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.

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.

## 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.

Maths

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.

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.

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.

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

Good morning- I hope you’re having a good start to the week and staying happy and healthy.

How are you getting on with the home learning tasks? If you have any questions or would like to send me some of your learning then please email me: nataliebeatson@spherefederation.org

Today’s learning……

Maths: angles

Year 5: naming angles

Year 6: angles on a straight line

Today’s task is to calculate missing angles on a straight line. Remember – angles on a straight line have a total of 180 degrees.

Y6 challenge

Have a read of the full newspaper. Find an article you like and create your own quiz for a friend / someone in your family to do. You could write questions down or you could do it as a video.

Geography: Where are the major cities of the UK?

This is a recap lesson. Have a go at learning all the major cities in the UK. Challenge your parents to identify as many as they can in a row. Alternatively, take it in turns until one person doesn’t know. Before challenging someone else, study the map yourself so you become an expert.

Morning!
Week four of our home learning tasks already! We hope you are still enjoying the activities we are suggesting. Remember, there are lots of other ways to learn too. You could be cooking, exercising, garden, playing board games or talking to family or friends using digital devices.

Try to keep reading for at least twenty minutes per day – to yourself, your mum, dad, teddy or pets. It could be in two, 10 minute sessions. Keep reading anything and everything. If you have run out of your own books to read there is a fab online library of eBooks to read on https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/ Just register on the website, log in and choose what you want to read.

There is new content on BBC Bitesize, with three lessons each day: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize and Oak National Academy (ONA), also with three lessons each day: https://www.thenational.academy/  There’s also White Rose: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ if you are wanting more. We will be linking some of these lessons in activities we set too.

Each Monday, we will also upload a set of spellings for you to practise over the course of the week. Then on Friday, see if you can write them out without looking at them. Someone could test you if you want.

Y2s will also have a set of times table or division facts to learn too.

Weekly spellings :

Y1 : queen quiz chip watch ship wish that with

Read this postcard from Miss Harker.

Challenge : Write a letter or note or postcard to someone. If you can, email or post it to the person. Or you could display a message in your window? It could be for someone from your family, a friend or maybe the local care home for someone who isn’t getting any visitors.

Our topic this half term should have been Geography driven. So, we are going to do some activities about the UK, other places, maps and directions over the next couple of weeks.

You made it to the end of the week- well done.

Yesterday, I enjoyed doing some science outside with George and Harry in the sun. We tested hand wash, shampoo and washing up liquid to see which one made the tallest ‘bubble tower’! They decided washing up liquid was the most effective.

Today’s learning……….

Can you found examples of ‘real-life’ fractions in your home? Here are some ideas to help you. Take some pictures and email any you find. nataliebeatson@spherefederation.org

Y5 maths

Writing: a challenge from Mr Roundtree……..

Mr Roundtree needs your help. He’s been writing lots of website news articles recently, but has started to suffer writers’ block – that the name for when authors run out of ideas.
The articles are for parents and carers to read, and they offer top tips and other guidance to support parents and carers with their child’s home learning. Your task is write an article on his behalf – are you up for this writing challenge?
Please email me your writing and we can publish some of the articles on our school website.
Science/Music
I had lots of fun doing a science experiment this week, so I thought I’d give you an idea for one. I’ve also been listening to a lot of music to make me feel happy, so I thought a science experiment that involves making music could be fun!
Here is how you can make music with water!
Which glass will make the highest tone and the lowest tone? Why does this happen? Can you play any well-known tunes?
Please send me some pictures of you doing your experiment and making music.
