homework wb 30.3.20

Good morning and welcome to week 2. 
Newsflash: If you would like to use Twinkl to get some creative ideas, they have created a special parent page just for one month - copy this code into your browser so that your carer can create a login.
Also, I will be emailing your parents about a get-together on zoom next Tuesday at 10:30 if you would like to join us.
Check out the new 'Thrive' page for some Easter activities
Hopefully by now you will have established a bit of a routine and are getting used to working on your own. Well done to all of you who have sent me some photos - I hope you have enjoyed looking at them. Did anyone guess the mystery class member? It was Lloyd!
I have cleared the photos from last week, and look forward to some more this week. So...the week ahead:
  • Today should have been RE day, so have a look at some of the RE activities I've put on - we are preparaing for Easter and thinking about the resurrection.
  • Have a go at designing your own 'Happy' newspaper or 'How to be Happy' scrapbook - send me your favourite page and I'll create a new 'Happy' page. If you have any messages for your friends, I can also put them up here.
  • I have also attached some really cool science stuff for you  to have a look at, but please CHECK WITH YOUR PARENTS / CARER BEFORE YOU DO ANY SCIENCE WORK - you will need their help for safety!
  • I hope you got on well with homophones spelling last week. This week, we are looking at the ETYMOLOGY of prefixes. We have talked before about how different parts of teh English language originate from different countries. Your task this week, is to investigate some of them. Fill in the chart below, using membean (I have attached a link)- I have done the first one for you.

Harry Potter work:

If you haven’t seen / read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone, see if you can get hold of it (with your parents’ permission). Alternatively, you can read chapter 4 here:



Why not havae a go at making a character from your book out of papier mache:




These are your DAILY activities. It is important to keep up with the 'building blocks' of your Maths and English work.
Every day you need to:
  • Spend 30 minutes reading something - a book, a newspaper, a magazine etc. Make sure that you don't always read the same material though - try and mix it up;
  • Spend 15 minutes on Read Theory. Email me if you have forgotton your password;
  • Spend 15 minutes practising time tables. This can be on the computer, or you can find a creative way of practising them - write a song, make a poster then hide parts, match up questions with the answers, design a game etc.;
  • Spend 15 mins a day on spellings 
  • Spend 15 minutes on mathletics - go over the basics or skills that you know you need to practise. Again, let me know if you forget your password;
