Kingfisher Class Year 4 and 5: Home Learning

Kingfisher Class Home Learning

 

This page will be updated weekly with new activities for the Year 4 and 5 children of Kingfisher Class to complete for their home learning.

Monday 1st June

 

Hello Kingfishers! 

 

Welcome back - I hope you all had a lovely half-term! I can't believe that we are in Summer Term two already. This half-term we were supposed to learn about the history of the Olympic Games as the Tokyo 2020 Olympics were taking place over in Japan. However, the Olympics have been postponed until 2021 so we will learn about the history of the Olympics next year when we can watch the events in school at the same time. smiley

 

This got me thinking about other topics that we could focus on instead: Ancient Greece! We can learn about how the Olympics started all those years ago and, at the same time, learn about the Greek gods and how the Greeks changed the world. I thought this would be a perfect final topic for you.

 

Your English lessons this week focus on Mount Olympus, the home of the Greek gods, as well as the myths 'In the Beginning' and 'Pandora's Box'. You can also work on your new topic in our history lesson about the important events in Ancient Greece and, to top it all off, you can have a go at creating your own Greek vase design in art.

 

I hope you enjoy your first week back. Don't forget to log in to Bug Club every day and complete your TT Rockstars. Our target to beat this week is 7,920 correct answers! If you all join in, I think you can beat it. smiley Remember, we would love to see the work that you complete at home so don't forget to share it with us on the blog or with me on Seesaw.

This week, you will be learning about Mount Olympus and the Greek gods as well as focusing on the Greek myths 'In the Beginning' and 'Pandora's Box' which I have added to your Bug Club accounts for you to read.

History Home Learning - WB 01.06.20

Monday 18th May

 

Hello Kingfishers!

 

I am so pleased to see more of you logging into Bug Club and TT Rockstars again! This week, as a class, you managed to accumulate 7,752 correct answers on TTRS. That is a phenomenal number. I wonder if you could beat it as a class next week? We would need almost everyone joining in to beat a score like that. I've seen some fantastic comic strips this week which have been so much fun to read and I've really enjoyed seeing the nature mandalas and leaf tiles that you have created.

 

I have prepared some more work for you to complete next week which you can find below.

 

Don't forget to look out for the weekly challenge which will be ready for you during the week.

 

Have a lovely weekend!

Hello Kingfishers!

 

What a super week! We've had lots of new bug hotels popping up in Coleford and the surrounding villages, brightly-coloured bunting hanging around our houses, Kingfishers making delicious cakes and tasty meals, and some of the best art recreations that I have ever seen. laugh I'm glad that you had so much fun creating them.

 

I have prepared some more work for you to complete next week which you can find below.

 

Don't forget to look out for the weekly challenge which will be ready for you during the week. Enjoy your VE Day parties everyone and have a lovely weekend.

Hello Kingfishers!

 

A huge well done to everybody in Kingfisher Class. You have all been working really hard over the last two weeks. It is great to see your work being posted to the blog and to Seesaw and it's lovely to see you commenting on your each others' work. smiley I have created some more work for you to complete next week which you can find below. As we should be having better weather this week, I have included more practical lessons. Lessons where you can work in the garden and in the kitchen which will be a nice change from working on a screen or on worksheets everyday. 

 

Check out the optional art activity this week. I think you will have a lot of fun with this one. laugh

 

We will have another Bishop Henderson Weekly Challenge for you on Wednesday. Have a great weekend!

Instructions can be written for a variety of reasons. You may use instructions to help you build a new piece of furniture, to help you fix something that is broken, to make your favourite food or to even help you find your way to another world. The Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 examples below have been added just to provide an example - to show you how you could lay your work out and the vocabulary that is often found in a set of instructions. There is more information in the document 'LO: English - Instruction Writing'.
