National School Sport Week at Home 2020

 

This year, the Youth Sport Trust has partnered with Sky Sports to run a national campaign which aims to unite the country – families, schools, sport and businesses – in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together, even during isolation. 

 

It is taking place this week (Saturday 20th – Friday 26th June).

 

I uploaded the activity ideas pack, which includes web links to videos or websites for each event, on Monday.  Can you challenge yourself to complete at least one activity a day during the week, or as many activities as you can in one day?

 

Each day this week I will pick one activity to showcase.  Today I have chosen ‘Frisbee Golf’ from the ‘Aiming Sports’ section.  Develop the appropriate throwing action and be creative by making your own course.

Enjoy yourself, get involved and have fun! laugh

English

 

We will continue to read this Twinkl original eBook which is set in the Stone Age.  This week’s reading and writing tasks focus on Chapter 2.

Suggested timetable for this week’s tasks:

Monday – read and/or watch the video of Chapter 2 being read. Follow the instructions on the sheet provided to summarise key parts and then answer related comprehension questions.

Tuesday – complete ‘Conjunctions to Express Time, Place or Cause’ – Part A.

Wednesday – complete ‘Conjunctions to Express Time, Place or Cause’ – Part B.

Thursday – complete accompanying spelling task.

 

The resources for yesterday’s reading comprehension task are still available below, along with the ‘Conjunctions to Express Time, Place or Cause’ sheet.  There are two parts, but I suggest you only complete Part A today and then look at Part B tomorrow.

Spelling

Please log on to Spelling Shed  and complete the online activity set for you this week.

 

If you have a Lexia or Nessy login, don't forget to keep up with your usage. Try to spread it out throughout the week in short blocks (i.e. no more than 20 mins at a time).

 

Quick Maths

Yesterday, I set three assignments on the ‘Busy Things’ website which involve interpreting data in pictograms, bar charts, tables and graphs.  If you haven’t already done so, please try to complete at least one of the quizzes.

If you have already completed your Busy Things task or you’re looking for something else to do, you could have a go at completing the ‘Multiplication Wheels’ sheet below.  How quickly can you answer all of the calculations?

History – Skara Brae

 

Skara Brae is an archaeological site that has remains from a village in the Neolithic period.  It is important because it dates back to a time of major change during this period, when people were beginning to settle on farms instead of roaming around as hunter-gatherers.

 

Yesterday I asked you to find out some information about Skara Brae and then present it to someone at home. The following questions were given to guide your research:

  • Where is Skara Brae?
  • What are the houses like?
  • What do we know about the people who lived there?
  • What happened to Skara Brae?

 

Today I would like you to choose one of the following tasks:

 

  1. Pretend you have visited Skara Brae and write a postcard about your experience.
  2. Write an informative text about Skara Brae.

 

Both of these tasks have been set as 2Dos on Purple Mash with templates and prompts to help you write.  Remember, you only need to complete one task!

 

The following web link and PowerPoint contain information about Skara Brae.
