Week 5

English

This week, I have another brand new, exciting activity for you to complete.  I have found a super website, that helps you write your own stories, allows you to get help writing your story from your friends online (if your parents or carers are happy for you to do this) and then gives you the opportunity to publish them in an email.  You could email your final story to me, using the usual email address: work@millhillandwoodcroft.co.uk

 

The website is called Fabled - the link is at the bottom of this section, as you need to know what to do, before you enter the website.

 

So, let's get started!  

 

When you log in to the website, you will be asked to sign up.  Please do this and then your grown up can also create an account, which means that you will be able to work on your story collaboratively with your friends and eventually email your story to me.

Once you have logged on, you simply follow the onscreen prompts to create your story.

You can save your story as you write it, edit it, add to it, remove parts of it - just as you would do with any story.

Go on, get creative!  Your story can be about anything that you want...

Maths

Another Premier League challenge for you this week – this time it’s all about Data Handling.  Start by clicking on the title below, to watch the video

Using Data in Football


If you have a printer, you can print out the activities, but you don’t have to.  All you need to have is a pencil, paper and a ruler.  Just click on the first activity below – either to print it out, or do it from the screen.

Activity 1
Can you read the information in the bar charts and answer the questions?
•    Quiz  A – From the screen – the answers are on the final slide.  Write your answers down and no peeking at the answers until you’ve finished!

•    Quiz B – To print, if you are able to.  The answers are on the last sheet, so don’t look until you’ve finished!

Activity 2
You now need to use you data collection skills, to record the data in a table and then transfer it into a bar chart.  There are 3 skill levels – Level 1 is the easiest and Level 3 is the most difficult.  You can do more than one level if you want to.  Once you have finished the challenge, you can look at the answer sheet – but no cheating!!

Activity 3
This final challenge needs you to put your skills in practise and get the whole family involved.  Will you take up the challenge?

 
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
Start by reading the comic strip story below.  Once you’ve read it, look at the challenge that follows…
 

Selenia and the Victorian Adventure

Picture 1

Dakai is scared of heights.  Perhaps having a parachute would make him feel safer?  What do you need to think about when creating a parachute?  What could you test?
•    The shape of the parachute (rectangles, squares, circles)
•    The size (small or large)
•    Materials used for the parachute (plastic carrier bag, fabric, paper etc.)
•    Materials used for the parachute threads (string, wool, sewing cotton etc.)

So, can you create a simple parachute that carry a small weight? – you could use a lego toy, or other small item.  It doesn’t have to be a huge parachute, but it has GOT to slow down the rate at which the object falls.

Picture 1

I can’t wait to see what you make.  Please do send in a photo of your parachute and, if you can, perhaps a short video clip of the parachute in use.

Send them in to work@millhillandwoodcroft.co.uk 

Topic – History – Ancient Egyptians
Last week you played a game about pyramids and this week you’re going to make your own paper pyramid.  You can make it out of a sheet of A4 paper, by following the simple instructions on the video below.
 

How to make Paper Pyramid

Once you’ve made it, why don’t you decorate it with hieroglyphics or other patterns?  You could try to make a pyramid of a different size, or make one out of different paper.  Get creative! 

Remember to send in a photo of your finished pyramids!

Outdoor Learning
As we are slowly having more opportunities to get out and exercise more, I have a challenge for you to complete, whilst you are outside.  On your daily walk, see if you can identify something that you can see, smell or hear that begins with each letter of the alphabet.  For example, you might see a butterfly for ‘B’, hear a dog (barking) for ‘D’ or smell flowers for ‘F’.  
 
Picture 1

You might need to complete the alphabet over several walks and then you can decide how to present what you have done.  You could simply write each letter next to what you found, or you could draw it… you could split it up into different sections, for what you could see, smell or hear… the choice is yours.  As long as you have 26 items recorded, how you do it, doesn’t matter!
 

Send in your finished alphabet challenge to work@millhillandwoodcroft.co.uk 
 

Finally, don’t forget to check out these other pages on the website:

  • Video Resource Centre – lots of fun things to look at and listen to, including the story of “Andie’s Moon”, which I am reading to you, a chapter at a time
  • Music Activities for Families – there are lots of singing activities on this page.
    • Join in with a virtual singing assembly
    • Sing along to a variety of songs that you know
    • Take part in Young Voices at Home – Sing “Power in Me” with children across the world, on 2nd June

 

Hope to see lots of work coming in from you all…
