Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a lovely long weekend.

Did you celebrate V.E. Day? What did you do? Did you make bunting? Did you have a tea party?

I would love to see your photos so that I can share them on the blog for your classmates to see. Here are some that have been sent in:

Don’t forget Fischy Music on YouTube for a good singalong this morning at 11am.

The link below has some suggestions for games that you may have at home, that will help with your maths skills. It also gives a great activity for mapping and talks through some objects from the past to get you thinking!

TODAY’S LEARNING: MATHS, ENGLISH, R.E., STILLING TIME

MATHS

Today’s starter game is revising square numbers.

What is a square number?

A square number is the result when a number has been multiplied by itself.

For example, 25 is a square number because it’s 5 lots of 5, or 5 x 5. This is also written as 52 (“five squared”).

100 is also a square number because it’s 102 (10 x 10, or “ten squared”).

So the first few square numbers are: 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100, 121, 144

Now try the game below – you can jot down the square numbers before you start to help you.

This week’s lesson focus is:

L.I. To convert miles and kilometres.

Everyone should watch the  video even if you decide to choose the Mild activity.

Spicy/ Hot

Follow the usual instructions on the video and have a go at the activity.

Please check Mathletics for any set activities, they are a good revision of the concepts we have covered so far.

Mild

This set on Purple MASH.

It focusses on choosing the correct unit of measurement to measure different objects. I have set this for everybody so if you choose Spicy/ Hot,  you could always have a go at this too for revision.

ENGLISH

What have you been reading at home? Have you used the Oxford Owl website, listened to the next episode of Wind in the Willows on BBC School Radio or read your own books? Whatever you have been reading – keep it up!

L.I. – To write a persuasive letter

Today’s English will put together everything you worked on last week on persuasive writing. I hope you are getting used to the way the lessons work and that you are watching and having a go.

R.E.

L.I. – To explore the story of Esther to identify why she is significant woman in the Bible.

Today’s woman of the Bible is Esther.

Watch the video to find out about why she is a significant..

Esther was significant because of her bravery. She trusted in God to keep her safe.

Have a go at making your own puppets for the story of Esther.

All you need is card – you could use an empty box like a cereal box to cut your puppet shape out of and then attach a  stick to it. If you don’t have any sticks you could use a pencil or you could fold a strip of card.  You could colour it in or use other materials for decoration.

If you wanted to make it a shadow puppet you wouldn’t need to decorate it of course!

Can you work out how to make it into a shadow puppet by shining a bright light behind it so that it casts a shadow onto a wall? – Have a go!

STILLING TIME

Take some time to Chillax…

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Love to you all
