Tuesday

Tuesday 19th May

 

Hello everyone,

 

Hope you all had a lovely Monday. Did any of you take part in ‘Mathematical Monday’?

 

Today’s theme for Tuesday is: Teaching Tuesday.

Today we would like you to teach something that you have learned recently that is new to you and share this with another member of your family. It could be something related to maths, learning theme or science, or maybe it will be some new words you have been learning through our word of the day activities. Perhaps it might be something related to an interest or hobby you have. My son yesterday was teaching me some new facts about sharks which he is really interested in – he likes to share the more gory details!  

 

Have a good day!

 

Mrs Ashby and Miss Barrett

 

 

Tuesday's Learning tasks:

> Start your day with an Active Start. There are lots of options for you:

- Weekly challenge from Pav

- Norfolk School Games ‘Week 3’

- Joe Wicks – daily PE on Youtube

- Go Noodle also available on Youtube

- Imoves

- Or create your own PE session – for example, an obstacle course in the garden or lead a keep fit session with your family to your favourite tunes

 

> Read your book for 20 minutes. Or you could read a book from Bug Club. Bug club books are great because they have comprehension questions for you to answer too.

 

> Complete a maths quiz on diagnostic questions. 

 

> Maths: This week we are looking at ‘Algebra’.  Open the document ‘Tuesday Maths Algebra presentation – algebraic expressions’ – this will give a refresher on yesterday’s learning and gives lots of examples for you to help explain algebra and the expressions we use – you must read through this before you attempt the questions on the separate document ‘Tuesday maths algebra creating expressions’. Answers for these questions will be given on Wednesday.

 

> Further Maths to have a go at! Visit the White Rose website ‘Summer Term Week 5 (w/c 18th May) and complete Lesson 2 ‘Multiply decimals by integers’.  

 

> Complete the word of the day activities - see below. 

 

 

> Visit Active learn website and select a maths and a SPAG activity to complete.

> Our Learning theme for the summer term is:

               VOLCANOES AND EARTHQUAKES

  • Look at the ‘Presentation what is a volcano and how are they formed’. Then draw a labelled diagram of the inside of a volcano – you can use the resource ‘Diagram of inside a volcano’ to help you.  
  • Why not watch the link in our resources section called ‘Inside A Volcano: Explorer Travels To The World's Most Extreme Environments’
