Monday 22nd February 2021
Hello wonderful Woodpeckers-welcome back.
I hope you had a great half-term holiday.
Please see below and the tabs on the left for the timetable, resources, attachments and tutorials you need. I have added extra tutorials for those of you who feel you need more support.
1) Once your work is complete please send me only one piece of work a day.
Some brilliant pieces of work will still be put on our class celebration page.
2) We will now meet at 8:30am Monday-Friday on Teams not zoom. These will start from Tuesday 23rd February. There will be no class call today.
To get on Teams: Open the email I sent on Friday 19th February at 8:27am, at the bottom of the email it says 'Microsoft Teams meeting' underneath it says 'Join on your computer or mobile app' and 'Click here to join the meeting.' If you click this link it will give you the option to 'join with browser or download', then you join with 'browser'.
3) Extra support tutorials every day.
4) In the afternoons, Mrs Mitchell and Miss Fermor have set five tasks for the week-see the video and activities below. These can be completed with siblings or friends (via zoom etc) if you wish.
I am in a training session today from 10am to 12, so might not be able to answer any emails during this time. However, I will get back to you as soon as I can.
If you have any questions please email me on:
Have a lovely day,
Please do the live online Joe Wicks workout (on you-tube) or an exercise of your choice.
L.O: I understand how to convert metric units of length (know: understanding)
1) I understand what metric units of measure are and how they are used
2) I understand how to divide and multiply to convert units of length
3) I understand how to convert from one unit of measure to another unit of length
L.O- To show my understanding of how to convert metric measures in length
SC1- I can multiply and divide by 10 to convert between millimetres and centimetres
SC2- I can multiply and divide by 100 to convert between centimetres and metres
SC3- I can multiply and divide by 1000 to convert between kilometres and metres
Today you are going to convert different metric units of measure, focusing on length
1. Watch the BBC video clip ‘What are metric measurements?’ and complete the quiz.
See the tab on the left.
2. Watch the tutorial ‘Tutorial. Converting metric units of measure-length’
If you need more support watch the second tutorial.
Extra support video: converting m and km
3. Complete one of the three differentiated challenges in the attachment below Maths challenges-Monday 22nd February 2021
The answers are included so please self-mark and let me know how you did.
Extension: To create and film a short tutorial explaining how to convert between different metric units of length. Remember to explain clearly what to do and give modelled examples to your audience.
Challenge within the extension: To also include misconceptions that could arise.
L.O: I can show my understanding of the audience (show: applying)
1) I can explain the purpose of my letter
2) I can include detailed description, measurements and facts
3) I can use scientific and geographical vocabulary
Read/listen to the text ‘Fossil Sea Monster’ and answer the following questions. Reading focus: summarising
a) Find and copy all the words in the first paragraph that show it was a difficult task.
b) Summarise paragraphs 2 and 3 in your own words.
c) Summarise in your own words the challenges they faced in order to excavate the fossil.
d) List examples of scientific vocabulary from the text.

Task: To write a letter to the National Geographic explaining about the new fossil discovery your team and you have made in Antarctica.
Watch the tutorial.
Tutorial 2: Extra support
Challenge 1: To write a letter about the Elasmosaur from the text, using facts taken directly from the text ‘Fossil Sea Monster’ and the video clip.
Challenge 2: To write a letter about a brand new Elasmosaur fossil discovery made in Antarctica by your team and you. To use scientific language and measurements of your choice-keep it realistic.
Challenge 3: To write a letter about a brand new different fossil discovery made (not an Elasmosaur) in Antarctica by your team and you. To use detailed description, scientific language, precise measurements and ‘facts.’ Consider the environment in which it has been found and therefore what it’s fossil will look like and why. To generate your own questions to ask.
Once completed write an evaluative comment linked to the success criteria.
1) To write a reply from the National Geographic, that mentions the points you raised in your letter.
