It seems like you have done so much work already this week. We love looking at everything you send in, however we can’t wait until you are all back in school. Not long now!!

We thought we would share some of your amazing Science investigating from yesterday. Thank you for the videos. There were some super explanations of what you found out.

Today’s Tasks

  • Phonics
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Design Technology
  • Well-being Wednesday
  • End of day story

Phonics

Have a go at this activity to practice your u sounds!

Don’t worry if you can’t print just write the words down in your books or on some paper.

English

Look at Amy’s flight map, and copy of her flight log.

Choose one of the countries she stopped in along the way.

You might want to do some research about that country.

I want you to complete a detailed flight log for one of the destinations on Amy’s journey.

Record what you find in a table like this…

Mathematics

Well done yesterday. We enjoyed looking at the ways you chose to make yourself taller.

Today we are going to look at measuring using non-standard units such as cubes, paper clips, hands etc.

Please watch the video below then have a go at the worksheet.

It is really important that children learn to measure by lining up the object with the start of the measuring device, so please spend lots of time practically reinforcing this skill. It will really help when they start to measure lengths with a ruler.

Challenge

Make your own measuring device and then get measuring. Can you find objects of a certain length? Can you find an object smaller/bigger than a certain length? Below is an idea to get you started.

Design Technology

As part of our theme work last term we looked at the history of flight. During this work you had the opportunity to make lots of different types of air travel. For our Technology this term, we will investigate a variety of different vehicles before designing, making and evaluating our own vehicles.

Today we are going to investigate a variety of vehicles and look at what they are used for and what features they have. But first I would like you to think about …

A vehicle is something with wheels that transports people or objects, such as a car, truck or cart. How many different types of vehicles can you think of? Write them down and see how many you can get!

Next have a look at the images below. What do you think these vehicles are used for? What can you see on the vehicles? Do they have any things that are the same?

Task – Chose one of your favourite vehicles. Can you label it to show the different parts? You can use a photograph, picture or draw your own. Here is one to help with ideas.

Matching Game – Can you match the vehicle pictures to the descriptions?

Well being Wednesday

This is the Amy Johnson Cup for Courage.

What do you think the word ‘courage’ means?

Courage involves making good choices in the face of fear or obstacles. It’s another term for bravery. Remember: Bravery doesn’t mean fearlessness. It means we do not let fear hold us back from exploring new opportunities, developing our skills, and doing what is right.


The 2013 winner of the cup was an 11 year old girl who saved her grandmother from a fire.

Why was that a brave thing to do?


Do you think Amy was courageous too?

What is the most courageous or brave thing you have done?

Watch this video and it might help give you some ideas!
