Maths

Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa.

 

Today, as you have been used to doing, you will first need to visit the White Rose website for the video slides, and worksheets. (I’ve also put the question sheet and answer sheet below.)

 

You can also visit the BBC Bitesize website for an extra video on today’s maths lesson (Wednesday 13th May).

 

The links are below:

Just a reminder – the idea is that the BBC provides further support to help you learn, you will still need to complete the White Rose question sheet, and as always, you can check your answers.

Literacy

Wednesday 13th May

LO: TBAT sequence events and summarise.

 

You should be very familiar with the story of the film, ‘Catch it!’, by now.

https://www.literacyshed.com/catchit.html

Today, I’d like you to summarise the story in only six sentences. 

 

This is quite a tricky task. You need to consider the key elements of the story and make sure that you include enough information so as not to miss out any crucial details. At the same time, you also  can’t put too much detail in – after all, you only have six sentences.

 

Go to your Purple Mash 2Dos’s and you will find a story board. Complete today’s task.

Science – Forces

Wednesday 13th May

LO: To explore the effects of water resistance.

 

We’re continuing with our science topic today – FORCES.

 

Can you remember what you learned in your last lesson? What vocabulary have you been using so far in this topic?

 

Watch the Powerpoints for Lesson four - PARTS 1 and 2. 

Try to think carefully about the questions it asks as you work your way through it.

 

Today's task may well take a few days - I hope you enjoy it!

 

Over the next few days, I’d like you to build your own streamlined boat. It will be a ‘junk model’ boat. You could use recycling, such as plastic bottles, or any other bits you think might work – though be sure to ask an adult first!

 

Remember, the key thing to focus on is building a boat that is streamlined.

  • What shape will it need to be?
  • How will you make sure it can ease through the water?
  • What would stop it from smoothly cutting through the water?

 

Look at this website if you’re struggling for ideas – it’s probably a little young for you, but it might give you some inspiration.

I’d love to see how your boats turn out!
