It is Friday which means you've made it through a whole week. I am incredibly proud of all of your efforts as I know how hard you've all been trying. Keeping up with the work I'm asking you to do isn't easy, but nothing worth doing is ever easy.
Remember that you will reap what you sow: This means that the more you put in to life, the more you will get out of it.
I have been keeping up with your home projects on the school's Twitter account and I am so unbelievably impressed. I love to see you working collaboratively with your brothers and sisters, achieving so much.
Keep it up Robins!
Please look at the attached Powerpoint and complete the questions. There is a separate one for Year 3 and Year 4, however, you can always complete both.
Year 3 and those who usually complete Year 3 work – You can complete all of the attached PowerPoint today. Questions 2 and 3 will need to be drawn on paper. Remember to use a ruler and a sharp pencil. Year 4 can also do the Year 3 Bar Graph work if you want to. It is a really fun activity
Year 4 – Please complete all of the 'adding fractions' PowerPoint below. Complete all of the questions on paper as we would usually do in class.
Remember that when you add fractions, so long as the denominator is the same, the denominator stays the same and you only add the numerator. I would always go back to fractions which I can imagine in my head to check. For instance, what if I ate ¼ of a pizza and then another ¼, I would have eaten 2 quarters of a pizza or ½.
Please find attached a 5 minute warm up from the Body Coach:
Today I would like you to practice your ball control skills with somebody else. This could be a brother or sister, Mum or Dad, or failing that you could do these activities up against a wall.
How many passes can you make to each other in a set time? Perhaps 1 minute. Have a few goes to see if you can improve each time. Remember the techniques we worked on in PE lessons:
- Give your partner a target
- Fingers up or down not straight at your partner
- Follow through with your throwing arm straight at your partner
How to make it tougher:
- You must be more than a metre apart
- You must be moving to receive the ball
- Try with a bigger/ smaller ball
- Use both hands/ one hand/ left hand/ right hand
We have thought about the Amazon Rainforest being destroyed for humans to use the resources found there. We have also imagined how the animals which live there are becoming endangered because of the loss of their habitat. Unfortunately, animals are being endangered all over the world including from the United Kingdom.
Below is a PowerPoint slide with countries from all around the world.
Choose a country and search for which animals are endangered there. Once you have found an animal then write a short fact-file about it. Can you write fact-files for animals from 5 different countries? Your fact-file could also include a drawing. The first one that interested me was Alaska so I searched Google for Alaska Endangered Animals. This is my fact-file I came up with:
|Animal: Polar Bear|
|Where: Polar bears live along the north of Alaska in the Arctic Circle|
Size: Male Polar Bears can reach 1300 lbs.They can reach 10 feet tall.
|Diet: Polar Bears mostly eat seals. They use floating sea ice as a platform to spot their prey.|
|Threats: Mostly climate change but Polar bears are also victims of hunting and loss of habitat.|
I have also attached some links to helpful websites if you are not sure what to search for.
This one is Tasmania:
Optional Additional Tasks
Rhyming Word Game
Play tthis on your own or with someone else. Think of a word and then write as many words that rhyme with it in 1 minute. If the word was Cat (like Flapjack's CVC word yesterday!) you could use hat, mat, sat etc. I think you could come up with much better words than that though. Here are some to start you off:
