Home Learning: Spring Term Week 2
You have all worked incredibly hard this week. I have really enjoyed seeing your school work as well as the other activities that you have been doing.
This week, I have provided you with five English lessons, five maths lessons and five topic lessons. In English, you will be learning about non-chronological reports. In maths, the Year 5 children will be focusing on multiplication and division facts, whereas, the Year 4 children will look at converting measure and adding / subtracting lengths. In topic, you will have three science lessons (states of matter) plus one music and one PSHE lesson.
Remember to log in to Bug Club to read for 20 minutes every day and answer the questions by clicking on the little green bugs. This is one of the most important tasks for you to complete as it will help you with you comprehension skills. It is also important for you to log in to TT Rockstars daily and practise your spellings for your home learning spelling test every Friday.
If you aren't already, please remember to send your work and activities to me on Seesaw.
Have a lovely weekend, Kingfishers.
White Rose Maths are providing worksheets along with video tutorials which cover the areas in maths that we would normally be doing in class. The worksheets and answers can now be found here on the class page (In the sub-folders below). The videos, which provide an input for each lesson, can be found via the links in the Kingfisher Class Home Learning Timetable at the top of this page.
In English, over the next three weeks, we will be learning about non-chronological reports and writing one of our own. Now, I already know what you are all thinking: I know what non-chronological means! You do! We have had lots of discussions about the word chronological in school. Can you tell someone at home what the difference is between chronological order and non-chronological order?
Usually, when something is written as a non-chronological report, it is non-fictional as well - meaning it is based on something which is true or real. Well, we will be looking at wild cats for our non-chronological reports. Can you name any wild cats?
This week, you will learn about the features of non-chronological reports, the vocabulary used in non-chronological reports and also learn about relative clauses which will be something new for you to use when you next complete a big piece of writing.
You will find all of the links for the learning videos in the 'Kingfisher Class Home Learning' file at the top of this page. All work this week should be completed in your exercise book (which you can collect from school) or lined/plain paper.
If we were in school, we would now be learning about states of matter in our topic lessons. This week, you will be learning about solids, liquids and gases and how the particles form inside each state. You will also find out what happens to these states when they are heated or cooled. The worksheets for these lessons can be found below. The video links for each topic lesson can be found in the Kingfisher Class Home Learning file at the top of this page.
You also have a PSHE lesson based on healthy eating and a music lesson which follows on nicely from your music lesson this week: creating your own piece of West African drumming music.
Don't forget to try the quizzes at the beginning and at the end of these lessons. They will help you remember the important parts of the lesson.
