Class 3 - Tuesday 5th May

03 May 2020

 Morning Everyone, how are you all today? Ready and raring to go? Thank you for all the wonderful work that you sent yesterday. Your 3D marshmallow shapes were fantastic! Special mention to Tom, who made a pentagonal based pyramid, Jacob who made a very detailed pentagonal prism and Eliza St who created the only octahedron. I can't wait to see how you get on today. 

As you might have seen yesterday, our learning project this week is Environment. I look forward to seeing your creative ideas on this important topic!


Start the day with some PE or maybe have a PE session later in the day.
OR, YouTube 'PE with Joe' each morning at 9.00 am

Please remember to let  me know what your score is from yesterday test on the 5- 10 spellings that you chose last week Then have a quick practice of this week's spellings before trying this challenge:
Word Jumble: This time it is your turn to mix up the letters of 5 of your spellings to create a jumbled word. Then see if someone in your house can figure out what the word is! Check carefully that they are spelling it correctly! 


Well done everyone we now have over 60% of the class who have achieved their target. That is more than we had in the whole of the last half term! Well done. Keep going! 

Please read for 30 minutes from your current AR home reading book today and quiz if needed. (Remember to keep those quiz scores at 85% or higher!)

 If you are beginning to get short on AR reading books then don't dismay. Click here to find our guide which signposts where to go to find free, books and texts on AR. You can also find this information in the Enrichment section of the website!

Today please start by completing 5 sessions in TT Rock stars again. Well done to Lauren and Henry who did especially well in their Garage sessions and even completed extras! 

Now I would like you to complete this next Marshmallow Shape challenge.
This time using your marshmallows and toothpicks (or similar alternatives - playdo /dried spaghetti etc) create as many different 2D shapes as you can!

Now that  may seem very easy... but then have a go at two of these challenges which will use your 2D shapes: 
1. How many different triangles can you make with marshmallows and toothpicks? Do triangles always have to have sides that are equal lengths? Can you make examples of triangles with non-equal sides? Can you find out their names?

2. How many different prisms can you create? Start making them using the 2D shapes you have already made. What are you adding? What is special about prisms? What is the same and what is different?

3. Make as many different quadrilaterals as you can – can you use a maths website to help you find out their special names?  

4. How many ways can you make a pentagon with marshmallows and toothpicks? Do pentagons always have to have sides that are equal lengths? Can you make examples of pentagons with non-equal sides?

4. When building 3-D structures, which shapes help you build a stronger structure? Which shapes are not as strong? Why do you think this is?

5. How many different types of pyramid can you make? Start with some of the 2D shapes you made. What is the same in every pyramid? What is different?

I would love to see how you get on! (You can now eat the marshmallows... if they are clean enough?!) 
Your writing task today in on Purple Mash

I would like you to think about the book you are currently reading or have recently finished and pretend that you have interviewed the main character. Use the 2Do on Purple Mash to record the questions you have asked them and the character's answers. This task uses your empathy skills - imagining you are the character and thinking about how they would feel! There are some good prompts in the 2Do if you are finding it tricky to think! 

If I were interviewing a character in my book (The Boy At The Back Of The Class) I would ask him; "How did you feel when the shop keeper gave you the pomegranate?" And I think the reply would have been; " I was really happy that we had found some, so I was even more when he gave us them too! He was a really kind man, not like the man in the supermarket, who was horrible. I cannot wait to give it to the new boy!"

 Learning Project:  The Environment.

Your learning may focus on changes to different environments, the impact of humans on environments, climate change etc. As usual use these ideas as a starting point but follow your own interests and creative ideas for how you explore this learning. 

● Let’s Wonder: 
 What is the weather like around the world? Which countries are most likely to have a snowstorm, torrential rain, heatwaves etc Find out about natural disasters such as forest fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, tornados etc. How is climate change having an effect on the weather and natural disasters? 

 ● Let’s Create:   
Using recycled materials design and make a recycling mascot to spread the word about the importance and need to recycle. Think about what it is going to look like? Which materials are they going to use? How are you going to join the materials together? Once completed, remember to evaluate your mascot. What would you do differently next time? Which parts did you find the most challenging and why?  
 ● Time to Talk:  
 Discuss environmental issues in the UK. ​Air pollution​, ​climate change​, litter, waste,​ and ​soil contamination​ are all examples of human activity that have an impact in the UK. What are global environmental issues? Various processes that can be said to contribute to the global environmental problems include pollution, global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, depletion of natural resources, overpopulation, waste disposal and deforestation ... These processes have a highly negative impact on our environment. Decide as a family how you could ‘do your bit’ to look after their environment e.g. you could​ set up a recycling station in their home; Paper, plastics and glass. 

 ● Understanding Others and Appreciating Differences: 
 Throughout our lives, culture and experience shapes worldviews, children growing up in the Netherlands, for example, have a much different understanding of the role of water in their lives than their peers in the Sahara Desert. The difference between the abundance and scarcity of water in each of these physical environments affects every aspect of their respective cultures, including the global perceptions they will carry with them throughout their lives.
Think about food. How do you think people view food in the UK compared to those living in Ethiopia for example? Research a country where food and water are scarce. Find out about charities that help people in need, ​Red cross​, ​Christain Aid​, ​Islamic Relief​ or other charities that are significant to you.

Have fun with your learning today! Make sure you are helping around the house and supporting your Mums and Dads.
