Skylarks   

Hi Skylarks.

Happy Holidays to you all. We hope you enjoy some special time with your families over the next two weeks and a new set of Home Learning activities will be published on 22nd April. If you would like some fun activities to keep you busy, have a look at these Easter activities, there is a range to hopefully keep you entertained.

I have loved hearing that you are all keeping busy through the guestbook comments and the photos on Instagram are wonderful. Keep leaving comments and uploading your photos, I really enjoy reading and seeing what you are all up to. I am missing you all.

Well done for being such great super heroes staying at home! 

Enjoy the lovely weather, have fun and most importantly stay safe.

Miss Trevis

Home Learning Tasks

01.04.20

Hello again Super Skylarks.

I hope you are all doing well! I must say it does feel particularly strange not being at school but I hope you are all taking this opportunity to use the resources added to our page, and any you may find of your own, to continue learning as this is so important. You are all fantastic learners and I am sorry we cannot continue our learning journey together at school just yet.

Please keep me updated with a comment at the bottom of the page or perhaps you could send pictures or videos to be uploaded to the Instagram page. If you are doing this, please make sure your parent/carer gives you permission to send any images. I love seeing what you are all up to and it is great to see so many of you keeping busy with various tasks and challenges.

Over the past week, while I've not been in school, I have been out for lots of lovely walks with my dog Brady. I am trying to keep myself busy and I am learning to cook new and tasty meals. 

I have attached a range of activities. Have a go at them as best you can. If you are unsure leave it and come back to it later.

I hope you all have a great week. Keep up the good work! I am very proud of you all!

Miss Trevis :)

Reading

Please try to read for 20 minutes per day to, or with, an adult. There is a selection of reading comprehensions you can have a go at; fiction, non-fiction and poetry. There is also guidance and the answers for adults. Try your best and remember to answer the questions as fully as possible.

Spellings

 

 

Please work through the PowerPoint for this week’s spelling rule. Have a go at completing the activities that go with this; handwriting, look, say, cover, write, check, spelling game and a word search.

Dictionary hunt – you could play this with a member of your family. Choose a letter of the alphabet and then a number. E.g. B and 5. You turn to B in a dictionary and go down to the fifth word. Is it a word you know? If not, what does it mean? Perhaps you could keep a record of the words and definitions.

Maths

Continue to practice your times tables regularly to support your learning. I have attached a times table challenge for you to have a go at. You might like to do it against the clock and repeat it to see if you can beat your previous time. 

This week I would like you to have a go at the adding and subtracting fractions worksheet. Choose one of the worksheets based on the level of challenge you feel comfortable with. Remember, when adding fractions with the same denominator, we only add the numerators. This is the same when subtracting fractions with the same denominator.

Don’t forget you can choose learning from your home learning workbooks too and you also have access to Mathletics and the PiXL times tables app. If anyone has forgotten or lost their login information, please let me know.

English

Write a set of instructions for how to make an Easter/Spring themed recipe. You could write about how to make Easter biscuits, hot cross buns, an Easter/Spring cake or cupcakes, the choice is yours. Use the instruction writing support sheet to guide you with how to set up your instructions. If you are able, have a go at following your instructions and actually make the recipe. Try to take photos along the way as these can be added to your instructions and I would love to see! Why not send them to the Instagram page?! The key with instructions is to imagine you are writing for aliens who do not know how we do things. They must be super clear and easy to follow. You could use this template if you like.

Topic

This week I would like you to complete some fun Easter/Spring activities. You can choose one or more from the following:

Colouring, Easter origami, Easter/Spring crafts, create an uplifting Spring song or dance. Whatever you choose to do, make it fun and enjoy yourselves.

Daffodil template
Science soap experiment instructions and record sheet

My Activity Booklet - there are some superb resources inside for you to have a go at.

January 2020

Skylarks have been learning about strong structures and focusing on bridges in DT. We have tested bridges and created different types of truss. We learnt about arches and suspension bridges. The children then designed a prototype of a bridge based on a success criteria and a brief. They all did a brilliant job and it seems we might have some engineers in the making!

Hello Oscar. So lovely to hear from you. I’m so glad you’re keeping busy and making the most of each learning opportunity. It sounds like you’re having great fun. I bet Ruby is loving her walks, I know my dog Brady is! That’s so lovely that you were able to rescue a bee - very apt name too. Making cupcakes for your elderly neighbours is such a kind, selfless thing to do. Well done you!

Hello Thomas. It is lovely to hear from you. I am missing you all too and I hope we will all be back together very soon. I am keeping well, thank you for asking, and I hope you and the rest of your family are too. Take care.

Hello again Faith, it's great to hear from you. How wonderful to hear that you are enjoying Mathletics and you have created a schedule. This will help to keep you and your mind busy which is great. It is easy to get distracted and lack motivation at times like these so a schedule and routine will be really useful. Well done you!
