I hope everyone has had a good weekend. We've been playing a brilliant board game called The Really Nasty Horse Racing Game. I never realised what a bunch of devious liars I live with. Zeno, Vashti and Lara were all very cunning - they would bet on other people's horses and then deliberately make their own horse lose. There ought to be a rule against that sort of thing!
You've got 6 Khan Academy activities assigned to you for Maths this morning, English is some reading comprehension questions about chapter 4 of TFMD and your third activity is an online French lesson. Good luck and have a fun day.
You did some fantastic Chinese calligraphy yesterday. I've put in a slideshow below.
Maths is an outdoor activity today. Watch the video below to see me have a go at it - don't worry if you don't get an opportunity to do it today; you may get chance over the weekend. You have to find something too tall to reach and measure its height using a mathematical idea. In English, we're finishing Chapter 3 of TFMD and creating an advert for a restaurant! Finally, our Science lesson today is learning about the biology of the ear.
The birds of Faversham are dining well tonight! Well done for all the amazing bird kebabs you made yesterday! Ingrid also cooked the most impressive thing you will ever see crafted from pizza dough (see below). Oliver has uploaded his bat and ball game to Scratch, and you can play it here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/475971205/
And it's the final episode of Von Doogan and the Deadly Diamond's of Doom today! We'll start a new Von Doogan adventure next week.
Today, we are doing some more converting units of length, but I've also given you a factors maze if you'd like a fun challenge. In English, we are learning about sentences and phrases and in Topic we are having a go at some Chinese calligraphy. Have a great day!
I read lots of fantastic pirate descriptions yesterday. Thank you to everyone that sent them in. There were also some very cool Bat and Ball games - Sebbie's was like one of those old Nintendo Game and Watch handhelds because it even told the time!
Today, we are converting units of length in Maths, we're reading the first part of Chapter 3 of The Firework Maker's Daughter and later we are going to try feeding some birds! Have a lovely day and send me photos of any birds you entice to your food!
There were some amazing drawings of pirates yesterday and it was really fun to see all your creations. We are using those today, to do a character description of your pirate. We are converting units of length in Maths and there is Scratch lesson later in which we will try to improve our games from last week. Have a fun day and I'd love to see any of your work if you can email it to me.
Welcome back! I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend. We have some arithmetic practice in Maths and a logic puzzle about cube numbers if you want a challenge. We are drawing pirates and coming up with some descriptive words and phrases in English. For our Topic lesson, I'd like you to watch some videos of children describing a day in their lives in China and try to compare their experience to your own.
I've read some excellent scripts that people have sent in and I'm really looking forward to seeing some more. We have had two late submissions in the worm hunting photo collection from Dotti and Frank. Dotti's is very cute and the smallest we've had, whilst Frank's is even bigger than Henry's!! I forgot to put up a new Mathematical Murder Mystery on Monday, so I've put one up now for the weekend and I'll try to remember to put another one up next week!
We all had a go at making some 3d shapes out of lengths of dowelling and elastic bands. We found out that the triangles were a lot more stable than the squares, and we were able to make our cubes much stronger by adding diagonal supports. When we had built out cubes, with diagonal supports, we discovered tetrahedrons inside our cubes!
