Hi everybody, I hope you all had a nice week off. The weather was outstanding and I’m sure you all spent plenty of time outdoors. Remember it is important to get lots of fresh air and exercise.
If you’re wondering what is going to happen as far as going back to school, so I’m I. I know the comprehensive schools are starting to think about ways of informing you about next year. Cwmtawe have sent a letter which I have placed on our class blog. I’m sure Birchgrove will be doing the same soon.
Below are the activities for today.
• I have placed more maths lessons on Neo. Concentrate on ‘Metric Conversion’ for the first half of this week. Watch the videos and answer the questions. I will ask you to do an idoceo connect based on this at the end of the week. • I have placed a challenge on Sumdog based on metric conversions. Try to do 15 minutes a day. I will give you 50 coins for every day you go on Sumdog for 10 minutes plus. • For English I have placed a book review type activity on Seesaw about what you are reading at the moment. • I have placed an Olympic task on Seesaw based on the fastest men’s running times. • Chapter 13 of Holes.
Please get in touch with me if you have any questions. Remember to keep active and get outside as much as you can.
I hope you all had a nice weekend. This is the week before half term on Friday. I received some wonderful work last week. There was some excellent work on the Olympics, paintings of The Great Wave and videos of pupils making cakes. Keep it up! I will continue to post a daily list of work on Neo. I am posting most of the work on Seesaw so please keep on visiting. Here are today’s activities:
You can remind yourself how to work out equivalent fractions by watching the video and answering the questions on SEESAW. Later on in the week we will be adding and subtracting fractions and you will need the equivalent fractions skill.
I have given you the choice of three photos for your 100 word challenge on SEESAW.
I have placed chapter 11 and 12 of Holes on Neo.
There is a Countdown challenge on SEESAW.
Daily to do’s include: I have placed a tables challenge on Sumdog. Try to do 10-15 minutes per day. (There’s is also a spelling and grammar section on Sumdog which you can access.) Reading
Please get in touch with any questions or if you are not sure of anything.
I’ve placed an art lesson on SEESAW based on a famous piece of Japanese art called ‘The Great Wave’. Follow the YouTube tutorial to create your own ‘Great Wave”. I can’t wait to see your creations. Please take a photo and upload it to me.
Carrying on from yesterday’s ‘Olympic Host City’ work, keep the same city but this time find out about a famous Olympian from that games. Look at my example to see how to do it. If you’d prefer to do it on J2e or Word or anything else, let me know so I can see it. SEESAW
A maths challenge on SEESAW that gradually gets harder. How far can you go?
I will be posting the weekly list of things we are covering on Monday morning. If you want to see the daily breakdown then visit Neo.
Please message me at any time with questions or suggestions. I’m sure you can come up with more interesting things to do than me!
I’ve set four activities today. Remember, If you want to do something else, please take a photo and upload to Seesaw.
The first half of the maths revision sheet. SEESAW Work out the big number on Countdown. SEESAW Using personification in a setting. Follow the BBC lesson then write your own personification setting about a dust storm in Australia. SEESAW Holes chapter 10 on Neo.
I know this has been going on for a long time now but keep trying to do 1-2 hours a day. Keep up with your reading.
Just a quick reminder about using Neo to revise maths. There are tutorials and quizzes on many of the topics year 6 need to cover. Test yourself to make sure you have the skills and watch my tutorials to improve your maths. You can redo any quiz up to 5 times. There are points and badges to be earned!
I have placed chapter 8 and 9 of Holes on Neo.
Write sentences based on the Vocabulary Ninja list. SEESAW
Find the weight of food in your cupboard. Estimate then convert from grams to kilograms. SEESAW
There is a bank holiday on Friday so this will be the last day of work I will be posting this week. Remember that we are having a bank holiday on Friday because it is 75 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe on the 8th May 1945 (known as VE Day). Perhaps you have relatives who lived through those times. If you can find out what those times were like, I’m sure it would be very interesting.
This link will give you a better understanding of why we have the VE Day commemorations.
On Seesaw today I have placed the second part of the maths revision sheet.
Also on Seesaw, I have asked you to explain one skill from the maths revision sheet. You can watch my example and if you are able to then follow the instructions to create your own explanation video on Seesaw.
I have set a 100 word challenge. Look at the picture and read the example text from Alien Landing.
Continue to use the Neo Numeracy tutorials and quizzes. Try one a day to keep your skills sharp.
