Study Ladder - A couple of you have had some hiccups with Study Ladder so we thought we'd share them here.
- Study Ladder is set to school hours so don't try to do it after 3:30
- Some spelling lessons do have a glitch when you have to retype a word. If that happens please email your class teacher with the details of the lesson and we can report it to Study Ladder.
- An eagle-eyed year 5 has spotted some mistakes in the maths answers. If you put in your answer, and you are sure that you are right, ask an adult to check with a calculator. You might be right. Again, if you tell us which lesson, we can report the mistake to Study Ladder.
Thank you all for your hard work in using Study Ladder. There may be odd glitches with it, but overall it is such a good way of you practising your work right now.
Have a look at these 25 fun maths activities and games you could do at home for free.
Miss Evans' favourite idea from this website is a Maths Problem Scavenger Hunt! Get an adult to give you a grid of measurements (e.g. 30cm, 300g, 10mm, 50g, 1m etc.) then gather items from all over your house and garden to match.
There is also a bumper pack of KS2 Maths sheets below to practise basic arithmetic skills.
|Audible is currently free (with no need to create an account) which gives you access to hundreds of audio books! Miss Evans is particularly thrilled because you can even hear Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone! Which exciting book are you going to discover? Which audiobook do you recommend to your class teacher?|
|Are you running out of books at home yet? There are a variety of ebooks available online for free from Oxford Owl. You just need to make a free account. As you can see below, there are lots to choose from. There is even the option of having them read aloud.|
STORY TIME with Mrs Wilson!
I am reading The BFG by Roald Dahl, the Puffin edition (as recommended by Explorers).
The BFG Page 1
The BFG Page 8
The BFG Page 16 - I'm not happy with my BFG voice yet - it may change! I can only upload short bursts at a time (about 1/2 a page) so this will all make more sense if you read the book for yourself alongside listening to my extracts!
The BFG page 23.
The BFG page 34. I have realised there is a lot of speech in this book - it's quite hard to find extracts to read without speech. In this one The BFG is explaining to Sophie how he finds dreams.
The BFG Page 39. More on dreams - I like the idea of a net to catch dreams...
The BFG Page 73 - How to catch a dream...
The BFG page 81.
The BFG page 91.
The BFG - page 144
