is attached below and please send me through what you have been doing by 1st July.

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.
