Good Morning Owls and Happy New Year! I hope you have all had a great Christmas break. This is not quite the start that we were expecting to the Spring term and I am so disappointed not to see you all in class today but like last time, we will get through this together. As the announcement to move to remote learning came out last night, today I am posting work here whilst we get to grips with the technology needed to do more face to face teaching. Please bear with us whilst we sort it out; we will let you know when we are in a position to start this.
So, here are your home learning tasks for today:
*English – I have chosen the following unit from The Oak National Academy for both year groups to follow. Using the link below, find Year 6 week beginning Monday 14th December. I would like you to complete Monday’s lesson today. Begin by selecting Monday’s lesson which is called ‘To analyse the features of a newspaper report’. Follow the instructions in the lesson to work through the teaching video and the related activity.
*Maths – Today, we are looking at multiplying fractions by integers. Take a look at the PowerPoint before completing the relevant worksheets for your year group. Remember that the question sheets are divided into 2 strands :Reasoning and Problem Solving (RPS) and Verbal Fluency (VF) and into 3 levels of difficulty (developing, expected and greater depth. You only need to complete one of the three levels of difficulty for each strand i.e. Year 5 expected RPS and VF. The answers are included at the back of each set for you to mark your work.
If you find the above a bit too tricky, here are is an activity on adding fractions that you could try instead.
*Science – This half term, we are starting a new topic on the classification of living things. I would like you to find out about Carl Linnaeus. Who was he? What is he best known for? How does what he developed help us with our lives today? There is a PowerPoint below to get you started.
*Reading – spend at least 15 minutes reading today.
*Times Table practice – log onto TTRockstars and spend at least 20 minutes improving your quick recall of times tables.
Record your work in the book sent home from school. Please send copies/photos of your work to the admin email address.
Have a good day and keep smiling. Sending lots of virtual hugs,
Mrs Hollis x
