Good Morning Cromer Class

Only 2 days left of term until the Summer Holidays!

Literacy

This week you are going to write an acrostic poem.

Monday:

Gather ideas for an acrostic poem titled, “My Future”.

Think of a word for each letter.

For Example:

m= my, maybe, music, maths, Monday, mouse

Y= year, your, yes, yesterday, yellow

F = fun, family, February, fox

U = utopia, unless, universal

Etc.

Tuesday:

Write your acrostic poem. Remember each line of the poem begins with the letters of the words “My Future”. Each line could be one word or a phrase.

For Examples:

My dream job is teaching

You will see me in my class.

 

Family will mean a lot to me.

USA is somewhere I used to live.

Etc.

 

Bonus Literacy

Just in case you would like a little extra work.  Here is some bonus literacy: link bonus literacy here. Bonus literacy

 

Mathematics

More maths investigations if you have finished your Power Maths Book.

Monday:

Maths Investigation 1:  Curious Number

Can you order the digits 1, 2 and 3 to make a number which is divisible by 3?
And when the final digit is removed again it becomes a two-digit number divisible by 2,
then finally a one-digit number divisible by 1?

Can you order the digits 1, 2, 3 and 4 to make a number which is divisible by 4?
And when the final digit is removed it becomes a three-digit number which is divisible by 3.
And when the final digit is removed again it becomes a two-digit number divisible by 2,
then finally a one-digit number divisible by 1?

Can you order the digits 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 to make a number which is divisible by 5?
And when the final digit is removed it becomes a four-digit number which is divisible by 4.
And when the final digit is removed it becomes a three-digit number which is divisible by 3.
And when the final digit is removed again it becomes a two-digit number divisible by 2,
then finally a one-digit number divisible by 1?

 

Tuesday:

Maths Investigation 2: Button Up Some More

I have a jacket which has four buttons.
Sometimes, I do the buttons up starting with the top button. Sometimes, I start somewhere else.
How many different ways of buttoning it up can you find?

Look back at the number of different ways you found for buttoning up three buttons and four buttons.
Can you predict the number of ways of buttoning up a coat with five buttons?
Six buttons …?

 

Hint: for both investigations be systematic and perhaps use a table!

Bonus Mathematics:

Why wouldn’t you want extra maths?

Mini project –The Island

We did activities 1-5 last week, if you haven’t done them, please check back to last week’s blog.

Activity 6

For this activity you are going to Write a short description of your island, encouraging people to come and visit it.

Why would tourists want to visit?

What unique features does it have?

What sights could they see?

What activities could they do?

 

For example:

In addition to its historic buildings, splendid waterfront and handsome parks, the town has an extensive pedestrianised shopping area containing a modern shopping centre, plus many streets of traditional shops and ample parking facilities. There is also a good choice of restaurants, cafés and bars, plus many traditional and historic pubs. The Town’s historic markets are still held in the ‘Tuesday Market Place’ and ‘Saturday Market Place’ on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

 

Activity 7

Invent an animal to live in the habitat you described last week. Draw and describe your animal. Think about the characteristics that make it suitable to live in that habitat. For example, fur/hair, large/small, live young or eggs, colours, diet, special features, etc

Here are some animal ideas!

 

Education City:

There is still lots of activities that you can do on Education City throughout the summer holidays – enjoy!

Staying Physically Active:

The HLG has some ideas, or you could do Joe Wicks or some yoga.

 

Staying Mentally Active

Again, the HLG has some ideas, but if you fancy something different have a go at:

Reading a book

Listening to a book (audible)

Do some mindful colouring – here is a link to a bumper pack of mindful colouring: MIndful colouring

 

Have a great summer and if you’re in Year 6, I wish you the best of luck for Year 7 (and beyond).  If you’re in Year 5, I look forward to seeing you in September.

Take Care & Stay Safe!
