A parent or carer will need to sign up but it’s all free. You will recognise several of the authors from our Reading Spine. If nothing else, it is fun to put faces to names and to find out a little more about some of our favourite writers.
Don’t forget to keep using Rising Stars maths and GPS – I can see how well you are all getting on. There has been some impressive work on Algebra and Fractions! I have opened all of the missions up now, so feel free to pick and choose any areas you would like to practise.
The Year 5 and Year 6 children have been learning how to code. Just before the school was closed, we were about to make our own computer game using Kodu. If the children would like to continue with it, the link is here:
There are some fantastic, practical ideas here for developing children’s science, technology, engineering and maths skills. The first four are aimed at children aged between 5 and 7; the others are for KS2 children. However, feel free to go with what interests you! If you click on the links, you will find a wide range of excellent linked resources.
I thought some of you might like to have a go at this problem solving activity. You can make it harder by clicking on the cog at the top and choosing a different level. If you are up for a real challenge you could click on ‘What’s it Worth?’ at the bottom of the screen.
Good afternoon, Snowy Owls and Golden Eagles. I hope you are all keeping safe and well.
I’d like to share one of my favourite mathematical games with you. You can play this online or make your own simple game board and play against someone at home. (Even better – work it out by playing online and then challenge an adult!) Start with two frogs on either side then increase. If you find out the minimum number of moves each time, you should soon start to see a pattern.
We were incredibly proud of the Y5 and Y6 children for singing live on Radio Sheffield and being so eloquent and confident when interviewed. If you haven’t yet had a chance to listen, you can hear us on the BBC Sounds app or website. We were on at approximately 8:40 a.m. and 4:20 p.m.
Also, thank you so much to everyone who came to the launch of our song and music video; we hope you will agree that our comperes put together an excellent presentation, explaining the work of War Child very clearly. Our fantastic parents, grandparents, carers and friends are doing just as we asked. Amazingly, our video has already had more than 600 views!
Here, you can see some photos of the Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls hard at work song writing. Our efforts have resulted in a stunning new single entitled ‘The Loudest Voice’, which we have produced in aid of War Child, a charity that aims to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children in war. The video is now ready to be launched on Thursday 12th March – watch this space! The Loudest Voice will be performed live for one night only at our concert on Thursday 26th March. Tickets will be on sale soon.
