Each week we try to get you thinking about PE and being active – it is so important for our physical and mental well-being but of course, when we have very rainy weeks, it can feel a bit daunting going outside – which is why we also like things like Yoga. This week we’re sharing this Cosmic Kids Adventure as it also reminds us how important washing our hands is.
Each week we will give you a task that must be completed, this is your Top Terrific Task.
See Tuesday’s science. This week we are thinking a lot about sea life. For your Top Terrific Task, research 1 or 2 sea creatures and create a fact file, poster or leaflet to share your findings.
Click here to email me your work. I will send you a message back and if I haven’t heard from you by Friday I will get in touch to see if you need any extra help.
There are lots of maths activities on your worksheets this week including lots of work with handling numbers. Being able to work quickly with numbers is very important – it helps us solve problems and ensures that we are able to function well in every day life. If you are good with mental maths you can quickly see if you’ve been given the right change in a shop, or work out how to make a recipe feed more (or less) people. One great way of keeping fast with calculations is playing games. We like this one because you have to use mental maths and also strategic thinking if you want to be the winner. Download the gameboards and instructions here.
Tuesday’s writing activity has you looking at setting. Setting is a very important part of a story and cannot just be left in the background. Harry Potter wouldn’t be the same if it were set in a desert, or under the sea; whilst the characters are very important, the setting also helps to create the story.
On Tuesday you will be creating a seaside setting and there are lots of hints on your worksheets. Watch the video below – it’s a rap with a catchy beat and it helps to show (and remind) you of the importance of setting in your writing.
In science we're
This week we are thinking about sea creatures – did you know that around 70% of the earth’s surface is ocean? There are a lot of creatures in there.
On your worksheet you’ll find a lot of facts about certain creatures, and as part of your science we’d like you to find out more about one or two sea creatures. There is lots of information available online, and we particularly like these National Geographic short films.
