Friday 3rd April

It is the last day of term everyone! Thank you for cheering me up and sending me your fabulous work.

Today it is English, P.E, Maths and Art.

English

It is Friday so it is spelling test day! Please test yourself on the spellings you have been learning this week. Then, if you haven’t already done so, please try and complete your letter to me about whether gangs should be allowed to form in our school. They have been a delight to read! Also, complete your Mondrian research. We will be using the information to write a biography next term, so please keep your information in a safe place.

If you have finished all the English tasks, you might want to make a book mark or book cover.

P.E.

Try the P.E. session with Joe Wicks.

Maths

First, make a poster about the number 63. After that, say your square numbers and then your 7 X table – but maybe a little louder than yesterday as I didn’t hear many of you! Then try lesson five on the white rose maths/ home learning website.

Art

  • Please finish your Mondrian inspired artwork.
  • Try Mrs Andrew’s Elmer the elephant challenge and then perhaps draw a cartoon sketch about an adventure Elmer goes on.

I hope you all have a fantastic Easter holiday!

Wednesday 1st April

Today we have English, P.E, Maths and Art.

English

Please continue to follow the plan you did on Monday. I am really looking forward to reading your letters to see whether you think gangs should be allowed in our school.

Remember the following points:

  • The point of view is clearly stated in the first sentence.
  • The strongest argument is introduced first.
  • Questions to provoke a reaction.
  • Statistics to reinforce the argument.
  • Use furthermore and in addition to link your ideas.
  • Use indeed and besides this to emphasise a point.
  • In conclusion used to sum up the argument

If you have completed your letter, and checked it through carefully, you might want to continue to research the artist Mondrian, ready to write his biography.

P.E.

Try the P.E. session with Joe Wicks.

Mathematics

First of all make a poster about what you know about the number 56. After that, say your square numbers and then your 8 times table. Then try lesson three on the white rose maths/ home learning website.

Art

Please continue to look at the artwork by Mondrian. You might want to look at one of his first paintings and try one yourself!

Also, I thought some of you might like to try Mrs Andrew’s Elmer the elephant challenge. Have a look at the school news page to find out more.

 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday 31st March

Thank you for the lovely pictures of the Anglo-Saxon shields that many of you have sent me. Please keep them safe so we can make a display of them when we get back.

Today we have English, P.E, Maths and D.T.

English

Please follow the plans you did yesterday and write a letter to me, stating your point of view, about whether you think gangs should be allowed in our school. Remember to state your point of view in the first paragraph. Then use firstly to introduce your strongest argument. In addition and furthermore can be used to introduce your other paragraphs. Please put lots of evidence to support your opinion. Use statistics to reinforce and questions to provoke a reaction. If you can, use indeed and besides this to emphasise the point you are making.

P.E.

Take part in the P.E session with Joe Wicks.

Mathematics

First of all, make a poster about all you know about the number 31. Next, stand up and say your square numbers and perhaps your 7 times table!

After that, try lesson two on the white rose maths/ home learning website.

D.T.

If you haven’t already done so, design and make an Anglo-Saxon shield. If you have completed this, have a go at designing an Anglo-Saxon brooch. The Anglo-Saxons were well known for their jewellery, especially their beautiful brooches. The brooches came in many different designs and shapes- research them and then have a go at designing one.

 

 

 

 

 

Printing from White Rose Home Learning Links

Hi folks,

Some people have had trouble printing from the White Rose home learning activities.
White Rose

If you are having trouble with the print layout you might be able find a printer option which says something like ‘fit to printable area’. (I have tried to show what this option might look like in the image below. This should then reduce the size of the image sufficiently to print out. Alternatively, your child could work from the screen and record their answers on paper.

Monday 30th March

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Today we have English, P.E, Maths and D.T.

English

This week we will be looking at persuasive writing and I would like you to write a letter to me stating your point of view. From what George went through in the Balaclava Story, do you think gangs should be allowed at Pontesbury C.E. Primary School? Please plan out your letter today. Remember you need at least three reasons to support your point of view. Think about statistics to reinforce your argument and questions to provoke a reaction.

P.E.

Take part in the Joe Wicks P.E. session.

Mathematics.

As some of you know already, Mrs Rowe, found an excellent site to help with our maths: White Rose Maths. This provides five daily lessons for each year group. Each day starts with a video explaining things, followed by an activity. It even has the answer sheets! Try one lesson today-after you have recorded all that you know about the number 30!

D.T

It is D.T week, so I thought some of you might like to make an Anglo-Saxon shield!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Room 6’s Golden Achiever

The Golden Achiever for Room 6 this week is Isabel. Isabel has produced some truly fantastic Mondrian artwork. I think they need to be framed and put in an art gallery!  She has also responded to any comments that I have made about the work she has sent me and acted upon them immediately. Isabel has also pushed herself to improve her knowledge of the place value of decimal numbers. Thank you, Isabel! Keep up the good work!

Friday 27th March

Thank you for sharing your Mondrian pictures. They were amazing!

Today we have English, P.E, Maths and History.

English

It is Friday so it is spelling test day! Please test yourself on the spellings you have been learning this week and then choose some for next week. Remember I put the Year 3/4 spelling list on our news page last week.

P.E.

Try to do some exercise- take part in the Joe Wicks P.E. session.

Maths

Complete the problem solving sheets that I put on last week.

If you have chance, carry on making your times table game. If you have finished making it, then play your game with a family member. Show them how good you are with your times tables!

History

Try to do one lesson from the Anglo-Saxon booklet. If you like, you could make a PowerPoint of the information that is provided within the lesson. Also, while you are working on the Anglo-Saxons, you could be singing! Go to BBC website and sing along!
