# Thursday 11th June

Good morning Class Four! Happy Thursday - we are almost at the weekend.

I hope you enjoyed your learning yesterday and are pleased with your finished germ leaflets. Today, hopefully you will find your Topic lesson really interesting this afternoon as you will be finding out a bit more about an animal of your choice - I got to research hedgehogs whilst planning it for you so that was interesting for me.

I had a nice evening last night as I did a Zoom Pilates session which my friend Faye was teaching. I always feel so calm and relaxed after I've done it, although I can feel today how hard we worked our legs as they are a bit achy!

Have a great day, keep working hard, love Miss Olver x

Even though it was only 16 minutes of exercise rather than the normal 20 minutes yesterday, it was still a really tough session - especially the first 4 minutes! I wonder what we will be doing today?

Maths

It’s Thursday, so you need to do your Learn It challenge today. If you still have one, work through this. If not and you are working on the Ultimate Challenges, then these are saved in the Maths Help section of the Class Four website. If you need another sheet, please email me and tell me which one, then I will email it to you. Give yourself 2 minutes to complete your sheet. Once you are finished, if an adult is free, you could ask them to kindly mark it for you, if not, mark it yourself with a calculator.

Year 5

Today you are going to be continuing with your work on fractions. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 5 website and find Summer Term Week 6, Lesson 3 which is called ‘Fractions of an Amount’. Watch the video and then work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work. I have also attached my workings for Q4-7 in case you want to go on and see how I would have worked these out and to see the answers in a bit more detail.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, then go onto one of the websites below:

Year 6

Today you are going to be continuing with your work on rules and expressions from yesterday. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 6 website and find Summer Term Week 7, Lesson 3 which is called ‘Substitution’. Watch the video and then work through the worksheet.  I have attached the answers so you can check your work. I have also included a document showing my workings for Questions 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 in case you want to see how I worked it out.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, then go onto one of the websites below:

English

Remember to write an entry into your diary/journal at some point today.

Today is Thursday, so we will be doing a spelling focused session. Last week in your spelling sentences, you had the words advise and advice and this week you have the words practise and practice. These homophones are ones which people (adults included!) often get mixed up on. Start today by working through the Powerpoint below which will explain about how you know whether you need the 'ce' or 'se' ending.

Now have a go at the worksheet below. You need to choose the right word from the box to fill in the gaps. Remember:

If the word is a noun, then it will end with -ce.

If the word is a verb, then it will end with -se.

Now have a go at the spelling wordsearch below. The wordsearch is on Page 1 with the answers on Page 2.
You might want to practise your spelling sentences now whilst these words and spellings are in your mind.

Topic

Today we are going to be carrying on with our work on sorting (classifying) animals and plants from yesterday.

First look through the Powerpoint below.

Now I want you to find out the classification system for an animal of your choice and then record it in your topic book.

Have a look at how to do this on the document below.

Once you have filled out a classification table for your chosen animal, have a think - which animal can you think of which is very similar to the one you chose? Look up its classification - what is the same, what is different?

For example, I looked up a hedgehog, I could then look up a porcupine as that is also prickly and see which categories are the same and which are different.
