Maths:

  1. Work through the first half (up to slide 8) of the ‘Translation’ powerpoint (see below) reading the information carefully, making notes/jotting down important information in a spider diagram or mind map.
  2. Now have a go at completing the first 3 questions on the ‘Translating Coordinate Shapes’ activity sheet (see separate PDF) by choosing your challenge level – one star (paddling), two stars (snorkelling) or three stars (diving). Remember that you don’t have to print off the sheet. You can just write your answers on a sheet of paper. If you are finding it tricky to draw out the quadrants there is some squared paper below that you could print off or trace from the screen.
  3. Now return to the ‘Translation’ powerpoint (see below) and work through slides 9-end reading the information carefully, adding notes/jotting down important information to your spider diagram or mind map.
  4. Now have a go at completing the second 3 questions on the ‘Translating Coordinate Shapes’ activity sheet (see separate PDF) by choosing your challenge level – one star (paddling), two stars (snorkelling) or three stars (diving). You don’t have to choose the same challenge level as you did for the first 3 questions. Remember that you don’t have to print off the sheet. You can just write your answers on a sheet of paper.

Science – Fossils as Evidence of Evolution

1. Log in to Developing Experts and get a paper and pen so you can make notes on anything important.

2. Click on Lesson 3 “Recognise that fossils help us understand how living things change over time”.

3. Scroll down and watch the Mission Assignment film. Watch it more than once if you need to and make notes if it helps your learning.

4. Download the Handout. There is a Powerpoint version and a PDF version so you can use either of these. You do not need to print these unless you wish to because you could read the information on the screen and answer on paper. Read the information and answer the questions. All of the answers are in the text.

5. Go back on to Developing Experts and complete the Assessment Quiz.

6. To finish, highlight any of your new learning on the Science Knowledge Organiser that you downloaded from Twinkl last week (there is also a link to it below).

Maths:

  1. Log on to the MyMaths website (link below) and login to ‘My portal’ using your personal login information. Under the homework tab load the ‘Reflecting shapes’ homework. Please work through the lesson slides first, using the numbers in circles at the side of the screen. Don’t forget to click on ‘Next’ in the bottom right of the screen to make sure you access all of the slides. Make sure you read the information carefully and let it sink in before moving on. You could jot down important information in a spider diagram or mind map.
  2. on slide 5 and 7 it asks you to ‘Copy this grid and draw these reflections’. You have several options here to help you complete these slides:

-You could carefully copy the entire grid onto paper from home.

-You could print off the activity sheet (see word document below).

-If you are good at visualising you could trace your finger over the screen where you think the reflected shapes should be.

-You could stick little blobs of blue tac on the screen to mark the vertices of the reflected shapes. PLEASE CHECK WITH AN ADULT BEFORE DOING THIS!

  1. Then complete the homework task linked to this lesson. If you achieve a green score first time fantastic. If not have a little break then maybe have another look over the lesson slides and reattempt the homework task.
  2. Optional extra: log on to the Education City website using the login sent to your parent/carer’s email address. Click on Classwork, ‘Week 3 Geometry’ and then the ‘Double Reflection’ ThinkIts activity. Consider the question and either discuss with an adult or write your answer down on paper (unfortunately the activity isn’t interactive-you can’t answer on the screen). Check your answers by clicking on the ‘Answer’ tab.

Art-Fossil Art/Mindfulness

Draw a basic spiral fossil shape like the pictures of ammonites shown below. Divide it into sections like you can see in the picture. Colour each section in a different colour (or a different shade or tone or pattern if you would prefer a pencil drawing) to create a unique picture.

The purpose of this activity is to practise relaxation and mindfulness – it is designed to be a chill-out task, and will not be assessed or judged in any way – there is no right or wrong! Complete the task in your own unique way.

Finished fossil art would look lovely in the portfolio section of class dojo, so please upload a picture if you are able to.

A model of what the head of the ammonite would have looked like. The body is safely inside the shell, and the shell is the part that we find today in fossil form.

Maths:

  1. Work through the ‘Reasoning-Translation and Reflection’ powerpoint (see below). The slides for Question 1a and 2a guide you through solving the questions (a bit like when we shared solve questions at school). Then Question 1b and 2b are for you to solve on your own, using what you’ve learnt from the previous slides. Click slowly through the slides and make sure you understand/are following the steps before moving on. All answers are within the powerpoint so you can mark your work as you go.
  2. Complete the ‘Independent Transformation Reasoning ’ questions on the activity sheet (Word document below) by choosing your challenge level – one star (paddling), two stars (snorkelling) or three stars (diving). You can either print the challenges or write your answers on paper.

Handwriting: Developing a joined handwriting style in preparation for high school – you will need lined paper for this task.

  1. Copy out the “What are Ammonites?” passage in your best joined handwriting style (this is the passage below step 3). This will be the handwriting style that you develop and utilise at high school. Remember to stretch ascenders to the top, descenders below the line and all letters sit on the line.
  2. Assess your work.

1 point = writing is joined

2 points = writing is joined and ascenders touch the top

3 points = writing is joined, ascenders touch the top and descenders go below the line

4 points = writing is joined, ascenders touch the top, descenders go below the line and all letters sit on the line.

 

  1. If you are able, post the handwriting to the portfolio section of class dojo so your teachers can give you some feedback/next steps.

What are Ammonites?

Ammonites are a group of extinct marine animals whose shells have been fossilised. Ammonites are an instantly recognisable fossil type because of the distinctive spiral shape. Scientists think that ammonites lived from 400 million years ago until 65 million years ago when they became extinct.

Their closest living relatives today are the octopus, the squid and the cuttlefish. You can find ammonites on various beaches throughout the world today and they vary in size from fossils that are no bigger than your thumbnail to fossils weighing over a ton that are taller than a man!

Maths:

  1. Log on to the Education City website using the login sent to your parent/carer’s email address. Click on Classwork, ‘Week 3 Geometry’ and then the ‘Time to reflect’ activity. Work through the questions, answering on the screen and using all that you’ve learnt this week.
  2. Log on to the MyMaths website (link below) and login to ‘My portal’ using your personal login information. Under the homework tab load the ‘Arithmetic assessment 1’ task and work through the questions. Remember that although you cannot use a calculator you can jot down any working out you need to do using a pen and paper. If you achieve a green score first time fantastic. If not have a little break then maybe have another try later or on another day.
