Hello Pankhurst Class,
We hope that you’ve had a brilliant weekend and have been spending some quality time with your families.
Today is the first day of our home learning experience! Hopefully you have got your home learning packs to keep you busy and we will be posting daily activities for you to complete whilst you are at home. The packs can be completed once daily tasks are finished.
Here are your first set of activities:
- Tell Mrs Leeming and Mrs Millard how you are going to organise your time this week. Are you in school every day? If not, how do you plan on organising your day? What time will you dedicate to Maths, English and other curriculum subjects? How will you make time for exercise, reading and anything else you need to plan in? Tell us during the week, how this going – how else are you filling your time?
2. Complete the ‘Floating Fortress’ writing challenge already posted.
3. Tell us everything that you can about equivalent fractions. We have been looking at this for the past two weeks and even if you haven’t been in school for all of that time, there should be lots that you can tell us already. What is a equivalent fraction? How do you find an equivalent fraction?
What happens to the numerator and the denominator? How do you know a fraction is equivalent to another one? Can you give examples of equivalent fractions? Use the internet to find out anything else that may be relevant.
4. See the previous post about reading while you are at home. Begin to log your reading in your Reading Records as we will be asking for a weekly update about your reading while you are at home. We will also be asking you to complete book reviews so make any notes that you think may be useful.
5. Science – revision of ‘Properties of materials’
- What are the 3 states of matter?
- Give 5 examples of each of solids, liquids and gases.
- According to the Particle Model, what are the properties of solids, liquids and gases, Describe how the particles move around in a solid, liquid and a gas. How do they move/behave? Describe this in words on the blog and if you also want to draw a diagram, this could go into your packs.
- Write a definition for the following vocabulary: particle, bonds, transparency, translucency, hardness, magnetism, thermal conductor, electrical conductor, mixture, dissolve, soluble/insoluble, solution, reversible change.
