This week we are going to focus on engineering and structures.
Challenge yourself to build these towers and bridges just using a single sheet of paper.
How much self control do you have? Challenge some one at home to build the tallest tower out of just spaghetti and marshmallow!
We will be completing these challenges in class also, I would love to see how you do at home.
Reading: This week our reading focuses on engineers.
Attached are reading comprehensions, there are 3 levels of text and questions shown by the stars on the bottom left of the sheet (1 star easiest, 2 stars middle, 3 stars more difficult) choose your level, read and answer, the answers are also provided for you to check.
Can you make your own game of tops trumps? What will you pick as your topic?

Planning, designing and building shelters for our soft toys by Mrs Banford.
Before you starts ask yourself some questions…
1.How do you want your structure to look? Remember to think how you are going to make your structure stable.
- a lean to,
- a tipi shape,
- resting against something solid already such as a tree
- Do you want it to be as waterproof as possible?
- Think about its location – off the ground, hidden in the undergrowth, in the open?
- What materials are you going to use?
- Sticks, twigs, grass, leaves, moss, dead leaves, flowers (you can pick daisys and dandelions ). Use your imagination.
First Plan and sketch your design, remember to label (using rulers) clearing stating what material you are using.
Then go out and collect your materials and place them where you are erecting your structure (do not forget to take your soft toy – they may get lonely if you leave them!)
Remember your plans can change as you go along – just go with what works.
In your book answer the following questions…
How did you change your shelter from last time (when we built them in forest school) and from your plans ?
What went well?
What could you do to improve your shelter?
If you would like sketch the new shelter in your book remembering to label it.
After construction is completed lets share your animal shelters with someone from your family.
Hello Class 3! Mrs Waters here, I hope you are all well.
For this week’s history lesson, we are going to be doing something a little bit different and it involves you doing some research. What I love about history is that it is all around us and quite often we take for granted what is on our door step, without realising the history behind it. Therefore, the next 2 or 3 weeks I thought it would be fun to explore local history. We are going to start with Clun Castle.
I would like you to please find at least 10 facts about Clun Castle. Then using the information you have found I would like you to draw or make what you think or what you know the castle looked like. You could draw or paint it, you could make a model using lego, card or something else. Use your imagination but your end product has to be realistic. When you have made or drawn Clun Castle please include your 10 facts in whatever way you choose, remembre to share your work with school.
I look forward to seeing your work. Take care, Mrs Waters
For this weeks P.E lesson there are 2 things I would like you to do please.
1. Watch and take part in my video from last week but try and do it a bit faster and I will be back next week with another video.
2. On 23rd June it is International Olympic Day, this is a day to celebrate the Olympic games and get everyone active. Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea for you all to have your own home Olympics. I have included some ideas below.
In your Olympics you could include:
· Standing jump – mark a start line and take it in turns to see how far you can jump.
· Discus – using a paper plate or frisbee see who can throw the furthest. To make this more of a challenge you could mark a boundary and if it goes over the boundary it’s a no throw.
· Egg and spoon race.
· Hoola hoop – who can hoola hoop the longest.
· Shot put – use a ball and again make a boundary to make it more challenging.
· Skipping – a skipping race timing each other or who can skip for the longest.
· An obstacle course – what could you have in yours be creative.
I am sure you will all have lots of ideas of your own and I look forward to seeing photos of your Olympics in action. Most importantly have fun.
Class 3 as you will have your Olympic Crown from last week’s history lesson you could award you household winner with the crown. Take care and enjoy, Mrs Waters

Year 6 only: Transition activity
Year 6, over the next 4 weeks we will be thinking about transition to secondary school.
Our first activity for this week and next week is to make a transition lap-book. This process should be completed with an adult so that you can discuss and share your ideas and thoughts at each stage. This first document Making your lapbook explains the first steps. Each page has a short explanation of how to complete, most pages have a choice or a black and white or colour option..
