Hope you are all well.  With all the big changes happening around us, I was wondering what little changes you are all experiencing. You will all be glad to know that a delivery of coffee arrived for me yesterday! Stocks were getting low and I was beginning to wonder what life would be like without it! I have been having virtual coffee mornings with my family on facetime rather than meeting up. It's quite a good substitute although we are not very good at not talkling over each other yet!!! Must do better! 

Enjoy some creative tasks today if you want to. Your origami skills are going to be useful.

Wednesday 1st April

Well, it might feel like an April Fool, however, social distancing is very much a reality!! Happy April Fool's day everyone! Let's be kind if we play any tricks today - I'd believe anything at the moment! My April fool is a little bit of grammar for you all! (I can almost hear the groan from some of you!!) It was lovely to talk to lots of you/your parents yesterday. If I didn't get to speak with you and left a message, I will call you next week!

Hope you get on ok with today's tasks!

Good Morning Kestrels,

Hope you took the opportunity to learn something about dinosaurs yesterday. I found out that one of the most intelligent dinosaurs was called the Troodon. Mind you, I hope my sources were correct. I have to be very careful at the moment to check that everything I'm reading on line is accurate! Enjoy your activities today.

Monday 23rd March

Good Morning Kestrels,

 I hope you are all keeping well and have managed to have a good weekend. Well what a different week we are all going to have. I am sure you are all starting to work out what your daily timetable will be. Are any of you going to join Joe Wicks at 9am for his online P.E. lessons? Those of us at school will try and do this at some point each day and there are lots of other suggestions that we will let you know about as the days unfold. Anyway, as promised, here are today's learning tasks for you to complete. 

You do not need to print these out, as you can record your learning straight into your text book. However, if you want to print activities out and stick them into your book that is fine too! All the documents you need are at the bottom of this page. Today, or at some point during the week, you might want to decorate your text book - Use drawings, stickers etc to make your book look fab!  

 

Literacy

We are going to take a trip to a paradise island today and describe all that we see there! - See Setting Description doc

In your setting description think carefully about your descriptive writing techniques:

Powerful adjectives / expanded noun phrases

Figurative language - Similes/metaphors/personification

Prepositional phrases - Beyond the..., beneath the..., above the...

Don't forget to think about what you can hear, feel, smell,  taste  as well as what you can see. 

You might want to spend a few minutes planning your description before you start. Kestrels and Kingfishers are doing the same literacy today, so that if any of you have siblings in these classes you can share ideas and work together. 

 

 

Maths

Today we are going to investigate consecutive numbers. From 9am there will be a video for you to watch by Gareth Metcalf  - see link below. This is the man who designs a lot of the tricky reasoning challenges that we complete in school. This video will also provide you with an activity to complete.

http://www.iseemaths.com/home-lessons/

 In addition, I have attached an investigation about consecutive numbers for you to complete, if you cannot access the video or just as an extra activity for fun. - See Consecutive numbers activity doc. I will post the answers to the investigation tomorrow!

 

Design Technology

We are going to be exploring different materials in our homes today and then using our graphing skills to present our findings. - See Design Technology_Materials doc.

You might want to produce your own chart in your books. You could consider different chart types. If you have a protractor, you could even draw a pie chart. Remember there are 360 degrees in a circle! You could think about converting your results into percentages to provide different labels for your chart. Don't forget about presentation, add colours, patterns or images to represent your findings - Be as creative as you can!

 

Enjoy your learning today!
