Good morning to you all!
It's looking like another beautiful day out there. Since being at home more, I've noticed that we are making more of an effort to speak to our friends and family over the phone. So even though we cannot see anyone, we are speaking to them all far more than we normally would. Are you finding that you are doing the same thing?
It's important to keep exercising! We're going for a walk each day in the sunshine, playing in the garden and also watching Joe Wicks. Did anyone find his workout particularly difficult yesterday? Or was that just me?!
Have a great day everyone!
Thursday's Learning tasks:
1. Start your day with an Active Start there are some great links in the 'Resources and Weblinks' section on our main class page. One of the links is Joe Wicks - who will be doing a live PE session for children at 9.00am everyday on You Tube.
2. Finish any activities that were sent home with you (Easter booklet and maths sheets).
3. Read your book for 20 minutes.
4. Complete a maths quiz on diagnostic questions.
5. Maths: Statistics – we have been looking at different ways of presenting data. Let’s move onto line graphs now. Below you will find a document to revise line graphs; you can also use Google to research any further information. You then have three documents you can complete. ‘Line graph 1’, ‘Line graph 2’ and ‘Line graph 3’. Answers will be uploaded next week for you to self-mark.
6. Complete the word of the day activities - see below.
7. Continue researching ideas for a creative project on either Vikings or the Anglo-Saxons - more details to follow!
8. Visit Active learn website and select a maths and a SPAG activity to complete.
9. SCIENCE EXPERIMENT! You can do this over two days.
Thursday: Watch the YouTube clip (see this in the ‘Resources’ section) and carry out your own investigation into how liquids behave. In the clip they ask you to print off an ice cube tray template; you will not need to do this, just draw your own.
Friday: Once you have completed your experiment, talk about what you have observed with your friends over the phone, or on video call! Discuss why you think they behaved in this way.
