Home Learning - Week Beginning 11th May

 

This week's topic-web is designed to get you all thinking about travel and transport. Whatever year group you are in, you can work together on aspects of the topic theme. We hope that you have enjoyed working together so far on our whole-school topics.

 

This week, we are basing our topic on the theme of Transport & Travel, and any work you do (and send us) on sustainable transport and travel will contribute towards our Green Flag application this year.

 

Take a look at the topic web and select activities that you would like to do - either on your own, with your brother/sister, or together as a family.

As always, we love seeing what you have been up to, so remember to e-mail your teacher with pictures. Thanks to all the children and parents who have already sent things through to us - we love seeing and hearing all about your lock-down experiences and Home Learning!

 

In addition to the topic-web work, your teachers will have set you Maths and English work that is specific to your Year group / Class.

See the notes below the topic web.

It has been lovely getting emails from many of you keeping us up to date with things you have been doing. We have had great fun reading all about them and putting some of your photos onto the different galleries on the website.

Why not check out the galleries in each of the topic folders on the 'Home Learning' page (under the parents tab) on the MOSPS website to see what your friends are getting up to. This week there has been lots of costume action, as many of you have enjoyed dressing up in VE Day celebration costumes. Look out for all your 'missing you' messages on this week's video (information to follow). 

 

English

 

Thank you to those who have sent in examples of their writing from last week's VE Day Anniversary Topic - there was some great research into family connections with the war and VE Day. This week, we'd love to see some of the writing you complete as part of our Transport & Travel topic, or, in fact, any writing linked to the comprehension tasks in the links below - remember you can send us photos of any writing you do via Gmail. 

 

This week we have set you five further tasks tasks to complete on Education City - try to complete as many as you can over the week.

 

Once again, we have uploaded a reading challenge for you to complete this week, (created by the Hampshire English team). There are two options: The Sound Collector (for children who are working below age-related expectations) and The train to Impossible Places  (for children who are working towards age-related expectations and above). The pack is based around the extract included and is designed to take 1 hour so we would recommend splitting this over two 30 min sessions or even three 20 mins sessions. 

If you would like something else, then visit the BBC Bitesize website and access some of the Reading Activities (either this week's, or any that have been put on the BBC website before).

Maths

 

Once again, thank you to all of you who have been doing your My Maths tasks each week. We are impressed with the scores coming in. Your teachers are responding to your efforts using the My Maths Feedback, so don't forget to check. 

 

This Week's My Maths:

All pupils have been set a range of different tasks on My Maths. These will have a start date of May 11th.

Don’t forget they can use the ‘Practice’ page first so they know what to do. It might be useful to have some paper for jottings.

 

In addition to the My Maths Tasks, there are also the White Rose Daily Maths tasks (with video tutorials) and the Hampshire Maths Team's 'Problem of the Week'.  The Problem of the week is accessible below  - to access the White Rose Resources, click on the link and look for your child's Yr Group Resources.

 

Problem of the Week:

Each week the Hampshire Maths team are setting a problem of the week for each year group. The problems have a worked example for you to use, and then a problem for you to try yourself. Check out this week's problems below - we'd love to see some pictures of your outcomes!

Maths Group - Additional Guidance

Miss Walton’s Group:

  • Use the Multiplication Check website (https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/ ) or TT RockStars (https://ttrockstars.com/) to continue to practise your times tables - Can you beat your personal best?
  • This week's focus for your My Maths Learning is Addition and Subtraction. 
  • If you have completed all the My Maths tasks, why not try one of the booster packs - chose a topic you want to practise.

 

Miss Ivey’s Group:

  • Use the Multiplication Check website (https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/ ) or TT RockStars (https://ttrockstars.com/) to continue to practise your times tables. I have sent you all a challenge on Rock Slam
  • This week's My Maths is to practice your 3, 4 and 8 times tables. There are 3 tasks set on MyMaths and the focus on TT Rockstars are these times tables. 
  • If you have completed all the My Maths tasks, why not try one of the booster packs - chose a topic you want to practise.

 

 Mr Willis’ & Mrs Symonds' Group:

  • This week's My Maths is focused around Division and there are several tasks related to that topic - some may be revision tasks and some may be new, but don't forget that you can always do the lesson before beginning the homework, just to remind yourself what to do.
  • This topic does align with the BBc Bitesize resources and the White Rose Resources, so check both of those websites for further practice (although White Rose does include Perimeter and area, which we did recently).
  • Of course you can always visit the Multiplication Check website (https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/ ) or TT RockStars (https://ttrockstars.com/) to continue to practise your times tables too.
