Good Morning Class 4

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend?


As it is Monday, I have a disney clip for you. Just click here and enjoy... 
  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JB5i6kgkvCg

Hopefully, you are now smiling. smiley I chose this clip because it links to this week's theme of 'under the sea', but also if you haven't watched Moana before, it's worth a watch! 

Remember that if you would like to send me examples of your work or simply want to tell/ ask me something then you can use Purple Mash email or the class email address: class4@gfschools.co.uk 

These are your tasks for today. Remember, you can do the tasks in any order, and you don't have to do everything if you don't have time. yes 



PE:

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:                                                                                                                                     
 
Just for a change, your reading task for today is to read for at least 30 minutes!You should use your reading book for AR. Remember, when you complete a book, you can still do your AR quiz as you normally would at school. Follow the link below:


https://ukhosted79.renlearn.co.uk/6706937/
                 

You have this week to meet your half term AR reading target so let's get quizzing! Those children who have already met their target are: Tom C, Joel, Jasmine, Jana, Charlotte and Jacob. Jasmine, you have met your target 7 times over, by 700%. That is incredible! 



Maths task:                                                                                                                                                 
 

It's really important to me that you are all keeping up with your times tables, hopefully learning new ones, but certainly not forgetting any! 

Therefore today, we are going to focus only on times tables. I want you to spend at least 20 minutes on ttrockstars. I have set up a battle for today, it's boys versus girls - let's see who wins!! I have also set other sessions to see how you get on individually.  

You should then spend 10/15 minutes on Sumdog. I will be checking that too to see how you're getting on.

Here are the links:


https://www.sumdog.com/user/sign_in

                                                                                                               

Spelling task:     
  

Please practise the Year 5 and 6 common exception words in your exercise books. Spend around 15 minutes on this task. Ensure that you choose spellings that you don't already know how to spell. Remember, there are two sheets for you to choose from now, but please make sure you don't choose words you can't already spell!


  -Year 5 and 6 common exception words.doc-  

  -KS3-Spelling-Lists.pdf-  

If you're used to doing the high frequency words instead, here is a list of the second 100 high frequency words for you to carry on with.


  -2nd 100 high frequency words .pdf-  

 
Writing task:

 

Today, I would like you to write a diary entry based on a day in the life of a deep sea diver. You might need to do some research first to give you an idea of what a day in their shoes (or flippers) would be like. Feel free to use your imagination when describing what they might see under the water. 
 
 
 

 
I have put a '2do' on Purple Mash for you to do this, or as usual you can do it by hand or on a computer.

Being kind...


It has been a really long time since we were at school together. Today, I would like you to get in touch with one of your friends who you haven't spoken to in a while. Check how they are, have a chat, tell them a joke; ultimtely cheer them up. smiley I will do the same! 

                                             

Learning project:


The focus for this week's project is 'under the sea'. 

The projects this week aim to provide opportunities for you to learn more about life in and around the sea. Learning may focus on the strange and wonderful creatures and plants that occupy our oceans, their habitats and how human beings affect this environment. 

Choose one of these projects to start this afternoon. smiley
 
Working Together to Save Our Oceans -​ The ​BBC programme Blue Planet 2​ sparked ​an outcry about the health of our oceans and the huge threat caused by plastics, but lots of people around the world are working hard to help solve this problem. Have a ​read about Madison Edwards​, a 12 year old environmental activist. Can you do your bit to help preserve our oceans by keeping a ‘​plastic diary​’ recording how much single-use plastic your family uses. Write down one thing​ that your family will do to use less plastic.

 ● Speeding Through The Seas- ​Sailfish are the ​fastest fish in the ocean​. Can you be just as speedy and complete the following 5 activities as fast as possible: Star jumps, tuck jumps, press-ups, squats and lunges. Record how many repetitions of each activity you can perform in 1 minute. Can you beat your personal best? Can you record your heart rate (beats per minute) after each activity?             
 ● Pirates: Daring Figures of History or Brutal Sea-Thieves?- ​Many books have been written and movies made about pirates. But who were the real pirates of the past? Can you explore​ these facts about real pirates from history? You could create a fact file or information report about what you have learned, including key dates and figures. Alternatively, you could create a ‘wanted’ poster for a pirate, including facts about his/her deeds and adventures.

 ● Bioluminescence: Lighting up Our Oceans -​ ​Many sea creatures possess a fascinating light-producing ability called ​bioluminescence​. ​Some fish dangle a lighted lure in front of their mouths to attract prey, while some squid shoot out bioluminescent liquid, instead of ink, to confuse their predators. Find out about bioluminescence​ and how ​some sea creatures rely on this​ for their survival. You could then choose a sea creature which uses bioluminescence (like the anglerfish) and create a poster fact sheet about it, including what bioluminescence is and how your chosen sea creature uses it. 

 ● Artwork to Light up Your Life​- ​Following on from what you learned about bioluminescence, create a bioluminescent sea creature inspired piece of artwork. Based on the resources you have available at home, you could choose to express this as a​ ​drawing​ ​or as a​ ​mode​l​. ​Use bright colours and try to be as realistic as possible.


Have a great day everyone, and I really look forward to seeing what you've done. 

Take care 

Mrs Barker
