Hello everyone and welcome to our final day of Home Learning this term. A special hello to Alexander and Manerva and just like you Weronika I am missing everyone too.
Please remember to sign in using the daily register and let me know what tasks you have particularly enjoyed over the past two weeks. Remember to add the number of daily reads you have done if you did not manage to add it yesterday.
Below is the start of our 'Home Learning Photo Book' - if you can send us some photos or examples of your learning and I will add it to our page so you can see what everyone has been doing. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
A huge well done to everyone who took part in our TT Rockstars battle - we did we won! Can you work out the difference between out scores?
I hope you all have a fantastic Easter break - if you are looking for activities to keep you busy while we are all keeping safe at home then take a look at the Holiday Homework Challenge at the bottom of today's page.
Take care everyone and stay safe - I hope to see you all really soon

Today we are learning about Successive Reflections this means reflections that follow on from each other. So we begin by making a reflection and then when we have a new shape we reflect it again. You can record your answers for Let's Learn 2 and the Guided Practice questions in your Home Learning Journal if you like - please remember to present your learning neatly.
You can see this in Let's Learn 1 where the blue trapezium has been reflected over a vertical line and is shown as a green trapezium. The reflected co-ordinates are written below the grid.
In Let's Learn 2 you can see a successive reflection as the green trapezium is reflected across the horizontal line creating the orange trapezium. Can you write the new co-ordinates for the orange trapezium?
In Guided Practice 1 you are asked to reflect one point of a polygon. If X is reflected in the vertical line where will in be positioned? Remember to count the squares up to the vertical line and then the same number past it to find the position - What co-ordinate will it be? his point is then reflected in the horizontal line - What co-ordinate will it be now?
In Guided Practice 2 there are two questions to answer about the successive reflection of a triangle in the horizontal line. Start by counting squares to reflect the triangle in the red horizontal line - Can you write the co-ordinates of the new triangle? Then reflect the triangle again in the green horizontal line - Can you write the co-ordinates of the final image? Can you describe the movement using your knowledge of translation?
Once you have worked through the slides have a go at worksheet 5 on pages 86 and 87 of your workbook.
Today I would like you to write a story using the 'Disappearing World' image we looked at yesterday. The questions you answered and the sick sentences that you improved will have already got you thinking about ideas to develop your narrative.
You can use the story starter that you have been given below or you could begin the story in your own words which would be a more challenging task - you choose!
Remember to use your word mat to help you with your sentence structure, grammar and punctuation and re-read your story to check for sense.
I would love to see you trying to
build atmosphere by choosing words carefully i.e. tip-toe creates a different image than walk
use figurative language carefully to help the reader imagine the scene or character
include techniques such as flashbacks (remembering past events) or foreshadowing (hinting at things to come)
Piece by piece, the street was disappearing.
In the distance a portal shone, sending soft, golden beams of light out across the evening sky. As the light kissed the clouds they blushed, becoming pink illuminations that stood and watched the street below like nosey spectators.
All that was now left of the street was the door. It was still open. There was still time. The figure in the distance began to run, but was he too late?
Today I would like you to imagine that you were with Sky and Shawn as they escaped the compound.
Write the journal entry of your day including some of the key events from chapter 8.
Send your journal entry to me using the class email address and we can publish them on the class web page for your friends to read.
Follow the link below to practice spelling some of the words from the year 5 and 6 word list.
Click on the spelling tiles page, which is free to access, and try spelling some of our focus words using 'Segment Puzzle'
If you are unable to access the site practice spelling the words below, show how each word can be broken into syllables and use each word in a sentence.
Look at the challenge card below - how many words can you create by combining adjoining letters. Challenge yourself further by giving yourself a time limit or by playing against someone else at home.
I tried it and set myself a time limit of 5 minutes my score was '46' and I managed to find one 6 letter word - Can you beat me?
Topic - Music
Making Music with Water
Have you ever tried making music with glasses or bottles filled with water? I bet you favourite band hasn't. Experiment with your own special sounds by turning glasses of water into instruments, make some cool music and find out how it works.
What you'll need:
If you have and food colouring or paint at home try colouring the water. Can you describe what you see?
Can you find a way to record the tune you have created?
It is fantastic to see that some of you have logged in to 'YUMU' our online music school - if you haven't already logged in use the details in your home learning pack to visit the website and take a look at our online lessons - you could get someone to video you rapping to our song and send it to me using the class email. I would love to see how you are getting on!
