Week beginning: Thursday 26th March 2020
Good afternoon everyone
We hope you are keeping well. Next week is the final week before Easter. We will set enough work for tomorrow (Friday), Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. As Thursday 2nd April would normally be your Easter holiday, we won't set any tasks for that day.
We hope you have been keeping up with your work. Try not to fall behind as when we return we will pick up where we would naturally be and we will assume you have been completing the work set. Please do feel free to send us any work or pictures of things you have done. We will reply to all emails sent to the class email. We can only monitor Starz and not reply, so if you have any questions then please do message us on the email address.
Anyway, back to work. These are the things we would like you to complete this week. You will have four days.
Maths - Please complete the blank times table grid that we have attached. You should do this independently. Please ask someone to mark it when you have done. It does not need to be completed under timed conditions. Then we would like you to complete a times table test every day. These are attached. Do this without the grid and then use the grid to mark your work. Take your time and do it carefully. There is no rush.
English - Complete homophones 1 sheet. Please see above some lessons on persuasive writing. You may want to leave some of the activities provided, but I feel these are fairly accessible with support.
Guided Reading - Choose a book that you know well. Complete one of the following activities related to your book.
- Write a list of three questions that you would like to ask the writer or a character from the story.
- Make a WANTED poster for the villain in your story. Include a physical description and a reward for information.
- Which character from the book do you think you are most like? Explain your answer.
Science - Find pictures of the following animals and research three facts about each: Jaguar, sloth, toucan, orang-utan, anteater, tarantula.
Mrs Wordsmith - Write two sentences for each word: Peer, sleepless, remote.
R.E - Buddhists teach that we should act wisely and compassionately. Look up these words and discuss their meaning with an adult. Draw two pictures that show how you have acted with wisdom and then with compassion.
P.E - Try one of Joe Wicks' free online PE workouts! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
Geography - Find a picture of the Amazon rainforest and place it in the centre of a page. Write facts about the Amazon rainforest around the picture. Think about where it is, how big it is, the temperature and weather and any animals that live there. This links to your science work, so it might be a good idea to do science before geography.
History- We are now at the end of our Maya topic. I would like you to show some of your knowledge of the topic, by creating a piece of work of your choice that is related to the Maya. This can be a PowerPoint presentation, a recipe, a sculpture, a fact file. It is completely up to you, providing you can explain something that you have taken away from the topic within your piece of work.
Any questions then do get in touch. We will send a quick message next week, but we won't set any work.
Our thoughts are with you.
Mrs Causer and Miss Miller
English - Complete the first Grammar Hammer check that is in your home learning pack. Check your answers on the answer sheet and revise one of the areas that you struggled with most.
