17th May 2020 - Term 5 Week 5


Hi Year 3 and 4!


Below are some links to activities that you can do at home during the next week - these have dates on them, but you don't need to worry about when you do them. The ones near the top are the most recent. 


We're nearly finished with Kaspar Prince of Cats - 2 chapters left. I realise I've left it at a critital moment in the story all over the weekend! I'll make sure the next chapter is up as soon as possible.


This week we are moving on from the Titanic and beginning to think about the Anglo-Saxons. This was the history work we had planned for next term, and since it looks as though you won't be coming back to school for at least the first weeks of Term 6, we thought we'd get on with the curriculum learning!


The first lesson is a VIPERS lesson and gives you the chance to read your own introduction to the Anglo-Saxons, and think a little about them. After that there will be history skills lessons this week, and I'll read one of the Beowulf stories by Michael Morpurgo. After half term we'll read Anglo Saxon Boy by Tony Bradman.


Maths this week is linked below. The answers and some discussion problems will be uploaded on Monday afternoon. 


Before we start Term 6, we're going to take down the links to the story reading below (too many links will slow the website down). So if you're listening to one of the stories, don't wait too long to watch/listen to the videos. 


Keep smiling!

Term 5 Week 5 - Year 3 Maths

This week's maths from White Rose is the fractions work already covered during the lockdown period. If you didn't do it the first time around, then do the fraction work (you'll need it for Term 6 Week 1). If you did it, and feel confident, then there is an alternative revising addition and subtraction.

Term 5 Week 5 - Year 4 Maths

This week White Rose maths looks at equivalent fractions. The first lesson in this unit was covered earlier in the lockdown period, so there is an alternative lesson if you are confident in tenths and hundredths. If not, repeat the lesson.

History - Who were the Anglo-Saxons?

Without heading off to Google to find out all about the Anglo-Saxons, see if you can use your reading skills to learn the basics. Here are some VIPERS questions about two pages of a non-fiction book introducing the Anglo-Saxons.

Term 5 Week 3 and 4 - English and History - Titanic
Picture 1
On April 10, 1912, the R.M.S. Titanic set sail on a five-day journey across the North Atlantic Ocean, from Southampton, England, to New York City, New York. The Titanic was one of the biggest and most state-of-the-art ocean liners of its day. With all of the ship's safety measures, the Titanic was thought to be unsinkable. But on April 15, the Titanic sank after colliding with an iceberg, tragically taking the lives of more than 1,500 passengers and crew.
