Wow another week of home learning almost done! Give yourselves a P-A-T on the B-A-CK !
Well done to the winners of yesterday’s friendly little class Sumdog competition…
And also a big well done to those of you who did your spelling test on Sumdog too. I can see that the results look really, really good.
Also some very exciting news…today is the start of the Lambeth Sumdog Competition! Which means that we will be competing against different classes from across the local area to see who will be the Sumdog Champions. You should be able to see the leader board when you log in and all the points that you score will go towards the class overall score. Let’s try and win this Platypus class – so get Sumdogging!
Also as an added incentive I have decided that if we make it into the top 5 classes then I will do a special forfeit challenge and video it for you. Possibly a bucket of freezing cold water over my head… if you have any other ideas post a comment on the blog and let me know. I will decide on Monday.
Right let’s start today’s learning :
Maths Home Learning
Today is Maths challenge day so check out some of these tricky problems on the BBC bitesize website https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6rpnrd
I am totally stuck on these so please help me out and show me how to solve them in your blue books.
Here is another little number game that you might want to try at home if you have some dice (you can find interactive ones online) https://nrich.maths.org/10090
Reading Home Learning
Today’s English focuses on our reading and understanding of stories. You will be hearing part of a ‘Daisy’ story (which I love – I think grown-ups enjoy these stories as much as children) and have to answer some questions about it.
There is also an extract for you to try reading. You might need an adult to help but give it a good go! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrtjqp3
This is a painting by the artist Paul Klee and it is called ‘Castle and Sun’
Try describing the painting – what do you see?
What do you notice about how the artist has created his painting?
How do the painting make you feel?
Now have a go at creating your own art work based on the picture.
- Look at Paul Klee ́s image Castle and the Sun.
- Leave the image up on the computer as a guide.
- Use the cut out cardboard shapes to trace around.
- When you are happy with your picture go over their pencil lines with a crayon or pen.
- Then colour in the shapes in different colours.
- Paint a background.
Sorry I did have a video to upload of me reading story for you but I had some technical difficulties. I will try and get it out to you on Monday! Stay tuned…
Have a great weekend!
