Activities to complete today (if you can):
Click on Week 7, Friday Maths Challenge – This will give you a chance to show off what you have learned this week in maths!
(Remember – if this material to too hard for your child at this stage in their development or without the resources they would have access to in school – please do not worry about doing this. You are also welcome to try lower year group work if you feel this would be beneficial. Please contact me if you think this applies to yourself.)
p.s. Please message me to let me know when you have done your maths work – it is nice to see it, as I cannot see it like I could on Purple Mash. Thanks!
Writing task - This week explores all things to do with health, hygiene and heroes. What is a microbe? Which scientists made important advances that impact our lives today? What is the NHS and who do you consider a hero in this current climate? When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online. Please note some clips display unmoderated comments underneath, which may be considered inappropriate. Adult supervision is recommended to ensure these are not accessed.
Watch the video, ‘For the Heroes: A Pep Talk From Kid President’ here: https://www.youtube.co m/watch?v=tgF1Enrgo2g After watching, write down what an ‘everyday-hero’ means to you. Think about someone you consider to be an ‘everyday hero’ during this current time in lockdown. This could be:
• someone you know personally, such as a family member, friend or teacher
• someone you have seen on the news, such as Captain Tom Moore – watch this Newsround clip to find out more: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52277760 a whole team of people, such as people working in your local hospital.
Once you have selected your everyday hero, write a letter to say thank-you to them personally. When writing your letter, make sure you include the following:
- An opening greeting.
- An initial sentence/paragraph outlining why you are writing to this person / people.
- Additional paragraphs giving reasons as to why they are your everyday hero.
- A concluding paragraph – summarising your reasons / reiterating your thanks.
- A suitable sign off – this will be different depending on who you are writing your letter to.
Once you have written your letter – consider sending it to the person via post. You may even get a reply!
