14th July 2021

Welcome to your home learning for Wednesday 14th July 2021!

Here you will find your tasks for the day. If you have any worries or concerns, you know where to find me.

Joke of the day:

Q: What did the spider do on the computer?
A: Made a website!

Fact of the day:

Caterpillars have about four thousand muscles.


Why not have a go at some SuperMovers, GoNoodle, Cosmic Yoga or Joe Wicks before starting your learning?

Please make sure you are dedicating about 25 minutes per day to reading. Remember you can quiz at home too!


Please have a go at one of the spelling sheets below. You might want to complete more than one!


Today, we are recapping translations. We are all confident with co-ordinates. You just need to remember to go 'along the corridor and then up the stairs.' 

What are Coordinates? How to Work out Coordinates

So the skull is (A,1) 

If you are 'moving on a grid' you will be given some instructions, such as 'move two up and 3 right.' 

You just need to make sure you make equal jumps and remember which way is left/right!

So, my new co-ordinate would be (D,3)

We are going to be doing some writing today, then tomorrow we will edit it. It would be really helpful if you could write a line, miss a line so that we can add in improvements tomorrow.

Join us in our Zoom session to talk about different word choices and to write an example paragraph together.

Today, we are continuing to think about the Olympics. You are going to imagine that you are in charge of designing the newest Olympic park. The Olympic park is the whole area where the Olympics are held, the athletes stay and the tourists visit. 

Have a look at this video to see what the park looks like for the Olympics being held in a few weeks:

What can you see?

Think about: capacity (how many people it holds), innovative design/iconic building, how it is fit for purpose, how it is made secure, whether it looks comfortable, design features such as changing rooms, running tracks etc.

If you were in charge of designing the Olympic park, what would you include? What would make it the best Olympic stadium ever? What materials/energy would you use? What colour scheme would you go for? What shape buildings will you have? How will you spread things out?

Have a go at drawing your design/map like above. It would be great if you could add colour and annotations, so we can see what makes your idea different to everyone else'. We will have a go at designing one together in our Zoom session. 

You might even want to have a go at building your design from materials around your house instead of/as well as drawing your idea out on paper — you could use lego, play dough, recycled containers etc.

You must include: 

  • A stadium
  • Swimming pool
  • gymnasium
  • Accommodation for athletes
  • restaurant
  • Shops (what kind?)
  • toilets
  • lake
  • doctors
  • pharmacy
  • Rail station
  • Martial arts arena
  • Different areas for biking activities/ basket ball etc. 

Tomorrow, we will share our ideas in our Zoom session.
