Summer 2, Week 2

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well! It was lovely speaking to many of you last week. Some of you have done some fantastic learning to start out Greek topic, thank you to those of you that have sent in your work, as always it was lovely to see it!

I know a few of you may be struggling to motivate yourself to learn at home, but remember it’s important to keep yourself busy and keep learning to help prepare yourself for year 5.

This week or enquiring question is ‘Who were the Greek gods?’ So your mission in topic is to try and find as much out about them as possible. I have uploaded a powerpoint and some worksheets to help you research.

Following on from this in writing we will be developing our creative skills by looking at character descriptions based on the Greek gods. By the end of the week you should have a lovely piece of descriptive writing describing a Greek god of your choice. This will then help us in the upcoming weeks when writing your own Greek Myth.

In maths we will be looking on area and perimeter. To do this we will be using the website Oak National Academy. This website will go through each lesson with you, which will include a starter, teach, worksheets and plenary. I hope you enjoy! For those of you that prefer printed worksheets attached are further resources.

In reading we will be continuing to read the man who bought a mountain. The book is attached again and there is also a link to youtube to have to book read to you if you’re struggling.

In science we will be analysing the digestive system functions and as always your spellings are attached. Have a good week and I hope to see you all soon!
