Dear Dahl class,
Another week has gone by and I really miss seeing everyone in school. Please do keep in touch and email me any learning that you have completed to firstname.lastname@example.org. I promise I will reply! Last week Noah sent me a great photograph of a rainbow that he had made from tissue paper. Well done Noah! Pot of Gold! Please continue to complete the 2Dos on Purple Mash and spend some time on Times Table Rockstars or Numbots.
1. This week I would like you to write a non-fiction explanation text about something that interests you. It needs to be something that you know a lot about, for example, Lego, Minecraft, pets, sport etc. Look at the Rainbow writing unit from last week and work from p.11 to plan your writing.
2. Complete the word challenge on p14 of the Rainbow unit. How many words can you make from the word RAINBOW?
3. Read the text about Rainbows on p15-16. You can also listen to an audio version of the text. https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/why-rainbows/s-Ov4K1MVNQjn Talk about the questions on p17 and complete the vocabulary challenge with an adult p18-19.
4. Practice spelling the months of the year. Try to split the words into chunks and clap out each syllable. Use the ideas in the spelling booklet to help you practise these words.
January February March April May June July August September October
5. Write a sentence for each month of the year. For example My Dad's birthday is in February. In August it is the summer holidays.
6. Continue to read as much as you can and sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge.
1. Complete the White Rose Maths learning about Length and Mass. Also check out BBC Bitesize as there will be additional videos and resources to support this learning. See video link and worksheet links below.
2. Try to measure the height of all the people who live in your house in metres and centimetres. Can you find the difference between the shortest and tallest person?
3. Bake some cakes. Look at the measurements in grams. Which ingredient do you need the most? Use scales to measure the ingredients accurately.
4. FInd out how far away you live from school in metres or kilometres. How far is it to Corsham, Bristol or even New York?
5. Practise your calculation skills. Answer the arithmetic questions. You can write the answer in your book. Remember to draw dienes to help you. (see link below)
