Week 4

Hello Frogs!  I hope you are all keeping well.  Please remember that you can send in any photos of your work, or messages to me on work@millhillandwoodcroft.co.uk   For those who have done this already, you will know that I send a reply to every message that I get.  So keep the work and the messages coming!...
English
I’ve another exciting, new activity for you to try this week… it’s called Radioblogging.net
Radioblogging.net produces daily shows, with interactive activities, brought to you by people including Pie Corbett, Deputy Mitchell, Ian Rockey and Russell Prue – all you have to do is listen and, if you want to, blog.  It’s live, fun and interactive.  
Each day there are spelling, grammar and vocabulary games, followed by creative writing and responding to reading. The show features a poet of the day and author of the week. You can follow on a daily basis, by using the link that is right at the bottom of this section, but you can also look back at previous episodes, which is what I am going to show you this week.
I found a previous show that was all about Space!  It sounded so exciting that I’ve listened to it and I’ve even blogged on it!  All you need to do is click on the link below and simply listen and follow the instructions:

This is a snapshot of the blogs that I added…

You can take a snapshot of your blog and send it to me on work@millhillandwoodcroft.co.uk or even just send me a message that you have blogged and I’ll take a look at it!

If you want to follow each day, or look back at other days, then just follow the link below:

Maths
Many of you are huge football fans, I know, and I am sure you are missing being able to watch football matches on the television – I know that Mr Symes and I are really missing all the sport!
So, this week, I’ve set you a Premier League Primary Stars challenge.

The challenge is made up of a series of tasks, which you have to complete, using your maths skills to help you.
Below, you will find the task, some help for your grown-ups (if they want to do it with you, but need a little bit of support with their maths skills!) and the answer sheet.  


NO CHEATING!

DO NOT LOOK AT THE ANSWER SHEET UNTIL YOU HAVE ANSWERED ALL THE QUESTIONS!

 

All you have to do is open the Powerpoint and follow each step...

Remember to send me in photos of your work, so I can add it to the website.  Send them to work@millhillandwoodcroft.co.uk 
Science
This week’s science experiment is a very simple one, but one that you can explore further, if you want to.
You can create your own rainbow – just like the ones we see everywhere, in support of the NHS and other key workers.
All you have to do is follow the simple instructions below…

Now that you’ve made your rainbow, can you explore using different types of paper, or even different types of felt tipped pens?  Do they all make a rainbow in the same way?
Make sure you also read the Science-y-bit, which explains why the rainbows are formed.

As always, make sure you send me in examples of your rainbows!

Topic – History – Ancient Egyptians
This week, we are continuing to look at pyramids and you have another game to play.


 “You are Ahmose, a priest at the temple.  The high priest has died and you must prepare him for his journey to the afterlife by collecting all the objects required to get him there.  Be quick!  You’ve only got until sunrise to find everything that you need…"

Just follow the link below to get started.  (If you are using a Smartphone, the link might not work.  Instead, use the information sheets to create your own pyramid poster, to tell everyone else about what's inside a pyramid...)

https://www.nms.ac.uk/explore-our-collections/games/discover-ancient-egypt/discover-ancient-egypt/three-pyramids/

Once you have played the game, take a look at the fact sheets, which tell you more about the temples and the objects inside them.
Why don’t you create your own fact sheet about one of the pyramids?  Or about the objects you’d find inside it?  Or present your facts in any creative way that you want to?
As ever, I can’t wait to see what super work you do work@millhillandwoodcroft.co.uk 

 
Outdoor Learning
Scavenger hunts are fun and you can do them outside or inside!  Why don’t you see if you can find all the items on these lists?...

Once you’ve done that, why don’t you make up your own scavenger hunt?  You could send it in and we could put it on the website, so other people can try and find the items, too!
