07 Jun 2020

Hi everyone, it is me again, Mr Gamble.



I hope you all had a great weekend and managed to have fun, even if the weather was a bit wet. I'm only just drying out from taking my dog for a walk and getting getting caught in a horrible downpour yesterday! Still, my dog really enjoyed himself and managed to find every puddle to walk through. He was an extra smelly wet dog when we got back! 

Hopefully after a bit of practice last week I have got the hang of the website a bit more and so it should look a little more like you are used to than last week. yes

I will be teaching all day at Grewelthorpe today, but if you email me I'll try and get back to you as soon as I can. 


Have a look at the below link. There are lots of ideas for different PE type activities that you could do at home; give one a go!

Reading task:                                                                                                                                     
No change here, your reading task is to read for 30 minutes. Remember, when you complete a book, you can still do your AR quiz as you normally would at school. Follow the link below:

Remember if you are beginning to run out of books then go to this page on the website as there is a huge list of suggestions for where to go to find books that are still on AR! 


Please pick 5-10 spellings and learn these over the week. 

After having some practice using the usual look - cover - write - check approach, then try out some of the spelling games we use in school - battleships, invisible man, squares, letter jumble or even water writing outside.


For our writing today we are going to create a poem that links in with our topic work. I would like you to choose an animal from the rainforest and then create an acrostic poem about them. If you remember an acrostic poem is where you write the name of the thing you are writing about down the side of the paper, and then use each letter to start a sentence about the object. I've put a sheet below with some great adjectives on that you might want to use for your poem. If you wanted to you could decorate it too. 









For your maths today I would like you to keep all of the work we did on our tables going before we move to a different area of maths later in the week. 

Please go on Rockstar Maths for about 15 - 20 mins and see how many coins you can get. 

After that I would like you to pick a table to focus on again and then I would like you to play a few games of "Dice Battle" again, but please multiply the numbers instead of adding them. 

You could also multiply the numbers together to make it harder, or you could multiply three dice together. Maybe you want to square or even cube the number! I love this game because there are so many ways you can change it. 

If there were any of the other games from last week that you really enjoyed maybe you could play those too, they will all help to speed up your tables. smiley

Learning Project - to be done throughout the week

The project work this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about the world’s rainforests. Learning may focus on the plants, animals and insects that inhabit the rainforest, food that originates there and weather patterns. It could look at plants and animals that can be found in the garden too. 

 ● Amazing Animals-​ ​Ask your child to think about the following: How many different types of animals live in rainforests? Can they name any? What is their diet like? How do they hunt for their prey or hide from predators? Look at these ​11 amazing rainforest animals​. Encourage your child to choose one of the animals and create a poster all about them. 

 ● Layers of the Rainforest-​ Take a look at ​this​ information with your child, all about the layers of the rainforest.​ ​Ask your child to try creating their own diagram showing the layers of the rainforest and the animals you can find in each layer. Your child could cut and stick pictures, paint or draw!​ ​Can your child categorise the animals? 

 ● Roar!-​ Have a go at ​this​ forest themed GoNoodle! Finished? Ask your child to try making up their own rainforest-themed dance routine to the same song - they could pretend to be a different animal for each dance move! ​Recommendation at least 2 hours of exercise a week.

 ● One Step at a Time- ​Talk to family members about the deforestation of rainforests and think about how we could help by taking small steps at home. This​ article should help get them started! Can your child record their very own advert encouraging people to reduce, reuse, recycle? Encourage them to think about the impact on the environment, animals and their habitats, global warming and the tribes that occupy the rainforests. Alternatively, they could write a jingle about the benefits of recycling and perform this to the family. Share these at ​#TheLearningProjects.

I hope you have a great day, 
Mr G
