Hello Everyone!

Welcome back! I hope you have all been safe in the sun and had lots of fun in your week off. We are now moving on to week 6 of our learning on Oak National Academy.


In maths this week you are starting a new unit, which is called Measure: Capacity and Volume. You will learn how to read the temperature on thermometers, estimate and measure in litres, solve word problems that involve metres, use millilitres and compare millilitres and litres using fractions.

Below is a link to a song, Professor Pipette explains measurements used to calculate capacity and volume.


In English this week you will continue to look at The Firework-Maker’s Daughter by Philip Pullman. This week you will focus on retrieving information from the text, identifying syllables in words and sentences and have a go at writing your own haiku. I cannot wait to see your fantastic poems!


This week, there is a new addition of PSHE lessons. You will look at how you can stay clean and healthy and make a sign that can be used to promote good handwashing.


This week in RE, you will learn about the key features of a synagogue, and what a common Jewish service looks like. You will also learn all about the Torah, the Holy Text of Judaism.


In PE this week, there are daily PE lessons with Joe, make sure that you take a look at this and get yourself moving!


This week in science, you will continue to learn about shadows. In this lesson, you will be learning how you can change the size of a shadow. You’ll have a go at creating your own shadow puppet theatre. You will need a pencil, a piece of paper, and if you’ve got them some cardboard, a pair of scissors and glue stick. You must ask for the help of an adult when using your scissors.


This week in Spanish you will recap your previous learning and then move onto learning how to say different colours in Spanish.


In art this week, you will be making a terrarium. A terrarium is like an aquarium, but for plants instead of fish. Do not worry if you do not have the items at home that the video suggests. You could draw a picture of a terrarium or draw the plants for inside it. I know how creative you all are!


Remember it is important to keep reading at home, you can use these links below.

Please keep all of the work that you have completed and take photographs where you can. I cannot wait to see all the fantastic things you have created whilst at home!

You can also use any of the links posted below to support your learning and keep you busy.

See you soon,

Miss Frodsham
