Hi Eagles!

 

Welcome to our class page! We are so impressed with all the work we have seen over the last few months and almost all of you are using Seesaw to share your lovely work with us and your classmates. If you need a Seesaw code or any support, please get in touch:

 

bezodisg5@hwbcymru.net

williamss1329@hwbcymru.net

 

Each week, we will be posting a set of four tasks for you to complete. They can be seen in the table below and on Seesaw under Activities. We will make sure they are on there ready for you to start working on each Monday, but we'll keep the old ones in a folder below too so you can always look back at previous ones. We'd love to see the work and tasks you're completing so please upload this using Seesaw. Remember you can like and comment on your friends' work too! 

 

There are also plenty of other resources and links that we've shared with you on this webpage. We have split them into different areas for you to explore. Try to do a bit from each area.  Remember, it's important to stay busy and have fun!

Eagles Weekly Challenges 

Week Commencing: Monday 29th June 2020

Work to be submitted by: Friday 3rd July 2020

Week beginning: Monday 29th June

Work deadline: Friday  3rd July

 

Theme: Olympics

Hi everyone! So this is the week when we get to welcome you back into school and we are so excited! We understand that not all of you will be back though; don’t panic we still have plenty for you to do!

 

For the next three weeks, we will still be posting four tasks for you all to complete – one language, one maths, one topic and one well-being.

 

Each of these tasks will be broken down into three smaller chunks. One of these chunks will be ‘starred’ (***) and this is the activity that we will do with you in class on the day you are in school. If you are not returning, then all three chunks should be completed at home.

 

Numeracy

This week we are learning to:

calculate the perimeter and area of sports fields or pitches.

 

The perimeter of a shape is the distance all the way around the edge.

We calculate this by adding up the lengths of each side.

 

The area is the space inside a shape.

We calculate this by counting known blocks of space inside, if it is an irregular shape.

 

Or we can multiply the length by the width of the shape if it is a square/rectangle. Sometimes we can split an irregular shape into two rectangles; then we find the area of each and add the areas together.

 

You Maths tasks this week are:

1. To find the perimeter of a selection shapes by adding up the lengths of the edges.

2. To find the area of a selection of shapes by counting the number of 1cm 2 squares the shape covers. Then to find the area of a selection of rectangles by multiplying the length by the width.

3. *** (This is the chunk that will be done in class, if you are returning to school)

To calculate the perimeter of compound shapes by adding up the lengths of their sides. And to calculate the area of compound or irregular shapes by multiplying length by width for different sections of the shape.

 

 

Literacy

This week we are learning to:

create an athlete fact-file.

 

Your language task this week is to create a factfile of an Olympic athlete and start to understand what it takes to become an athlete who competes at the highest level!

 

1.

Watch this video with Max Whitlock, British Gymnast.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2XC-0Vt500

 

Also read his factfile.

https://www.british-gymnastics.org/gymnast-profiles/377804/max-whitlock-mbe

 

Around the gymnast outline picture, write down words that you think describe this incredible athlete. Think about:

*his personality – perhaps is he committed, determined, driven etc

*his appearance – perhaps he is strong, flexible, muscular etc

*his sacrifices (what has he given up in order to be an Olympic athlete?)

 

2.

Have a look at the different Olympic Sports and choose one that interests you.

https://www.teamgb.com/sports

 

Then have a look at the athlete list and find an athlete from that sport.

https://www.teamgb.com/athletes

 

Research this athlete and create a factfile about them. You need to include:

*general information: name, age, where they’re from

*information about their sport

*medals won so far and from what competitions

*what training do they have to do?

*what kind of food must they eat?

*who do they train with and where?

*hopes for the future – what are they aiming for?

 

Think carefully about how you will present your factfile. Here are some examples of how you could lay yours out.

 

3.*** (This is the chunk that will be done in class, if you are returning to school)

Look at some information about Dina Asher-Smith, GB sprinter.

https://www.britishathletics.org.uk/athletes/dina-asher-smith/

https://worldathletics.org/athletes/great-britain-ni/dina-asher-smith-14378282

 

Read through this article and watch the video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQbCO7XXSJA

https://www.athleticsweekly.com/featured/dina-asher-smith-winter-grind-1039927711/

 

Once you have read this article and watched the video about this inspiring female athlete, see if you can complete the sentences. First, choose a connective from the box and then complete the sentence. If you’re feeling confident, have a go at completing the sentences which start with the connective. Remember this creates a clause and must have a comma to show this.

Now can you write some of your own sentences, either using connectives to extend your sentence or start your sentence?

Topic - Heroes

This week we are learning to:

explore the Olympic Games and the things associated with them.

 

1.*** (This is the chunk that will be done in class, if you are returning to school)

Watch this advert for the London 2012 Olympics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cVrjFlt4hI

Can you think of 5 words that come to your mind when you watch it?

 

What do you know about the Olympics? Tell a family member or write your ideas down.

 

Did you know the Summer Olympics takes place every 4 years? There is also a Winter Olympics in between. The last Olympics was in 2016 and it took place in Rio. The Olympics was supposed to take place in Tokyo this year but it has sadly been postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

 

Look at the photographs attached to this activity. Write down 3 things that you see, think and wonder when you look at them.

 

To explore some more, watch a few minutes of the Rio 2016 Olympics opening ceremony:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_qXm9HY9Ro

 

 

2.  Do you know the difference between a continent, country and city? Swansea is one of many cities that make up Wales. Wales is one of many countries that make up the continent Europe.

 

Go onto Google Maps -  https://www.google.com/maps

Type in Swansea and zoom out using the minus (-) button at the bottom right so you can see where in the world we are! How amazing is that?

 

Which cities have hosted the Olympics in the past?

Let’s have a look!

 

1984 – Los Angeles

1988 – Seoul

1992 – Barcelona

1996 – Atlanta

2000 – Sydney

2004 – Athens

2008 – Beijing

2012 – London

2016 – Rio de Janeiro

2020 – Tokyo (postponed)

 

Your first task is to use Google Maps to find which countries these cities are in. Write your answers in notes or handwrite them and take a picture to upload to Seesaw. Could you colour these countries in on a world map?

 

 

Wellbeing

This week we are learning to:

re-connect with those around us.

 

Let’s make a Class Joke Book!!

 

We thought it would be a fun idea to make a class joke book! So we will compile everyone’s jokes and then turn them into a book that we can keep. As we are thinking about the Olympics over the next few weeks, all our jokes need to be sports related.

 

Here are a few examples of sports jokes, but I bet you can find, or make up, some better ones!

*Why don’t fish play football? Because they’re scared of nets!

*What time do tennis players go to bed? Tennish!

*When is a baby good at basketball? When it’s dribbling!

*What animal is best at hitting a baseball? A bat!

*What is an insect’s favourite sport?  Cricket!

 

1.

Find or make up at least five sport related jokes.

 

2.

Type these up into a Word document or in Notes on SeeSaw and edit/format them to make them look attractive. Feel free to add images too.

 

3. *** (This is the chunk that will be done in class, if you are returning to school)

Attach your document to an email and email to your teachers. This way, we can put them all together to make our book!
