Hinduism

 

This week we are going to learn about a different religion – HINDUISM.

 

Firstly, please go onto the following website and watch the videos – there are five of them in total.  They are all about Hinduism, from the perspective of children and are full of new and interesting facts and information!

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02n5wvr 

 

Next I would like you to read the information below (Information – An Introduction to Hinduism) and then complete the activities (Activities – An Introduction to Hinduism).

After that, I would like you to research countries around the world where Hinduism is one of the main religions and then find and colour these countries on the World Map – Hindu Countries Around the World.

Hindu Countries Around the World

Work through the PowerPoint – Hindu Holy Books, reading all the information and the complete the Activity – Hindu Holy Books.

Work through the two PowerPoints – PowerPoint 1 – Hindu Gods and PowerPoint 2 – Hindu Gods and Main Beliefs, reading all the information and the complete the activities attached below – Activity 1 – Hindu Gods, Activity 2 – Hindu Gods and Activity 3 – Main Beliefs.

Science                                                              

This week we will learn all about shadows!

 

Before we start, do you know how shadows are formed?

Hopefully we have some sunny weather this week. If the sun is shining will we see more or less shadows and why? Would the shadows be smaller or bigger?

 

Let's find out! 

 

If you can explore this on a walk / going outside and making observations before clicking on the lesson below. Once you have done this it's time to learn a few facts... 

 

This is PART 1 of a 3 part science lesson this week. I will upload Part 2 on Wednesday and Part 3 on Friday! Try to complete this activity before Wednesday if you can. If not, don't worry, just complete the tasks in order.

 

Have you ever thought about the size of your shadow? Have you ever measured it?

It's not very sunny today (Wednesday) but the weather should improve tomorrow if you want to have a go at this.

Take a piece of chalk and mark a spot to stand on. Get someone in your family to draw around your shadow (or you draw around theirs).

Next, return to that same spot at 2 different times in the day and draw again. E.g. 10am, 12pm and 3pm... what do you notice?

You could take pictures and send them to me by email if you like! 

 

Now for the lesson: 

Work through the powerpoint above, on changing shadows. Then have a go at completing the comic strip planning and the results sheet. Have fun!

Part 3

Your final science task this week is to design a poster to advertise Sun Safety 🌞 

 

Work through the power point lesson then design a poster.

 

Finally, over the summer holidays, please take the advise from this lesson and stay safe  in the sun🌞 (when we have some 😉).

Geography                                                                 

We have done lots of work about Europe this half term and last week we looked at different European landmarks. 

Which ones can you spot and remember from last week?

I would like you to choose one EUROPEAN LANDMARK and research it thoroughly.  Then I would like you to complete a Fact File on the landmark you have chosen.

 

Below I have attached the two PowerPoints from last week as a reminder and even a starting point.  I have also included the useful links from last week to help you with your research.

I have been inspired by Ethan to set this work.  He emailed me on Purple Mash a couple of weeks ago, with a lovely story about how he and his sister saved a poorly bee!  They found a bee in their garden, which they thought looked poorly so they gave it some sugar water to help it.  After a while, the bee flew off, feeling much better after drinking the sugar water – they saved its life!

From these comprehensions, you will see how important bees are to the environment and what an important job Ethan and Imogen did!  Brilliant you two – REALLY looking after God’s creatures!  I’m so proud of you.  Also, thank you for sharing this story – it really made me smile!

Before the summer holidays start, I will put some ideas and activities of things you can do in your own garden / outside to help the bees, other minibeasts and the environment!  Have a go – they will keep you busy and help the environment too – everybody wins!

If you still have a copy of your speed times table test, have a go at completing it in 2 minutes.  Your challenge is to get full marks!  If you haven't, ask someone in your family to test you on the times table you are currently working on.  Remember, the challenge is to get 24/24 in 2 minutes.  Email me your scores! Good luck!

Special Places

                                                                                                          

This week we are going to learn about Special Places.

 

Special Places for Jesus

 

Please think about and then answer these questions in your Home Learning book.

 

  • What is a special place?
  • What special places do you have?
  • Are they special to everybody or just you?
  • Why are they special?

 

Next we are going to look at Jesus’ special places.  What might these be?

 

Look at the map below.  On the map you can see the UK in red – this is where we live, remember.  The other red country on the map is Israel – this is where Jesus was born, grew up, lived and died.

World Map Showing the UK and Israel

Work through the PowerPoint – Special Places for Jesus, reading all the information and answering the questions.

 

These are the Bible references in the PowerPoint – Special Places for Jesus, if you wanted to look them up in your Bible or find them on the internet.  Then you can read the stories to remind yourselves of what happens in each of them – you could read one each night, at bedtime!

 

  • Luke 2: 11 – Bethlehem
  • Matthew 2: 23 – Nazareth
  • Luke 2: 41, 46 – Jerusalem
  • Mark 1: 9 – The River Jordan
  • Matthew 5: 1−2 – The Hills Around the Sea of Galilee

 

Did you know, that it is possible today, to visit many of the places associated with the life of Jesus?  They are in, what we call, The Holy Land.  Have you or anybody you know ever been?

 

Please think about and then answer these questions in your Home Learning book.

 

  • Where were the special places for Jesus?
  • Why were they special?
  • Why do you think some of these places are still special and holy today?
  • Why are these places so special for Christians today?

 

Now I would like you to complete the two activities below – the Map Activity – Special Places for Jesus and the Matching Activity – Special Places for Jesus.  Use what you can remember from the PowerPoint and from reading the stories in your Bible / on the internet.  You may refer back to the PowerPoint if you need to remind yourself.  There is also a Map of Israel below to help you to label your own map.  When completing the matching activity, I would like you to please order the events in chronological order when you are either sticking them down or writing them out.

Special Places of Worship

 

Now we are going to learn about special places of worship for different faiths.

 

  • As a Catholic, where do you go to worship God?
  • As a Muslim, where do you go to worship God?

 

In the following PowerPoints, there are six different places of worship, for six different religions.  Have a look at what they are.  Did you already know any?

 

On PowerPoint 1, remember to answer the questions on Slide 9.

On PowerPoint 2, remember to do the task on Slide 8.

Complete the Activity Sheet – Places of Worship, attached below.

Activity - Places of Worship

Next week, we are going to look at one of these faiths in much more detail – but I’m not going to tell you which one!  You’ll have to wait until next week to find out! laugh

European Landmarks

 

We have done lots of work about Europe this half term and we are going to continue the topic this week by looking at and learning about European landmarks!

 

A reminder ...

Map of Europe

What is a landmark?

 

A landmark is something that stands out in an area.  It could be a building, a bridge, a lake or river, a sculpture or something else.  These places might be special because they are big, nice to look at or really old.

 

A landmark makes a place recognisable.  This means you could look at a picture of a landmark and know straight away where it is.

 

Across the world, there are many famous landmarks.  Here are a few of the landmarks I have been to.

 

  • Do you know what and where they are?
  • Which famous landmarks around the world have you visited?

UK

Europe

The Wider World

UK

Europe

This week we are going to look at some of the most well known landmarks in Europe!

  • Do you know any famous landmarks in Europe?
  • Have you ever visited any famous landmarks in Europe?
  • What country were they in?
  • Did you enjoy visiting them?  Why / why not?

 

Below I have attached two PowerPoints.  Work your way through them, reading all of the information and answering the questions.  On the Go Jetters one, there are loads of fantastic links for extra information – make sure you click on them all!

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/pshe-eyfs-ks1-go-jetters-continent-of-europe/zvsd47h

 

I would like to you do the two matching activities below (there are some different landmarks on each document).  In order to be able to complete the activity, you must do your own research on the famous European landmarks.  I have attached two documents of photographs, titled Photographs 1 – European Landmarks and Photographs 2 – European Landmarks to help you.

 

Here are some handy websites too.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/pshe-eyfs-ks1-go-jetters-continent-of-europe/zvsd47h

https://www.kids-world-travel-guide.com/europe-facts.html

Please complete the activities below set by Madam Schofield.

Eating in France / snacks

 

You can learn about some of the most traditional French foods on this page:

https://www.kids-world-travel-guide.com/food-in-france.html 

 

Which foods did you already know about? Which do you prefer? Can you research what "cassoulet" and "croque monsieur" are? What types of English food do these remind you of?

 

Complete this worksheet on French snacks. Most foods will be easy for you to recognise, but you may need to check a few answers in a dictionary or online. Be careful not to mix up "des frites" and "des chips"

 

To order food and drink, you can often simply say the name of food, and add "please" ("s'il vous plaît" in French), for example: "Une pizza, s'il vous plaît!". Practice how you would order the foods on the worksheet one by one in this way

Computing

 

Just for fun! Have a go at complete the '2go' 2Do set.  You can choose any / as many of the activities set under the 2Do.  In completing these tasks you will be practising giving and following instructions within a computing tool setting whilst having fun!  Set yourself challenges.

 

e.g. Can you reach every flower in less than 10 moves?

Wellbeing                                                                   

We are always thinking and focussing on being kind to others ... but how can we be kind to ourselves?

 

Complete the activity below, thinking about how you can be kind to yourself!

Mindfulness

Collective Worship                                                     

One day this week I would like you to start the day by taking part in this Family Liturgy.  Ask the members of your family to gather with you and all do it together!

 

https://www.tentenresources.co.uk/primary-subscription/prayers-for-home/sunday-liturgy-for-families/ 

 

This week it is the Feast Day of Saint Peter and Saint Paul (29th June) and the Gospel is all about a very important job Jesus asked Peter to do!  We think of Peter, the first Pope and the rock on whom God built His Church.

 

We also think of Paul, who travelled far and wide and wrote down many truths about God, so that generations would come to know Him through the Bible.

 

In the Family Liturgy, think about these two men and take the time to reflect on how, even though we’re not perfect, God still calls us to be His friends!

 

There are also some lovely Daily Prayers for Home.  Click on the link below:

 

https://www.tentenresources.co.uk/primary-subscription/prayers-for-home/homeprayer-2020-06-29/ 

 

On the right-hand side of the page are all the dates for the week.  Choose the corresponding day and work through the slides!  The prayers link to the Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul and remind us that we all belong to God’s worldwide family.

English                                                                

  • Reading - you have been set a new Serial Mash book on Purple MashBeth and the Nile’.

Please read Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 and do the two quizzes I have set as 2Dos.

REMEMBER you have 15 minutes to answer the questions!  PLEASE DO NOT RUSH – it’s not a race.  I’d much rather you answer more questions correctly than quickly!

  • Comprehension – I have attached an eBook called ‘The Curse of Cogston House’.

Please read the eBook – it’s quite long so you can do this over the week.  There are two different endings – the ending I would like you to read starts on page 34 and is called ‘The Boys Escape’ – YOU DO NOT HAVE TO READ THE OTHER ENDING!

Complete the comprehension below, titled ‘Comprehension – The Curse of Cogston House'.

The comprehension is actually based on a short extract from the book (not the whole story) so you MUST read the text which comes with the comprehension to be able to answer the questions correctly.

You can actually do the comprehension without reading the whole eBook and then carry on reading the whole book over the week.  We will be setting other work based on this story so you MUST read the whole thing.

Choose which level you normally do, read the text and answer the questions.  Remember to answer using full sentences.

Remember not to peek at the answers until it is time to check your work! wink

  • Grammar

Watch the video below to remind yourself of what conjunctions are – this will help you with Section 5 on the SPaG mat:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-english-conjunctions-with-laura-bubble/zv4hd6f 

Complete the Grammar Mat below (SPaG Activity Mat 4), which has a variety of grammar, punctuation and spelling questions.  Choose which level you would like to attempt and NO PEEKING at the answers! wink

Once you have completed the Grammar Mat, watch the video and complete the activities (Highlight the Coordinating Conjunction and the Quiz) on this website:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/z9wvqhv 

  • Spellings – your spellings have been set on Spelling Shed – please practise these throughout the week.

Miss Moores' Group – please write a sentence for each of your spelling words, then complete a spelling test out of 10.

Miss Hopkinson's Group – please choose 5 of your spelling words to write 5 sentences, then ask an adult to test you on 5 of your words.

  • Writing – your writing task this week is to write your own story ending for The Curse of Cogston House. Use the story plan below to plan your story first. Your story ending 'The Boys escape' must be different to the ending your have read. Think carefully, how else could they escape?
  • Talk to someone at home about your story ending and how it is different to the ending your have read in the comprehension. 
  • Even though your ending will be DIFFERENT, I would like you to 'magpie' and use some of the great vocabulary you have come across in the comprehension text in your writing. Think about the adjectives you could use to describe the house. Think about 'the escape' and how it can be described with good verb choices and adverbs! Good luck! 
  • After completing your planning sheet, write your story ending in your blue books or on one of the storyboard templates below, under the title 'The boys escape'.

The Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul – 29th June

                                                                                                          

Today (Monday 29th June 2020) is the feast Day of Saint Peter and Saint Paul.  Ordinarily, we would have been going to Mass, as it is a Holy Day of Obligation. 

 

Take part in the Family Liturgy – you can find this above, under Collective Worship!

 

Please think about these two Saints and consider what you already know about them.  Make two columns – one titled Saint Peter and the other titled Saint Paul – in your Home Learning book and write what you know about each Saint in their column – without any research – let’s see what you can remember!

 

Below are some videos for you to watch to remind yourself all about Saint Peter and Saint Paul. 

 

Saint Peter

 

 

Saint Paul

 

 

There are loads on YouTube, if you want to watch more!

 

Now think about what you have seen – how much do you remember now you have had your memory jogged?

 

I would like you to think about these two extraordinary men and create a character sketch for both of them.

 

Think about:

  • The stories you have heard about them
  • The facts you know about them.
  • The personality and character of the two men.
  • Think about how know what the two men were like, for example we know that Saint Peter had a bit of a temper as he chopped off a soldier’s ear in the Garden of Gethsemane.

 

Use the attachments below to create your character sketches.  Saint Paul’s is split in half – Saul / Saint Paul – compare his two ‘lives’.

 

St. Paul never actually met Jesus, yet after his conversion, he showed his true faith by following in Jesus’ footsteps and preaching the Word of God to others.  Paul did not just do this at home – he was a great traveller and journeyed all over the world to teach others about God!  Look at the map below, which shows all of his journeys.

Map of Saint Paul's Journeys

 One of the places Saint Paul visited was Thessalonika in Greece and this is where the book in the Bible comes from – 1 Thessalonians – it is full of the Letters written by Saint Paul.  Find this passage in your own Bible or read it below – 1 Thessalonians 5: 12-18.

 

Dear Friends,

 

Help everyone who works hard for you. Love and respect them for what they do.

 

Get on well with one another.

 

Encourage others to work hard.

 

Help people who are afraid.

 

Take care of those who are not very strong.

 

Be patient with everyone.

 

Make sure you and your friends don’t try to get your own back.

 

Always do what is best for you and for everyone else.

 

Most of all be happy. Pray every day.

 

Make sure you say thank you to God for all the good things God gives to you.

 

This is what God wants for you.

 

1 Thessalonians 5: 12-18

 

Talk about this Bible passage with someone from your family and then on the activity sheet – 1 Thessalonians 5 12-18 highlight all of the positive words you can see, in the passage.

Have a go at the following  questions, writing your answers in your blue books.

 

1. What is a light source?

2. What is darkness?

3. How do we see in the dark?

4. Is the moon a light source?

Reflection

 

Today, we are going to learn about reflection and how we see things. 

Work through the information powerpoint below, then watch the video on the bbcscienceclips website.

Remember to do some exercise each day.  There are loads of options for you to choose from online, as lots of people are providing free exercise sessions.  Here are a few examples of some of the things we have been doing:

 

  • GoNoodle is a free website and now a free app.  It has lots of brilliant dance-along songs, yoga videos, mindfulness activities and so much more!  Download the app and try it out!

https://www.gonoodle.com/

  • Oti Mabuse from Strictly Come Dancing has been doing online dance classes, with her husband, Marius.  They have done LOADS of really lovely kids dance classes.  Click on the link below and scroll down a bit to find the kids ones – there’s things like Frozen, Jungle Book, Trolls, The Greatest Showman, Shrek, Mary Poppins, as well as lots of others!  They’re about 30 minutes long and are fab. Have a go!

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC58aowNEXHHnflR_5YTtP4g 

  • Oti Mabuse is also doing a new dancing programme on CBeebies, called Oti’s Boogie Beebies.  The programme is on CBeebies at 8:30am every weekday, but they are all also on iPlayer.  Here is the link

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/m000jsds/otis-boogie-beebies

Collective Worship                                                         

 

One day this week I would like you to start the day by taking part in this Family Liturgy.  Ask the members of your family to gather with you and all do it together!

 

https://www.tentenresources.co.uk/primary-subscription/prayers-for-home/sunday-liturgy-for-families/ 

 

In this week’s Gospel, Jesus said to His disciples, “Do not be afraid.”  This is a message we hear in the Gospel at different times, mainly from Jesus, but also from others.  It’s an important message for us today: it helps us to remember that Jesus is always with us, helping us leave our fears behind and lift our eyes to Him.

 

In the Family Liturgy, take the time to reflect on how Jesus is with us in everything, even our fears.

 

There are also some lovely Daily Prayers for Home.  Click on the link below:

 

https://www.tentenresources.co.uk/primary-subscription/prayers-for-home/homeprayer-2020-06-22/ 

 

On the right-hand side of the page are all the dates for the week.  Choose the corresponding day and work through the slides!  Each day, the prayers look at different times we hear the words, “Do not be afraid,” said in the Gospels.  They help us to apply this message to our own lives.

English                                                                

  • Reading - you have been set Chapter 6 and Chapter 7 (the final two chapters) of your book on Purple Mash – ‘The Ice-Cream Villain’.

You SHOULD have read Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and done the quizzes on these over the last few weeks.  I haven’t had them all handed in, so if your haven’t read these chapters, then please do this first.  I have re-set all five chapters you have read so far as 2Dos, so you can re-cap on the story.

Once you have read Chapters 6 and 7, you then need to answer some questions about them (do one chapter at a time).  Look on your 2Dos for your tasks. 

Scores on the quizzes were much better last week – well done!

REMEMBER you have 15 minutes to answer the questions!  PLEASE DO NOT RUSH – it’s not a race.  I’d much rather you answer more questions correctly than quickly!

  • Comprehension – complete the comprehension below, titled ‘Comprehension – Understanding Social Distancing' (linked to this week’s Writing task).

Choose which level you normally do, read the text and answer the questions.  Remember to answer using full sentences.

Remember not to peek at the answers until it is time to check your work!  wink

  • Grammar

Read the information and watch the video to remind yourself of the rules for using apostrophes for possession (this will help you with Section 1 on the SPaG mat) on the following website:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/zx9ydxs 

Complete the Grammar Mat below (SPaG Activity Mat 3), which has a variety of grammar, punctuation and spelling questions.  Choose which level you would like to attempt and NO PEEKING at the answers!

Once you have completed the Grammar Mat, complete the activities (re-write the sentences and the quiz) on the website also:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/zx9ydxs 

  • Spellings – your spellings have been set on Spelling Shed – please practise these throughout the week.

Miss Moores' Group – please write a sentence for each of your spelling words, then complete a spelling test out of 10.

Miss Hopkinson's Group – please choose 5 of your spelling words to write 5 sentences, then ask an adult to test you on 5 of your words.

  • Writing – your writing task this week is a piece of information writing.

Writing task

Please comolete this over two days, after your comprehension work.

This week's writing task is very much about current issues. We will be producing an information leaflet all about Corona Virus (Covid 19), and how we can protect ourselves and our families from it by following government guidelines.

 

Task 1 - Read the information below on Coronavirus. It is written in English, Italian and Polish.

When you have read the information we would like you to highlight the most important facts you have found out. 

 

In your blue books, please write the title:

Corona Virus Leaflet Plan

Then answer the following questions:

 

What is Covid 19?

 

How is it different to other viruses?

 

What can we do to keep ourselves safe and well?

 

Then, find one more interesting fact of your choice.

 

 

 

Task 2 - How can we stop the virus from spreading?

 

For our writing task this week, we would like you to produce an information leaftlet or poster (your choice), advising what YOU can do to help stop the virus spreading. 

We are very lucky that most children do not get too poorly from the virus, but it is EVERYBODIES JOB to try to stop the spread of the virus, so that we can get back to normal as soon as possible.

 

Please read the PowerPoint below.

 

After reading this, use your knowledge from this weeks comprehension and yesterday's task to help you to create an advice leaflet or poster, that we could use in school, for our return to school. 

Mrs Hodgson and I will choose our favourite leaflets / posters and share them with Mrs Robinson / Mr McRae. 

We are aiming to find one that can be displayed around school in Spetember!

 

Be as creative as you like! You must write in English, but you CAN make it a dual language poster if you like!

The Prodigal Son

                                                                                                          

Using your Bible (or the Internet), find the parable of The Prodigal Son - Luke 15: 11-32 (or see below).  Read the story.

 

The Story of the Prodigal Son

Luke 15: 11-32

 

11 Jesus continued, “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger son spoke to his father. He said, ‘Father, give me my share of the family property.’ So the father divided his property between his two sons.

 

13 “Not long after that, the younger son packed up all he had. Then he left for a country far away. There he wasted his money on wild living. 14 He spent everything he had. Then the whole country ran low on food. So the son didn’t have what he needed. 15 He went to work for someone who lived in that country. That person sent the son to the fields to feed the pigs. 16 The son wanted to fill his stomach with the food the pigs were eating. But no one gave him anything.

 

17 “Then he began to think clearly again. He said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have more than enough food! But here I am dying from hunger! 18 I will get up and go back to my father. I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven. And I have sinned against you. 19 I am no longer fit to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”?’ 20 So he got up and went to his father.

 

“While the son was still a long way off, his father saw him. He was filled with tender love for his son. He ran to him. He threw his arms around him and kissed him.

 

21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer fit to be called your son.’

 

22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattest calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 This son of mine was dead. And now he is alive again. He was lost. And now he is found.’ So they began to celebrate.

 

25 “The older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants. He asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come home,’ the servant replied. ‘Your father has killed the fattest calf. He has done this because your brother is back safe and sound.’

 

28 “The older brother became angry. He refused to go in. So his father went out and begged him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve worked like a slave for you. I have always obeyed your orders. You never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But this son of yours wasted your money with some prostitutes. Now he comes home. And for him you kill the fattest calf!’

 

31 “?‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me. Everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad. This brother of yours was dead. And now he is alive again. He was lost. And now he is found.’?”

Then watch the following videos:

 

 

After that, complete the sequencing activity, by putting the pictures in the correct order to tell the story of The Prodigal Son.  There are three different levels, so choose the one which best suits you - 1 star is the easiest and 3 stars is the hardest.

Science / Computing

 

Comparing Features of Plants

We have been having fun learning more about plants for this terms science topic. Well done to everyone who sent me your science work last week. Today, we will be thinking further about the features of plants. 

For this weeks task, I would like you to explore your garden or have a nature walk. In doing so, we are looking for different types of plants. Flowering plants, non-flowering plants, ferns and ever-greens.

I have attached some files below that will help you identify different plants on your walk / hunt.

 

Take pictures of the different types of plants you find if you can, or sketch 3 of them whilst out on your walk /hunt.

 

After your walk, choose 3 different types of plants and draw them in detail, carefully. Label the parts of the plants with what you know.

 

Watch the video on the link below: https://youtu.be/cgVlrtGnG6s

 

You could use what you have learnt from this to create a fact file about the different plant types in your blue books or print off the fact file booklet template, design your front cover, then complete the facts and drawings about 3 of the plants you have found. 

 

After completing your science, move onto your computing task... Branching database... once you understand this you should be able to create your own branchingdatabase about plants.

Enjoy!

I'm looking forward to your creativity on this! 

Branching Databases

Sorting fruits and vegetables

I have set you two 2do's on purple mash.

 

First, have a look at the fruits branching database activity and answer the questions.

Then, complete the vegetables branching database activity.

 

In your blue books, can you answer these evaluation questions?

 

1. What is a branching database?

2. What new things have you found out from the fruit and vegetable activity?

3. How are they useful in science? 

 

Finally, can you create your own branchingdatabase in your blue books for our current science topic?

 

E.g. You could compare flowering plants with none flowering plants.

 

Plant themed extra fun learning tasks 

Geography

 

As it was World Oceans Day last Monday (8th June 2020) and we did some work on this, I thought that we would take a break from learning about Europe and learn about the oceans of the world.

Oh, Sacred Heart of Jesus,

I place all my trust in You.

Oh, Sacred Heart of Jesus,

Dear Year 3,

 

We hope you are having a lovely weekend so far, despite the rain!

 

Well done for your wonderful work throughout last week – it was great to see your work and thank you for working so hard!

 

Next week is going to be a bit different.  Your work will not be set each day, instead all your week’s work will be set on a Sunday night / Monday morning and you will decide which tasks to do when.  However, make sure that you do one English, one Maths and one other task each day so you don’t get behind.  You will need to complete the English and Maths tasks in the order they have been set, as they follow on from each other.  The tasks will be similar to those you have already been doing, so don’t worry you’ll know exactly what to do!

 

When you see the list of tasks on a Monday morning, talk about them with somebody in your family and decide which ones you are going to do on each day.  This will help you to be organised!  Below is a table which you can print out and write your own timetable on.  You could even tick off the tasks as you do them!

 

You have all been doing AMAZINGLY so far, so keep up the hard work, stay motivated to learn and do your VERY best!  Remember to send us photographs of the work you have completed – we love to see them!

 

If there is anything urgent, then please ask your mum or dad to ring the school office and the message will get passed on!

 

It is very strange being in a class with only a handful of children and you are all being missed!  Hopefully we can all see each other soon!

 

Take care everybody and stay safe!

TODAY'S TASKS

 

Collective Worship

 

As you know, Sunday was the Feast of Pentecost.  This week we have already recapped the story and done some work on this.

 

I would like you to start the day by taking part in this Collective Worship session, about receiving the Holy Spirit.  You could even gather together the members of your family to take part in it with you.  Listen to the stories and think carefully about the questions.  Take the time to reflect on the Holy Spirit and what it means to us.  Think about how the Holy Spirit is inviting us to act today - will we share, forgive, help others, reach out to others, encourage others, be kind? ... The list is endless!

Getting to Know Each Other

 

For your final task today I would really like to get to know a bit about you all!  Please could you write a little bit, all about yourself.  If you want, you could also attach a photograph.

 

Here is some information about me, to give you an idea!

 

My name is Mrs Hodgson and my birthday is 7th April (I'm not going to tell you which year! wink).  I have been a teacher for nearly 16 years and I love it!  I always wanted to be a teacher, even from being very young!

 

I live in Ramsbottom, with my family.  My husband is called Andy and we have two little girls.  They are called Catherine and Emma.  Catherine is four years old and she will be starting Reception in September.  Emma is only just one, her birthday was on Friday.  We also have a cat, who is called Bert.

 

I love spending time with my family and really enjoy playing games with them and going for walks.  One of my favourite hobbies is reading and I always have a book on the go.  At the moment I am reading the last Lord of the Rings book, which is called The Return of the King and is written by J.R.R. Tolkien.  It is really long and has nearly 800 pages - and NO PICTURES!

 

This is a photograph of me and my family.

 

This is a photograph of me and my family.

Don't forget to say your prayers, thanking God for sending the Holy Spirit to us to give us the strength we need to be kind, caring and loving; living our life in Jesus' footsteps.

ASCENSION DAY ART

Thursday 21st May

 

Good morning Year 3. Please begin with your daily prayers.

Today is a special day in the Catholic calendar, it is Ascension Day, otherwise known as Holy Thursday. Do you know what we think about on this day? 

Our first task today is to find out a little more or to recap what we know about Ascension Day and it's importance. Read the information below, then answer the comprehension questions in your blue book. Challenge yourself to either the 2 **or 3 *** questions if you can. Remember those full sentence answers!

This activity has also been created in Polish too, so if you can read Polish then have a go at the Polish version of the work if you like! 🙂

Ascension Day Art

Now you know all about Ascension Day, can you create your own Ascension Day piece of art?

This example is from Pintrest and is what we would have been doing if in school. The picture of Jesus is cut out and made movable by being stuck to a lollypop stick.  You can either have a go at this yourself, just draw a picture or be even more creative! When you have completed your task, email me a picture if you can! 

Spelling shed - please spend 15 minutes practising your set spellings for this week. Challenge yourselves through the levels in the games. Has anyone got full marks on the extreme level yet?  

Maths - more fractions!

 

Today I'm setting you a fractions challenge. Based on the work we have done so far in our fractions home learning tasks, have a go at the fractions assessment questions below. 

Just do what you can do and let me know what you have struggled with. Please email me to let me know your strengths and targets for fractions so far. Also, in your blue books, can you evaluate how you feel about  fractions now, answering these questions: What do I now know about fractions  that I didn't before? What have I got better at? What would I like to improve on? 

Wednesday 20th May

Well done for all your hard work so far this week,

here are your tasks for today:

 

Task 1 - This week is Mental Health Awarenes week, with the theme being kindness. This is a very important time to think about what kindness means; how important it is to be kind; and how acts of kindness help with our own happiness. 

Have a little look at the video link on Kindness:

 

 

 

https://youtu.be/Qcyc68d6OAk

 

Now, have a look at the Power Point below. 

Task - write a post card to some one who may be lonely during this period of lockdown. This could be an elder relative, cousin, friend or neighbour. Your choice. Think about how your kindness may help them. 😇

 

Task 2 - Geography

Last week I asked you to complete some map work on your purple mash 2dos. This week, I'd like you to watch the following video and try to learn the song: 7 Continents of the World.

When you have watched it, can you list the continents in order, from biggest to smallest, then write me one fact about each continent. You will find these facts in the song. Please complete this work in your blue books, under the title 'Continents of the World.'

Tuesday 19th May

 

Good morning Year 3, please begin with a morning prayer.

 

This week I am working in school, teaching some of the key worker children as well as setting your online tasks, so if you email on purple mash, there may be a slight delay compared to my usual quick replies :) 

 

Well done for your French work yesterday, some of the children in school with me joined in too 😁

 

Yesterday's French task

Today's tasks:

 

Spelling shed - I set your new spelling on spelling shed from 3.30pm yesterday. They are listed below.

Please spend 15 minutes playing the games on spelling shed for these spellings. 

Task 2 - class rules

Please read the Power Point below. Then answer these questions in your blue book. 

 

Why are rules needed?

Why would we need rules in place before safely re-opening school?

TASK 3 - Maths 2do

Please complete the fractions revision 2do on purple mash. Here you will look at the bar model and decide which statements are true or false.

Remember, a full bar = a whole.

4/4 = 1 whole

Task 4 - for your final task today, I'd like you to focus on your fitness and exercise again. This time with yoga. I will be completing a different 'cosmic yoga' each day in school this week. Today I'd like you to have a go if you can. GOOGLE COSMIC YOGA and find one you fancy. Yesterday we had fun doing the Yellow Brick Road one. Email me to let me know which one you did. 

If you cannot do yoga today, please complete a different exercise and let me know what you have done.
