Tuesday 7th July

Good morning everyone!

 

We hope you enjoyed learning about where food comes from yesterday. Today you are going to consider what it is like for children who are hungry. We would like to see how you are getting on, so remember you can send us your work on our class 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:

 

Should we take any responsibility for world hunger?

 

Today you are going to write a letter to our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and convince him why we should help people who do not have enough to eat. Think of any reasons that you can… human rights, kindness, morals, religion and beliefs, equality, etc. Split them into paragraphs and explain each point.

There are plenty of facts and statistics on the websites below to help you:

Maths

Today you will be practising more 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: 45

Range 350-450: 391

Range 30-99: 85

 

Don’t forget to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.

Topic:

 

Look at packaging and food adverts. How do these companies draw us in and make us want to buy their food? Look at the pictures below of sweets, pizza and Dairylea lunch snacks. Colourful, simple, classy, funny, elegant, quirky… so many different ways! Look through your cupboards at home and see what it looks like. Which is the best design?

 

You are going to choose an item of food and design the packaging for it.

Think about font, colour, images, catchphrases, comparisons, fun, design, layout…etc.

What would make it catch your eye if you saw it on the supermarket shelf? I can’t wait to see these – if you can make Brussel sprouts ‘fun’, then I think Tescos might give you a job!

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 words then do the Year 3/4 words and if you can do 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!
