WB 08.06.20 Week 9
Hello Persevering Pumas!
Welcome to Week 9 of home learning; time is flying by. I hope you've all had a lovely week and managed to spend some time outdoors despite the slight downturn in the weather. Thank you to everyone who sent me an email last week, it was great to hear from so many of you and to see that you'd made a great start to a new half term of home learning. I particularly enjoyed reading the targets and goals that you'd set for yourselves and I know that many of you will work hard to achieve these in the next 6 weeks. Please continue to send me emails and photographs as I love seeing what you've been up to and it's really important that we're able to stay in touch. This week will be continuing with our Anglo-Saxon topic where you will be finding out about Anglo-Saxon villages and being very creative as you make your own! Enjoy your learning and continue to be reflective, effective, determined, resourceful and responsible superheroes.
This week you will be revisiting your work on addition, starting by refreshing your knowledge of the different parts of a place value grid (1's, 10's, 100's and 1000's) and then using the column method of addition to complete calculations with no exchange, with 1 exchange and with more than one exchange. There are four lessons for you to complete this week, along with a challenge on Friday! Each lesson comes with a useful video teaching you the skills and a worksheet for you to complete. You've already completed the lessons posted on the White Rose Hub website this week earlier in lockdown, therefore we are following the alternative resources. So that you aren't confused by this, I've posted all of the videos alongside the worksheets on our class page this week (just below). If you have a printer, feel free to print out the worksheets and stick them into your home learning book. If not, you can simply just write the answers straight into your home learning book instead - it's entirely up to you! We are on Summer Term, Week 7 this week, following the alternative resources. As we are following the alternative resources, the BBC Bitesize resources don't align with our maths work this week.
Please continue to practise your times tables. Use Times Tables Rock Stars for around 15 minutes of practise each day. There aren't any new Mathletics activities to complete this week as you've already completed all of the addition activities earlier this year, however, I would like to congratulate the following pupils who have completed all of their Mathletics activities up to date. If your name isn't on the list, please make sure you complete any outstanding Mathletics activities, many of you only have one or two to complete!
Mathletics Shout Out
A huge well done to Lola, George, Sophia, Lucy, Poppy, Harvey, Hannah, Ava, Naiah and Zach for completing all of your assigned activities on Mathletics.
This week's English is linked to our topic learning. In History this week, you'll be learning about Anglo-Saxon settlements. Linked to this, we'd like you to write a setting description of an Anglo-Saxon town or village. You will describe all that you can see, hear, smell and feel. As well as this, we would like you to log on to Spelling Shed to practise this week's spellings, read a book on Bug Club and the 60 Second Reads, and as always, remember to read your favourite stories at home too!
Your topic work this week continues with our Anglo-Saxon theme as you will be using the video links and information provided to find out about Anglo-Saxon villages and Anglo-Saxon houses, this will give you a better understanding about how the Anglo-Saxons lived. Use the document below to find out what you will need to research, about settlements, villages and houses, and present your findings in a creative way. Your research will also help you to complete the exciting DT project below. In addition to this, you will explore the jobs held by Anglo-Saxons and once you've done a little bit of research on this, you will create a job advert for your chosen Anglo-Saxon job.
As I mentioned above, your DT work this week links directly to the History learning. Once you've completed all of your research about Anglo-Saxon houses and villages and found out more about how the Anglo-Saxons lived, it's time to design and make your very own Anglo-Saxon village. I would like you to be as creative as possible using any resources you can find at home (you may wish to start saving some recycling!) Read the document below to find out more information about the different steps to successfully making your own Anglo-Saxon village. Be creative, have fun and enjoy!
I know that lots of you are still enjoy PE with Joe Wicks, however if you'd like an alternative, have a go at the daily fitness activities below!
