TT Rockstars - BATTLE
Well done Year 3/4 – last time I checked, you had the highest score! Just over half the children in our class have now joined in which shows great teamwork. If you get the chance today, try to log on for a short while. Your speed and accuracy of recall is always improving. Remember, the battle ends at 3pm on Friday.
As always, don’t forget to find some time today to keep active, either indoors or outdoors. Can you think of something different to try today? You can always let us know what you have been doing via the Purple Mash blog or our class email. If you prefer, Joe Wicks’ daily live P.E. session can be accessed here:
If you can, print and complete this week’s sheets from Spelling Shed. If you are unable to print you can copy the lists and practise on paper.
Try to set aside some time for independent reading. If you are looking for something different to read, you will find a copy of the most recent edition of First News that we have under the ‘Children’ tab on our website.
If you have a Lexia or Nessy login, don't forget to keep up with your usage. Try to spread it out throughout the week in short blocks (i.e. no more than 20 mins at a time).
Please have a go at today’s maths lesson on the BBC Bitesize website using one of the links below.
Y3 = Comparing three-digit numbers https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhpq7nb
Y4 = Round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000
In the future, people will look back upon this period as a major event in our history. One way to help keep a record of this time is to create a time capsule. A time capsule is a container which includes information or historic objects that are put in there to communicate with people in the future including archaeologists, anthropologists and historians.
I would like you to begin completing the ‘Time Capsule Activity Booklet’ today as a piece of evidence that could help somebody in the future learn about what life was like at this moment in time. The activity booklet can be finished over the next couple of days and, please note, the ‘Hands and Paws’ pages are optional!
If you would like to, you could put this booklet, along with a copy of the thank you letter that you wrote yesterday and any other objects you think represent the current situation, in to a suitable container and store it somewhere safe. If you can find a strong, waterproof container (something that will not biodegrade) you could even bury it in your garden, provided you have permission of course.
Computing - Simulations
I have set a 2Do on the Purple Mash website to allow you to explore some simple simulations.
First of all, I would like you to access the ‘Locked Out’ activity by clicking on the moving keys. This simulation is about making choices and problem solving, and it has three different endings to mimic real life. Try making different choices to change the outcome. Think about ways this simulation was or wasn’t realistic, e.g. by how animated the graphics were.
You can then explore the other simulations if you wish. There are 5 in total, including ‘Locked Out’.
