Below is the sports challenge for this week. You might want to have a go at this on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday when Joe Wicks isn’t doing one of his live lessons. If you have a go, don’t forget to post about your achievements on Seesaw!
5. Challenge: Compound Nouns. You have met 3 compound nouns in the video. German has a lot of compound nouns formed by sticking words together, a bit like lego bricks! You learnt how to do this in Year 4 with our cafe topic.
6. Optional Activity 1: Find out about “pancake traditions in other countries” and write a fact file of what you find out.
7. Optional activity 2:
With an adult’s help you could try making pancakes (Pfannkuchen) and how about trying one of the fillings the children in the video had? Take photos and send them into Seesaw – how did your Pfannkuchen taste? Lecker (delicious), wunderbar (wonderful), nicht so gut (not so good)?
Here is the weekly home learning pack for this week.
The majority of the content is the same as the daily blogs but adapted slightly to avoid the need for external websites.
We are aware that moving from one link to another can be time-consuming for some so by uploading a week’s worth of learning we hope we can provide further support to those families who would prefer this method.
We will be uploading daily lessons for you to complete and share with us. Please share your work on the Seesaw page – along with your name so we know who the work belongs to.
This is how your learning will look for this week:
P.E. Maths English (Spelling – possessive apostrophes & Reading)
P.E. Maths English (Spelling & Reading)
P.E. Maths English (Reading Comprehension)
P.E. Maths English (Creative Writing)
P.E. Maths English (Grammar – plural and possessive s & Reading)
Art – painting
Computing – coding
Science – rate of evaporation and temperature
PSHE (Picture News)
Also, you may have heard that Joe Wicks is cutting down his daily P.E. lessons to just 3 times a week – Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. However, we have started posting weekly sporting challenges from the Chelmsford Sports Partnership every week that you could do instead!

Have a go at one or more of the following activities:
Who is the diver? What is he doing?
What caused the water to rise?
Where have all the people gone?
What do you think the mermaid thinks about the recent events?
Do you think there might be a real city somewhere under the ocean, waiting to be discovered?
Imagine your school was underwater. Draw or describe what one of your lessons would look like.
Can you continue the story?
The water was rising. Soon, everything would be underwater.
The thousands of lights that sparkled against the dark backdrop of the colossal skyscrapers were being extinguished one by one, as the monstrous buildings were gradually disappearing under the dark tides; banished to a watery grave beneath the lonely depths.
Nobody knew what had caused the great flood. There had not been time to stop and think.
Which two of these sentences are statements? Which are questions? Which are commands?
The turtle has a green shell.
Look at his beak!
Where has the water come from?
The city is disappearing beneath the water.
Watch out for the waves!
These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Could you add an adjective or an adverb or improve the verbs used?
The water rose. Buildings all over the city went under the sea. A turtle swam through the water.
