(Please note: some children may be distressed by scenes of the toy breaking at around 2m30s. The toy is later fixed but please consider the age and needs of your group, and perhaps listen to the audio instead if more appropriate).

Research shows that people feel more positive after singing to music, than they do just listening to music. If safe to do so, try this activity: choose a song from the list below (or one of your own) learn the words and sing it together (some children might prefer to join in by clapping, clicking their fingers, using percussion instruments, miming or dancing)

Have a go using these songs:

‘If you want to sing out, sing out’ by Cat Stevens https://bit.ly/3iesKBg  ‘Express yourself’ by Labrinth https://bit.ly/3kSm8tS

English:

Today the children will think about food in the stone age and compare it food today. Remember that if we are talking about the Stone Age we should use past tense and if we are talking about Modern day use present tense.

Theme:

History

LI: Describe how past civilisations or lives of people in Britain developed during the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age

Begin by watching this video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/story-of-britain-bronze-age-britain/znrygwx  This will help introduce the children to the Bronze Age.

Think about these questions:

  • What happens at the beginning of the Bronze Age?
  • How is their life different to how it was in the Stone Age?

Look at the Bronze Age PowerPoint presentation and the images of objects to sort.

Looking at the pictures and the information can the children discuss the difference between the Bronze Age and the Stone Age, thinking about their clothes, the tools they made, where they lived, how they found food, etc.

If the children are struggling remembering about the Stone Age facts, watch this recap video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSOEQD686XQ  

The children’s task is complete a Venn diagram to compare the Stone Age and Bronze Age. The children can include drawings, key words and the pictures to sort link below to say what was different or similar in each period. Remember one side of the Venn should be labelled Stone Age and the other Bronze Age anything that is the same goes in the middle. Remember to think about the way they lived, clothing, hunting etc...  

Challenge: To write a short paragraph explaining the difference between the Bronze Age and the Stone Age.

Maths

Review of Money topic. I have decided to use a range of word problems today to support the children’s learning from our Money topic. Remember to use methods such as bar models and number lines to support the children. From looking at work completed in school and at home I feel the children aren’t secure with some of the key points from the unit and therefore feel tackling these word problems could support the children in deepening their understanding particularly when adding and subtracting money. The children DO NOT need to complete all of the questions on the PowerPoint so it might help to have a quick look and perhaps select five questions in the areas your child needs further practise.

English:

Today the children will explore a number of prefixes. After listening to more of the story they will then create a glossary of any unfamiliar language in the story so far.

The following link may support them with prefixes in the PowerPoint.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zjjxjsg

Theme:

History

LI: Make deductions and draw conclusions about the reliability of a historical source or artefact.

Read through the presentation below called Cheddar Man. In this PowerPoint there are two video links, the first is to see what the Cheddar Gorge looks like and the second is about the Cheddar Man himself.

Once you have watched the videos and read the information about the Cheddar Man, can you create a poster telling us different facts about him. If you like, you could look for some more interesting facts about him online and add it to your poster.

Well - Being Monday 25th January

 

Today’s activities are all about looking after our well-being. You can choose all or some of the activities to complete, just remember to send photos on Dojo so I can see you all having fun.

What is Well-Being?

Yoga

Let’s start the day with some yoga activities. We have used Cosmic Yoga for a while now so I think it’s time we have a look at a more traditional session.

https://youtu.be/4ZpkRAcgws4 

Alo Yoga usually makes yoga and meditation content for adults, but they brought in instructor Alissa Kepas to make this special yoga video just for kids. Alissa tailors her routine for kids, making each pose engaging with interactive elements like making animal noises while still teaching the children the proper names and body positions for each pose. She’s full of positivity that brings a lot of fun and energy. This routine is great for older kids who want to get more serious about yoga.

Recommended Age Range: Up to 8 years old

Class Length: 15 minutes.

 

Well Being Activities:

The following attachments focus on some different emotions the children may be feeling during lockdown number two. Please take a look at the activities and perhaps choose one your child feels would be most helpful for them to complete.

 

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

Above is a link to the story A Huge Bag of Worries. If might be useful to watch this before completing the Worry Moles activity.

Mindfulness Colouring:

Arts and Crafts:

Art is a great way to relax and express ourselves. I thought it would be a nice idea to link our art and craft activities to our Stone Age theme. So today we are creating Stone Age cave paintings. There are lots of different ideas below on how to create your Stone Age cave painting, my particular favourite is the finger painting as I think it sounds very fun and relaxing.

 

 

Some examples:

 

 

Instructions:

 

 

You could follow the instructions above or use tea stained or crinkled paper for your cave art or even paint a rock from the garden (with permission.)

 

Building Family Time Challenge:

As a family can you recreate a miniature Stonehenge?

Meditation:

Let’s end the day with some meditation. There are two options below:

https://youtu.be/drfayLWgoZ4 - Force field protection meditation (12mins)

This meditation is for the Force field of Protection, which is great for nervous or anxious children. In visualizing a protective force field of light, it helps give kids confidence to deal with tricky situations that make them nervous.

https://youtu.be/CvF9AEe-ozc - Breathing (5mins)

This meditation focuses on the breath, teaching your child to turn their attention inward and creating good habits for future meditation.

PSHE:

It is thought that thousands of pets were 'panic bought' at the start of the first lockdown. The Battersea Dogs and Cats Home charity have warned that the number of dogs abandoned over the next five years could increase by 27%. The charity, which rehomes animals in London and the surrounding area, surveyed 2,000 dog and cat owners who acquired a new pet during the national lockdown. It found 31% had done so despite not having considered getting a dog or cat before.

 

Things to talk about at home…

Do you have any pets? If you do, do you enjoy being a pet owner? How do you take care of your pet? Is it a lot of work? If not, would you like to own a pet?

Why do you think lots of people may have bought pets at the start of the lockdown period?

Do you think that there should be age restrictions or other rules on who can buy pets?

Can you design a poster explaining how to take care of a pet so that people understand how much work it is before buy one?

Keeping Skills: Multiply by 10

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Y0zSnhiShc Watch the video up to 1min 54secs.

Remember when we multiply by ten the number becomes ten times greater, so each digit in the number moves one place value column to the left. We use 0 to hold the ones column.

Can you roll two dice, or make some number cards 0-9 to make two digit numbers to multiply by 10. Please complete 5 questions.

Challenge: Can you multiply three digit numbers by 10?

Further challenge: What would happen if we multiplied by 100 – continue to watch to the end of the video and find out. Can you complete 5 x100 questions?

Please click the link below which will take you to three differentiated comprehensions. One star being the easier of the three up to three stars being more challenging. Answers are included.

Theme: Today we will be starting our new topic – Through the Ages.

History: L.I. I can use historical terms to describe different periods of time.

For our new history topic, we are going to be studying Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.

Look through the presentation called Definitions of Time below.

On the last slide, look closely at the definitions of prehistory, prehistoric, Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age.

Using the timeline worksheet (link below) cut out the timeline cards and stick them together in chronological order. Then, cut out the duration cards and stick them onto the correct place in the timeline to show how long each period lasted.

For example, in the Bronze Age, the duration of the period was c2500-c800 BC. Count up from 800 until you get 2500 and that will tell you the duration of the period.

Challenge:

Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KV6lpX79G2g

Can you write a short paragraph explaining how life changed from the Palaeolithic period to the Neolithic period?

When writing your paragraph, think about how the tools they used and made changed, where they live and the food that they ate.

  • Try adding some short, snappy sentences to add excitement. E.g. He froze.
  • Tell the reader when something happened. E.g. Moments later, an enormous shadow passed overhead forcing us to run for cover
  • Use adjectives (describing words) to add interest. E.g. The starving, calculated vulture landed upon the bare branch, eyeing up the sweet, ripe fruit as it dangled tantalisingly.
  • Use a simile to compare something in the story to something else. E.g. Like a well-trained rugby team we rallied into formation.

English

Watch this short clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c88QE6yGhfM

 

Pause the film after 44 seconds as the animals emerge from their burrow. Where are the animals sleeping? What is the name for the long, seasonal sleep that some mammals partake in during winter? Describe the landscape around them- what is their natural habitat?

 

Pause the film at 1:27 when the vulture lands in the tree. What are the meerkats thinking as they climb the tree and find the fruit? How can you tell that the meerkats are happy to see the fruit? What gesture do they make? Why do they sway when they look at it? Describe their movements as the vulture lands. Do you think the vulture is going to be a hero or a villain in the story? Explain your answer.

 

Pause the film at 3:24 as the fruit is dropped and none of the animals have it. Why do you think all of the animals are so desperate to catch it? What sports does the meerkat formation remind you of? Explain how the meerkats work as a team. Think of three sentences to describe the way in which the vulture moves against the meerkats.

 

At the end of the film ask: What word would you use to describe the fruit at the end of the clip? Who do you think won in the end? Do you think there is a moral to this story? What is it?

Talk to someone at home about how this story opening makes you feel and what you like or dislike about it.  Does it remind you of anything you know in stories or real life? How?

 

Task 2 – Illustrate it! After you have read it a few times, take a pen or pencil and some paper. Draw what you see in your imagination. It can be shapes or shading - anything that captures the place and the mood of this story opening. Maybe other people in your family want to draw what they imagine as well. Remember, everyone has their own ideas and imagines things their own way. This is a good thing! To get started, ask yourself:

Where does our story begin?

What happens?

How do you know?

How does it make me feel? Does this change?

How can I show this in a drawing?

Spring Break

Now we have reached the Spring Break, we think everyone needs a well deserved rest (teachers, pupils and parents !!), therefore we will not be setting daily tasks on the website. However, we will set a project to complete over the two week holiday as we normally do. As with any holiday period we still expect children to access online learning at home (for help with logins etc check the info page by clicking here). Teachers will not be checking who is going on this daily but will check at the end of the two week holiday.


Please feel free to still add photographs and videos to Tapestry/Dojos as the staff would love to see what the children are getting up to and we know the home school link is now more important than ever. Staff won't be responding to these but will add them to the children's online portfolio.


Daily tasks will resume on the website on 20th April.


Mrs O'Neil Edwards will also be adding a headteacher's challenge to the website for children to work on over the two week holiday.


Have a wonderful Easter, be kind and stay safe. 🐣🌈💖

White Rose Hub are a team of teachers and mathematicians who have for a number of years been supporting schools with planning, lesson ideas and resources of a very high standard.

 

They have just released a website to support all those children who are affected by the school closures with a daily lesson which includes:

  • A short 'teaching' video to watch first which explains the daily topic.
  • A number of activities to practice this skill and a few to challenge you further.
  • The answers for these activities which also shows how they worked out these answers.

These lessons are released every Monday and are organised by Year group (from Foundation Stage through to Year 6)

 

If you don't have printer at home, just use whatever paper you have and write the question out yourself.  Remember, it's all about having a go and doing your best, don't worry if you get stuck and don't give up because as each day goes by they will be going over the same topic / skill and you will get there 👍🏻.

 

You do not need a login or password, just click here or visit (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/)
