Week Beginning 13.07.20
We've almost made it to the end of term!
This will be the last home learning page in this format. At the end of the week, we will publish one more with activity ideas for the summer holiday. We are looking forward to welcoming everybody back to school in September.
Write a letter to your new teacher!
This is your chance to write a letter to your new (or old!) teacher telling them everything they need to know about you. Your teacher would like to know about you, your family, hobbies and interests. It is also important to include information about your school life. Which subjects do you enjoy and feel confident about? Which subjects do you find challenging? If you are returning to the same teacher in September, what would you like to tell her about your learning during lockdown? Have you learned a new skill or deepened your understanding of any subjects at home?
A template is provided for those who might like a little more support.
KS2 Word Lists
Way back in March, when school closed, we gave you the KS2 spelling lists. As we have reached the end of term, we thought it would be a good idea if you took another look at these lists and decided which words you know and which ones you still need to learn.
In the attachment below, the list in the yellow box on the left are the year 3/4 words, which you might want to revise, and the words in the blue box are the year 5/6 words.
How often have you noticed that there are numbers around the place that follow one after another 1, 2, 3 ... etc.? Sometimes they appear in reverse order when a countdown is happening for a launch of a rocket. But usually they happen in an order going up, like when you read through a book and notice the page numbers. These kinds of numbers are called consecutive numbers, you may have heard of the word before - it simply means that they are whole numbers that follow one after another.
This investigation uses the idea of consecutive numbers and gives us other numbers to explore. You may very well discover things that no one else has discovered or written about before!
How can following God bring freedom and justice?
You may be aware of the 'Black Lives Matter' demonstrations which have taken place all over the world in recent weeks, and have been covered in the news. There are many people who are working hard to bring this campaign to everybody's attention.
There have always been people who have been prepared to campaign for what they believe is right. This week we are going to ask you to explore key people and charities who campaign or have campaigned for justice.
Now that we have completed our science topic on Evolution and Inheritance, we have attached a link to to a website that has all sorts of ideas about investigations that you might want to try out. You may have tried some of these at the beginning of your home learning experience.
Romero Britto: Scribble Art
As so many of you have enjoyed the Romero Britto artwork, here is an additional task that we thought you might like to try.
