The children in school all took photos of their descriptive writing yesterday and I would love to receive some example of writing from home - ask an adult to send a clear photo of the writing you did to email@example.com
Our TT rockstars battle continues over the weekend so if you have some spare time please log on and earn some points for your team.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay safe.
Today is 'Fancy Dress Friday' with Joe - follow the link below to take part in today's physical challenge - a costume is not compulsory!
My world quiz question today is ...
The UK is made up of 4 countries - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - but how many countries are there in the whole world?
Today we will be doing lesson 10 which give us more practice of converting units of time. Today we will be focusing on converting a given number of days into weeks and days - so remember 7 days = 1 week. There is also an element of rounding in our learning today as we are asked to give some answers to the nearest week. When rounding time in the form of days think 1,2 or 3 days round down and 4, 5 or 6 days round up.
Our In Focus task asks us to convert the time it takes different planets to orbit the Sun in days into weeks. Our friends show us how to work this out in the Let's Learn slides by dividing each orbit in days by 7 (the number of days in a week). Eliot, Lulu and Ravi give their answers in weeks and days using different strategies. Which strategy so you prefer? Hannah rounds her answer to the nearest week - can you see how she applied the rule above?
Once you have explored our friends thinking have a go at the Guided Practice questions - remember to show your thinking and record your answers in your Home Learning Journal. When you are ready complete worksheet 10 on pages 117 and 118 of your workbook.
I will post the answers at the bottom of the page - remember you parents may have access to the Maths No Problem Hub where you will find extra support and the answers to all the questions. If you have not got this set up yet ask an adult to email the school office and Mrs Inman will set it up for you.
For Today's writing task you will need a dice - if you do not have a dice at home you can make a set of cards numbered 1-6 and place them face down on the table.
Begin by rolling the dice (or choosing a card) the number you get will give you the main character in your story, roll the dice again (or choose another card) to find out where your story will be set and finally roll the dice for a third time (or pick a third card) to find out what the big problem is in your story.
Once you have all your story elements get writing and see what kind of story you are able to create.
If you want to challenge yourself even further try one of these:
Since the beginning of the year we have read 4 books as a class: Who Let the Gods Out, Viking Boy, The Accidental Secret Agent and Edge of Extinction.
Today I would like you to rank these books in order showing which you enjoyed most and finishing with the one you enjoyed least. Record your book order in your Home Learning Journal by drawing a cover for each book and writing and explanation of why you have placed each book in each position.
Have a go at today's Vocabulary challenge - Kangaroo words
Record each word and the synonym in your Home Learning Journal.
Before you begin today's spelling task take a look at the value of each letter in scrabble.
The value of Spelling = 1 + 3 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 11
Use the scrabble tiles to help you complete the following puzzle:
Topic - Art
Mrs A has been very busy at home creating some great art activities and projects for us to do while we are at home. Below you will find the instructions for a fun activity called 'Take a Line for a Walk' to finish our Home Learning week. Year 6 have already had a go at this task and you can see examples of their pictures on the Oberon class page. Once you have finished your drawing take a picture and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add it to our photo book.
