European country activity

Maths

This week for Maths the children are going to be looking at time.  However in year four the children are expected to be able to tell the time using Roman Numerals.  Again, the children have been exposed to this in school in the past but may need a quick recap.  I have uploaded a poster to help them complete their time activity.

Music

Quick story, During a conversation this week with my own parents my dad told me to kill a bit of time he resorted all of his old music collection into alphabetical order.  I thought what would be nice for the children to do this week is to ask mum and dad what their favourite song was when they were growing up.  The children can then listen and appraise the song by writing a little paragraph.  If you tell the children that they do this during our music lessons in school using 'Charranga' they should understand what you mean.  The children will need to listen to the song, try to work out how many voices are on, what instruments are being played, the time of the beat and if they like or dislike the song and why.

RE

This week for RE I have uploaded some questions the children can try and answer about Jesus.  I have made the questions quite big in size so they are easy to read so there are a couple of pages worth.  You don't need to print them all off the children can simply read them from the screen and answer as many as they can.

Questions about Jesus

Science

For science this week I though the children can do a nice activity which should keep them busy for a while. I have uploaded a word search all about electricity.  We were learning about electricity in the Spring term so the children were just beginning to become familiar with the vocabulary.  If the children get their word search finished they could always have a go at creating their own and asking a family member to complete theirs.

Spanish

With the summer months upon us we would now normally be doing our PE lessons outside. This week for Spanish I would like the children to be able to write which sports they love, like or don't like in Spanish.  We used the same sentence structure when we were learning about different food types so the children should recognise the language.  Again if you need any additional help please email me.

For science this week  as the weather is good at this time and lots of creatures are beginning to come out  to play for the children to have a look around for odd bits of wood, plant pots, sticks etc and build their own bug hotel.  They could then keep a record of the different types of creatures they see checking into their hotels.   I have uploaded a brief link to a website to give the children some ideas on how to build their own hotel.

Spanish

for Spanish this week sit down as a family and discuss your family tree.  How far back can you go.  You could even try and research your family name and see where it originally came from.  I would like the children to create their own family tree but use the Spanish words for mother, father, Grandad etc.  The children can also look up and translate the christian names of their family members.  I have uploaded an example of a template of how the children can set out their work but feel free to allow the children to set their work out differently if they wish.  Again use the website www.lightbulblanguages.com to help you with the Spanish part.

Other activities

Don't forget as well as the activities listed above you can also use the oxford owl website and use the log in details I gave you earlier to access lots of different books for the children to read.  The children can also access their times table rock stars and practice their times tables.  The children also have access to Purple mash where they can access lots of different computer based activities.  If anyone has forgotten or lost their username and passwords please email me and I will send you them again.

Week Beginning Monday 30th March

I hope everyone is staying safe and well at this difficult time.  I have had a few emails from parents this week saying they are finding it hard to get through the activities each week.  Please don't worry if you are not able to complete everything, the children's mental health is also very important and most of the children will be feeling unsettled and missing their friends.  Can I also reassure you that the children of key workers who are attending school are not having any formal lessons, so anyone who is staying at home is not missing out.

Please remember I am available via email any time during school hours if you have any questions or need any further advice etc.

Stay safe, Stay home.

The children began to learn about Andy Goldsworthy just before they finished, for their art project this week I would like them to spend some time researching as much information as they can about Andy and create their own little fact file.  I would also like them to get out into the garden (if possible) and collect natural materials to create their very own Andy Goldsworthy inspired artwork.  Please feel free to email me pictures of any of the art work the children do.
