Week Commencing 27th September

Below are the Fluent in Five and Rapid Reasoning questions that we do before every Maths lesson. Please continue to do these at home - start on Week 3 day 1 for Monday and then each day follow on with the next day's work. The answers are available underneath the questions for the day.

Maths

Today in Maths we will be focusing on negative numbers. Can you count backwards in 10s from 100? Where do you end up? What happens once you reach zero? When do we use negative numbers in the real world?

There are a few videos below to help you with the concept of negative numbers. Once you have watched these, have a look at the PowerPoint below which gives you some questions about different temperatures.

There is then a worksheet for you to try. Let me know how you find it on the class email

This week's hypothesis is:

It is easier to play charades with words ending in 'gue' than 'que'

Believe it or not? Make a prediction about whether this is true! See if you can demonstrate the following words to your grown up and investigate the hypothesis.

league, plague, mosque, barbeque, vague, grotesque, technique, antique, fatigue, tongue, intrigue, physique, analogue, catalogue, picturesque, unique, cheque, opaque, epilogue, boutique, rogue

What conclusion can you come to?

Key learning:

- In general, words ending in 'g' have the 'gue' ending

- In general, words ending in 'k' have the 'que' ending

English

This week we are starting a new topic - recounts. We will be learning all about the first people to reach the top of Mount Everest and looking at the different theories surrounding the expedition.

PSHE

Today's topic in PSHE today is online communication. This is such an important topic in the current world! Have a look at the link below, which will take you to some information on BBC Bitesize about different ways we can communicate online. Once you have had a read of the information, try and make your own notes (without looking back!) to see how much you understand. Then watch the video that is on the page and take the quiz at the end

PE

Today we are beginning to focus on netball and developing our key skills. Over the next few weeks we will learn about positioning, passing, shooting and defending as well as the basic rules of the game. We will be able to play full games too.

If you want to, have a look at some of the basic rules of netball so that you are prepared when you come back into school. Also take some time to complete some physical activity of your own.
