4. Do the activities on Maths Factor - Abacus Activelearn (children have their username, password and school code in their home school diaries).

5. Use BBC KS2 Bitesize to revise grammar and punctuation, as well as to reinforce our learning in Science where we are learning about reversible and irreversible changes and the properties of materials including transparency and conductivity.

6. Visit Mathsframe.co.uk or Topmarks.co.uk to play some free maths games.

7. Use the words in the front of your reading diary to practise your spellings.

Writing Activities 

To continue the work we have been doing on the Vikings why not complete one of these writing activities.

 

Activity 1

To prevent their towns and villages from being invaded the Anglo Saxons would bribe the Danes into leaving their towns alone and in some cases protecting them from other Viking invaders. The Danegeld was a tax paid to Viking raiders to stop them from attacking. Some people viewed it as protection money. Find out about the Danegeld and write a balanced argument for paying the Danegeld to the Vikings. 

 

Activity 2

Find out about the vicious Vikings and create an information leaflet or poster about these Norsemen.

 

Activity 3

The Vikings believed in various God's including Thor the God of thunder. Find out about these God's and create your own story. You could write the story as a chapter or create your own comic strip. If you create a comic strip remember to apply the onomatopoeia 's we have discussed in SPAG. 

 

Remember you do not have to complete every activity in a short space of time. Choose one and produce a detailed and well thought out piece of writing. If you need to plan it first then do. Remember to apply subordinate and relative clauses, fronted adverbials, powerful vocabulary, varied punctuation including brackets, hyphens and dashes. 

 

Here are some other writing activities you could complete.

Science 

In Science we have been looking at changes in materials and their properties. Here are some suggestions on things you could be exploring while at home. 

 

BBC bitesize offers some brilliant resources to help with learning about these concepts. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/z2pfb9q

 

Activity 1 

Remember when you had to create and then separate your own mixture in science using the methods of sieving and magnetism. Why not create a new mixture using natural materials and try and separate this mixture using the filtering method.  

 

Activity 2

Compare and group together everyday materials based on their properties. 

Find out what these terms mean and try and find items around your home that have at least one of these properties. 

Hardness 

Transparency 

Conductivity 

Insulation 

Magnetism

 

Activity 3 

Learn about the properties of solids, liquids and gases.

I hope you have all had a lovely half term break and are looking forward to our Saxon and Viking topic this half term. Below is our topic web and newsletter to give you an idea about some of the things we will be learning about.

 

Cadbury World! 

Pine class had an amazing time on their trip to Cadbury World last week and represented Bagthorpe brilliantly. We got to learn about the history of Cadbury and the process of making chocolate, whilst also trying lots of chocolate ourselves. Below are just a few photo's from the day smiley.
