Monday 30th March

Good afternoon.

Where on earth has the nice weather gone!

 

I hope you've had a great day. I did the Joe Wicks workout again today: my neighbours must have been watching some very strange kangaroo and bear impressions! I've also updated the Reading Champions website with lots of recommended reads and I've been busy sorting some active maths lessons and 'virtual' staff training. I must say - I now feel I've been very productive. I hope you feel the same way too, keeping your mind healthy is really important.

 

Thanks to Kelsey and Michael for your photos. I'll add them to the gallery. Well done to Charlie, Sarika, Clara, Michael and Emily for getting your stories submitted in time. Fingers crossed! Also, well done to Charlie for getting Tilly involved too.

If you're working with siblings at home you might choose to do that sometimes - we do have a curriculum to follow (so don't miss Y6 learning too often) but if you miss a bit of your year group learning to work on something your brother or sister has been set that's fine. I have been looking on the other Class Pages and see that some of the teachers have fantastic ideas. 

 

Have a good evening. Speak tomorrow.

Miss Wood

 

Maths answers:

Money sense – Any answer is correct as long as you can justify your reasons.

I’d recommend the first-saver to Jenny because she cannot access the money unless she goes into the bank with her passbook. It has the best interest rate so she will be best off as long as she doesn’t spend the money.

I’d recommend the Plus-Current for Ruby as the cash card will allow her to withdraw the money for the gym and memberships.

I’d recommend the First-Saver Plus to Khalid as this has the best interest rate for his savings due to the fact he hasn’t enough money to open the First-Saver

English answers:

1)The Easter egg is a symbol of resurrection and re-birth. It also represents the empty tomb of Jesus.

2) Tsar Alexander III

3) The Pan-Russian Exhibition of 1882 from the Heritage Museum

4) It was called 'Hen'. It was a gold egg, covered in white enamel. It contained a golden yolk which held a golden hen and encased an imperial crown of gold and a ruby pendant.

 

 

 

Good morning, in English we start a week-long topic on Faberge eggs. For the first 3 days you'll complete comprehension and some fun optional writing tasks. 

At the end of the week you'll complete a piece of writing - information about what type of writing will follow on Thursday.

For maths, you have a money-sense activity today and an optional divisibilty worksheet. The tips at the top of the page are really useful and I think you'll learn some new tricks.
