Home Learning

We understand that this is an unsettling time and we hope having access to these ideas may help you create a sense of routine and support your child’s learning.

Equally we are aware that people have caring commitments and that every family will be doing their best day by day and as such,

not every activity may be completed.  

 

If you would like to use them at home, some daily prayers can be found here: Morning Prayer Lunchtime Prayer End of the Day Prayer

Remember to check the Catholic Life Page for weekly Gospel Readings, reflections and activities.

 

Final week of Term 6

We hope you have a wonderful summer holiday and cannot wait to see you all again in September!

 

Wednesday 15th July

No video calls this week as we hope to see you all on Transition days!

 

Reading

This week, it’s time to sit back and relax – your task is to ask someone to read you a story! You are welcome to record this and put in on Seesaw, but you do not have to, and you must have permission from the person reading to record them,

 

Writing

Today you are going to be performing your poem!

Video yourself doing so and put it on Seesaw for your teacher to see.

 

Spelling - Year 3 and 4:

This week we are revising all of the spellings we have learned so far this year (and some things from Year 2!)

Have a go at this spelling game on TopMarks.

 

Maths

Don’t forget your rapid recall and games on Abacus!

 

Year 3&4:

Today’s challenge is to create as many different pictures as you can using these shapes.

You can only use each shape once in each picture, but they can be rotated as many different ways for each new picture.

You can either cut the shapes out, or draw your own. What is the highest number of different pictures you can make?

 

Topic:

Present everything you have learned about your class’s country. It is entirely up to you how you do this – it could be a PowerPoint (be aware that these cannot be uploaded to Seesaw, so you will have to email it to your teacher), a word document, a brochure, a piece of writing, a piece of artwork or a video, or anything else you can think of! Show off all your fantastic South America knowledge for your teacher to see.

 

AND FINALLY, HAVE A WONDERFUL AND WELL DESERVED BREAK!

Each aeroplane can carry 56kg, how much can be carried in total?

If 2 people can fit in a hot air balloon, how many people can fly in them?

Writing

Carrying on with our work on poems, this week you are going to be writing and performing your own poem about your class!

 

Today’s task: read this poem and write your own about your current class.

Feel free to magpie ideas, but remember to make it your own.

 

We are the number one

That’s what they say

We can beat you any time

Any other day

We are the class 4-A

And we rock the school

Everyone consider us

To be very cool

But we aren’t boastful, we aren’t proud

And neither are we vain

But people still think

That we are quite insane

Our class is cheerful & funny

Everybody’s kind, each other no one hates

That is why I think

My class is really great!

This week we are doing maths through art!

Today’s task is to choose up to 10 colours to create a picture by colouring whole squares on the table. If you do not have a printer, you can draw the table yourself. It is 10 squares by 10 squares (100 total).

You then have some questions to answer based on fractions about your picture.

Share your masterpiece with your teacher on Seesaw.

 

RE:

This week we are learning about Islam. Watch this BBC clip to get you started.

Read through this PowerPoint on Muslim Prayer, and complete the timetabling task within it.

Then, you can create your own prayer mat using this template, or you can draw your own.
