Activities for the week (20th April)
Learning Activities at Home
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!
Children would be learning about time. They need to be able to covert digital time e.g.8:30 to analogue e.g. Half past eight or 8:30am/pm.
Examples of activities include:
- Give children a digital time and ask them to write the time in words and as a clock face.
- Give children the time in works and ask them to write the time digitally.
- Ask children to tell you the time at different points of the day throughout the week – from a digital and analogue clock.
Children also should practise their 4 operations + - x ÷
Children have learnt to write descriptions, so it this would be a good activity to do to practise their adjective knowledge.
Children can also take quizzes on this website https://www.educationquizzes.com/ks2/english/ for the following areas:
and all the spellling quizzes.
You may be seeing rainbows everywhere to support the great things that key workers are doing. It would be great to see some of the rainbows you have created!
Rainbows are very bright and colourful. They are created when white light is split into a spectrum. This was discovered by Sir Isaac Newton who also discovered how gravity works!
Use the Internet and reference books to research more about Isaac Newton’s life to make a fact file - like we had been learning to do about Claude Monet. You could research:
. when he lived
. where he was from
. discoveries he made
Rainbows are made when sunlight is scattered by raindrops. The different colours that make up the light from the Sun become separated as they enter and exit the raindrops, which is why we can see the different colours clearly.
It is possible to see this process using just a torch and some glasses of water!
- Place a glass on the end of a table so it half on half off- Be careful!
- Place white paper, a towel or sheet underneath the glass.
- Shine the torch light (can use a phone torch) through the glass- make sure its point through the bottom of the glass.
What did you discover? Can you explain how the experiment worked using the explanation above?
PE with Joe Wicks at 9am.
PE with Miss Gates on Wednesday
