I cannot believe we have got to the end of April and we haven’t been in school together! As teachers we have been spending our days planning your home learning and missing you lots. Why don’t you use our class emails to let us know what you have been up to over the last few weeks and how the home learning has gone. We would love to see any of your fabulous work and hear of the great things you have been doing so please do send it in to us!
So today is the last day of extreme earth week! Have at look below to find your home learning for today.
We know that many of you enjoy reading but by now you all would have finished your reading books. So, until we make our big announcement around reading, have a look on the website below. It will take you to a page where you can access lots of free online books. Click on your age group and it will give you a whole group of books to choose from.
Yesterday in English you wrote your own poems about weather. Today we are going to think about Tsunamis.
Watch the two videos below to show you what Tsunamis may look like. Some parts of the video are quite scientific so don’t worry if you don’t understand all of it.
Once you have watched the videos have a look at the website below. This will give you more information on Tsunamis and how they work.
Your learning challenge…
Imagine that you are a news reporter and you need to report on what happened when a Tsunami hit your town. You should speak to the Mayor of the town about what happened and what will happen next?
You have two choices of how you can present your work.
Also think about what people would have seen during a Tsunami.
2. Create a news video where you are the reporter asking questions to the Mayor. Maybe one of your family members could be the Mayor for you. You will need to give some facts on the Tsunami first, then introduce the Mayor and then ask them your questions. Can you think of some interesting questions to ask him?
Yesterday you had a break from looking at fractions and practised some other skills we have learnt this year in maths. Today we are going to go back to using our online resources to practice fractions.
Today we are looking at comparing fractions with the same denominator. Work through the lesson and watch the video carefully as this will help you to improve your understanding.
This morning in English you learnt about Tsunamis. You are going to use what you learnt alongside the videos and the website link you used in English to create a model Tsunami. You can draw a picture, create a model Tsunami, create a poster explaining them, make a Tsunami cake or even use water to create your own mini Tsunami. At the bottom of this page I have attached a slideshow of photos to give examples of the kinds of things you may want to do.
It’s the end of the week so why don’t you do something fun. Tell your family some jokes, play lots of games with other people in your house. Do a scavenger hunt when you go for a walk to see if you can find things that begin with every letter of the alphabet on your walk.
Have a great day and weekend!
