Here are the answers to yesterday's grammar activities:

Have a look on the school news page of the website (the homepage) and look out for today's Collective Worship. There will be a fun activity for you to take part in. 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.

I have set you an activity for today. Year 5s yours is about metric conversion, and Year 6s yours is about reflecting shapes.  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.


       
Spelling task: 

 
Please can you choose 5 words at random from the appropriate spelling list below. Please choose words that you haven't used before, and that you can't already spell! I would like you to find out the meaning of your 5 words so that you fully understand them, and then I would like you to write a short tale or story that includes these 5 words. You need to use them in the correct context so that your tale makes sense.

Please underline the 5 spellings (or write them in a different colour) and you could draw me a picture that links to the tale/story if you would like to. You can handwrite this, or you can type it up.

Writing task:
 

Today I would like you to create a poster which will help younger children to learn about where the continents, countries and oceans of the world are.

Your poster should provide key facts that younger children can understand, and an imaginative layout/design to engage them. Make sure your poster is clear and easy to follow.


You can type this up or handwrite it, and it would be great if you could send it to me when you've done it, either through the class email or Purple Mash email

Being kind...

Do something really kind for one of your friends today...


Learning project:

The focus for this week's project is
'around the world'. 

The projects this week aim to provide opportunities for you to learn more about countries and cities around the world. Learning may focus on different cultures and traditions, famous landmarks, food and clothing. 
 
This afternoon, you can either carry on with the project you started yesterday or you can start a new one. smiley
 
Flags of the World- ​Flags are a national symbol for all countries. Cultures use different symbols and colours on their flags which are meaningful to them and represent their history and people. I'd like you to pick 5 countries and investigate their flags. What symbols and colours have they used? Why are these significant to this country? Can you create a flag for the UK which you feel represents our culture, history and people? 

 ● Tastes of the World- ​Children all around the world eat a variety of food and many of the foods we eat today are inspired by other countries. Can you research and make a dish from another country which you have not tried before? You could find a recipe, source the ingredients via an online shop and follow the recipe to create a dish for the whole family. 

 ● International Games- ​As part of the London 2012 Olympics a variety of countries were asked to name a traditional game which represented their culture and traditions. You can see these at the link below. Can you research these games and take inspiration from them to design your own game. Think about how the game is played, how you win and what equipment is needed. Where possible, you should test your game and make any changes needed. Please can you present your game through writing and pictures. These could be handwritten or digital.

 ● From Birmingham to Johannesburg- ​Think about what it would be like to live in another country. Do you think your life would be the same or completely different? Use the ​following clip​ to compare living in Birmingham to Johannesburg. Can you show the similarities and differences between your life and Nwabisa’s life in South Africa. You may wish to show this in a Venn diagram, table or a poster.

 ● Exploring the World- ​Throughout history many people have explored new places. You can find out about some of them ​on the link below​. You could pick an explorer from the list or one of your choice. You should map out the places that the explorer visited or you could create a piece of art inspired by the places they visited using digital images as support. You may wish to write a diary entry from the explorer’s point of view to share what they have seen and experienced.

Sending lots of love
