Monday 11th January 2021 – Home Learning Ideas

A very good morning to you all! We hope that you had a lovely weekend full of rest and recharge. It was great to hear from you last week. Just a reminder that there is no right or wrong way to do home learning. We understand that we are setting tasks for 60 completely unique situations and that no two families are the same in their circumstances. Do what you can and do it in a way that is manageable for you and your family. If we can help, just send us an email – we will do our best! We are trying to set tasks where printing is optional. You can present your learning in ways that work for you.

Here is a summary of your learning ideas for today:

Lockdown idea: Who doesn’t like watching the birds feed in the garden? Perhaps you could make your own using just a large four-pint milk bottle. Felt tips is all you need to colour the plastic, but people have been sticking paper, feathers and other things on to make them bright and colourful.

Solving life’s problems: multiples

English: Japanese fairy tale writing

Topic: Japanese Manga

Here is some more information for you:

Lockdown idea – make your own bird feeder:

Milk Carton Bird Feeder

  • Clean and dry an empty milk carton.
  • Cut a hole big enough for a bird to fit.
  • Punch a hole in the top of the feeder and thread a string through. Tie at the top and secure.
  • Decorate as you wish. …
  • Once the bird feeder is dry, fill with birdseed and hang.

Multiples: we are going to begin a topic on fractions towards the end of the week. Fractions are so much easier if you know your times tables and understand multiples. Here are some videos and tasks to help:

Can you think of some exciting ways to show your understanding of multiples? Perhaps you could create a poster or create your own game.

English: Japanese Fairytale

This week, we are going to write our own Japanese fairytale using the skills we recapped last week.

Here is a fairytale for you to read. We will base our learning tasks on this story but you may choose to make up your own throughout the week.

Can you summarise the story? You could create your own comic strip or story board.

Topic: Create your own Manga character

Draw your own characters – as many or as few as you like!

Have a lovely day everyone!
