An important message from everyone at school.
Welcome to Class 5
Thank you very much to Mrs Jones who has written a funny poem:
Please Note:
As it would 'normally' be the half term holiday w/c 25th May, there won't be a structured daily timetable of National Curriculum based activities for children to do so that they can have a break. Many of you may have your own activities planned but some useful ideas and links are shown below (should you need them):
 Wellbeing  There are now a set of daily activities designed to help pupil wellbeing. It is called 'Wellbeing Wake Up.' Please click on this link.
 Maths  There are lots of problems that you could try on this link. The answers are shown here. Also, you could try BBC Bitesize Challenges.
 Reading  Go on Reading Plus or try some of these comprehensions: Mike Hall Pentecost Earthquakes. You could also read a book and write a review. Can you recommend a good read to your classmates?
 Other activities:
 Can you make up 7 events that you would include in a heptathlon? What would they be? Why not time yourself or see how many of each activity you can do in 3o secs or a minute?
 Can you design a fair ground ride using a construction kit, like Lego?
 Can you select an animal (including insects) that you would find in your garden and sketch a picture of it?
 Can you select a recipe and bake something for your family?
 Can you make a movie featuring one of your pets?
You can of course, complete some of the activities from the previous 2 weeks that you haven't done yet.
Happy Birthday to James (25th May) and Oliver (26th May). We hope you have a great time.
Well done to those children who have posted work on Twitter or emailed. Examples of some of the work are shown below. If you haven't sent anything in yet, please do and get your work published!
Well done to those people who sent in examples of their plastic bottles bowling work. I liked them all, especially the comment at the end on this one....
Well done to Beth, who sent in the following film about a street artist. Watch it and be amazed!!!
Well done to the following children who are on our class leader board for 'Reading Plus' after last week (most words read): Kira, Alice L, Emily J, Lottie and Cerys. Also, well done to Poppy, Oliver, Chloe, Will, Alice L, Alice M, Connie, Cerys, Liberty, Lottie, Emily J, Emily S, Harry, Charlie T, Tobey, Cameron and Kira who have received awards from 'Reading Plus.'
Home learning
Below is work for children who are home learning due to the Coronavirus. This will be updated regularly by Mr Macklam. He can be contacted on k.macklam@carltonminiottacademy.org.
Nearly every child is now using 'Reading Plus' in Class 5. This is a brilliant improvement!
Remember to use it for 30 mins each day. It is really important that Reading remains a priority during this time away from school.

Maths
Early Bird  Children should use their Maths book and complete the questions on the Early Bird Maths link (estimate the area of irregular shapes). Remember to add up the complete squares first.

Friday 15th May
Maths
Early Bird  Children should use their Maths book and complete the questions on the Early Bird Maths link (multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000)
Main Focus  WALT Revising adding fractions contd.
Click on the My Maths link from yesterday to look at how to add fractions. Then do the worksheet. As always, do as many questions as you can  some are harder than others! Then mark your work using the answers.
Top Tip: Remember, when you are adding or subtracting fractions, you only need to do the calculation to the numerator; the denominator stays the same. If the denominators are different, multiply the smaller one to make it the same as the larger one or, if this can't be done, change them both so that you have a common denominator. For example, if the calculation is 1/3 + 2/5, change the denominators to fifteenths (common denominator) by multiplying 3 x 5 = 15 and 5 x 3 = 15. You would therefore have 5/15 + 6/15 = 11/15 (don't forget, you've got to multiply the numerator by the same number as the denominator to get equivalent fractions to start with). Use the diagrams on the worksheets to help you if you are unsure about these methods.
Reading
As mentioned at the start of the class page, please make sure you spend 30 minutes each day on 'Reading Plus.' If you are having any problems with this, please email Mr Macklam.

Click on the My Maths link to look at how to add/subtract fractions. Then do the worksheet. As always, do as many questions as you can  some are harder than others! Then mark your work using the answers.
Top Tip: Remember, when you are adding or subtracting fractions, you only need to do the calculation to the numerator; the denominator stays the same. If the denominators are different, multiply the smaller one to make it the same as the larger one or, if this can't be done, change them both so that you have a common denominator.

Maths
Early Bird  Children should use their Maths book and complete the questions on the Early Bird Maths link (multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000)
Main Focus  WALT Revising comparing and ordering fractions less than one
Go to Lesson 4 w/c 11th May on 'White Rose Home Learning.' Watch the video, if you are unsure, and do the worksheet. As always, do as many questions as you can  some are harder than others! Then mark your work using the answers.
Top Tip: Remember, if the denominators are different, multiply the smaller one to make it the same as the larger one or, if this can't be done, change them both so that you have a common denominator. For example, if you compare 2/3 to 3/5, change the denominators to fifteenths (common denominator) by multiplying 3 x 5 = 15 and 5 x 3 = 15. You would therefore have 10/15 compared with 9/15 (don't forget, you've got to multiply the numerator by the same number as the denominator to get equivalent fractions). Use the diagrams on the worksheets to help you if you are unsure about these methods.
Reading

Tuesday 12th May
Maths
Early Bird  Children should use their Maths book and complete the questions on the Early Bird Maths link (multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000)
Main Focus  WALT Revising changing improper to mixed fractions and viceversa
Go to Lesson 3 w/c 11th May on 'White Rose Home Learning.' Watch the video, if you are unsure, and do the worksheet. As always, do as many questions as you can  some are harder than others! Then mark your work using the answers.
Remember, to change improper to mixed, divide the numerator by the denominator and write this as a whole number. If you have a remainder, write this as a fraction. For example, 1o/4 is 10 divided by 4 which is 2 remainder 2. So, the answer is 22/4 or 21/2 if you simplify it. To change mixed to improper, times the denominator by the whole number and add the numerator to it. The denominator stays the same. So 33/4 changed to an improper fraction is 3 x 4 = 12. Then, add 3 which is 15/4. Use the diagrams on the worksheets to help you if you are unsure about these methods.

History
Today, it is 200 years since Florence Nightingale was born (12th May 1820). With everything that is happening with Coronavirus at the moment (and the fact that emergency hospitals have recently been named after her), it is only right that we should think of her life and all that she did to promote the development of nursing and hygiene in hospitals. Please read the article on her. This has been kindly provided by Mrs Bosomworth's sister who is a children's writer and has recently written a book about Florence Nightingale. When you have finished reading, research Florence Nightingale on the internet and write a fact file about her. In the fact file, you might want to use sub headings, like: Born; Early Life; Crimean War; Later Life and What Florence did to change Hospitals and Nursing (her legacy). You might also want to do a sketch of her.
Remember to keep up with the exercise!!!
