Swallow Class - Tuesday 7th July
Good morning Swallow Class.
I hope you are all well and had a good weekend. It has been a busy day in the hut today. Year 6 have been showing me some of their origami skills. I wonder how many of you can make things using origami? We have nearly finished the second book in the Fudge series – Superfudge. Here is today’s learning.
If you have been completing the MyMaths tasks each day you need to continue with the activities on place value. Work through the lessons before you begin the homework activity. If you find the task tricky, go back and have another go to see if you can improve your mark.
If you have been completing the daily maths challenges, please carry on with the maths problem cards from yesterday. I would suggest working on questions 10-20 today.
I have attached an activity for you to complete called ‘creating mnemonics.’ Remember to keep up with a little bit of spelling practice each day.
A few weeks ago, you were asked to make a timeline to show when you reached your baby milestones. In school, we have been using this information to investigate the following question:
“Babies who sleep through the night from 6 months (or earlier) will reach their baby milestones before babies who take longer to sleep through the night.”
It will be hard for you to investigate this, but you could think about how to answer the question.
What information would you need?
How could you investigate whether the statement is true or false?
Can you make a prediction? Why do you think this?
How would you make the investigation fair?
How would you collect your results?
Optional Additional Activities
National Macaroni Day
Did you know that today is National Macaroni Day? What better way to celebrate this day than make your family macaroni cheese for dinner! Below is a link with different recipes you can follow, or you may like to make up your own recipe to celebrate macaroni cheese.
Oh I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside…
How many of you have enjoyed a trip to the seaside recently? Attached are some seaside themed colour-by-numbers sheets. The twist is the colours are written in Spanish! How many Spanish colours can you remember from a few weeks ago? If you have forgotten, you can use the PowerPoint to help you.
On my daily walks I have seen lots of birds nesting in trees. Have you ever done a bird count in your local area to see how many different birds live there? The following website might help you identify any unfamiliar birds to you.
