Week 7: Week beg: 18.05.2020

Home Learning Week 7!

 

Thank you to everyone for sending in your fantastic work via email, Twitter and Dojo. It's wonderful to see all of your amazing work and just how well you are all doing. 

 

Remember, you can always look back and complete activities from previous weeks, or adapt these to suit your current situation, I don't mind!

 

Keep up your fantastic work, and don't forget to drop me a message with any questions or queries. I'm happy to help!

 

This week, I will finish reading The House with Chicken Legs on the stories section of Dojo. I have really enjoyed sharing this story with you all, and will be looking for ideas for our next class read over the half term! If you enjoyed the story too, the author, Sophie Anderson, has another book called The Girl who speaks Bear, if anyone would like to read it!

Topic

 

To finish our topic of Burps, Bottoms and Bile in the final week, please find attached below some different investigations and research tasks linked to the areas of science we have covered. 

 

Have a look at the photos below...can you make a model digestive system? Think about each part and which objects you might use to make the organs!

English

 

This week, the children will be writing a story about a journey through the digestive system!

 

They are going to imagine that they have been ‘shrunk’ and accidentally eaten, and then have to take the journey through the body in order to get out! They will need to use all of their topic knowledge to help them to add the correct factual information, as well as detailed description of what might happen when inside!

Maths

 

This week, the children will be furthering their understanding of using money and finding change. This is a fantastic topic to be learning about at home, as there are lots of practical opportunities, as well as ways to bring it into your everyday life.

 

Children in Year 3 and 4 need to be able to:

  • Recognise the different coins and their values
  • Total money, using the coin values
  • Convert between £ and p, using the correct notation and understanding that 100p = £1
  • Add and subtract different amounts of money, using the correct notation
  • Find change from varying amounts

 

Remember to choose the activities that fit with your current situation best. There are also some online lessons from the Oak Academy and BBC Bitesize to fit with certain tasks.

Thinking back to your learning last week on Explanation Texts, read the text attached below and answer the questions using the text to give you evidence to back up your answers. 

You might know some of the answers already!

Word of the Week - serene

PE

 

 

This week, we have been selected to take part in a county-wide, virtual Cricket competition! This is a fantastic opportunity for some competitive sport, and staying active during lockdown! 

 

For this competition the children will need to complete the cricket events, keeping a record of their best scores on their score sheet (this is also in the attached document). To enter the event you will need to click on the entry form link in the document, this is attached below. From here you will input some information so that we know which school you attend and then attach a link to your score sheet. The document contains QR code links to the relevant documents (you might need to use a QR reader app such as Inigma or QR Reader.)

 

You can also tweet @CGSOutreach when you have submitted your entry (and us as well!)

Music

 

We would love the children of Holy Trinity to take part in a fantastic singing Project! The idea is to help raise everyone’s spirits through singing and help us all remember that our school community goes on, even though we may be apart, whilst offering hope and inspiration for us to look forward to better times to come.

Looking to the Rainbow is a brand-new song from Nick & Becky Drake for schools to perform during the Covid-19 lockdown.

 

If your child would like to be part of the project we will need them to do the following:

 

  • Listen to the song
  • Learn the words off by heart by Friday 15th May
  • Record themselves singing it and send the recording to us
  • Have permission to have this video of them on Twitter and the school website

 

If your child would like to be a part of this amazing project please send an email to the address below stating the child’s name and I will reply sending further details of the project such as tips for filming, how best to get your clips to us, song lyrics and a copy of the backing track to sing along to.

We hope that as many of you as possible will choose to join in. We may not be able to put on an end of term play, or get together for an assembly, but this is something that you can do to make your mark!
