As mentioned, the plan with our activities over the next couple of weeks is to focus on practising key skills to help prepare for the return back to school.
Here is a basic overview of the week. As always, you don’t need to follow this if you don’t wish to.
Today’s focused practice is on subtracting mentally. You should be trying to do these in your head (rather than using a written method.
I would like you all to have a go at Q1 and 2 of the extension questions. For those of you feeling up for a challenge, you could also have a go at Q3 and 4. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, you could also have a go at the challenge question.
TTRS & Spelling Shed
Today for Spelling Shed and TTRS, we are going to have some Hive Games and Arena matches.
TTRS arena games are going to be tricky, but if as many of you as possible plan to go on the Arena game mode at 11:00, then there should be enough to play games against each other.
I have also set up some Hive Games on Spelling Shed – we will start the first of these games at 11:40 and once finished, we will start the next game straight after.
Here are the codes for these games:
GAME 1: 863628
Over the next couple of week, we will have a WCR session every day. These will all link to a certain subject. Today’s is a text about the ancient Greek Olympic games.
Here is your spelling activity for today: ent&ence – (2)
Science / Geography
Seeing as the video earlier in the week was so popular, here is another video for you to watch and make some notes on. Remember, the skill you are looking to practise here is maintaining your concentration/attention for a long time.
We won’t be having any P.E. (physical education) sessions over the next couple of weeks. However, we will be doing a some daily physical activity sessions. Out of interest, the difference between physical activity and physical education is that physical activity is simply completing some exercise – whereas physical education involves specific learning about a physical skill, activity or sport.
For your daily physical activity, I would like you to run, cycle or walk every day (it could just be around your garden – even if it’s quite small!). Then, if you could send me in the distance you have completed (it could be an estimate if you’re not sure), that would be great. A picture of you completing your activity would also be great if you can! The recommended daily physical activity for children (aged 6-17) is at least 60 minutes over a whole day, so for this particular physical activity you could aim for at least 30 minutes.
