Summer 1 Home Learning Week 5

Hello! I hope you are continuing to stay safe and well. I am missing you all! 
 
I have added some new activities to this weeks work for you to have a go at as I thought you would find them interesting. Let me know how you get on with the STEM and Computational Thinking tasks. 
Maths
This week, please follow the Summer Term week 5 learning on the White Rose Maths website. The link is: 
 
 
The videos are available on the website to support each lesson.
Lesson 4 is slightly different to the planned one because we have already covered the objectives previously. 
Here are the links to the worksheets you will need for this week:
Computational Thinking
 
Wow, what on earth does that mean, you may be wondering?!
It basically means learning to solve problems with or without a computer!
These problem solving skills support you in all other aspects of the curriculum and in life, not just in computing so they are worthwhile to focus on. 
 
Please see below for further information:
We are going to focus on algorithms to begin with and link it to a story/song that some of you may be familiar with. Below you will find the instructions for story sequencing and some activity cards to support the activity.
There are also some mini-missions you may wish to have a go at. Don't forget to send in your photos to show me what you have been up to!
