10.6.20 Happy Wednesday

Good morning everyone. I hope that you are all doing well. I learnt something new when I was out on a walk yesterday.  My discovery was how to tell the  difference between a damselfly and a dragonfly. When they’re resting, a dragonfly has its wings out and a damselfly has its wings together. Every day’s a school day! Has anyone else learnt something new recently?

I know some of you have managed to sign up for the reading challenge. (See Monday’s post for details).  I believe that your parent has to register before you can sign up – I hope that helps if you’ve been struggling to sign up.

I have attached a copy of the latest Science magazine on a post in the Purple Mash blog. This issue is all about flight. There are lots of fun activities you might like to  try including making an unusual looking paper aeroplane.

Ideas for the day:

Maths – Subtract whole with more than 4 digits

English – Today you will be looking at some artwork by Banksy. You will then recap learning about relative clauses and write sentences with a relative clause. You will need to look at Day 3 and the relative clauses PowerPoint in the link below.

Science (for the week) – Find out about life cycles  of a  mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird. How you present your learning is up to you.  Watch the film below to get you started!
