Thursday 16th July

Good morning Class Four, it's Thursday - almost the weekend and one step closer to the Summer Holidays! Keep working hard, you are doing so well and I am so proud that you are still doing your home learning this close to the break.

I had a lovely evening last night. As many of you know, I've been doing Pilates via Zoom with my friend Faye each week. She has started organising some outside classes with 5 clients, but yesterday the weather wasn't great so she had to cancel it. However she said I could go and do it with her on my own in her studio. She has a lovely little studio in her garden just for Pilates. It was quite funny as I had to set up my mat behind her camera so that I wouldn't distract the other clients whilst she was doing it on Zoom and had to be really quiet.

After the session, we went down to Lee-On-The-Solent and had fish and chips on the beach. It was the first takeaway I had had since before lockdown and was such a lovely treat! We wrapped up in our coats and sat on a blanket as it was a bit chilly, but was such a nice evening. And the sea air always makes me sleep well!

Hope you are all having a good week too. I'm looking forward to reading your stories when you've finished them.

Have a good day, love Miss Olver x

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 on your work on time by reading some timetables. Go to the White Rose Home Learning Year 5 website and choose Week 12, Lesson 4 which is called 'Timetables'. Watch the video, work through the worksheets and check your answers.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a look at the websites below which will help you practise the skills you have been working on this week:

Year 6

Today we are going to be learning about how to calculate the mean (the average). Go to the White Rose Home Learning Year 6 Website and choose Week 12, Lesson 4 which is called 'The Mean'. Watch the video, work through the worksheet and then mark your work. I have included a document showing my workings for some of the questions in case you want to see how I worked them out.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a look at the websites below which will help you practise the skills you have been working on this week:

English

Today is our last lesson on homophones. Start by working through the Powerpoint. It has a Homophones Quiz and some other activities to help you practise using homophones correctly.

Next, have a go at the Homophones Mini-Test below. The test is on pages 1-2 with the answers on page 3. Hopefully you will be feeling more confident at using homophones now that we have been practising them for the whole half term.
You might want to practise your spellings now as you have been working on them.

Story Time

Use the time you have this afternoon to finish your story. I would really like to see them so please send me a copy/photos of them so I can have a read through. It would also be lovely if you could read your story to someone. Perhaps you could read it to your brother/sister or your parents - or perhaps you could try a video call with a grandparent and read it to them, I'm sure they'll enjoy hearing them.

Spellings and Reading

Make sure you practise your spellings (if you didn't practise them in the English session earlier) ready for your test tomorrow and do some independent reading of your choice.
