Good morning Class Four!
I hope you all had a good day with your learning yesterday and managed to get outside to enjoy the sunshine as well. Unfortunately the forecast isn't as good for the next few days
I went for a walk round Lakeside yesterday morning - just before you go in, someone had made a collection of painted stones, they were so detailed and there were so many of them! I've included a picture below - you might want to have a go at making one of your own, especially if the weather isn't so good. In Lakeside, there were so many beautiful birds and a family of moorhens and a family of geese - the chicks were all so fluffy and cute!
I spent the day painting the kitchen - I've got a bit of glossing to do and the tiling (but that's waiting until after lockdown as I want my Mum to help me with that bit!), but it's almost there now. I'll share some pictures later in the week.
Have a great day and work hard. Love Miss Olver x
Mrs Munday has asked me to write you a message from her to say hello and that she hopes you all had a lovely Easter break and are enjoying getting back into your home learning. She sends her love and best wishes and hopes you are all safe and well.
She sent me a couple videos of her lovely dog Ruby and a photo of a very special Easter bunny. Apparently this was her bunny and one Easter the cross markings just appeared on her head and weren't there before!
It's Tuesday today, which means Times Tables test day! If you still have a test in your pack, then work through this today. If not, you can find the one you need on the Maths Help section of the Class Four website. Give yourself 5 minutes to complete the test. I have put all the answers to the times tables tests up in the Maths Help folder as well so you can now mark them yourself.
Today you are going to be continuing with your work on Percentages. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 5 website and find Week 2, Lesson 4 which is called ‘Percentages as Fractions and Decimals’. Watch the video and work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work.
If you want a challenge, have a go at the fraction, decimal and percentage challenge sheet below. There are 3 levels:
Easiest (but be warned – this still isn’t easy, it’s a challenge!) – Task on Page 1, Answers on Page 2.
Middle – Task on Page 3, Answers on Page 4.
Hardest – Task on Page 5, Answers on Page 6.
Today you are going to be continuing to work on scale factors from yesterday. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 6 website and find Week 2, Lesson 1 which is called ‘Calculating Scale Factors’. Watch the video and work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work.
There are a couple facts you need to know to be able to complete this work:
1. To find the area of a triangle: Multiply the length of the base by the height. Then divide your answer by 2.
2. Angles in a triangle always add to a total of 180 degrees.
3. The perimeter is the total distance around the outside of the shape. You need to add the lengths of all the sides.
If you want a challenge, the sheet below has three of the pink problem questions we often do at the end of a lesson. The answers are available too so you can check your work.
Remember to write an entry into your diary/journal at some point today.
In today's session, I would like you to do your silent writing task. You will need to think carefully about how you organise and present your work. If you have chosen to do the newspaper report, think about whether you can write in columns and where you will put any pictures you want to include. If you are doing the fact page, consider where you will put the different sections and how you will make your sub-headings clear for your reader. It is completely up to you whether you do your writing by hand in your book or on a computer. You will have tomorrow's session to finish, edit and improve your writing, so don't rush it today!
I would like you to read one of the following Greek myths: Theseus and the Minotaur or The Story of Arachne.
Then I would like you to retell the myth. You could:
If you want to, you can send me your work so I can have a look at it.
