MATHS:

Number Warm-Up

Decimals as Fractions

It's break time!

Have 20 minutes of exercise, fresh air, relaxation and a snack if you have one.

Go to the toilet, wash your hands and then return ready to learn.

20 - 30 minutes of reading by an adult: demonstrating good practice and modelling fluency, pace and expression. Let's begin our class book - this time we are looking at graphic novels - let me know if you like the format.

Reading for pleasure: here are the first few pages:

SPELLING:

I hope you are having something healthy, nutritious and tasty!

PE with Ms Hadland this term is HOCKEY!

Now, this may be a little difficult at home - mind the ornaments!

No outside space - maybe a trip to the park or a grass area nearby.

No hockey stick at home - try dribbling a ball with your feet through a range of obstacles.

What about using a straw. a small tightly rolled up piece of paper and a few objects to steer around on the table top! How much puff do you have? How much control can you master?

Can you steer the 'hockey ball' in and out of the obstacles.

As you gain more control, move the objects closer and closer.

Time yourself - how quickly can you finish the obstacle course.

Can you beat the family?

Put your names on your straws so you know whose is whose.

Keep your COVID germs to yourself!

SCIENCE:

Classifying Animals, Plants and Humans

Last week we started this area of learning by looking at similarities and differences.

We started off with some outdoor learning playing a physical game of 'Guess Who?'

Maybe you could play this game with your family. Remember, to think carefully about how you phrase your question and that you can only answer yes or no.

Then, below are 2 sheets: one which explains a possible classification 'yes/no' tree.

The second sheet has a selection of animals for you to classify.
