Go to today's date and choose a maths sheet. Bronze and silver are not too challenging; Gold is the year 6 level and platinum has the extra challenge. If there are questions you are not sure about, ask an adult to help. If you are super successful, try a level up, if you are finding a sheet hard, try a level down. Check your answers and if you get a question wrong, go back and check.
Here are some maths activities for you to try:
NRICH has developed a Maths at Home resource. Here is the interactive activities section click here
Make a list of all the ways Ely Cathedral is currently used as a building and centre for Ely. You might think of who uses it and why. Do you think it has always been used in this way? What do you think has been the most recent change?
Make a list of the different uses.
Choose a bird design ( a real bird or you can make up your own fantasy bird) and make a few sketches - bird in flight, with wings open, bird perched. Think about the colours and detail of tail, wing, plume, crest...
Make a collage of your design. Use different colours and shades ( you can use old gift rap, magazine photos, tissue... anything you can lay your hands on)
Reading comprehension resource
If you need novels to read at home, please ask a grown up to send us an e mail and we can send you a reading pack home.
We have been thinking about the way birds fly and how the eagle has to launch itself into the wind.
We can explore what happens when things fall through air with these activities:
1. Collect items such as a paper clip, a feather, a flat sheet of A4; a folded sheet of A 4. Drop each item from the same height and time each fall in seconds. Before you do it, predict what you think will happen.
The only variable should be the item dropped. Keep everything else the same. Repeat each drop 3 times and find the average time over 3 drops. (add the 3 times and divide by 3)
Record your findings on a  table. What did you notice? Did everything fall at the same rate?
When things are dropped, gravity pulls them to the earth. The air slows the things down as they drop through the air. The air pushes against the surface area of an object. This is called air resistance and is a force that works against the pull of gravity.
