Week Beginning 8th February 2021

Monday 8th February 2021
 
Good morning everyone! Live English zoom today - our handwriting from Friday's lesson. Week 5 session 2. We are also going to do some work on apostrophes.
 
Maths - video link until my voice is 100% back to normal!
 
Topic this afternoon- Mr Wilcox has set you some Purple mash and there is a fun PE activity for you to try out. If you don't have ball or bats at home- be creative and improvise! You could use balloons, your hands, use a marker in the garden instead of a cone.
Tuesday 9th February 2021
 
English live zoom with me this morning - all about metaphors. There is a metaphor game below if you want to do some extra practice and there is a word mat to help you if you are stuck for ideas.
 
Maths - video link today.
 
This afternoon is Science! Watch video one and then video 2 please. Complete any activities that the teacher tells to you do. Once you have watched these videos, then you can take a look at the chocolate investigation powerpoint. It is only a few slides long, but it will tell you what to do. There is an investigation sheet to complete as well. 
 
You may need to improvise a bit- as I suspect you may not have the thermometer required to measure the exact temperatures- but it will help you get an idea. I would choose 3 places to test the temperature. Perhaps outside (it is SO COLD at the moment), you could get a grown up to help you with some boiling water, and maybe choose another option too. I doubt you have tin foil containers either- this is ok. Use an alternative, like a pyrex dish. Just remember to think carefully about what you have learned from the science lessons and use this to help you explain what results you get.
 
I have also put an alternative science experiment on the page too- dancing raisins! You could have a go at this, as well as or instead of the chocolate.

Maths - video link today.
 
Topic this afternoon- you have a pre-record session on R.E to understand all about the Hindu celebration of Holi. There is also a fun craft activity to complete after the video.
Thursday 11th February 2021
 
Live English zoom with me this morning - a short session around editing and redrafting your work and how to publish effectively.
 
Maths - last video link this week.
 
Topic - This week, there is a pre-recorded session from me for Geography. I would like you to understand and compare the landscapes of Mylor Bridge (or where you live) to Whitby.
 
I would then like you to take some photographs of your local area. You can do this over half term too. Ensure you take a variety of photographs. You will need them for your Geography work after half term. Make sure you take pictures of residential use, industrial use, agricultural use, recreational use. Also, take pictures of your favourite landscapes or favourite buildings/ monuments, familiar sights to you in your local area.

IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!!
Show and tell today with those of you who were selected by the wheel on Monday. 
 
Maths - Today, I have set an activity for Chinese New Year maths. Everyone must complete the Adding and subtraction sheet please. If you want to- you can also complete the multiplication sheet- but be warned- there is division on there too, and we have not done that together yet!
 
This afternoon - I have set a Chinese New year dance challenge activity. All the information you need is on the powerpoint. Read and listen through. Make sure you try and include your family in your dance! Try and video or take a picture as evidence for me, and send it in. There are some ideas and structure help on the dance development sheet if you want to use it.
 
If you really do not want to do the CHinese new year dance challenge, you could follow the PE video link below. Mrs Walker from Penryn College has put a video together. You need a ball or a rolled up jumper/pair of socks!
