Tuesday 31st March
LO: To improve my times table recall.
It's time to improve your table knowledge on Times Table Rockstars. Improve your score and amaze your friends. You could even challenge an adult. I bet you could beat them.
LO: To write with a balance of speech and narrative.
LO: To take and record precise measurements related to the weather.
Spring is an exciting season which can see anything from snow, rain or scorching sunshine. What will Spring 2020 be like? Create your own weather diary and make a note of the changing weather.
What to do:
Decide on a location where you are going to record the weather each day like you garden,
yard or front doorstep. Make sure you can get to the same place every day and at the
same time. Record the following each day to create a weather diary.
What is the temperature?
What are the people passing your house wearing? Are they wearing t-shirts, jumpers or coats? If you have a thermometer, hold it out into the air for a minute to see how cold it is. If you haven’t got a thermometer, you can use the temperature on your phone.
How strong is the wind?
Look at any trees or bushes. Are people’s hair blowing in the wind? Check the wind speed on the Met Office website for the wind speed in your area.
What is the direction of the wind?
Pick up a piece of grass or a tiny piece of tissue paper, throw it into the air above your head, which way does it go? Using a compass or a compass on your phone, work out which direction the wind is coming from.
How much rain has fallen?
Using a plastic 2litre bottle, carefully cut the top off ¼ of the way down from the top, invert the top into the bottom of the bottle to make a funnel and add a little water to weigh it down. Mark off one centimetre intervals above the water line to make a gauge to record the rainfall.
Wednesday 1st April
LO: To consolidate my knowledge of factors.
Log onto purple Mash and play Factoroids. Use your table knowledge to smash the blue Factoroids by firing at them. Green Factoroids will not hurt you, but blue Factoroids will destroy you. Try challenge A to get the hang of it and then move onto challenge B and then the ultimate... challenge C. Good luck
LO: To read, edit and improve my writing
Complete your story about your tiny door adventure and then edit and improve. Remember, you can email your teacher a copy. If you don’t want to type your story, take a photo and then email it to us. We can’t wait to read your adventure.
LO: To explain the impact of air resistance and surface area on an object.
Paper aeroplanes are great fun, but they can tell you a lot about the science of air resistance and surface area. Have a look at this:
Select 3 different planes to make and test them out. Which one flies the furthest, the straightest, the fastest, which one hangs in the air the longest? Try and explain why each plane flies in a different way and most importantly HAVE FUN!

LO: To use my understanding of coding to solve problems
Now you have had a go at coding last week, it’s time to move on with your skills. Now we are going to create code for an airport’s air traffic control. You will need to make your own airport. Use design mode to add more planes and runways. Then program the planes to move. As you master the code, you could use design mode to add more planes and runways. Then program the planes to move.
Challenge: You could also try adding collision detection to play a sound when two planes crash.
