Hello to everyone working from home this week! We miss you!
Here you will find your maths and English activities for the week as well as some science work on electricity and a music activity.
Monday will be VIPERS as usual. We are starting the story of Romulus and Remus.
Monday is the start of our perimeter topic. During this lesson, we will be counting the sides of all the outside squares to calculate the perimeter.
Tuesday is some work on homophones. Work through the slides and put in the correct spelling of the homophone for each sentence.homophones pdf
Tuesday’s lesson is all about adding given lengths to calculate the total perimeter of rectilinear shapes.
Wednesday – Mrs Kenth would like you to put your facts that you found out about Pompeii into a newspaper article.
Think about –
- What the title of your newspaper is going to be.
- What your headline is going to be.
- What your first paragraph (orientation) is going to include. This needs to be a short summary of the article.
- What facts and opinions your other paragraphs will include
- Include a picture and a caption.
- Include different starters to your sentences like adverbials and prepositions
- Newspaper template Success criteria newspaper reports
Wednesday involves using known facts to calculate missing lengths before working out the perimeter of shapes.
Thursday – Mrs Kenth would like you to select a picture from the choices given and choose what you want to write about it. Think about the difference genres we have learnt about – diary entry, story, and newspapers. You can choose which piece of writing you complete and which picture it links to. I am looking for you to be creative and apply the different things we have learnt about in your writing.Volcanoes writing prompts
Thursday builds upon the week’s learning by moving on to solving perimeter problems.
Friday – Mrs Kenth would like you to do spellings. Please practice these spellings – fruit, grammar, group, guard, guide, heard, heart, height, history and then complete the homework set on purple mash on apostrophes.
Friday focuses on times table practice.
Next, practise on TTRS.
Finally, give yourself 5 minutes to complete your number club. Number Clubs
In addition to English and maths, here are some music and science work to complete in the afternoons.
Science – I’d like you to match up the picture, title and description of each source of electricity and tell me which one is non-renewable.
Music – listen to ‘Mars’ from Holst’s Planet Suite on YouTube and draw what it makes you feel and think of.
Have a good week and we’ll hopefully see you soon.
Mrs Haydon, Mrs Kenth and Mr Harris
