Week commencing 13-7-20

Hi, this is the last week of distance learning before we break up for the summer holidays.  To try and help you move towards Google Classroom to complete your tasks, I have only put 5 things here.  The remaining 3 tasks are on Google Classroom.  Please make sure you have a go and complete them.


Task 1

For the last 2 weeks I've issued times table challenges.  I'm sticking with that theme here and asking you to find out which number has the biggest number of factors.  Do you remember what factors are?  They are often (but not always) found in pairs and when multiplied together form a multiple.  Below is an example of a factor tree for the number 60.  I'd like you to create a list of numbers that have loads of factors.  One number has 32 factors (16 pairs).  Can you explore which number it is?

Task 2

Spelling Wordsearch.  Here's a new list of words for you to learn.  Your new spelling lists are on Google Classroom this time so it's probably better to start there before doing this task.  Choose the wordsearch that matches your spelling group and complete.  Simple.

Task 3

Use this link to learn about perspective when drawing.  Once children have viewed the clip, they could create their own perspective drawing. Initially, it could be useful to use an image or photograph very similar to the one in the clip. Thereafter, children could draw a perspective scene using an image or photograph of choice.


Task 4

Following on from last weeks' area and perimeter work, I'd like to make things more challenging.  Lots of you struggled to find the perimeter of the triangles in the Google task last week but how do you calculate the are of triangles.  It's actually quite easy...use the formula 1/2b x h.  That means half of the base times the height of the triangle.  Have a go at these.

Task 5

We all want to be successful. But what is success? Too many times, we measure it by a person's wealth or status. We often use those markers to determine whether or not we have been successful in life. Basing it on that criteria alone means that a lot of people will never meet the world's definition of "success."

Success is attaining a purpose or goal you have set out to accomplish.  The Rudyard Kipling poem below is largely about meeting your goals.  With year 6 looming large, I'd like you to write your own poem about success and what you hope to achieve by the end of year 6.  It can be in any format you like; acrostic, limerick, cinquain or free verse.  Email them to me through Google Classroom when you're done.  I'd love to read them!




If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!
