Firstly, thank you to those people who have sent me their memoirs, I have really enjoyed reading them. I can see more and more people from the class are completing the activities I set on Active Learn and Purple Mash, please email me on Purple Mash if you have any questions about anything.
I've had an idea about making our own class paper person chain! The way it works is that you design and create a paper person that represents you on the 2do I have set you on Purple Mash, hand it in and I will print them off to create a class paper person chain. Let's spread the word!
Read on to find out what I'd like you to learn about this week:
Continue with the White Rose lessons. Click to watch the video and then complete the task. You don't need to print anything out, you can just work from the screen. This is the last week that the sheets are free to access.I have put some problem solving and reasoning papers in our assessments section if you want to see how your Maths learning is going too. You will also find arithmetic papers in there.
Your parents have been sent a link to an ebook called Power Maths Summer Home Edition. There are 40 lessons in this book. Some of them recap learning we have covered already in Textbook A or B, others are new lessons. This can be worked through in order doing 1-2 lessons a day to keep your maths skills ticking over. It is also available to buy on Parent Pay.
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.
You can carry on working through your SAT's buster books.Remember that you should vary the genre that you choose. If you haven't done so already, check Bug Club on Active Learn for a range of e-books that have been allocated to you.
Look out for the second instalment of 'Risks and Spills' e-magazine that I have allocated to you on Active Learn. Each day, there are short activities/questions that link to this text and you can find them here. If you missed last week's task about this, then you still have part 1 of Risks and Spills allocated to you and you can complete the questions about this by clicking here.
If you haven't quite finished your memoir, then continue with writing this and feel free to share too. I have emailed you all the memoir that I have written and it is also posted on our class display board on Purple Mash. I'd love to share your memoirs on there too!
If you're ready for the next writing task, then we are thinking about autobiographies for the next two weeks. I have allocated you a booklet all about autobiographies, including some examples, on Active Learn so take a look and read through. You can also find all of the resources linked to this unit on the writing section of our class page.Below is a suggested way for you to share out the work over the next 5 days:
Monday: Read the autobiography genre booklet and complete the tasks.
Tuesday: Use the planning sheet to plan your autobiography. I have allocated you this or you can find it here.
Wednesday: Write your first draft using your plan. Use the drafting tips that I have allocated you to do this. Ideally, hand write your draft as i'd like you to 'publish' your neat draft next week.
Thursday: Re-draft your writing based on any improvements/changes you have made. Maybe you could show a brother/sister or parent how we peer mark in school and do the same?
Friday: Start writing your autobiography.
I have set you the next spelling quiz, week 2 on Purple Mash too.
I have allocated you a video on Active Learn to watch. Think about the forces acting on the child as they are pushed on the swing. Complete the sheet about this here. I have allocated you an information page about newton meters to read on Active Learn too as well as a sheet to help you plan your own investigation about the grips on different types of shoes you can find in your house. You will find all of the resources for this here as well as on your active learn account. Why not have a go at planning and carrying out this friction experiment, record your results and share your conclusion on our blog page.
Continue learning about the Olympic games. Last week it was all about the rings, this week i'd like you to focus on the medals. Find out about the medals and complete the activities from our Olympics topic section. There are some Olympic medal art/craft activities for you to try in our Art & DT section on the class page.
Happy learning everyone, keep in touch and stay safe!
