Weekly Learning Challenges
Feel free to send anything you have done to email@example.com
Although there are plenty of activities, you do not have to do them all. Do as much or as little as you like and have a go at whichever ones appeal to you the most.
It would be great to hear what you have been up to and see what you have been working on.
Here are some challenges to have a go at this week:
Have a go at these Maths challenges this week.
Have a go at the work for Summer Term Week 4 which looks at multiplying and dividing fractions (remember KFC!), as well as fractions of amounts.

5 quick fire mental arithmetic questions per day. The answers are included to help you check how you did too.
English Challenge: Story Writing
Your challenge this week is to watch the fantastic animated short story below and then re-write the story in your own words.
You can re-write the story exactly as it happens, presenting it in your own way, or you can use the short film as a jumping off point and create your own story inspired by this one. The choice is yours.
There is a lot you can consider when re-writing this story:
-How will you create a detailed description?
-How will you convey a sense of action?
-How will you effectively use speech to move the story along?
Try including some of the following skills in your writing:
Expanded noun phrases with prepositions
Ambitious adjectives and verbs
Figurative language (simile, metaphor etc.)
Project Work: Evolution
This week: The Galapagos Islands
This week we will be focusing more on the Galapagos Islands: the islands where Charles Darwin first made the key observations that then went on to help him create his theory of evolution.
Your Task (geography):
Research the collection of small islands that make up the Galapagos Isles. Find where it is on a map, find out about various features of the islands such as climate, geographical features and what can be found there.
Present your research in one of 2 ways:
-See if you can create a power point, using one slide for each island. Include its name, a picture and facts specific to each island.
-Create a brochure explaining all about the Islands, explaining what you might experience if you were to travel there.
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the focus this year is being kind, to others but also yourself. I can fully understand that it must be difficult for you being cooped up at home, not seeing your friends, so I have found two games you could play - via technology - to hopefully make you smile. Have a go and see how many laughs you get.
On 8th June we celebrate World Ocean Day, looking at how to care for and preserve the oceans of the world.
Hello Eagles, I hope you are all well and staying safe.
I have a task for you if you wish to have a go.
I would like you to compare two world faiths looking at where, how, they worship. What is their basic belief, what symbol or symbols do they use and what is their sacred text.
You can either put the information into a table or write sub-headings for each section.
Send your completed task to Mr Brown or myself.
