Hi,

I hope you are all keeping well and have had a good half term holiday.

Some children will be returning to school on June 1st. For those of you who aren’t returning I will be creating some home learning materials for you to have a look at.

Should you find any of the materials too difficult or too easy for you, then feel free to look at work from other year groups.

If you need any additional information or support you can contact me at c.chiverton@shawburystmarys.co.uk. I’m working with over 100 of you in KS 2 but will do my best to reply to you as soon as possible.

The White Rose Maths materials usually have four lessons spaced over the week. I think this is a great idea as it gives you a chance to look back over any areas you might have found a little tricky and gives you the chance to consolidate your learning. So far, all the materials have been linked to BBC Bitesize. Hopefully, this will continue for the next few weeks.

This week, we are starting to look at Fractions. These are the White Rose video links to help you with your learning. The worksheets are here, if you want to use them.

Lesson 1 – Fractions to percentages 2019

Lesson 2 – Equivalent FDP 2019

Lesson 3 – Order FDP 2019

Lesson 4 – Percentage of an amount (2) 2019

The answers are too large to upload but will be shown at the bottom of this page. No peeking!

With BBC Bitesize, remember to check the date of the day’s lessons as the link above may only work for the lessons on Monday.

Don’t forget to fit in your daily session with Joe Wicks. I love it when his family members turn up on screen.

Keep an eye on your class page as there will be regular updates and different things for you to try.

If there are any problems accessing the materials, please let me know.

Keep smiling,

Mr Chiverton 🙂

Hi,

I hope you are all well.

Today is National Vanilla Pudding Day. I guess it’s American, but that shouldn’t stop you from making a vanilla pudding (if you have the ingredients).

It seems strange to think that it’s half term next week when most of us have been away from school for so long. I hope you all have a good week. For those of you coming back to school after half term, don’t forget to keep an eye on the website for any updates or changes to plans.

BBC Bitesize today looks at creating your own music. As well as found sounds there are some great bits of software on the internet for music making. If you fancy having a go at creating your own digital music then Audacity is great fun. There are some good tutorials on youtube – should you need any help.

Have a good half term and don’t forget too tidy your bedroom!

Keep smiling,

Mr Chiverton 🙂

Hi,

I hope you are all well.

How did you get on with some of the Paris Olympic Sports? A swimming obstacle course sounds interesting.

I know a lot of you will have been playing computer games over the past few weeks. How often do you actually consider what is going on behind the scenes? In today’s BBC Bitesize there is an interesting exercise for you to look at this.

I’m not sure where you are up to with the Whole Rose Maths. Here are the answers for lessons 3 and 4.

Hopefully, you can make the most of the nice weather – it’s due to change tomorrow.

Keep smiling,

Mr Chiverton 🙂

Hi,

By now, you will have see the letter about the reopening of school after half term. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to return until July, but Mr Weaver will be looking after those of you who are coming back.

How did you get on with finding out about Anne Boleyn? If you did manage to carry out some research on her you will have noticed that she had an ‘eventful’ life.

On this day, in 1900, the Olympic Games opened in Paris. There were a number of sports completed for that haven’t appeared again. Maybe, you might like to carry out some research on these sports.

BBC Bitesize has some interesting work on magnets.

Have a good day, and keep smiling.

Yr 6 Home Learning May 19th

Hi,

More lovely weather for us to enjoy today.

I hope you have been working well with the BBC Bitesize materials. Don’t forget that if you are finding the tasks a little tricky then feel free to work on materials from other year groups.

Today’s offering looks at some areas I know a few of you find tricky. Read the materials carefully and see how you get on.

Quiz question for you today: In 1536 Anne Boleyn was executed at the Tower of London. What can you tell me about her?

Have a good day and keep smiling,

Mr Chiverton:)

Answers for session 2 of the White Rose maths are below.

Hi,

I hope you have all had a good weekend.

It’s good to try something new, while you have the chance. I’ve been making pizzas as I got a pizza oven for Christmas. If you haven’t made your own pizzas before, they are so much nicer than shop bought ones.

White Rose Maths resources for Week 5 (w/c 18th May) are linked to the BBC Bitesize maths.

Answers for lesson 1

Mental Health Awareness Week

Hi everyone,

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and this year’s theme is kindness. To help celebrate and recognise the importance of kindness, I thought we could all try to do something kind for someone else each day this week. To help inspire you, I have attached some ideas but please feel free to think of your own acts of kindness.

Always remember:

In a world where you can be anything, be kind" quote #kindness ...
