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:
The White Rose Maths Team have prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from EYFS to Y6. They will be adding five more each week for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you how to help your child complete the activity successfully.
I hope you are all well. I thought you would like to have a go at a problem solving activity. In the maze there are numbers in each of the cells. Can you find a way through the maze where the numbers add to exactly 100?
Please keep practising your times tables on TT Rockstars. You have all impressed me so much in how quick and accurate you are. If you can’t remember your password, do let me know and I’ll send it to you.
I have added a link to a speedy tables sheet that we usually do each morning. Ask an adult to choose a column and then time how long it takes you to answer all the questions. Can you still answer them in under 2 minutes?
Finally, remember to record your daily reading in your reading diary. Five days is worth one sticker. I would love to see what you have been reading; it would be great if you could write a review and recommend a book to me. A review is worth an extra sticker!
At the moment I am reading ‘The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day’. I’ll let you know how I get on with it.
Pete McKee will be posting carton workshop lessons every Wednesday from today, for the next few weeks. They will be uploaded to the Pete McKee Youtube channel. All you will need is a few pieces of card, scrap paper and some pencils or pens.
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.
On Monday 10th February, the Snowy Owls and Golden Eagles visited the Imperial War Museum North in Salford. We had a busy, thought-provoking day. The children were fascinated by the vast range of artefacts and enjoyed the interactive ‘Action Stations’. Later in the morning, groups had the opportunity to take part in a Documentary Challenge, selecting items in the museum which particularly interested them.
