Good morning Class Four,
I can't believe it's already Thursday - only one more day and then it will be half term!
I hope you had a good day yesterday and enjoyed doing your plays. A couple of you have already sent through copies of your plays/photos/videos and it sounds like you had great fun doing them. I am so pleased to hear how much you are still enjoying your learning even though you can't come to school.
Yesterday, I was really brave and cycled into school for the first time from the new house. It was much better than I expected - I think my legs have got much stronger from all the Joe Wicks sessions and the hills weren't too bad. I will definitely be cycling in again. I went to school for the morning. Mrs Mason, Mr Woolley and Mrs Bettridge were in so it was nice to catch up with them and to help the key worker children with their learning - they do the exact same learning as you do at home. I had to leave at lunch because I had an English course again in the afternoon online. This one was all about poetry and was really interesting, so I will be trying out some of the ideas in our next topic after half term which hopefully you will enjoy. After that I went for a run - it was soooooo hot! I was so red and sweaty when I got back! But glad I did it as I really want to keep up the training in case my marathon can go ahead in September. Flash and Fred were happy to get out in the garden when I got home as you can see from the pictures!
Hope you all have a lovely day, keep working hard as you will have a break from your learning next week.
Love Miss Olver x
It's Thursday, which means Learn It day. If you still have one left in your folder, work through this, if not, send me an email letting me know which one you need and I will send it through to you. If you are on the Ultimate Learn It challenges, then these are saved under the Maths Help section of the website so you can help yourself. Give yourself 2 minutes to complete it. 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.
Today you are going to be continuing with your work on decimals. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 5 website and find Summer Term Week 4, Lesson 3 which is called ‘Converting Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers and vice versa’. Again, this is something we have looked at before in class, but it will be good for you to revise it. Watch the video and work through the worksheet – this worksheet is very long, so please don’t worry if you don’t manage to finish it. I have attached the answers so you can check your work and my workings for some of the more difficult questions.
If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a go at one of the Maths games below which will help you work on your fraction skills.
Today you are going to be working on dividing decimal numbers by integers (whole numbers). Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 6 website and find Summer Term Week 5, Lesson 3 which is called ‘Divide Decimals by Integers’. Watch the video and work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work.
If you have time, or want an extra challenge, you could either:
Remember to write an entry in your diary/journal at some point today.
Today we are going to be doing another spelling session exploring words where prefixes ending in a vowel are added to root words starting with a vowel using a hyphen.
You might want to start by looking at the poster below and refreshing your mind about the meaning of each word. If you’re still not sure about what the word means, look it up in a dictionary, or have a look online.
Next, work through the worksheet. Choose the correct word from the word bank to go in the gap. Make sure you copy the spellings carefully and put the hyphen in the right place.
The hyphen words in your spelling sentences this week are re-entered, co-operated, re-examine, re-enter and re-evaluate. Have a look at the suggestions below, choose a couple options and use these to help you practise spelling these words.
Now might be a good time to practise your spelling sentences for the week whilst the words are fresh in your head.
Today is our fourth and final session on our Belonging unit. Today we will be exploring how Muslims show they belong to their faith during the month of Ramadan. Work through the Powerpoint below which has all the information on and explains today’s task.
Spellings and Reading
Make sure you practise your spelling sentences (if you didn’t do them in the English session earlier) ready for your test tomorrow and do some independent reading.
