Robin Class - Monday 6th June
Happy Monday morning to you all. I hope you had great weekends and achieved all that you wanted to.
There are only 2 weeks left of the summer term now but my plan for this week is to keep going as we have been since half term. We have lots of lovely maths and writing to finish. We also have the final part of our RE learning to do this term as well.
Today you will today start a brand new unit which is about mass and capacity.
Mass might be a new word to you but it means weight. Why do we say mass and not weight you might ask? Well weight actually changes depending on where you are in space and on what planet you are on but mass always stays the same. This might sound silly to you as you’ll normally be on planet Earth but this is the language I use so you may as well get used to it.
If my definition doesn’t make sense then I have found this definition online: The terms "mass" and "weight" are used interchangeably in ordinary conversation, but the two words don't mean the same thing. The difference between mass and weight is that mass is the amount of matter in a material, while weight is a measure of how the force of gravity acts upon that mass.
Almost all of the worksheet can be completed without printing it off but I will attach it for those who would like to print it off.
Today you will continue to think about coordinates and you will move on a grid. I remind you of this every day but…
As always I will attach the PDF for the lesson but you don’t need to print it off as it can all be done on a piece of paper.
English (3 Day Task)
Collect together random objects that interest and inspire you. Put these into a jar and study your jar. Think about how your series of random objects could link together to form a story. Let your imagination roam free. Using your objects as inspiration plan and write a story. Your story can be inspired by all or some of the objects. However…your story must be no longer than 500 words! So think very carefully about how you are going to create setting, plot and ending all within 500 words. Careful planning will be crucial. Bring your story jar and story with you in September. Not only will your work be added to one of the first displays of the new academic year but you might also win a prize!
Here are your spellings for this week.
Year 4 Words
Year 3 Words
Year 2 Words
I’m assuming that the other 2 months of the year will be in next week’s spellings for you all.
Months of the year are included this week as Year 2 spelling words to learn. This made me wonder just how many of my Year 3 and 4s know how to spell the months of the year off by heart. Ask an adult in your house to test you on these.
Good luck Robins.
