Monday:

Inset Day - please look at the Easter Activities page.

Tuesday:

Maths: This week, we are starting a new topic on time. We will continue with our ‘Maths No Problem’ activities - starting with an In Focus Task then moving onto your workbook. The first lesson is converting 12 hours to 24 hours - I have attached a powerpoint to help you too.

 

If you find the workbook too tricky, then try the other activity below:

Mrs Hanby’s Maths group:

English: This week’s tasks are all based on an extract from a book called ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre. Do you recognise their names? They are the same authors of ‘Pugs of the Frozen North’! Read the extract and complete your daily task.

If required, please email: homework@byfleet.surrey.sch.uk for an audio recording of the extract for support.

Wednesday:

Maths: This week, we are starting a new topic on ‘Time’. We will continue with our ‘Maths No Problem’ activities - starting with an In Focus Task then moving onto your workbook activities. Today’s lesson is about seconds and minutes – remember there are 60 seconds in one minute.

Read the extract again and draw what you see using your imagination. You can use a pencil, pen or paint – maybe even collage! You choose.

Did you draw the island, Oliver, Mr Culpeper, or maybe the two talking to each other? Remember, everyone has their own ideas and imagines things their own way. This is a good thing and I can’t wait to see what you imagined!

Send your creations to me at: homework@byfleet.surrey.sch.uk

Thursday:

Maths: This week, we are starting a new topic on ‘Time’. We will continue with our ‘Maths No Problem’ activities - starting with an In Focus Task then moving onto your workbook activities. Today’s lesson is about changing hours into minutes. Remember there are 60 minutes in one hour.

Task three – Imagine & plan

Think about Mr Culpeper’s warning to Oliver:

‘And now you had best get back to shore, or you will be a wanderer too…

…Not all islands stay where you put them. Some move about. Here one minute, gone the next. This is one of them.’

Imagine you are Oliver, with the rucksack of Useful Things you have packed, and Mr Culpeper for company and the island does start to wander.

What do you think will happen next? Where do you think the island might be going? What do you think it might be like to travel on a moving island? Do you think you have any control over where you are heading?

Write about what happens next! Before you do this, create a plan. Use the story mountain template if you want to.

Friday:

Maths: This week, we are starting a new topic on ‘Time’. We will continue with our ‘Maths No Problem’ activities - starting with an In Focus Task then moving onto your workbook activities. Today’s lesson is about duration of time (how long something happens for).

If you find the workbook too tricky, then try the other activity below:

English: This week’s tasks are all based on an extract from a book called ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre. Do you recognise their names? They are the same authors of ‘Pugs of the Frozen North’! Read the extract and complete your daily task.

Task four – Imagine & write

Using your story mountain from yesterday, write what happens next in the extract.

Use the checklist below and see how many things you can include!

Spellings:

Practise your spellings daily using one of the activities from our school's spelling approach: 

Science: We are going to continue with our Science topic ‘States of Matter’. In the Spring Term, we started by identifying the properties of solids, liquids and gases, then we also identified some real-life examples for each.

This week, you are going to learn more about gases. Go through the powerpoint below, watch the video and answer the True or False questions.

Show the information you have learned presented in a leaflet, poster or powerpoint.

Topic: Our next topic is called ‘Save our Planet!’ On Wednesday 22nd April, it is Earth Day. This day started in 1970 and is celebrated each year to demonstrate support for protection of our environment.

Read the powerpoint and think about 5 things you can do or change to help protect the environment.

A Special Task:

This week, you may have heard about Captain Tom Moore who has raised millions of pounds for the NHS! How amazing! The WW2 veteran will be celebrating his 100th birthday on 30th April. 

Can you make him a special birthday card?
