I hope your first home schooling week is going well. I have added a new tab to the learning from home section with useful websites, I will update this as I hear of more websites that will be useful on your journey.
Jo Wicks- Daily PE lessons, I'm sure you all know that Jo Wicks is doing a daily PE lesson from his YouTube channel at 9am. If you haven't tried it already give it a go. We did it yesterday with the key worker children, even Mr Tindall joined in. I'm going to give it a go today whilst I am working from home. Hopefully Aoife will join in too!
Mathematics - The children can complete an arithmetic sheet. Again make sure they are reading the questions properly, do they know what the symbols mean?
English- Finish writing up the alternative ending of the Twits, if you finished it yesterday, edit it with a different colour pen, then write it up in neat. Concentrating on handwriting and presentation.
Topic work- Today our topic work is about Roald Dahl, can you find out about his life, you can use the sheets in the pack that was brought home. I'll add the sheets below so you know what they look like.
If you were already self isolating last week, you can make a timeline of the books Roald Dahl has written. Place the books in order from first book published to last. Don't try and do them all, maybe pick 5 or more if you're up for a challenge. Make sure you label the date at the bottom of your timeline.
Both of the above activities will develop the children's history skills by finding out about a significant person. If you are doing the second activity; using a timeline using chronological order.
You can use the Roald Dahl Website for both activities:
Roald Dahl's life:
Mrs Ferryman will be uploading her Friday work for the children tomorrow,
I hope you have had a productive first week juggling working from home and homeschooling. One week to go until the Easter Holiday's :)
Thank you to everyone who sent me the rainbow pictures, I have uploaded them under 'Learning from Home' > 'Our Home Learning Photos'.
It has been so lovely seeing their beautiful creations. We made one today too with the key worker children, I'll upload that one as well.
