We hope everyone is well and managing to keep going despite the restrictions and difficulties that Coronavirus has brought.
Here is this week’s home learning. Again, we have tried to blend a mix of daily activities and some tasks to do through-out the week. As always, if there is something else you are interested in or want to find out about, please feel free to explore and share anything you have done on Class Dojo (if you can). We know that lots of you have been developing new skills while school has been closed and, again, this is great and we would love to see what you were up to with pictures on Class Dojo or emailed into school.
As we mentioned last week, BBC Bitesize daily lessons might give you something that you are interested in. Alternatively, Oak National Academy is an online school, set-up whilst schools are closed, to deliver lessons. The links for both websites are below:
White Rose Maths are reviewing subtracting decimals (which we covered earlier in the school closure) for Monday and Tuesday and then looking at multiplying and dividing decimals by 10, 100 and 100. We have included the worksheets and answers as usual. The link to the videos which support the learning can also be found below:
Last week we started a brand new literacy unit called ‘Wonderful Wizards!’ We hope you enjoyed the first few sessions and making the Top Trumps cards. The unit continues this week with a focus on persuasive writing. As with last week, we have to post the whole unit but the focus for the week is on pages 11 - 18.
PUNCTUATION AND GRAMMAR
If you want to focus on some of the technical points of writing, as well as doing all the creative writing in the Wizards unit, then BBC, Oak Academy and Anchor Education (use the password: anchorhome) all provide activities, songs and videos to work on:
This week, we have tried to add a few more websites for reading (it's getting harder to find things in the house that haven't been read!) Some of the sites are a bit trickier to navigate than others (so children might need some help) but there are lots of extracts and books to explore:
WEEKLY LEARNING - History, STEM, Spellings, Art . . .
Our history challenge this week is to create a timeline of Henry VIII’s life and find out about one of his wives and create a portrait of her (there is a website link below that will help you find out all about Henry VIII). There are also spellings to practice and a STEM challenge to create a marble maze (a bit like the ones you find on the lids of bubble mixture bottles). Keep posting your work on Class Dojo!
Here is the third theme of our community history project - how we have been keeping ourselves safe during lockdown. Get inolved and email pictures, stories, work etc. to the school admin team.
