Good Morning Oberon
Today is your last day of home learning before half term. I hope you all have a wonderful break, stay safe.
Visit Joe Wicks' YouTube channel and complete his daily PE session, remember you can do the recordings if you aren't doing this at 9am so there's no excuses!
Here's the link:
Task 1: Can you identify the numbers I am thinking of?
Your aim is to make a cross shape like the ones in the image where the numbers across add up to make the same total as the numbers going down.
The left cross in the image is not a magic cross because the totals are different.
The cross on the right is a magic cross:
4 + 1 + 3 = 8
5 + 1 + 2 = 8
Both answers are 8, when both answers are the same we call it a magic cross.
Cut a piece of paper into 5 pieces, write the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the pieces so that you have digit cards that you can move around easily.
Record any possibilities in your journal by writing the cross in there.
There are lots of possibilities - how many can you find?
Write an explanation of how you worked to find the answers - did you move the cards randomly, or did you develop a strategy?
Be patient, you might need to play around a little to find some answers but all of you can add 1 digit numbers so the Maths isn't too tricky for anybody!
Using your ideas from yesterday, write a story based on the image below. You can use the story starter if you wish, but if you have your own ideas of how you'd like your story to start then that's fine too.
This place had once been filled with noise, thousands upon thousands of excited fans cheering as they applauded ‘the beautiful game’ being played in front of them.
Now, all that remained were memories. Would this place ever be restored to its former glory?
Choose any book and spend 20 minute reading for pleasure - remember there are books available at school if you have finished your home readers and would like something different to read.
In school last week, I had some lovely conversations at play time with some of the younger children who were telling me what jobs they want to do when they grow up.
Think about what job you would like to do. Draw a picture of somebody in that job and write a fact file about what you think the job would involve. You might want to ask your parents or do some research online about what the jobs entail - if you're researching online remember everything we have taught you about online safety!
You could do this one tonight or over the holiday. I'd like you to do some cooking at home! This could be helping your parents to make dinner, preparing breakfast or baking. Make sure you have adult supervision in the kitchen at all times and do not do this task without your parents' permission.
I'm not going to give you a recipe because I don't know which ingredients you all have available, ask your parents for some ideas or look in recipe books/online for different options.
