English Activities
This weeks English activities can be found on the 'Literacy Week 5' tab. I have outlined activities over a 5 day period - however, please amend this to suit your home learning timetable. By the end of the week, children should have worked towards creating a poem based on the book The Day The Crayons Quit. 
 
Maths Activities
This weeks Maths activities can be found on the 'Maths Week 5' tab. Included are 5 day's worth of lessons with independent learning activities. The slides follow the same format used at school, with additional answer slides included after each question. I have used the same independent activity format that is used at school - green, orange and red (with red being the most challenging). Children may choose to work through the questions for one colour challenge, or to deepen their understanding, may choose to solve all questions for each colour challenge. 
 
Daily Calculations
These will continue to be uploaded each week. 
 
Maths Challenge
Every 2 weeks there will be extra maths activities set by Miss Angell for KS1 & KS2 to access and complete. These activities will include a range of different mathematical areas. Have a go at completing a couple each week and have fun!
 
Project Menu
This week the children's project menu has activities related to VE Day. I have also uploaded some resources that will support this learning.

Project Menu
The project menu will now be adapted from my planning for the summer term. Each week will consist of similar activities to those children would have been completing if at school

This week it is National Numeracy Day (Thursday 13th May 2020)

National Numeracy Day is all about recognising that numbers play a big part in all our lives and helping us improve our skills and build our confidence.

We have decided to celebrate National Numeracy Day over the week by having a grid of exciting Maths activities to complete throughout the week instead of our usual weekly maths PowerPoint. We had planned a maths week in school, which would have involved practical, interactive maths activities for the week and do not want the children to miss out on this completely!

We want you to have fun completing one or two activities during your maths time each day. Children can do these activities independently or with family members.

I have uploaded a grid for EYFS, KS1 & KS2 for you to work through this week. I have also added some more activities from the National Numeracy Day website for you to have a look at.

It would be lovely to see what you have been up to, to celebrate National Numeracy Day, so please send us pictures of your maths fun and Mrs Talbot will collate these into a dedicated 'Maths Good News' at the end of the week.

Enjoy!
