Week Beginning 15th June
This week we will be looking at shapes and angles.
Watch the clip on BBC Bitesize and have a go at the activities.
Look at Let’s Learn 1 and then complete Worksheet 1. Use a protractor or a right angle checker (or a corner of a square / rectangle) to check if an angle is bigger or smaller than a right angle.
Look at Let’s Learn 2 and then complete Worksheet 2.
If you would like an extra challenge, have a look at the Mastery activity ‘Comparing and ordering angles.’
Look at the following BBC Bitesize link all about classifying triangles:
After watching the clip, have a go at the activity and the quiz. Then complete Worksheet 3.
Log in to My Maths and complete the Angles 1 and Properties of Triangles tasks to consolidate what we have done this week.
If you would like an extra activity, complete the Mastery activity ‘Classifying triangles.’
For this lesson we would like to set you a challenge! You will need to think creatively and persevere when it seems tricky. We’re hoping to give out lots of petals!
Parents / Carers – please look on the link above to find the problem on the NRich website. On the left hand side of the page is ‘Getting started’ which gives ideas on how the children may want to approach the problem. It also shows some possible solutions. It may be easiest for children to have some paper squares which they can manipulate to change the shapes and try out ideas. If this is not possible, there is an interactive tool on the website to use.
As an extra challenge, can you design a piece of art using different types of triangles?
Carrying on with our sports topic, this week we want you to get creative and active! Your task this week is to design and create your very own obstacle course. First, it is important to draw your design for your obstacle course, make sure you think carefully about what objects you can use in your course. Be creative as you want! Then, once you are happy with your design you can make your obstacle course in your garden or a room in your house, but make sure you ask your parent’s permission first. Once you have made your obstacle course, you can then test it out; why not get other members of your household to have a go to! There is a document with ideas of DIY obstacle courses that you can use for inspiration.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
You are going to create your own sporting star. You can base them on a star you admire or you might just want to create your own star. Using the thought shower we used last week, you are going to create your own mind map for you star. There is an example biography of Tom Daley attached if you would like to choose him as your star. You can either write about Tom or use it to get some ideas. It is also a good resource to look at because key features of a biography are highlighted. You might want to think of lots of possible ideas before deciding on your final idea. You might also want to edit some of the headings.
Create a timeline of your sports star. You can annotate the time line of draw pictures to help you identify when key things happened in your sports star’s life. There is a timeline with headings that you can add dates around or there is a blank template you can add your own dates to.
Today, we are going to plan what we are going to write under each heading. Your timeline and thought shower will help you to think of ideas. Aim for 3- 5 bullet points under each heading. Use the document called planning sheet.
Today we are going to write the first two paragraphs of the biography. There is a key word box to help you.
Today we are going to write the final two paragraphs of our biography. You might want to write it up in near afterwards to practise your handwriting.
We can't wait to see your final piece!
