Each week we try to get you thinking about PE and being active – it is so important for our physical and mental well-being. Another important side to staying active is variety, but sometimes this can be hard, especially if we think we need specialist equipment – so this week we’re sharing this cricket idea with you. If you thought you needed special equipment to play cricket, think again!
Each week we will give you a task that must be completed, this is your Top Terrific Task.
This week all of your Maths tasks can be photographed. I would like you to send me pictures of one of your maths tasks from this week. This can be your shape picture (Monday), a symmetry picture (Tuesday), a repeated pattern (Wednesday), ordering lengths (Thursday) or maths in the world pictures (Friday).
You can send me more than one task if you wish as I love to see your pictures!
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.
This week, you will be doing lots of work looking for and creating maths around you. Maths is all around us – symmetry, shape, angles – we can find all these things just by looking, more than that, it is by understanding maths that engineers, architects and designers manipulate things in order to create our world. Have you ever wondered how come a floor holds us up, or how bridges can carry such weight?
This week you will need to do a lot of work exploring the language that we use. Sometimes we speak (and read) our own language so easily that we forget to explore the words that we use. If we think more deeply about authors’ choices of words, not only do we get a better understanding of our own language but we also develop and improve the vocabulary at our fingertips. If you haven’t got a dictionary or thesaurus to hand – we think Word Hippo is a great website (click on the picture for link).
In history this week we're thinking about
The growth of the railway network led to the development and expansion of British seaside towns- meaning that people could use the trains and railways to travel to different destinations. After watching this short film, can you think about the impact the development of the railways had on people’s lives?
