Today you are going to start the final part of your landscape work. This a project in the form of a PowerPoint, which contains lots of mini tasks, building up to a final piece of artwork at the end. You should carefully read each part of the PowerPoint uploaded below and begin completing the mini tasks.

I would love to see your mini tasks as you complete them so please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Y5 – Maths 3D shape project. For the next three days, for maths, you are going to be researching and creating your own way of presenting information about the properties of 3D shapes, just like you did with 2D shapes last term. You should use the 3D shape vocabulary explained below to help you describe as many 3D shape properties as you can:
Your challenge is to research the properties of different 3D shapes, including cube, cuboid, sphere, cone, triangular prism, cylinder, square-based pyramid, triangular prism, pentagonal pyramid, hexagonal prism, pentagonal prism, triangle-based pyramid etc.
Make sure you use the vocabulary explained above. You should make notes in your maths book. Remember to include the short date and the title: Properties of 3D shapes. Once you have carried out your research, you will then need to find an interesting/creative way of presenting your information. You could create an information text, make the shapes and find a way of showing their properties, create a PowerPoint, create a video of you presenting about the properties of 3D shapes, make a properties of shapes spinner etc. The choice is yours, but the more inventive the better. At the end of the week, when you have finished them, I would love to see and display your creations so please send them to email@example.com

The rest of the mat is your topic work for today.
Y5 – We are going to move on to look at 3D shapes. Today we are going to be looking at nets of 3D shapes. The net of a 3D shape is what it looks like if it is opened out flat and it can be folded up to make a 3D shape. There may be several possible nets for one 3D shape. You can draw a net on paper, then fold it into the shape.
Use the 'Y5 Lesson Presentation Understanding Nets' PowerPoint uploaded below to explore 3D shapes and their nets, completing the activities as you go along. There is also two 3D nets documents uploaded below for you to complete. Remember the short date and the title: Nets of 3D shapes.
If you finish these and would like to explore nets further, why not see how many different nets you can create for different 3D shapes?
Y6 – Throughout the rest of this week, for maths, you are going to be revising negative numbers and word problems. I have uploaded two documents below containing a range of SATs style questions. I have uploaded two this week, as there are less questions in each document, so you will only be completing at much as you have been doing in previous weeks. These documents are for you to work through throughout this week, so choose how many you would like to do each day, aiming to complete the booklets by the end of the week. Answer the questions in your maths book. Remember to include the short date and the title: Negative Numbers for the first booklet and Word Problems for the second booklet. Once you have completed them, please mark and correct your answers using the corresponding answer booklets, also uploaded below.
If you finish these, I have also uploaded some new quizzes online for you to do focusing on negative numbers and some more mixed quizzes. Follow this link to log in: https://app.eedi.com/login
