Just because school is closed, it doesn't mean that there isn't learning to be done!
On this page, you will find:
I have included some 'easier' and 'harder' maths and English tasks - choose the ones you think are the best for where your learning is at the moment. Some activities within each lesson also include 'mild', 'hot' and 'chilli' tasks - again choose the ones that suit you best but remember to give yourself a challenge too!
Maybe some of you could time yourself on the maths fluency and/or arithmetic activities?
I'd like to draw your attention to the live PE sessions which Joe Wicks is going to be holding every weekday morning 9am on his Youtube channel (The Body Coach TV). This is free and the sessions will last for 30 minutes. Whilst schools are closed, this is a fantastic and exciting activity for you to be involved in.
Year 6 - remember to send me some photos of what you are producing during your home learning sessions and if you have any suggestions for anything else you would like me to add to our class page, email me through our class email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe and well and good luck with your home learning!
P.S. Over the coming weeks, I will be add links to useful online resources - keep checking back as I will be adding them as and when I find them.
A few notes about home learning for week 2 (week beginning 30.03.20).
I have moved Week 1 activities to the bottom of the home learning blocks so that the most recent week's work is nearer the top of the page to make it easier for you to find.
I have given you a choice of two 'harder' English packs - one of them continues with Harry Potter but if you would prefer a change, try the other pack.
I have also added a science experiment and an outdoor learning activity for you to have a go at.
I hope you are all well, staying safe, completing some school work every day and remembering to get some exercise!
P.S. I have added a couple more fun websites for you all to take a look at: out of the ark music website and the British Red Cross acts of kindness calendar. Enjoy!
Please find below the Y5/6 andY3/4 statutory spelling lists.
End of Key Stage 2 SATs include a Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar test. Pupils will be tested on a random selection of words from across the Key Stage lists including derivations of words. For example, pupils may be asked to spell: embarrass/embarrassment, persuade/persuasively, persuasion, occupy/occupation, etc.
Please help your children to learn these spellings by helping them with their weekly spelling tests, using words in sentences and understanding definitions of words. Many thanks.
A friendly reminder that children should be reading at home at least four times a week to an adult or independently. Parents should initial all reading activities in Homework Diaries which will be checked in class on Friday mornings and a house-point awarded to children who have noted reading at home four times.
