I hope you’re all well and staying safe.
Here’s a maths investigation to have a go at.
Try this fraction work. We spent a lot of time looking at fractions earlier this term, let’s see what you can remember.

Before we finished, I had plans to do some art with natural/recycled resources. I took inspiration from the picture below. Why not have a go at recreating something similar at home? You can take a picture and stick it in your work book to show me when we are back at school.
I hope that everyone is keeping well. If you’re already feeling a bit stressed and need some time to unwind then here is a 10 minute suggestion to keep the kids entertained. Cosmic Kids Yoga is on You Tube and there are loads of videos for children to follow. You can just search ‘Cosmic Kids Yoga’ on You Tube or I’ve attached the link below to one of the exercises.
Endless Noughts and Crosses
Good morning, I hope you’re all well. I’m sharing a simple strategy game of noughts and crosses. It’s a bit more tricky than the normal game so why not see how many strings of noughts or crosses you can get up to? If you don’t have any squared paper then you can draw a large grid using paper, a pencil and a ruler.

Merlins and Ospreys have dug their own landfill on school premises!
They filled the landfill with different types of rubbish such as, milk cartons, plastic bottles, cardboard, tins, fruit cores and egg shells. The children then predicted what would happen to the items in a ‘rot or not’ exercise.
We plan to dig up the landfill in a month to check the results.
What a waste!
By Jessica and Callum (Ospreys)
Pupils in Merlins and Ospreys collected plastic over a week and put all of their plastic together in the Ospreys reading corner. Once it had all been collected, there was a mountain of plastic. We were shocked at how much plastic is being thrown away each week. We found that the majority of plastic was from packaging.
Here are some interesting facts that we’ve been learning about;
As plastic takes a very long time to decompose it is a big problem for the environment.
Every single square mile of the ocean contains 46,000 pieces of plastic.
At least 8 million tons of plastic enter the oceans each year. That’s similar to
emptying a garbage truck full of plastic into the ocean every minute.
Each year an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are used.
We need your help! Here are some ways that you can help;
Use re-usable bottles and lunchboxes.
Buy fruit and vegetables that are not packaged.
Have your milk delivered by a milk man in glass bottles.
Reuse plastic bags or use alternatives.
