Home Learning: Spring Term Week 7
You have all worked incredibly hard over the last six weeks. It is not easy when you have to learn at home instead of in school but you have all shown me that you really enjoy learning new things and challenging yourself to complete your work to the best of your ability. Now you have a week off to relax! Well done, Kingfishers.
For your learning on your first week back after half term, you will have five English lessons, five maths lessons and five topic lessons. In English, Year 4 children will be continuing their poetry unit with John Lyons. Year 5 children will be continuing their unit where they will be learning about newspaper reports with a superhero theme. In maths, Year 4 children will have a week recapping on their understanding of fractions before moving on to some more challenging fraction work, while Year 5 children finish off their statistics unit. In topic, you will have two history lessons (Romans), one R.E. lesson, one art lesson and a music 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 your 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 great week, 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, this week, Year 4 children will continue their poetry unit based on the work by poet John Lyons. This week, you will be developing your vocabulary before having a go at writing your very own free-verse poem.
Year 5 children will be continuing their unit this week where they are focusing on journalistic writing. This week, you will be learning how write an opening paragraph to a newspaper report and how to write a recount of events.
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 on lined/plain paper.
In our first week of spring term 2, we will start our new topic based on the Romans. This week, on Monday and Tuesday, you will learn about the Roman Empire and how it became so powerful as well as finding out about Roman general, Julius Caesar.
In addition to your history lessons, I have also included an R.E. lesson for you to complete. Your R.E. lesson is timetabled for Wednesday afternoon where you will continue to learn about Neviim and Ketuvim. You will then move on to your music lesson, on Thursday, where you will explore percussion. Then, on Friday, you will have an art lesson where you learn about an artistic term called foreshortening.
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.
