Today’s Home Learning: MATHS, ENGLISH, TOPIC, STILLING TIME
There was a surprise visitor to the playground this morning – can anyone spot what type of bird it is?
Mrs Ashworth thinks it is one of the chickens having a Mufti Day!
Tonight at 8pm there is another national Clap for our Carers. If it isn’t past your bedtime your parents might let you join in.
Today we are going to do a mixed arithmetic paper. This paper reflects what is expected for the end of Year 5 in Arithmetic. It suggests that you complete the paper in 20 minutes, so time yourself if you would like a challenge. If not, just work through it at your own pace, doing the questions that you can do. You can do this in your Home Learning book – remember to put the question number.
There might be a number of questions that are challenging for you. When you have had a go, have a look at the answers to see how it is done.
There will also be a few questions on the paper that we haven’t covered yet e.g. multiplying fractions and ones that we haven’t done in a while, like cube numbers, so don’t worry if you don’t know how to do them yet.
Make sure you then take some time to go through the answers, maybe with a grown-up, so that you can see how to answer them for the future.

We’re 1st place on the Spelling Shed leader board – well done Sycamore!
I have set spellings today for you to learn over the Easter break. Your grown up will be asked to test you the first week back on the Thursday.
complete the activities below.
L.I. To spell polysyllabic words with unstressed vowels.
KAPPA – OMEGA SPELLING ACTIVITIES
Creating Mnemonics Activity Sheet
ANSWERS – KAPPA / OMEGA
ANSWERS – KAPPA – OMEGA SPELLING ACTIVITIES
Ask an adult to check you answers for the Mnemonics sheet.
complete the activity below- you can ask an adult to mark it for you.
L.I. – To spell words using an apostrophe for plural possession.
Pi Spellings – Plural Apostrophe
You can get a grown up to check your work or email it to me.
L.I. – To practise spellings within a full sentence.
If you are working on individual spellings, then I would like you to practise your spellings by writing a sentence for each word in your list of spellings. Remember to use a capital letter and a full stop. Ask a grown up to mark it for you.
L.I. – To use the eight points of the compass.
The document below has each task followed straight away by the answer sheet – no peeking!
GEOGRAPHY – COMPASS POINTS – 2-4-20 (PLUS ANSWERS)
Write the answers in your book.
MILD – 1 star
SPICY – 2 star
HOT – 3 star
As a further challenge try creating your own map. You could produce one like the ones on the worksheet or come up with your own ideas. Have a go at using the eight points of the compass. Maybe you could use a room in your house and ask directions from one object to another. If you have an outside area, you could map out the main features and direct someone around it. Or, you could place objects around the area to navigate in between. You might decide to use a map of a country and give directions between cities or key landmarks like the HOT sheet.
Make it more exciting by leaving a treasure at the last place – it could be a message or a treat! Good Luck!
You could do this by colouring in a picture or by drawing a picture yourself to colour in.
Use the prompt below whilst you are colouring.
Mindful Colouring prompt- 2-4-20
Linking in with the Science from this week, I have attached some birds colouring sheets below if you would like to use them.
Mindfulness colouring – British Birds
Enjoy the rest of your day – see you tomorrow!
Morning Sycamore Class and Mrs Padfield – I’m definitely following your blog now that you are birdwatching! It has been the highlight of my enforced stay at home. We have families of chaffinches, goldfinches, blue tits and robins in our garden so I’m actually quite relieved I haven’t seen a sparrow hawk!
I hope you have managed to get into the routine of working from home – the two weeks Easter holiday is nearly here. I hope you can join us for another worship with Craig and myself tomorrow.
Thank you Mrs Thomas. Yes we have had a lot of fun with the bird watching. I had an photo of an unusual bird sent in to me yesterday. I will put it on tomorrow’s blog – see if you know what it is! We’re all looking forward to assembly with you and Craig tomorrow 🙂
Happy Thursday lovelies! I’ve really enjoyed catching up with everything you are doing at home- what fantastic work! I’m missing you all lots and I’m keeping busy trying to entertain Lottie, Louis and Theo although apparently Lottie and Louis both prefer their real teachers! Sending you all lots of Love. Mrs Nicks xx
Hi Mrs Nicks – lovely to hear from you. Sounds like you’re busy as usual! Love to you all xxx
Ahh I’m missing you all too. Mrs G. ?
