Westonzoyland Primary School ‘Achieving, Learning and Growing Together’

Monday

Monday 27th April

 

Good morning Kestrels! This week we will following the same format as last week, so in English Monday is Spelling day! We are still in the 'measuring' area of maths this week but have moved from time to capacity. This is a great excuse to get lots of water and measuring jugs out! 

English: Spelling

For your task today, I would like you to practice your spellings and write a sentence for each one.

Choose a level of task based upon how much you want to challenge yourself:

 

Level 1: Your task is to write a sentence for each spelling in your neatest handwriting in your book supplied by school.

Level 2: Write a sentence for each spelling using the conjunctions: and, but, so to extend your sentences.

Level 3: Write a sentence for each spelling using the conjunctions when, if, that or because.

Maths: Reading Scales

 

 

Start your lesson by watching this introduction video - Do not worry about half numbers or 0.5 as we do not need to know them until we are older.

Reading Scales

How to read scales using measuring scales and weighing scales.

Now finish these sentences:

 

 

Can you work out how many ml each jug contains? Watch out, the scale's aren't the same on each one. 

 

Why not get a jug and see if you can fill it to the same level. Does yours look different or the same? 

 

 

Science

Can we make a rainbow at home?

Yes, you can! With this How to Grow a Rainbow Experiment Science Activity, you can make your own rainbow with just some felt-tip pens, two bowls of water and a bow-shaped piece of kitchen roll.
