Week 4 - 22/06/20

Hello everyone,

I hope you are well and are managing to keep busy!

This week is week 4 of our Ancient Greek topic, where is the time going? For our writing we will looking at Greek myths and legends, which I think you will really enjoy. I want you to be very creative using lots of figurative language! Also it would be lovely to see some of your Myths, remember you can email these in for me to look at.

In maths you will be doing lessons 10-15 on Oak Academy (Hopefully you are finding the videos useful), the lessons will continue with the theme of measurement, however for those of you that prefer working away from a  computer I have also uploaded some math worksheets for you to print out or collect from school.

We will be continuing to read Stig of the dump, this week will be chapter 2. I have uploaded some questions and suggested which activities you should do, however you can choose any of the activities I have uploaded.

Your topic is learning all about the Olympics and how this began in Ancient Greece, this is one of my favourite topics in the Greeks. Next week you writing will be based on this topic so try to remember as much as possible to help you.

In science we will be continuing to look at teeth and you will be practicing the same spelling rule as last week.

As always this is recommended learning and if you’d like to alter anything to be more creative that’s fine.

Missing you all loads!
