Hello, everyone. How did you get on with yesterday’s learning?

Today, as it would be Being happy and healthy week, choose a physical activity to start your day. You could save the others to do throughout the week when you need a brain break.

Here are the answers from yesterday’s learning.

1.Remind yourself of how we cut foods using the bridge and claw techniques.

2. Read these example recipes – rainbow fruit skewers, fruit kebab and fabulous fruit salad.

3. Depending on what ingredients you have at home, use this planning sheet to design and make your own fruit kebab or fruit salad.

4. Enjoy your healthy dish!

Lesson 2 reading

Today’s lesson is all about healthy teeth.

Click here (KS1 lesson) to read about Tilly the Tooth (with an optional science experiment).

Happy Tuesday, Y6!

There’s an extra task I’d like you to do this week so I’ll keep reminding you each day. It’s completely optional but it’d be amazing if we could get everyone in Moortown’s class of 2020 to take part… hint hint!!!

I’d like you to film a short clip of yourself describing a favourite memory from primary school. It could be a sports day, an in joke from class or a funny Y4 residential memory.  Get thinking!

If you want to, I’d also like you to add why you’re proud of yourself/why it’s awesome to be you and what you want to be when you grow up. 

Send your videos (they can be separate but no longer than 30 – 60 seconds) to my email address:

jenwilson@spherefederation.org

You need to use your scanning skills to quickly find either the key information or the pictures!

Hello Year 1!

I hope you have all had a great weekend despite the weather!

Here are today’s tasks:

Spellings

Maths video       Maths task

The video is quite long today, so it may be a good idea to pause me when I’ve finished teaching the first activity. You can then complete that activity on the sheet before watching the rest of the video and completing the second activity.

I advise you to do this on the video but not until the end! Silly me!

Phonics – ue

Let me know you get on! Please continue to send me your learning or anything else you have been up to.

It’s the end of another week. Thanks very much for all your hard work. Hope you have a super weekend and I’ll see you on Monday (kind of)!

Click here for yesterday’s maths calculations answers.

Today’s learning:

It’s our regular Love of Reading session. Do what you usually do! Or you can mix it up if you like and draw a character from your book or write an interview with a character or sketch a setting or scene from the book or list some facts you’ve learnt if reading a non-fiction text. Or, do something else related to reading!

Click here for the link to the Friday challenges. Remember to try the Year 5 ones for an extra challenge.

The weather should be fine (just a few thunderstorms) for the final Andy Goldsworthy challenges:  Andy Goldsworthy Challenges – Week 4.

Today, we put this week’s learning into action and find missing angles in triangles. Click here to begin.
Challenge
1 and 2
Reading  – LO: summarise a text
Today, we would like you to attempt the infamous ERM challenge! Your task is to read this text, and then summarise it without saying ERM!
Your options are:
to either summarise it to someone in your household whilst trying your best not saying ERM. Members of your household could also give it a go, too!
OR
If it is feasible, you could send a video to your teacher with your attempt(s)!
In books: summarise the text in 20, 10, 5 and 1 word!
Have fun!

Science – LO: Earth Squad

After the success of Defenders of Mathematica, I thought I’d do an investigation into what other games we could play.
Introducing Earth Squad! This game is similar to DoM but instead of maths, you must test your scientific knowledge of animals, plants and the human body as you explore some of the world’s most interesting habitats.
Your task is to reach at least level Ace on two habitats. Go for Pro if you like! Go for all three if you’re up for it!!
Send me a picture of your character and any special items you have accrued.
