WB 22.06.20 Week 11
Hello Persevering Pumas!
Welcome to Week 11 of Home Learning! Only 4 weeks to go before you can enjoy the Summer Holidays! I hope that you've all had a lovely weekend and you're looking forward to spending some time outdoors in the glorious sunshine we're due to have this week. It was fantastic to see so many of you on Zoom this week, I really enjoyed catching up with you and finding out about what you've been up to throughout lockdown. If anybody else would like to join our calls this week, please ask your adult to send me a quick email and I'll add you into one of the groups. This weeks learning continues with our Anglo-Saxon theme, where you will find out about Anglo-Saxon food and drink. You will learn that bread is especially important to the Anglo-Saxons and the DT Cooking activities give you the opportunity to make your own Anglo-Saxon bread - delicious! As always, please continue to send in pictures of your learning and any questions you have via email. Have a great week, enjoy your learning and have lots of fun in the sun!
This week's maths learning begins by looking at estimating and checking answers to addition and subtraction questions before moving onto the topic of 'Money' towards the end of the the week. 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 first two lessons posted on the White Rose Hub website this week earlier in lockdown, therefore we are following the alternative resources for these lessons. So that you aren't confused by this, I've posted the videos to these two lessons alongside the worksheets on our class page this week (just below). For lessons 3 and 4, you are able to return to using the White Rose Hub website to access the videos, the link to this is posted 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 9 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 'Money'. 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, Sophia, Lucy, Evie H, Poppy, Evie J, Naia, Harvey, Ellie, Hannah, Ava, Naiah, Maisie, Zach and Ellen for completing all of your assigned activities on Mathletics.
This week’s writing task is connected to our topic learning. In History and DT this week, you will be learning about Anglo-Saxon food and drink. Linked to this, I would like you to write a set of instructions on how to make bread (Anglo-Saxon or modern-day equivalent). Once you've made your bread and eaten it, have a go at writing a set of instructions, which another child or an adult would be able to follow to make their own Anglo-Saxon or modern-day bread. 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!
The History learning this week continues with the Anglo-Saxon theme and you will be finding out about what the Anglo-Saxons ate and drank. We know that the Supermarkets weren't around during the Anglo-Saxon era which meant that they had to grow, catch, hunt for and rear their own food. Find out more about what they grew on their land and which animals were kept for food through research and complete the activities in the document below. Using your research, you will create both a fact sheet and your very own Anglo-Saxon menu!
From your History research, you will now be aware that bread was very important to the Anglo-Saxons as they ate it with almost every meal! Following the activities outlined in the document below, find out more about Anglo-Saxon bread and bread in our modern day society - are there any similarities or differences? Then, in Great British Bread Bake Off style, make your very own Anglo-Saxon bread - I hope it tastes as delicious as it sounds!
