School Closure- Weeks 12 and 13

Monday 29th June- Friday 10th July

I am really looking forward to welcoming many of you back to school over the next two weeks. As many of you will be in school, I will not be posting work daily to google classroom so for those of you at home I have added some home learning below. I will still be ringing home to keep in touch and hope to see a few more of you back from 13th July for some fun activities and leavers events!

 

Home Learning Websites (English, Maths, Topic)

 

https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/schedule The Oak Academy is an online school that has been set up to support children with lessons from home. Each day click on this link- choose your year group and work through the lesson for the day. You will need a pen and paper and a screen to watch the lessons on. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6vpnrd The BBC have also produced daily lessons. These are useful if you don't have access to a computer or there are lots of you trying to share one! You can use your computer or TV to watch the lessons and there are also radio programmes. You'll be able to watch Bitesize Daily on BBC Red Button from 9am- 11am (then on iPlayer) 

 

Writing

https://authorfy.com/10minutechallenges/  Bestselling authors and illustrators set 10 minute challenges for you to complete.

https://www.pobble365.com    Pobble is a great resource if you need a little inspiration for your writing.

 

Online Games

https://ttrockstars.com Carry on with ttrockstars for your multiplication fluency. 

https://spellingframe.co.uk You can either practise the spelling or take a test with those words. All words are read aloud and provided within a sentence for context.

 

Topic

In school we are continuing to study the Tudors. You could research a number of things linked to the Tudors such as

- How did the Tudors begin?

- Why did Henry VIII have six wives?

- What were Henry VIII's palaces like?

- What things changed whilst Henry VIII was in charge?

- What kind of punishments did they have in Tudor times?

- How did the reign of the Tudors end?

- What was the Spanish Armada?

Present your findings however you like!

 

Science

The science challenge for June is still running and there is also a new one for July (see below)

School closure Week 7

(18th May-22nd May)

 

Congratulations on absolutely smashing SATs week! I always knew you would! I hope you enjoyed the activities, I have certainly enjoyed looking at all your showstopper bakes and the other challenges you have completed! 

This week it is "back to normal" so in Maths we are revising percentages, in Literacy we are starting a new unit "A City of Silence" and with spellings we are recapping some key suffixes. 

We will also be doing some more work on our science topic of "Living Things and their habitats", moving onto looking at plants and the other categories of living things. As always, use google classroom for daily activities but there are some optional extras below. Have a lovely week- keep smiling :)

This week is VE Day which will be celebrated on Friday. You could celebrate this yourself at home by holding a themed day and join  in with the Nation's Toast. To do this at 3pm you should stand up and raise a glass of a drink of your choice while saying the following toast: "To those who gave so much, we thank you."

You might like to also bake some cakes and make some bunting to add to your celebrations!

15.4.20 - 24.4.20

Hi Landacre class! 

Well done to those of you who are logging on daily to complete home learning through google classroom and LBQ. You are all doing a fantastic job and I am so impressed! Please log on to the main google classroom page each day where there will be a list of things you could do. Don't feel you have to complete all of the activities every day (the things I post are just a guide) but it is good to keep your skills ticking over and it will make the transition back to school a lot easier!

 

Other things you can always do, if you want some extra work are below:

Maths –  Please continue practising your times tables on TTRockstarz- remember you can always ‘rockslam’ your friends (and teachers ).

Spelling - Follow the links for lots of online games: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zt62mnb OR https://spellingframe.co.uk/ - select your year group and practise some of the prefix/suffix sections.

Reading- Please make sure you keep reading at home each week- there is also a range of audio books you can listen to online and ebooks available (look on the parents’ home learning tab).  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC9XXoFSuEuhuA5a-yTklZcyjk8Bv3i-b. I am now posting a chapter a day of our class book online too!

Science- Our next science topic is living things and their habitats. You could start your own mini project on your favourite animal and produce a leaflet, poster, powerpoint or website all about it. Include information like the animals characteristics, its life cycle, how it is adapted to its environment etc. I will be giving you more guidance on this over the next few weeks. 

Art- Take part in the Beaford Arts photography collaboration -‘North Devon Here and Now’.

The details and instructions can be found here: https://beaford.org/

Also don't forget to send me your toilet roll challenge!!

Keep smiling!

Mrs Gardner

Hi Landacre Class

Well done for completing the first week of home schooling for many of you! I am so impressed by the number of you logging in to google classroom and completing work daily- you are doing a brilliant job and it is a great way to keep your skills going. If you ever want to do more work than I set, remember if you look on the home learning section of the school website, there are links to lots of different activities for each subject (especially some good ones for Art and PE).

Remember it is now the holidays, so try to enjoy the break and do some of the things that you maybe don't normally have time for- cooking, reading, playing board games and maybe even sorting out your bedroom! 

I will be phoning you the week after the holidays to check that everything is ok and that you are managing to do some schoolwork but until then, keep in touch with each other using google classroom and keep smiling :)

This week has been all about gathering animal ideas for our art work and learning about refraction in science

This week we have been planning and running our own experiments into shadows and having a go at writing Kennings

Another jam packed week! A visit from some animals at Exmoor Zoo and gathering ideas in our sketchbooks for our next piece of art work.

Science- this week we have been investigating how shadows change in size.

Making blind spot testers in science

In science this week we have been building our own mirror mazes, trying to reflect the light off mirrors to hit a target. Som groups managed to bounce the light off of 8 different mirrors!

Welcome back

We have been straight back into learning, discussing our new text “A wizard of Earthsea” and freezeframing key moments as well as experimenting with rays of light in science.

It’s Christmas! We have had a lovely week, finishing off our Maths and literacy units as well as making Christmas cards and enjoying Christmas film and pj party. 

Homework

I am not setting revision book homework over the holidays as I am hoping all the children can have a restful break and enjoy some family time. However, just to keep them ticking over it would be good to do a little bit on TTRockstars, Mathsframe or ks2 Bitesize and please encourage them to keep reading! Our next topic is Attenborough so if you can find time to watch one of his many documentaries that would be great too. 

HAPPY CHRISTMAS from Mrs Gardner and Mrs Davey

Homework- As the children have worked so hard all week, I have not set them homework from their revision books. Instead I would like them to relax and READ as reading is the paper we are currently finding the hardest (and also because there is nothing like curling up and reading a good book when the weather is miserable!)

After working hard all week on our SATs practice papers, we enjoyed an afternoon making potions linked to our literacy text Harry Potter: A Journey through magic.

This week we have been freeze framing moments from our key text in Literacy, reading our new books and pretending to be “Darwin’s finches” in Science.

This week we pretended to be predators of the peppered moth in Science! We had to grab as many “moths” as we could with our “beaks” in a minute. We found generally that it was easier to prey on those “moths” who did not blend into their background although we are also not sure that all our results are reliable for a number of reasons so will be continuing with this next week.
