Week 7-Week beginning 8th June
8th June, 2020
Thank you for continuing to embrace the regular routine of structured English and Maths work each day, and we continue to focus on ways in which to engage and stimulate your child’s learning. While it is important to focus on the core subjects, please remind them to take advantage of and complete the tasks on foundation subjects too to ensure they maintain a good balance of academic as well as creative thinking skills.
Home/School Contact: Please do not hesitate to speak with us if you have any queries or would like advice/support with any aspect of the guided home learning programme. We are here to work with and support you as well as your child. We would be delighted if they can complete the daily tasks, but if they cannot, we completely understand.
Maths: This week onwards the children will be revisiting and revising the learning some of the maths topic to enable them to deepen their understanding. We have created a PowerPoint with the maths work. For convenience, the slides for the questions are coloured green. The answer keys are also provided, they are either on the next slide or on the notes in the PPT. Mymaths tasks are also uploaded weekly.
English: This week we are working on a poem-‘What is Pink?’The daily tasks designed are to ease the transition into home learning and enable the children to write and complete their work independently. The flow of lessons is on the timetable. Grammar tasks are also uploaded weekly on Spag.com.
RE- This week we begin a new topic ‘Choices’ and the children will learn what makes a choice a ‘good one’. They will also identify the potential impacts of some of their daily choice.
Science: This week children will complete two lessons on Light. The first lesson is a Quiz on Facts of light. The second lesson is to predict and then investigate which colours show up best and least in the dark. They will also investigate the effect of shining torch on various objects including reflective material.
Art and D&T: To paint and decorate shadow puppet theatre and make it attractive and exciting! Step by step instructions are provided on the PowerPoint.
PSHE- Children have been given three tasks to help them think deeper and identify the special people who care for them and give them happiness.
We want your support in encouraging independent reading and in engaging in your child’s reading. Kindly try to build this into your daily routine and have a quiet, comfortable space your child (and you) can read in.
