Activities for the week (4th 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 week in maths, you could learn all about symmetry. If you’re feeling creative, you could do this by designing your very own symmetrical piece of art. You might also want to challenge yourself to see how many lines of symmetry you can make your artwork have, or ask a parent or sibling to draw half of the picture and you try to complete it!
Miss Arden feels better after beginning her day with exercise - try Joe Wicks, Miss Gates videos or for something a little different you could try some yoga. Below is a link to some Yoga from YouTube I enjoy:
Have you been reading How to train your dragon? You could write a book review or you could draw, paint or craft a dragon of your own then write or story or describe it! I would love to see your creations!
Read through the information on each part of the digestive system using the interactive game below:
If you feel like experimenting - below is a link to a 'model' digestive system for you to see the process. I'd love to see pictures if you do this!
