2. Reading - parents can access resources on this page to help them to support their children's reading at home.

Did you know that audible are now allowing free access to their children's book collection? Our reading for pleasure challenge is attached here. Short bursts of reading, or listening to others readers reading quality books is a really important way of maintaining children's literacy skills. We hope that you can read for 15 minutes daily.

3. Remember to complete your two lessons of Bedrock every week. Staff are looking at who gets the green smiley face for doing just that!

4. Practising your timestables on TTRockstars is a must! Everyone needs to be speedy times tables experts as this helps you when you get to Y6 and Y7 to be fluent mathematicians. Don't forget to log on, and watch out for the next battle coming soon!

5. You have been given access to the Spelling Beats website. Please check your dojo messages for information. Practise your spellings three times this week using this website.

6. SPaG

Complete the following lessons on BBC Bitesize: 

Semi colons- https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/zshfdxs

Relative clauses- https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/zsrt4qt

7. PSHE and English - this week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is kindness. 

Quite often, we only want to help people if there is something in it for us normally a reward or money. The video below is an example of what a random act of kindness can do for someone in need but also an example of how this makes the person being kind feel. Watch the video and answer the questions below referring back to the video as much as possible. You may want to spend a little time looking what the Royal British Legion is or ask a family member.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYw_7HZeWK4

How Phil feeling at the start of the video ? How do you know? Try to think not only about what he says, but also the actions he described.

Why do you think Stephen decided to help ?

How has Phil’s life changed over the last year? Try to think about his day to day life but also his mental health.

Why do you think that both Stephen and Phil got upset when they met again?

 

At this time, it is even more important to be kind to people. Think about three people close to you and plan an act of kindness that you will do ( it doesn’t matter if it has to wait until the lockdown is over). Add to it why you are doing it and how you hope the person receiving it will feel.

My plan is to invite my Gran round for tea. I normally go to see her every week but obviously, at the moment, I can’t do this. I hope that this will make her realise how much I’ve missed seeing her and gives her chance to spend some time with us at a different house to the one that she has been stuck in.

 

English

In the video Stephen speaks to the Royal British Legion to get a room for Phil. Your English task is to write a formal persuasive letter to a large company encouraging them to give random acts of kindness. An example could be McDonalds giving free hot drinks to homeless people or a free meal to NHS staff once they re-open.  We may send some of the best ideas off to the companies or you could even do this yourself.

Your letter should include:

Formal letter layout.

Why you are writing.

What they should do.

Why they should do it.

End with re-emphasising your point.

8. Further learning:

If you want to extend your learning the Oak National Academy (a government backed project) are delivering lessons online. You can access them through the link below. This is in addition to what we have set as a school and we are signposting to them if you would like to use them. There is English, Maths and Foundation Subjects on there and the Oak Academy are adding more lessons each week.

Oak National Academy

We hope you enjoy your learning and would love to see what you get up to on dojo.

Please note that the White Rose, Oak Academy and BBC Bitesize websites are always much busier on a Monday morning and between 9-11am on other mornings. They become easier to access after this time, or later in the week. Please be patient and if you can, complete your learning, or download resources at a different time. There are literally millions of people accessing the websites. We have set you additional tasks not on these websites to help you should you have problems with these ones.

Thanks for your understanding.
