​​ School Closure

Online Resources wb 30th March 2020.

 

Week Beginning 30/03/20.. check out the weekly video at the bottom of the class page!

  • What a week !  I hope you've all survived the social distancing measures put in place and are keeping safe.  After receiving some feedback from some parents, can I remind you that the work I have assigned is not to be rushed through.  Please take your time.  For example, don't write an entire story in one day, try to plan a paragraph at time.
  • I've included the timetable at the bottom of this page, keep working from that.  Your pack shouln't be completed until the end of this week.  
  • There are plenty of online learning opportunies if children are very keen to do more.  Mr Moore has updated the home page of the site and he has included lots of website and online activities that can be completed. 
  • I will add the same links and any others I find to the bottom of this class page.
  • My son is home with me and he is working on core subjects (Maths, English ) in the morning and doing more relaxed activities in the afternoon.  He then goes on his X box for his alloted 1.5 hr once the school day is completed.  It's working well, and gives him a goal to work towards.  We've also been exercising to Joe Wicks daily!
  • Below is a chart of some suggested actitivies in both English and Maths which your child can complete IF they have finished their packs or if they are keen to do extra work.  You could use it instead of the packs if your child is struggling with any activites.
  • Keep smiling, I'm missing you all :)

Can you use the digits 1-9 to create a 3- digit multiplied by a 2-digit question that will give you an answer nearest to 10 000? You can use the digits more than once. How close can you get if you can only use each digit once?
​Day 2​Roll a dice to create a 4-digit add a 4- digit addition question. Work out the calculation. Repeat 6 times.

Example - add 2 odd numbers and it creates an odd number - always true

sqaure numbers are odd - sometimes true

What are the factors of your number? Are any of them prime? What is the 10th multiple of your number? What is the 100th multiple of your number?

https://www.mathsisfun.com/divisibility-rules.html

Are any of the factors prime?

Using mental and written strategies work out the answers to the following questions. • What is the 23rd multiple of your number? • What is the 46th multiple of your number? • What is the 99th multiple of your number? • What is 1/10 of your number? • What is 0.25 of your number?

Select from the list below and complete one each day.  These activites can be completed on lined paper and children should only work for 40 minutes, leaving 20 minutes to read.

It is the Olympic Games.  The fatest sprinters in the world are lined up on their starting blocks.   The fastest sprinters in the world.....and you!  You are about to compete in the 100m race.   As you wait for the offical to fire her starting pistol, the huge crowd hold their breath in anticipation.

What happens next?  Use the words, phrases and sentence openers in the box below to write your story.

It is a good idea to colour code the words and phrases before you start, decide which sentences you will use in their introduction, the middle and the end.

 

In the lane next to me...                I know I can do this...               The crowd watched....               Every muscle in my body.....              The heart beat loudly......

The crowd cheered.....                  Bang!            The finishing line got closer............           I looked over my shoulder....               My lungs hurt.......

Then....                 My feet pushed me forward............     My legs began to slow down......        Can I do this? .....    I lifted my arms into the air........

Sweat was dripping down my face.....     I stuck my chest out............    The excitement built.....

Walk to School Week

Write a paragraph to show what these characters might be chatting about using the correct punctuation (commas, captials, full stops, " ").  MAKE SURE to include action as well.  Here is an example..

The children had woken up early and set off to arrive to school in plenty of time.
