Good Morning Leaders.

Another beautiful day with sunshine to warm our hearts. As you will know, it is VE Day on Friday and I know that Mrs Burton has been posting lots of VE ideas for you. I was wondering whether you were planning to do anything with your families, and I would love to hear. Send me a message, video or photos to let me know your plans – can’t wait to hear.


Have a look at the clips to give you some more ideas for your comic strip or animation. If you are animating, you will need some patience to capture the movements – if you do too much at once it won’t necessarily work. 

Remember not to rush, you have the rest of the week to finish your project.


Diagonal Addition Investigation.

Look at the green square which contains the numbers 2,3,12 and 13.
Do you notice anything about the sum of the numbers that are diagonally opposite each other?

Look at the pink square.
What happens this time when you look at the numbers diagonally opposite each other?
What about the yellow square?
You could try with other squares which have four numbers in them.
Can you find a reason why what you notice, happens?

Look at the squares shaded red. They form the corners of a large 3 by 3 square.
If you add the numbers diagonally opposite each other, what do you notice with this larger square?
Can you find a reason why what you notice, happens?

What happens for squares of different sizes?

Geography – What is a Biome?

Today I would like you to investigate biomes. You can use the clip below to help you.

Once you have found out, choose one type of biome and carry out some further investigation. You can present this information however you wish.
