Good Morning Class 4

I hope you're all ok this morning? Did you all have lots of fun in the sun yesterday? It was such a lovely day. smiley
 
Did you guess the answer to my riddle yesterday?


'What has a neck, but no head?'

The answer is 'a bottle'. Well done if you got it right! I know that Asa, Tom C and Charlotte did. yesyes
   
Here are the answers to yesterday's maths activities:

Excellent work yesterday Class 4. I received many wonderful descriptions of your chosen sea creatures; there were a vast range of creatures chosen and I really enjoyed reading about them. Some super project work too.
                                              
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:         
                                                                                                                            
 
 
Reading is the most important task I put on here so please make sure you do it, even if you don't do everything else! 
Your reading task is to read for 30 minutes today. 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:

It's now Thursday, and these are the children who have met their AR reading target: Tom C, Joel, Jasmine, Seth, Jana, Charlotte, Jacob. Well done! There are a few of you who are very close...let's get quizzing! smiley


Maths task:                                                                                                                                                 
 

Please login to the mymaths website using your login details. You can use the link below:

I have set you an activity for today. Year 5s yours is about adding and subtracting fractions, and Year 6s yours is about equivalent fractions. Remember to go through the lesson before you do the questions. If you find it difficult, you can go back to the lesson and have another go at the questions. I will be checking how you're getting on as the day goes on.



Grammar task: 
  

I have attached a link to two grammar activity sheets. There is one for each year group and so please choose the one which is appropriate to you. You can record the answers in your exercise book, and I will put the answers up tomorrow so that you can mark what you have done. 

 
-Year 5 grammar 6.docx-  

 
-Year 6 grammar 6.docx-  



Writing task: 
 
I would like you to use yesterday's writing to create a poem about the sea creature you described. You are aiming to describe the appearance of it, its movement and actions but in the form of a poem.

You can choose any type of poem to write: acrostic, narrative, haiku, shape or a kennings.

You will need to think hard about your use of figurative language and your senses to ensure your poem is as engaging as possible. 



Being kind...
 

Please make an extra effort to make sure you do something lovely today. Why not do something nice for a sibling or a friend?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. Hopefully it'll be sunny again, if it is make sure you enjoy the sunshine and get lots of fresh air.
