I hope you are well. It’s really heart warming to see how hard the children are working and how hard you are trying. I just wanted to say I recognise how difficult this might be in and I am in awe at how you are juggling home teaching with your everyday lives. Just to echo what Mr Kendal has said, if you need help, please email and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. I maybe away from the class but not your child’s learning.
The school would like to get a clearer understanding of how your children can access technology at home. If you follow this link , you can tell us about what access you have at home and also how we can help you.
Here is today’s learning.
Today the children will be generating reasons for and against different debate topics. They will also be considering the validity of their argument; whether their point is reasonable or simply their opinion. The Sway for this lesson can be found here.
In Maths today, the children will be finding unit and non-unit fractions of an amount. They will need to use their times table skills to help them, and will find it useful to find the unit fraction of an amount first. The Sway for this lesson can be found here.
In RE, we are starting our new topic called ‘Community’. The children will be thinking about what s meant by the word ‘community’ and the role they play within their various communities. There is a story for the children to consider, and they will be exploring different jobs in our communities. The Sway for this lesson can be found here.
For today’s activity, the children will finish reading Chapter 1 and will be developing their inference skills by completing an activity on BBC Bitesize. They will then be applying these skills to answer some of the questions about the story so far. The Sway for this lesson can be found here.
