WB 27.04.20 Week 4
Update - 01.05.2020
Hello Pumas and Parents!
Can you believe it's May already? I'm really not sure where April went to, even if it did feel slow at times!
I'm really impressed with all the excellent work you've done this week and it's been so great to hear from so many of you and see pictures of what you've been up to. It really sounds like everyone has been extremely motivated this week and that you've all enjoyed making a start on our Anglo Saxon topic by producing lots of really creative work - well done!
Have a well deserved rest this weekend and I'll post next weeks learning onto the website on Sunday evening so that it's ready for you on Monday morning!
I hope you like the new layout of the class page and the jazzy rainbow themed heading!?
Stay safe everyone,
Hello Persevering Pumas!
Welcome to Week 4 of home learning, I can't believe so many weeks have already passed and I've been so proud of how much effort and enthusiasm you've all been putting into your home learning so please keep it up! It is fabulous to see so many of you enjoying the learning we should have been doing at school, as home and still having lots of fun whilst learning. Hopefully, you'll find the activities in store for you this week just as exciting.
As always, continue to send photographs and updates of your week to me at the tier group email address along with any questions you have. Read on to find out about what you'll be doing this week!
Stay safe and have fun,
In maths this week, we are finishing our work on decimals by rounding decimals and looking at halves and quarters in detail. Then, we will begin to apply our knowledge of decimals into our new topic on money, where we will look at pounds and pence and ordering money.
As we've been following over the last few weeks, to support your learning, 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 new skills and a worksheet for you to complete.
As always, 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! We are on Summer Term, Week 2 this week.
Last week, you were asked to create a rain stick as part of your DT learning. I received so many fantastic videos and photographs of your completed projects as well as comments from your grown-ups about how much you'd enjoyed making them, that I decided to link this week's English work to your rain stick project.
With this in mind, you're going to write a set of instructions this week detailing the steps you took to create your rain stick. If you did not make one, you could either make one this week before writing your instructions or imagine the steps needed to make one. Please see the document below for extra information about the different tasks involved in your English work this week. You will also find details about this weeks Spelling Shed and Bug Club activities in the document and as always, please continue to read your favourite books at home too!
Topic - History
This week, we are going to be starting our new topic, which is all about the Anglo Saxons. I'm 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, I would like you to investigate the question: Who are 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. This could be to:
Complete a double page spread in your home learning book.
Create a poster
Create a word document
Make an iMovie
Make a fact file
Write and illustrate some fact cards
Create an information leaflet
Topic - Computing
I know that lots of you have already been using technology and a computer, laptop or iPad to support with your home learning so far, which is fantastic, however, this week's computing helps to enhance another computer based skill. To help improve your coding and problem solving skills on a computer, I have set a series of activities 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!) Have a go at the activities which interest you the most.
Please find below some useful PE links.
Remember Joe Wicks is live at 9am every morning on his Youtube channel and if you're after extra inspiration Ellie and her family are uploading a daily active video to their family channel.
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
This week's image comes from Joe Todd Stanton's 'Kai and the Monkey King'.
- Make a sock puppet dragon.
- Can you see the giant grey hand? Draw the rest of the creature.
- Design a dragon and the treasure it protects.
- Research pop-up designs and make a pop-up dragon.
- Draw yourself as the character Monkey King.
- Design the Monkey King a new outfit.
- Make a fact-file about dragons.
- Write about the journey to the top of the mountain.
- List as many books and films as you can think of which include dragons/serpents.
