Tuesday

Tuesday 9th June

 

Hello everyone,

 

Hope you all had a lovely Monday. After such a wet weekend, it was nice to have a bit of a break from all the rain.

 

Did any of you take part in ‘Mysterious Monday’?

Today’s theme for Tuesday is: ‘Timewarp Tuesday.

Today we would like you to think about what you consider to be REALLY OLD technology?  

 

The Norfolk Museum service have produced some fabulous resources for children to use during this time whilst the museums still remain closed to the public. I have included one of these in our daily tasks for today.

 

Have any of you managed to sign up to the Wild acts of kindness on the Norfolk Wildlife Trust website? There are so many ideas for getting outdoor and getting closer to nature and the natural environment.

 

The Natural History Museum are hosting a live event on Friday 12th June at 10.30-11.15am, called ‘Nature Live Online: Volcanoes’. You can submit questions during this event or it can be watched on Youtube at a later date. I will put the link for this in our resources section as a reminder to watch this on Friday.

 Have a good day!

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 5 – Tri-Golf’

- 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 ‘Investigations‘’.  One of the skills of being a mathematician is to be able to work systematically and finding all the possibilities. Today’s task is on the NRICH website and it is called ‘Consecutive number’. Read all the instructions very carefully to ensure you get all the possibilities. Click on the link provided in the resources section.  Think about how you will explain your findings. What have you learned from doing this investigation? https://nrich.maths.org/consecutivenumbers

 

> Further Maths to have a go at! Visit the White Rose website ‘Summer Term Week 7 (w/c 8th June) and complete Lesson 2 ‘Forming Expressions’.  

 

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

 

 

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

 

> Please continue with the writing challenge for the week: See document in Resources and Web Links section. Remember you should be planning and researching your ideas at this stage. Use a thesaurus to find some ambitious vocabulary and make a list of Y5/6 words to include. Which punctuation will you include? Remember when you write your first draft you will be able to tick these off as you use them.

 

> Something a little different…

Open the document called ‘Lockdown Activity Pack – Week 1 Challenge: The Castle Maze’. You may want to spread these activities out over a few days. There are 4 challenges to have a go at: The Animal Zone, The Medieval Zone, The Ancient Zone and The Final Task. There are activities/questions to complete in each section by visiting each part of the museum on a virtual tour which you guide yourself.  Answers are given at the end of the document. Have fun!

 

> Remember to build in some quiet time, creative time and outdoor time! Why not try the nature activity or a lego challenge?

 

Have a good day!

 

Mrs Ashby and Miss Barrett
