Happy Friday and welcome to the last blog post for this year! Well done on sticking with us throughout this term and sending in your fantastic pieces of work! You have worked extra hard and deserve the rest during the summer holidays. All your teachers and class helpers at ABC are so, so proud of what you have achieved and we are all looking forward to being together again in September. Next week, ABC is open to welcome you and your parents to meet your teacher and teaching assistant for next year and to find out what will be happening in Term 1 of the new school year.
The timetable for each class is as follows and to ensure safety and social distancing, groups will come in at different times:
9-10 am and 11-12 pm
9.15-10.15 am and 11.15-12.15 pm
9.30-10.30 am and 11.30-12.30 pm
It will be lovely to see you all before the summer. All the staff wish you a very happy, sunny summer and a relaxing break!

THE EAGLE THAT WAS SCARED OF HEIGHTS!
Read through your story. Read it to someone! Think about what parts you could improve: look again at your descriptions and your sentences and speech. Check the order of your story makes sense and that there is a clear beginning, middle and end. Write up your story in your neatest handwriting and illustrate some important parts of the story. Make a cover with the title and your name. You can use bubble writing!
MATH WARM UP
Get on Times Tables Rock stars to practice your 2s, 3s, 4s, and 5s!
As a challenge: 6's, 7's , 8's, 9s , 10s and 12s
Remember: practice makes perfect so even if you know these, keep practising so you don't forget! You could also try Mathletics and choose an area of maths there: this week we're looking at money so see if there's some extra Mathletics practice on money. The four questions today can be copied onto paper by printing or by you copying them. There's also some further arithmetic practice on our weekly SATs paper below but you only need to do 2 or 3 questions a day from this. Let's get our maths head on...
Watch the videos to remind yourself how to set out division answers and to make it easier to solve. Then try the questions below. There are two ways to divide shown here-watch both and decide which is easiest for you!
SCIENCE: BUILD A BUG HABITAT!
All creatures need a little help from us and this a great way you can make sure that the insects like bees have a place to live. Remember food chains? Insects are an important part of the food chain for other larger animals like birds and they are very good for plants-bees help pollinate plants which means that some plants need bees to make seeds to grow more flowers! Imagine a world with no colourful flowers! Thank you bees and all the insects in our gardens and parks, forests and woods! When you’ve made your bug house, check it to see which insects are using it. Make drawings of the insects and label them. How many can you get to stay at your bug hotel? Click the video to see how to make one. Make a few!
GEOGRAPHY: MAP READING! CAN YOU FIND YOUR WAY?
Look at the grid map below and identify the things you see and where they are on the grid. Think about the directions: north, south, east and west, left and right, straight on.
Look at the sentences and read them carefully. Copy them out and fill in the missing information using the positions of the things on the grid map.
Extra: Why not make your own grid map and write some sentences for directions and positions to challenge someone at home?
GEOGRAPHY: ENDANGERED ANIMALS
Last week, we looked at different endangered and extinct animals. This week, choose one animal from those below. Design a poster about the animal, giving facts about where in the world it lives, the type of biome and the country or continent; what it eats and the dangers it faces in its habitat. Suggest some ways we can save the animal from extinction and improve its life in the wild! Choose a different animal from last week. This is an internet research project so make sure an adult is with you and don't forget to search for endangered animals facts for kids-this will give you the websites that have the best information!
Yesterday, we re-wrote the story of How to be a Lion and sequenced the pictures in order. Today, we would like you to have another look at what you wrote and edit your work. Can you change some words for more exciting words? Can you add adjectives? Can you add illustrations and put your writing in the form of a storyboard? There is an example of a storyboard below and also a word mat to help you.
