I hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to enjoy the sunshine! This week Mrs Klinker has set up a TTRs battle: KS2 boys vs KS2 girls. It starts on Monday at 9am and finishes Friday at 3.15. Get battling!

Poetry - reading
 
This week we are going to be following a set of lessons from the Oak National Academy. We will be looking at poetry and today you will be reading a poem called 'The Magic Box' and looking at the word meaning. 
 
 
Watch the video and work through the activities. Read the poem, are there any words you don't understand?What is a synonym and an antonym? Match the correct synonyms and antonyms to the words from the text. Find you own words from the text and come up with a synonym and antonym for these.

History 

What was it like to live in the Bronze Age?
 

Watch the video and read the information. Create a poster showing what life was like in the Bronze Age. If you would like to present this in another day then you can. There is also a timeline activity to complete.

Watch the videos and read the information. What are mountains? How are they formed? Name 3 famous mountain ranges in the world. 
 
Activity 1 - quiz 
Activity 2 - colour in the mountain ranges on the world map according to where they are located. You might need to do a bit of extra research to find where they are! You could use Google Maps, an atlas or a world map. 
Activity 3 - sort the different activities according to whether they are done on hills and mountains in the UK or not in the UK, or not on hills and mountains at all. There is no need to print and cut - you could just make a list.

Spellings
 
It's time to test yourself on the 'sc' words from last week! I have posted a voice recording on Seesaw which you can use if you would like or you could ask someone at home to test you.

Science 
 
Friction
 
 
Watch the video and complete the activities. What is friction? Complete the table giving real life uses of friction, both helpful and unhelpful. 
 
See if you can find examples of friction around the house. For example, what happens when you walk on a hard floor in socks vs in shoes? Why is this? If you have a toy car you could try building a ramp for it out of different materials (example below) and testing to see which one has the most friction and which one has the least. What would you predict?
Thursday 21st May
 
TTRs: remember, the battle ends at 3.15 tomorrow! I can see lots of you have been playing and both the boys and the girls have a very high score.
