Mr Arnott Class

Working from Home

Monday 6th April - Friday 17th April

 

Phonics and English – Continue with reading at home with or without parents; reading a variety of different media – newspapers, leaflets etc. Use Reading Eggs to complete the allocated activities; I have created some assignments for you all to complete. 

When you have completed the assignments, use the Reading Eggs library to read books and answer the quizzes and find books to read.

PSHE and RE – Easter stories; watch the story of The Tale of the Three Trees https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_89k1aXvbhw

What do you think this story is about?  We could relate to this story to thinking about what we would like to be or do in the future?  In our career sessions we have been thinking about our possible pathways.  At this time of year, NEW life, NEW beginnings, I think it would be beneficial to plan possible pathways – think about what you are interested in, think about college courses, think about an alternative, like an apprenticeship or traineeship.  The links to apprenticeships and traineeships are on the school website under Careers   https://www.hollywaterschool.co.uk/careers/

Go on to the college websites and have a look at the foundation learning packages and the Level 1 courses.

Our pathways need to flexible, like in the story of the three trees, we may have wishes but life can change and this is OK.

Duke of Edinburgh – Continue with your Physical section; hopefully you have all viewed my video examples of keeping fit/active sent through the Evidence for Learning Parent Web Portal.  If not, do ask your Parents to log on….it will cheer you up I promise!

I am sending a new challenge…look out for this!

PE – If you have managed to set up a circuit at home, please continue to write your results.  The link to the record sheet is at the bottom of the page.  If you find it too easy – do each exercise for longer e.g. 45 seconds, or if you are finding it too hard do for a shorter amount e.g. 20 seconds.  Or if space is limited or you are finding it hard to remember some of the exercises, go on to YouTube and complete the Joe Wicks workouts.  He does them every day at 9am live, Monday to Friday.  But don’t worry if you miss them they stay on YouTube for you to access at any time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sX05HHni9Wk

Sciencehttps://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/zh2xsbk Continue with Physics; Energy.  Read through and look at the Class Clips – complete the quizzes to test yourselves!

Maths – Use Sumdog, log on and complete the challenges.  Miss D has been looking at your results and is very impressed by some.  Try to do at least 30 minutes a day to keep your brain active….try doing countdown http://happysoft.org.uk/countdown/numgame.php

New topic: Measures

This topic is all about lengths, heights, weights and capacities.

Can you name the units for each of the measures?  E.g. length – mm, cm etc.

Can you order them in terms of the smallest unit to the largest?  Can your parents?

Find objects around the house, that you can measure with?  What objects would you measure with them?

Can you play a game of guess the possible length, capacity or weight for an item?  Can your parents?

This topic is great as you can help around the house as you learn:

  • Do some baking or cooking with your family; measuring ingredients using scales or jugs or measuring spoons
  • Help potting up plants in the garden

Maths - GCSE pupils

REMEMBER I CAN ACCESS YOUR ACCOUNTS – there has been very little done so far

Log on to MyMaths and complete the set activities.  You need to complete the lesson before doing the online homework.  DO NOT be concerned about the due date of these tasks they will be extended if required.  If you get stuck, you could go back to the lesson, use your green revision booklets or go on this link to find a solution,

IT – Using Microsoft Office – create projects of your choice using Word, PowerPoint and Excel.

Please continue with these projects -

Word – write letters to your family and friends, research a topic of your choice and write a report or a piece of persuasive writing.

PowerPoint – use animation to create a slideshow for the rest of your family on a subject of your choice.  Think about adding hyperlinks to videos and/or sound.

Excel – collect data; what types of birds visit your garden?  How often do they visit?  How many of each type visit? Keep an eye on the weather, how many days does it rain or the sun is out?  If you have a thermometer, take and record the outside temperature.

Sending emails – work with your child to create an email address if appropriate and send family and friends emails; this does need to be a supervised activity.

 

Monday 23rd March - Friday 3rd April

 

Phonics – Reading at home with or without parents; reading a variety of different media – newspapers, leaflets etc. Use Reading Eggs to complete the lessons and find books to read.

RE – Does God exist?  We have been thinking about our own opinion on this and why we believe or not.  Research the Creationism v Evolution debate and the Accident or Design theory – discuss and model reasoning for your own ideas so that your child gets the idea.

Duke of Edinburgh – Think about the Countryside Code and make a poster to show Respect, Protect, Enjoy.  Check your kit lists to make sure you have everything you will need.  Practice packing and unpacking you rucksack and holdall to fit everything inside.

College – Art and Design; choose a theme and have a go at making a diorama (3D box design) using materials that you can find around the house.  Write a small presentation and present to the rest of the family!

Think specifically about the calendar and time; reading the time both on analogue and digital clocks.  Work out the amount of time between events, i.e. dinner is at 6.30pm, it is now 5.15pm – how long have you got left on your Xbox?  Can you find a clock that has Roman Numerals on it?  Can you identify the numbers?  Can you read the time?  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zkfycdm/articles/zcrmqty
