HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYONE!

Thank you for all the photos you are sending in of your preparations for V.E. Day tomorrow. You have been very busy. I will post them on the blog tomorrow.

Mrs Tyson has posted a reminder about the safe use of the internet on all the class blogs. Make sure you look at this with a grown-up to remind you of how important it is to stay safe online.

I have put a length activity on Mathletics if you need it as a back up lesson.

Today’s Maths focusses on length.

Spicy / Hot

L.I. – To apply length conversions to problems

Follow the video – remember you can pause and watch again at any point.

Mild

L.I. – To measure and compare lengths.

Have a go at this activity -you will need a ruler or a tape measure.

Measure the length of different objects around your home and outdoor space. You could also measure distances such as the length of your bedroom, your own height etc

Try measuring in mm cm and m.

Record what you measured and what the measurement was in your Home Learning book.

Which was the shortest?

Which was the longest?

Write the objects in order of length starting with the smallest.

ENGLISH

### WE ARE NOW 1ST PLACE ON SPELLING SHED!

4 children in Sycamore are in the top ten scorers.

## A huge well done for all your hard work. 🙂

Your new spellings should be on Spelling Shed. Make sure you understand what each word means. If you aren’t sure, then ask a grown-up or look it up in a dictionary.

There is a SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) focus to today’s lesson.

V.E. DAY –

Activity 4 – Code Breaking /Colouring

Bletchley Park was Britain’s top code-breaking centre and was credited with shortening World War Two in Europe.

The work done there was very important.

Now, it is home to the National Codes Centre and the National Computing Centre.

Station X, a secret radio interception station, was also at Bletchley Park. The information gained by workers at Bletchley Park was very important for the allied war effort.

The Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRENS)

From 1941, Wrens served at Bletchley Park operating machines used in code-breaking.

This was the Mark 2 Colossus computer.

The ten Colossi were the world’s first (semi-) programmable electronic computers, the first having been built in 1943.

Alan Turing

He made major contributions to the fields of mathematics, computer science, and artificial intelligence. He worked for the British government during World War II, when he succeeded in breaking the secret code Germany used to communicate.

This is the statue of him at Bletchley Park:

Below you will find colouring and code breaking activities:
