Tuesday

Hello everyone!

Hope Monday went well and you have managed to get started on the leaning activities set? 

Monday was such as a beautiful day, did you manage to get outside in the fresh air, perhaps go on your trampoline or kick a ball around the garden? 

It is a good idea to use either create a timetable for the day or you can use the suggested timetable that was provided.

Remember if you haven't collected your home learning books from school yet, they are available each day on a table on the school front playground. There is just two children who need to do this in our class. You can arrange for someone to collect these for you, if you are at home self-isolating. 

 

Today we have some more learning tasks for you to complete. Try and start each day we an active start as it helps to wake you up for the day ahead. Why not do a physical task outside? It'[s going to be another dry and sunny day. smiley

 

Detailed below are your tasks for the day: 

 

Tuesday's Learning tasks:

1. Start your day with an Active Start there are some great links in the 'Resources and Weblinks' section on our main class page. One of the links is Joe Wicks - who will be doing a live PE session for children at 9.00am everyday on You Tube. 

2. Finish any activities that were sent home with you (Easter booklet and maths sheets).

3. Read your book for 20 minutes.

4. Complete a maths quiz on diagnostic questions. 

5. Maths: Statistics – we have been looking at different ways of presenting data, our last lesson focused on pie chart. Below you will find a document to revise the pie charts (pages 32-36), re read this and complete the questions on the documents called: ‘Task A: Tuesday pie chart questions’ and ‘Task B – Tuesday pie chart questions’. Answers will be uploaded next week for you to self-mark.  

6. Complete the word of the day activities - see below. 

7. Continue researching ideas for a creative project on either Vikings or the Anglo-Saxons - more details to follow!

8. Visit Active learn website and select a maths and a SPAG activity to complete.

9. ART – last week we started looking at the work of Albrecht Durer – a German artist from over 500 years ago. Have a look at the document ‘Albrecht Durer art lesson 1’ then either using the information from the document or from your own research, record five interesting facts about him. Why not choose something from nature to sketch such as flowers or trees in the outdoor environment.

 

10. Remember to build in some quiet time, creative time and outdoor time!

 

Have a good day!

 

Mrs Ashby and Miss Barrett
