Wednesday 17th June

Hi everyone! I hope that you are all OK at home. It is so so nice to hear from most of you yesterday. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting on. Even if it just to say hi!

 

**Please just do what work you can and please please don’t worry if you don’t do it all.  I’d rather give you lots to keep you busy than not enough. If you wish to do alternative activities, that is also absolutely fine. Just do what is right for your family situation. Also, if you get stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. **

 

 

 Today’s activities are as follows:

  1. Complete Day 46 spelling and one of the grammar activities on Purple Mash 2Do
  2. Complete an arithmetic task on Kids Classroom Secrets
  3. If you have an IDL log in...use it each day and complete the lessons.

 

Maths - Below, I have attached a worksheet based on Rounding numbers. We have covered this in school so it will be a useful revision exercise for you.

There is a video on: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrjx6v4 to help.

Please complete the worksheet if you can. You don’t have to print it off, just record your answers and working out in your green book or do them on the squared paper I gave you and stick them into you green book. The answers for yesterday’s work are below to for you to self-mark and I will post up the answers for today’s work for you tomorrow.

Imagine the three scientists you have read about over the past two days, Edward Jenner, Louis Pasteur and Alexander Fleming, have all been nominated for the award, ‘Greatest Scientist of All Time’. You have been asked to select the winner.

Based on what you have read and watched, write down who you think deserves to win the prize. Make sure you write a clear and detailed explanation of why you have selected your scientist over the other two.

 

PSHE – Healthy Living

Look at the information sheet about portion control and the different food groups. In your green book, design a daily menu: breakfast, lunch and an evening meal to ensure that you eat healthily and cover all the different food groups (including your 5 portions of fruit/vegetables a day).

 

PE – Cricket Challenge

You will need: A tennis ball, 20 pairs of socks and a target to bowl at.

 

How to:

  • Make a target/ set of stumps and place an object 12 paces away to mark where to bowl from.
  • Place 20 pairs of socks 2 paces in front of the target/stumps (4 rows of 5 pairs).
  • Player bowls the ball and tries to hit the socks and the target/stumps.
  • If the ball hits a pair of socks they are taken away and the player scores 1 point, if the ball hits the target/stumps they also score a point.
  • How many points can the player score in 90 seconds?

 

Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilw9cGh9d7M&feature=youtu.be

 

To make it;

• Easier – Move the target closer e.g. 10 paces rather than 12 or put more than 20 pairs of socks down

• Harder – Bowl from further away e.g. 14 or 16 paces away.

• Inclusive – use a larger but light ball e.g beach ball, volleyball
