Easter Challenge

Fortnight commencing Monday 6th April

 

Good morning Maples 

 

I hope that you are all having fun at home with your families.

Over the Easter break, I will not be setting any 'school work' for you, but instead have set you a few challenges. I will still be checking both Dojo and the new class email, so please feel free to send me any pictures and/or videos of what you get up to. 

Have a lovely Easter.

Week commencing Monday 30th March

 

Good morning Maples...and welcome to another fun packed week in Virtual Maples!

 

This week, I will be working in the nest with Mr Hall and Mrs Lound. To make sure that you have plenty of activities, I am setting five projects which you can work on throughout the the week. Please keep sending in your letters to Miss Nelson, castle project pictures and risk-taking photographs as I will still be checking Dojo at least once a day.

 

  1. English Project - This week, I would like you to create a 'comic strip' style myth. So far, you have explored the characteristics of your mythical creature and looked at some graphical novels on MyOn. Now, it is your turn to plan and write your own story in this graphical style. Try to remember all the features of myths so that your story and characters are appropriate to the genre, and don't forget to plan your entire story before you start writing and drawing. Good luck everyone - I can't wait to see the results!
  2. Maths Project - I've put the Easter Mystery Maths Game on the website. It will probably take you a few days to complete on your own, and the answers are included in case you get stuck. If you want, you could try and make your own game in the same style.
  3. Share your Knowledge - This year you have been provided with several knowledge organisers to learn. Now it's your turn to write one! Pick a subject which you know a lot about - this could be a hobby, an author...anything really. Then, make a knowledge organiser to help me learn about it. Keep it safe so that later in the year you will be able to write a quiz based on it to test my knowledge.
  4. Art/DT - Build a model of your mythical creature using things you find around the house. It doesn't have to be permanent, but make sure you check with a parent before turning the sofa into a two-headed puppy! Next, write some instructions to help others recreate your creature. 
  5. Reading - Finish reading one of the books in the 'fiction' project.

 

Don't worry if you don't manage to complete all the activities.

Good morning Maples...and happy Friday!

 

Well, we've done it! Our first week as 'Virtual Maples' is nearly over...and I think it's been fab!

 

To finish off the week, here is a few activities you could have a go at today or over the weekend:

  1. Start looking at the new project on MyOn (graphic novels).
  2. Complete page 5 of your 'Maths Activity Workbook'. I'll put the answers on the school website on Monday so that you can mark your own work.
  3. Write a full book review for a book you have read on MyOn. I'll put the review sheets we have used before on the website in case you're not sure where to start.
  4. Complete some activities on code.org.
  5. Start to learn to type using the website on SpongyElephant - I'm sure you'll all be better than me!
  6. As we are risk-taking this term, send me a picture of you doing something new. This could be helping a parent with the washing, baking a cake, eating a new food or anything else you can think of. 
  7. Complete your daily diary entry.

 

Don't worry if you don't manage to complete all the activities.

Thursday's Science Activity

Thursday 26th March

 

Good morning Maples. 

 

After a few days at home, I hope you are all settling into working in a different way. I am really enjoying seeing your work, and hope that those of you who haven't sent me anything are enjoying the tasks. Could I ask that everyone who hasn't already done so, logs on to MyOn today. If you have any difficulties, let me know over Dojo.

 

Here is a few activities you could have a go at today:

  1. Write a description of your monster. Make sure you include plenty of noun phrases and adverbs. Try to write a few paragraphs. These could include a description of what your monster looks like, where your monster lives, what they like and dislike and anything else you can think of. Try to send me your best noun phrase (get a parent to type it to me if you like). I'll collect all the phrases to put on a virtual working wall.
  2. I'm not setting any specific maths as Mr Pillans has a science activity for you today. If you have any time free, don't forget to jump on Rock Star Times Tables.
  3. Science activity (see additional file)
  4. Complete your daily diary entry.

 

Don't worry if you don't manage to complete all the activities.

Answers to Wednesday's maths

Wednesday 25th March

 

Good morning Maples

 

Here is a few activities you could have a go at today:

  1. Some of you may have noticed a new project in MyOn. For those who haven't seen it yet, it's a book on how to draw monsters! Today, you are going to design your own mythical monster. You can use ideas from the book and anything you can remember from your English work. Make sure you include plenty of detail in your pictures because we will be using them for further work. If you can, send me your picture so that I can make a monstrous gallery.
  2. Complete page 4 of your 'Maths Activity Workbook'. I'll put the answers on the school website tomorrow so that you can mark your own work. Take care to read the instructions carefully, and use your times table knowledge to help you.
  3. Use your planning sheet on page 1 of your 'English Activity book' to create a non-fiction text about spring. You could make a poster, leaflet or page of text, but make sure you concentrate on the quality of your writing.
  4. Complete your daily diary entry.

 

Don't worry if you don't manage to complete all the activities.

Good morning Maples

 

Here is a few activities you could have a go at today:

  1. Find a book on MyOn to read. Read it carefully as you'll be writing a book review at the end of the week.
  2. Complete page 3 of your 'Maths Activity Workbook'. I'll put the answers on the school website tomorrow so that you can mark your own work. Make sure you practise your 8 times table as I'll be setting Rock Star Times Tables to test you next week.
  3. Choose a selection of five objects from around your house and estimate their order of mass (send a picture if you like). You could then try measuring their mass to see if you were correct.
  4. Look at page 1 of your 'English Activity book'. Fill in the page to plan your piece of writing. We'll do the actual writing tomorrow.
  5. Complete your daily diary entry.

Sharing the Rainbows

Sharing the Rainbows 1

Monday 23rd March

 

Good morning Maples

 

Here is a few activities you could have a go at today:

  1. Try and access MyOn and have a look through the books available. Read 'Measuring mass'. There will be a challenge based on this tomorrow.
  2. Complete page 2 of your 'Maths Activity Workbook'. I'll put the answers on the school website tomorrow so that you can mark your own work. You could even make your own similar puzzle if you like.
  3. Create a rainbow picture. If you can take a picture of your art, you could send it to me on Dojo or start a Dojo portfolio. If I get sent enough, I'll make a collage to put on our home page.
  4. Start a diary/journal. Think carefully about what you could include. Ideas could include:
  •  activities you have completed during the day
  •  any exercise you did
  • what you ate for dinner
  • what the weather was like
  • anything interesting or surprising that happened

As it is a diary, you could also include pictures.

Try to complete an entry in your diary every weekday. It will really help you remember all the fun things you've been doing when you come back to school. I'm really looking forward to reading them.

 

Don't worry if you don't manage to complete all the activities.
