Here is an RE update for this week Our diocesan advisers have been putting together a page of resources which include craft activities and other lovely suggestions, based on Bible stories. It also has the saddleback kids video clips which we enjoy using alongside scripture in some of our RE lessons. Have a look… https://www.bdes.org.uk/resources-for-prayer-and-learning.html Father Peter is also livestreaming daily masses from our church through Facebook.
We hope you are all keeping well and happy at home. We are all thinking of you and your families. Mrs Jones, Mrs Platt and Mrs Smith.
Here is some work for week beginning 30th March 2020.
Continue to do Times Tables Rockstars. http://mathsbot.com has starter activities which will help your mental maths. You can set your own levels but try to challenge yourself as well.
There are some good maths work sheets on https://www.cimt.org.uk/projects/mepres/primary/index.htm . This week you can revise work on negative numbers. Go to Year 5 practice book A pages 21 - 24. If any of the work is too difficult, remember to take small steps to learn it or leave it and try again later or another day.
If you work through the negative numbers quickly, some new learning is work on angles. Use the cimt website above, book 2b and start at page 1. You will need a protractor. There is an online tutorial showing how to use a protractor on https://www.mathsisfun.com/geometry/protractor-using.html.
It’s important to keep practicing your neat handwriting while you are at home. This week, write a letter, perhaps to a relative who is on their own or to a friend who is not well. Remember to write in the 1st person and use adjectives and adverbs to describe the activities you have done. Then decorate them with pictures and diagrams of the things you’ve done. If you don’t have a stamp or can’t post it through the person’s door, you could save it until you can meet up again.
You could also keep a diary of your week at home, recording some of the fun activities you’ve done. In a diary, you can also record your feelings. You could save these until you return to school and share them with your friends.
Carry on coding. In class we had lots of fun learning about coding using code.org and scratch. The children can continue to work through the tutorials on these websites.
Log on to http://charranga.com and continue with the music homework.
It is the season of Lent so please remember your Lent Promises.
Next Sunday is Palm Sunday. Write a play script and rehearse it during the week ready to perform it with your family on Palm Sunday. For ideas you can watch https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zwfy4wx.
You could also make palm crosses for your family. Instructions are on http://request.org.uk/teachers/teaching-resources/festivals-resources/easter-festival/2013/08/20/how-to-make-a-palm-cross/
Last week the children and staff who were at school have exercised at 9 o’clock every morning with Joe Wicks. I know some of you have been doing this at home too. https://www.thebodycoach.com/ or just google joe wicks.I'm pleased to hear that some of you are doing your daily walk or bike ride.
The Phases of the Moon. This is a really fun lesson to help you understand why the moon looks different shapes in the sky at night.
Go to https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/oreo-moon/en/ . Watch the clips then make the phases of the moon with oreos. If you don’t have oreos, jaffa cakes work well. Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEdVnt05lFs .Oryou can use any round biscuits. You could then take pictues or make a poster.
Best of luck everyone. Have a good week and stay safe.
