Monday 1st June

Good morning everybody!

We hope you had a good ‘half-term’, as strange as it might have felt! This week we thought we would focus on and celebrate our own families and friends, and also, find out about lots of different families around the world!

 

We hope you have a great week and enjoy learning about and celebrating the vast and fantastic diversity we have in our wonderful world. Everyone is different – let’s celebrate how great that is!

 

When you have completed any of your work, please email it to us. Email it to your class teacher still. Here are our email addresses below:

 

Mr Bashford: woodpeckers@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

Mr Young: kingfishers@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

 

Enjoy!

From Mr Bashford and Mr Young 😊

 

English:

Today we are going to be looking at family trees. These are going to be completely different for everybody, so you can do yours however you like! Be creative!

Look at the word document below showing lots of different types of families. None of our families are the same, and that is great! Wouldn’t it be a boring world if we were all identical?

We are going to focus on celebrating our families today. On a big piece of paper, or in your book, you can create your own family tree. You can do this however you like: draw pictures of the people, write their names, stick-figures, a big colourful tree, etc. (See the picture below as a great example – you can then add their details around them!)

Write their names, and then something about them (as detailed as you like).

 

E.g.

Grandma

83 years old

Loves eating toffees

Very good at crosswords

Maths:

In maths over the next few weeks, you will be consolidating your understanding of number operations using written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You will be practising arithmetic questions. If you find any difficult have a look at the video clips at the bottom of the page to help you.

Complete the arithmetic challenges below.

You may want to start with the mild challenge or if you are feeling confident go straight on to the arithmetic challenges. 

 
Now use your arithmetic skills to try these mastery challenges:

In the top corner of your propeller board, you will have a space to write your number.

 

Range 10-20: 18

Range 30-60: 39

Range 350-450: 412

Range 30-99: 74

 

Don't forget to keep practising your times tables on TTRS!

Topic:

Families around the world! Have a look at the powerpoint below. This afternoon, you are going to read and summarise the information about families from different countries. There are 14 different countries we are going to look at. It shouldn’t take you long to do brief notes for each one (like below) but if you find it too difficult, then just do less of them.

 

Here is an example of what you need to do for each one:

 

United Kingdom:

Who: parents and siblings – visit other family

Home: flat or house

Dinner: cook a meal from supermarket. Or a takeaway/restaurant

 

France

Greenland

Brazil

Australia

Japan

China

Syria

Kenya

Sri Lanka

Nepal

Ghana

Afghanistan

Mexico

Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record. You can now also go on: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html to do your online reading and quizzes too! We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So go on, let’s get reading!

 

Spellings:

Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell all of the Year 2, then do the Year 3/4, if you can already spell all of those, then do the Year 5/6. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
