Good morning – and welcome back (…virtually).
Your activities will be slightly different this week and next (ahead of a potential return to school on the 8th – depending on what is announced today, of course). The activities over the next couple of week will all be based on thing you have previously learnt and are more like practice (of key ideas) than new learning. The idea behind the change is that these activities will hopefully help best prepare you to returning back to school as normal. These activities may seem a bit basic at times, but by practising them over the next couple of weeks, it will hopefully ensure these key ideas are fresh in your head. One really important thing with this is that you read any of the feedback/marking given to your work to make sure you know whether you understand what you are doing.
Please don’t rush through everything as quick as you can!
Here is a basic overview of the week. As always, you don’t need to follow this if you don’t wish to.
In maths, you won’t have EBM as usual, but our main activities will be very similar to EBM – but broken up into smaller “chunks”. Today’s task is a mini-overview which covers all the key areas we will be revising over the next 2 weeks.
I would like you all to have a go at Q1 and 2 of the extension questions. For those of you feeling up for a challenge, you could also have a go at Q3 and 4. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, you could also have a go at the challenge question.
In English, you won’t have S/F/RO as usual, but our main activities will be very similar to S/F/RO and will recap some of the key knowledge which will be useful for you to revise before returning.
Today’s activity looks at the four basic word types and how they are used.
Over the next couple of week, we will have a WCR session every day. These will all link to a certain subject. Today’s is a science text on the different states of matter.
Here is your spelling activity for today: -ant – (3)
Our afternoon sessions over the next few week will be focussing on certain skills which will be incredibly useful for us to practise before returning. Today’s will involve your attention and listening skills around the theme of states of matter.
Your task is to watch this video (UP UNTIL 10:58) and answer the following questions Remember, the aim of this is to practise our listening and attention skills: the answers are all mentioned in the video.
Here are the questions you need to find the answers to: Questions on State of matter video – P1
Remember, you only need to watch the video to 10 minutes and 58 seconds (when it goes onto a section called “measurement mystery”).
We won’t be having any P.E. (physical education) sessions over the next couple of weeks. However, we will be doing a some daily physical activity sessions. Out of interest, the difference between physical activity and physical education is that physical activity is simply completing some exercise – whereas physical education involves specific learning about a physical skill, activity or sport.
For your daily physical activity, I would like you to run, cycle or walk every day (it could just be around your garden – even if it’s quite small!). Then, if you could send me in the distance you have completed (it could be an estimate if you’re not sure), that would be great. A picture of you completing your activity would also be great if you can! The recommended daily physical activity for children (aged 6-17) is at least 60 minutes over a whole day, so for this particular physical activity you could aim for at least 30 minutes.
