Maple Class

Maple Class home learning for Friday 22nd May 2020

Spellings – just add a ‘y’ to words ending in two consonants to form describing words (like dirt=dirty, health=healthy). Try these words, and put into sentences:

Rock, wealth, chill, filth, smart, fuss

English – today is about using commas in lists. Can you write a list of your favourite foods, using a comma between each one? Remember to change the comma (,) to ‘and’ before the last item in your list. 

Maths – today visit Purple Mash – Mathematics – topics – geometry/shape – activities – position and direction – activities – coordinates. Play the coordinates games and test your knowledge. Remember to use the number along the bottom first, then the number at the side. 

Theme – this week you will be in charge of your own learning about Japan. Below are some suggestions, but feel free to come up with your own ideas:

  • Did you write some questions about things you wanted to know about Japan in week 1? Have you answered them? If not, complete some research to find out. 
  • Research what animals are native to Japan. Have you seen any of them before? Draw and label some pictures. 
  • Make a presentation of everything you’ve learnt about Japan. It could be in the form of a poster, leaflet or you could tell someone else all you know. Maybe write a letter to a friend or family member to tell them, or make a call, FaceTime, Skype. 
  • Karaoke originated in Japan – why not hold a karaoke party with your family and sing along to your favourite songs. 
  • Write your own quiz about Japan.
  • Compare living in Japan to living in England. What would be the same? What would be different? 
  • Would you like to visit Japan. Tell someone else why or why not? 
  • Look at some of the other classes previous suggested activities on Japan – is there a craft activity you would like to try? 

I can’t wait to see how you round up your research and learning on Japan. Please email me or post on the Maple class facebook posts with what you’ve been up to. 

Thank you, Mrs Keeler.
