Help Learn at Home **NEW**

                                             Help Learn at Home 

 

In this folder you will find a daily timetable and suggested resources/activities that your child could complete during each day of school closures. For each of the subjects, resources will be uploaded to this page for your child to complete or alternatively challenges will be uploaded to the class SeeSaw page, so make sure to view each of them daily.

 

ALL children have a Spelling Homework book (pink) and a Learning Journey Homework book (red). Challenges can be completed from the set of 16 challenges for Terms 3 & 4 if they haven't already.

 

In the Home Learning packs that were sent home, there are two Seesaw login QR codes. One of the codes is for parents to use to sign in to see what their child has uploaded onto their account and the other code is the student code. The student code allows the children to sign in to their own account and upload any work they have done at home and would like to share with Mr Walker.

 

We have already had a lot of engagement with Seesaw and it is great seeing what you are all up to. If you need any support with this, use the parent login to access your account and there you will find a message option to ask any questions.

Arithmetic Papers

The Arithmetic papers are a great way to work on those quick fire arithmetic skills that we use every day in our maths lessons. These questions are the types of questions we usually answer in our 5-a-day morning maths. The children use the different strategies they have learnt to work out the answers and we find as many different ways as we can to find the answer. 

 

 

For any questions involving fractions, I have attached a pdf explaining how we use the Bar Model to work out an answer. The children should be able to explain to you why we use it and how it works too!

In Topic, we have been looking at Fairtrade and what it means for countries that produce chocolate. You may also want to look at Fairtrade bananas too. There are some great videos and links on Discovery Espresso that you may find useful.

 

Why not make your own information booklet on Fairtrade or create your own Fairtrade Factfile?

 

Another great activity is to research the different countries that produce cocoa and draw a map of the word. Could you draw the Fairtrade logo in each of the countries that produce Fairtrade cocoa or bananas?

 

If you really want to, you could even upload your own News Report to Seesaw with some interesting facts about Faritrade!
