Week Beginning 29th June
For this week’s topic, we would like you to get creative again but this time design and invent your very own sport! To design your own sport you can combine two existing sports together for example combining chess and boxing to create the sport ‘chess boxing’. Once you have thought of two sports to combine together give your new sport a name and describe it in detail about how it would work. Think carefully about the equipment that is needed, the players and the rules and make sure they are clearly explained. Once you have described your new sport then draw a picture to show your new sport and make sure it is labeled. However, if you don’t want to combine two existing sports but want to be daring and completely create a new sport from scratch then you can do this too. If possible, you could even have a go at playing your new sport that you have designed.
Good luck and have fun!
Continuing from last week…
1. This week we will be writing a sequel to the story last week. We are going to use a wishing tale structure. We are going to think about what happens to the man next. When he wakes up what is the first thing he is thinking? What is he going to do next? How does he get out of bed when his whole house has disappeared! Look at the wishing tale structure sheet.
Rewatch the clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i62znvPLlrw
Mind map four different ideas of what could happen to the man at each point of the story.
The human was asleep in his bed and then woke up…
Use the mind map to think of your ideas (planning ideas sheet).
2. Today you are going to choose one of your ideas and plan a story mountain (like you did last week) for your sequel. A plan is short notes outlining your ideas. Use the table to help you think what happens at each point of your story. You might want to draw your own or use the PDF story mountain. Join the build up and the problem together.
3. Today we are going to write our first paragraph of our story. Set the scene. Think about how your character was described last week and how they might feel now? Can you show their feelings in their actions and appearance instead of just telling the reader how they felt. Decide what your character wants to do now. Use the keywords box to help (Planning sheet one).
4. Plan the rest of your story. There are fronted adverbials at the bottom to help you. Think about key features you can include (final planning sheet).
5. Have a go at writing out your story! Try to challenge yourself you might manage one paragraph or you might manage to write them all.
It’s a mixed week in Maths so get ready for the challenge! We will be finishing off our shape unit and starting to look at position and movement. We would also like you to complete some Maths challenges on Friday to recap some of the Maths skills we have looked at this year.
1./ Have a look at the ‘Comparing shapes introduction.’ Think about the different ways in which the shapes have been sorted and compared. Then have a go at worksheet 10.
2./ Mind workout shape investigation. Look at the mind workout sheet and try to make 10 symmetric shapes using 5 squares. You can use a blank sheet of squared paper or print off the mind workout sheet. If you have to use plain paper, make sure you use a ruler to draw out your squares. The answer sheet is below so you can use it to give you some ideas if you need to.
3./ We are going to start looking a new Maths topic all about Position and Movement. First, watch the following clip to find out how to plot coordinates on a map:
Then complete the Pirate map coordinates sheet. There is a 1 star, 2 star and 3 star version to choose from. As an extra challenge, can you design and make a treasure map and add pictures at different coordinates? Ask a grown up or brother / sister if they can tell you the coordinate of each picture.
4./ Today you are going to plot specific points and draw sides to make a polygon. Look at the introduction sheet ‘Plot specific points’ below and then complete worksheet 3.
5./ Today we would like you to have a look at the Maths Challenges on the BBC Bitesize Daily lessons. Here’s a link for week 6:
and here’s week 8:
The challenges get more difficult as you go along and will recap lots of Maths skills that we have covered. Good luck!
