Home Learning - Week Beginning 1st June

This Way, That Way - Maps & Exploration Topic

This Way, That Way - Maps & Exploration Topic 1

Home Learning - Week Beginning 1st June

 

This week's topic-web is designed to get you all thinking about Maps & Exploration. This theme is about considering the idea of exploration and thinking about how and why we map the world around us. There are lots of activities linked to map-making, or map-reading and a few linked to exploration and great explorers. 

Whatever year group you are in, you can work together on aspects of the topic theme. As with previous weeks, just select activities from the topic web 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.

Over this next week we would love to hear from everyone in our classes, all about what you have been up to during half term and anything linked to this topic. Don't forget you can email us to ask questions about any aspect of your Home Learning.

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.

English

 

This week, we'd love to see some of the writing you complete as part of our Maps & Exploration 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 there are differentiated comprehension activities linked to our Explorer topic. Just choose the level of comprehension that best suits you - one, two, or three stars.  

We have also uploaded a couple of 60 second reads pitched at Year 3/4 level for you to have a go at - Good Luck!

If you would like something else on top, 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. Most of you have been getting some super scores ,but a few of you are slipping under the 80% pass rate. Remember, if you don't reach 80%, then do the practice activity before giving the task another go.

 

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 June 1st.

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). They are brilliant and well worth a look to keep your maths skills in tip-top condition.

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 - Why don't you send someone in our group a Rock Slam Challenge?
  • This week's focus for your My Maths Learning is times tables. Please make sure you have completed any previous tasks you have not done yet too. Remember to have another go if you get an orange or red assessment. 
  • 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 revision on Number. Please make sure to use the 'Practice' option first and have more than one go if you score under 80%.
  • 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 X Tables Revision and there are several tasks related to that topic. This is because the White Rose and BBC Bitesize stuff is all about Fractions and we covered that recently. However, doing some revision would be very helpful for  some of you. 
  • DON'T FORGET, if you score under 80% on your My Maths Tasks, you need to do them again (having done the practice lesson first).
  • Do check out the White Rose lessons too as they are really worthwhile and would be great revision for many of you.
  • 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.
