Hello all, today is a Strong Red sort of day.
On This Day - John Constable, the English painter that we have looked at, sadly died in in 1837 at the age of 61. He is best known for his paintings of the Suffolk countryside such as Dedham and The Hay Wain. In 1930, Scottish engineer John Logie Baird installed a TV set at 10 Downing Street.
Thank you so much for your emails and especially for the pictures of what you have been up and some of your project work. Perhaps today would be a good day to create a picture in the style of John Constable. Also, don't forget that if you get stuck on MyMaths or your project, you can email and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Year 6, please have a look at the document below for the answers to the next comprehension - page 18, The Lord of the Rings. Year 5, please choose your favourite of Jalal's skills and draw me an annotated picture showing how you would use it and then send it to me.
After lunch I will start putting next weeks MyMaths up for you. As I have said before, please have more than one try especially after I have given feedback, don't forget to "check out" so that I can give you that feedback and if you get really stuck email me and I will help.
Have a great afternoon, even though it is still a bit chilly when the clouds come over, it is a lovely day for a walk.
Year 6 comprehension answers - The Lord of the Ring
Morning Elm Class, today the colour is Strong Blue.
On This Day - Vincent Willem van Gogh, the Dutch post-impressionist painter, was born in 1853. He is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. His artworks include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and perhaps his most famous paintings are the “Sunflowers” series, one of which sold at auction by Christie’s for £24,750,000 on his birthday in 1987.
Well done to everyone who has attempted tasks on MyMaths. Don't forget that you must "check out" to complete the task and then I will give you feedback. Also please have more than one attempt, aiming to get a score of 100%, ask for help if you are stuck. Although these tasks will stay available to you I won't look back to add feedback to them after Wednesday this week unless you ask me to and I will set you some new tasks tomorrow. Also for Year 6 I will post the answers to the next comprehension - The Lord of the Rings.
Please email me pictures or documents of work that you have done so far for your project and anything else that might be interesting to go on our class page.
Hope you are all looking after your grown-ups and I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Have you ever met an Eaglion - well watch out for it if you visit Aden's Island of Freak Boom
Rose Island looks like a fantastic place to relax, well done Fae
Today's colour is amethyst.
Well after some false starts with the email address for the class, I think we have it sorted and Scarlett has sent some amazing photos of what she has been up to. I have caught up with everybody's MyMaths (up to lunchtime today) but I can only give feedback if you have completed and checked out of the activity - I can see some of you have had a go but haven't done this. Also you can have multiple attempts as many questions will change, so keep going until you are getting it. Any problems, email me and I will try and sort them out.
Now off for my "once a day exercise"
Lovely banners to say thank you made by Scarlett, Aston and Blake
Morning Elm Class, today I am going with strong cyan.
Well done to all of you who have already had a go at this weeks MyMaths. I have given feedback to those that have completed tasks but you must log out of the task for it to save so that I can give feedback. Also I can only see your scores, not your actual work at the moment so the feedback gives suggestions to what may have been the tricky bit. Don't forget that you can attempt each task more than once and that many will change every time you have a go at it.
Year 6, please make sure that you have a go at your next reading comprehension and I will post the answers next week. For those that didn't have this book, please make sure you read your reading book.
Year 5, please work towards finishing Vajak Paw and I will give you some tasks to go with it next week. For those that didn't have this book, please make sure you read your reading book.
Have a good afternoon.
Hello all, today I have chosen the colour Pumpkin for my message.
Well done to everyone who has made a good start on their Treasure Island project and also to those of you who have looked back at your MyMaths.
Today I have added some new tasks to your lists and although you don't all have the same ones, you should all find a mixture of "Properties of Shape" and "Ratio and Probability". It was good to see some of you already having a go at these while I was still setting the tasks, and I have left feedback for the tasks that you had completed. For everyone else I will add feedback each day as far as possible. Don't forget that you can have more than one attempt at each task so have another go if you didn't get it right the first time. Also you can go back to previous set tasks whenever you like, so if there was something you were unsure about, try it again.
Year 6 PLEASE try to make your way through the grammar sheets - they will help you next year even though you don't need it for SATs at the moment.
