Wednesday 17h June
Hello to you all!
I hope this week is going well for you all, and you are enjoying the better weather again now. It’s nice to be able to see a few more friends and family now, while remaining socially distant.
Today’s theme for Wednesday is: We love to read Wednesday
What is the book you cannot stop reading and what is your favourite book of all time?
I’m looking forward to seeing some more of you in school.
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
- 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.
- Complete a maths quiz on Diagnostic Questions
- Maths - This week we are revising our fraction knowledge. Today I would like you to practise converting improper fractions to mixed numbers, and mixed numbers to improper fractions. Look at the ‘Wed Maths Improper Fractions Presentation’ to remind you of what to do. Then complete either of the activity sheets. I will upload the answers later on in the afternoon.
- Further Maths to have a go at! Visit the White Rose website ‘Summer Term Week 8 (w/c 15th June) and complete Lesson 3 ‘Convert metric measures’. Remember, if you are finding these too tricky you could look at a lower year group or if you need a greater challenge look at a higher year group instead. We do not have a subscription to the worksheets so this activity is just watching and discussing the video.
- Complete the word of the day activities – see below.
- Practise some of the songs from ‘The Virtual Big Sing’ details for this were to you and there is information in our resources section. The Big Sing is this Friday!
- 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. Today you should begin to write your Essay. Remember to look at the notes you have already made about the word you have chosen.
- Science - This term we are learning about FORCES. We will look at gravity, air and water resistance and friction. I have put a really helpful document for you to read in the resources section called ‘Science – Forces helpful notes’.
Today you will be learning about air resistance. Look at the following link which explains this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zsjd7ty
Then please read through the ‘Science – Air Resistance Presentation’. When you have done this carry out the fun investigation; notes for this are on the document ‘Science – Air Resistance Investigation Notes’. Also look at this YouTube link which shows you how to go about your experiment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqKFLPntcxs
This looks SUPER FUN and SUPER MESSY! Please make sure you carry this out in an appropriate place.
Enjoy making a mess!
- Remember to build in some quiet time, creative time and outdoor time! There is a list of nature activities for you to do that I’ve taken from the Wildlife Trust that you could have a go at – see document for Random Acts of Wildness. If you fancy some cooking, there are also great easy to follow recipes on Willow class page that you may want to try.
Word of the day
- What is the definition of ‘wilderness’?
- Write two descriptive sentences using the WOD.
- Synonyms – (words that have a similar meaning)
- Create a word art picture that illustrates the meaning of the word.
- The suffix ‘ness’ is actually a native English suffix (many come from Greek or Latin) and it is often added to words to create an abstract noun. Make a list of words that have the suffix ‘ness’ and underline the ness part in each word you research. How many can you find?
- Write the letters from the WOD in a vertical list (see below) and see if you can think of a natural /man made environments or habitats beginning with each letter. I have put an example for the first letter.
W = wetlands
You will need a dictionary and a thesaurus for these activities, if you don’t have one use an online dictionary and thesaurus.
