Update - 23.04.2020
Hello Persevering Pumas!
I hope you're all enjoying your home learning this week and you're all staying safe! Thank you for all your emails, photos and videos so far, it's been great to see what you've been up to! Please keep them coming and keep up the fabulous work. I am so proud of how you've all settled back into home learning again this week.
Also, have a look at what your friends have been up to. I've posted some of the photos I've received below and it's nice to see all the smiley faces whilst we're not together.
If I've not heard from you yet this week, please ask your grown up to send a quick email with a few pictures so that I can check you're getting on okay at home.
Stay safe everyone,
Welcome back to home learning Persevering Pumas!
I hope that you've had a lovely Easter break and you're well rested ready to begin the Summer Term and a new week of home learning. Hopefully, you've managed to have some fun over Easter with your families and you've enjoyed some of the glorious April sunshine.
Throughout the week, your home learning is made up of maths, English, topic, RE and as always, PE and creative time. Details of all the home learning for this week are found below. I'm really proud of how well you've all adapted to this new way of learning - it's weird for me too, not seeing you all everyday! Keep up the excellent work and I look forward to receiving photos of what you've done and any questions that you may have via email throughout the week.
Stay safe and remember to have lots of fun!
In maths this week, we are continuing with our work on decimals by making wholes, writing, comparing and ordering decimals.
To support you with this, the White Rose Hub (the scheme we follow everyday in school) has created some excellent resources. There are 4 lessons for you to complete this week, along with a challenge on Friday! Each lesson comes with a useful video teaching you the news skills and a worksheet for you to complete.
Posted below is the link to the teaching videos (and the answers if you'd like to mark the work afterwards) and each of the lesson worksheets. If you have a printer, feel free to print out the worksheets and stick them into your home learning book. If not, you can simply just write the answers straight into your home learning book instead - it's entirely up to you!
Did you see the amazing war veteran Captain Tom Moore walking laps of his garden to raise money for the NHS? What a great achievement! As it's so current and topical, this week I would like you to write a newspaper article based on this incredible news story. Please see the document below for extra information about the different tasks involved in your English work this week. I have also included some extra challenge activities that you may wish to complete about Captain Tom Moore.
In the document below, you will also find details about this weeks Spelling Shed and Bug Club activities. As always, please continue to read your favourite books at home too!
Topic - RE
Last half term in RE, you learnt about the religion Sikhism. This week, I would like you to expand your knowledge of different religions (Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism & Sikhism) by completing a research activity. Take a look at the document below for more information and try to be creative by presenting your research in an interesting way!
Topic - DT & Music
Hopefully you'll find this weeks topic activity really fun! Still part of the rainforest topic, but pulling it to an exciting end, I would like you to design and make your very own rain stick to make the sounds of the rainforest. Read the document below which will take you through a researching, designing, making and evaluating process and when you have completed your rain stick, you can use it to play along to some of the songs included below. I'd love to receive some photos of your finished product or even a short video of you playing it!
A few examples of rainforest songs
Below is an extra PE challenge if you'd like to vary your daily active time this week!
Illustration to Creation:
As part of your daily creative time, every week we will be posting an illustration to create ideas for you to use at home. It's not just about writing and reading but how an image can inspire art, creativity, design, science, knowledge etc. More examples can be found using the hashtag #Illustration2Creation.
Here's an image from David Litchfield's out-of-this-world children's picture book Lights on Cotton Rock to inspire your creative activities this week:
- Create an alien craft from Lego/ recyclable materials
- Make a film of an alien landing using a model you have made
- Draw the aliens that come from the craft
- Make an alien mask
- Design an alien language
- Write a diary: The day the aliens landed
- Create a night scene of magical colours using paint, chalk or pastels
- Film a news report: Alien sightings
- How will you welcome the aliens? Write a welcome letter
- Imagine you are going with the aliens to their planet. Pack a rucksack with items you would take.
- Draw their home planet.
- Watch a film set in space with your family (or my favourite: E.T.!)
