Monday

Good morning Willow Class!

 

I hope you and all of your families are well and that you have been enjoying the work set so far. Thank you to everyone who has been emailing me, it's been great to hear about all of the things you have been doing and discover so many hidden talents. Its also been great to speak to some of you on the phone too; for those who haven't heard yet, I will be making more calls this week to try to get through everybody. 

In the mean time, I will be staying at home as much as possible, reading as many books as I can, doing some artwork and looking forward to receiving some more fantastic work.

 

Stay safe and have a great week,

Mr Brett

Maths

 

Summer Term Week 3 (w/c 4th May)

Lesson 1 - simplify fractions

 

Let's have a fraction recap!! Remember to simplify fractions you need to find a number that goes into the top (numerator) and the bottom (denominator) number.

So... 20/45 is divisible by 5 so it also becomes 4/9

 

Or! You have an improper fraction and you need to see how many wholes (pizzas) go into it.

So... 14/6 ... how many 6s go into 14 to make whole pizzas??

2 whole pizzas ( 12) and 2 left over which becomes 2 2/6 OR 2 1/3. BOOM!

Topic:

This week we will continue our study of World War II. Try to complete all of, or as many as you can of, the following activities:

  • Read the fact sheet on the Battle of Britain and complete the quiz (ppt version or written). While you’re at it, why not challenge your family to take the quiz and see how much they know.
  • Using the Spitfire template, or a design of your own, create a paper aeroplane. Test your plane to see how far it files. Then, make small adaptations to your plane to try to increase the distance it travels. You might like to try: adding weight, changing the material of the plane, trying to make your plane more streamlined or anything else you can think of. Let us know what works best.
  • Study the PowerPoint on D-Day. Imagine you are a solider about to land on one of the beaches. Write a brief recount of your experience. This could be done as a story, letter diary or any other way you choose.
  • Read the PowerPoint on Unsung War Heroes. Who is your hero? Design a medal that you would award them and send us an explanation of why they deserve it.
  • VE Day, 75th anniversary, 8th May 2020 – Study the ppts on VE Day. Then, find a way to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Wave a union Jack flag, sing or dance, play games, bake a cake or anything else you can think of. Send us photos of how you choose to celebrate and have a fantastic bank holiday weekend! (Photographs can be sent next week if celebrations take place over the bank holiday weekend)

Something extra

 

Grab some art supplies and get outside to draw/make us something. Take a picture and send it to us so we can put it on the website.

It could be using twigs, leaves and other natural materials.

You could get out the chalks and draw on the patio, you could just draw something outside and find something inspiring within nature.
