Tuesday 26th January
Remember to read for at least 20 minutes at home today. Today, we would like you to try out a new reading resource that we have signed up for. Start by visiting the Oxford Owl website:
Log in to the students section using the following details:
Use the search function to find a book that looks right for you. If you want any help doing this, please contact us via the class email
When you have completed a book, see if there are any activities that can be completed that link to the text. Also, send us in details of the book you read and what you thought about it.
Instead of our usual writing activity, today we would like you to attend a live session relating the Holocaust Memorial Foundation Project. The session starts at 9:15 and the link was sent out via ParentPay last Friday. If you need the link to be resent to you, please just ask.
Please note this live session focuses on memorialising the Holocaust. So we will be watching content and discussing issues surrounding the Holocaust. If you would like to get an idea of the content of the session to check it is appropriate for your child, the session is heavily based on this BBC Assembly.
At the end of the session, your child will be invited to take part in the Foundation Stone Project. Details of how to take part are attached to this blog post.
Today we want you to build some division calculations. Here is a list of division calculations to build at home:
8 ÷ 4 =
10 ÷ 5 =
9 ÷ 3 =
12 ÷ 4 =
6 ÷ 3 =
15 ÷ 3 =
We want you to build each of these calculations to help you work out the answer. Please send us in a picture of at least 1 of the calculations you build at home so we can give you feedback and add it to the blog.
If you are looking for an extension activity, try turning one or more of these calculations into a calculation story.
e.g. I had 8 cakes. I shared them onto 4 plates. How many cakes are on each plate?
Watch Mr M’s video in which he explains how our understanding of place value can be used to help recall our 10 times tables.
Then get a partner to test you on your 10 times tables.
Time and Place-
Today, we would like you to continue your guided tour of the ‘Fire Fire’ exhibition at the Museum of London.
Today, we want you to watch from 5:36 to 9:35.
Then, we want you to complete the activity suggested by the curator of the museum:
What would you save?
Think of five things that are precious to you. Gather them in your home or draw a picture of them.
Ask the people you live with to do it too!
Once you’ve all finished gathering or drawing, take some time to explain to each other why you chose those items.
As always, please contact us directly if you need any help with any of these activities.
