Daily work updates

Monday 30th March

Hello everyone. Welcome to your second week of learning from home. How are you doing? Today I would like you to:
 

1. Do something active. I do Joe Wickes at nine. Some of my family have been learning to dance with Oti Mabuse (from Strictly Come Dancing). Her turotials are fun because they are based on Disney songs. Search for her youtube channel or type in this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC58aowNEXHHnflR_5YTtP4g 

 

2. Practise your spellings. Read them, look up what they mean and write a sentence with each spelling in.

 

3. Open the English powerpoint for today from the school website or Seesaw. Follow the steps it tells you to take. These include playing a dictionary game, summarising what has happened in GMT so far, reading chapter 5 of GMT and writing down and looking up any words you have come across that are unfamiliar to you. Complete your English task from Seesaw or the school webpage. Take the extension challenge if you would like to.

 

4. Complete one of your CGP reading homeworks.

 

5. Log onto times tables rockstars and spend some time on there. Alternatively, chant your times tables like we do in class.

 

6. Complete the arithmetic questions in the basic skills powerpoint. If you can’t remember how to do one of the questions, post me a question about it or look it up online.

 

7. Read the information in the maths powerpoint that is on the class webpage or on Seesaw. It is about converting between units of time. Do your maths task.

 

8. Do something creative. Try making an everyday object colour wheel. Look at the example in the activity on Seesaw.

 

9. I challenged you to start to think about our next Science group and to research one vertebrate group and tell me some facts about them. It could be fish, mammals, birds, amphibians or reptiles. Maybe don’t send me any pictures of snakes though; I am not good with snakes! Present your facts to me in any way you choose to. If you have done this, look up the other vertebrate groups. When you have looked up all the different groups, there is a vertebrate sorting activity to try on Seesaw.

 

10. Spend some time outdoors.

 

Remember to send me whatever you do for English and Maths. Remember that you can also send me some pictures or messages to update me on what fun you have at playtime.

Hello everyone. How are you doing? Last work update of week one. Today I would like you to:
 

1. Do something active. Don’t forget that you can do a live session with Joe Wicks on his The Body Coach TV channel on youtube. You may like to try Go Noodle.

 

2. Ask someone to test you on your spellings.

 

3. Read chapter 3 and 4 of Goodnight Mr Tom. Make a set of 10 comprehension questions about these chapters. Type them up on Seesaw along with the answer for each. Maybe I can post some so you can try each others’.

 

4. Complete the noun warm up activity in the English powerpoint from below or from activities on Seesaw.

 

5. Think about Little Weirwold, the village Willie has moved to. Think about what the village looks like and what its surrounding countryside looks like. Draw it on a piece of paper or on the drawing tool on Seesaw. Write three expanded noun phrases, 1 simile, 1 metaphor and 1 example of personification to describe the village.

 

6. Complete your English task from below or from Seesaw. 

 

7.. Do a times table test. I like to use times tables speed test.

https://www.timestables.co.uk/speed-test/ 

I select random tables.

Let me know what score you get.

 

8. Read the basic skills information in the pdf below or on activities on Seesaw.

 

9 Read the information about reading scales and solving measurement problems in the pdf below or on activities on Seesaw. Answer the measurement maths questions. There are some extension questions that you could try too.

 

10. Do something creative. We haven't done any music yet. Have you ever watched stomp? They make music with everyday items. Look them up on youtube and watch some of their videos. Can you make me a stomp video? You could bash different tins or sweep with different brushes.

 

11. Do your Geography work. Your job is to look up the different natural resources and what they are used for. I will post the different sheets- you got a hard copy in your home learning pack. After this is completed, pick a country and research the natural resources found there. You could pick more than one country and compare their natural resources.

 

12. Spend some time outdoors.

 

Remember to send me whatever you do for English and Maths. Remember that you can also send me some pictures or messages to update me on what fun you have at playtime.

Hello everyone. How are you doing? Today I would like you to:
 

1. Do something active. Don’t forget that you can do a live session with Joe Wicks on his “The Body Coach” TV channel on Youtube. Alternatively you could do Just Dance from Youtube; I sometimes like to pick an upbeat song on Youtube and just dance to it myself.

 

2. Practise your spellings. Look at them, cover them, write them, check them. Repeat the process if you get any incorrect. Can you write them backwards as an extra challenge?

 

3. Read chapter 2 of Goodnight Mr Tom. Answer the questions in the English PowerPoint on a piece of paper.

 

4. Watch the videos in the English Powerpoint on the class website or look up some videos of people recounting what it was like to be an evacuee. I have uploaded some videos to Seesaw. You might like to do some research about evacuation online. Pretend to be an evacuee who has moved to Wales and get someone at home to hot seat you, asking you some questions about what evacuation has been like. Complete one of the three different evacuation tasks from Seesaw or from the school website.

 

5. Go on times tables rockstars or hit the button.

 

6. Use the powerpoint to do basic skills- adding and subtracting mentally. Have a go at each of the questions on a piece of paper. You can post me what you do. I have converted the powerpoint to a Seesaw file in case you can’t access PowerPoint.

 

7. Today for maths I want you to teach me. Find as much information as you can about imperial units of measurement. Find out about the measures of weight, capacity and length and how we convert between them. I want you to teach me about what you find out- will you post me an explanation video? Will you send me a poster?

 

8. Do something creative. When I was in Sudley yesterday, we made fortune tellers. I will post instructions for them to Seesaw. You could do one of these and decorate it in creative time. If you don’t have coloured paper, could you colour in some paper of your own?

 

9. Do your independent writing. Your task is to write a letter to your family at home pretending that you have been evacuated to Wales. There is an example letter on Seesaw and on the school website. There is a list of informal letter features on Seesaw and the school website. There are three differentiated task sheets for you to read before you begin your letter. Send me a picture or a Seesaw note that contains your letter.  I am hoping to read lots of detail and see lots of emotion.

 

10. Spend some time outdoors.

 

Remember to send me whatever you do for English and Maths. Remember that you can also send me some pictures or messages to update me on what fun you have at playtime.

9. Do something creative. Could you get some leaves from the garden and make a pattern from them? If not outside, could you get objects from your house and make a picture out of them on your floor? You could arrange them in the colours of the rainbow? Could you use lego to create a picture on your floor?

 

10. You could do your history work today. Could you tell someone at home everything you know about the history of medicine? Look up medicines in different time periods and pick one time period to research in more detail. Pick a significant medical scientist and research their life, writing a report about what you find out. You could make a horrible histories style video about the history of medicine. If you finish all of that, we will be learning about Britain during World War 2 as we study Goodnight Mr Tom. Prepare for that by writing some questions about evacuation and researching their answers.

 

11. Spend some time outdoors. Will you go for a walk? Gardening is good exercise. I need to get rid of some weeds from my garden. Are there any jobs you could do in yours?

 

Remember to send me whatever you do for English and Maths. Remember that you can also send me some pictures or messages to update me on what fun you have at playtime.

 

I am not around today. I am at the Sudley hub. I will respond to all posts tonight.

Here we go: day one of school from home. Today I would like you to:

 

1. Do something active: run around the garden, watch a Joe wicks video, dance with Just Dance or Go Noodle. Remember that I gave you a list of active things to do- parents can find these in the home learning pack.

 

2. Practise your spellings. We are on Spring 2 Week 5. Look at each word, write it down and think about what it means. Look up any of the words you don't know in a dictionary. Spare spelling sheets are available on our class web page. 

 

3. Read the information in the powerpoint below about apostrophes. Alternatively, watch some online videos about them. Complete your apostrophe task. You can chose whether to do one star, two star or three star. If you are able to, post me a copy of your answers on Seesaw.

 

4. Complete your CGP homework reading test. Read you library book for fifteen minutes and write or answer some questions about it.

 

5. Log onto times tables rockstars and spend some time on there. Alternatively, chant your times tables like we do in class.

 

6. Read the information in the powerpoint below about converting measurements. Alternatively, watch some online videos about converting metric measures. Complete the measurement task sheet. Again, pick whether to do one star, two star or three star and send me a copy of what you do if you can through Seesaw. 

 

7. Do something creative. Why not make a rainbow to pop in your window to cheer everyone up?

 

8. Start your RE task. This is described on your home working task sheet in your pack. Do some research into the different religious festivals. Pick one that you like the sound of and write some questions to research about it. You can start to research if you want to.

 

9. Do something outdoors.

 

I am only expecting you to post/send me the English and Maths tasks that you do. You can edit them on Seesaw or can put your work in a Seesaw note to send to me. You can photograph them and upload them or get a parent to email me them. Any RE work that you do, keep it saved in your house somewhere safe.


Play times are over to you- will you challenge someone at home to put on as many pairs of socks as they can in 30 seconds? Will you face time someone from school and share play together? Will you play the game I taught you in class? Will you begin a tense and competitive game of Monopoly? Let me know what you get up to by sending me photographs of fun!

 

Good luck today. Have lots of fun.
