Good Morning Class 4

Did you all have a good day yesterday? I hope so. I am missing you all - yes, I really am! It's strange seeing your work and having messages from you but not actually seeing you.          
I hope you were able to go outside and get some fresh air at some point; the weather was lovely.                           

Purple Mash seemed to work better for us yesterday, and I was at least able to see what you had done. When you complete a game, you don't have to submit it like you do a piece of work. Once you've completed the game, it sends me a message with your score and time.

There was some excellent work produced yesterday. Asa was on a role with the maths games as he scored the highest score on both games; his score of 203 on factoroids was very impressive! Adrian wasn't far behind him and on fraction wall Jasmine was a close second. Well done all. I was also lucky enough to see an excellent persuasive leaflet from Joel, Ella and Jacob. Josh's family mapping project is amazing as was Maya's dance. Feel free to send me any of the work you have done at home; I love receiving it.

These are your tasks for today. Remember, you can do the tasks in any order. 

If you haven't already done so, have a look at Joe Wicks 9am PE session each morning. It's a really good workout which you will enjoy! Just type in 'PE with Joe' into youtube. 

Maths task:                                                                                                                                                 
I have uploaded a maths work mat for you to do; there is one for Year 5 and one for Year 6. 

  -Year 5 Maths 1.docx-  

  -Year 6 Maths 1.docx-  
You can write the answers in your exercise books, and I will put the answers up tomorrow so that you can mark your own work.
Reading task:                                                                                                                                     

I would like you to use reading plus for your reading task today. Please login and spend 30 minutes on there completing comprehension activities.

Remember, you can do your Accelerated Reader quizzes at home. Keep working towards your targets.                                                                                                                                  


You should create your own vocabulary bank about your family. Which words are relevant in your family? Try to think of the most engaging vocabulary. This may come in use later in the week for some of your other tasks. 

Writing task:
I would like you to think about your family. What makes your family the same as other families? What makes your family different? What do you love most about your family? I would like you to write a poem about your family. You can choose any type of poem, such as: an acrostic, narrative, kennings or haiku. You can hand write this poem in your exercise book or do it on the computer. 



Learning project:

The focus for this week's project is 'family'.

This afternoon, you can either carry on with the project you started yesterday or you can choose a different one to do or I have assigned you a new Purple Mash task that relates to your family. 

Music from the Past - You can research music from the decade your parents, grandparents or other older family members were born. What were the most popular bands or singers during this time? You could perform a song from this decade and create your very own dance routine. Explain how you need to improve your performance in order to achieve your personal best.
 ● Portraits and Photography- You could take portrait photographs of your family members considering light and textures. Following this, you can then use the photographs to draw portraits in pen considering light and tone.
 ● Classification- You could design a classification key based on the simple physical features of your family. We did these in science earlier this year. You can then test out the keys on each member of your family. Only use ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions.
 ● Nature vs Nurture- Think about your appearance, personality and your dreams for the future. How much of this do you believe is determined by your genes? How much of this is determined by your family/upbringing? Decide which traits are due to nature and which traits are due to nurture e.g. hobbies and interests or sense of humour. Try this out on other family members.
 ● Mapping Skills - Identify the countries or cities within the UK where your family members originate from or live. You can then plot these on a map and then create a bar chart to show the number of family members who live/lived in each city/country.

Have a great day. smiley I'll be in touch again tomorrow.

Take care
