Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Wednesday, 13th May

Good morning! 💙

How did you get on with yesterday's maths work? Not as exciting as Monday's emoji task that many of you enjoyed but hope you managed to do it. 

 

Maths – WALT draw on a grid

Again, I have attached three different sets of worksheets. These DO NOT all need to be completed – do what you can. Here’s a reminder of what they are:

VF – this gives you the opportunity to practise the skill you are learning (you’ll need to use lots of prior knowledge to complete this today – see below)

R/PS – is the next step, where you are using your skills to problem solve or reason

EXT – this is an extension to the work and presents you with questions that need more discussion and thinking skills. This is good if you want to challenge yourself!

Each document has three differentiated worksheets (labelled in coloured stars in the left hand corner) D = easiest, E=Y4 expected, GD=next step. Choose which one you feel more comfortable with but remember your brain needs challenging to learn new skills! If it’s too easy, you should try progressing – the worst that can happen is… you get it wrong and learn why!

Although today’s work is still about plotting coordinates, the VF worksheet requires lots of other mathematical knowledge (mostly from your learning in Y3). Just in case you need a reminder:

·         a ‘polygon’ is basically a really posh word for a 2D shape with straight sides!

·         Right angled triangle – is a triangle with a right angle. What’s a right angle? … 90 degree angle (a squared angle).

·         Vertices = a posh word for corners

·         Parallelogram = four sided shape with two sets of parallel lines – parallel lines… they will never meet

Hopefully that will help, however, just have a go and complete what you can and I am only a message away if you need some help!

 

English- Explanation - The Water Cycle

 

Can you remember the four key words that link to the water cycle? Hopefully, the word work helped you understand the four key processes of the water cycle.  Today, you could have a go at making your own water cycle. This could be done in many ways, I am leaving up to you. Here are some examples:

·         Labelled diagram

·         Junk model

·         Lego model (with labelled explanations)

·         Pic collage (using either drawn illustrations and photographs taken)

·         iMove or other movie maker (you could use your actions from Tuesday, voice recordings)

·         Sandwich bag investigation (see attachment)

The idea of this activity is that it will really help you out with ensuring you can discuss and explain the whole process of the water cycle.

 

Looking forward to seeing your work.
