We hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the beautiful sunny weather. This time next week we will all be back together in the classroom! In the meantime, just keep 'swimming'!
You may have already guessed it...
On our final trip around the world, we are off to Antarctica! Woohoo! As you may already know, this week's continent is going to be a very different one!
Let's learn as much as we can about this amazing continent. Remember that you can always do some of your own reading and research about Antarctica! Why not impress us with some fascinating facts?
Today we would like you to complete your 7th and FINAL passport page. This means you have travelled (virtually) to each and every continent in the world! You may notice that this week the passport page looks different...
That's because there are no human features in Antarctica! Can you believe it? There are only a few research bases and settlements where scientists work and live!
Watch the videos and have a look at the websites below to find out all about Antarctica.
P.s. At the end of the week, once you have completed your learning around the final continent, we may have a little surprise for you! How exciting!
This week our writing and reading work will be based around Emperor penguins. For today's reading work, we would like you to complete the left and middle column of the table. In the left hand column, you should write anything you already know about Emperor penguins. In the middle column, you should write anything you would like to find out about Emperor penguins this week. Remember to try to use the different question words at the start of your questions. We have uploaded some pictures of Emperor penguins, which may give you some ideas for questions.
Today we are going to be learning to recognise one third in shapes. By the end of the lesson, you should be able to confidently identify which shapes have one third shaded in.
We will do the maths input on Teams but remember that the fraction one third is written like this:
If the shape shows one third, it will be split into 3 equal parts and one part will be shaded like this:
For your activity today you have a lovely cut and stick task. Sort the shapes under the correct headings. Once you have done this, complete the challenge.
We will have a Times Tables Rock Stars battle on our Teams meeting and for your warm up today, we would like you to spend some time earning points for your class!
Your 5 a day is below.
This week we are learning how to spell the plural of words that end in y.
First, make sure you can remember what consonants and vowels are, as you will need to know these in order to understand this week's spelling rule.
Words are built from vowels (a, e, i, o, u) and consonants (the rest of the alphabet).
The letter 'y' is a bit different, because sometimes it acts as a consonant and sometimes it acts as a vowel.
Knowing how vowels and consonants work together to make words and sounds will help you with your spelling.
Click on the link below to watch a quick video on consonants and vowels.
This week we are going to be adding 'es' to nouns and verbs ending in 'y'.
For today's task, work through the flipchart slides below. Can you write the plural of each word using the spelling rule to help you?
Remember to look up the meanings of any words you don't know. There is a link to Collins Online Dictionary below.
Today we are going to make a start on our science project! We are going to be doing a science experiment to see which ingredients cause ice to melt the fastest.
Today we would like you to have a look at the activity below. Make sure that you have read it all. You only need to fill in the top box today which is all about making your hypothesis. You need to predict what you think will happen during your experiment - which ice cube will melt the fastest?
If you are making your own ice cubes you should also do this tonight! Pour water into each of your containers and pop them into the freezer overnight.
