WB 13.07.20 Week 14
Hello Persevering Pumas!
Congratulations to you all for working incredibly hard this year despite the unusual and very unprecedented times we have encountered. Even though you've been learning at home, you've all impressed we with your dedication, determination and resourcefulness towards your learning. It has been my absolute pleasure to teach you all this year and I look forward to welcoming you back to school in September and teaching many of you again. As it is the final week of term, this is the final week of home learning before you enjoy a well-deserved summer holiday and take time to relax, spend time with your families and enjoy yourselves at home before returning to school. If you'd like to join in with our final Zoom of the year on Thursday afternoon, please ask your adult to let me know and I'll send the link across to you.
The home learning this week includes maths, English and using computing resources to summarise the learning you've completed on the Anglo-Saxons topic over the past 2 half terms. As always, if you have any questions please send me an email and also use our tier group email address to update me with your learning. I hope that you enjoy your final week of home learning and have an incredible summer!
This week's maths learning is based around the topic of symmetry, position and coordinates. 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. All videos for this week can be found on the White Rose Hub website using the link below and the worksheets can be downloaded directly from our class page (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 12 this week.
Please continue to practise your times tables. Use Times Tables Rock Stars for around 15 minutes of practise each day. It is especially important that you continue to improve your recall speed of your times tables as you will rely on this knowledge heavily in Year 5.
This week, I have assigned 3 new Mathletics activities for your to complete, linking to the topic of 'Position & Direction'. I would like to congratulate the following pupils who have completed all of their Mathletics activities up to date (until the three new activities were added this week). If your name isn't on the list, please make sure you complete any outstanding Mathletics activities as well as the three new activities.
Mathletics Shout Out
A huge well done to Lola, George, Angelina, Poppy and Ava for completing all of your assigned activities on Mathletics.
This week, our English learning is linked to our topic as we'll be writing a non-chronological report about the Anglo-Saxons. You will consolidate all your previous learning when writing your report and activities have been assigned on Education City for you to work through. 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 complete the Reading Comprehension - 60 Second Reads, and as always, remember to read your favourite stories at home too!
History & Computing
To summarise the end of your Anglo-Saxons topic, we have combined your history learning with your computing learning this week. We would like you to look back on the Anglo-Saxon learning you have completed over the past 10 weeks and collate this together in a presentation using a piece of computer software or tablet application. Think carefully and creatively about how best to present your new-found knowledge, home learning and photographs from across the Anglo-Saxon topic to teach others about this interesting and important period of history.
