How are you all? I really hope you are getting on okay at home. I am setting plenty of work for you to do each week so you should have enough to keep you occupied during these drizzly, grey days. Thank you to everyone who has submitted their work to me- you have all been working very hard. I can see that you are enjoying the Greek myths and that you are finding out lots of facts about Greece. Keep it up! Here is this week's learning:
Have you made a start on your theme park Maths project yet? If not, follow the link to find the first two lessons. I have put the next few lessons in this folder for you to complete. The Year 6's in school have now finished their theme park project and they have made lots of profit. How much profit can you make? I'd love to see your work, so please upload anything you do to Purple Mash or blog about it.
Take a look in the Maths section to find extra Maths activities and some puzzles for you to try.
Check Purple Mash for any Maths 2dos that I have set for you too.
I hope you are enjoying the Greek myths as much as the Year 6's are in school. If you haven't finished last week's work, then pick up where you left off with that. If you're up to date, here are the next lessons:
Monday: Reread the Greek myth Perseus on page 39 of the e book. Now complete the 2do tasks on Purple Mash- 'Medusa story'- retell the myth and 'Medusa Your opinion'.Which was your favourite part of the story?
Tuesday: Read the Greek myth 'Jason and the Golden Fleece' on page 59 of the ebook. Now complete the 2do on Purple Mash. Imagine that you are Greek and your city has been attacked by a monster. Who would you choose to be the hero to save the day? Would it be Perseus, Theseus or Jason? Make sure you explain why using the text to help you.
Wednesday: Grammar lesson- Recap on how to use apostrophes correctly with this BBC bitesize online lesson and activity. Then complete the 2do on Purple Mash.
Thursday: Today, explore the different themes that are covered in the myths you have read in the ebook. Complete the tasks allocated to you on Active Learn, or find the worksheet here.
Friday: Consider the use of powerful language to describe scenes in Greek myths. Complete the online task allocated to you on Active Learn. Then, using this worksheet ( also allocated to you) highlight the following features using a different colour for each:
You also have your weekly spelling task set as a 2do on Purple Mash. For additional supporting resources to help you learn these spellings please look in the spellings section of our class page. Any work that you do, please save to your Purple Mash work folder so that I can see it, or post a blog about what you have been up to.
This week, you will identify some simple mechanisms including levers, gears and pulleys.Simple mechanisms are pieces of equipment designed to make tasks easier. These mechanisms rely on forces to make them work. You have been allocated some tasks on Active Learn to do with this. Firstly, look at the image of a seesaw and read the labels to understand how this simple lever works. Read some further information on the page about levers, gears and pulleys that is allocated to you. Then, use this sheet to cut out the mechanisms and group them according to their similarities. Perhaps you could find some examples of these mechanisms around your house? Why not take some photos and share them on the blog?
Are you an expert about Greek culture? If you didn't get chance to do the work from last week, then go back to the weekly update. This week i'd like you to focus on Greek food. Can you find out what types of food you might find in Greece? It would be great for you to plan and make a Greek feast or 'mezze' for your family to enjoy. Use the planning sheet I have set you as 2do task on Purple Mash.If you do make a meal, make sure you take lots of photos and share them with me!
