Good morning to you all - nearly everyone in Callisto Class has logged on to home learning this week and this makes me very proud of you all - keep up the great effort! Remember when you do visit our Home Learning page sign in using the register.
We are currently in a battle with Oberon on TT Rockstars and need everyone to login, play and earn points to make sure that Callisto class are victorious! At 7.40 this morning the scores were: Oberon 3,578 vs Callisto 4,430 - so it is close and we need all players to help us stay in front. Louis is currently our highest scorer with 1,944 points!
Well done to Nicole, Alexander and Miley who managed to record their reads on the register yesterday - if you didn't please try to let me know how much reading you have done on the register today.
If you are out walking as part of your daily exercise and you walk past the school take a look at the office window and you will see our handprint rainbow that we made in school - check out other windows and let us know on the register how many rainbows you spot! I will add a photo today so everyone can see ours.
Look out for the children who have been awarded a 'Virtual Star Card' at the end of the day - It could be you!
We have completed our first week of Home Learning and everyone has made a fantastic effort!
As we have not had a celebration assembly I am sending a Virtual Star Card to the following children as they have signed in on the register everyday this week. So a special well done to:
Enjoy a well earned break this weekend and check back here on Monday for the next Home Learning installment - take care and stay safe from Miss Betteridge

Today we are learning more about calculating angles. When we are calculating angles we do not need to measure them we need to use what we know to work out what we don't know.
When you look at the Let's Learn pages you can see how each of our friends use a different method to help them work out the angles around a point in a circle. Charles uses his protraction to measure carefully making sure that his measurements add up to 360 degrees. Emma uses a straight line across the circle because she knows each half of the circle must add up to 180 degrees and Ravi uses right angles as each right angle is 90 degrees.
Use what you know to work out the size of the missing angles in Guided Practice and record your thinking in your Home Learning Journal. When you have finished that compete worksheet 5 on pages 55 - 56 in your workbook.
'Lightning never strikes twice'
What sounds could you hear during a thunder storm?
You might be able to think of some onomatopoeia. Record the list as a mind map in your books.
Could you write a paragraph describing what it would be like to be caught in a storm, using some of your ideas from above?
These sentences are more than a little bit boring. How could you improve them? Consider your language choices and the different ways we have learnt to structure sentences. Your aim should be to create tension and a frightening atmosphere.
They were in the windmill. They were frightened. They could hear loud noises. It was dark.
Write the new and improved sentences in your Home Learning Journal.
Yesterday you read Chapter 7 of 'Edge of Extinction' and the ending of the chapter was very tense as Sky and Shawn were in very dangerous situation. Today I would like you to draw a 3 part comic strip showing how Sky and Shawn escaped through the bars at the compound entrance. Top Tip: page 96 will give you lots of clues about what to draw!
Topic - History
Imagine time travel was possible!
Which period of history would you most like to visit and why? You have a whole day to spend in your new time destination… What will you do? Who would you meet? Record your ideas in the form of a postcard from the past. Draw a picture for the front of your postcard showing what it is like in the place you have travelled to and then write a message for for a family member on the back of your postcard describing what it was like to be there for a day.
