Happy Friday everyone and Happy May Day too.

See if you can write all your spellings from memory today? You could do the same for times tables too. Remember to read as well.

Maths

Count how much is in each purse. Use your knowledge of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to help.

Challenges : 1. Write the calculations to match (eg 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8 or Y2s could write the multiplication 4 x 2 = 8).

2. Draw some purses of your own and work out how much is in each.

Reading 

Watch the video from Miss Harker all about nouns.

You might want to get ready to pause it at some points to do the activities in your home learning books.

Topic – Geography

Draw a compass in your home learning book. Add the points of the compass: north, east, south and west.

Challenge: Can you think of a silly rhyme to help you remember the points of the compass? Miss Harker uses ‘never eat shredded wheat!’ (north, east, south and west).

The last day of April already. Here is the learning for today but remember to read and work on spellings/times tables too.

Maths

Watch the video from BBC Bitesize. There is an activity too.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zp8dmp3/articles/zcrq2p3

Choose 2 toys at a time and write the calculations of how much they would cost altogether. Remember to write p after the numerals eg 2p + 10p = 12p

Challenge: Choose 3 or more toys, write the calculation and find out how much they cost altogether. Draw part whole models to match the calculations.

Reading

Watch the BBC Bitesize about commands.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/z8strwx

Command sentences are used when you are telling someone to do something.

Commands usually start with an imperative verb, also known as a ‘bossy verb’, because they tell someone to do something. You should also use commands when you are writing instructions telling someone how to do something.

Read the commands below.

Fetch me some biscuits.

Tidy your bedroom.

Run as fast as you can.

Challenge : Write three (or more) commands of your own.

Topic – Geography

Watch the video by Miss Harker all about oceans :  https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cYfuXyBcGV

There is also a catchy song all about the oceans too!

Good morning! I hope you’re all staying happy and healthy. How did you get on with the physical challenges yesterday? Did you beat Mr Mills with the shoe lace challenge? What was your personal best time?

I’ve created my first video lesson today for Year 6 maths – enjoy!

Today’s learning……

Maths

Warm-up: Times Tables Rockstars

Year 5:  polygons

Year 6: angles in triangles

Reading: comprehension

Read the text ‘Adrenaline Towers’ and then answer the questions.

Writing: parenthesis

Parentheses

Bracketsdashes and commas indicate parentheses (parentheses is the plural of parenthesis).

Parenthesis is a word or clause inserted into a text as an afterthought (or as extra information).

A pair of brackets, commas or dashes can be used to enclose the extra information or afterthought.

Complete the BBC Bitesize lesson all about how to use brackets, dashes and commas to indicate parenthesis.

Good morning!

Thank you to Sofia, who emailed me her fantastic writing yesterday, which was part of the writing challenge set last Friday by Mr Roundtree-check it out on our class news page. 

Maths: angles

Year 5: angles

Year 6: angles around a point

Today’s task is to calculate missing angles around a point. Remember – angles around a point have a total 360 degrees.

Reading: summarising

When you summarise, you shorten a piece of text and say/write the main, important points.

There are many technique variations for summarising information, such as mind maps, bullet points or story retelling. These are used to discern the who, what, where and when from a piece of text.

For example:

  • Who/What – The Tudor family reign.
  • When – 1485 to 1603.
  • Where – England and Wales

Complete this activity. 

You will need a copy of the First News paper again.

Challenge: Go on to the BBC Sport website (https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport), or a different age-appropriate website, and choose an article to read. Once you’ve read it, summarise the article in 20 words. Then, try again in 10 words. After that, have a go at summarising in 5 words. Finally, summarise the article in 1 word.

PE with Mr Mills

Mr Mills has set you two physical activities today to help you keep fit and active.

Hello there! Halfway through the week! If you want to listen to a story after you have done all your hard work, then go to our Y3&4 Class News page where you’ll find a video of me reading a book!

Maths: Yesterday’s answers – Year 3 and Year 4.

Today’s learning:

Year 3 video learning and worksheet. Today you will be heading to Bitesize to complete your task and the first activity that they have listed.

Year 4 video learning  and Y4 worksheet.

Reading: Today’s task is a reading comprehension.  Read through the text and answer the questions. (The answers are on the second sheet.)

Writing: Last week, we watched the video of the impala escaping from the leopard. (You could always watch it again if you want to!) This week, we have some pictures of some other animals escaping from their predators. Choose one of the pictures, or use your own ideas, to answer the questions about an attack and escape (just like you did last week with the video.) Can you use your notes to retell the story of the narrow escape? You may want to write some sentences that you can use tomorrow when we will write the story of the narrow escape.

Good morning everyone!

Remember to read and work on spellings/times tables today.

Maths

Play shops at home by making some of your own price tags (just using scraps of paper or cardboard from your recycling). Write a different amount on each price tag all the way up to 20p (or more if you want a challenge). You could buy and sell fruit, vegetables, clothes or toys (just pretending, of course, and remember to put everything back once you’ve used it).

How many different ways can you make the amount on the price tag? Your parents, brother, sister, pets or teddies might like to join in with playing shops too?

Challenge : Make a price list, signs and write receipts for your shop.

Reading – Statements

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zp7mn39/articles/zdmjjhv

Statements are the most common type of sentence. They tell the reader a fact or idea about a single topic. They must always end in punctuation, usually a full stop.

Read the statements below.

I go to St James Primary School.

My favourite thing to do is learn new things.

The sun was shining all through the month of April.

Challenge : Write three (or more) statements of your own.

Topic – Geography

Follow the link to watch a selection of Go Jetters videos all about some of the UK’s most significant landmarks. What is a landmark? Can you think of any landmarks in Leeds?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/pshe-eyfs-ks1-go-jetters-uk-places-and-landmarks/zkyjkmn

After watching, can you locate all the landmarks on a map?

Challenges : 1. Choose one of the four landmarks. 2. Sketch or paint and label the landmark. 3. Write sentences describing the landmarks.

Hola everyone! Here are your tasks for today.

Write the amounts of money that are in each jar counting in 2s, 5s or 10s. Remember to use a ‘p’ after the numerals eg 20p.

Challenge: Draw around some 2p, 5p and 10p coins in your home learning book. Count in 2s, 5s or 10s to work out the total amount that you have made.

Reading – Questions

Watch the first short video about questions on BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons. Then, if you can, there are 2 follow up activities all about The Magic Faraway Tree, which was our much-loved class novel earlier in the year.

https://bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7b72sg

Topic – Geography recap

Can you remember the seven continents of the world? You could watch the song to remind yourself. Write them in your home learning book from smallest to largest.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6DSMZ8b3LE

If you have a globe or atlas, you could find the continents there too.
