Home Learning: Week beginning 20th April 2020

From this week we are providing further choice for families in terms of home learning.

We have had lots of positive feedback about the weekly thematic activities which families can engage in together – particularly appreciated by families where siblings can work together, rather than trying to juggle different learning activities for children of different ages. We will therefore continue to provide this option on the home page of our website. This week’s theme is ‘Trees’ – Mrs Grant has coordinated lots of lovely activities on this theme that we hope our children will enjoy.

We also had requests from a few families asking for more structured ‘lessons’ and ‘worksheets’ for their children so our teachers in Years 2 – 6 have been working at home to provide this option for those families. (Reception and Year 1 teachers are posting activities appropriate to their age group). These will be posted by Monday morning each week, with activities for English, Maths, PE and another subject each day for parents to set their children in each age group. We advise that no activity should be longer than a ‘normal’ lesson time of 60 minutes.

None of this is compulsory. Families should adopt what works well for them in their situation. They may choose either option or choose to do bits from both. It is completely up to them.

In our phone calls over the last fortnight many families apologized for not doing the ‘home learning’, telling us that they have been busy doing ‘other’ things like playing games together, baking, doing their own ‘projects’ according to the children’s interests, gardening together etc. This is absolutely fine! This is such a rare opportunity for families to spend quality time together – it is lovely to hear that you’re making the most of it.

There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in this situation. Please don’t worry about your child falling behind others – everyone across the whole country is in the same boat. We will pick up from where the children are at when they return to school, whenever that may be. All schools will be doing the same.

Anyway – if you would like to engage in the thematic activities on Trees – please go to the Home Page of the website and click on the link there.

If you would like to engage in the more structured work for your child – please click on the links below:

Easter ideas: updated 5.3.20

Try these maths challenges:

The Easter Bunny can only carry 3 eggs at once. He has to choose 3 eggs from the following colours: Red, Green or Blue.

How many possible ways can the Easter Bunny carry the eggs?

(He can carry the same colour more than once)

 

At 3 local supermarkets the following deals were on offer for Easter Eggs:

                   A   3 for £5                 B  4 for £7       C  2 for £3.50

If I were to buy 12 Easter Eggs, which supermarket would be cheapest?

 

   A large packet of mini eggs contains 27 eggs. There are 80 children in KS1. How many packets of mini eggs should I buy so that each child gets 2 eggs?

                          I will post the solutions next week

 Why not try to make your own symmetrical egg pattern like this and challenge someone to have a go!

egg 2

 

Some more ideas for you to try :

Create your own robot like The Iron Man- draw or make it. What can it do? Is it helpful? Write your own story or comic strip about your robot.

A great website for year 5/6 maths is : http://www.iseemaths.com/   Go to the home learning page

I was thinking about how there are less aeroplanes in the sky at the moment and whether you could test 3 different paper planes. How far do they go? Newsround produced a short clip on how to make the ‘perfect plane’.     https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/26050831

Reading:  read books, comics, magazines or listen to audio books. Why not have a story time, taking it in turns to read a story to each other.

Writing:

  • Create a book review of one of the books you’ve read or listened to, to inspire others to read that book

  • Write a story/playscript on the prequel to the Iron Man – who made him? Where had he come from?

  • Write an adventure/sci-fi/fantasy/ story or playscript. You could also provide the illustrations.

Maths:

  • Log onto mathletics and do any set tasks and enjoy revisiting areas we’ve completed this year. You could try other topics too such as shape, angles or measure

  • Keep practicing your times tables

  • Use purple mash -they have lots of fraction games to practice

Other ideas:

Sketch or draw something amazing!

Play a board game with someone or complete a jigsaw. You could even create a board game yourself.

Coding with purple mash or try some of the other fun areas on the site. Why not practice your touch typing; a great skill to have. You could try the Hour of code.

Play in the garden and make up a game that could be used in our play leading sessions when we return. Write an instruction card for it.

Help in the kitchen to cook a meal or bake and write down the recipe to share with others.

Watch something wonderful (A wildlife documentary / Blue Planet etc) and discuss it with others

Listen to different types of music… you could even have a dance!

 Remember Eagles’ I sent an exercise book should you wish to record anything. I look forward to seeing them.

 Passwords for Purple Mash and Mathletics have been given out and most of the children do know them. A wealth of companies are developing activity/home learning packs and videos which are being shared widely on social media....these are a valuable resource if your child wishes to use them and you find them useful.
