Good morning Beeches, Oaks and Elms
We hope you are all well and managing to stay warm in this very cold, extreme weather!
We know you will be bored and missing life in year Five and Six sooooo much – fear no more as we’ve set you some tasks to do.
Read or watch the news (you could access newsround). Make notes.
Your task is then to produce a newspaper report about the weather we are experiencing. You might like to interview someone at home and use inverted commas (speech marks) to include their views.
You will be attaching this into your literacy book once we return to school, so remember to think about your presentation. You can either present this handwritten or word processed – the choice is yours! Why not check the PowerPoint attached it’s about journalistic writing, just in case you can’t remember the features you need to include.
You’ll like this…in preparation for objectives we will cover in the future, we would like you to:
• Calculate the area AND perimeter of your yard/garden/pathway/drive etc. Think how you can calculate this, you might like to use metres, hand spans, foot spans, length of spade etc – the decision is yours; remember to include the units!
• We are sure you have had plenty of fun playing in the snow. We would like you to use this experience to write 5 word problems related to time and snow. An example could be…
I start playing in the snow at 10:05am, I return to the house for lunch at 12:30pm and stay indoors for 30 minutes. After lunch I go back outside and play for a further 3 hours. How long do I spend in the snow?
Keep a food diary of everything you eat today try to categorise the food into different food groups e.g.
Food Food Group
Brown bread Carbohydrate
Salad Fruit and vegetable.
We look forward to catching up with you all when school re-opens.
Take care, stay safe and warm
Mrs Hocking, Mrs Wong and Mr Hawdon
