Welcome to the week two of home learning!

We hope you enjoyed last week and tried a selection of the different activities. This week will be similar to last week with a few added challenges to help keep you busy (details of which you can find below). Remember there are extra ideas of things to do inside the front cover of your yellow home learning book. 

 

Maths

There is a daily maths lesson to complete. Watch the video first (by using the link below and finding the correct video), after this complete the worksheet in your yellow home learning book. Once you have finished you should check your answers. Extra maths activities to complete include: the White Rose Problem of the Day; fluent in five arithmetic questions and some ‘creative challenges’ word problems which will be updated regularly through the week.

 

Remember you can also log into TT Rockstars to practice times-tables. Perhaps challenge on of your friends to a battle!

Writing/ Geography Tasks for the week beginning 30th March

 

 

Below is a list of all the places reached through the sharing of our school rainbow last week, through the use of social media. Take a look at the list and consider the following:

 

Which places have you heard of already?

Which is the furthest place from here?

Do you know anyone who lives in these places?

 

Undertake some general research on the location of these places and then choose one of the following tasks:

 

  • Write a report about one place including details of its human (people/ towns/ villages) and physical (mountains/ rivers/ lakes etc).
  • Write a travel diary as you had visited this place.
  • Put together a travel brochure including useful information/ pictures etc
  • Write a letter to someone who lives in this country telling them about you and the place where you live- how is it different/ the same?

 

Here's the list of places:

 

Togo, Africa

Brooklyn, New York

Christchurch, New Zealand

Nakhon Sawan (not sure where this is!)

Marsh Harbour, the Bahamas

Korat, Thailand

Alameda County, USA

Polk County, USA

Denmark

Hong Kong

Australia

Japan

Switzerland

Creative Maths 

Monday

Roll a dice to create a 3 digit number and a 2 digit number. Multiply the numbers together. Repeat 6 times.

Next, can you use the digits 1-9 to create a 3 digit multiplied by a 2 digit question that will give you an answer nearest to 10 000? You can use the digits more than once. How close can you get if you can only use each digit once?

 

Tuesday

Roll a dice to create a 5-digit add a 5- digit addition question. Work out the calculation. Repeat 6 times. Can you use the digits 1-9 to create a 5- digit add a 5-digit addition question that will give you an answer nearest to 10000? You can use the digits more than once. How close can you get if you can only use each digit once?

 

Wednesday

Roll a dice to create a 5-digit subtract a 5-digit addition question. Workout the calculation. Repeat 6 times. Can you use the digits 1-9 to create a 5- digit subtract a 5-digit addition question that will give you an answer nearest to 10 000? You can use the digits more than once. How close can you get if you can only use each digit once?

 

Thursday

Select a recipe for 4 people. Change the recipe to make enough for 24 people. Use the internet to find out the price per ingredient. How much will you need? Do you need more than one packet? What will be the price per head? What percentage of the whole recipe is each ingredient? Choose a recipe using imperial measures. Can you convert them to metric? Can you scale up the recipe for 20 people?

 

Friday

Plan a trip to a city in the UK from your home. Is there more than one option to get there? Are you going to get the train or drive? How much will it cost to get there? How much petrol will you use? Which takes the least amount of time? What will be your accommodation costs? How much will you budget for meals? What will be the price per head be if 4 people came with you?

 

*Please note that Wednesday's maths lesson requires use of a protractor for question 3. If you don't have a protractor at home then rather than measuring, estimate the size of the angle and label them as acute, obtuse or reflex.*

Science

These activities link to the topics of electricity, sound, forces, and changes of state and require simple equipment you may already have at home. Once you have tried the activities yourself, challenge yourself to record your findings using a scientific diagram in your yellow exercise book and to explain what you observed. We would love to see photos of the experiments in action and how you have recorded them!

 

Here is one possible activity to get you started. The rest can be downloaded below.
