Good morning Cedar class! I am so impressed by all of your hard work already this week- keep it up! smiley

This week I want you to be a pineapple- now that may seem strange so let me explain. I want you to stand tall and wear a crown by being proud of yourself and all of your incredible achievements. Look back at all of the things that you have done (have a look at the class gallery to help) and feel happy with your work and how far that you have come. Oh and make sure that you are sweet, kind and caring to others because remember they have also worked extremely hard too! smiley



*New myhappymind module this week*


Over the next 2 weeks we will be focussing on the ‘Celebrate activities' module which can be found on your myHappymind portal (please see the myHappymind tab for more information about how to access this portal).  Here you will find lots of fun activities to do relating to this module! Remember that you have 2 weeks to complete the activities in this section so you have lots of time to get everything done. Please don’t forget about the myHappymind app too. Maybe you could set aside special times in the day to do some happy breathing exercises as well!


Today's Tasks


TTRS battle is Cedar boys v girls - last of these battles today!! 





Today we are looking at turning our decimals into fractions. Watch the video and complete the worksheet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jcW-ZgpRbM.

Use the decimal wall to help you!

The easiest way to convert fractions to decimals is by converting them into tenths and hundredths or learning the simple ones as you can see in these images:

Converting fractions to decimals anchor chart focusing on the ...How to Convert Fractions to Decimals: 14 Steps (with Pictures)

Method 1 in MNP worksheet= seeing the amount visually. To help you to practice seeing the equal amounts, find some lego, sweets, pasta, stones or shells etc and show the fractions below as equal decimals:

1/10 = one tenth =

3/10 = three tenths =

9/10 = nine tenths =

30/100= thirty hundredths =

50/100 = fifty hundredths =


Method 2 in MNP worksheet= mental calculation. If you struggle with this method then that is okay, you might just need more practice! First, make sure that you understand method 1. If you have had a practice of the task above, then can you see how easy it is to make tenths and hundredths into decimals. So it is easier if we aim to make our fraction into  /10 or /100 (tenths or hundredths) first. For example:

Here we are making our 1/2 into a tenth. As you can see from the picture, half of 10/10 = 5/10 but how do we know that without drawing it out? Start by looking at the bottom two numbers (the denominators). How many times does 2 divide into 10? 10 divided by 2 = 5 or 2x10=5. So we know that we have to x 5 to get the denominators and remember whatever you do to the bottom you must also do to the top! 1x5= 5

Have a practice - the more you practice the more it will make sense!

History- Ancient Greece

Today you are learning how to be a good historian! Being a good historian is a bit like being a detective – you need to look carefully and ask lots of questions. Watch the short video clip to find out more:



Today, you will be using primary sources to find out about life in Ancient Greece. A primary source is something that was made or written during the time you are learning about, e.g. an ancient Greek vase. Your task is to look through the power point and select one of the primary sources, then to complete the evidence sheet provided. Key questions to consider are: what is it used for? What is it made of? Who used it? How was it used? What does it tell us about the ancient Greeks? Is it useful?

A note for parents

Dear Parents

I have attached a home learning letter below for your attention. As a school, we want to assure you that we understand the difficulties parents and children face adapting to this new way of learning. 

In the star of the week, we look forward to celebrating children taking part in Amaven and Joe Wicks workouts, baking, painting as well as school work set through home learning. 

The project homework set on Monday is for the full term and for you to have a go at as and when you can. 

I hope this note offers reassurance. We are grateful for all your support. 

Kind regards, 

Miss Boult. 


Changes to our class page

You have may noticed some changes to our class page- there are new tabs to explore. One of the new buttons is called 'Class Gallery'. I have missed seeing all of your fabulous work so this is a place where I can put pictures and examples of the work that you are doing at home! Although I won't be able to reply, if you are proud of a piece of work that you have completed that day then please send it over to: 


For twitter users, another way we can celebrate work on our new Project Homework is by using our # on twitter. Once you have completed your project homework please upload a photo of your work under #WhitbyHeathProjectHomework and #yeargroup

Parents, we really appreciate your supervision and support with this as we look to provide another opportunity for children show off their work and connect with their peers. 

Additionally, there is a new 'Project Homework' button to explore. As part of our learning for our new topic Ancient Greece, I have set you a  task which is linked to Greek myths and legends. This is to be completed over the half term, so there is plenty of time to research, plan and produce an amazing final piece! 

Also, I will also be setting you a word of the week activity, which will help to develop your knowledge and understanding of key vocabulary. To develop your understanding, I would like you to find synonyms (words with similar meanings) and antonyms (words with opposite meanings) for your chosen word. I would also like you to define the word (this is where the dictionary might come in useful!) and to write a sentence using the word correctly. This activity can be printed out or completed in your home learning books. 

*Class page update*

I have added a new tab called 'Answers for the weekly tasks'. This will be where you can find all answers for the tasks that have been set that week.
