Tuesday 28th April – Maths – Negative Numbers

Sorry for the lack of video yesterday everybody! Here is a lovely bit of maths for you to make up for it. As I explain in the video, I would like you to have a go at subtracting large numbers from smaller numbers, putting your knowledge of negative numbers to the test. I would really recommend using a number line to begin with to help with if you have any doubts about negative numbers. Another challenge that I would like you to have a go with, is writing word problems for some of the calculations that you find in the video. If you want to have a go at the Year 6 task here and find the mean of each of our attempts, then feel free! Enjoy 🙂

Thursday 23rd April – Maths Negative Numbers & Exercise Challenge

Click here for some Negative Numbers reasoning questions. There are plenty of graph based questions, so your graph reading skills will be tested too – remember to go along the corridor and up the stairs… Along the x axis and up the y axis… In that order!

Penny & I have a request below:

I rambled on a bit in this video, so here is a little recap…

  • Create a 30 minute workout
  • Let me know how long to do each exercise for
  • Let me know how long I am allowed to rest between exercises
  • Calculate how many calories each exercise burns using this website
  • Calculate how many calories the workout will burn overall
  • And I forgot to mention… Use this website to suggest a healthy meal that will help me re-fuel after my workout… I would like to eat roughly the same amount of calories as my workout burns!
  • And finally, don’t forget, you ned to be able to do the workout too, so don’t tell me to do a million press-ups if you haven’t done a million press-ups first!

Can’t wait to see what you come up with – you can send me the workout plan in whatever format you like! 

Wednesday 22nd April – Writing

Bit of a self-indulgent writing challenge here, but we should address the elephant in the room / on my head! 

Monday 20th April – New Spelling Words

Wednesday 15th April – Rollercoasters!

Do you know all of the forces that are acting upon a rollercoaster? I wonder if you can find out, and even describe how all of these forces effect the rollercoaster.

Thursday 9th April – Maths – Fractions challenge

Add up each three darts, then find 1/4, 1/8 and 6/10 of the total! Good luck!

 Tuesday 7th April – Maths – Adding Fractions

This video is all about adding fractions, however I have included questions about adding and subtracting fractions – the children will hopefully remember that the principles are exactly the same… But if they don’t you can always remind them 🙂 As always, any questions or examples of work are welcome on Class Dojo or my email. 

Addition questions

Fraction subtraction easier

Fraction subtraction more difficult – for some of these questions the children might have to convert mixed numbers into improper fractions in order to complete the calculation.

Reasoning questions for addition and subtraction of fractions. These get quite tricky and require the use of a few skills that we have looked at so far. 

Monday 6th April – English – Improving sentences

Don’t forget, you can send me updates on Class Dojo, or via email. I would love to hear about what you are getting up to, both academically and otherwise!

Monday 30th March – Spellings – Silent letters within words. Mental Maths. Expanded Noun Phrases. 

Thanks for the shout out Guy!

Time to describe the character in your story! I would like you to have a go at using expanded noun phrases to describe this character. Remember, a expanded noun phrase is only part of the sentence, not the whole thing. It gives additional information about the noun you are describing. Also remember, that an expanded noun phrases do no include verbs! See if you can spot my deliberate mistake towards the end of the video. 

More mental arithmetic for you here as Mr. Kelly & Mr. Johnson return to the oche to battle it out once more. Keep adding up their scores and tell us who wins! 

For an additional challenge, keep taking away their scores from 500 and see who gets closer to zero. Good luck!

Saturday 28th March – Ancient Egypt Mummification Challenge

Afternoon everybody, bit of weekend fun for you here – a year or two ago we were visited by an Ancient Egyptian Embalmer. He was due to come in this year too, but social distancing says otherwise, so here is a snippet of what he did! You can learn more about the mummification process by watching this Horrible Histories video. You can also read up on it here. Once you have watched the videos and read up on embalming, why not have a go at creating your own mummification video and sending it in! If you don’t fancy embalming someone today, you could always have a go at embalming an orange (if you have all of the ingredients!)

Mr. Kelly’s Skill School

The challenge has been set by the Kelly family. Have a go at these skills and show us how you do!

Darts Report

Thanks Isaac for not only keeping track of our scores, but also compiling a fantastic newspaper report on our darts match – I have to say, I’m massively disappointed in the final scores! Click here for Isaac’s fantastic report.

Friday 27th March Writing Prompt, Multiplication & Division

Good morning all! I’m looking forward to hearing about the creative ways you describe what you can see out of your window! Remember to try and start some sentences with an adjective to describe something in the sentence, e.g. “Broken, the fence had a hole at the bottom that was begging to be crawled through” Don’t forget the comma after your adjective! 

For maths, we are cracking on with the key skills. Have a go at the following multiplication and division questions, and the attached reasoning problems too.

Click here to find multiplication and division arithmetic questions. They get more difficult as they go on. 

Here are the reasoning questions. 

We are going to move on to fractions next week, so practise your times tables – we all know how important they are to fractions work! And don’t forget, wash your hands 🙂

Thursday 26th March – Mental Maths & a clue about tomorrow!

As well as the fantastic written maths calculations that I am sure you have all been doing (huuuuge round of applause for Rose S whose amazing work I have seen), it’s important that you keep your mental maths game strong. With that in mind, have a go at the challenge in this video. If you want an extra tough challenge, take each of mine and Mr. Kelly’s scores away from 500 (then the next score away from whatever the answer to that is) and see who ends up closer to zero!

Penny has had some ideas for tomorrow…

Tuesday 24th March – Maths & Writing

It is important that we have a purpose for writing, and right now we are living in historical times, so what better type of writing than a diary. One day, 100 years from now, a historian could be reading your diary learning about what life was like for the children who had to learn form home in the Spring of 2020! 

It’s really important that we don’t lose the key skills whilst not at school. With that in mind, I’ve uploaded an addition & subtraction video and some resources below. It’s mostly arithmetic, however there is some reasoning below too.

ENGLISH: This morning, we are writing letters, postcards and cards to elderly people, in residential home, who are in isolation and with restricted visitation from family members.

ART: We are making Mothers’ Day cards today! Be as creative as you want. Let those important people in your lives know how much you care! There are loads of ideas on Pinterest!

Wednesday 18th March

We will be looking at adding and subtracting fractions with the same and different denominators. To add and subtract fractions with different denominators it is important that the children understand how to find a common denominator.

Wed 18 Mar MATHS adding subtracting fractions y5 (1)

In addition to fractions, if you want a tricky challenge, you can try our Long Multiplication Challenge!

Good luck, and don’t forget those zeros!!

Today in English, we looked at the different features of information texts – we used this example text:

Wed 18th March ENGLISH Example Text can you find all the features?

In the second part of our lesson, we looked at writing interesting introductions which would encourage our readers to read on. After analysing them, we then drafted our own. Here are the example introductions we looked at: Wed 18th March ENGLISH Example Introductions

Tuesday 17th March

We have been looking at fractions so far this week, specifically multiplying fractions. The children will need to multiply the numerator (top number of the fraction) by the multiplier to create a top heavy fraction, and then see how many times the denominator (bottom number of the fraction) can go into the new numerator (numerator divided by denominator) to create a mixed number.

Today, in English, we used our prior knowledge and the fact files to collect interesting facts about: pharaohs, pyramids, The Nile and Tutankhamun. Using the activity sheet, we made notes about the four topics from Ancient Egypt ready for writing our own non-chronological reports.
