Kali Mera Year 5!
So today is our last day of (virtual) school for a couple of weeks. The Easter holidays begin next week and school will start again on Monday 20th April. Make sure that date is in your diaries! During Easter, I will try to post blog updates but not with any new school work. I will let you know if I see anything that looks fun/interesting as well as updating you with any news on what might happen next. I want you to keep checking the school website, twitter and blog regularly during the holidays.
If you have any pictures or videos of work you have been doing then please send them to me on the school email: email@example.com
Challenges for today
Reading: Continue accessing and reading books on Serial Mash and your home books. Try to write a book review on Purple Mash every time you finish a book. I would love to know what you have been reading and the new words you have discovered. Save words for our vocab challenge and why not post them on our blog and see if anyone knows what it means.
Literacy: Please continue and finish your highwayman/woman web pages.
Maths: Have a go at these using our CLIC strategies:
3894 ÷ 19
274 x 368
37,375,851 + 39,758,926
73,120,062 - 29,437,831
Here is today's investigation.
You will have to measure the size of the plane and distance it travels to test this theory. Will you measure your paper plane in metres? Why?
P4C: Gather your family together and explain to them how a P4C session works and why we do them. You could start the session off with a sticky question to get everyone into it and thinking deeply.
Now that you have got everyone talking, I would like you to use our current situation as a stimulus. Ask everyone how they are feeling about the Covid-19 crisis and isolation. My question for today is 'what good could come from the crisis?'. Let me know what you discuss on the P4C post on purple mash..
Ok, I will let you guys get on with your day now. I hope you have really relaxing Easter holidays. Play lots of games (not too many video games), exercise, read, watch your favourite shows, spend time with your family and chill out. Remember to check back regularly for updates. Leave messages for me on Purple Mash and I will get back to you. Finish off any of the work I have set on here and check your Purple Mash 2do list for things to do. Here is also a list of online offers that some celebrities are offering for free while schools are closed. Please share this with your parents.
Take care, be safe, wash your hands, stay indoors and good luck with all the tasks. Theo :)
