Home Learning Week 4!
Well done! I know it probably feels like a lot longer, but we have reached week 4 of Home Learning! You are all doing a fantastic job!
Don't forget to look back at previous weeks and you can always complete any of those tasks before moving on to the next lot of work, I won't remove any of it, and the topic work especially will support your child's learning in their English tasks.
What do Christians learn from the Creation Story?
This term, the children will be learning more about the story of Creation from the chapter of Genesis. They will learn about why they see God as the Creator and what parts of the story might be important for Christians living today.
This week, the children will be using extracts from The Demon Dentist by David Walliams to support them in their learning of writing using suspense techniques. Authors use these techniques to create mystery and make the reader want to know more!
If you are reading The Demon Dentist yourselves at home (which I know some of you are!) Brilliant! If not, do not worry, I will share the extracts you will need for your learning.
Audible on Amazon is currently free for 30 days, and you can access the audiobook for FREE during that time.
Please make sure that you take the time to finish your Teeth Factfiles from the previous week before beginning these tasks.
Reading a Calendar
This week, the focus in Maths will be reading a calendar!
When understanding the calendar, children need to be able to articulate the following:
How many months in a year, plus spell their names correctly and in order
How many days in each month
How many hours in a day
How many days in a week, and their names and order
How many days in a year and a leap year
Be able to work out duration of events using a calendar
Understand the terminology of decade, century and millennium
Read the Parent Notes first, this will give you some support in helping your child to access this learning!
There is also a Sumdog Lincolnshire Contest this week, as well as a Challenge based on this week's learning!
See attached below some Reading Comprehension tasks for the children to complete depending on their Guided Reading Group.
If you haven't completed your Scholastic Lexille Test yet, please log on and do this, instructions in the previous week subpage.
Don't forget to keep reading any books you have at home and posting my your book reviews on the blog, Dojo or Twitter. You can also check to see if it has it's own quiz on Scholastic, well done to those of you who have completed quizzes for your home books already!
Now we are spending lots more time at home and on electronic devices, it is important to understand how to stay safe while using them. Follow the link below for a game and video all about staying safe online.
