7. Week Commencing 18th May 2020

Maths - I See Reasoning
Please read the introduction first.
Please see previous weeks for Number and Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, Fractions, Money and Multiplication and Division.
This week the topic are Measurement and . As before, you can choose your own level to challenge yourself; bronze, silver or gold which is the most challenging.
There are also some measurement worksheets as well for you to have a go at.  To help you there is a powerpoint about capacity and a quiz too.
Can you also produce a table in your book to show how much particular foods weigh. Look on the packaging for the net weight in grammes (g).
Also you can have a look at bottles and cans to see the capacity of the container. How much is in a container of milk, orange juice, water for example. Capacity is measured in millilitres (ml) and litres (l).
You can then add these to your table.
Please try and use your Maths notebook to write the answers in, if you say which challenge you are answering and the page number then there is not a need to print the sheets if you prefer not to.
English - Bounce
This week I would like you to write a poem about sports.
Have a look at the examples to help you.  Perhaps you will write a calligram or a list poem.
Remember a calligram is a shape poem.
Reading Comprehensions
There are two comprehensions that are sport related this week:
  • Commonwealth Games
  • UEFA Women's Euro 2017
For each choose either 1* 2** or 3*** text and questions.
The answers are there for you to check your work afterwards too.
Science - How do humans and animals move?
Why are movement and exercise important for humans including animals?

Watch film and documentary clips of animals that bounce, hop, roll, jump and leap. (Links are attached)

Make a list of sorted animals into groups based on how they move.

Can you move like the animals you see and feel which muscles they use? 

Can you describe how the animal moves? Can you move like a frog? A kangaroo? A flea? A horse?’

If you have more time research amazing bouncing and jumping animals using fiction books and the web. For example, red kangaroos are the fastest jumpers (up to 56 km/hr) and fleas are incredible leapers. They can jump 220 times their own body length and 150 times their own body height.
