Good Morning Class 4

Happy Wednesday!
smiley We're already half way through the week, not long until the weekend and half term!

Did you like my joke yesterday? Did it at least make you smile? 

Today, it's riddle time...

'What has a neck, but no head?'

I will let you know the answer tomorrow. Feel free to email me if you think you've worked it out. smiley
   
                                           
 
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

The following children have got some points towards their target this month, and some of them have achieved it. If you're not on this list, it means you haven't done any quizzes since the Easter holidays!

Maths task:                                                                                                                                                 
 
I have uploaded a maths question sheet for each year group today. Click on the correct one for you below:


  -Year 5 Maths 5.docx-  

 
-Year 6 Maths 5.docx-  

  

You can write your answers straight into your exercise book or you can print the sheet off and fill it in. I will put the answers up tomorrow so you can see how you've got on. 
         
       

Spelling task: 
 

Today, I would like you to write a glossary for these sea-related words: estuary, algae, plankton, tsunami ​&​ urchin​.
You can draw illustrations to represent each of these words too. 



Writing task:

Today, I would like you to choose ​one sea creature of interest​. You could watch the video below to give you some ideas.

When you've chosen your sea creature, I would like you to write a description about it in detail. Think about: its appearance, movement and actions. Remember to include ambitious vocabulary and a range of sentence types. Think about your sentence openers and the punctuation you use. 

You can write this in your exercise books or type it on a computer. 



Being kind...
 

I am sure you are all being kind every day, but make an extra effort to make sure you do something lovely today. It can be anything, but it will make someone smile, and that's the main thing! smiley



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. 

This afternoon, you can either continue the project you began yesterday or start a new one.  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 lovely day. Missing you all.
