Activities for the week (18th May)
Children have been practising their comprehesion skills and below is a useful link ReadWorks where children have access to digital comprehension texts and questions to continue this.
All children can enter the following code: ZGPPD7. After this, children can find their name and then enter the password: 1234.
Once children have finished the questions, they can submit the 'assignment'. The assignment will then be marked and virtually returned to your child where they can review their progress.
We are interested to see what have been reading! If you have found a fascinating book then you can share your recommendation on Greenhill’s Facebook page - remember to explain why you loved it!
Play TT Rockstars and numbots – Competitions are updated weekly!
Asking children to tell you the time throughout the day is a great way to keep practising.
Baking and cooking is a great way to incorporate maths. Children can help you measure, divide the mixture and use fractions to cut the cake.
Practising the 4 operations when possible would be very helpful.
This website has lots of activities for children to do with very little resources- some just pen and paper;
Miss Arden feels better after beginning her day with exercise - try Joe Wicks, Miss Gates videos.
Practise your cursive handwriting. This week you could draft a 'blog' about something you have done or something you would like to talk about - absolutely anything! You could find pictures from online or draw your own.
Look at a map of the United Kingdom. Do you know where Wakefield is? Do you know what county you live in? Do you know any costal towns nearby? What sea surrounds the UK? Below is a link to a blank map - you could lable some of these areas on the map and even create a fact file to demostrate your new research of the UK!
Below are two links - one all about food chains and another about classification keys. Research all about these. Perhaps you could look in your garden or when you are on a walk, what food chains can you see? Can you make your own classifcation key?
This is a link to a classifcation key that chilren can design for some sweets;
