Week 7 W/C Monday 18th May

School closure – Week Commencing Monday 18th May 2020: Trailblazers

 

Well done everyone so far – you’ve been sending in some great pieces of work! Keep it up.

 

This week, I have tried to use SeeSaw a little more so you can get used to it. When you need to add something, it is written in the activity.

 

This week’s tasks are:

  • English – a mixture of BBC and writing on SeeSaw.
  • Maths – a mixture of BBC and MyMaths tasks.
  • Times Tables Rock Stars – 5 sessions please.
  • Topic – complete the four tasks written below. Some are BBC Bitesize, some have bits to upload to SeeSaw and some have some practical activities!

 

English work:

This week I have used some of the BBC home learning tasks (I realise some of the PurpleMash tasks were quite challenging!) Please have a go and let me know which activities you prefer.

Task 1 (RE):

It has been the month of Ramadan. Please follow this link to find out more: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdgrcqt

Once you have done this, log onto SeeSaw, and add either a video or a piece of writing explaining what Ramadan is. You could use the sheet from the second activity on the BBC page to help you structure your ideas.

 

Task 2 (Science):

Earlier in the year, we explored properties of materials and how to mix and separate them. This week, go to the BBC Bitesize page and complete the review task: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zky3bdm

 

Task 3 (Geography):

We will continue to explore the USA and Mexico.This week we will compare the geographical features of North and South America. Use the PowerPoint to find out more, then complete the tasks in your red book – on the PowerPoint, it explains when to do each one.

 

Task 4 (PE):

The School Sports Partnership have been creating activities each week. I have attached the last two: golf, football and netball. Complete some of these activities – there’s a competition too if you want to get involved (except for Golf as this has now passed). There are prizes to be won if you submit your entries using the details on each lesson! Upload some pictures to SeeSaw of you and your family taking part of some of the physical activities too!
