I hope everyone is settling back into the rhythm of things this week. See below for some learning activities and learning games. Don’t forget to share your learning with me using the upload link on the school website.
Something new to do or explore
I would like you to focus on handwriting over the next while. Please find the link below for Part 1.
Please see below for some fun times tables activities. You can choose which one you would like to do according to where you are in your times tables learning. You should be able to remember which times table you were on before we broke up for Easter.
Keep learning your times tables. All the hard work is paying off!!! (https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/)
I hope you have all logged onto Discovery Education. If not and you are having difficulties, please email the school and the message will be passed on to me. I will get back to you with a solution as soon as I can.
On the front of the learning pack you received, there was a username and password for a resource called ‘Discovery Education’. On Discovery Education you will find lots of different resources to support your child’s learning. Check out the section ‘Espresso’ – ‘KS2’.
I hope you have been able to log into Discovery Education. Today, I would like you to do the following activities.
Once in the section KS2, please go to ‘English’ – ‘Grammar and punctuation’ – ‘Punctuation’ – ‘Introduction to speech marks’ – Watch the video. Have a go at the quizzes and activity afterwards.
Things to continue with
If you click on one of the four operations (+ – X ÷), it will bring you to a screen with lots of different activities. You can then choose for yourself the level of challenge you wish to have.
Mental Maths Train is a maths game which focuses on the essential vocabulary of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It can help children to understand what type of calculation they have to do when faced with word problems.
It is a multiple choice game that is suitable for children from 5 to 11 years of age. Mental Maths Train is also good for consolidation of times tables knowledge.
For the best experience press the full-screen icon in the top right corner of the game. As with all of our games, Mental Maths Train is tablet friendly and it works well on an interactive whiteboard.
The next area of science we will be looking at is light and shadow.
The link provided will allow you to find a set of questions to base some research around. This can be done as an online activity or by setting up a real world experience. What shadows do you see in and around your home? Can you draw them or take pictures of them?
