The adults in Shark Class are Miss Lyndley, Miss Goodwin and Mrs White.
We hope you have all had a great February half term break and are now rested and ready to learn again. We look forward to hearing your news. Keep up the hard work this term Sharks - you can achieve whatever you set your minds to. Remember impossible 🔜 I’m possible 🦈
Our topic this half-term is 'The Art of Living'
What does this mean to you? What is an art of doing something? 🤔
Bring your PE kit in on a Monday so it’s here for the week. We have indoor PE on a Tuesday - Up to Easter we are lucky enough to be having some yoga sessions with a specialis, and outdoor PE on a Friday (with Mrs Stone).
Keep on practising your times tables - they will be useful throughout life. You are expected to know up to the 12 times table fluently by now. Practise them in practical situations - if you are at a supermarket work out how much 6 bunches of bananas would cost, or 7 loaves of bread. Where else could you put your multiplication skills to use?
Read every day 📚 Read a range of books, fiction and non - fiction. Reading really helps our brains grow. As they say, Reading is like going on an adventure without having to leave your seat.
Those of you who who are learning a musical instrument - remember to practise 🎶 Did you know that music has been proven to be incredibly helpful to us in all sorts of ways?
Optional home learning tasks, 10th February 2018.
Non-optional homework this week is to have lots of fun 🙂
English/topic - traditional half term diary writin this week. However, not so traditionally, write it as if you were in Ancient Greece. What would you be doing day to day in Ancient Greece? Use the research you did in class to help, and do any further research you would like to help. What would you have eaten? What would you have been doing instead of playing computer games or watching tv? Would it have been windy and rainy as it is here today? Have fun with this.
Maths - Lots for you to do on Mathletics.
Multiply some fractions and use mixed numbers and improper fractions. Remember to turn the mixed numbers into improper fractions before you start.
Draw some nets for some 3D shapes you find around your house.
If you have any squared paper have a go at drawing a graph, then plotting a shape, then translating it.
Keep practising those times tables. Remember you should be able to answer them immediately. Get your family to fire questions at you and see how quickly you can answer them.
