You will find a reasoning task on Seesaw. I will show the answer tomorrow.
We will be revising mean, mode or modal, median and range. There is a practise task on Seesaw. If you are unsure of this topic visit Neo Numeracy to watch tutorials and try quizzes. Tomorrow I will be setting you an idoceo quiz.
Read chapter 6 of Holes on Neo.
Science - Why exercise is important to our health. Think of the activities you undertake. Seesaw.
I hope you all had a nice weekend. Please remember that there are lots of maths tutorials on Neo. This is an ideal time to brush up on your skills ready for the comp. I will be setting some idoceo quizzes this week. Also, Sumdog now has spelling games alongside the maths. Try to do 10 minutes of each a day.
• Holes- chapter 3 and 4 on NEO (If you haven’t already enrolled, go to the catalogue and the English section.) I know some of you have started chapter 3 but I have added the rest.
• The Sky at Night- I have placed a sheet on SEESAW. It asks you to find a couple of constellations (groups of stars) and look at the different phases of the moon for a month. Just tell me what you have spotted. There are brilliant apps out there that show you where the stars are by holding up your phone or tablet to the sky.
• Ninja Vocabulary - on SEESAW.
• Times tables and division quiz on a new platform called QUIZIZZ. Follow the link and enter your name (no nicknames). Tell me what you think.
I hope you all had a good holiday and are ready to start some work. Please get in touch if you are not sure of anything. If you are logged in to Neolms.eu then you can answer to the thread where everyone else will see your question or you can just message me separately.
I will place my email on the bottom of the blog if you are unable to access any of our systems. (Please get in touch to sort this out.)
Here are today’s tasks:-
1. SUMDOG - I have set a times tables check where you can find out what tables you need to work on.
2. SEESAW - What is your favourite number?
3. SEESAW - Vocabulary Ninja: write sentences using the words.
4. I have added extra classes in the Numeracy section of NEO. Try completing the addition and subtraction class to gain lots of points and TWO mastery badges.
5. SEESAW - Read the story ‘Staying Out’ in preparation for a story you will write this week.
Our topic this term is ‘The Olympics’. I know it has been postponed to next year but it is such an interesting topic. Our science is staying healthy and the human body.
A challenge I set at the beginning of this topic is to learn all the Summer Olympic host cities from 1896 to present day.
You should be aiming to do between 1-2 hours of concentrated work a day. From feedback before the holiday break, the work I was setting was taking between 45 minutes to an hour to complete.
Look in the shared file on the Olympics in Hwb for ideas of missions you could carry out.
I am looking forward to seeing all the amazing work.
Thank you for the work you have been doing at home. I have been amazed by the different activities that have been submitted to me through Neo, Seesaw and iDoceo.There are also activities in our shared folder on J2e. If you are bored and looking for something to do, there is plenty for you to get on with.
I can see that many of you have been using Sumdog. We have been using it in school and at home for maths but you can now also use it for spelling and grammar practice. Give it a go.
If you are struggling for books to read, go to Oxford Reading Buddy.
I will upload the remaining chapters of ‘The Nowhere Emporium’ on Seesaw. (There are 6 chapters left.)
Daily To Do's - keep reading, have fun and keep active!
As a bit of fun, we have created a mini project for you to complete over the next two weeks of Easter.
We want you to create your own characters using eggs to make one of the following; • short story • animation • comic • comic strip
These could be completed using any resources that are available, e.g. on paper, on HWB, using Seesaw or using Puppet Pals.
Finally, we’ll update challenges and activities after the Easter Break!

Hi everyone. Hope you have had a good week. Here are today’s activities.
Work on any maths you are struggling with. It could be a times tables you do not know or head over to Neo and the numeracy class.
Reasoning - see finger puppets question on Seesaw.
Sumdog have given us access to spelling and grammar. Give it a go.
Find a country with a population as close to 10 million (10 000 000) as possible. Try to work out the difference between the population of the country you have chosen and 10 million. (Remember you can add anything to Seesaw and I will see it.)
I have added the next chapter of The Nowhere Emporium to Seesaw.
1, Maths - Large Numbers. If you haven’t already, or you feel you need to do some revision on large numbers to millions, follow the tutorials on NEO - LNF Numeracy - Large Numbers to millions. When finished revising, complete the IDOCEO CONNECT pin: 70468
2. SEESAW Find a country with a population of at least a million. Write the population in figures and words. Find out its flag and any other interesting facts.
(As an extension you could find out the countries with the smallest and largest populations in the world and work out the difference).
3. Play a board game. You might like to make your own and post a photo on SEESAW.
4. SUMDOG - Continue to improve your tables.
5.Reading - The Nowhere Emporium on SEESAW. I have placed chapters 29 and 30 on SEESAW.
You can see our class rainbow collage below. Well done everyone.
1, Maths - Long Multiplication. Like yesterday I have posted a tutorial on Seesaw with some practise questions. There are also tutorials on NEO. (I will just show the grid method. If you want to use another way, whatever works for you.) When you feel confident, complete the idoceo connect, pin: 71511
2. Reading - Chapter 28 of The Nowhere Emporium in the Analyse and Infer lesson.
4. English - Write a paragraph explaining how the eye works. Look at the instructions and information slide on SEESAW.
5. Molly’s suggestion - Draw a rainbow. Post your pictures on SEESAW. I will create a collage of all your rainbows and post it Thursday on our blog page. So get your felts, pencils, crayons, tablets or mice out and make it colourful!
Talking about rainbows made me think of a TV show I watched as a kid (believe it or not, I once was a kid!). Check out the theme tune: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=u9fhOPHtOtw
REMEMBER - Read, read, read, read, read. At the moment you are stuck in your house. Reading a book can take you to another time, place or universe!
