School Closure Learning
Week 2 - Home Learning
Good morning Class 4, I hope you're all staying safe and looking after each other at home. It is becoming more important to stay home and stay safe.
Please send pictures any work that you're proud of to the year 6 e-mail address at the bottom of the page. Keep up the good work.
Each day we are going to start with an online PE lesson. During this period of isolation, it is vitally important to stay fit and healthy, both in our minds and body. We will start each day with a PE lesson run by Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) live on Youtube. Please follow the link and give it your all.
Missed the live broadcast at 9am? Don't worry you can find the full PE lesson on the link and do it at any time of the day. Try to get your family involved too.
You all now have a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Each week we will by reading the next chapter (Week 2 - Chapter 2). Our English work will be linked to each chapter, you will read a chapter each week and do the work from this (in the English section). Pay close attention to each chapter, this will allow you to be more creative in your English work.
Please do continue your love for reading by setting aside at least 20min a day to read a book of your choice. Make sure you save the Harry Potter book from school for the English lessons.
Throughout the home learning time, we will be focusing on Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. At the bottom of this page is a Power Point, this has a lesson for each day (Tuesday-Friday, Monday lesson is to read the next chapter and to make notes) linked to the weeks chapter. Please follow the instructions on the Power Point and complete the activities. There are a range of tasks to allow the opportunity to develop your skills across a wide range of writing tasks. Make sure you read the chapter carefully before you do the work.

Throughout the home learning time, we will continue to work on our Maths booster booklets as well as the Maths No Problem Books. Although SATs are not going ahead as planned, it is important that we continue to work on a variety of topics in preparation for the start of high-school.
This week we are working in our CGP Booster books.

With more time on your hands at home, it would be a great time to create an adventurous and well designed game. Give it a go on Purple Mash. From the home page click 'computing' then you want to look for 2DIY3D. Most of you will have tried this in class, if you haven't then watch the instructional video.
Please keep an eye on this page for next weeks work.
Please do not feel like you need to 'home school' your child. The work that has been set is work that they are capable of doing independently. If they are finding any area too difficult, they are encouraged to research the solution using websites like BBC bitesize, if they are not able to find a solution don't worry they can leave that section of work. Our main aim is to make sure everyone is safe and happy during this difficult time. Thank you for your continued support.
At the bottom of the page I have attached a PDF file with a few fun activities for the whole family.
If you have any problems with any part of the work please e-mail and I will get back to you as soon as possible with the help that you need.
The following link has some great prayers for you to do with your family or on your own, during this time of isolation.
