Hello everybody, hope you are all well and have managed to undertake the tasks I have been setting you. Remember Brian Cox has some wonderful videos about space and these are available on BBC iplayer. Also available on the iplayer are Bitesize videos if you need any more information about space, living in France or any of the Maths and English topics we cover.if you take part in the Joe Wicks's videos in the mornings then keep doing that, otherwise why not try just dance. The videos can be played on youtube and you 'just dance'.
I look forward to seeing photographs of your work on our Twitter page.
Stay at home and Stay dafe.
This is a suggested timetable, you can alter it to fit your own particular schedule.
Hope you are all staying well. This term we will be changing the focus of our Geography and Science lessons. In Geography we will look at our Environment and how we can look after it, whilst in Science we will study more about forces.
This week's maths lessons are back to White Rose, so the layout should be familiar. There is a link to the videos. just click on the appropriate lesson, watch the video, then complete the day's work. The English lessons are from Hamilton trust and they too have a powerpoint to watch, then tasks to perform. Have a good week, remember to keep posting photos on twitter.
This week's work is revision of relative clauses, if you have difficulty remembering, just look back to the first week's English work to help. Again there are powerpoints and worksheets to complete. Additional help is available on BBC bitesize.
Science Continuing our topic of Earth and space, we will be looking at how we have 'day and night'. There are some creative ideas that you might like to do too. How about creating a sundail in your back garden and Tweet the pictures to out Twitter page.
This week's lesson is about using evidence to understand how we knew the earth was round before we were able to see that. I have also included a set of activities related to our space topic that you might like to try
Here are the spellings for the week, remember practise them every day. Choose 2 words per day and find the meaning of them using a dictionary (remember to look up the root word) and write them in a sentence. There are activities on the Spelling Shed website to help practise these words too.
I have attached a Talk for Writing unit that should last for the half term. Do not attempt the whole unit in one week, make sure that for each task you collect all the information you need before completing it.
The topic for this half term is Earth and space. All the information you need has been included in the home learning packs that you already have, however I will be setting specific tasks for the week and adding extra resources for you to use.
This weeks lesson is about the phases of the moon. Have you noticed how the moon doesn't look the same shape each night? The following powerpoints will explain this, When you have studied them, use the cycle template in your pack to write/draw an explanation of each phase.
Task 2 - Use the internet to find the time the moon rises and sets each night and keep a note of it.
Linked to our study of France I would like you to create a poster about a French artist (there are many to choose from), when they are completes ask your parents if you can tweet your work to our twitter page.
In the coming weeks there will be lots of different art work that we will do.
