Welcome back! 😊 We hope you have managed to have a happy and healthy break. We are missing you all lots and are always thinking about you!
Every Monday while school is closed, we will set weekly tasks for you to complete at home. If you have any questions about the work, you can ask these on the blog using the ‘Comment’ section (don’t forget to use your initials only – you don’t need to put an email address).
Of course we want to see your wonderful work, so we have set up a new class email address that you can use to send it to us! It is: 5KT@westrise-jun.e-sussex.sch.uk
If you have any other queries, questions or concerns please ask your adult to email Mr Fairclough: firstname.lastname@example.org
This week’s tasks:
- Maths Tasks
Have a look on MyMaths for your tasks. Check out our feedback on the tasks you have completed 🙂 Don’t forget to check out some of the Games, too! This week, we would like you to have a go at playing these Fractions games:
- Fractions Golf (find it in Games / Golf)
- Fraction Pairs (find it in Games / Pairs Games)
- For an even harder challenge, try Fractions Pairs 2 (find it in Games / Pairs Games)
Comment below to let us know which game you liked best, and why!
Practical Maths activities
Here are some other Maths activities for you to try at home this week.
Activity 1: Estimating Weight
Find several different items of food. Pick them up, and estimate their weight in grams. Then, either weigh them, or look on the packaging, to see how close you were!
Hopefully, as you go on, you will get more and more accurate. For example, does an apple feel a similar weight to a bar of chocolate? Does a yoghurt feel about twice as heavy as a satsuma?
You could even draw up your findings in a table, like this:
|Item||Estimated weight (g)||Actual weight (g)|
You could even add another column and use it to convert your weights into kilograms (kg).
Have fun, and let us know using the ‘Comments’ how you have been getting on!
Activity 2: Countdown
Play your own version of Countdown using the four operations (+ – x ÷)
This video shows you how you can set this up at home:
You could play against other people you live with!
Let us know how you’ve been getting on 🙂
Here are this week’s spellings. You know lots of fun ways to practise these; rainbow writing, acrostic poems, blue for vowels, plus all the other activities we have carried out in class. On Friday, ask someone at home to test you on these by putting them into sentences (dictation), just like we do at school. Comment on this Blog post or email us to let us know how you got on.
