Good morning everyone - I hope you have had a wonderful Easter break and been able to enjoy some of the lovely sunshine with your families. 

 

We will be continuing with home learning for a few more weeks so I will be adding new learning to our page each day for you to complete in your home learning Journal.  Remember to present you work neatly, underline dates and tiles and use your best joined handwriting when completing tasks.

 

A big thank-you to Alexander, Nicole and Manerva who have all sent pictures of their fantastic home learning.  You can send photos of the things you have been doing or examples of your work using our class email - callisto@studleygreen.wilts.sch.uk.  I will add these to our class photobook so your friends can see just what you have been doing.

PE

 

If like me you have enjoyed some delicious Easter eggs during the holidays then a Joe Wicks workout is a great way to get active and start your day - follow the link below to find today's workout.

Maths

 

Begin your session by playing TT Rockstars for 10 minutes to practise your number facts - if you cannot access the site use your times table book to practice your multiplication facts for 7.

 

Today we start a new chapter in our workbooks on the topic of measure.  In chapter 11 we are learning about how to convert units of measures.  Look at the knowledge organiser below to see how using your knowledge of multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 can help you in your learning.  

 

Work through the Let's learn slides to see how our friends converted measurements into mm and cm.  Look at the Guided Practice page and try to answer the questions in your Home Learning Journal.  If you cannot print the page to measure the triangle try to draw your own triangle that measures 4cms, 5cms and 7.5cms. 

 

When you have finished the textbook pages complete worksheet 1 on pages 99 and 100 of your workbook.  

 

Your parents received access to the Maths No Problem hub through parentmail last week and this will enable them to find the answers when you have completed your work.  If you do not have this yet I will post the answers on tomorrows page.

The Greatest Library

English

 

Today I would like you to start thinking about ideas for your own story about 'The Greatest Library' using the image above and the following questions:

 

 

Question time!

How is this library different from a normal library?

What are you favourite types of books?

If you could choose for one of your books to come alive, which one would it be and why?

If you could be a character in a book, who would you like to be?

If you were to borrow every single book from your local library, would it still be a library?

In your opinion, what makes a good book? Can you come up with a top three favourite authors as a class?

 

Extra Challenge: write 3 questions of your own and send them to me using the daily register or the class email and I will publish them for your friends to answer.

 

Reading

 

Read the text below and try to answer the questions using the information from the text.  You do not need to write the questions out just the answers - but remember to answer each question in a full sentence.

Topic - Science

 

In Term 2 we learnt about the Earth, Sun and Moon.  Today I would like your to create a simple sundial somewhere outside and investigate the shadows it makes throughout the day.

 

You will need:

A piece thin card (an old cereal box is ideal)

A pencil or paint brush

Some coloured pencils or felt tip pens

 

What to do:

Open up your box so you have a flat piece of card.

Draw around a plate to make a circle shape and cut it out.

Ask an adult to help you make a hole in the centre of your circle.

Place your pencil or paintbrush into the hole.

Take your sundial outside. You may meed to use some tape or small stones to make sure it doesn't blow away in the breeze as you must mark the shadow from the same place each time you visit your sundial.

 

Your task is to go outside every hour and mark the new shadow on your sundial - Mark each shadow using a different colour.  Even if the sun is behind a cloud you should still be able to see a faint shadow - if not wait until the sun is out again to mark your next shadow.   You will need to make sure you do not hide the shadow with your own body shadow - so position yourself carefully.  If you can, also measure the length of each shadow you mark and record on your sundial.

 

In your Home Learning Journal think about the following questions -

What do you notice? 

How do the shadows change? 

Why does this happen?
