Monday 20th April
I hope you all had an amazing Easter Holiday. The weather was fantastic and I hope you got to enjoy a bit of it, either during your daily exercise or in the garden. I have been walking my dogs every day in the sunshine, plus we have done lots of jobs around the garden and I also got to relax and read in the sunshine (tried out some great new books for you all next year). Ben and Ava both had their birthdays during the holiday so we got to enjoy some birthday cake (yummy!) and one of our class had their birthday too. I hope you had a fun day - sorry we can't all sing to you. If anyone did anything you want to share you can send me a message or picture through email and if you want me to share it (let me know) I will put it on our class page.
Hope you are ready to start working hard again! First job, as always Monday morning will start with a spelling test and new spellings. Can you ask someone at home to test you this morning? If so do, with the spelling words from the 30th March I gave you before the Easter Holidays (they are still there if you need to get them again). Also attached are the new words and definitions to learn this week. Don't forget to keep testing yourself all week on the Classroom Secrets KIDS, as most of the words are on their spellings activities.
Next, Maths we are going to do an arithmetic test today, 30 minutes timed and then check your answers, I have put new ones on the Maths folder. Then or maybe before if you want a refresh can you complete lesson 1 from - Summer Term – Week 1 (w/c 20 April) - Adding decimals, we have done lots of these in class so you should find the worksheets quite straightforward.
Next, I want to say a big thank you to the seven of you who have been amazing on Accelerated reader. One person has done seven quizzes since we left school. Wow! Make sure you are reading and quizzing, there are lots of places online currently offering free books and audio-books that can be sent to a tablet or phone. So if you have run out of books at home there are still ways to keep reading.
Those of you that took part in the TT Rockstars Battle of the Bands well done, you were amazing I could see those of you that tried really hard and got absolutely amazing scores - I heard there was some sibling rivalry in some households. I will let you know when our next one is. In the mean time, keep practicing.
Finally, I have a couple of fun things you could give a try. Have a look on the Science folder and see if there is one of the experiments you haven't yet seen (give it a go if you have the equipment at home).
I have also updated most of the folders over the holidays so there are lots of new things to have a look at.
You could try this animation activity, which follows on from the flip book one we did before the holidays.
Don't forget, it would be PE today so try the Joe Wicks, the old ones are still available to try if you have missed any.
If you get bored, you could try my indoor scavenger hunt.
Have fun stay safe and I will speak to you tomorrow.
