Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we will be tuning into Joe Wicks' workout sessions at 9am. They are short 20 minute workouts that are a great way to start the learning day and wake your bodies and brains up. Don't worry if you miss a session at 9am, you can always join in online at anytime, as the sessions can all be found on his YouTube channel. These will be in addition to our Tuesday morning PE lessons.
For each maths lesson, there will be a video to watch first with an online activity to complete. Today, I have pre-recorded the maths lesson using a PPT. It is a first for me, so there might be a few teething problems to start with. There will also be additional activities below the video link to work through as well. The activities are labelled as, 'Bronze, Silver and Gold' as they get more challenging at each level. Your child only needs to complete one activity level, although they might like to try a more challenging level as well. Please focus on the quality of your child's work, and ensure that they have set their work out neatly and fully answered each question. You can print the sheets out, if you like, but this is not necessary, as your child can work from the screen onto paper.
We are starting a new English topic, which is based around owls. Today you have a choice of writing activities to do. Have a look at the task sheet and choose the activity that you find the most exciting. Remember to plan out you writing and to think carefully about each sentence. You will be continuing this activity for tomorrow's writing lesson as well, so focus on the quality of your writing rather than the quantity.
As part of our weekly spellings practice, and to help develop neat handwriting, there will be a handwriting task where the children will need to copy out their spellings following the example. There will be different activities depending on the spelling/phonics group that your child is in, this is the same as their spelling homework group.
Each day, I will be adding some reading resources to the class webpage, choose the level of text that is appropriate for your child from the Gold, Silver and Bronze options. The text shouldn't take very long to read, but your child might need to read and then reread the text before answering the related questions. The answer sheets are for an adult to check the answers if your child is working independently. Please keep encouraging your child to read as often and as widely as possible in addition to the tasks set online.
This term, we are learning about Christianity and in particular, The Easter Story. Today, we are learning about The Last Supper. There are two short videos to watch, once you have watched the videos I would like you to write about a special meal you have had. You can title it 'My Special Meal'. Encourage your child to write about why it was special, why they enjoyed it and how it made them feel. They can then draw a picture of their special meal.
It is very tricky to learn music at home on your own. Luckily, Somerset Music have produced a video so that the children can continue their exploration of music, even during these difficult times. Use the link below to access the music lesson for this week, where you will be exploring rhythm.
