Learning from Home
If your child has Covid but is feeling well, here are some activities they can choose from until they are back in school:
Reading: Children can spend time reading a book each day and record this in their Reading Journals. When they get back to school, this will count towards their Reading Champion stamps and certificates.
Click here for some reading texts and comprehension questions about the Mayan Creation Story. There are three difficulty levels to choose from and the answers are included as well.
IXL Maths: Sign in to IXL and have a go at some of the sections and activities that have not yet been tried. Or have another go at some activities where they think they can improve their achievements.
IXL English: Sign in to IXL and look at the Grammar and Punctuation activities for their year group. Choose some of these to try.
Spelling Shed: Sign into Spelling Shed and play some games to practise their assigned spellings as well as any previous spellings which may appear.
Times Tables Rockstars: Knowing all the times tables up to 12 x 12 greatly helps in other areas of maths. Sign into Times Tables Rockstars and see if they can improve the speed at which they can recall any of the times tables.
Sparrow Class have made a great start to the term, thinking about what they already know about the Mayan Civilisation and what they would like to find out throughout the topic.
They came up with some great questions such as:
When were they around? Are they still around?
Where did they live?
What did they eat?
As well as some more practical questions about what they used for a toilet and where their babies were born.
We look forward to working together to discover more about this ancient civilisation.
The children were greeted with a message from a famous film star: Yoda!
He left them with the message; 'The future, how much we can predict?'
They started to think about things they can predict in life and things they cannot.
Although they decided that they could predict that they would eat cake on their birthdays, they reflected that no-one would be able to predict breaking a leg!
