Today is the start of your half term holidays. We are not setting you any work today for next week as we want you to relax, have a break and enjoy your free time with your families. If you are looking for some nice activities to do during the holidays, remember you can look on the Fun ideas page, and if you want to listen to a story, have a look in Story Corner

For those of you who will be celebrating, we wish you a very happy Eid - we know the celebrations are not going to be quite the same as usual this year, but we hope you have a lovely time with your family at home.

Mrs Ishaq has already been busy decorating her house ready for Eid! 

 

Have a lovely break and we will be back after the holidays with some new home learning activities!

From Mrs Ishaq, Miss Firth and Miss Kent

Wednesday 20th May 2020

Good morning. We hope you are all well. Here is your work for Wednesday.

Let's start the day with a few exercises.

Maths

We are going to look at money again today. Remember, we can make the same amount of money in different ways by using different coins. Today we are going to look at how many coins we would need if we only used one type of coin to make an amount.

Work out how many coins I would have in my purse. You can ask an adult to borrow some coins to help you, or you could draw a purse and draw the coins you would need. Remember that counting in 2s, 5s or 10s will help you work out the answer.

  1. I have 8p in my purse in 2p coins. How many coins do I have?
  2. I have 50p in my purse in 10p coins. How many coins do I have?
  3. I have 15p in my purse in 5p coins. How many coins do I have?
  4. I have 20p in my purse in 2p coins. How many coins do I have?
  5. I have 35p in my purse in 5p coins. How many coins do I have?

 

Challenge

Can you find a way to make 62p using exactly 3 coins? Which coins did you use? Now can you find a way to make 62p using exactly 4 coins? Which coins did you use? Can you think of any other ways you could make 62p using exactly 4 coins?

 

English

Creative Curriculum

Today I want you to pretend you are a pirate and have a go at making your own treasure map. You may wish to include all the things you have learnt this topic in your map. For example, maybe your map will include a lighthouse, or maybe you will add some physical and human features. You may also wish to include forests, sandy beaches, quicksand, a cave, lakes, mountains or whatever you decide. Maybe you could even give these features pirate names.

Challenge

Create a simple key for your map and decide on the best place to hide treasure!

Key - A map key uses symbols, colours or lines to show the important landmarks on a map, like a road or a mountain. A key is usually at the side of the map and helps people looking at the map understand what the symbols mean.

Tuesday 19th May 2020

Good morning, we hope everyone is well. Here is your work for Tuesday.

Let's get moving with a few exercises.

Maths

If there is a missing number in an addition question and the numbers are close together, the easiest way to solve it is to count from the smallest number to the biggest number.

If there is a missing number in an addition question and one of the numbers is very small, it might be easier to change the question into a subtraction. Put the biggest number at the start and then count backwards from the biggest number.

 

Work out the missing numbers in these questions. Try to choose the quickest way to work out the answer.

English

Today we are going to watch our new story ‘The Night Pirates’ and see if your predictions came close to the story.

Activity: Watch the story and then find out what these words from the story mean using a dictionary or Google dictionary. The words are:

  • Snoozing
  • Stealthy
  • Gaped
  • Bandits
  • Goggled
  • Fearsome

 

Challenge: See if you can find the meanings of any other words from the book.

Today we are going to be thinking about our feelings and emotional well being. First read these feeling words and talk about what they mean. Talk about how and when you have felt like this.

Now look through the presentation, click to go on the next page.

Don’t forget it’s good to talk about your feelings and it’s okay to be a little unsure at a time like this.

Next have a go at drawing yourself and write down some feelings that you have had during lockdown. Here is an example of what your work may look like:

 

We would love to hear about all your feelings and we are always here to listen.
