Hello Sycamore Class!

Well done for your great work from yesterday. Harriet and Amelia both wrote an amazing book review which are on the 'class gallery' section on Sycamore's class page. Make sure you have a look at these, as well as all of the other work that everybody has been doing! Don’t forget to email your work if you want it to be added to this. 

 

Active Start

Choose something active to get your day started. You could pick from the list below, or think of your own. Let me know if you’ve done some amazing exercise that might inspire your classmates and I can add it to the list.

  • Joe Wicks workout
  • How many laps of you garden can you run in 10 minutes? Record the number and see if you can beat it tomorrow.
  • Set up a carousel of activities in your garden. Use what you can find to make an obstacle course- a slalom to run around, things to jump, something to climb under, some skipping, jogging on the spot, star jumps
  • Choose your favourite song and create a dance routine to go with it. Practise until you’re happy with it.

 

Daily Jobs

  • Read for at least 20 minutes. Choose somewhere comfortable with your favourite book! Don’t forget, you can also read magazines, internet articles, read online using your Bug Club/ Active Learn login. If you have younger brothers or sisters you could read them a story too.
  • Practice your spellings- choose 5 from the list in your pack. Use ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ to practise them, like we do in class.
  • Practice your times tables. You could do this by writing them down, playing ‘hit the button’ (or other online games on Active Learn), make up a song or rhyme to go with the times tables you’re practicing.

 

English

It’s Friday, which means it’s spellings day! ‘Yay’, I hear you all shout!

 

As well as practicing the spellings on your list, today we’re going to look at the long ‘e’ sound, which is spelt with an ‘ei’.

Create your own ‘scribble spelling’ page (there is an example below). Draw one continuous line on a plain piece of paper that cross over itself and goes in different directions. Remember your spaces need to be big enough to fit your spelling words in it.

 

Choose a section of your scribble sheet and see how many times you can correctly spell one of the words inside it. You can use different colours to make this look interesting.

 

Then choose 4 words and write a sentence for each. Make sure you spell the words correctly. Try to make your sentences interesting.

 

 

Maths

 

 

Yesterday in maths you created a tally chart and collected data to go in it. Today we’re going to use the data to make a graph. I’m sure lots of you are confident with this, but if you’re unsure I’ve written the steps you need to follow below.

 

  • You need to start by writing the title of the graph at the top. This should tell people looking at it what it shows, for example ‘Colour of cars going past my house’ or ‘Types of birds in my garden’.

 

  • Next, using a ruler, draw an axis (the lines that go across the bottom and up the side). Make sure you give yourself enough space to fit in all of your data.

 

With my data, the colour of cars with the biggest frequency was silver/ grey (with 8 cars), so I need to make sure my vertical axis (that goes up the side) goes up to at least 8. Write the numbers up the vertical axis.

 

  • Then you can put the data into the graph on the horizontal axis (along the bottom). Remember you should still be using a ruler!

 

  • Once you have finished putting in all of the data, and checked it’s correct, you can carefully colour in each bar of your bar graph. Each bar should be a different colour to make your graph clear to read.

 

 

Once you have finished, please send me a picture. I would love to see what different information you have collected. This is my graph. 

 

 

Topic

Yesterday you started to work on your Egypt poster. Today I’d like you to work to finish your poster. Remember that it’s up to you how your poster looks, but try to make it as interesting and attractive as possible. Colouring in should be done carefully, and lines drawn with a ruler.

 

I’m really looking forward to seeing your finished posters.

 

Well done for all of your hard work this week. Each week we’re amazed and proud of how well you are all doing, but look forward to being back together at school as soon as we are allowed. Have an amazing weekend- the weather looks like it’s going to be good so hopefully you’ll be able to spend some time outside with your families enjoying it as much as possible.
