Imádtuk olvasni a múlt héten megjegyzéseit. Nézze meg, ki tudja-e deríteni, milyen nyelvet használtunk ezen a héten.
We are very proud of everyone who is completing some work each week and impressed by the reading you are all completing. Remember we do not need you to print anything for our activities and to complete as many as you can. We would also love to hear about any extra projects you have been completing.
Scholastic Reading and TT Rockstars
We have assigned a new book for you to read this week linked to one of our Science topics this year (Electricity). Once you have completed the book, there is a quiz for you to complete. Scholastic Reading Handout for Parents
Congratulations to Year 5 who won the TT Rockstars battle last week. For TT Rockstars this week, we are battling Year 3. We would love as many of you as possible to log on and play so that we beat Year 3!
Maths Activity Ideas
We hope you have been enjoying the activities so far. We have 5 more for you to try again this week.
Task 1: Complete a shape hunt in your house. Make a list of any 2D and 3D shapes that you find. Make sure you also write down what the object was (e.g. tin of beans = cylinder). We found this picture in one of our houses containing many different shapes. You could add these shapes to your lists.
Task 2: Create your own shape artwork like the picture above. Try to include as many shapes as you can. You could complete on a piece of paper or try to use your computer and make a picture using Paint. Ask someone in your house if they can spot all of the shapes you have included in your artwork.
Task 3: Make something for teaching younger children about shapes (including their names and their properties). Be imaginative with how you present your work. It could be a poster, information booklet, picture book or even a song. You must make it clear what is special about each shape. Try to include the following shapes:
circle triangle trapezium kite rectangle rhombus paralleogram
pentagon hexagon heptagon octagon nonagon decagon
Task 4: See if you can calculate the perimeter of your bedroom. Ask a grown up or older sibling if there is a tape measure you could use to measure the length and width of your room. If you do not have a tape measure, you could measure your room in footsteps. You must carefully put one foot in front of the other and count how many it takes for the perimeter of your bedroom. You could compare the perimeter of your bedroom to other rooms in the house. Which room has the largest perimeter? Which room has the smallest perimeter?
Task 5: Look at the temperatures in the weather forecast for Northampton for this week. For each day, calculate the difference between the temperatures shown. Which day has the largest temperature difference? Which day will be the coldest? Which day will be the warmest? See if you can find the weather forecast for another country and compare the temperatures to the ones predicted for Northampton.
English Activity Ideas
We have some more activities for you to try linked to our book for this term. If you have not had the chance to read it yet, try to log on to your Scholastic account this week. Scholastic Reading Handout for Parents
Task 1: Draw a picture of the village in spring. Label the picture with words and phrases from the extract above. You could write your own setting description for the village in spring by extending the first paragraph shown in the extract above. You could use this video to help you.
Task 2: Read through the extract and make a list of the prepositions you find. If you would like to, you could read the book again (or another of your favourite books) and make a list of all the prepositions you find. You could create a tally chart to see which preposition appears the most in the book.
Task 3: Continue this extract imagining what it looks like in the Giant’s garden. His garden is stuck in winter. Think about how it would be different in the season of winter. What would the temperature be? Would there be birds? Would there be leaves on the trees? Remember you can continue reading in the book to help you writing your paragraph.
Task 4: Write a poem linked to one of the four seasons. You could write about the season or think about one part of it (e.g. the weather). Challenge yourself to write your poem in the shape of something from the season like the ones in the pictures below.
Task 5: Create your own version of The Secret Giant but write it as a script for a performance. We suggest that you choose your favourite part of the book to focus on. If you would like to challenge yourself, imagine a film director has asked you to create a script for the whole book to be used as a new movie.
Topic Activity Ideas
This week we would like you to think about our rainforest topic from earlier this year. We would love you to be creative with this topic and research something you have always wanted to find more about. You could research your favourite rainforest animals, different plants from the rainforest or even make a list of names and locations of rainforests around the world. We would love you to spend time creating a project based around the area of the rainforest that interests you the most. Try to include a picture of the different layers of the rainforest. If your project were about a plant or an animal, in which layer would you find them?
