Good morning everyone. We really enjoyed seeing all your Design Technology work yesterday. We can’t wait to see what vehicles you design and make when we return to school.

English

Yesterday you looked at part of Amy’s journey and recorded important flight details for some of the places she flew over or landed in. As well as making a flight log, Amy would have wanted to let her family know that she was ok. How could she have done that? There were no mobile phones or computers in the 1930’s so she couldn’t send texts or emails. There weren’t even any landline phones available in the places she landed that would allow her to ring up her family and friends back in England. The only way she could communicate was to write a letter. Perhaps she wrote a letter like this one.

Sometimes when people visited a place they sent a postcard instead of a letter. Postcards are still sent today, usually when people go away on holiday as the front of the postcard will have photographs on of the place they are visiting/ Have you ever sent or received a postcard? Postcards don’t contain as much detail as a letter as there is not as much space for writing as the address has to be written on the postcard too. Your task today is to design a postcard that Amy might have sent when she was in Rangoon. Use the information in the letter to help you. You can design a picture to go on the front of the postcard too. There are templates for you to use or you can just draw two rectangles onto paper. You might want to do a little more research on some of the places in Amy’s letter using the internet (always check with an adult before using the internet and never give any personal information away). I have also added a little video clip below to help you think about Rangoon was like in the 1930’s. The film is in black and white as there was no colour film back then!

Mathematics

Today we are going to be looking at measuring length with a ruler. This can be tricky as not all rulers look the same. Before you start the video have a look at the ruler that was sent home in your Maths pack. When you measure with this ruler you need to measure right from the end, but for other rulers you will need to measure from 0. Both rulers measure in centimetres (cm).

Watch the video then complete the worksheet.

Practise measuring objects around your house using your ruler. Don’t forget to give your answer in centimetres (cm).

Physical Education

As we have been looking at air travel I thought it would be fun to do a PE session to do with air. Join Andy from CBeebies as he meets creatures that spend most of their lives up in the air.

Computing

We would like you to go on Purple Mash and have a go at the 2DOs set.

Your first 2Do is to create an animation using 2 create a story. Use the instructions below to help you out. You could draw an aeroplane and see if you can get it to fly.

Your next 2DO is to design your own vehicle. Think about the shape, different parts and the colours you will use.
