Yoga

How about trying some yoga to help you relax?

https://youtu.be/X655B4ISakgT

This video is structured more like a traditional yoga class, with breathing exercises, setting an intention, warming up, and cooling down.

If you don’t like the idea of yoga, perhaps try a ‘Just dance’ or ‘PE with Joe’ session or go for a walk in nature and try and notice everything around you such as the birds and flowers.

 

Mindful drawing- Zentangle Art

Colouring or drawing is often very relaxing and calming. Have a look at the tutorial below which introduces Zentangle art- doodle patterns. (It is approximately 10 minutes long).

Reading

Find a quiet, cosy spot in your house to read a good book. Perhaps make a hot chocolate (if you are allowed) and get fully engrossed in the story. There are lots of audio book if you prefer to listen to stories.

Time to Connect

It is good to take time to connect with your family and friends. Sometimes you may not be able to play out or interact with your friends as you would like, but you can still have contact with them. Can you think of ways that you can talk to your friends and family without actually meeting up with them? Try and list 3:

1)…………………………………………………………………………………… 2)…………………………………………………………………………………… 3)……………………………………………………………………………………

Organise to contact a friend or family member today to either talk to them or play a game online. (Check with your parents first) or perhaps play a game with your family at home or agree to watch a movie together later.

Make a Positivity Jar

See the instructions in the pdf below. There are a number of slips that have been made but you don’t have to use these, they can just be ideas.

You can also pop in good memories of places you have been or places you are looking forward to going with friends and family.

You could also make a jar for someone else. It could have all the positive qualities that you love about them.

Origami animals

Origami animals are a popular choice of origami. They're fun to fold and it's really cool to see them begin to take shape and look like their real life counterparts. There are instructions for various origami animals so just choose your favourite one and start folding.

Creative / Mindfulness task: Make a calming glitter Bottle

Preparation

  • Fill a bottle or jar with water, leaving 2-3 cm of space at the top.
  • Add a generous amount of glitter glue to the bottle (or a combination of PVC glue and regular glitter).
  • Seal the bottle well!

Directions

  • Shake the bottle well to mix the glitter, water and glue and repeat these words as you shake it… “Imagine that the glitter is like my thoughts when I’m stressed, mad or upset. See how they whirl around and make it really hard to see clearly? That’s why it’s so easy to make silly decisions when I’m upset because I’m not thinking clearly. Don’t worry this is normal and it happens in all of us.”
  • Now put the jar down and watch what happens when you’re still for a couple of moments. Keep watching. See how the glitter starts to settle and the water clears? Your mind works the same way. When you’re calm for a little while, your thoughts start to settle and you start to see things much clearer.”

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. πŸ£πŸŒˆπŸ’–

Please remember - every day you should be completing your expected times on TTRS, Bug Club, Nessy, Numbots and Hit the Button.  This will take you about an hour and a half each day but is so important if you are to keep up when schools re-open and be ready to move to High School.  Your teachers are now checking these every day to see who is working on these core skills.

Science:

So, yesterday we were looking at metals and what they are used for.  Today we are going to look more closely at the properties of plastics.

 

Task 1: See if you can find a wooden spoon, a plastic spoon and a metal spoon.  Ask an adult to help. you and put these spoons in some very hot water.  What do you think will happen to the spoons (which spoon handle will get hotter the quickest?).  Carefully. touch the handles and see if you were right.

 

Remember - a thermal insulator is something which prevents heat from moving from one place to another and a thermal conductor is something which allows heat to be conducted through it.

 

Questions:

  • When might it be better to use a wooden spoon rather than a metal spoon?
  • When might a plastic spoon be better than a wooden spoon?

 

Task 2: Using the table below (we've attached it to print out if you want) examine things that are plastic around the house.  You will need to carefully examine the labels on the plastic.  Can you sort the plastics into groups depending on what type of plastic they are?  Why have they used a certain plastic to make your objects . . . . what properties does it have that made it a good choice?

 

 

Reflect: Were any of the plastics recyclable? How did you know?

 

Creative / Mindfulness:

Outdoor task:

Create your own obstacle course!

Can you use any household/outdoor objects to create your very own obstacle course for yourself and your family members? How challenging can you make it? Remember to upload pictures and videos on Class Dojo portfolios.

We are now on Week 2.  Complete lesson 2 today - Ratio and Proportion problems (If you haven't completed yesterday's lesson yet then please do this first).  Here's the link if you need it

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning

 

Remember, if you don't have a printer at home then just use whatever paper you have to work out your answers and if you can post your work on your Class Dojo portfolio πŸ‘πŸ»

 

Science:

So, yesterday we were looking at liquids and which had the highest level of viscosity.  Today we are going to look more closely at the properties of metals and what they are used for.

 

Task 1: Have a look at these statements and decide for each one if you agree with it, disagree with it or aren't sure.

 

 

Check these with an adult and any you are unsure about see if you can find out on the internet.

 

Task 2: Using the table below (if you have a printer it is available just below today's instructions), Your challenge is to find examples around your house of a metal being used because it has a particular property on the list.

 

 

Key questions:

  • Which property was the easiest to find examples of?
  • Which metals are used and or what purposes?
  • Why do you think certain metals are especially suited to particular jobs (for example why is aluminium often used to make stepladders?)

 

Creative / Mindfulness:

Bubble blowing:  Go out in the garden and see how many bubbles you can make.  How big can you blow a bubble . . . . you might need a different container for your soap.

 

If you aren't sure about how to make your bubbles or your 'wand' just try this link:

Tuesday 31st March

Maths:

We are now on Week 2.  Complete lesson 1 today - Calculating Scale Factors (If you haven't completed any lessons from Week 1 yet then please do these first).  Here's the link if you need it

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning

 

Remember, if you don't have a printer at home then just use whatever paper you have to work out your answers and if you can post your work on your Class Dojo portfolio πŸ‘πŸ»

 

Science:

Hopefully you had fun investigating materials yesterday.  Today we are going to look at 'liquids'.

 

Task 1: Pour some water into a plastic cup.  What can water do that solid objects can't do? (experiment with the water).

 

Task 2: Is a liquid always runny? Are all liquids the same?

 

Find as many of these as you can around the house (ask an adult): honey, cooking oil, syrup, milk, washing up liquid, bubble bath, lemonade (or cola), yoghurt, ketchup

 

When we are talking about liquids we use the term 'viscous' to explain how thick something is.  Come up with a way to test these liquids to decide which is the thickest (maybe how long it takes to pour a tablespoon full or how long after pouring it takes a quantity of the liquid to fill a flat surface).

 

Remember to focus on making it a fair test.  Rank your liquids and share your results on Class Dojo.

 

Creative / Mindfulness:

Collect 15-20 items from around your house of the same colour (no repeats). Create a picture/collage with them or write a message. We would love to see your ideas so please post them on your class dojo portfolio. These are Mrs Wearing’s boys attempts…

 

   

 

 

Monday 30th March

Maths:

We are still on Week 1.  Complete lesson 5 today - Using Scale Factors (If you haven't completed lessons 1-4 yet then please do these first).  Here's the link if you need it

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning

 

Remember, if you don't have a printer at home then just use whatever paper you have to work out your answers and if you can post your work on your Class Dojo portfolio πŸ‘πŸ»

 

Science:

Our new topic is investigating materials, comparing and sorting them based on their properties and their uses.  Today's task is to find as many of these items as you can around the house:

 

Milk, jelly, soil, metal key, oil (cooking), flour, wooden ruler, steam (ask an adult), sponge, lemonade, aluminium foil, butter, cork.

 

Sort these materials into solids, liquids and gases.  Now answer these questions:

  • Are any of the materials in more than one section?
  • Are all the materials that you have classified as solids the same ?
  • What properties are different?
  • Are any of the materials transparent?
  • Would any of these materials conduct electricity?

 

Reflect:

  • Do all metal materials have the same properties (are they all hard ? are they all shiny?)

 

Creative / Mindfulness:

Make a paper aeroplane.  How far can you get it to fly?  Measure the distance and let us know so we can have a virtual competition.  It can be any design you want.

 

If you need any ideas of how to make a paper aeroplane why not check on YouTube or click here:

Today, we would like you to create a piece of music inspired by your chosen planet. You could either use a programme such as Garage Band on an I pad or computer, or you could use an instrument if you have one at home. If you don’t have an instrument or access to an app such as garage band, you can create music using items you can find at home such as pots and pan, spoons, plastic bowls etc. Be as creative as you can!

Listen to the following links for inspiration:

Reflect: Perform your piece of music to someone at home and think about the following questions:

Why did you select particular instruments or sounds for your composition?

How did you change the tempo or dynamics of your composition?

What would you do next time to improve your composition?

 

We would love to hear some of your compositions if you would like to post a video on your Dojo profile. You can post a picture of your reflection too.

                                                                                  

Creative/mindfulness Task:

You may have seen the news that lots of children are putting rainbows in their windows  for other children to look for as they go outside to exercise/have a walk in their street or near their home.

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 πŸ‘πŸ».

 

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