Final Term Week 4
Hi Class 1,
I hope you have had a lovely weekend and are ready for another week of home learning.
Thank you to those of you who sent in work last week. I love to see what you have been up to.
Look at Arlo's amazing periscope, which he made as part of our science work last week:
...and Bryah's amazing periscope:
… and Harry's amazing periscope:
Can Charlie or Taylor convince you to go to one of these destinations, once lockdown is over?
Can you solve Taylor's crossword about Good Night Mr Tom?
Look what else our class got up to last week:
Look how well Bryah's seeds, which we planted at the beginning of lockdown are doing:
I hope you enjoy reading Maya's story as much as I did!
Will you be one of this week's 'Netherseal Stars of the Week'?
Here is your home learning for this week:
Don't forget to have a look at and try out some of the activities on my Year 6 Transition page.

In honour of National School Sport Week, Olympic Day (Tuesday 23rd) and National Cricket Week, our whole school topic for this week, is based on P.E. Below are some documents to support you with your challenge. Choose a challenge or some challenges from the 'P.E challenges' folder. Then try a cricket challenge from the 'National Cricket Challenge' folder uploaded below, where there will be a new cricket related challenge uploaded each day, along with some related activities, in honour of National Cricket Week.

There is a new theme each week and this week's theme is different forms of exercise, which ties in nicely with our whole school topic for this week.
Y5 – Following on from the work you have completed over the last few days, have a go at the online quiz which I have assigned to you, by following the link below and logging in:
I can’t wait to see how well you do!
Y6 – Continue and complete your maths work on decimals and percentages. Don’t forget there are also some related online quizzes to complete, if you have finished the uploaded questions.

Y6 – Follow the link below and complete the comprehension task in your English book. Remember the long date and the title: How to Design a Roller Coaster Text A.
Year 5/6 Writing:
Open the document below to find your challenges:
Use your English skills and your science knowledge. Can you rearrange the letters in these anagrams?
Then your challenge is: can you make an A-Z of Light using what you have learnt over the last few weeks?
Y5 – Today we are going to look at the final part of interpreting tables: interpreting timetables. You should create a number line to help you calculate the time durations. Remember, using column subtraction is not an efficient method, as time adds up to 60, not 10/100/1000 like numbers in a column do.
Read the example at the top of the 'Y5 Timetables' document uploaded below, which explains how to work out the questions. Then choose your challenge to complete: A, B or C.
A is the easiest and C is the hardest so make sure you choose which challenge is right for you.
Record your work in your maths book. Remember the short date and the title: Timetables. Make sure you create a number line to help you answer the questions and use a ruler to draw the line.
Y6 – continue with your maths work on decimals and percentages. Remember you have until tomorrow to complete it. Don’t forget there are also some related online quizzes to complete, if you finish the uploaded questions or if you prefer to do these instead.
Continue and complete your work from yesterday.
Don’t forget to send it to me!

Then, choose your challenge to complete: A, B or C.
A is the easiest and C is the hardest so make sure you choose which challenge is right for you. Try and choose a more challenging column than yesterday.

Y6 – continue with your maths work from yesterday.
Y5 – Read chapter 20 of Good Night Mr Tom. Write a paragraph summarising the chapter in your own words. Then your challenge is: can you summarise it in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 (5 words, 4 words, 3 words, 2 words and 1 word)? Record your work in your English book. Remember the long date and the title: Good Night Mr Tom – Chapter 20 Summary.
Y6 – Follow the link below and complete the comprehension task in your English book. Remember the long date and the title: The Tempest.
Y5 – Play one round of ‘Times Table Rock Stars’.
Then, today we are going to start looking at interpreting tables. Make sure you read all of the information in the table carefully and you will do a great job with this.
Look at the table on the first page carefully and then choose your challenge to complete: A, B or C. A is the easiest and C is the hardest so make sure you choose which challenge is right for you. Get interpreting, but make sure you read the information carefully! Record your answers in your maths book. Remember the short date and the title: Interpreting Tables.
Once you have finished interpreting the data, mark your answer, using the answer document, which I have also uploaded below.
Y6 – Throughout the rest of this week, for maths, you are going to be revising decimals and percentages. I have uploaded two documents below containing a range of SATs style questions, focusing on each of these areas. You should work through these documents 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: Decimals for the first booklet and Percentages for the second booklet. Once you have completed them, please mark and correct your answers using the answer booklets, also uploaded below.
If you finish these questions, I have also uploaded some new quizzes online for you to do focusing on decimals and percentages. Follow this link to log in: https://app.eedi.com/login
For the next part of our science, read the ‘Isaac Newton’s Colour Experiments Fact Sheet’ uploaded below, which follows on from the ideas we looked at yesterday. Then choose your challenge from the uploaded ‘Isaac Newton Comprehension Questions’. Remember star one is the easiest and star three is the hardest. Record your answers neatly in your topic book. Remember the long date and the title: Isaac Newton Colour Experiments Comprehension.
You will need to complete the reading task above before you can complete this writing task.
Use the 'Note Making Success Criteria' uploaded below and the Isaac Newton Colour Experiment Fact Sheet from your reading task to help you create a set of notes. You may also wish to do some further research on the computer about the topic to extend your notes further.
Once you have made your notes, practise using your notes as a prompt to tell someone else about what you have found out. The 'Sharing my Notes Success Criteria' uploaded below will remind you about what we are looking for.
When you think you are happy with your presentation of your notes, use your notes to support you in telling a family member about what you have found out and get them to assess you against the success criteria. You could even video yourself presenting them and send them to email@example.com and you could be the science expert sharing your ideas on our home learning page next week.
In your maths book, complete the arithmetic questions, for your year group, uploaded below.
Remember the short date and the title: Arithmetic.
Can you complete it in 30 minutes?
Can you beat your previous score from last week’s arithmetic test?
I have included the answers on the last page of the Year 5 arithmetic and as a separate document for Year 6, so when you have finished, make sure you mark and correct your answers.
Choose your challenge from the reading comprehension task below. Star one is the easiest and star three is the hardest. This comprehension task will help you find out about our next area of focus in science: the light spectrum. Record your answers neatly in your topic book. Remember the long date and the title: The Light Spectrum.
When you have completed this reading comprehension, create a colour wheel to try out the ideas from the reading comprehension.
You will need to complete the reading task above, including creating the colour wheel, before you can complete this writing task. In your topic book, write an explanation of what happens to the colour wheel and why you think it happens. Use the ‘Explanation Text Features Key’ to help you ensure you have included the correct features of the text type.
I would love to see you colour wheels and the explanation you create and share them on our home learning class page next week, so please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
