Today’s Live Session 11AM

Today’s Live Zoom Subject: English

Today’s independent work will be to write about what you have done during lockdown. I would like you to do this on your own. As it will allow me to see your great writing so that I can give you a big ‘well done’ and also see what you may need a bit more practise with.

Today’s live lesson will remind us of the things we have covered during our live lessons so that you can aim to include them in your writing today!

There will also be a game or two with it being our (hopefully!) last ever day of home learning!


Early Bird Maths

We begin each day with ‘Early Bird Maths’. It is to support children in becoming more fluent with aspects of maths that we have learnt. Similar ideas are repeated so that children become familiar with the four basic calculations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).

Please see below for answers to Thursday’s Early Bird. Please self-mark your answers.


PE (9:30 – 10:00)

Please find below the link to Harrogate Town AFC’s live workout. It will take place every Friday at 9:30am. If you would like to take a picture of yourself taking part, please send it to me to pass on to Harrogate Town AFC. They will give out prizes each week for their favourite photographs!

Whole Class Reading (WCR)

To practise our reading; becoming more fluent and increasing our understanding, we take part in WCR daily. Our objective this term is to retrieve information from a text and record it through writing. This is tricky stuff so there will be lots of opportunities to practise this. As well, there will be a daily challenge to come up with your own questions.

Have a go at the attached, read the text and answer the questions about this piece of text. Then, can you think of any other questions you could ask?


Maths

Follow the instructions below and complete the worksheet[s].

Before choosing a maths activity from the links below, think about how you feel about the topic. Are you feeling green, orange or red?

I am feeling red: This is okay! It just means you need some more practise. Have a go at the 1 star challenge. If you can do this and think you could try the 2 star then have a go at that, too!

I am feeling orange: This is okay! It just means you need a little more practise. Have a go at the 2 star challenge. If you can do this and think you could try the 3 star then have a go at that, too!

I am feeling green: Great! I’m glad you feel that you understand the topic. Have a go at the 3 star challenge!

Watch the video below entitled “Draw 2D shapes” via the below link. Listen to the narrator. He will ask you some questions, pause the video when asked and have a go yourself!

Friday’s Arithmetic Quiz

Today’s arithmetic quiz is the only piece of maths work that I require submitting.

Every week we complete an arithmetic quiz. It is important that you do this on your own without help from anybody else so I can track progress over the weeks and spot any gaps in learning or questions that children have found hard, so I can go over these in our maths lessons.

Please ask an adult to mark your arithmetic quiz when complete and send to me at r.place@meadowsideacademy.org

Please see the quiz in the file below:

Big Idea – DT

Next week in school, we will begin making our own moving car. We will learn how to use different tools, including glue guns, hammers, nails and saws.

Your job for today is to research different examples of people making toy cars. You can find lots of examples of videos on YouTube.

Write down materials that you think you will need to make your toy car.

Discuss with an adult:

Have these materials changed since your design on Monday? Why? Why not?

Are there any ideas you particularly like that you have researched?

A YouTube link you may wish to watch first is…


BIG IDEA – PSHE

In the file below, you will see several pictures of gardens.

Play some calming music as you look at each picture.

Discuss with an adult what you like about each garden. Choose your favourite.

Now, close your eyes again. Imagine a garden. It is a beautiful ‘garden of dreams’. It can have whatever animals, birds, plants, flowers you like in it. You can make these animals up, too!

On a piece of paper, design your own bird that would live in the ‘garden of dreams’. Your bird can be as colourful as you like. It can look like a real bird or it can be completely made up.
