Week beginning 18th May 2020
Dear Sparrow Hawks,
We hope you enjoyed the nice weather this weekend and that you are ready to tackle a new week of home learning…!
- English: five new tasks on ‘The Arctic Circle’, including a balanced argument, persuasive leaflets, designing a box and writing your own version of the story.
- Maths: daily lessons will be uploaded with links to the White Rose Maths website. PLEASE NOTE: The website link will take you to White Rose’s current unit but we are working 2 weeks behind. Therefore, please go to the bottom of the page and find SUMMER TERM WEEK 3 w/c 4th MAY. That will have the work for this week.
- Maths & English CGP books: please continue to work through these as and when you can. You can use the Maths books to support the learning you’re doing on White Rose or to practise skills we have covered so far (place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, line graphs, fractions). For English, please work through it at your own pace, choosing tasks you want to practise.
- Wider curriculum: remember that we have a list of ‘topic’ tasks, which are optional. We would encourage you to have a go at some of the tasks as they may give you some variety and will help you develop skills in other subjects, too.
Lots of you are continuing to take part in Joe Wicks’ PE sessions every morning, which is great! Keep it up! There is also a great website which shows live webcams of a range of birds nesting in and around the UK (Mr Peaple’s new lockdown hobby is bird watching!) - https://www.birdfood.co.uk/webcams
If you love reading, you can log on to David Walliams' website and listen to him reading some of his books - https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/
There is a new Wellbeing activity at the top of the class page, which focuses on the ‘Ultimate Super Power’…attention! You will also find the previous three packs which may help your child(ren) to feel calmer and more relaxed in this unusual time that we currently find ourselves going through.
Please do continue to send your work over to Miss Hodges – she would love to see it! firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember to ask for help if you need it, via email or our LinoIt pages.
Stay safe, take care and be kind and helpful at home. We miss you so much!
Miss H, Mrs B and Mr P
