Our next Maths topic is time, so why not get a head start and have a go at the activities in the booklet.
Mathletics & TTRS
As always, there are also a range of activities for you to be completing on Mathletics or you can always challenge me on TTRS and see if you can beat my score!
White Rose Maths
On the White Rose Maths website, there are daily lessons which start with a video, which includes a starter activity, then the focus of the session is explained thoroughly using lots of visual examples. There is then a PDF to download with questions and answers relating to the session focus.
60 Second Reads
There are some 60 Second Read stories and questions for you to have a go at, all linked to next terms topic, the Ancient Greeks.
You can also access a range of reading resources on the Oxford Owls website using the username Gunter Year 5 and the password is space.
There is a reading comprehension activity for you to have a go at about the myth of Icarus learning to fly.
There is also a creative writing activity for you to have a go at. Read the myth of Perseus and his quest to kill the Medusa and then use the planning sheet to write your own newspaper report retelling the events of the story.
Life Cycles Game
Our next Science topic is Living Things and their Habitats, so why not have a go at the game and see if you can match the living things to their life cycles.
With our next topic being all about the Ancient Greeks, you can do some research of your own at home to get a head start.
Using online research or books, try making a PowerPoint presentation all about Greece. See what you can find out about the country and tell me all about it. Some ideas for what you could write about include; what is life like in Greece, what is their climate, what attractions can you see there and what are they most famous for.
One of the most interesting things about the Ancient Greeks is their belief in a whole host of different Gods, some of whom we have already met in our class reader book Who Let the Gods Out. Using the Gods Fact File worksheet, see if you can find out some more information about some of the Greek gods and choose your favourite to write about in more detail.
Designing a Greek Vase
One of the activities that we will be doing when we are back in school is to make our very own Ancient Greek style vases out of clay. Using the Design a Greek Vase worksheet, you can try designing your own vase ready to be made when we’re back. Try researching Ancient Greek vases first to see how they looked and get some design ideas.
Using the BGfL 365 website, you can use the coding tools that we tried before and see if you can create your own animation. It could be about anything, from the Ancient Greeks to what you’ve been getting up to in your time at home.
