Hello Pankhurst Class,
We hope you are all well. A massive thank you to everyone who is responding on this blog – especially the few of you who complete ALL of the work EVERY DAY. You know who you are so jolly well done – certificates will be on their way to you very soon.
Here are your tasks for today.
English – write a diary entry for the future. By that we mean a diary entry that would be written as soon as ‘lockdown’ is finished. What are your hopes and dreams? What will you do first? How many things are you impatient to do? Where will you go? Who will you be eager to see? Mention in lots of detail your hopes and dreams now you are ‘free’! How has lockdown changed you (if it has) and what are the positives now. There may of course, be some things that you will miss about lockdown like lie- ins and extra time with family!
Maths – What is a ‘net’ of a shape. We don’t mean as in a fishing net – the word means something else in a mathematical context. Give us a definition of what it means.
Think about the following shapes and tell us what shapes would be in their net:
Cube, cuboid, cylinder, square based pyramid.
What would the net look like. Have a go at trying to draw it and either send us the photograph of your work or put it in your home learning folder.
Challenge – if you finish all of the above and would like us to send you some nets that you could print off and make, let us know via the blog and we will send them to you. You could make it, decorate it or use it to give someone a gift in.
Science – revision of our work on ‘Properties and materials’.
What is a ‘mixture’? We discussed last term how we could separate different mixtures. How would you separate the following mixtures:
- marbles and multi-link cubes
- marble and corks
- sweets or beads of different colours
- paper clips and matchsticks
- sand, and water
- sand, large stones and gravel
- salt and water
Are the above ‘reversible’ or ‘irreversible’? How do you know?
The following link will help you:
Write a description about the separation techniques that could be used for at least 2 of the above examples. Link your description to the properties of the materials involved. The following vocabulary will be useful:
Enjoy! Remember that if you have any questions or queries for us, you can write them in your blog post or use the Year 5 e mail address.
