Wednesday 17th June 2020

 

P.E.

You could start your day by joining Joe Wicks again for his daily live P.E. session which can be accessed here: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1 .

This is his last full week of live PE sessions.  From next week there will be a reduced timetable.

 

Are you looking for something different to do?  Why not take a look at the ‘Wacky Walks and Ways to Move’ sheets for some ideas to get you moving.

English

 

Over the next few weeks we are going to read this Twinkl original eBook which is set in the Stone Age.  This week’s reading and writing tasks focus on

Chapter 1.

 

Suggested timetable for this week’s tasks:

Monday – read and/or watch the video of Chapter 1 being read and answer the related comprehension questions.

Tuesday – complete ‘Unenjoyable Jobs Activity’ - Part A.

Wednesday – complete ‘Unenjoyable Jobs Activity’ - Part B.

Thursday – complete accompanying SPaG task.

 

The resources for the reading comprehension task are still available below, along with the ‘Unenjoyable Jobs Activity’ sheet.  If you completed Part A yesterday, then please look at Part B today.

How to Skin a Bear Chapter 1

Remember there are comprehension questions to answer during the video, as well as after the video.

Spelling

If you can, print and complete this week’s sheets from Spelling Shed.  If you are unable to print you can copy the lists and practise on paper.

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

Today’s task: Mr Kealoha’s Maths Challenges

History – Stone Circles

There are over 50 Stone Circles in Cumbria full of mysteries and secrets.  Have you ever visited any of them? What can you find out about one or more of them? The following websites are full of useful information for your research:

 

www.visitcumbria.com/stone-circle/   

www.stone-circles.org.uk/stone/ 

 

If you would like to, choose one of the stone circles and create a brief fact file that includes details about where the circle is located and perhaps a little of its history.  It might encourage people to visit this local site.  You could create your own template on Purple Mash to present your writing.  (A blank template has been set as a 2Do.)   

 

Hands On History:

If you haven’t already done so, you could also have a go at building a stone circle of your own using real stones, clay or junk modelling materials.  Or how about making a mini Stonehenge model using biscuits or crisps?  Have a look at the pictures and the 'Build a Stone Circle' booklet below for ideas.
