Dragonflies – Tuesday 28th April

Good morning Dragonflies,

Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who is sending us emails and photos of what you are up to – it really helps us all stay in touch and I’ve no doubt you’re all inspiring each other at home. Check out the Facebook page too where we also share your work and members of our community are very much enjoying it – especially our previous governor, Colin Case!

Here are today’s learning activities:

  1. Reading:  20 minutes reading of your current book. If you missed it, please do make sure you tried out yesterday’s reading activity too!
  1. Spellings: Access the link below for your year group and learn the set list. You could print the handwriting sheet OR present it in your Homework Pack.

Year 5 Spelling & Handwriting

Year 4 Spelling &Handwriting

Year 3 Spelling & Handwriting

Challenge: Write a sentence using each word – make them funny if you can!

3. Maths: Access White Rose Maths and complete the tasks for Summer Term Week 2, Day 2.

Remember – if you find it too tricky (or easy!) feel free to try the daily lesson from a Year 3 (or Year 5/6) page. This is completely fine to do 🙂

4. English: 

Access and follow the Bitesize links below.

Year 4 Apostrophes – Toby’s going to really enjoy this! 😆

Other ideas for Tuesday:

  • PE: 9am Joe Wicks workout. 💪
  • ScienceKey Question: What is the difference between something that was alive and something that has never been alive?
  1. Start your brain THINKING by considering these questions below – we will come back to them later, but if you can, discuss them with someone for a couple of minutes each.
  • How can you work out if something is alive?
  • If a car moves, “eats” petrol and gives out exhaust gases, why isn’t it alive? If a clock moves and makes a noise, why isn’t it alive?
  • How do you know a plant is alive?
  • What do living things do?
  • What is special about things that are alive?

2.  Watch this Living Things Video Clip

3.  Explore the photos in the link below and decide: Are they alive or not? Why?

Living or Not Photos

4. Finally, explore your home and garden to find examples of things that are dead, alive or have never lived. Some ideas for recording:

  • Photographs or sketches into a sorting table
  • Make a Science Video – send it to the school if possible!
  • Table of results (or complete this one): Living things
  • If you have one, take a leaf out of Y6 Emma’s book and explore different organisms under a magnifying glass / microscope.
  • TT Rockstars:  The Inter House Tournament Round 4 continues! Play ‘Battle’ to earn your team points.

Have a great Tuesday,

Miss Whit 🙂
