Once again, we hope you have had a great week of learning, exercise and creativity. We have enjoyed seeing some examples of your work, especially the gorgeous artwork that has been submitted for our collaborative project! This is the final week of home learning before May half term when we will have a break and just our usual reading and times tables practise.
Please find the next week’s home learning activities below.
Choose one of the three activities from the following document. They vary in difficulty so choose a level that will challenge you but is not too difficult. Remember to answer fully and refer to the text where asked. Underlining and highlighting help with this.
Purplemash activity – Co-ordinates 1
This quiz will refresh your memory of co-ordinates.
Follow the link to watch your second music lesson. Once again, you won’t need any other resources (apart from your favourite toy if you wish!)
Purplemash activity – Co-ordinates 2
This activity is all about moving points on a co-ordinates grid.
View the powerpoint above and follow the instructions on screen
Take a look at the newspaper report above. There is an argument over whether a road should be built or not. Can you make a list of points for each side of the argument – for the road and against the road. Perhaps you can think of some other points of your own to add.
Extension – If possible, choose a side of the argument and debate the point with someone at home. The challenge is to try and persuade the other person to accept your argument.
Try this challenge to test your knowledge of co-ordinates. There is an extra challenge of finding the buried treasure when you have all the locations.
Visit the link to find out all about the water cycle. When you have watched the video and read the information, there is a quiz below.
English (Friday also)
Using your points from yesterday’s learning, choose a side of the argument that you would agree with most. You now need to write a letter to the local council, giving your opinions and persuading them to either build or stop the building of the new bypass.
You have written lots of persuasive texts this term and should be experts by now. This writing will have a slightly different lay out because it is a formal letter. Please read through the power point to help you to lay out your letter.
Make a start on the arithmetic test below. We usually have 30 minutes to complete these so you can choose if you want to be timed or not. You can mark it yourself or with an adult to see how you did.
LI – To reflect upon the beauty and destruction of the natural world.
Using the power point of beauty and destruction in the world, choose one image from each beauty and destruction pictures and write down key words and feelings that you have when you look at these images. Slides have questions on them to help you.
Finish your letter today.
Catch up – if you are up to date and you would like extra maths there are four fun coordinates activities attached and the answers for them too.
This afternoon, bake, cycle, play a game, complete a jigsaw, draw a picture, read a book – free choice!
