Thursday 2nd July 2020.
Activities to complete today (if you can):
Click on Week 10, Lesson 4 – Calculating angles around a point. Watch the video, do the activity, mark your answers. If you have any questions, or are struggling in some way – please get in contact with myself on Dojo and I will try my best to help you! The questions and answer sheets are on the ‘Attachments’ section of today’s work on our school class page.
(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 – Explore what is in our Solar System, the famous ‘Space Race’ and the thrilling, true survival space story – Apollo 13. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.

• Biography – Write a short biography about Katherine’s life. Remember to write your biography in chronological order (from Katherine’s birth up until her death), selecting the key dates and facts about her life.
• Comic strip – Design and create a comic strip about Katherine’s life. Make sure you plan out the story for your comic first – thinking about how many sections you want to split the story into, what captions you’ll have to add to the comic and the pictures you will draw.
