WB 27.04.20 Week 4

Home Learning - Week Beginning 27.04.2020

Hello Adventurous Anacondas! Can you believe it's Week 4 of Home Learning? We're so proud of how much effort and enthusiasm you've all been putting into your work so please keep it up! It's wonderful to see so many of you enjoying the learning we should have been doing in school, at home. For this week, we have planned Maths, English, History (our new topic) PE and Computing. Don't forget to email photographs and updates of your week at the tier-group email address along with any questions you have. We're looking forward to hearing from you all, Mr Khan, Miss Brooks and Miss Brown


Last week, you were asked to create a rain stick as part of your DT learning. We received so many fantastic photographs of your completed projects as well as comments from your grown-ups about how much you enjoyed making them. This week's English is linked to your rain stick project. Please read the document below which explains everything you need to do in English this week. You'll also find details about Education City, Spelling Shed and Bug Club activities and, as always, please continue to read your favourite books at home too!


A big shout out to Frances, Jonah, Penny, India, Mia, Abigayle and Joshua for completing all Education City activities last week!


In Maths, Year 3 will continue learning about fractions whilst Year 4 will continue their unit on decimals and money. There are 5 lessons with teaching videos, activity sheets and answers on the White Rose Hub website. Once you have completed all 5 lessons, we have assigned activities on Mathletics to consolidate your learning. Please complete this so we know how you are progressing at home. Don't forget to practise your times tables on TTRS too!

Topic - Computing 

We know that lots of you are using technology to support your learning so far - we've been so impressed by this! This week's Computing helps to further enhance your coding and problem-solving skills based around computational thinking. Read the document below to find out more about what computational thinking is (don't worry grown-ups, there's no specialist technology or expertise required!) There are lots of activities so just choose the ones that are of interest to you! 


We're very excited to be starting our new topic: the Anglo Saxons! We're sure that lots of you won't know anything about them, or may not have even heard of them, but we have plenty of time to learn! To begin the topic, we would like you to investigate the question: Who were the Anglo Saxons? Using the questions outlined on the document below and the extra information sheets, research the Anglo Saxons and present your learning in a creative way. Happy researching! 


Finally, remember to stay active! As always, Joe Wicks will be doing PE lessons every morning or if you feel like doing something different one day, take a look at the PE & Sport Blog page which has some more fab ideas for you.
