Happy Easter 🐣

Well done Owls (and parents and carers) for coping so brilliantly with the challenges of the last 2 weeks.  We have both been so impressed by all of the comments and work you have sent in; it has been a great way to stay connected together.  In terms of work over the Easter holidays, Year 6 you have a maths pack called ‘Ten for Ten’ included in your pack that you can complete a small section of each day if you want to.  You can all still log onto Numbergym, ttrockstars and Reading Eggs, again, if you want to. However, we suggest that you all spend some important family time together, keep exercising whichever way you can, do things to help you to relax or maybe take time to learn a new skill.  Have an eggcellent break; we would be eggstremely happy to see what you have been up to when we catch up again over the holidays.

Happy Easter

Superb Science

Our resident Science expert Thomas has been very busy at home turning his kitchen into a lab to try out another of his exciting experiments.  Excellent work Thomas; thanks for sharing the pictures with us.T1 T2

Morning all.  Happy April Fool’s day.  I hope that you haven’t played too many pranks on people; you know who I am talking to!

1)How many April Fool’s Day news stories can you find?  Try looking on the Newsround site.  My favourite prank was a news story from a very long time ago about where spaghetti came from.  I wonder if you can find out what it might have been all about?

2)Maths – following yesterday’s adding and subtracting fractions MyMaths, have a go at the attached activity.  There are 3 levels of difficulty, choose the one that you feel most comfortable with.

Continue practising times tables using ttrockstars; let’s see which house will win this week.

3)Spellings/Writing task: Freya and Rowan have rolled a set of storycubes and I have uploaded the photo below.  Your challenge is to write a story using all of the objects shown on the cubes and as many of your weekly spellings as possible.  Optional extra element: include examples of relative clauses as revised on Monday.  Remember to apply good editing/proof-reading skills when you have finished writing.  Freya and Rowan are keen to read what you come up with.

4)Reading – keep reading for pleasure and listening to David Walliams reading his work daily.  Also, complete one of the reading comprehensions from your CGP books.

5)Exercise time – join Joe Wicks again this morning or do at least one type of activity to keep you active.

6)Continue your Easter project from yesterday or choose another idea from the homework menu.

Have a great day

Morning Owl class, hope you are all well and finding lots of interesting ways to keep busy.  Fantastic work by those completing the MyMaths work; hope you are getting my feedback.  Also, well done to Alex for completing a maths quiz (with a near perfect score) that Reuben designed.  Great work boys and thank you for sharing.

Tasks for today:

1)MyMaths: 1 task on adding and subtracting fractions to complete online.  As a bit more practise, have a go one of the addition worksheets and one of the subtraction worksheets attached. There are 3 strengths: easier, medium and harder so pick which one you feel most comfortable with.  The harder one overs both addition and subtraction together.

Addition – easier

Addition – medium

Addition and Subtraction – harder

Subtraction – easier

Subtraction – medium

2)Spellings/handwriting – use your spellings in sentences in your books.

3)Numbergym: continue working through the mental maths challenge to see how far you can get.

4)Reading – keep making time to reead for pleasure each day.  Perhaps you could read to a younger member of your family either at home or use technology and read to them via Skype etc.  Have any of you tuned into David Walliams daily story yet?

5)PSHE – Visit the Newsround site and watch today’s news.  Also, can you find 5 good news stories?  These could be linked to ways in which people are spreading hope, supporting each other or simply just a funny story.  Next, you could write the script for your own news story and even film it if you can.

6)Exercise time: Hope you are enjoying the Joe Wicks daily workouts or finding creative ways to keep fit and active; I know you lot are not short of creativity!  I could do with some ideas to try with my children.

7)We suggested an Easter project on our homework menu so you could start that today if you haven’t already.

Missing you all

Happy Monday all!  Hope you are all well and ready for a new week.  Well done to those of you managing to complete the online tasks (I will continue to leave feedback on MyMaths) and I love to receive photos of what you are up to if you are able to send them to the admin address.

Tasks for today:

1)MyMaths – I have set 2 activities on improper and mixed fractions.  Don’t panic you know who; you will be fine.  In case you find it tricky, have a look at the PowerPoint.

Year 6: Continue to work through your addition, subtraction, multiplication and division packs.

2) ttrockstars – Let’s see who won last week’s battle and start a new one!

3)Spellings/handwriting:  As last Monday, practise your new spellings using the attached PowerPoint and sheets.  Remember, this is handwriting practise too.

4)Reading – at least half an hour reading your own book or finishing reading MacBeth on Reading Eggs.

5)Grammar/English: Relative clauses.  Take a look at the PowerPoint explaining what relative clauses are and how they are used.  Then try the attached activity pack.

6)Exercise time: Keep trying out Joe Wicks’ daily workout; I have been doing them at school and at home too.

7)Topic ideas: Either pick another activity from the homework menu or if you are feeling arty, try drawing a portrait of someone in the Andy Warhol style that we used for Tutankhamun in school.  I’d love to see some photos.

Take care of each other and keep up those daily acts of kindness.
