Half Term

Well done everyone. It has been a challenging half term, trying to get to grips with new technology and a new way or learning, but we made it through!

 

Here are some optional half term challenges for you and your family. Remember, you should only be socialising with the people you live with.

1) Did you know pancake day is Tuesday 16th Feb? Why not get create with some pancake making together.
2) Camping – in your home! Why not make a den or tent and have a night ‘under the stars’ in your own home…
3) Did you know Wednesday 17th Feb is Random Acts of Kindness Day? Why not write a letter to a family member telling them how much you love them? Or have a video chat with someone? What other kind acts can you think of to do?
4) Why not have a home cinema day? Choose a family film, maybe get some snacks and drinks ready, and cosy up together.
5) What about learning a new song or dance that you could show your family or someone using a video chat?

Have a wonderful half term everyone and I will see you back in zoom school on 22nd Feb.

Monday 4th January

Good Morning All.

 

I hope that you had an enjoyable and safe Christmas holiday.

I am posting some work on here for you to do today. We will then talk about it this week.

 

Did you know today would have been Sir Isaac Newton’s birthday?

Have a look at this information about him…

Can you now use this information to write an information fact file about him? Here is a writing frame you can use to help you if you need.

For maths, I would like you to practice your focus times table. Use the game ‘Hit The Button’ to help you.

I would also like you to remind yourself of how we round. Here are 3 sets of questions for you, followed by the answers.

Update!

We are at the end of the first week back after half term, and the children have come back ready to learn which is fantastic!

 

This week we have started thinking about Armistice Day, and written poems. Remembrance Sunday is this weekend, and in school on Wednesday we will be having a virtual assembly to mark this important date.

 

Today we have also had a conversation about what this lockdown means. Schools remain open, which means I still get to see these wonderful faces everyday in the week, but usual lockdown rules still apply: children should not be mingling outside their households, they should not be out to play unsupervised, and ideally time spent outside of the house environment should be limited. This will help us all stay safe.

Well done Leopards! A wonderful half term.

Make sure you keep reading throughout the holiday, and go on bbc bitesize or discovery espresso if you want any further challenges.

Optional work for home

We have had a wonderful week this week, beginning our learning about inspirational black figures as part of Black History Month. We even had a zoom workshop with Anna Mudeka, a Zimbabwean musician living in Norfolk, who told us stories and other aspects of her heritage.

 

We also begun learning how to add fractions with different denominators. If you are looking for work to do at home alongside reading and spelling, practising this would be very beneficial for the children, as havingĀ  secure understanding of this before we develop it further will really help them. They have been using multiplication grids to help them, while they are still learning their times tables.

Here is an explanation of what we have learnt, and some possible questions you could do at home.

Transition: Day 5

Friday is here! You only have today and Monday left of your primary school lives!

It is important, as you get ready to move on, that you remember what superstars you are SO I want you to use this star, or draw your own, and put your name in the middle. Then, in each of the points of the star, I want you to write something about you that makes you special and the star that you are.

Transition: Day 4

For the final 2 days of transition we are going to think specifically about your new start at high school.

 

Today, I would like you to think about first impressions. How are they important? What influences a first impression? What kind of a first impression do you want to create with your teachers?

 

Then, create a plan of how you are going to do this.

Are you going to try and contribute carefully in your lessons? Or maybe you will wish them a good morning or afternoon as you enter the classroom? What about making sure that any homework in done to a high standard and on time?

 

You can produce your plan however you want: a poster, bullet points, a contract for yourself.

Perhaps you could put this up somewhere in your room to remind you of what you want to achieve.

Transition: Day Three

Today, you are going to make something that you can have to help remind you how to be resilient.

Make a paper origami game with four numbers on the outside. Then either four or eight difficult feelings (for example alone, worried, jealous, tired) on the inside folded sections. Under each emotion (under the flaps) word put ideas for things to try to help with these emotions.

Transition: Day Two

Have you all thought about what you would like to achieve whilst at high school?

As we have discussed before, goals take time, and the path is not always smooth. It is important to beĀ resilient.
