Wednesday

Wednesday 10th June

 

Good morning!

 

It’s Wednesday again! I hope you’ve been having a good week so far?

 

If you haven’t already, please check out the link in the resources section to find out more about The Big Sing! Although I would like as many of you to take part, it is completely optional. I have sent your individual log in details to your parents via email.  It looks like a fantastic singing event!

 

Today’s theme for Wednesday is: What’s the question Wednesday?

Watermelon is the answer. So what is the question?

 

We hope you have fun with this today, and enjoy working out some interesting questions for the answer.

 

Have a great day!

 

Miss Barrett and Mrs Ashby

 

Wednesday’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 P.E on YouTube
  • Go Noodle – also available on YouTube
  • Imoves
  • Or create your own P.E 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.

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.

Science - This term we are looking at FORCES. We will learn about gravity, air and water resistance and friction.  Last week we asked you to find out which famous scientist discovered GRAVITY. It was of course Sir Isaac Newton. Watch this fun clip to find out more about him and refresh your memory:
